2) Hero of the Wild
3) Hero of Legend

1. Ocarina of Time
2. Twilight Princess
3. Skyward Sword

I haven't played Age of Calamity but based on just Breath of the Wild, Hero of the Wild isn't boasting a lot of power from what I've seen.

A Link to the Past Link had the full triforce at the end. He is the most powerful. Can give a top 3 or 5 when I get home.

I just like the red outfit. The fire resistant one.

Admit it, you wore a costume for purely cosmetic reasons too.

This.

Banning the complete Triforce might change things, but with the Triforce included the top 3 is going to be just "Links who had the Triforce", and that's aLttP, ALBW, and SS.

Without the Triforce things get a little harder to rank because 2D games rely on a bit of scaling for some of their feats. If you assume gear equivalency and some level of similarity in base physical stats between Links aLttP probably holds onto the top spot. The reason being if he's physically similar to the others and his gear is as good, you end up with a Link with fine stats but some of the best hax on the list. He'd likely lose a 1v1 to some other Links, but in a versus thread being able to become intangible is borderline cheating, and his medallion spells are shown to affect entire regions, so best hax in series.

The other defining factor on a Link tier list, if that's what we're doing, is possession of the Master Sword. That leaves you with HH Link, SS Link, OoT(/MM) Link, TP Link, WW Link, aLttP/Oracles Link, ALBW Link, and arguably LoZ/AoL Link. Also BotW Link who seems to exist in an AU, and Age of Calamity!BotW Link who exists in an AU of that AU.

Of the available 9 (or 10, depending how you interpret AoC Link) pot gremlins available my top picks are:

OoT/MM, aLttP/Oracles, SS, WW, and **** it, that's all, you get 4. Lists of 5 are overrated. I'm not going to order them because their relative power depends somewhat on scaling and statements.

Who would you say the best Link is without any gear other than just his sword and shield, ie. which version is the most skilled fighter?

Also which version has the most powerful magic? Which version is the strongest physically?

Gets punked by any Link with the Master Sword and some without.

Most skilled fighter probably goes to OoT Link who never seems to stop being able to school TP Link, but SS Link could be the one, too. He humiliated Ghirahim and impressed the shit out of Demise. Most magically powerful depends on what you mean. Just who gets the best spells? Scale/destructive power of said spells? Probably aLttP, but the magic arrows aren't to be ****ed with, either. Any Link with the Triforce automatically tops the list on that one. Physically strongest is complicated, since it depends on whether items count and even then it's murky. TP Link is a safe bet, no strength enhancing items required, just raw retard strength.

Interesting point, I figured TP Link would be the most skilled but I guess OoT Link taught him everything he knows.

BotW Link is probably up there too, he was trained from an early age as a knight.

And that's nice, but there are Link's that are capable of cutting the goddamn continent in half. Losing to a bunch of Guardians and letting a bunch of monsters wear him out is hardly "the best of the best".

The game directly says he was wounded by Ganon. Even so, early/pregame Link =/= end game Link. Talk to the goddess statue when you already have all of the spirit orbs to see what I mean.

With that said, BotW Link doesn't have the same kinds of direct feats the others I listed have. His implied power is great, but that applies to all Links, and most others have more direct showings.

Yeah to be fair that was before the game.

Also what Link can cut the continent in half?

Any Link with the Master Sword should be able to do so. As to why he would, well, maybe he just really hates the ground that day, I guess.

Skyloft was cut out of the Earth and raised by the sword. For context, the Kingdom of Hyrule spans two continents per AoL, the Zelda Encyclopedia and IIRC also HH.
