General Zelda by RoochArffer General Zelda by RoochArffer
For :iconlegendofzeldanerds:'s redesign zelda things contest!
I've loved LoZ games for a long time but I've also always been irritated with the damsel-in-distress aspect of zelda. That's why I wanted to redesign Zelda as some sort of warrior (that didn't involve pretending to be a man =P). I think this might be General Zelda or something =] I tried to keep her color scheme pretty similar and what not.
Anyways, tell me what you think =]

General Zelda? She's supposed to be wise, so why not? Seriously, I hope Nintendo makes Zelda a stronger character in the upcoming Zelda games. Her role was more active in Skyward Sword, but she still managed to get captured in that game.

yeah, she'd probably make a good strategist
I'm hoping for that too! in skyward sword i was pleased to see her a step ahead of link for a good chunk of the game but eventually she had to be imprisoned =P

ALL HAIL! Nice armour. I think it's good that some princesses can protect themselves unlike SOME pink-dress-wearing-oh-please-kidnap-me-every-chance-you-get princesses.

Love your redesign; I have to agree with your assessment of Zelda's character.

Why doesn't Hyrule have an army? They have guards but nothing even remotely capable of defending the borders. Then again, the population of Hylia barely exceeds the number of people needed to tend an orchard.
She kind of gets to do stuff in Orcarina of Time (though you are right about the Sheik business) and Twilight Princess; she gets to shoot arrows in the latter.

i try to pretend that most people work in their homes. which are located somewhere that i can't see.
still, i feel like the gerudo had an army in at least one game so hyrule should probably get it's act together...
yeah, she's not so bad as some other female characters in other games but whenever she turns into a princess she pretty much gets sidelined. in wind waker and ocarina it was especially evident. that being said, she does have some kick-ass abilities in both games and helps with the final boss in wind waker (i can't remember much about the final boss in twilight princess...) it's just a shame she always ends up having to be saved in one way or another in the first place =\

That is true. In Twilight Princess she uses her Triforce to create arrows and shoot Ganon off his mount. You steer and she shoots. (also creates awesome dodging pictures with her Final Smash in Brawl)

sounds similar to wind waker i think... it's either arrows or something to do with a mirror...

Books have taught me that reflective surfaces are only good for thwarting snakes and turning into flowers.

RoochArffer Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nonsense, video games have taught me that shooting light into a reflective surface bounces it around into puzzles and ultimately destroys something. i think the final boss was somewhat like this? shooting light arrows at a mirror with zelda bouncing them into ganon... i could be making that up

You could be making it up but only Wikipedia truly knows the answer.
Light also always bounces on exact angles and ignores refraction.

ok i googled and i had it backwards. link has the mirror and zelda has the light arrows
shhh refraction what are you talking about, such nonsense
