Marin, Romani, and Cremia are all better characters than Malon in my opinion, though really Romani and Cremia are just rip-offs of Malon, but still better in my eyes.

Her simplicity is what makes her lovable, and overall, many characters in that N64 game carried a titch flat. Look at Rauru! Malon even gave up trying to get help for the ranch because why?


Ask 90% of the people to tell you the basic storyline to OoT and I can almost grant you that most of them won't mention Malon, but they would mention Rauru. Whether they just said something along the lines of Six Sages or something, it would still be a reference to Rauru. His part in the game is much more larger in scale than Malon's simplictic role.

*sobs* you people are utterly destroying my fave Zelda character ever. Romani and Cremia were poor excuses for that farmgirl. There may have been two of 'em, but you know they were only created to make up for Malon not being in MM in the first place!

She doesn't just give Link a horse, she gives him his best friend...and a good assault vehicle to fire from without getting obliterated himself. She had faith in Link, while Zelda just played weakling to get his affection (come ON, the girl's all tough as Sheik, but the moment she's dressed up as a princess again she hasta go all "save me, no one else can protect me from the evil Ganon!"). AND she gives Link that cow to put in his treehouse.

Besides, with her loser dad around, you know that girl's running the farm on her own, so she's industrious! That, and once you've helped her out once, she just silently waits around hoping for Link to say more, without expecting anything else. Rudo wants him to marry her, Zelda won't be satisfied unless he destroys Ganon- while Malon would love for Link to whisk her off on Epona, but isn't gonna go all weak and start crying if he doesn't get around to it.

Malon represents every girl who works her butt off trying to get a little attention without acting like a bitch about it, and gets absolutely nowhere with it. That was a real girl. And I love her song. >.> I'd say that the fact that they always haveta have another character named Malon (however pathetic they might be) in itself says plenty about how much people remembered and loved that girl. ;)

Besides...some people do insanely good cosplay. o.o
http://www.iologs.co...y/malon_max.jpg



Back to reality...anyone here look at the fact that these games come from Japan? Cause Japanese HAS no L- the closest is an R sound.

So in effect...if the names Malon and Marin are as close of pronunciations in our games as they would be in the original Japanese, the names would sound something like "Maron" and "Marin", riiiight? Dun sound just a little like they may have been meant to share THE SAME NAME? XD Ya can talk about the multiple gals named 'Malon' in the games, but might 'Marin' be part of that same group? (unless you wanna get really technical about the difference in sounds between Mah-reen and Mah-lohn)

Oh Look it's Adella! She cosplay's also like Marin!
And Lol Malon doesn't gives Link the horse HE WINS IT!! HE WINS IT FROM INGO!!!!
And I truelly believe that Malon was even more of a damsel in distress then Princess Zelda, Malon couldn't even handle Ingo on her own! Now as you can see the official art of Zelda. Sheik even helps Link in battles!
So stop whining about Zelda being all the DiD! >_> Malon was even weaker.

Zelda vs King of evil Ganondorf
Malon vs -_-'' Ingo.. a farmer who kicked the lazy owner out of the ranch. >_>
Plus Zelda fights for Hyrule and her people that means INCLUDING MALON!!!
Plus in Ssbm Zelda p0wned almost everybody's ass, She rocks with her magic!
:whistle: can't say that about that about Malon!
hahahaha So please don't compare Malon and Zelda next to each other.
Because Zelda has a lot of more things to do then just being a farmer!

No offense to the Malon lovers, but monique is right. As far as character development goes Zelda outclasses Malon in every game to date.

Well, there shouldn't even be a comparison there. Zelda is one of THE most key characters of the Zeldaverse, and Malon isn't. Of course Zelda's got more to her. Don't whine about it.

Chikky, you went a little over the top saying Malon's nobler than Zelda, but as for the rest of it...YAY!!!!!

