In response to being told "I love you".

I guess for each different Link and Zelda, there’s an equally confusing romantic situation!

    Link doesn't speak. WHO IS SAYING THIS TO HER?!

  2. Skrist on May 6th, 2012 3:19 pm

    What the artist failed to mention was that after the Skyward Sword Zelda also says that she loves you back, she pushes you off a fucking statue. True love indeed!

  3. Shieldman on May 6th, 2012 3:22 pm

    In Majora's Mask, you have to tell her you love her every time you go back three days.

  4. Caelun_Niveus on May 6th, 2012 3:26 pm

    I've seen this somewhere…
    Here it is
    The part where the game is listed originally states their response, in order:
    (Happy Face) (Crying) (Tsundere)
    (Dumbfounded) (Panic) (No Response)

    Also, now you can change the artist to ちちバンド rather than unknown.

    Legend of Zelda: Wait who are you?
    Link to the Past: Dood we met about last week.
    Ocarina of Time: I'm sorry but I can't date an 11 year old in a 17 year old's body.
    Wind Waker: Tsundere :D
    Twilight Princess: You only see me like three times in the entire game.
    Skyward Sword: FUCKING COCKTEASE

  6. Chimental on May 6th, 2012 3:29 pm


  7. Guppy on May 6th, 2012 3:30 pm

    Where's the "Um… we just met?" option.

  8. Uzumakiclan43 on May 6th, 2012 3:34 pm

    Judging from the cold expression in Twilight Princess Zelda's eyes, it seems Hylian royalty can give less and less fucks about surprise declarations like these as they continue to age.

  10. pokemon_girl on May 6th, 2012 3:51 pm

    So is this Hyrule's version of the dating game?

  11. Dycro on May 6th, 2012 3:56 pm

    "I never knew, you never said anything like that before"

  12. TheFancyPants on May 6th, 2012 3:59 pm

    Link's Awakening: Wait, I'm not even in this game!

  13. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 4:02 pm

    Skyward Link: UMAD?
    The others Links: YES! WE MAD! DAMN YOU!

  14. Comire on May 6th, 2012 4:02 pm

    Spirit Tracks: I'm not really into necrophilia…but thanks.

  15. VaultLegend on May 6th, 2012 4:05 pm

    "The pants. Lose 'em."

  16. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 4:06 pm

    Spirit Tracks Zelda: first get back my body and then we talk!

  17. anon on May 6th, 2012 4:08 pm

    skyward sword zelda and windwaker zelda confirmed for moe tier.

  18. Vabolo on May 6th, 2012 4:24 pm
  19. Vabolo on May 6th, 2012 4:27 pm

    The sexual tension in Skyward Sword could have been cut with the friggin' Master Sword.

    In Twilight Princess? It felt like Link had more chances with the Gorons.


  20. Abum12345 on May 6th, 2012 4:27 pm

    This is all false, In order for it to be true,Link must actually say "i love you" which as a mute, would be impossible for him

  21. nahnah390 on May 6th, 2012 4:33 pm

    There's no love for Minish cap, four sword or the oracle games.
    Then again the oracle zelda is met at basically the last second, while the minish cap one is a childhood friend but is stone most of the game. the four sword one… uh… four guys + one girl… this is either going to end very well or very badly.

  22. EliminatorZigma on May 6th, 2012 4:44 pm
  23. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 4:48 pm

    Tsunderes are evil, man.


  24. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 4:49 pm

    Thank goodness this isn't a visual novel otherwise we might have some jailbait/polygamy/etc. problems with the kids here outside of Japan…

  25. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 4:50 pm

    Sexual tension between Zelda and Link… cut with Fi…

    *runs away*

  26. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 4:51 pm

    Oh boy, now let's do one for every Spongebob character.

    Bubble Buddy: Sorry, but my bubbles don't blow that way.

  27. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 4:52 pm

    That's what YOU hear. What we hear is:


  28. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 5:03 pm

    so, you are still alive! hello! long time we don't talk.

  29. Sceptilianblade on May 6th, 2012 5:09 pm

    I believe we should be the ones saying that to you.

