The Princess of Hyrule, and titular heroine of The Legend of Zelda series. Being one of the true sages of Hyrule and the holder of the Triforce of Wisdom, she is usually the target of Ganondorf’s means to rule the world, forcing her into self-sacrifice.
However, in Smash Bros., Zelda makes her first playable appearance in a Nintendo title. With her magical gifts, Zelda is highly capable of defending herself. Her conglomerate moveset takes inspiration from several Zelda games, primarily Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, as well as Spirit Tracks. Her Lightning Kicks are among the most powerful aerial attacks in the game, but they have to be precisely aimed to hit foes with their sweetspots. And in this game, Zelda is a separate character from her alter ego, Sheik.
