This is my opinion as a Link main who plays Link too much and doesn't care to play other characters much either.

Link on Hyrule:

Pika: Large Disadvantage
Fox: Large Disadvantage (slightly worse than Pika, I stress this)
Kirby: Disadvantage
Falcon: Disadvantage
Mario: Disadvantage
Yoshi: Small Disadvantage
DK: Small Disadvantage
Ness: Small Advantage
Jigglypuff: Small Advantage or Even
Luigi: Advantage
Samus: Advantage

Link on Dreamland

Pika: Huge Disadvantage
Fox: Disadvantage
Kirby: (Large) Disadvantage
Falcon: Large Disadvantage
Mario: Large Disadvantage
Yoshi: Disadvantage
DK: Disadvantage
Ness: Small Disadvantage
Jigglypuff: Small Disadvantage
Luigi: Small Advantage or Even
Samus: Small Disadvantage or Even

I copypasted from the original thread. I assume my opinions have not changed since then (since I haven't actually played as Link since then).

For Dreamland this is what I think it should be changed to:

Fox: HUGE disadvantage
Kirby: Disadvantage-Even(Just play keep away the whole time and you'll be fine)
Mario: Disadvantage-Even(Leaning more towards even)
Ness: Disadvantage
Luigi: Advantage
Samus: Advantage

Everything else seems fine for Dreamland.

Maybe Fox on DL is a large disadvantage but I think he's definitely not as bad as Pikachu.

Hyrule:
Mario: Even, get at me
Jigglypuff: Slight Advantage or Advantage

Dreamland:
Mario: Slight Disadvantage or Disadvantage
Luigi: Even
Samus: Even

I just looked at the Hyrule matchups and wow lol. This is horribly wrong for Link matchups. Link's camp game is top tier on this stage and extremely hard to punish.

Fox is either Huge/Large disadvantage for Hyrule still, but everyone else needs to be looked at.

Link really is that good at camping on Hyrule. If you don't believe him then play against his Link and try to approach...

Kirby in particular seems hopeless to me. Large advantage for Link imo.

Alright. I do know how amazing his camp game can be, given that I have been one stock down to four/five stocks against a better player, and forced him quite a few times down to one stock before getting opportunistic.

Pika: Disadvantage
Fox: Large Disadvantage
Kirby: Small Advantage
Falcon: Even
Mario: Disadvantage
Yoshi: Advantage
DK: Advantage
Ness: Advantage
Jigglypuff: Large Advantage
Luigi: Advantage
Samus: Large Advantage

I don't believe Link beats Kirby quite that handily. I can believe a small or even average advantage, but large is a bit too much.