  30. Link Lab on May 6th, 2012 5:12 pm

    Oi, we can speak coherently. It's just that all speech in Hyrule is represented by this weird floating text. We only see what the other person says or any options of what we can say.

    Screaming and grunting, which is a good way to scare enemies by the way, is not speech so we just hear that normally.

  31. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 5:13 pm

    you are right about that, but why you guys don't use msn anymore? since COF downfall i have't talked to you guys.
    and, no a single Kid Icarus Uprising post since the game came out? Halolz, i am dssapoint.

  32. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 5:14 pm

    i think link "i love you" would be a quick kiss attack.

  33. Sceptilianblade on May 6th, 2012 5:30 pm

    MSN? Psssh. Get with the times, bro.
    We use Skype.

  34. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 5:31 pm

    comp is weak…

  35. Deep Thought on May 6th, 2012 5:37 pm

    Link to the Past might be ruined by a little detail:

  36. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 5:42 pm


  37. Cloak on May 6th, 2012 5:55 pm

    Wasn't Gamelon the one time you DIDN'T have to save her ass?

  38. WheelMan1337 on May 6th, 2012 5:57 pm


  39. Cloak on May 6th, 2012 5:57 pm

    He never said anything at all before, then suddenly OMG I LOVE YOU.

  40. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 6:09 pm


  41. Kn0w1d3a on May 6th, 2012 6:13 pm

    Forget Ocarina and Twilight Zelda, Link's got Princess Ruto and Midna.

  42. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on May 6th, 2012 6:14 pm

    Shame on you Alpar. Tsunderes are awesome.

  43. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:26 pm

    It seems that as time goes on in the timeline, Link becomes more blatantly friendzoned by each generation.
    There's an equation to be made out of that…..
    *Spinning Quadratic Formula*

    Also, SS Zelda is qute c:

  44. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:29 pm

    Now, will that require the exponential formula?
    How did that one go?

  45. Lost Hunter on May 6th, 2012 6:30 pm

    But aren't Link and Zelda siblings in Link to the Past?

  46. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:31 pm

    it was something along the lines of- hang on, is it in the form of a quadratic or trigonometric graph?

  47. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:35 pm

    Fuckfuckfuck I can't remember, where did I leave my textbook?
    Ah got it….. lessee…….Cosine graphs, Sine graphs, translating, transforming graphs, AHA! Exponential functions take the form of f(x)=a^x

  48. Sceptilianblade on May 6th, 2012 6:35 pm

    <img src="; img>
    My MOTHER?!

  49. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:36 pm

    Ummmm, you could've just used the graph form of measuring half-life of decaying radioisotopes

  50. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:36 pm

    ….Ah feck

  51. greenxboy on May 6th, 2012 6:37 pm


  52. HughbertEsq on May 6th, 2012 6:38 pm


  53. SRIG on May 6th, 2012 6:39 pm

    Tsunderes aren't that bad, YANDERES is the problem.

  54. Leo E. on May 6th, 2012 6:48 pm

    Welp, between this, the Touhou RP accounts, and the occasional explicit image, we've officially turned into Danbooru.

  55. Leo E. on May 6th, 2012 7:13 pm

    Artist's pen name is Tomatama.

  56. Zyquux on May 6th, 2012 7:30 pm

    It looks like she left him….



  57. Zyquux on May 6th, 2012 7:33 pm

    "Master, I predict a 76% chance that Zelda would be okay with that."

  58. BTSnoogans on May 6th, 2012 7:37 pm

    Spongebob: Patrick, I…

  59. BTSnoogans on May 6th, 2012 7:39 pm

    My BROTHER?!

  60. Oddball on May 6th, 2012 7:40 pm

    i still prefer minda for the twilight princess love interest

  61. BTSnoogans on May 6th, 2012 7:41 pm

    Hughbert. Hughbert everyehere.

  62. BTSnoogans on May 6th, 2012 7:45 pm

    What about Zelda II? You get kissed behind a curtain at the end of that one.

  63. Zortsport on May 6th, 2012 7:51 pm

    But what if the isatop is so volitile it does not have half-life, but quarter life?

  64. GanjalfTheGreen on May 6th, 2012 7:52 pm
  65. Sceptilianblade on May 6th, 2012 8:03 pm

    I dunno, dude. I… sort of have a thing for tsunderes.

