    Link isn't incredibly afraid of Ganon in any of the games I've played. The mechanical effect of such a phobia might prevent a number of the games' stories from taking place. Also I don't know any player who routinely holds onto bombs for too long. That's a really dumb thing which players learn not to do, as opposed to a really dumb thing that players learn they should do, like breaking pots, cutting grass and tumbling excessively.

    And, thank you, I've found some more feats he must have:
    Point Blank shot
    Spring attack
    Self-sufficient

    ...And prerequisites.
    Of course, not all of these have to be flaws. He gets a bonus feat for being human Hyrulian, and lets not forget class levels. I'm pretty sure he has Wild-shape Ranger and MoMF... (Majora's mask+Twilight Princess)
    Anywho, any more flaws we can tag on him?

    A lot of the things Link does in combat can be replicated with ToB maneuvers, so he could have Warblade levels to perform his his moves instead of like a dozen feats. I'm not sure if there is a Spin Attack maneuver, but it would actually fit the best because of the time he needs to spend between each one in most Zelda games which lines up with ToB classes' recovery mechanics. He's also got a couple of jumping attack things that I know Tiger Claw can do. His sidestepping is pretty easily just a 5ft step.

    But I really have no idea about the magic item use. He can use them all perfectly as soon as he gets them, except for the magical instruments. I think the items themselves are made for ease-of-use, instead of a special synergy with Link himself (the Master Sword is an exception).

    It's absolutely perfect, considering that the attack does double damage in every Zelda game I've ever played (it's seriously become an unbalanced part of his arsenal now that the swordfighting has gotten more intricate). It's 8th level, but I guess it really shouldn't be surprising, since it has also been a staple that Link always just happens to be the world's greatest swordsman despite living a simple village life up until adventure time.

    Is there a way he can knock foes back with it?

    edit: Guys, he's supposed to be a talented warrior. People with Weapon Focus feats represent the opposite. Enough with the Weapon Focus.

    Just cause he uses them now and again doesn't mean he needs weapon focus with them, though.

    If we're going by the original Zelda: Aquaphobic. Dude can't swim, and needs a ladder or raft to get across any body of water.

    Inability to break down locked doors.

    Pyromaniac. To find all the hidden passages, he basically has to burn down all of Hyrule with the Candle.

    Obsessive with the cardinal directions. He can't/won't attack anything diagonally.

    He just failed at swimming then. In most Zelda games he at least acquired the ability to swim via magic item if he didn't start with it. If this was the result of a phobia, the acquisition of these items wouldn't matter, and his ability to swim without items in recent games contradicts it entirely anyways.

    I do reckon he has the nameless flaw, no-one seems to know who he is despite the fact he wears teh legendery green tunic, stranger still everyone who does recignise it presumes its just a cheap ripoff and never suspects he is an actual hero.

    I always thought he affixed them to the bowshaft. Those rupees must have been sharp. (Probably had something to do with how easily Gannon was able to overwhelm Hyrule - if half your warriors cut their hands when trying to buy a burger you're not going to have an effective fighting force).
