If The Legend of Zelda had Cops shows what would happen if the game took place in the real world, or at least one with cops. They have issues with Link running around pantsless with a sword, and forget beating the boss. The cops will save they day because they’ve got guns they’re not afraid to use.

zelda art

The Legend of Zelda is a classic and revered game. It persists through time, and new fans continually find the series. Because of that, there is no end to fan creations – including art. This piece by James Zapata is positively a masterpiece. Link, Epona, and Navi are all captured in a quiet moment, and the art would look gorgeous hanging above a fireplace.

steampunk link 1

Could you imagine a steampunk themed Legend of Zelda game? I have a hunch it would be stunning. This custom Link action figure by artist Kodykoala gives a hint as to what the game could look like. Though it is very clearly Link, Kodykoala made a ton of modifications. First of all, Epona is a different kind of ride. The steed was modified from a Hero’s Duty figure (as seen in Wreck-It Ralph).

You’ll notice that Link is toting all sorts of objects too. Some of those came from Kodykoala’s stash and some of them were ordered; he thought it would be fun if Link could carry all of his inventory. There are 55 pieces total onto the 6″ figure and collectors can own it all for $300.

Link's Sword

The Legend of Zelda is full of gorgeous props, and Link’s Master Sword may be the most impressive. Tony Swatton of Man at Arms has received tons of comments from fans asking for him to craft this blade, and he’s finally given in. The latest episode of his educational and entertaining web series shows just what it takes to bring the video game sword to life. It all begins with a sculpted hilt and goes from there – and the finished product is nothing short of beautiful.

Check it out in the video after the break.

What if Link abandoned Legend of Zelda and hopped around different television shows? Hey, listen! He’s got to get tired of that stupid fairy at some point.

Redditor TanBurn has altered the hero’s style to match different television environments so you can easily imagine what Link would look like if he appeared in Adventure Time, Smurfs, Powerpuff Girls, and more. It’s a cool exercise, and I’d love to see some of these mash-ups actually happen. Like Link in The Simpsons? Someone please make that an actual thing.

Check out more versions of Link after the break.

Super Smash Bros. pits your favorite characters against each other, but this version lets you see how it would look in real life. The Screen Team has taken 27 different characters with costumes and sets they made themselves, and set them loose in the backyard. They’ve even added in some new characters like Mega Man and the Wii Fit Trainer.

A whole month of work and over 4000 pictures have given us a fantastic Legend of Zelda stop motion video. It has Link kicking-butt and taking names, but when things get rough he calls for help in the form of Black Rock Shooter. Now the bad guys are really in trouble.