And excuse me for saying that about Rauru. I was trying to make a point. Rauru is a key character, but only because he's a Sage. That is an example of a place Nintendo could've gone all out on on character development and did diddly, unless you think he's also Kaepora, likesome people do. That's waht I mean. He and Malon were in 64 bits and not the biggest concern of the game world, but still important enough to merit for those RARE individuals who play a story in a game, not just pixels, thank you!

Meh. There wasn't really any characetr development period in LoZ, LttP, the Oracles, of FSA ;)

OoT Malon has more depth than those Zeldas.

OoT Zelda.. I haven't really given it much though, but she certainly isn't THAT much better than Malon.

Here's what I'm saying...I'm not gonna compare OoT Malon to every Zelda character ever, but the princess in that story...seriously, she didn't really get any more screen time than the farmgirl, did she? The only times I recall Zelda doing anything cool/tough on her own were when she was crossdressing, as if having her chest taped down gave her some sort of urgency to get things done on her own so she could get outta there and into something more comfortable. XP

I just..always saw Zelda as the prize, the girl who had very little going for her except that she was the pretty, 1/3 triforce cutey that Link had to strive to protect. Obviously she didn't lead a sheltered life (what with the being raised by the Hyrulian equivelant of an Amazon warrior to keep a certain pervy male gerudo away). Malon wanted to be that prize, and offered Link every bit of assistance she could (Zelda did plenty too, but when you're the richest chick in the kingdom and have a few sages for friends, that dun mean much).

And for how lazy the guys around Lon Lon Ranch were, it was no wonder Malon wanted to get away- realistically, she had to deal with every spare minute of her life being taken up by milking cows, feeding cuccos, taming horses...she just happened to...er...go out of her way to hang out by the horse corral whenever Link was around. >.>;

Bah, I just root for the underdog. Anyway, the Zelda vs. Malon is a waaaaaaaaay different matter from the Marin vs. Malon thing. Zelda and Malon are like apples and oranges. XP

And excuse me for saying that about Rauru. I was trying to make a point. Rauru is a key character, but only because he's a Sage. That is an example of a place Nintendo could've gone all out on on character development and did diddly, unless you think he's also Kaepora, likesome people do.

Kaepora and Rauru are totally different people, but that is a different matter entirely. Rauru still explained what happened those seven years, he tells you about the Master Sword, and he tells you to awaken the five other sages. He gives Link his mission to go out and rescue these sages. Sure Shiek gave their location, but Rauru is the one who ordered the mission. He also was the one at the end of the game who told the others sages to send the evil incarnation of darkness into the void of the evil realm. Rauru is a main character in my eyes, just as Saria, Darunia, Ruto, Impa, Nabooru, and Zelda are main characters. They help progress the story, Malon doesn't. She is a nice farm girl and she has a bit of spunk to her as a kid, and we feel sorry for her as an adult, but she isn't as important as the Seven Sages which is a big part of the game's story.

Meh. There wasn't really any characetr development period in LoZ, LttP, the Oracles, of FSA


Well Malon wasn't in LoZ or LttP so I am not going to comment on that. Oracles Zelda and Malon were both poor, but Malon's was worse than Zelda's.

Malon was only interested in the Cuccodex, gives you a Lon Lon Egg, and that's pretty much it.

Zelda had a bit more to her than that, but she only played damsel in distress with Vire, the Great Moblin, and Twinrova. But her role in the Room of Rites was a pivotal part in the linked game of the Oracle Series. Malon didn't have that.

Both weren't good, but Zelda still has more character to her than Malon does.

In FSA Malon only shows up at The Field. She wondered off and got lost. Link saves her and she is reunited with her father Talon, and they give you access to ride a horse. Once again little depth in character design.

FSA Zelda asked her childhood friend Link to help her check on the seal on Vaati. She gets captured by Shadow Link, but she also stops him and him duplicates by destroying the Dark Mirror. She is captured by Ganon, but when she gets freed she also is the one who summons a ball of light to imprison Ganon in the Four Sword.

Zelda once again has more character than Malon. Even the Shrine Maidens have more character than Malon does.

OoT Malon has more depth than those Zeldas.

