Hey guys, I'm working on a redesign of big 3 Legend of Zelda characters. I'm work on Link right now and I've got a design I really like, but there's one element I haven't made a decision about yet: his hat. I've got elements that are definitely Link: green and white color scheme, blond hair, LEFT HANDED (I'm not a lefty, but not in favor of making him a righty) but haven't decided whether or not he needs the hat. So weigh in, Tankers. Does Link need his hat? Or can he still be Link without it?

He can be Link without the hat like Luke Skywalker can be Luke without his lightsaber or Han Solo can be Han without a vest, but really he should have it because it's sort of iconic :) Good luck, man!

Link never goes very far without that hat... Are you working on a "Modern Age" or a more classic styling? If the former, one of the boonie hats from recent Joes could work alright in place of the standard cap.

He needs his hat if he is wearing his tunic.

He's more of a gritty update - rather than a green tunic he's wearing green armor with gold accents and chain mail sleeves to the elbow. His forearms are still clad in white with some leather straps and his pants are still white with brown boots and gloves. I'm just trying to make him a bit grittier, a bit less cartoony, but still very Link and still very fantasy oriented.

I think you mean tunic.

But given the stuff he's been through, yes, I suppose it make sense he'd have a bit of a drinking problem.

I fixed it... What would Hylians drink?

I hear LonLon Milk hits harder than a Goron.
