I wish we could have partnered with Rhyme at one point in TWEWY
Introducing, pocket penguin! Everyone should have a pocket penguin. ^u^
I’m nearly 30…I’ve been playing the Zelda franchise for nearly 20 years…I still fail to see how she’s legendary. She stays in a castle most times, is being held by Ganon/Ganondorf, and can’t stay out of his way. Not to mention that she’s ASLEEP for all of Zelda 2, until Link wakes her right at the end. I mean, sure, she possesses a piece of the Triforce, but so does Link and Ganon, and occasionally she helps Link out when she’s not being held captive. But Link does almost all the hard work to rescue her time and time again. You don’t see a Mario game entitled Super Peach Bros, since similarly, Peach is frequently nabbed by Bowser and Mario has to traipse through the Mushroom Kingdom a bajillion times to save her. Unless Zelda IS Link, and then that throws the entire series for a loop. Her as Sheik, though? That was useful.
Haha. Hahaha. Hahahaha.
Hasn’t anyone ever told you it’s rude to tag your hate?
Just because someone doesn’t run in guns-a-blazin’ or sword held high doesn’t mean they’re USELESS. What about Wind Waker, where she was a fucking pirate captain before the whole business started? At a very young age, too. You don’t get much more badass than that.
Or how about shooting arrows from horseback? At a MOVING target? Horses aren’t like cars. They’re bumpy as fuck. I’ve ridden enough horses to tell you that. Not to mention saving Midna from certain death at the cost of her own life. You know, Midna? With the giant hand that fucked shit up? Midna, who helped save Link’s ass many a time?
Also, what part of Triforce of POWER do you not get? Of course someone’s gonna get overwhelmed by someone who has sheer power going for them. It takes a smart cookie to maneuver around them and undo all the shit they did, which is, hello, EXACTLY WHAT SHE DID.
Also, there IS a Mario game where you play as Peach rescuing Mario. It’s called Super Princess Peach. I played it. It’s a rather decent game. Some might call it a little sexist due to her powers being based on emotions, but I’m willing to cut her some slack due to one of said powers being TURNING INTO A GIANT NEAR-INVINCIBLE BALL OF HELLFIRE.
Get the fuck out of the Princess Zelda tag.
Reblogging this because some people STILL don’t get it
Yeah, maybe Link’s the Hero, but that doesn’t make Zelda useless.
I legitimately can not take anyone who calls themselves a Legend of Zelda fan seriously as a fan or a human being if they hold a negative opinion towards the princess. She is a character who is shown to rise up in adverse circumstance and this is made even more clear in the newer games. The classics did operate very strongly on a ‘damsel in distress’ pattern, but this is because that The Hyrule Fantasy was built with a similar structure to old fantasy stories. It’s become clear that through her actions in each game where she plays a role that she is a key character who, without the presence of, Link would be very very screwed.
Ocarina of Time is a major example of this in that she evaded Ganondorf for seven years while in hiding, guiding Link through his way in the dangers of the story and is only caught in a moment of vulnerability at the end. Wind Waker is a beautiful example of how important Zelda is through Tetra. Spirit Tracks? She’s useless in SPIRIT TRACKS? Where she’s your sidekick?Twilight Princess? Wherein the Princess is less active in the game, but the major progressor of the story itself? Or did you not notice that detail? Let us not forget Skyward Sword, which she is also - again, WOW here - a key role and the major reason the game even happened. She literally, in this game, explained and defined the entire storyline and continued reincarnations of her and Link.
Don’t talk shit about Zelda around the fandom we will fry your ass.
(I can see both sides of this argument. While yes, she’s useless in some of the games, she’s also extremely helpful in others. You have to remember. They’re all DIFFERENT Zeldas. They can’t ALL be strong allies in a time of need. Some of them WILL be the helpless damsel, but others, like TP Zelda will be willful heroines. Others, like ST Zelda will be helpless heroines or willful damsels, not WANTING to help at first but ending up a powerful ally and great friend. But remember. They’re not ALL the same girl, so you can’t say they’re all helpless or all helpful.)
^ also this is a really good point!
Just saying, the original point of this post was saying how ridiculous it is that the series is called Legend of Zelda.
bless the followers who tolerate your 95% fandom posts that aren’t even their fandom

can we just talk about this for a minute
because seriously i have so much respect for the adventure time team. they’ve made a successful cartoon that isn’t random poop and fart jokes for a solid eleven minutes. sure, adventure time has its immature moments, but then there’s parts like this.
pb’s backed up against the wall in a position that’s way too common in today’s society. you can tell she’s scared and uncomfortable. so what does she do? she beats the shit out of ricardio.
she doesn’t “play nice”, she doesn’t “let him down gently”, she tears off his limbs and stomps on his face. then ricardio tries to play the nice guy card and she has none of it. it’s refreshing to see something aimed at children that doesn’t state that girls need to be polite and sweet and stand by while someone makes them uncomfortable.
basically, i love this show and i love how it teaches girls something that’ll actually come in handy some day. god fucking bless.
And this is back on the dash again. Always reblog.
I don’t watch this, never have, but damn o.o win.
do you ever hear the intro theme to a video game and you get really emotional and your heart feels really weak like it’s coming back home and it’s basically like that whole world you love so much summed up into one epic song and you just want to fucking cry a lot because this is the video game for you and nothing else ever can even compare to the feeling you get when you hear that one fucking bit of music
