People often make comments about Zelda being just another damsel in distress and that they are getting tired of always having to save her. She is even referred to as "the usual Maiden-in-distress in all Zelda games" on Zelda Wiki. Reading these frequent opinions got me thinking about Zelda's role as the main female character in The Legend of Zelda series and Rachel Boccabella thinks that there is reason to disagree with these common statements.
Zelda's a strong and often independent woman with the important role of ruling over her kingdom and protecting its citizens. Throughout the series she has shown not only her abilities of wisdom and healing, but also tremendous bravery, generosity, perseverance and even skill during battle.
