The producer of Hyrule Warriors Legends has recently confirmed that new playable characters—beyond Toon Link, Tetra, and King Daphnes—are coming to the series alongside its 3DS installment, and we’re excited again thinking of new possibilities. In the past we’ve discussed how we’d love to see Groose, Vaati, Medli, Linebeck, and plenty of others, but a lot of our choices were amongst the most common. Now that we know it’s happening, we decided to have another round of character choices, and this time we pulled from a pool of less-suggested characters.

This is one of the subjects we discussed on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Be sure to check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts on what characters we’d love to see, or check below for a brief list of our mentions.

In the discussion we cover characters that we’d love to see join the cast, despite standing a slim chance against more popular choices like Groose and Vaati. We touch upon Ravio, Yuga, Saria, Agahnim, the Happy Mask Salesman, Guru Guru (player of the Song of Storms), Kaepora Gaebora (the instructional owl), and even the classic Old Man. We also have a long discussion about Skull Kid, whom we never mentioned in our previous discussion, and whether he’d really make as good a character as some might think.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
