people get pissed that Zelda’s portrayed as this fuckin damsel in distress and they’re like “TROPES ARE DUMB NINTENDO IS SEXIST”
and i’m like…
played a Zelda game???
when has Zelda EVER ACTUALLY been kidnapped by Ganon PAST THE FIRST GAME?
- in Zelda 2 and I think Minish Cap she was in a cursed sleep
- In ALttP she was hiding and I believe later sealed away in another world for a while
- In OoT she was sneaking around as a ninja trying to help you
- In Four Swords Adventures and A Link Between Worlds she was sealed away
- in Wind Waker she’s a pirate who travels with you
- In Twilight Princess she LITERALLY HELPS YOU KILL GANON AND PARTICIPATES IN THE FIGHT
- in Spirit Tracks she’s DEAD (AND RETURNS FROM THE DEAD AS A GHOST TO HELP YOU ANYWAY.)
- in Skyward Sword she’s training to unlock her potential as the LITERAL GODDESS INCARNATE
- in Breath of the Wild she spent her days studying to unlock her power and then spent a hundred years using it to keep her kingdom safe while all her friends and family FUCKING DIED ALL AROUND HER
she’s sealed away and put to sleep so many times because she NEEDS to be disabled
YOU KNOW WHY?
BECAUSE NOT EVEN DEATH CAN STOP ZELDA FROM KICKING YOUR FUCKING ASS
ZELDA CRIED IN BOTW BECAUSE SHE FAILED TO STOP GANON AND LITERALLY ALLOWED A GENOCIDE TO HAPPEN
SHE’S NOT CRYING BECAUSE “WAH I’M SCARED I NEED A MAN TO PROTECT ME”
SHE’S CRYING BECAUSE SHE WAS TOLD HER ENTIRE LIFE IT WAS HER DUTY TO STOP THE LITERAL END OF THE WORLD. AND SHE FAILED.
SO YOU CAN TAKE YOUR DAMSEL ACCUSATIONS AND GLUE THEM TO ZELDA’S FOOT
SO THEY GET SHOVED UP YOUR ASS WHEN ZELDA KICKS IT
