The Battle of the Small, er... Mini, Who shall be victorious?!

Votes for Miniblin

  1. Any enemy that doesn't wrap around and trap me, then annoy me to death while i am trying to pwn a stalfos, is good for me. Guru-Guru Traveling Musician With Odd Instruments 15:41, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  2. Both are my most hated enemy, but I guess the style of these are bit cooler. (instead being just a bunch of skeletons)DekuBaily 15:52, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  3. I like these guys better. I remember having a homerun contest with my brother to see who could hit them the farthest with a horizontla swing from the skull hammer. Can't do that with stalkin, they just explode into millions of tiny pieces.--Moblin slayer 15:55, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. They all dissapear in a puff of smoke while using a hurrican spin, Fun. Solar flute
  5. The Stalkins just kind of swarm and attack you from the front - You do a single jump strike and they're all dead (Or, since they're technically already dead, at least destroyed so they can't attack you anymore). The Miniblins in Phantom Hourglass were kinda lame, but I love the ones from Wind Waker. They're way more persistent (In some places, they're infinite - The Stalkins always have a set amount in any given room) and they come at you from every direction. Xykeb Zraliv 21:47, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  6. How can you not just love them?! They swarm from out of no where, crying "neh neh", and poking at you pathetically with there little forks. In the Savage Labyrinth they were almost infinite and it was just hilarious to watch them all die. All though i am not saying that the Stalkin are pathetic (although they are both pretty pathetic) Miniblin gets my vote. T0manat0r
  7. Both are incredibly annoying. These guys freak me out. I don't really know what to vote for here, but I just wanna be on the winning team. --AuronKaizerKennedy! 19:39, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
  8. Crazyfool29 04:00, 31 July 2008 (UTC) Come, on! They are infinate! they just keep coming, and u just keep killin them & u keep gettin rupees! I luv the[[m!
  9. --Vidiman 03:33, 5 August 2008 (UTC) I like these guys because they can actually climb walls in case you tru to escape them. Plus they make funny sounds.
  10. king boo 20:41, 5 August 2008 (utc) There cooler they just suround jou and jou suddenly hear dan neh and then jou know : oh no here they come get them off of me !!!! While the stalkins cheated by walking over quicksand extra proof:I remembered them by name while the stallkins even took me time to remember after seeing the picture !
  11. Miniblins get my vote because they work together more and can dodge sword hits. Plus, they remind me of pikmin and they don't rely on biggger enemies to attack you while you're bogged down *coughcoughSTALFOScoughcough* Kariya
  12. My vote has to go for the miniblins becuase as mentioned earlier they work together better. But come on they can climb on walls! User:The King of the Loveless

  1. Miniblins were SO annoying in WW. Their obnoxious voices are worse enough, plus they laugh evilishly when fighting you. When they jab you with their stick-like thing, they giggle annoyingly. When your're on a path, you can hear them before they get to you. I shudder to think of them. Not that they are scary, but they are so annoying to kill. Worse, when you kill them, more surround you. So i think that Miniblins would beat the stals because, 1. they look and act more viciously, and 2. they would squash the stals with their size.
  2. Stalkins irritate me due to the fact they sometimes fight on quicksand.
  3. Mimblins would beat them to a pulp because they have more guts then stalkins.
  4. Miniblins actually have some meat on their bones and can't be defeated with a bat of your eyelashes.

