    See normally I’d be like guns>sword and shield. But blaster are a bit slower. Does Rex have a more laser-y weapon like a disruptor or something?

  2. Jake_Uzumaki July 23, 2015 at 12:51 am -      #2

    No Disruptor but he has a RPS-6 anti vehicle Rocket Launcher
    and a DS15 with a customized Detonite grenade launcher attachment
    then his custom DC17 blaster pistol set

    Link has the mirror shield, that absorbs tons of heat or cold. Fyi.

    @Pimp
    TP Link doesn’t have the Mirror Shield.

    Please read the match description.

    Oh come on…
    Not only is Twilight princess Link one of the more boring Links. But the dominion rod and the spinner are both arena specific. which means he does not even get his full arsenal.

    Why does everyone like TP Link so much?

    AlttP Link, is just a much better character in general. More equipment, experience ect.

  8. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 9:10 am -      #8

    what is Rex armour made of, and will an explosion go through it?

    “How are you still sour about that? And even if you are, do you really have to spread it everywhere? It just makes you look like a douche.”

    Try to stay on topic here, the match isn’t popular. So we can fill it with talk about comics.

    “Awww, mad you made a mistake? Just deal with it. Stop being a douche and trying to derail threads with sexual comic talk.”

    You poorly chose a link to fight another character. But lets talk about comics here. That sounds nice.

    Twilight princess Link also has the disadvantage of not being able to go wolf form at will.

    The only thing he really has going for him are bomb arrows.

  13. Nsl98 July 23, 2015 at 10:22 am -      #13

    You poorly chose a link to fight another character.

    No, I chose a Link who didn’t have hax magic to make it more interesting.

    You then came into a thread and said a wrong statement. When corrected, you got mad and are now attempting to derail. Just say “My bad” or something. At least it’ll let us know you’re a mature adult and not a child who can’t stand being corrected.

  14. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 10:26 am -      #14

    “No, I chose a Link who didn’t have hax magic to make it more interesting.”

    I agree with Pimp, poor Link choice.

    At least take one of the ones with a mirror shield. At LEAST that.

    TP Link is one of the slower sturdier ones. against a guy with a laser gun, he is screwed.

    I would have gone with end of WW Link, or maybe Minish cap Link, he has some cool, not particularly broken stuff. He also has the Cane of Pacci, which is the greatest zelda item ever, of all time.

    At least take one of the ones with a mirror shield. At LEAST that.

    I’ll do that, but why? That’s making Rex’s main weapons useless, since it’ll just reflect the bolts.

    Link to the Past it is.

  16. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 10:35 am -      #16

    Because if he has the mirror shield he has the potential to not get insta melted by Rex, But rex can still nail him with a good shot, without the mirror shield Link is boned at any kind of range.

    Link to the Past is an interesting choice, but i would suggest you choose a point in his story. He has 4 different equipment sets to choose from.

    Latest incarnation of ALttP Link is actually Links awakening Link.

    ALttP Link is the main character of A Link to the past, oracle of ages, oracle of seasons and Links awakening.

  19. pimpmage July 23, 2015 at 12:32 pm -      #19

    There has been official publications that list various tloz time lines. And I don’t recall ever seeing a Manga listed there.

    Anyway, having the mirror shield is not that great of an advantage nsl. It is only a kite shield, not a tower shield. It cannot encompass his thighs and legs when protecting his more vital areas. With that being said, the heat being absorbed does not immediately reflect off the shield. Judging by the ooc twins boss fight, the shield needs to absorb a shit ton of heat before it can explode outwards. And every blaster showing I’ve seen tells me the shield would never reach that amount of heat just from blaster fire imo.

  20. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 12:37 pm -      #20

    “http://i.ytimg.com/vi/hNC7A3fKvvI/hqdefault.jpg”

    The ALttP Mirror shield is actually quite large.
    – – –
    “With that being said, the shield does not immediately reflect off the shield.

    Uh… I assume beam

    Sometimes it does, and sometimes it does not reflect at all, it depends on which mirror shield.

    ooc?

    Don’t quote links to pages lol. That breaks the hyperlink. Is a bit harder to copy the link on mobile and search it.

    If he mirror shield is the same one from ooc, the mechanics from ooc should be just as valid. And yeah, I meant the twins from ooc.

    “I meant the twins from ooc”

    I do not know what ooc is. It does not fit any of the games that i know of. And i can think of at least 3 with twins, those being OoT, OoA/OoS, MM.

    After some though i assume ooc is a way to abbreviate OoS/OoA

  23. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 1:08 pm -      #23

    Then again…. OoT is the only time that the mirror shield absorbs and or shoots anything…. that i know of…. now i am totally confused.

  24. pimpmage July 23, 2015 at 1:18 pm -      #24

    I meant oot, my bad.

