It's been a while since I made a Zelda-themed list. With rumors that the Hylian Heiress's role will be expanded in the upcoming Breath of the Wild, I thought I'd review the series to see how Zelda's characterization has evolved throughout.
In a lot of ways, the series has mostly stuck to the triumvirate of the megalomaniacal Ganon, the mute Link and the reserved Zelda, and let the various ancillary characters do the heavy lifting in terms of quirk and color. Yet there's definitely been times when Zelda's been able to let her hair down. I mean, if she even turns up.
