*does basically nothing*
It’s Zelda! She doesn’t do much, but she’s pretty and she’s the titular character so I drew her.
ive never seen “is the most powerful character in every installment of the franchise” spelled that way
Man okay, so I’ve only finished two games, Windwaker and Ocarina, and this is my frustration with Zelda. She is absolutely set up to be a really powerful character, but she only ever is when she is being someone else. Tetra is amazing and sassy and so much fun, but as soon as she becomes Zelda she just what, sits in Hyrule twiddling her thumbs of her own free will? And then as soon as the game is over she’s Tetra again and she goes off to explore the world. And in Ocarina it’s a similar sort of thing: she becomes Shiek out of necessity and then as soon as she reveals herself to be Zelda she gets trapped in crystal. Zelda could be awesome, and in Skyward Sword she’s shaping up to be. But so far she has only been a badass either in a traditionally male role or straight up pretending to be a man. I want to see a badass princess.
