He ranks 17th on the tier list in the E tier, just one place lower than Link. Young Link has a very good approach due to some low lag aerials, a great SHFFL and a good wavedash, as well as three projectiles. Young Link also is a potent comboer due to his projectiles, and can also edgeguard and space well. However, Young Link's primary flaw is that he has trouble KOing, due a lack of an efficient quick KO move and a difficulty in hitting cleanly with his smash attacks. Additionally, like Link, Young Link has a slow, easily intercepted and predictable recovery, though his ability to wall jump, bomb jump and use his hookshot give him some options. Young Link's recovery, however, is particularly disappointing for his weight class.
