Link is a returning veteran that makes his fifth debut in the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Link returns with a few changes, such as being a bit lighter and some moveset changes. These changes are noted to be quite good, as Link may be lighter and easier to launch but his attacks are made faster.
Link is quite fast than your average fighter, but this does not make him one of the fastest characters in the game. Link's moveset is quite packed, as it easily ranges from far-range to melee combat, making him balanced in terms of moveset.
