After Link claimed the legendary Master Sword in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, seven dark years passed, with Ganondorf successfully taking over the kingdom of Hyrule. During those seven years, Princess Zelda went into hiding and disguised herself as Sheik, a young member of the Sheikah race. Sheik aids Link in his adventure and teaches him songs that allow him to teleport back to each of the dungeons in Hyrule.
In this iteration of Smash Bros., Sheik can no longer transform into Zelda, and vice versa. Sheik’s ninja-like appearance is complemented by swift and powerful physical attacks, her brisk movements, her ability to Vanish in a cloud of smoke, as well as her new Down Special, the Bouncing Fish.
