Why does every Zelda rep suck in Brawl?

Does Sakurai have a grudge against the Zelda series because he couldn't beat Zelda II as a kid?

Discuss.

Toon Link was good, and Sheik was all right.

It's just Link, Ganondorf, and to some extent Zelda that sucked.

And not that I know one way or the other whether Sakurai "balanced" the characters with top-level play in mind, but in my casual experience none of the Zelda reps are all that sucky compared to the rest of the cast. Except maybe Ganondorf since being that slow is annoying no matter what.

Toon Link was freaking fantastic.
Zelda/Sheik were alright.
Link and Ganondorf need buffs or they can die.

They should combine Link and Toon Link to form a single, new character...

Named Link.

If he had Toon Link's speed and Link's strength he'd be amazing. It's this need to divide his strengths by making him two characters that holds him back.

Well, Link in P:M and Brawl- isn't bad.

Only Zelda rep I use is Ganondorf, and yeah. He really sucks. In Melee he was okay, because he had a few quick attacks and was fairly agile. Now, he makes Ike look like Sonic.

To be fair, Sonic was rather slow and clunky.

I liked Sheik and Ganondorf, even though he was slow.

In SSB4, I hope that they use his Skyward Sword aesthetics. THAT Link should be much faster with more swift movements.
