Seriously. You never know what you'll find in it.
And yes, Do take the sword from whatever old man might come up to you and tell you: "It's dangerous to go alone. Take this."
Sure Ganon is massively bigger than Link, but every time he fights Link he loses. Ganondorf may have the triforce of Power, but Link has the triforce of Courage! So obviously this equation is also valid:
Courage > Power
Link wears green. He's the Hero of Hyrule. Also, he's the only one who can use the Master Sword. Nuff said.
Link never would have succeeding in saving all of Hyrule if it hadn't been for his trusty Ocarina. And it was a whole lot easier to get around the Great Sea once Link would conduct the Wind Waker to summon a cyclone to get him from one end of the sea to the other.
Even if Link has pretty much nothing to say himself he's awful good at getting info from talking with people.
Seriously, it has defeated Ganondorf and locked him away from terrorizing Hyrule countless times, but somehow he seems to constantly make his way out...maybe he picks the lock somehow...
Wether it's Navi, Midna, Tatl, Fi or The King of Red Lions, Link needs a trusty companion to help him fulfill his destiny to save Hyrule.
His prices for dephiering maps are high. He steals your force gems and he does it all with an idiotic grin on his face....UUUugghhhh TINGLE!!! At least he's kinda better in Majora's Mask.