    Don't judge me.

  66. LitmusRemnantal on May 6th, 2012 8:13 pm

    Not to mention the large amount of tags for images here.

  67. Sceptilianblade on May 6th, 2012 8:43 pm

    Otherwise known as the Zoe response.

  68. CapnJakeBob on May 6th, 2012 8:50 pm

    And once again, the life cycle of a picture finally reaches its end. Though I'm surprised, I was expecting this here, THEN 9gag…

  69. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 8:54 pm

    Tsunderes are funny but in a serious circumstance they're pure evil D:

  70. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 8:57 pm

    But… but there's no flood of Touhou posts.

    EDIT: Also there's no safe tag, no flood of rule 34, rule 64, and we have way more American than we do Japanese.

    Plus we don't need an account to look up more than two tags…

    …I'll give it a year. Two years actually.

  71. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 9:01 pm
  72. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 9:04 pm

    Then Link ran away because morning breath is terrible after sleeping for that long.

  73. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 9:04 pm

    Like Vabolo said somewhere… the Gorons had a better chance with Link in TP so your opinion's not too much a stretch..

  74. Korotini_Notlad on May 6th, 2012 9:05 pm

    Would that be Zelda or Parasoul?

    If you don't get the reference, I pity you.

    Tough luck baby.
    Also, thanks everyone who +1ed my comments back in this submission.
    Stay awesome my friends.

  77. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on May 6th, 2012 9:25 pm

    Go watch school days. it's completely yandere free.

  78. Vabolo on May 6th, 2012 9:26 pm

    …and then the chances dropped to zero.

  79. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on May 6th, 2012 9:27 pm

    look buddy. ghosts are sexy. don't hate on them. at the very least you aren't having sex with rotting flesh.

  80. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on May 6th, 2012 9:28 pm

    You misspelled Midnas name and now I have to kill you.

  81. Vabolo on May 6th, 2012 9:28 pm

    Midna WAS riding Link half of the time.

  82. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 10:12 pm

    Link was wearing the pants in that relationship.

    And Midna was under his pants most of the time too.

  83. nahnah390 on May 6th, 2012 10:12 pm

    Actually that's a common misconception, when Link's uncle said "Zelda is your …" according to word of god, what the uncle was going to say was destiny.
    the more you know

    Been a while since the last time someone mentioned the forums, time to remind Shawn of how they used to exist.

  86. Skrist on May 6th, 2012 10:40 pm

    It's because of the motion controls isn't it?

  87. Skrist on May 6th, 2012 10:42 pm

  91. Sceptilianblade on May 6th, 2012 10:46 pm

    Sandy: What in tarnation are you goin' on about now?

  93. Captain Rehab on May 6th, 2012 10:57 pm

    *echoey* NO….

  94. Skrist on May 6th, 2012 11:00 pm

    To live in a world without forums, is to not live at all.

    I just got out of my exams today.

    You have no idea how much being able to read that in Japanese validates my existence and shows me that I actually use the stuff I learn in college.

    I would give you a top hat, but I only have a monocle.

  97. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 11:45 pm

    Shawnie's got some… comments to apprehend…

  98. Alpar on May 6th, 2012 11:46 pm

    All of a sudden, Youtube Poop

  101. LinkorZelda on May 6th, 2012 11:49 pm

    i'm not a huge fan of touhou but we should all submit touhou images just so we can have 1 touhou post. Ya know just for the hell of it.

  102. Deep Thought on May 7th, 2012 12:07 am

    I tried to do my best… but I will owe you a +1 bouquet if you decide to collect all of the Cave Johnson messages I've made in the past year and publish them.

    For some reason, I may be possessed by the spirit of the insane inventor.

  105. Alpar on May 7th, 2012 12:24 am

    We've tried this with Shawn in the past and wow does he know how to ignore submissions…

  106. toolate345 on May 7th, 2012 12:31 am

    Appropriate response in all cases: "You can talk!?"

  107. Krugun on May 7th, 2012 12:44 am

    I don't know, Link had a very….fascinated look on his face when zelda floated upwards. Guess he saw something under her dress he liked.