Votes for Stalkin

  1. Let's face it, Stalkin is WAY better. Let's also face it, Miniblin was way too easy to kill, the didn't swarm over, with tons of ReDeads behind them. And, a Miniblin just looks stupid. I can name more. Aghanim the Mage 23:06, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
  2. The undead is better. --God Of Thunder!!! 16:13, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
  3. I'm voting for these guys because they're quiet. Miniblins drove me crazy with their "battle cries". SilverDragon28 15:39, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. MINIBLINS DRIVE ME INSANE!!!!!!!!! I almost turned off the game when I first encountered them in Wind Waker User:Power courage wisdom and time
  5. I don't know why I supported this. I guess stalkin are the lesser of two annoyances. XXXXX Talk to me OR ELSE! 16:23, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
  6. they get my vote cuase there cool and in the first part of wind waker when you lose your sword i got so *!@%!##%#$%!$&^*@ at them. I hate miniblin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! threr so anoying (but not as bad in PH)--Toonlink 17:18, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  7. these guys looked so much more awesome than the pesky miniblins of tww. tp is an all-out better game than tww. DarkBeastGanon 20:21, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  8. okay, these guys are the undead (meaning they have supernatural powers) versus a few pesky, easy to beat goblin-like creatures. who's gonna win?? which one instills more fear? no contest. Heroofhyrule 20:25, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  9. I agree; these guys look way more frightening and could overwhelm and undercut Miniblins. I just don't see Miniblins being very competitive at all against these guys. Zeldarocks1989 20:31, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  10. miniblins are anoying and these guys look better!!!--LL 22:45, 31 July 2008 (UTC)
  11. I'm gonna have to rule that Stalkins are far more frightening to look at and look aesthetically better than the more annoying Miniblins. They had supernatural powers, as stated by someone else, and they attacked in such numbers that they would vastly overwelm the smaller packs of Miniblins. Stalkins are just overall the more challenging and more eye-catching adversaries than Miniblins. Hero of Time 87 02:16, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
  12. I like the swarm of thousands of tiny skeletons, even though after a while i was glad to leave, i cant stand the miniblin sound, and they are too pestersome, if they trap you in a corner, its hard to get out. Raz 16:06, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
  13. I'll vote for the small skelentons cause they don't go "DaH Nah" over and over again Behellmorph 19:35, 1 August 2008 (UTC)
  14. User:Toonlink47 Sorry guys I changed my mind. I got fed up with them the other day. That changed my vote. These guys can slaughter miniblins. Plus their dah neh chant gets stuck in my head. %&$@ you miniblins. I don't like cursing at miniblin they are annoying. They keep the most annoying enemy of the year award. I could face a thousand miniblins and come out alive. Undead is my favorite type of enemy. Plus like User:Toonlink said they make my head explode when you lose your sword.
  15. Dark Ridley 23:50, 6 August 2008 (UTC) Since Stalkin usually worked with Redead......they could be more dangerous.
  16. I just liked these guys better. G. S Joe
  17. Well, It Appears My Winning Streak Has Effectively Ended, So I Am Now 12-1... In Anycase, I Think Skeletons Are Beast, So Stalkins FTW!!! Kperfekt722 02:10, 9 August 2008 (UTC)
  18. The Shadow of Time The Stalkin may very well be one of my more favorite enemies, right behind Dark Link, on the other hand, the Miniblin are some what fun in combat, but i'm with most other people when Link's sword is gone, they were anoying.
  19. Necromancer Vs. Rat? Hahaha what an obvious fight. Stalkins win. The Legend of Time

  1. Undead people are awesome!
  2. The Stalkins have my vote because I find them more thought provoking. You can see the Miniblins as small living demons, but the Stalkins aren't living, so who, or what, were they when they were alive?
  3. Stalkins are technically Stals, and Stals are awesome
  4. Stalkins aren't nearly as annoying as Miniblins, which bug me to DEATH!
  5. Stalkins are just plain cool. theyre like undead locusts out for your soooouuuul!!!
  6. I agree with the person above me. I hate those little things that go "dah nah" all the time. They kept coming and coming. Now, these mini-skeletons are easy to defeat, don't make the VERY annoying noises, and well, you get it.
  7. Miniblins are just plain stupid with thier battle cries, well Stalkins don't have the noise and just as easy.
  8. Stalkins also, team up with ReDeads (in TP, Abiter's Grounds) and that can add to the threat factor.
  9. They look scarier.
  10. there skeletons, and they swarm. best of al they have weapons.
  11. People hello! There a like a trillion of them that attack you at once! There are like 2 or 4 that attack you with those other annoying devils!
  12. These ones attack in bigger groups and they look cooler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. I hate the miniblins!!! they once gave me a nightmarre!!!!
  14. the stallkins are undead pretty much cause they're skeletons and then the miniblins are alive so yeah plus i like the stalkins better

