Shulk vs Link is a what if Death Battle. It features Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles and Link from Legend of Zelda.


Nintendo's greatest swordsmen collide in a fight to the finish. Will Link be the Hero of Death Battle or will Shulk be feelin it!


Wiz: Legends tale of swordsmen who could slice their foes down with ease. Tales of heroes venturing across the land in hopes of saving their worlds.

Boomstick: And legends continue to today, in the form of video games.

Wiz: Shulk, wielder of the Monado.

Boomstick: and Link, the Hero of Time.

Wiz: While there are many versions of Link, we for the most part will be focusing on his most iconic and most powerful incarnation, the one from the N64 classics, albeit with weapons and feats from other Links too. Meanwhile Shulk will have access to everything as well.

Boomstick: He's Wiz, and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their armor, weapons, and skills to find out who would win a DEATH BATTLE!

Shulk Is Really Feelin' It In Death Battle[]

Wiz: Long ago the world was nothing more than an endless sea. Two massive titans, were locked in an endless battle. These were the Bionus and the Mechonus.

Boomstick: The two beasts fought for a millennia. Seriously, these two fought forever!

Wiz: Until both managed to strike the other down at the same time.

Boomstick: Oddly convenient.


Link Is Reincarnated For Death Battle[]

Wiz: Long ago, the Demon King Demise sought the power of the Triforce, a magical relic left by the gods able to grant the wish of whoever touched it.

Boomstick: However he was promptly sealed away by the goddess Hylia, who then sacrificed herself to be reincarnated among the mortals. Why she would give up being immortal I will never know.

Wz: Well, before she would do this, she gave her friend, a mysterious hero of old, a soul that would reincarnate whenever the world needed him most.

Boomstick: And this was the very first.....Link!

Wiz: But just before Demise could die, he cursed the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero to forever be haunted by his wrath and hatred given form.

Boomstick: When this came true, Link was long since dead, and the Demise's hatred had been reborn as Ganondorf.
