Miyamoto has given several different ages, but I think the most recent was 9 years old. Which makes sense, since Skyward Sword is supposed to be the oldest Link, and he's 17 and a half.

According to the debug rom it states Link is 7 but during an interview Iwata Asks for Ocarina of Time 3D, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that Link is about 12. Although in previous interviews Miyamoto has stated that Link is 9 or 10. Seems like the old man is confused and can't make his mind up.

Also Eiji Aonuma is the producer, director and project manager of The Legend of Zelda series.

In the words of Eiji Aonuma:

"Link’s supposed to be about 12 years old, and instead of imbuing him with the wisdom you might expect to find in an honors student, I wanted to create a Link that put a lot of energy into solving problems and getting out of the sticky situations he found himself in."


In Link's Awakening, Link has been confirmed to be 17 years old. But have you noticed in the Switch remake of Link's Awakening, Link has a high pitched voice? Explain how Skyward Sword Link has a deep voice at only 17 Axem Great Warrior.

Skyward Sword Link looks 19 years old.

That's easy to explain, actually. Basically, people grow and develop at different rates. Your physical body may finish developing at/around the age of 19, but that means nothing for the brain or the vocal cords. Just because 99.999999% of people have their adult voices or something very close by that age doesn't mean literally everybody has it. Case in point: My voice dropped around the time I turned 13, but I went to high school with someone whose voice remained high-pitched even as we graduated together (I'm not sure when his birthday fell relative to the school year, but I know I was 17 at that time, and so he was 17/18 as well). So someone who's legally an adult can still have a high-pitched voice.

And you have to realize that they're two different Links, after all, so one could have a deep voice while the other doesn't.

No Brandy I actually know people who agree with me that Child Link is 12 and Adult Link is 19 in Ocarina of Time.

Nobody can be 100% sure of Link's real age but Child Link being 12 and Adult Link being 19 are the most logical ages.

And whoever voted for Child Link being 7, you do realise Link sleeps for 7 years to become an adult? On what planet are 14 year olds considered fully grown adults?

On Earth. Maybe not in modern times but there have been plenty of cultures throughout history, especially those similar to Hyrule, wherein you were considered an adult as young as 13.

The real question is "how old is Baby Mario in the sequel to Super Mario World, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island".
