Just about ever video game franchise focuses on the adventures and trials of one or a few major characters within their respective universes. Link, Zelda and Ganondorf are the three individuals when applying this formula to The Legend of Zelda. These characters are the center of nearly all of the games in the series, with their roles differing slightly each time they appear. However, while we control Link, we encounter various side-characters that offer us help along our journeys in the land of Hyrule. They provide insight into the events of the game, weapons and items or even simply a good laugh or a touching story. While occasionally taken for granted, these side-characters surely are one of the strongest pillars of the entire Zelda franchise.