  25. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 1:21 pm -      #25

    kk, no probs

    But there is no way to prove that the OoT mirror shield is the same as the LttP mirror shield.

  26. pimpmage July 23, 2015 at 1:31 pm -      #26

    There is reasonable chance they could have originated from the same desert race of people. With a similar shape and style, could have the same properties of absorption and reflection.

  27. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 1:36 pm -      #27

    I mean, it’s certainly possible, but i don’t find it very likely, aside from the general aesthetic differences which can be dismissed, They interact with beams and such differently, which could also just be down to game play.

    But they are found in completely different places, in different dimensions actually… The LttP Mirror shield is in the Darkworld death mountain temple.

  28. pimpmage July 23, 2015 at 1:48 pm -      #28

    That’s where it’s found, sure. The desert temple in oot is the cultural origin of the use of mirrors. What is the origin of the shield in lttp?

  29. LadyRamkin July 23, 2015 at 1:49 pm -      #29

    I have literally no idea. But it is not the only mirror in ALttP.

    zeldawiki.org/Mirror_Shield

  31. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 8:23 am -      #31

    That Link (see what i did there) doesn’t really show anything about the origins of the aLttP mirror shield. Though i still insist that current incarnation of aLttP Link is LA Link.

    Which means that in this match Link has:
    www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda04-links-awakening-items.php

    And since all of this equipment is a dream of the windfish (which calls into question whether or not he actually has it in this match) his mirror shield is definitely not the same one that OoT Link had.

  32. pimpmage July 24, 2015 at 10:26 am -      #32

    “The Mirror Shield resides in Eagle’s Tower. It can reflect certain types of beams like fire that the old Shield could not reflect before. ”

    Sounds exactly like the mirror shield in oot and ww.

  33. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 10:29 am -      #33

    Well, you were saying that the OoT shield stores heat to a certain capacity and then releases it, which is not what this shield does. That shield is still a dream of the windfish, so whether or not link can have it is still in question.

    Maybe we should start a Link page on the topia. A comprehensive list of Link equipment and feats, anyone that wants to pick a Link for a match can use it as a reference.

    If you still want to derail a match we can do it here

  34. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 10:39 am -      #34

    We would include other things, so that its better than the wiki page.

    Like, it is possible that the Ocarina of time, Wind waker and Link to the past mirror shield are actually the same shield. and could potentially share feats.

    In four sword adventures Link can change direction while using the pegasus boots, which i think gives that Link better “reaction times”?

    The master sword is actually has Demons bane instead of evils bane, and is therefore easier to debate, since evil is relative.

    Twilight princes, windwaker, ocarina of time, and a link to the past ganon are the same Ganon, Windwaker Ganon hassome impressive arrow timing feats. which could potentially apply to the other versions of him.

  35. pimpmage July 24, 2015 at 11:11 am -      #35

    The mirror shield is stated to reflect beams in all incarnations. And not all incarnations have a situation where the shields are given a chance to absorb prolonged beams of heat or cold. So it seems plausible to me.

    This is not detailing. We are discussing the capabilities of a combatant in the match he is currently in.

    Also, respect threads are not my thing really. Sure is nice to pull stuff from them, but I do not want to take the time to create one.

  36. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 11:17 am -      #36

    Being the mirror shield reflecting beams would seem to be a given. absorbing heat or cold, would seem to be a highly specialised trait that has only ever been shown by the OoT incarnation.
    – – –
    “Also, respect threads are not my thing really. Sure is nice to pull stuff from them, but I do not want to take the time to create one.”

    I have never tried to make a respect thread before, im not even really sure where i would start. If i could be bothered…

  37. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 12:49 pm -      #37

    As to the populated city thing, Rex is a soldier right? He would be used to there being collateral damage in combat. Link on the other hand, has never killed another person. Which means that he will probably be more hesitant to whip the explosives out.

  38. Alpha or Omega July 24, 2015 at 12:56 pm -      #38

    We have a respect thread for the entirety of Zelda.
    It has Link in there.
    Granted, only Mea is working on it, and only for calcs. It’s been slow without Negative Zero.

  40. pimpmage July 24, 2015 at 1:06 pm -      #40

    .”absorbing heat or cold, would seem to be a highly specialised trait that has only ever been shown by the OoT incarnation.”

    That specific game you posted the equipment page of mentions that the shield has the capabilities to reflect beams of fire that other shields could not. A trait directly shared by the oot shield.

    When it comes to respect threads, they are almost never that comprehensive. Heck, the space marine thread Maja created is sometimes useful. But if I were to add to it from every book in my collection, that page would easily quadruple in size. But I don’t post new stuff that page ever. I post quotes only onto the relevant threads. It is easier to look up older relevant matches to find lists of feats than any respect thread.

