Young Link was addressed in Character Of The Month #103. [I'll update that link once the relevant post has been migrated here.]

Link's overall improvements, versatile moveset, & high spirit/skill-tree compatibility have led him to be my crutch character for the Spirit Board and World of Light.

It took me ages to get Toon Link up to 6.0 in Classic (starting from the default 2.0).


And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
