I sat at my computer console, my hands sweaty, my body almost shaking with repressed excitement. I had been hours leading to this moment. Days. Weeks. Months, even. I had battled through every palace, fought through each cave, visited every town in the kingdom and learnt every spell. Every stone was back in its allotted statue.
I had reached the great palace weeks ago. I had come to know its passages by heart, and was sick of the long journey there from North castle. Moas... One of the most annoying enemies ever, and how I hated them! And inside the palace - the insanely hard bird knights, the ropes, the bots... And the Thunderbird itself. I had fought it more times than I liked to remember. Now, though, though my energy and magic were at their lowest ebb, I had defeated it. A lucky stroke, some might say. But it lay dead behind me.
And now, the room was dark... But I made out an old man, and, behind him the triforce! Finally, I had won! But wait... What's that... Oh rats.
I can't beat Dark Link! I can't even land a hit on him! Please help me!

get him between the wall and you, so that he doesn't have room to jump over the sword.

Along with what Reflectionist suggested, I recall that I did nothing more than remain stationary and swipe repeatedly, healing myself at appropriate moments.

If I wanted to, however, I would've asked if you'd gotten the Hookshot and the Bow out of the secret door in level five. lol

Just go to the left of the screen, crouch, and attack repeatedly. Fin.

Seriously. The only hard part about the Grand Palace are those bird knights.

I suppose I didn't need help after all - beat him just before I checked this. Thanks anyway, though!

He's called Shadow Link, or Link's Shadow. Dark Link was that (no offense, Dark Link fans) joke of a mini-boss in the Water Temple in OoT. <_<

I know what you mean. Some rooms in that palace were surprisingly easy. But I suppose the hard part is not getting lost! Not to mention actually getting into the palace.

Congratulations on beating the hardest Zelda game, Showsni :D

Getting into the palace is a headache in a half. Navigating it with no map is two headaches and a quarter. Thunderbird is is a headach and three quarters....

Dark Link is a breath of fresh air. I've never had a hard time with him. Then again, I've beaten TAoL so many times, I can just about navigate the final dungeon by heart.

Just hit him with Biggoron's sword a couple of times, it works so damn well making it one of the easiest fights ever.

*zooms out to me, with a projector of Zythe posting this* And this kids, is why you always READ the post before replying. You wouldn't want to be laughed at, now would you? No. I didn't think so.

Laughing out loud at the less-forum-inclined isn't very nice, Masa. It's better to do so silently, so they don't know if you are or not. ;)
