Changes in Character Designs
2001 – Oracles

The birth of the so-called “cat-eyed Link”. Since then, this Link design has been adopted in the handheld games.
2003 – Four Swords & Four Swords Adventures
For the sake of multiplayer, Links of different colours were introduced. These four Links were also used again in Four Swords Adventures.
2004 – The Minish Cap

2009 – Spirit Tracks
2011 – Skyward Sword
