Durability feats for some of the various Links.

Link (Twilight Princess)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJcSGtOUPTE
(4:50-5:00)
Link survives being knocked off of a high ledge by Stallord.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dofDS7NA5jk
(4:40-5:20)
Link survives a water landing after being launched from a cannon to a city so high that it can’t even be seen from the ground. He also get’s back down by using a cannon as well.
-
Link (Skyward Sword)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijkXbAEVjyk
(1:40-2:10)
Link survives being crushed by a giant scorpion’s claws a few times.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhfXtOzAhFA
Link takes a very hard landing from Skyloft to Hyrule.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yy5dH-5nQA
Link completely tanks being shot out of a cannon and falling into a rotating floor.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmQz_wF5rsI
Link shows complete resistance to time manipulation. Throughout this video, Link activates Timeshift Stones, which warp anything around them to a past or future state. Everything from enemies, terrain, the Ancient Robots, and even a Thunder Dragon deity are effected by the changes in time, but Link isn't.
-
Link (Ocarina of Time/Majora’s Mask)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLXch32truM
(1:30-1:50)
Link survives a blast of Ganondorf’s dark magic.

Link survives being knocked aside by a giant robotic bull without a scratch.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NnbCZsM6XI
(7:30-8:00)
Link is durable enough to use the Blast Mask repeatedly. Unlike the game mechanics from a regular in-game bomb explosion, the Blast Mask's actual function is to blow Link up like that.
-
Link (Wind Waker/Phantom Hourglass)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zw90Vlheyug
(8:45-9:50)
Link survives being launched into the side of a fortress and then falling several feet into water.

Triforce and Golden Goddesses
Sources A Link to the Past and Hyrule Historia say that the Triforce(Fully formed one) is omnipotent
/
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 7fAQ#t=31s
/
http://www.glitterberri.com/hyrule-historia/page-70/
/
The reason why the Triforce is only omnipotent when fully formed is because the Omnipotent Golden Goddesses are granting the wishes.
(Sources: Skyward Sword and Wind Waker)
/
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... jmc#t=172s
/
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... NYM#t=461s
/
Note: The Triforce and The Golden Goddesses are only omnipotent when they are together.
As individuals, Farore, Din, and Nayru aren't omnipotent, but they represent courage, power, and wisdom respectively.
/
To use the Triforce correctly it depends on the user.
"A Sacred Triangle that grants the wish of those who touch it. The Triforce does not distinguish between good and evil, and therefore grants both good and evil wishes.
Using it correctly requires a strong heart and inherent ability, as well as balance between power, wisdom and courage. If touched by one without this balance, it splits into three pieces, the Triforce of Power, Wisdom, and Courage. The one who touched it is left with only the one he most strongly believes in, while the other two appear on the back of the hands of two others chosen by the Gods. To obtain its true power, the two missing pieces of the Triforce must be acquired" (pg 70, Hyrule Historia-Japan)
-The only user to use the Triforce correctly are the following, Link (Skyward Sword, to destroy present Demise), Ganon (OoT-Hyrule's Decline, to become Demon King, Rule over Golden land/Dark World) Link (ALttP, A lot of wishes) King of Hyrule (Wind Waker, Give Link and Zelda a future, drown Hyrule)

In Majora's Mask, the time it takes for an hour to pass is 45 seconds. When the Song of Inverted Time is played, it takes 2 minutes, 16 seconds for an hour to pass. In seconds, that's 136 seconds. To find the percent difference, 136 - 45 = 91. 91/45 = 2.022.

Something worth noting is that while people will say Link can slow down his opponents, this is not at all true. Those who are slowed down are those on a schedule like the Postman, or Gorman, or Anju. Everyone else moves at a normal pace. I give credit to my girlfriend for presenting me this interpretation, which I find to be most plausible.

In Majora's Mask, Goron Link is required to punch ice, cylinder blocks in the center of the Snowhead dungeon. Goron Link is estimated to be 6 ft. tall. The cylinder is twice Goron Link's height. The width is estimated to be about 72 ft. It may be wider in diameter. Using these numbers, I can find the cubic feet.

3.14 * 36^2 * 12 = 48,833.28 ft^3

Ice is 57.4 lb/ft^3

48,833.28 * 57.4 = 2,803,030.272 lb., or 1,401.52 short tons.

Keep in mind also that Goron Link is punching a cylinder of this magnitude out from under more weight.

I calculated Link's strength in OoT once again and have ended up with higher results. What I am going to paste here is also going to be posted at a thread at Smash World Forums, so there is no plagiarism involved.

In the Forest Temple, Link moves heavy blocks without any assistance from items. (I’ll ignore the problem with Link being incapable of bending iron bars with his bare hands. Or I might put that into consideration.) The block – presumably made of marble based on its appearance – is two Links high, or 340.36 cm. tall. It’s a perfect cube, so finding the volume is simple enough.

