During development, inspired by Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, Shigeru Miyamoto wanted to have a number of characters aside from Link that the player could use. He had specifically wanted to do so with the third game in the series ever since the first was released, and wanted Link, a magic user, and a girl (likely a fairy) to be used. This idea was left out during development, keeping the playable characters limited to Link.