    So does Captain Rex have anything for close range weaponry? Does he use Thermal Detonators?

  45. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 7:21 pm -      #45

    “That specific game you posted the equipment page of mentions that the shield has the capabilities to reflect beams of fire that other shields could not. A trait directly shared by the oot shield.”

    There is a difference between reflecting a beam and ‘absorbing’ storing and releasing’ thermal energy. Quite a sizeable one in fact.

    Which does not matter in the slightest because that is not what happens in OoT.

    Ignore everything i have been saying, i just watched the OoT twinrova battle, and realised that i somehow managed to completely misunderstand what you were saying.

    Ignore that also, i just watched the second half of the OoT twinrova fight, and now i think i do understand what you are saying but i think you are wrong.

    IIRC, he had a bayonetta on their blasters, or at least some clones did in the Legends EU.
    Don’t know for Rex.

    “There is a difference between reflecting a beam and ‘absorbing’ storing and releasing’ thermal energy. Quite a sizeable one in fact.”

    I stated earlier that I didn’t expect the shield to absorb stuff seeing as blaster are pretty weak imo. I was not trying to prove absorbing works too much anyway because it wouldn’t matter. In Link’s Awakening, the ingame description of the shield says that it can deflect beams that his other shields could not. Here is a video of his shield reflecting beams.

    youtu.be/dqZmF2ChOSY?t=413

    If that time stamp doesnt work right, its at 6:53.

  49. Alpha or Omega July 24, 2015 at 9:05 pm -      #49

    Sorry, sorry.
    Meant bayonet.
    Otherwise, all Clone Troopers can manipulate time with their blasters.
    /
    I think he had knives too.
    Don’t remember all the details.

  50. LadyRamkin July 24, 2015 at 9:08 pm -      #50

    “I stated earlier that I didn’t expect the shield to absorb stuff seeing as blaster”

    Okay, i missed that
    – – –
    “In Link’s Awakening, the ingame description of the shield says that it can deflect beams that his other shields could not.”

    It does, but:
    1) The video you posted shows that it does not reflect the beams, it stops them cold.

    2) That is not the shield he would have. He would have the Links awakening mirror shield.
    – – –
    I still think the Links awakening shield will reflect the beams though.
    – – –
    “Otherwise, all Clone Troopers can manipulate time with their blasters.”

    That would be an interesting series. Some kind of war scenario, but with heavy time manipulation powers on both sides. Weapons that slow, speed up, loop, just generally mess with time. I would watch the shit out of that.

  51. Jake_Uzumaki July 24, 2015 at 10:05 pm -      #51

    “I think he had knives too.”

    He has a vibroblade in one of his gauntlets in the Clone Wars: No Prisoners novel. Not sure how long the blade was though, but vibroblades have a reputation of severing limbs with even light touches but again not sure if we’re talking more Assassins Creed hidden blade sized or Predator wrist blade sized.

  52. LadyRamkin July 25, 2015 at 2:13 pm -      #52

    I dont think any of you will care, but i think this is really cool and want to share it, but i dont have any friends.

    So, In “the legend of zelda: WindWaker” Link’s title is “The Hero of the winds”.
    He has an instrument called the wind waker, which he uses to control the wind, and generally makes it do his bidding

    Now, this is the cool bit, before the final battle with the final boss he says this:

    “My country was within a desert.
    When the sun was in the sky, there was a scorching wind. When the moon ascended, a desolate wind… The wind brought death…
    The wind that blew on the land of Hyrule brought something other than death.
    I must have desired that wind.”
    – end quote
    Now this is the really cool bit
    after to finally beat the bastard he says:

    “Ha….ha ha. The wind is…blow…ing…”
    – end quote
    All ganondorfs life he has associated the wind with death
    And thats literally what happened here
    the hero of winds blows in and kills him.
    That is some poetic justice right there

  53. pimpmage July 25, 2015 at 3:08 pm -      #53

    That all makes sense in the timelines too. It may be too early to tell, but Ganon gets resurrected allot in other timelines. It is definitely not the last time we will see him.

  54. Ordo11 July 26, 2015 at 9:29 am -      #54

    Since No Prisoners was a Karen Travis novel, it is probably the size of the wrist blade of a Republic Commando, so thicker and maybe a little bit shorter than an AC blade.

  55. Jake_Uzumaki July 26, 2015 at 10:21 am -      #55

    @Ordo
    okay, so probably minimally useful in this fight

  56. LadyRamkin July 26, 2015 at 10:54 pm -      #56

    Twilight Princess Link has bomb arrows, only Link that does AFAIK. And the hawk… mask… think that gives him sniper scope vision. He is also very accurate of ridiculous distances, Link might actually win in a fire fight.