I will agree with Malon from Ocarina of Time having more depth than Zelda from Oracles and Four Swords Adventures, but comparing the Zelda from them games to the Malon of them games, and Zelda still has more depth.

OoT Zelda.. I haven't really given it much though, but she certainly isn't THAT much better than Malon.


Malon asks you to wake up her dad. She is a bit spunky as a child and she teaches you Epona's Song. She gives Link a cow in his treehouse and that's it. That is all she does as a child.

Zelda is regal as a child, as one should be with her royal heritage. She tells Link of the dreadful prophetic dreams she had. She sends Link on his mission, and he does so willingly. When she runs out of the castle gates and Ganondorf is chasing them, Link is there and refuses to answer where Impa and Zelda went, despite Ganondorf's demanding actions. There was a moment (not romantically, just a memorable moment) right there between Link and Zelda which we do not get with Malon when they were in the childhood era.

Now let's go look at the adult era. Malon is cleaning the stables and Ingo is so mean. Link helps her out by challenging Ingo with Malon's horse Epona. Link wins, but he is never able to leave the ranch, until Link just jumps over the ranch walls anyway, and Ingo changes his ways and Malon is happy.

Zelda is there the whole time as Shiek throughout the adult time era helping Link on his mission. When it is time for Link to know what is going on she reveals herself as Zelda and shows him that she has the Triforce of Wisdom (a main part in the story) and that Link has the Triforce of Courage. She might get captured, but Link shows that he wants her out of there, for he has tried to protect her all this time. Zelda also helps you escape Ganon's Tower, and she holds him in place during the final battle. Ruto also knows that Link was searching for Zelda, which shows that Link cared deeply for her (I am not meaning this in a romantic way, but it was more affection out of him than we seen out of his affection for Malon). Zelda realizes what she done is wrong, and you see a heartfelt moment at the end of the game.

OoT Zelda has more depth than OoT Malon.

I shouldn't even have to explain the Minish Cap, but if we went into that, Zelda still had more depth than Malon.


The thing is, is that the story of the Legend of Zelda usually revolves around Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf, so Zelda and Ganondorf are going to have more character than most other characters. Link's character is usually just however the player feels about him. Malon is a nice character, but she is not as defined as Zelda is, and the story has never been about Link trying to get his freaky deeky happening on the DL with Zelda or Malon if you guys catch my drift on that one.

Dude. You'd better give it some thought before the Zelda lovers come after you with a pointy stick...She's a very cool character, but my fingers are too lazy to gut her personality into three pages right now. Maybe when it's more appropriate.

Kaepora and Rauru are totally different people, but that is a different matter entirely. Rauru still explained what happened those seven years, he tells you about the Master Sword, and he tells you to awaken the five other sages. He gives Link his mission to go out and rescue these sages. Sure Shiek gave their location, but Rauru is the one who ordered the mission. He also was the one at the end of the game who told the others sages to send the evil incarnation of darkness into the void of the evil realm.


Uh....your point? His character was FLAT! It's very hard, no matter how much dialogue he speaks, which has nit bearing on anything, to get any emotion or connection out of him, unless you connect him to Kaepora, completely reopening his character, but, you're not interested in that, and my fingers are too lazy to gut his personality into three pages right now. Maybe when it's more appropriate.

Malon's deeeper. Get over it, you dialogue reader.

And, if you want to go by events, no matter how "important" these dumb events of Zelda's are, Malon got equal screen time, and, not counting cutscenes, and counting MM, more in Link's life as well. Malon is a fruggin farmgirl. You need the horse, and her pappy to move his butt just as much as Zelda's letter or the Light Arrows, storywise, it's nigh impossible to beat the game w/o either one. So there.

But I'm not going to argue that Malon's deeper. She can't be. She isn't given the story importance or the "emotion" moot point. Still, Darkseid, your reasoning centers are a little twisted. You're an excellent logician in Storyline forums, but you seem a little lost on character entirely.

