thanks everyone for your comments thanks newgrounds for the front page!!
alot of people wondered what killed link so i will tell you the back story:
link and zelda are fighting ganon but in the heat of battle ganon uses dark magic to posses zelda who then fires her light arrow straight through links heart they bury link under ground and keep his corpse locked in a temple filled with boobie traps so he can never escape! however, link's fairy navi still lives and uses her power to revive link. navi tells link what happened and link is horrifed by his deformed undead appearance he swears revenge on hyrule and navi turns red as a result of their evil plan!
