10 Famous Video Game Characters Known by Millions Worldwide: Page 6 of 10

You know who these guys are

5. Link/Zelda

It is Link, not Zelda people.

Everybody loves Zelda! Or wait… is it Link? Unless you’ve actually played the games, it is unlikely that you will be able to name this character correctly. For your information, his name is Link. So for clarification: Link is the guy with the long ears, sword and shield, and green outfit. Zelda is the princess that asks for Link’s help.

Each Zelda game tells a different story and they are not necessarily related. A recurrent theme though is that the young boy named Link is called upon to find relics of some sort and defeat the evil Ganondorf. The Legend of Zelda is probably the most popular and renowned adventure game to date, and so everyone recognizes Link… or Zelda.
