TriviaEdit

  • Link's Shadow, Dark Link, and Shadow Link were once considered the same entity. However, since the release of the Hyrule Historia, it has been confirmed Link's Shadow is a separate entity from the two others. Though Zelda Universe treats the three as one.
  • Although Hyrule Historia calls him Link's Shadow, he is referred as Shadow Link in NES Remix 2 and Dark Link on Zelda.com. His true name can be debatable.