  108. Paulrus-Keaton? on May 7th, 2012 2:06 am

    So, every April and May, Shawn returns to his younger healthier self?
    And no one is batting an eye about this?
    Shawn holds the key to eternal youth and you shits are still bitching about a forum?!

  109. Paulrus-Keaton? on May 7th, 2012 2:10 am

    Again with the Zoe name… Just who is this enigmatic person of which i never heard of before? (or have probably redundantly failed to notice all of the time i was on halolz…)

  114. Combatbeaver on May 7th, 2012 4:18 am

    Hm the twilight princess Zelda response kinda reminded me of rel="nofollow">this one for some reason…

  115. Skrist on May 7th, 2012 7:27 am

    We could do something about it… IF THERE WERE FORUMS! *Starts sobbing*
    Also, look at December and February. It's the same one… meaning, HE HAS A CLONING MACHINE!

  116. Jimmy on May 7th, 2012 7:54 am

    LOL dude, don't we ALL return to our healthier selves when April & May come around? Birds churping, WINTER WRAP-UP, sunny weather & vitamin D? SUMMER AND BIKINIS AROUND THE CORNER!!! Yeah, I'd be looking younger too. Shit, especially with final exams draining your life away.

  117. John Freeman on May 7th, 2012 8:26 am

    …I… don't see the problem here.

  122. Link Lab on May 7th, 2012 9:56 am

    Actually you forget that there's 3 timelines.
    Timeline A: SS>OoT>WW
    Timeline B: SS>OoT>TP
    Timeline C: SS>OoT>LttP>LoZ

    And then when you bring in the data for the rest of the timelines, it gets even more complex and you end up with 4 different equations and all of them look like gibberish to the untrained eye. Seriously, I've tried writing equations for this before. It did not turn out well.

  123. Deep Thought on May 7th, 2012 10:33 am

    You'd think… until you wake up and see plans for a steam-powered gatling gun written on the walls with what is, presumably, animal blood.

    It's happened about 4 times this past month.

  124. Roflcopter419 on May 7th, 2012 11:29 am

    What is the meaning of eternal youth without forums, after all?

  125. Skrist on May 7th, 2012 11:36 am

    This gif seems to get more relevant with each passing day.

  126. Alpar on May 7th, 2012 1:01 pm

    Theoretically, eternal youth would only in the end bring misery.

    Forums are the only way to live.

  127. AlparNewt on May 7th, 2012 1:20 pm

    Hughbert. This is your not-so-clearly-symbolized dream sequence.
    *trippy images combined with tons of math symbols*

  128. SRIG on May 7th, 2012 3:02 pm

    so, that is Shawn? he looks like tha guy from the Mightbusters, are they related?

  129. BlueMario on May 7th, 2012 3:04 pm

    Not it would be

    Tsundere Zelda is best Zelda.

  132. MiniNinja on May 7th, 2012 4:26 pm

    "different Link and Zelda" -- that it why we call it fiction or a video game. In reality, you can get any particular answer from the *same* girl if you tell her "I love you" repeatedly.

  133. Sceptilianblade on May 7th, 2012 4:52 pm

    Flats the Flounder: That's nice.
    Now I'm gonna kick your butt.

    Oh WW Zelda, you so Tsundere.

  141. MetroidJunkie on May 7th, 2012 9:24 pm

    In the first temple, Zelda is beyond the door and bathing to 'purify' herself, but Ghirahim forces you to fight him until she leaves. Link got sword blocked.

  142. Kindly_Absurd on May 7th, 2012 11:12 pm

    …Why does everyone seem to oppose the idea of voice actors? I mean sure CDI, BUT you could have a great voice actor, one who's actually good at it and doesn't sound retarded. VOICE ACTORS!

  143. Chromatin12 on May 8th, 2012 3:06 pm

    So only blonde zelda loves him back???

  145. AuraGuyChris on May 9th, 2012 12:07 pm

    Hey, Wind Waker Zelda was not a tsundere.

    The Spirit Tracks Zelda WAS one.

  146. Pupsrus13 on May 13th, 2012 12:41 am

    Relevant picture. Anyone else agree? *looking at +33* seems like it.