What if it HAD been Malon's story? You're supposed to feel sorry for the pinky princess that needs saving, Zelda with her magical powahs and all that...but if you switched, say...OoT Malon and Zelda's personalities? My GOD, would Zelda sound exciting. Sheik's exciting until you put on the dress, but as it is, for all the crap that happens in her life...Zelda's still as boring as a rock. And not a gossip stone, either. XP

Ya'll Zelda lovers may have your pointy sticks, but Chik's got her molten spork. Cause those who appreciate Malon haveta be creative. ;)

But Zelda's not a bad character! :(

She's a dipstick at first, but she makes up for it, and she knows how to kick butt. That's what makes her likable.

You probly won't agree with me, but she's more free-spirited than Malon in a way, because, while Malon dreams, Zelda carries out her ambitions, (even if they're stupid as heck,)

Carries out her ambitions? The only reason she travels so much is cause the girl's running away from everything. ;) And again...she only kicks butt in OoT when she's Sheik.

And Malon gets to make fun of Link. She's sassy.

Less spirit? HA! Malon sacrifices her happiness to protect her horses, while Zelda's willing to run and hide while all of her people are suffering and being killed off!

You know Lon Lon Ranch had to have something special about it to even keep out the evil all around- and Malon was doing a darned good job of protecting it and her horses.

...unless you go with the other theory that Ganondorf wasn't going to kill off Malon and destroy the ranch until she paid back her debts from losing too many times to him at poker. ^^;

What could she have done? Anyway, she probably didn't want to go, but as her protector Impa had to hide her.

The only reason Lon Lon Ranch was spared was because Ganondorf needed horses, and thankfully Ingo had the brains to agree. The place would have fallen apart a long time ago were it not for Ingo.

Maybe when it's more appropriate.  

Malon's deeeper. Get over it, you dialogue reader.

Okay I will agree with you on the fact that Rauru's character has no emotion, but he is the wise old man in the story, and I am a dialogue reader, I love hearing stuff about the Master Sword and things like that.

And, if you want to go by events, no matter how "important" these dumb events of Zelda's are, Malon got equal screen time, and, not counting cutscenes, and counting MM, more in Link's life as well. Malon is a fruggin farmgirl. You need the horse, and her pappy to move his butt just as much as Zelda's letter or the Light Arrows, storywise, it's nigh impossible to beat the game w/o either one. So there.


Well I can go through the entire game of Ocarina of Time and not even do any of Malon's events with the exception of one. I have to wake Talon up from Hyrule Castle, but other than that, I do not need Epona's Song, I do not need Epona, I don't really need anything from Malon to help me progress with the game. The only thing it really helps on is getting items you haven't got, better speed time in Hyrule Field, and getting the full concept of the game. I can't do the same with Zelda, I have to do all of her events.

The same goes for Cremia and Romani. As much as depth and character interaction that they put in them two, they are still things that I don't have to do in order to complete the game.

But I'm not going to argue that Malon's deeper. She can't be. She isn't given the story importance or the "emotion" moot point.

Really none of them do in Zelda games, I mean it's not a Final Fantasy series or anything. Ganondorf from the Wind Waker probably has more depth than any character in the entire Zelda series.

You'd better give it some thought before the Zelda lovers come after you with a pointy stick...She's a very cool character, but my fingers are too lazy to gut her personality into three pages right now. Maybe when it's more appropriate.


Why does everyone think that Zelda lovers come with pointy sticks? I mean personally I like Zelda better than Malon, but it really isn't that big of deal, it is just my personal perference.

Also you said that you could gut Zelda's personality into three pages, but what makes her character any less special than Malon's.

That wasn't my point. Husse said it was nigh impossible to complete the game without doing events from both Zelda and Malon, but that's not true. You have to do the events of Zelda, you only have to do one of Malon's. My point was is that it is not impossible to beat the game without doing the parts in Lon Lon Ranch.

