Character Spotlight: Midna

Rachel Mii Double JumpI realized I was going to make the Character Spotlights a more regular feature.

Then I forgot about it. Go me.

So, here’s another one from a great game!

Midna Twilight Princess Double Jump
Via Wikipedia
Midna made her first appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which was originally released for the Nintendo Gamecube. Now, in 2016, it’s been re-released in HD for the Wii U.

Midna was always an interesting character to me. Her design alone was what caught my attention, as I’m sure it did everyone else. I think she’s cute, even though she’d probably kill me for saying so.

I love the dark colors on her that intertwine on her body and the mask on top of her head just completes the look. The small fang that sticks out is a nice compliment to her personality.

When I watched Kris play Twilight Princess for the first time when the game came out in 2006, I wasn’t sure of what to think of Midna. Part of me thought she was a bad guy.

She’s so sassy and bossy and definitely knows what she’s doing and what she wants. She manipulates Link in a way that you wonder who’s side she’s on–good, bad, or her own.

Twilight Princess has a lot of fantastic characters, but Midna will be my favorite out of the whole game.

I think the developers made the right choice when they decided to make Midna Link’s sidekick for the game.

Who’s your favorite Zelda character? Or your favorite overall video game character?

  1. Midna is an excellent character to do a character spotlight on! She’s much more interesting than the other sidekicks Link has had. And I agree that she is cute and has a cool design. My favorite Zelda character, and overall video game character is Link. He doesn’t actually have that much of a personality, and he’s silent. However, Link’s character is supposed to “link” the avatar to the player. I enjoy the feeling of playing as Link. It gives me a sense of comfort knowing that I’m in control of such a courageous hero. He gets to do so many amazing things in his adventures, and I admire that about him.

    Another non-Link choice would be Sheik. I love Zelda as well, but Sheik was her embracing a side we had never seen until then. Unlike Peach, I don’t consider Zelda to be just a damsel in distress, but a true warrior, willing to go out into the field and help the Hero of Time out. Sheik also has ninja moves that made me think she was so cool when I was younger. My wife and I love Link and Sheik so much that we incorporated dance moves based on them for our wedding!
