- "After rescuing a shipwrecked youth awash the shores of Koholint Island, Marin, a young woman from Mabe Village, helped wake the Wind Fish from its nightmare to save the world of Link's Awakening. Everyone on Koholint Island adores Marin, but she wants nothing more than to travel across the sea and visit distant lands. She loves to sing, her voice bringing cheer to humans and animals alike. She wields her bell in battle and moves with its rhythmic attacks as if dancing. Its sound waves can attack foes in a wide radius, and can even be used to summon the Wind Fish to aid Marin in battle."

Marin is a DLC character that appears as part of the The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DLC in Hyrule Warriors Legends and Hyrule Warriors. She is a Human from Mabe Village on Koholint Island and a playable version of Marin from Link's Awakening.
Like most DLC characters, Marin has no role in the main story of Hyrule Warriors or Hyrule Warriors Legends. In the game, she is depicted as having a strong association with the Wind Fish, whom she can summon to aid her in battle, likely due to fact that the deity's dream resulted in her and the rest of Koholint Island's inhabitants' very existence.
In addition to being a playable character, she also appears as an enemy NPC on the Koholint Island DLC Adventure Mode map. Owing to her noted physical similarities to Princess Zelda from the original game, Marin, when defeated has drops that also belong to Zelda.
Marin is a talented musician, singer, and dancer. Her singing is even capable of bringing cheer to humans and animals alike. Marin fights primarily wielding Bells in battle and moves with their rhythmic attacks as if dancing. The bells produce sound waves that attack in a wide radius and can be used to summon the Wind Fish to aid Marin in battle.
