    I laughed for a second or two…

    Zelda should be more ethnically diverse. They should have black Link, asian Princess Zelda and latino Ganondorf.

    Huh… Can we get a costume change?! I want this guy in black, green is not for him. Oh, and get him a black shield, a black sword…. There we go, now we got a black link… Completely black…

    Meh, I lost where I was going with this. It’s enough to warant a small laugh, but you can do better. Plus Link needs a gun to cap Ganon, not his sword.

    What about his boomerang, or his bow, or maybe even his hook-shot!

  6. freez902 on October 3rd, 2008 6:43 am

    The funny thing is he looks better and much less nerdier than most overweight/very skinny nerdy cosplayers. Still, well made. 5 stars

  8. Chris on October 3rd, 2008 7:42 am

  9. [chemical.kirby] on October 3rd, 2008 7:52 am

    @Nick Soapdish
    Nooooo put Ganon in a wheelchair. It will show people that the handicapped are handicapable… and evil people that want to kill us all!!!! :D

  11. ManiacalZManiac on October 3rd, 2008 8:40 am

    I Actually Laughed Pretty Hard At This. :P

  12. BONK! on October 3rd, 2008 9:16 am


  13. James on October 3rd, 2008 9:19 am

    hoe? Ganon has resorted to stealing garden implements now has he?

  14. Animedevildog on October 3rd, 2008 9:22 am

    @canadian bacon
    Your post suddenly made me regret sendint that one in… WHY!!! QQ

  15. Don on October 3rd, 2008 9:55 am

    Seen it before but still made me chuckle. 3/5

  16. Hajs5 on October 3rd, 2008 10:11 am

    Come on guys, just because this is a nerd site doesn’t mean we have to be racist.(Although it was funny)

  17. dekuskrub1 on October 3rd, 2008 10:19 am

    so what will dark link look like?

  18. 1RPGKID on October 3rd, 2008 11:11 am

    If link was black maybe he’d steal a bike instead of a horse in OoT…

  19. t3h-Sh1zzn1t on October 3rd, 2008 11:21 am

    Everybody, you are confusing racism with stereotypes…. this is nothing racist. I, for one am black and NOT offended, because a certain percentage of the black community STILL talks like that… I know… i heard….

    Still, I LOL’d when i saw this….

  20. Shady Auhtor on October 3rd, 2008 11:22 am

    You can’t cap someone with a sword. 1/5

    West side suckas!

  21. Pauld'Arbonne on October 3rd, 2008 11:36 am

    Hyrule be representin!

  22. MasqueNoMercy on October 3rd, 2008 1:24 pm

    … are there any minorities in any of the zelda games?

    i dont really know how to count ganon as anything because apparently evil changes your skin color (akuma) and also he sometimes transforms into animals… not sure what that means in terms of ethnicity

  23. CaptainBaconMan on October 3rd, 2008 3:09 pm

    Old picture is friggen old, but still funny.

  24. SonicXV on October 3rd, 2008 4:09 pm

    moar liek, DE-CAP’ Ganon, amirite?

  25. luckydog on October 3rd, 2008 6:18 pm

    I don’t find it funny, but Wow. Finally, a guy to pull off Link. I usually see girls cross-playing as him. And I dunno, I like the green on him

  26. Pigeon Army on October 3rd, 2008 6:27 pm

    Spike Lee’s The Legend of Zelda -- because all other adaptations overlook the contribution of the black Hyrulian to the history of Hyrule, and we’re not on the plantation anymore, old men.

  27. me on October 3rd, 2008 6:38 pm

    lol, the Jesus one gets 3 1/2 stars for being offensive, and the racist one gets 4 1/2?

    lol, it’s a good un anyway.

  28. Int3r on October 3rd, 2008 6:57 pm

    ahahahahahahahahahaha epic.

  29. Draco Advigilat on October 3rd, 2008 7:16 pm

    Somehow I would have expected “Dark Link”.

  30. Bucky on October 3rd, 2008 9:02 pm

    Right. Because there’s NO WAY a black link could be just as heroic and admirable, no, he gotta be skrait up ignant nucka frumma ghetto talkin like he aint got no education fo sho.

    This isn’t funny, it’s racist as shit.

  31. B-man on October 3rd, 2008 11:53 pm

    um newsflash people, to those criticizing this pic, the internet is a scary plasce. this would eventually show up

  32. Szunray on October 4th, 2008 12:48 pm

    This is racist as all hell.
    Bucky hit this dead on.

  33. Saiden-137 on October 4th, 2008 3:02 pm

    The phrase nuked me <8D

  34. Happy on October 4th, 2008 7:17 pm

    When you’re more offended than the person who’s being mocked, you know that political correctness has brainwashed America.

    What if it was a nerd cosplayer in the picture, and the caption was technical gibberish? How offended would you be then?

  35. Szunray on October 4th, 2008 7:30 pm

    Not the same. At all.
    This picture is offensive to me personally.
    As a matter of fact, you don’t know if the person in the photo ever saw this.

  36. Gideon on October 4th, 2008 8:43 pm

    It’s offensive- yet humorous. Such things go hand and hand.

    I also happen to make more racist jokes when I have friends of different races around, and they go and insult me back. Great fun!

  37. RonFalco on October 5th, 2008 8:28 am

    I’m black, and I find this funny.

    Seriously, I can’t say I’m proud of all the stereotypes associated with “my people” but sometimes, you just gotta laugh.

  38. archwright on October 6th, 2008 10:09 am

    I think that this would have been better, had he gone the way of shadow link. Red contacts, black tunic, and so on.

    Also… the caption needs to die. At least we could have had an Obama joke.

  39. MrMe05 on November 9th, 2008 10:18 pm

    Wow. How low can this site go?

  40. IndianCHAN on May 2nd, 2010 8:05 pm

    It woulda been nice if it said "I'ma go shank his ass"

    Get your ghetto terminology right.

  41. combatbeaver on May 28th, 2010 6:40 pm

    Ingo: Horse!
    Nigga stole my horse!
    Nigga stole my horse!
    Nigga stole my horse!
    Nigga stole
    Nigga stole
    stole my horse!