Number 5 voter for miniblin did sign their vote. It's Xykeb.Solar flute
1. I really cannot chose between these two. I hate them both. =/ -User:SageofWater.

Come on, there's gotta be one that annoys you more. You sure one of them didn't cause you a game over or something? --AuronKaizerKennedy! 20:28, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
Possibly the miniblins. Maybe the problem is I don't remember the Stalkins all that well? haha.-User:SageofWater

Is there a better picture of the Stalkins? The one there is rather blurry. Xykeb Zraliv 00:47, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Their resolution is rather small and as such, they become ugly when stretched to 300 pixels. Can't find any replacement images either... --AuronKaizerKennedy! 00:59, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Upon looking at the Temple of Courage archives, I read somewhere that anonymous votes count as half-votes. Is this true? If so, this could be the closest fight since Gorons vs. Zoras. Although, considering how much the other ones have won by, it STILL might be the closest fight since the first one. Xykeb Zraliv 22:45, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Scratch that, Stalkin has WAY more votes since I wrote that comment. Xykeb Zraliv 05:13, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Aren't these supposed to be one week each? It seems like it's been several. Xykeb Zraliv 04:44, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Week 13: Phantom Ganon vs. Dark Link

Winner!
Darklink
"Dark Link"
10 < 28

Votes for Phantom Ganon

  1. If he doesn't die when you smack him with a hammer, he's cool. --God Of Thunder!!! 18:36, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
  2. It took me 5 tries to beat him. It only took 3 or four on dark link's. It's also easy too find dark link's weakness, I never found PG's out until I went here after I beat him. Solar flute
  3. I really wanted to go for Dark Link ,but to even the score, I suppose this is for the best. Besides, Dark Link copies Link, but Phantom Ganon has his own actions. So what would Dark Link do? Also, if it matters, can Dark Link's Sword be as effective as the Master Sword or any other of the powerful swords Link used against Phantom? And my last argument is that all Phantom Ganons look beast(even WW's).--SxeFluff 04:44, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. Not only the hardest (or one of the harder boss') of OoT, it was also a hard, fun fight, and the specter rides a gores, then comes of of painting and shoots lightning at you! UberPhoeba b c 13:59, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
  5. Dark Link Is A LOSER :) - Ganondorf Could Destroy Dark Link ANYTIME :D Kperfekt722 05:12, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
  6. I killed Dark Link only with the hammer in OOT in FSA it was lame and in AOL it had a secretJoshass123.
  7. Dark link was way to easy all you had to do is keep using dins fire, phantom ganon was a challenge Chuck norris rules, he can round house kick your face yesterday 16:59 20 July 2008 (GMT)
  8. Dark Link was too easy. Phantom Ganon was more of a challange, mainly trying to reflect back his energy balls. Also, the sword from his Wind Waker version is AWESOME looking. Phantom Ganon. Is that your final answer? Yes, yes it is.
  9. Phantom Ganon FTW. A demonic flying goat riding a horse, throws lighting, and looks like ganon. DjMack 02:15, 25 July 2008 (UTC)

  1. Honestly guys, Dark Link is SO overated it's unbelievable. Phantom Ganon is a copy of Ganondorf, the greatest villian ever! Why not vote for him?! -Ellie
  2. Dark Link was a pissoff in The Adventure of Link, and in Ocarina of Time I killed him with like two jits from Din's Fire. Phantom Ganon was just more fun to fight.

