Really? Because in an interview Aonuma said it mightactually not be Link, since no-one specifically stated it was him.

Yeah that was what I meant. I meant things like height wasn't representative of his looks, because it has more to do with his age instead, I agree he's young.

But no, I'm not seeing it. He looks more like TP/SS style Link to me than ALBW style Link, but a younger version.


How could you possibly think he looks like a younger SS and TP Link then? I gave concrete, factual, objective evidence against that. I don't think he looks like ALBW Link. I just think his hair looks similar, which it does.

Concrete, factual and objective evidence?

Not exactly, it looks what I think it looks like, and obviously we think it looks like two different things because it's only based on an individual observation and interpretation of a visual representation. And then there's other people here that think it looks different to each of our two views as well even. I don't know what you're trying to prove, or why you're so adament about it.

Yes. Concrete, factual and objective evidence.

His eyes are bigger and a completely different shape. That's a fact. Not an opinion. His eyebrows are far thinner. That's a fact. Not an opinion. His hair is longer. That's a fact. Not an opinion. He is shorter. That's a fact. Not an opinion. His sideburns are much longer, like that of Link's from ALBW. That's a fact. Not an opinion. He's younger looking. That's speculation based on plausible fact. Not opinion. Concrete, factual and objective evidence. It doesn't "look like what you think it looks like." This isn't Picaso. That's like saying that 2+2=256 because that's your own individual observation and interpretation. No. That's factually wrong. 2+2=4. 2+2 will always equal 4. This Link does not resemble SS or TP Link.

There are core, structural, concrete, and factual differences between them. They aren't views. They aren't opinions. This isn't "TP Link looks uglier than new Link." This is "one Link looks like another Link."

Oh, do they? How? Where are the similarities, exactly? What is the objectively the same about them? What concrete features give you enough to come to that conclusion? TP Link has concrete, factual similarities to SS Link. They aren't identical, but they have enough factual identicalities to draw a justifiable comparison. Zelda U Link has none, except vague likenesses like brown hair of any shade, pointy ears, and earings. That is, unless you have any factual proof that he does. Where is your proof.

"I have none. It just looks like what I think it looks like."

...No it doesn't. You're wrong.



Well, this is new.

Sure, whatever you want. Be happy with that and think what you think and let me think what I think, because you're arguing at nothing and because of nothing you went on some kind of crusade because I once mentioned this Link looked like a younger version of a TP/SS styled Link. This isn't really worth it.

...

You're also good at putting words in my mouth I see.

It's not what I think. It's fact. You don't "think" it's fact? Prove it. I didn't say anything you didn't either say, or imply by not saying something.
