Young Link is not technically a separate Nintendo character, despite being featured in Super Smash Bros. Melee. He is the younger version of Link as found in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.
- In the game, Young Link's B + Up spinning slash draws the opponent inwards, as opposed to normal Links slash that knocks them back. This lets them have more combo hits.
- Young Link uses Fire Arrows.
- Because he uses the Kokiri sword, his slashing attacks are weaker.
- Young Link's taunt has him drinking Lon Lon milk, in an act of shameful product placement.
