The Homeless Link We Spotted At Comic-Con

By Ishaan . July 21, 2013 . 6:30pm

At Comic-Con, we ran into a cosplayer dressed as… a homeless Link. He was playing songs on his ocarina in the hopes of picking up some spare change. Hero business must be slow in Hyrule.



We can’t imagine where all those Rupees from broken pots went either. Maybe Link shouldn’t have gotten rid of Ganondorf at the end of Twilight Princess, after all.

    We love you Link

    Rent must be really high in Hyrule.

    • Spirit Macardi

      That’s what happens when a government prints so much money that you can stuff every pot in castle town with it.

    • Tell me about it, no one’s wallet is big enough to hold that many rupees. It keeps maxing out at 99.

    • Linhua

      … hence the name.

    This is so not funny, i don’t know why everyone is cracking jokes. This is serious people. Don’t you guys understand that once a hero’s duty is done he loses all value. WHen an evil lord needs saying people are all “oh please help us hero, you are our only hope”

    But then once the evil is slain, sure they throw you a big party but that’s just a nice way of saying “were not gonna give any more f*cks from this point forward.” What’s a hero in a team of peace? Nothing. Just hollow memory. It happens in dragon’s dogma and it happens in FFX-2.

      Dude are you kidding? This is hilarious as fck! We’re cracking jokes because we think its funny :D. Its not really serious, if it was a real hobo i’d probably show more serious feelings but cosplay is a different story. I actually never thought about how a hero’s life would be after their job has been fulfilled.

      But I personally wouldn’t want everyone all over my dick everyday and all day long if I halted any invasion of aliens or prevented a meteor from crashing the earth. Maybe the first few days, but mostly, I would want food, money, gum, a toy yo-yo, and a guitar. That alone is more than enough for me to try and halt a meteor from crashing down on us and stop an alien invasion with my own bare hands. people are definitely going to show gratitude, but not after a while.

      We wouldn’t know what happens behind the scenes in the game to see how other people would treat Yuna for after FFX, or at the end of The Legend of Korra, or Avatar: The last Airbender, or other stories.

      But if you want a protagonist where all of their efforts are done for saving the world but gets bullshit, it’s Persona series. You literally put in more effort to save the world but what sucks is that nobody actually even knows that they can get fucked over without even knowing, so they don’t even owe you anything apparently.

            Welcome to the internet.

          • ShadowDivz

            And that gentlemen is how you pwn.

      • SuperSailorV

        … Sigh.

  • I’ll buy his ocarina for 150 rupees

  • Bigabu Beaze

    Is the man really homeless?

    • revenent hell

      I doubt it highly.

      Not only does he himself look clean but his attire does as well

      If he was really homeless he would put whatever money he had towards “things he shouldn’t waste it on” not spend it on a cosplay outfit.
      I think in the grand scheme of things that would fall pretty low on the list of priorities.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    The day we see Link who don’t have enough rupees.T_T

  • powerlessbump

    So why wasn’t he cutting grass instead?

    • d19xx

      He keeps yelling and grunting while doing it. Neighbors are also complaining and he keeps whatever he finds in the grass….

  • malek86

    Well, suddenly that explains the real reason he’s after the rich Princess Zelda.

  • Niermyico

    I guess SF doesn’t have enough pots for him to smash.

    dat recession.

  • piichan

    I guess he needs all the rupees he can get before his next game comes out.

  • Jirin

    Must have spent all his money on magic powder.

    Or that gambling game from the original Zelda.

    Or he went broke paying people for burning down their door.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Well, there goes the ending of Twilight Princess for me :(..I just got a Wii-U and was just bout to start it.

  • Matt

    HIS REAL NAME IS DAVE BLOOM! I remember him talking about the day he just played his Ocarina and earned money for lunch lol so fucking funny seeing one of my friends mocked on a random website X’D
