Zelda, The Legend Of Zelda Series

Princess Zelda is indeed legendary. A member of the Hyrule royal family, Zelda serves as the elusive damsel in distress for Link throughout the Legend of Zelda series. And like Link, we've seen different incarnations of Zelda throughout the series - some have been passive, Sleeping Beauty types while others have taken more active, powerful roles, such as in Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. But regardless of role or screen time, Zelda is a true icon in the halls of video game greatness.
Pros: She's young, beautiful, related to royalty, and in many cases, quite powerful.
Cons: She has a habit of disappearing for long stretches, and her personality and identity seem to shift unexpectedly.
Should Be Played By: Alexis Bledel, because even though she's not blonde, there's just something about her eyes that evokes Zelda.
