I suspect Link may have a chance against either the animated or MCU one but no chance against the comics one, you can bet the actual comic version is going to be broken as hell or full of hyperbole or vagueness that can be interpreted as broken anyway.

Other than comics, most feats for MCU seem to be physical, this is where Links hax may shine. Also a composite link, especially if wearing Golden gauntlets is pretty strong, and not too shabby in speed too. I dont suppose outside of the comics version, the other versions have had to no sell all the sorts of magic (and polymorphs) that Link has in composite.

Honestly, MCU Thor vs Link would've been fine. Animated and comic aren't.

Animated Thor has resistance to some magic and his Asgardian biology made him immune to most things such as space and gamma radiation, but I don't remember all of them. Earth's Mightiest Heroes was pretty faithful to the comics with some creative changes.

Can the Master Sword clash or hold its own against Thor's hammer? same goes for the Hylian Shield.

Feats from diferent threads makes Link's reactions & reflexes to be Hypersonic+ ( High Hypersonic ) due trying dodging lighting in BOTW ( You can react and jump out of the way in time but not fast enough as the lighting will still hit you ), then theres the famous beam feats that in the guides states that are real lasers and Link could react and dodge them ( OOT/MM & TW ) & in BOTW Link can do the same to guardian' s lasers, that will not be lightspeed or anything, but at best will make his reactions and reflexes to be Revalistic ( If not, then In very mistaken ), then Link could boost his speed with his other items/power ups like for example the Pegasus Boots.

Can the Mágic Armor help to a degree? it took blows from Ganon.

I think Link with the Golden Gauntlets could even the ods with Thor's strenght, but thats just me.

Im not siding with anyone here, both are great and powerfull characters in there own right ( Link ).

The sword and shield will questionably survive because they're supposedly indestructible. I'm of the mind even WoG claims of indestructible should only apply to what we observe in said verse as that's all we know for sure was considered but others digress.

Magic armor took hits from Ganon, yes. Ganon's best strength feats tend to involve shattering stone pillars or even scaling to Link's own pillar-lifting feat depending on how you look at it.
MCU Thor is quite above both of those things, comic and animated Thor only increases the gap farther.

For example

AFAIK, for context, that's a Celestial; the things that destroy planets. Thor might be able to kill Link just by hitting something near him.

Or, if you purely want to compare lifting like what the GG give-
https://static.comicvine.com/uploads/or ... -Rbicy.jpg


Link's enhancing equipment also has the iffy area of wondering whether they'll even work on him as we don't know if they increase his speed to a set level (and as such would do nothing for composite) or if they increase his speed by x amount or if they multiply his speed by x amount. The items were never intended to work together like that so that area is highly speculative. Also recall that if he uses hat-wear then logically he loses out to other options his headgear can give him (like the lightning helmet)- kinda a bad idea since Thor can literally fill an area with lightning.

Dodging one bolt is all well and good, you'll have a bit more of an issue dodging it when the entire area is full of them.
http://i.imgur.com/Utp5A4E.jpg (Dunno what the black stuff around him is in this scan, I assume he's being attacked)
Link's gonna want his anti-lightning equipment. Whether it's up to stopping Thor's lightning I somewhat doubt though.

You have a point, can experience makes any diference?

In strenght, are you talking about the island feat Thor did in the MCU? Cuz that attack was a charging one, Link's Golden Gauntlet should be equal or not stronger than Thor in the MCU.

In honestly, looks like Comic Thor was a bit to much, same goes to AEMH Thor.

If Link does lose, is it with ease dificulty or Mid dificulty?

PS. Who won in the Erza vs Kenpachi match?

Can Link's helmet really even protect him from lightning that can fuse a moon together (616)? Or lightning that can destroy portions of a city (EMH)?

So yeah...even if Link can survive the biggest baddest lightnings Thor can muster...I don't know if there's much he can do about fire rain or wind capable of crossing space from Asgard to damage buildings and mountains on Earth...if nothing else it would fling him around like a ragdoll. Or a tornado carrying him to space. Or whatever the fuck a time storm might do.

Link doesn't have more experience then Thor so no.
Thor's hundreds of years old and has fought for basically his entire life past being a child IIRC.
Link is noted in several stories to not fight at all as a child to the point of not even having a weapon and seldom do we have any evidence of him continuing to fight after the game ends.

Possible for the GG, though it doesn't apply to striking strength. Link scaling to the one fellow who busts through a stone wall would be better. Though whether Link is actually stronger would be up for debate as I believe the guy can catch your sword and toss it away.
That said, Thor trades blows evenly with, and even sometimes seems stronger than- Hulk. The guy who does this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amVfFRNmDE4
Stopping huge moving objects is a lot more impressive than people give credit for. Hulk takes that without damage- yet when he and Thor are fighting in Ragnorak- Thor sends him flying repeatedly and does actual damage with his strikes. I remember seeing something else in Ragnorak that seemed good for striking but cannot remember what it is. The movie hasn't been out long enough for clips to be prevalent, worse luck.

Comic Thor wins with ludicrous ease. The fact that he can obliterate Link as a side-effect of fighting a more severe foe should really dictate how much of a mismatch that is.
Animated Thor I know little of so I can't comment. I know they definitely had some big feats like Hulk holding up New York or something- and Thor and Hulk's strength rivalry exists in that cartoon as well.
MCU Thor is physically much closer to Link's level. Though he's still packing potent benefits that would make the battle hard: such as the lightning that strikes regardless of what Thor himself is doing or the seeming regen that removes stab wounds quite quickly. He never got the eye back but all the other stabbing Hera did to him seems fair game.

Hulk holding New York is Avengers Assemble, in Earth's Mightiest heroes Thor slowed the descent of a falling New York. Different continuities.
