SUBSCRIBE for Every Theory! ►►
It's been a while since I talked about Legend of Zelda, and since Nintendo released a teaser trailer for Breath of The Wild 2, I figured it was about time we revisited the franchise. I've talked a LOT about this world, its timelines, and pretty much every version of Link there is - so what's left? Well Theorists, today we are doing some heavy lifting and figuring out just how strong our hero Link REALLY is!

I think another impressive feat with Link is in breath of the wild. My guy can swing that Hylian shield (and other ones that are more likely solid metal) fast enough and strong enough to perfectly re-direct laser blasts, Talos rocks, Hinox arm slams, and Lynel everything's!

Wait, but a deadlift is a lower back exercise. Link has probably developed a super back for having to carry everyone and their problems 😂 so he does pull ups and curls, but not cardio or squats (soooo slow on the iron boots!)🧐 the Hero needs a better rounded exercise routine 😂

Now in case you're not able to calculate pounds into stones, then I'll help you out. 252 pounds is exactly 18 stone and considering that I'm just over 17 stone, are you effing kidding me.

Meanwhile, when Steve picks up a full inventory of shulkerboxs of gold blocks, he exerts about the same surface gravity as Triton, the moon of Neptune. Link can't even lift 2 blocks of gold.

You know what's annoying is that your terraria character can carry three inventory's worth of gold with each stack at 999 blocks. (if your using the piggy bank and safe items)

There might be comments on this, but technically, the gold deadlift is even harder because Link not only has to lift it, but he chucks the thing more than it's own height into the air. At least he has good form while doing it.

How about BOTW, where link can stop a lynel's full charge completely with a shield parry?
C0IN_FLIP Måned siden
BOTW confirms that that the Hero of the Wild, has abs. A gerudo says to link, "I could barely see your abs." BOTW link has not been doing situps... he could parry a charging lynel but that is about it. He can still glide with all his stuff in his pocket, which is not as impressive as Steve being able to fly with wings and a bundle of fireworks with bundles of gold inside of him.

You forgot to measure gravity. How the walls rub against the blocks. I mean dude. Seriously. Would you be able to move it fast while there are walls keeping it from going fast? Or even how much effort he needs. Minecraft doesn't have its gravity. You can literally build a wall in the sky without anything holding it there.

@RULES OF NATURE I am not talking about running speed/ travel speed, I’m talking about combat speed (aka how fast they are when they fight) and Sonic would be in slow motion. No Link even comes close to BOTW Link’s speed, agility, strength of power and I have researched that.
RULES OF NATURE 29 dager siden
I would say other versions of link would be stronger. Also about speed, links running speed in botw may be fast but I think sonic is faster.
