Is this the same puzzle-solving fairy from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask? And if so, what happened? Because back then even Electra should've been able to use her superior acrobatics to drive one of her sai through his frontal bone.

He can jump of a cliff and take no damage by doing a tuck-and-roll and took a magic lightning blast to face as a nine yearold. He waded through lava and got punched by a goron. Link is one tough cookie. What makes you think Thor can lob his head off?
Can you be a bit more specific in regards to the scenes because I recall most falls in the game being lethal to Link, whether directly lethal—it reset the area as if you never jumped but with one less heart—or indirectly lethal—it did damage and could kill you.
A casual blast meant to knock Link back on
It was pat on the back, not a punch, and it actually hurt him.
And you died if you fell in lava—or the area got reset and you lost a heart. Heck, you even died if you stayed too long in the fire temple without the Red Tunic because it was too hot for him.
No, Link was actually taken out of the Fire Temple to the Temple of Time before the volcano's minor eruption.
In the fire temple you could wade through lava. It hurt but thats only because ITS LAVA. The eruption that happened when he was nine. He got punched by a goron MM. And i was thinking of the cliff when you climb death mountain.
But what has Thor done in the movies to match any of this? Does he have a feat that puts him on Link's level?
I forgot, there is shallow lava in the game that you could walk on and take damage over time for doing so. The problem with that is that it's purely game-mechanical. You wouldn't argue that a herd of hens would deal more damage than being thrown face-down into a pool of lava, would you?
Hit Points—or Hearts in this game—is not a proper gauge of a character's health or durability. It's a meta-fictional game-mechanic used to enrich the player-experience. You don't have Metal Gear fans arguing that Solid Snake can shrug off a tank shell to the face because it didn't drain 100% of his health bar in his fight against Raven on Easy Mode.
You will have to post those scenes yourself because at this point I have no idea what you're referring to.

There is nothing in-game that implies that the Silver- or Golden Gauntlets augment anything other than lifting capacity. For instance: The Megaton Hammer does allow Link to smash two out of the three boulder-types in the game to pieces, and this is not altered in any way after you obtain the gauntlets; if the game designers decided to make the rock that takes to strikes before it's destroyed to take one then you could've made an argument for the Gauntlets augmenting Link's striking power but as it stands you can't.
Its just a game mechanic. The gauntlets were obviously meant to make link stronger especially based on naburu's dialogue and the text box when you get them. The enemies and and the hammer are just game mechanic. The master sword is the most powerful weapon in Zelda lore, yet the biggoron sword does more damage. No one is going to argue that its more powerful than a sentient blade that cut a continent in half.