Zelda did not have to power to defeat Ganon, if she would have it would have been useless to wait 7 years for the hero of time now would it? And Link wouldn't be our favorite hero. Zelda has wisdom, wisdom isn't the strongest Triforce, Power and Courage are. But Wisdom is important for the balance of Courage and Power. Because one who has power or courage can not claim Power or Courage before he has Wisdom. That's why Ganondorf waited for Zelda to come and didn't kill Link because that would been useless!
As for Zelda being all pinky, well she's a princess and a girl!!! She likes to show her self off like a girl. >_> I mean I'm a girl too and I wear pink to because well I'm a female and I'm proud to be one! But the thing for Zelda is, she might look cute and all but she can kick ass! And without Zelda, Link would have been dead already!

Chikara Nadir you are so wrong, let me explain again Zelda's part in the legend and Link's part.
If Zelda was a fighter and showed herself off for Ganondorf before Link came, well Zelda would be dying and Ganondorf would have obtained the Triforce of wisdom thus he can use more power of the triforce of power without loosing his mind.
Then Ganondorf would search for the one who holds courage, if he knew it was Link. He would have killed him too! Because if Link comes out well the poor guy is still a rooky in his fighting skill.
The end of the legend of Zelda Ocarina of time, bad ending more people would suffer.

Now what Nintendo created was that Zelda was hiding herself off as Sheik, probably Sheik fought against monsters too, because like Sheik say's after beating up the water temple "we must protect this land of hyrule!" And the official art. So I'm pretty sure Sheik fought during the time Link was sleeping.
Then the part that Sheik was learning Link her wisdom and learning him the songs. If Sheik didn't, Link could not save Impa and defeat the shadow temple. Also Zelda is not hiding away because when the well monster came, Sheik even said "Back off Link!" And wanted to fight the monster herself! Now >_> Zelda isn't that "Oh I'm running away because I'm a coward!"
Miyamoto actually made Zelda to become a strong woman! And I think she is. In the first LOZ game she actually split the Triforce into 8 pieces, then in AOL she fights against her brothers about the secrets from the triforce.
In alttp she fights against Agnahim and was one of the first who discovered that Agnahim was pure evil.
In Ocarina of time, well she fights of Ganondorf and even makes a plan to save Hyrule! And don't blaim it on her all alone Link actually agreed with her! So it was his fault too.
Ooa/Oos Zelda runs out of the castle to search for Link and trying to help him.

And if Zelda wasn't there in Ocarina of time >_> who would open up the cages for Link?
The only poor thing I find is that Zelda and Link both have non background story's.
You don't know a lot about them, the only thing I know is that Tetra had a brother in Windwaker but he died. And Tetra had to run the ship being the new leader!

I hope Zelda and Link would both be cooler in the new game! I hope you can play both of them. Zelda for her magic and maybe ninja skills and Link for the sword fighting. Now that would really make a damn good team! :lol:


Don't worry, Eiji Aunoma already stated Zelda becoming playable. So she won't be running away anymore!
Ganondorf actually didn't care about Malon, he only cared about the horses that was the important stuff for Ganny!


Malon never fought for the ranch, because if she did! Ingo was probably that wuzzy again. I mean come on!!! Link doesn't even have to kick Ingo's ass and Ingo's so affraid of Ganondorf. Now compore Malon who was lower then Ingo with that!!

Really none of them do in Zelda games, I mean it's not a Final Fantasy series or anything. Ganondorf from the Wind Waker probably has more depth than any character in the entire Zelda series.

Psh. Tat's just cause you're a dialogue reader.

Also you said that you could gut Zelda's personality into three pages, but what makes her character any less special than Malon's.


I was complimenting her, not putting her down. The fact that you're willing to type three pages about a video game character's soul is a compliment.

but malon would have faught for the ranch, even though she would have probably lost.

She would have, but she was afraid Ingo would beat the horses, so she didn't. That's not a good facet of persona, but humility is nice in a world of "I am woman, hear me roar-heads." I don't think Catterick is saying Ingo is a good person, I think he's saying that his power-greed was used for good in the end.

so what if you don't have to do it? does that make zelda any better than malon, just because she's more important to saving hyrule?


Meh, save it. I think he's a dialogue-reader, AND a happy, button-masher. Some folks prefer gameplay to story.

