5 Video Game Characters and Their Sucky Lives

The Hero’s Shade

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

At first glance, he looks like any average dead guy in armor. You know, normal stuff. But, it is widely speculated that he is the remnants of Link from Ocarina of Time or a manifestation of Link's regrets.

Hear me out.

First, there’s the fact that he appears as a wolf when in the physical world -- the same form Link takes when in the Twilight. Second, there’s also the fact that he knows all the skills you need to know become more powerful throughout your journey -- and he says the previous heroes had them.

Third, Navi (Link’s little blue fairy) leaves at the end of Ocarina of Time, and Link is searching for her in the beginning of Majora’s Mask, when he gets pulled into all that craziness. Combine that with the fact that no one knows Link was a hero and it becomes that much easier to believe he would live a life of regrets, unable to pass on the “lessons of his life to those who came after him”.

In Twilight Princess, you even play the Song of Healing to ease his troubles and cause him to pass on; similar to how the previous Link used it in Majora’s Mask