V = 340.36 cm. * 340.36 cm. * 340.36 cm.
V = 39,428,980.238656 cm^3

Marble has a density of 2.67 g/cm^3, so taking the volume of this perfect cube and multiplying it by 2.67 g/cm^3 gives us the total of 105,275,377.23721152 g., or 105.28 metric tons. With the Silver and Golden Gauntlets, Link is capable of pushing and lifting much larger objects than before. I will simply apply the same calculations to determine these as well.

The Silver Gauntlets allow Link to push perfect blocks that seem to be three times his height this time. Again, Link is assumed to be 170.18 cm. tall, so multiplying that by 4 gives us 838,752,982.12680976 cm^3. And once again, the object in question appears to be made of marble. This means the block would be 2,314,958,230.6699949376 g., which is equal to a whopping 2,314.96 metric tons!

Finally, I’ll address the obelisk. From what I eyed before, it’s 30 Links tall, so this gives us a total of 5,105.4 cm. high. This calculation is going to be different, however, because we’re dealing with something that appears to be cylindrical. This is ignoring the top and bottom, so I will only cover 29 Links for this portion and handle the two other portions, since they’re about half Link’s height. So I’m handling 4,935.22 cm. instead. The radius of the obelisk will be Link’s height, halved.

V = pi * r^2 * h
V = 3.14 * 85.09 cm^2 * 4,935.22 cm.
V = 352,486,984.4188303357481664 cm^3

352,486,984.4188303357481664cm^3 * 2.67 g/cm^3
= 941,140,248.398276996447604288 g

Now to address the upper and bottom part. Each part looks about half of Link’s height. The shape is also a hexagonal pyramid, so once again we’re handling a different type of calculation to find the volume.

V = sqrt(3)/2 * a^2 * h
V = sqrt(3)/2 * 170.18 cm^2 * 85.09 cm.
V = 2,134,156.1582494196550065 cm.

Since there are two parts to this, I will multiply it by 2, giving us 4,268,312.316498839310013 cm., which, with the density gives us 11,396,393.88505190095773471 g. Then adding it all together, we end up with 952,536,642.283328897405338998 g., or 952.54 metric tons. Thus, Link’s strength to push and dead lift objects has been calculated.

Speed from Pegasus Boots

I thought of one description for the Pegasus Boots in one of the Zelda games: "Dash with the speed of the legendary steed!" I could only assume this legendary steed is Pegasus, considering the name of the boots. My search led me to wonder how fast Pegasus was, but I couldn't find any results, so my next question was what kind of horse Pegasus was. Some art depicts him as white or a golden color, while others black. I wondered if there were white horses, since I never seen any before. Surprisingly there are. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact name for the white horse, let alone if it originated in Greece.

My next search concerned horse breeds from ancient Greece. I ended up with five, those being the Andravida horse, the Messara horse, the Peneia pony, the Pindos pony, and the Skyros pony. I didn't see any white Andravida or Messara horses, but the Peneia, Pindos, and Skyros ponies can be white. The Peneia pony seems to be a more likely candidate in my opinion. It seems a bit larger and can consistently have white all over. If we went with this pony, we could say we have an idea of how fast Link can run with the Pegasus Boots. The problem, however, is I cannot find the speed for this pony.

Argh!

Edit: September 4, 2014
I know someone around here at FactPileTopia was under the assumption that Link could outrun his arrow in A Link to the Past, so it meant he was running faster than 200 mi/h. This would seem reasonable, since in ALttP, after firing an arrow, Link can catch up to and outrun his own arrows. However, I asked my brother today if he could test for me this same method in A Link Between Worlds. He told me there was a pause after firing an arrow, so when he used his Pegasus Boots to try catching up to his arrow, it was already off-screen. Hence, the Pegasus Boots do not allow Link to run 200 mi/h.

I wanted to test this to see if in ALttP it was a game mechanic or if it was just a game limitation that allowed this. With ALBW, the game engine is better and the results are different. Had they been the same, I'd probably accept Link running faster than 200 mi/h in ALttP. In one of the recent matches, I calculated Link being able to run 79.28 mi/h. This is based on this video. I time the start-up for the Pegasus Boots to be 360 milliseconds. In the video, Link covers at least 15 bushes. If I settle for the typical 5’7″, despite Link appearing to be 16 in this game, then that would mean Link is 1.7018 m.

1.7018 m. * 15 = 25.527 m. Link takes 720 ms to cover the distance in that video. This gives us 35.45 m/s, which is 79.28 mi/h.

I am amazed by the close comparison concerning the Pegasus boots and wind speed!
So, I decided I wanted to make this known to all of you. The highest wind speed on the Beaufort wind scale is equal or greater than 32.6 m/s, or 72.89 mi/h. My calculation, which you can see above ended up with 35.45 m/s, which is 79.28 mi/h. Taking the description of the Pegasus boots in The Minish Cap, which says, "You got the Pegasus Boots! Hold the button to run faster than the wind!", the Pegasus boots based on this scale is definitely exceeding wind speed, meaning for now, I may have figured out the Pegasus boots speed! :o
