I 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 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?
