So after the latest batch of news I figure I have a good handle on what seems to be what will happen with this game. I’m going to open up with the things i’m pretty sure will happen and follow them up with things that would be cool but aren’t as likely.
The twilight princess DLC was confirmed to have a triforce of Power set as well that wasn’t revealed. This set of costumes not only says that Ganondorf is in the game but also that villains will indeed be playable. This also says the easiest thing to predict with is that Twilight Princess Ganondorf and Demise will be outfits for Ganondorf. I could be wrong since the power set is only two DLC costumes as opposed to the three wisdom and courage have. Demise may just not exist or just be a separate character. I won’t be mentioning forms of ganon in the list because we can assume they are in the game. With twilight princess getting two characters and a villain I think the same will happen with skyward sword and at least one more game.
Skyward Sword: Groose is the most likely second character given Agitha’s appearance. He will likely use a loftwing somewhere in his moveset and some funny stuff. Ghirahim is the confirmed villain.
Ocarina of Time: So this is for sure one of the most popular games in the series so I doubt we won’t see this game have characters brought in. We do have the boss reference but I doubt that is where it ends. Nabooru seems like a perfect fit given the amazing amount female characters in the game. She is a sage and she has a lot going for her as a character. The next character is a lot harder for me to pick, it could be Malon having a fun farm based move set, could be Darunia or Princess Ruto to display other races, or maybe it’s someone random. Twinrova feels like the most likely villain to join the fray given the amount of references these ladies get. Unlike a lot of other Zelda games Ganondorf is the villain you are eyeing the whole time so it makes it a harder choice.
Classic Zeldas: Classic Zelda really only had a few characters that don’t already exist in the game. Still I doubt they won’t try to reference these games in some way, shape or form. Agahnim from link to the past could show up as a villain but you got me other wise.
Majora’s Mask: Skull kid, done, best post ever. Ok in all seriousness Skull kid is pretty likely but with how much fun they are having with characters id say so is the Happy Mask Salesmen. We already have some reference to the game with the moon and the great fairy design seems similar to that game. I find it very hard to believe Tingle won’t be in this game in some how. Id guess he is a playable character who focuses on floating around in the air with balloons. I don’t think a lot of other characters really fit but Fierce Deity should be in the game in game.
The Wind Waker: I have a hard time seeing a way to bring Wind Waker into this. However, the game is loaded with fun characters. The games also hurt by Zelda using the Wind Waker as an alt weapon. Medli really would be a crazy fun character to fly around as. Tetra is my most wanted character and id LOVE to see her kick some ass in this game. I think the main problem for this game is it doesn’t have a villain out of Ganondorf. Maybe the giant ass bird.
A link between Worlds: I don’t know how likely this game is to be referenced just because they may have not know much of this game when developing it. This game does have a none Ganon villain in the form of Yuga who could have an amazing paint based move set. The game also have the fun Hilda character and charming Irene who both would fit the game rather well (Other then maybe looking odd as kids). Ravio could also work using items that maybe aren’t in the game but are in a Link Between Worlds but I don’t seem him as likely as the two ladies I just mentioned.
Spin Offy Zeldas: I’m lumping them all together not because they don’t have a lot of cool characters, because they do have a ton, but because their likelyhood feels a lot smaller then the rest. These games are considered some of the lower tier Zelda games but I will mention them in the same way as the previous games, just know I don’t find any likely.
Spirit Tracks: Alfonzo should be stepping in for Link, it’s only natural. Byrne has a cool look that could translate into a cool character. Chancellor Cole would make a very interesting villain to play as although a moveset isn’t super clear to me from the start.
Phantom Hourglass: Tetra again, my second vote for Tetra. Bellum actually really works as a baddie with lots of possible moves. Bellum could use the Bellumbeck form then use the tentacles from his normal form. Linebeck could also work maybe idk, I quit.
Capcom: Capcom made a few Zelda titles for Nintendo and out of the stuff they made Vaati stands out the most. Out side of forms of Ganon Vaati is the most reused villain in fact the only one really used from one game to the other. Outside of that we have plenty of characters that could be fun to see but none that feel very likely.
