Link is Short by Deidara-Clone Link is Short by Deidara-Clone
I'm just bored. It's been cloudy and rainy all week, so my motivation to do anything else is low. So, yeah, Link is short regardless.

Maybe it is on purpose to fit the average height of japanese people! XD Just kidding.

*shrugs* I don't think the Japanese are THAT short.

It is one of those weird quarks Nintendo did with his character. Most main characters are taller than the majority of people they encounter, or at least equal height. But when Link jumped to 3D, he was made the opposite way. 
Then again, you never really know what his age is inside the games. You just have Kid Link and Adult Link. For all we know, 'Adult' in Hyrule could be 16. He does look low-twenties, though, so maybe he's just a late bloomer and still have growing to go.

He was short even in the 2D games 0.o

But yeah, that's true.  But don't forget, these are all different incarnations of Link, so chances are they're still pretty young.  And if I recall correctly, guys don't stop growing till they're 20 (?), so if Link is between, I'd say 14-18 (seems to be a safe range ignoring Kid Link), he still has some time left.

I think that it was said that TP link was the oldest of all of them at 17. Most "Adult" Link(s) are 16. FD Link is supposed a grown adult and his height is said to be around 7'6" or something like that. I'm guessing it's just the influence of the God mask but wouldn't that be a hoot that that's actually Link's adult height and size and unfortunately he just does most of his growing around 18-20 or something. LOL it would kill me. That he grows only after all the life threatening stuff, especially since a bigger body would help in some fights, ... not sure if Epona could safely transport him though.

FD Link?

Well he still has a few more years ahead of him to keep growing.  But damn, 7'6"?  He'd dwarf Ghirahim!  Epona's a pretty big horse; she'd support him.  As long as she's worked a lot, she'll have plenty of strength.

Fierce Deity Link. Also Ganondorf is said to 7'8" in height so even then Link would be two inches shorter than him.

Ah, Fierce Deity.  Too bad he only appeared in one game.

Ganondorf's 7'8"?  Then Demise has to be at least TWICE that!
Mathiais Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014
The official record if my memory serves me puts Demise at 3.5 Meters which is nearly 11'6".
