12 Links:

Skyward Sword Link
The Minish Cap Link
Four Swords Link
Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask Link
A Link to the Past/Oracle of Seasons/Oracle of Ages/Link's Awakening Link
A Link Between Worlds/Tri Force Heroes Link
The Legend of Zelda/The Adventure of Link Link
Twilight Princess Link
Four Swords Adventures Link
The Wind Waker/Phantom Hourglass Link
Spirit Tracks Link
Breath of the Wild Link

13 Zeldas:

Skyward Sword Zelda
The Minish Cap Zelda
Four Swords Zelda
Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask Zelda
A Link to the Past/Oracle of Seasons/Oracle of Ages Zelda
A Link Between Worlds Zelda
The Legend of Zelda Zelda
The Adventure of Link Zelda
Twilight Princess Zelda
Four Swords Adventures Zelda
The Wind Waker/Phantom Hourglass Zelda
Spirit Tracks Zelda
Breath of the Wild Zelda

Standard lore is that Ganon is always the same Ganon but Loki is rejecting this. It wouldn't make sense to count the same character twice for multiple times he opposes the same Link, so here is my count of 8 Ganons:

Ocarina of Time Ganon
A Link to the Past/Oracle of Seasons/Oracle of Ages Ganon
A Link Between Worlds Ganon
The Legend of Zelda/The Adventure of Link Ganon
Twilight Princess Ganon
Four Swords Adventures Ganon
The Wind Waker Ganon
Breath of the Wild Ganon

What about Impa? She has had multiple designs as well over the years and there's a particular one I would vote for.

Oh hey I've gotten like 5 lists so far and only one of them has write-ups. I thought that was a thing we were doing now? I mean, no worries if you don't want to opine on a Like-Like (please opine on a Like-Like), but I was planning on incorporating them into the final list.

Loki has decided to open the ark of the covenant.

I'm sure it'll be fine.

It's hard enough to come up with a list. I'm not going to write an essay on each one.

That's YOUR job!

And you know I'm up for it.

But people writing-in is a trend that's been more popular in recent lists and I was hoping to incorporate it. I don't want anyone to feel obligated, but I did want people to know it is an option.

Instead I will draw doodles, very bad ones because I am not good at art, I expect you to incorporate them Loki.

I actually had a lot of fun justifying my entries. I hope you enjoy reading them.

And that I didn't accidentally break more rules I'm sorry!

Write-ups are not a standard procedure - they are at the discretion / risk of the listmaster. The lesson we have learned from Top Bosses is that extra stuff like that should be placed after the list (if it it can fit in the same PM).

You asked for writeups; you surely got them. I know I have a tendency to go long, but in this case it came as something of a surprise even to myself, as I don't generally like Zelda much. Much of my writing was then expressed through perennial frustration and disappointment contrasted against the highlights, which I hope is an interesting perspective. It was fun to compose and collect my thoughts on, at any rate.

I may or may not have included characters such as Madame MeowMeow and Pinkle on my list.

I compiled a secondary list that's 25 different Gerudo which is sincere and which I could justify and explicate on but it will unfortunately pass into the mists of apocryphal history in favour of something more holistically diverse.

If I can vote twice, I will absolutely make a more jokey list including no Zeldas or Links to clog it up.

Uh. I meant one official vote list to Loki and then another joke list posted wherever and whenever.

edit: And away my PMs go. There were only 3 this time - I must be slipping. Stupid Ice Palace floors...

I made a legit list with no Links or Zeldas clogging it up. Didn’t even think to include them.

(Ganon was there, but only one of him)
