8) Midna

Personally, I loved Twilight Princess. It still holds up as one of the more original Zelda games in my book. But half of the experience would be lost for me if Link’s new sarcastic sidekick was removed from the game. Midna is Twilight Princess, both literally and figuratively. The entire game, for the first time in the series, revolved solely around the interactions of the hero and his sidekick. Let’s be honest, Navi was not exactly what you’d consider an interesting character. She was more like a nagging spouse constantly dropping “Hey! Listen!” bombs, until your head explodes. And Navi never really changes throughout the story, unlike Midna. Link and Midna’s relationship had a natural progression from a bizarre alliance to partnership, and finally to a romance of sorts.  She did lose some of her antihero characteristics during their journey, but I still find her one of the most memorable “darker” characters in a Nintendo game.
