Link’s Top 5 “Hyah!” Yells

(Super Smash Bros. Melee)

The man, the yell, the Legend of Zelda himself. Link is our favorite silent protagonist, but mostly because every time he breaks that silence, the resulting scream is the stuff of icons. While the possibilities and combinations of Link's yells are really endless, here are the top 5 greatest Link yells of all time, ranked for memorability, reactions, and plain ol' nostalgia.


5. I like to think of this one as, “exasperated Link,” like he’s waiting for Zelda to come out of the dressing room when he hears her say, “this dress makes me look like a Goron!”

4. Embarrassed Link is hilarious, especially after an awkward encounter with a particularly flirty Gerudo.

3. The wind-up “shyeah!” is over the top, it’s dramatic, and it’s perfect for all the effort that goes into spinning that Kokiri Sword.

2. Likely the yell that comes to mind when you think “Legend of Zelda,” the “Classic Link Sound” is the straightforward “hyah!” It’s memorable, simple, and so satisfyingly mimic-able.

1. Reserved for a falling death, Link’s dramatic, “Hyaaahhh!” is as iconic as it is hilarious, calling to memory past Smash Bros humiliations (and personal ones, too).

Hyah, hyah hyaah hyahhh hyah!