Those are the SMART people. Here I am, bickering about Malon whe I could be chopping chickens in pixel-land...

Zelda has wisdom, wisdom isn't the strongest Triforce, Power and Courage are.

Where did you hear THAT? Never mind. Manga. Pssssh! It ain't true. Zelda uses her Triforce visually more thna Link anyway. Psh.

Then Ganondorf would search for the one who holds courage, if he knew it was Link. He would have killed him too!


He can't kill them, but you're close. He would've captured them, THEN killed them. They have to bel alive for him to take their Triforces. Remember Ganon's quote in WW? And, if he did kill them, the Triforce would ZIP to another owner fore he could grab it. Sorry, just me, I'm a nitpick.

probably Sheik fought against monsters too, because like Sheik say's after beating up the water temple "we must protect this land of hyrule!" And the official art.

Again, why'd you have to say that? I think it's obvious to everyone except Zelda-haters that Sheik was a busy transvestite, (j/k) why do you have to bring in proof that makes no sense? A quote doesn't mean that drastically, stop making us laugh at you. No wonder you have all these weird theories, a syllable to you is like a revelation or somehting...

You don't know a lot about them, the only thing I know is that Tetra had a brother in Windwaker but he died.


I like mystique of background. Otherwise, you'd end up with a cheesy FF "Luke I am your father" backstory, and Zelda isn't about backstory anyway, but WHERE did you get that? She had a MOTHER, not a BROTHER....and your grammar is horrid.

Don't worry, Eiji Aunoma already stated Zelda becoming playable. So she won't be running away anymore!


I don't know whether to believe you, but COOL!

And I refuse to comment on your last paragraph. It makes no sense, and the sentence structure is so messed up it hurts my brain.

No Ganondorf in the Wind Waker expressed more emotion than just about any character in Zelda to boot. Tetra also was very vibrant as a character, and so are many from Majora's Mask. Malon couldn't compare to none of them in overall character.

I

Oh...the gut thing threw me off.

Meh, save it. I think he's a dialogue-reader, AND a happy, button-masher. Some folks prefer gameplay to story.


I happen to pay very much attention to the story. Take Darunia for example: I know by playing the game he is a stern leader, he is easily thrown into temperment, he can also be overjoyed with music that has a playful nature to it, he is a fierce warrior, he is wild in nature, and just an all out badass.

I do take their character into account, and look on the outside as well and the Six Sages were people that easily grew on me. Darunia has just as much character as Malon does.

Also I think that Rauru's character is supposed to be a bit flat, because he is like your Gandalf or Merlin of the Legend of Zelda series. When I hear him talk I feel like I am hearing a wise old man tell me of all these important events that are happening.

Break it down to me and tell me what is so special about Malon. She's not a bad character, but I have many others who were more memorable to ME than she was.

If Zelda was a fighter and showed herself off for Ganondorf before Link came, well Zelda would be dying and Ganondorf would have obtained the Triforce of wisdom thus he can use more power of the triforce of power without loosing his mind.

Uh...yo. Ganondorf DID still capture Zelda, and COULD have quite easily killed her before Link came- she was just being used as bait, much like a worm on a fish hook. The girl wasn't exactly doing much more than a worm at the time, either.

i believe chik summed it up quite nicely:

Besides, with her loser dad around, you know that girl's running the farm on her own, so she's industrious! That, and once you've helped her out once, she just silently waits around hoping for Link to say more, without expecting anything else. Rudo wants him to marry her, Zelda won't be satisfied unless he destroys Ganon- while Malon would love for Link to whisk her off on Epona, but isn't gonna go all weak and start crying if he doesn't get around to it.

Malon represents every girl who works her butt off trying to get a little attention without acting like a bitch about it, and gets absolutely nowhere with it. That was a real girl. And I love her song. >.> I'd say that the fact that they always haveta have another character named Malon (however pathetic they might be) in itself says plenty about how much people remembered and loved that girl.

Sorry but there wasn't anything in that statement that couldn't be said about others, as they have just as much character as she did.
