Toon Link grew up on Outset Island where it was customary for boys of a certain age to wear the garb of the Hero of Time. On the day he came of age, his sister was kidnapped by a huge bird called the Helmaroc King who was under the orders of Ganondorf to capture “girls with pointy ears”. Determined to save his sister, he set out on a great adventure throughout the seas alongside a talking boat called The King of Red Lions and a legendary baton, the Wind Waker.
Though Toon Link plays similarly to Link, he is superior in speed and some of his attacks vary in properties and execution. For example, his Up Smash features only one slash in comparison to Link’s three. His down aerial is a "stall-then-fall" attack, but now pierces through opponents, so he no longer bounces on contact.
