Linkle is a playable character introduced in the video game Hyrule Warriors Legends for the Nintendo 3DS. However, she can also be transferred to Hyrule Warriors for the Nintendo Wii U. She fights using dual crossbows in combination with bombs and kicks. Linkle's tale is considered separate from the main story.

Linkle is a young woman from a small village in Hyrule. There she leads a simple life tending to her flock of cuccos. She is energetic and confident, and strongly believes she is the legendary hero reborn. She is also kind, brave and heroic, and won't back down if someone is in need of saving. After all, that's what heroes do! Linkle carries with her a magic compass, she received from her grandmother, that has been passed down in the family for generations. She believes the compass is proof that she is indeed the legendary hero.

When word spread to Linkle's village that Hyrule Castle was under siege by monsters Linkle wasted no time preparing and dressed her part as the legendary hero, wearing her green tunic, and hurried to Hyrule Castle. Despite having her compass and a crudely drawn map, Linkle's poor sense of direction caused her to miss the sign leading to the castle and she took the wrong road as a result, leading Linkle on a journey she did not expect.