Votes for Dark Link

  1. Link always beats Ganondorf, so Link's copy would more than likely beat Ganondorf's copy. Besides, the red eyes are just awesome. -Moblin slayer 18:41, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
  2. Dark AK: Dark Link is the embodiment of the dark side that resides within us all...except Bruce Campbell. The Dark Link fight in Ocarina of Time is pretty damn hard without the Giant's Knife/Biggoron Sword, which is more than I can say for Phanty. The battle with him is entertaining and all, but just too easy. When I first came into Dark Link's room, and saw a lone tree in a sea of mist, I was thinking "Okay, I'm scared now", if only because it was totally unexpected. You go figure. 18:44, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
  3. Go dark link! he has to beat phantom ganon if normal link can. plus, his color scheme is too cool to lose;) Raz 19:20, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
  4. "With the power of cheese, I'll destroy you!"--
    Phantom Ganon, but if you believe that, I question your sanity.
    Phantom G-man is cool and all, but Dark Link owneth!XXXXX Talk to me OR ELSE! 19:52, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
  5. Dark Link owns your face-LeoLab 20:28, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
  6. Dark Link mimics all of your moves. It's just a suicide fight and a game of chance. You hope you hit him more than he hits you. You just hit energy back at Phantom Ganon. Template:Goronfan/sig Wow. I posted this over on Phantom Ganon on accident.
  7. User:T0manat0r Dark Link has always been one of my favourite bosses. Besides, Phantom Ganon was way to easy, Dark Link was fun and at least a bit of a challenge.
  8. It took me awhile to figure out that Dark Link is impervious to sword attacks...Template:PCWTsig
  9. If Link always beats Ganon, why should their copies be any different? DekuBaily
  10. Comeon he looks cool! phantom ganon is to easy to beat in WW and Oot darnk link for me is way harder--Toonlink 19:40, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
  11. He may look like Link but black with dark aadded to the name name but there's something about him thats more sinister than the phantom, its like Dark Samus. Behellmorph 12:57, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
  12. User:Crazyfool29 Easily Dark Link, he was so fun to fight and is one of my favourite bosses. Phantom Ganon was just too easy, Dark Link as one of the best battles to date!
  13. PsychoSexy Gannon is already the king of evil, so a dark or phantom version of him is just a weaker version. A dark version of link is very cool, stylized, and dark. It's also coll to see a complete foil for Link.
  14. Dark Ridley 17:44, 21 July 2008 (UTC) Dark Link probably has the entire version of Links arsenal, while phantom ganon has only a spear and energy attack.
  15. Phantom Ganon is created as a sort of prelude for Ganondorf, intentionally made by Ganondorf to be weaker than himself, to guard Ganondorf or an important item. Dark Link, on the other hand, is just as good as Link, but without Link's full arsenal of weapons, and Dark Link would probably beat Link hands down if it weren't for those weapons. So, assuming that Link only has his sword, it would be: Dark Link > Link, Link > Ganondorf, Ganondorf > Phantom Ganon. As such, Dark Link easily wins. Plus, from a popularity viewpoint, he just plain looks cooler. Xykeb Zraliv 01:06, 18 July 2008 (UTC)
  16. User: Toonlink47 Dark Link is awsome. Phantom Ganon is my least favorite boss in the series.
  17. Lord Xale:Yeah, um, I just have to say that although Phantom Ganon is cool and all, Dark Link is probably capable of beating him, since he can preform all the same moves as Link, nd then some... plus he has a sword... But spears are okay too, I guess... Plus he apears to be made completely from shadow, and no one knows how he was realy created... Two things that I love in a villain!
  18. He is able to counter all of Link's moves. He is Link's dark equal. Enough said. Hero of Time 87 05:52, 21 July 2008 (UTC)
  19. Pit the Angel Dark link is my favorite mini boss in OoT he was much better the phantom ganon. Dark link has all of links moves and his own variety while Phantom Ganon just rides his horse and goeses into paintings and charge at u.
  20. I like Dark Link a lot more than Phantom Ganon <spanstyle='color:blue;"> Th Master
  21. I just prefer Dark Link a lot more than Phantom Ganon.--Ganny321

