This category constitutes an alphabetical list of all the characters in the The Legend of Zelda series.
In the context of this wiki, a character is defined as an entity whose role advances the main plot or a sidequest, has a distinct personality, or is otherwise notable. This does not include nonentities like generic townsfolk.
All characters are capable of speech (or some form of communication), but not all entities who can speak are necessarily characters. For example, many Bosses in Link's Awakening have a few lines of dialogue, but are still not considered "characters."
