Peter Pan and Link: Why so similar?

ZU writes: Many of you have a mental picture of Hyrule’s Hero pop up in your mind when you hear the name Link mentioned. This mental picture no doubt portrays a heroic-looking figure ready to stand against any threat. At the same time, the picture conveys a playful fellow who is always up for the next mini-game. Some might even describe him as very, very manly. Well, this news bit may ruin your mental image of this heroic figure that you held so dear. Of course people have commented on the similarity that is shared by Link and Peter Pan for a long while, but this time the confirmation comes from Miyamoto himself. (3DS, GameCube, Nintendo DS, Retro, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Wii U)

The outfits of both draw from Robin Hood. So....

Well, the article says that Miyamoto revealed in an interview that Takashi Tezuka was inspired by Peter Pan when drawing his sprite, So I guess that's why.

Link does seem more similar to Robin Hood, though. At least as an adult.
