01. ABOUT LINK
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
Link is a character that you start with in the game. You have to do absolutely 
nothing to earn him. In my opinion he is the best character in this game and yet he 
isnít a secret character. Weird isnít it, but it makes it easier to get good with 
him right away.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
02. WHAT LINKíS LIKE 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
I love to use link in any battle and hereís why. He is good in any type of 
situation, for example: Heís got 3 long-range attacks, all good ones too, and 
amazing close combat moves which will scare any opponent. 


He is a very good ONE-ON-ONE opponent because if they get far way he keeps them on 
their toes constantly with long range attacks and no one likes to have to keep 
dodging. If they get near him heís got very powerful smash attacks, and lots of them 
too, and small moves that quickly rack up the damage.

In FREE-FOR-ALL he is amazing because if he gets surrounded then he hits them with a 
very powerful special upward B attack that sends everyone to their doom. Instead of 
going in close combat he also can sit far away and shoot everyone with his arrows, 
boomerang, or my personal favorite bombs. (Bombs can hit more people than one)

Heís great to have as a TEAMMATE because he can back any close-combat teammate up 
with long range attacks, DONíT USE BOMBS, they can hit your teammate and if heís a 
person really annoy him. (Sometimes itís funny though) If you donít want to just sit 
there and rack up the damage against you opponents, you can go in for the kill in 
close combat by using all his most powerful finishing attacks.

03.	A-ATTACKS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
[Neutral-A] 
Link will perform two small attacks with his sword. If you keep pressing it 
repeatedly, very fast, he will do a special combo of small attacks that ring up the 
damage.
Try to get your opponents against a wall and do that to keep them from getting away 
and do as mush damage as youíd like. There are a few downsides to this move, one of 
them is that if you do it, it leaves your character very vulnerable to any other 
opponent around you. Itís best to do if there is only one opponent. Another downside 
is that you have to press is very, very fast and I personally get tired hands if I 
do it for too long.

[Slightly Forward-A]
You do a bit more of a powerful slash, with your sword, then the neutral-A

[Slightly Down-A]
He does a downward slice with his sword. Semi- powerful and good to use against 
small opponents. It knocks them pretty high up.

[Slightly Up-A]
Itís a small upward slash. Quick but not so powerful. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
04.	SMASH A-ATTACKS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
[Forward-A]
Link will do a very powerful sword slash, but what makes it even better is that 
right after he does it press a just A again to make it a two slash combo. The second 
one is even more powerful than the first.

[Downward-A]
He does a very nice downward slash in front of him, and then behind him. Good for if 
you are surrounded.

[Upward-A]
Link will perform a 3 combo slash that does massive damage. First he knocks his 
opponents up just a little, enough for him to juggle them with the second part of 
the combo. The second part does the same as the first, but he third sends them 
flying high.

-----------------------
.05	SWEET B-ATTACKS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
[Neutral B-Arrow]
A great long range move that can be made more powerful and have a bigger distance of 
flight by holding B. The best part about it is that you can hold it in your bow for 
as long as you want and wait for the easy shot. The only thing is that you canít 
move when your charging it.

[Forward B-Boomerang]
A very tricky long range attack that can hit an opponent just about where ever he is 
on the battle stage. If you hold forward when heís throwing in he will give it a 
bigger distance to attack. If you hold diagonal up right as heís about to throw it 
then you throw it diagonal up, same as for diagonal down except for that it goes 
down. This move is great for bouncy opponents.

[Downward B-Bomb] 
Link pulls out a bomb which you can throw hard at your opponent by pressing down B 
while holding it. A nice little thing about it is that you can move around with it 
while itís in you hand, just donít hold it too long or itíll blow up in your face 
and hurt yourself. The only bad thing about it is you can hurt yourself and your 
teammates, so be careful when using it.

[Upward B-Spin Attack] 
This move is my personal favorite move that Linkís got for a few reasons. It kills 
people at even low health, it hits on both sides of him at the same time, it lasts a 
while, it doesnít just knock people far away but also a little downward which makes 
it harder for most characters to make it back to the battle stage, and the best part 
is that itís a little different in the air. In the air it hits people on every side 
of link except for below him. It gets them stuck in the spinning then at the end of 
the move in nails them far, far away.

06.	OPPONENTS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------  
[Swordsmen: Link, Young Link, Marth, Roy] 
Against Swordsmen, you want to be the first to act. Start juggling combos from above 
and below, and then try to trap them in your multi-hitting sword slashes (done by 
pressing A quickly). Throws are handy to keep them out of commission for a moment or 
two. Just don't give them a chance to hit you, and they're putty in your hands. 

[Speedsters: Fox, Pikachu, Falco, Pichu, Captain Falcon]
 When facing other speedsters, it's a race to be the first to entrap the other in a 
series of quick hits. Be the first, and you're fine. You can damage your opponent a 
ton and then finish them. If you get caught, dodge, jump, do whatever it takes to 
get out of your opponent's grip so you can try to get back at your foe. 

[Close Range: Dr. Mario, Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Mr. Game & Watch, Ice Climbers]
 You want to treat these guys like Swordsmen. Toss them around and entrap them in 
multiple back and forth hits with the arrows. It's also a good idea to use bombs and 
the forward smash attack.

[Long Range: Ness, Samus, Mewtwo]
 Get close to these guys other wise you maght as well just keep killing yourself, 
these guys love to just keep pounding at you so attack their weakpoint, close 
combat. Otherwise, treat these guys like Close Ranges, and juggle more than you 
normally would, since that's their weak point. [Lightweights: Kirby, Jigglypuff, 
Peach, Zelda] Don't let these guys touch the ground, and they'll have a lot more 
trouble. Since Links smash attacks tend to send enemies high in the air, use them a 
lot. Edge-guard like crazy, and long range guys shouldn't be able to harm you badly. 

[Heavyweights: Donkey Kong, Bowser, Ganondorf]
Heavyweights are the difficult ones for Link. Basically, do what you usually do and 
don't give them breathing room. You'll want to rely more on arrow, bombs, and the 
boomerang, since these guys have mostly close-up attacks. Also, be sure to blast at 
them with finishing attacks.

I got most of this section from [STEPHEN ALMANZAR]

07. SECRETS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------
Link has a few things that not many people know about him. First or all if you press 
the Z button in mid air you will use the hookshot as an attack, but you can also use 
it to hang from the edge if you hit it right. It is very tricky to use but it has 
saved me many a battles. What you do is first your midair jump and then you dodge 
toward the edge you can surprisingly still use your hookshot to hook the edge, be 
sure not to be too close or you wont hook the edge, when you are hanging there with 
your hookshot press Z again to pull yourself up and then press upward-B. It all 
sounds like a lot but you will get it down after a few tries. Only do this if you 
donít think your upward-B will allow you to make it back to the battle stage.

If you have a teammate and they grab the opponent tell whom ever is on your team to 
keep hitting them while holding them. The reason is if you get close to the opponent 
you can do your neutral A repeatedly and there is no way for them to escape. I love 
to sometimes get the opponent to 999%.