  1. DARK LINK ROCKS!
  2. Dark Link is so cheap that [Phantom] Ganon[dorf] can't even hit him with the anoying lightning attacks.
  3. Phantom Ganon is just a weaker version of the real Ganondorf. Dark Link is equally matched in all Link's skils making him a worthy opponent
  4. Phantom Ganon is an overused character with the same strategy every...single...time. Dark/Shadow Link is the great embodiment of Link's Dark Side, and doesn't get enough fights to prove his full potential. Dark/Shadow Link manages to be a challenge in Ocarina of Time and the battle is the only fun thing in the Water Temple while Phantom Ganon is a boss that wasn't fun at all in a boring and stupid dungeon with no other fun parts, so it made the Forest Temple even less interesting.
  5. dude dark link would pwn phantom ganon
  6. Well if Dark Link is a copy of Link and Phantom Ganon is a copy of Ganon and Link always beats Ganon then it would be logical that Dark Link would always beat Phantom Ganon.
  7. in Oot, i think that both bosses were pretty hard, even though dark link was only a mini-boss. When i faced Phantom Ganondorf, i didn't lose because he was so strong, i just ran out of arrows trying to shoot him in the paintings. When i faced Dark Link, i got owned so many times that it wasn't funny. i had to do the sidequest for the biggoron sword in order to defeat him. So Dark Link , in battle, with my opinion, is a lot harder.
  8. Dark Link appears in a lot more games, plus Phantom Ganon has never been a final boss.
  9. Wow did I have trouble with Dark Link in OoT! Seriously, Phantom Ganon is cake if you know what to do. Dark Link, on the other hand, took skills. Plus, Dark Link is way cooler and more mysterious.
  10. The fact that Link himself beat Ganondorf AND Ganon (The ultra-form of Ganondorf) would tell me that an inverse copy of Dark Link would easily defeat a copy of Ganondorf that does not have the ability to become a Ganon copy.
  11. Oh god where do I even begin? One, Phantom Ganon is pathetic. You smack his energy back at him then cut him up. No tricks required. Dark Link however is very tough to beat in a sword duel (no items/magic). He parrys everything you throw at him and even ends up jumping ONTO YOUR SWORD if you try a thrust. How cool is that? Also, it's very possible he is even more evil than Ganondorf himself. Why? Link is probibly the most pure hearted person in Hyrule, and if Dark Link is his shadow, his polar opposite, wouldn't that make him a being of unsurpassed evil? Not only that, but ask yourself... how would you feel if you had to fight someone with the exact same features as you, the same skills as you, on an equal, or possibly greater level. How would you feel if you had to theoretically kill yourself to save yourself? I'm gonna be honest. That would scare the crap out of me...
  12. in Oot, i have destroyed everything that moves against me in the hardest fashion, including with the tv upside down. the only enemy that has every stood a chance against me is Dark link. i play him in brawl, and his costume in melee. His toughness is unnatural. it is chaotic. I like that. plus, his fight was the most fun in the game
  13. Considering Phantom Ganon doesn't have a Megaton Hammer, Dark Link gets my vote.
  14. i LOVE LINK DARK OR DARK LINK THE SAME AS YOU PRITY PHANTOM GANON

Can we vote for Phantom Ganon if we're referring to the WW version? XXXXX Talk to me OR ELSE! 21:37, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

I think Phantom Ganon encompasses all the Phantom Ganons. Same thing with Dark Link. However, I don't know. Murch? --AuronKaizerKennedy! 21:39, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
Yea, it pretty much covers all the Phantom Ganons and Dark Links that ever existed. I just like this picture better. --God Of Thunder!!! 23:17, 14 July 2008 (UTC):
