#1 – Skull Kid
As Majora’s Mask is arguably the best Zelda game ever (or a proven fact as far as I’m concerned), it’s only natural that the game’s villain(?) would take the top spot on the list. It might seem silly that such a frail-looking character would do well in a battlefield setting, but, if you have the power to pull the moon down from the sky, that has to count for something, right? Since Skull Kid isn’t exactly equipped for a head-on melee encounter, most of his attacks would come from distance-based magic attacks. When he’s not blasting enemies with powerful magic, however, Skull Kid would also be able to use his super moves to transform groups of foes into weaker forms, like Deku Scrubs or Octoroks. And, hey, since the moon has already been revealed in the game, all we need is the adorable little imp to complete the package.
Well, there you have it. I guess we’ll see how good our guesses were once Hyrule Warriors hits store shelves on September 26. Of course, this is only 10 characters out of a multitude of choices, and, I assure you, it wasn’t easy cutting so many out as we cast our votes. So, if there’s someone you feel that we should have included in the list (and I’m quite sure there is), feel free to discuss in the comments.
