4. The King of Red Lions, from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

The King of Red Lions serves as Link’s transport in The Wind Waker, enabling him journey across the often treacherous Great Sea. This is no ordinary boat though, (I don’t think anything on this list can be described as ordinary) as he is also sentient, and is housing the spirit of King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule. After flooding Hyrule, the King turns into a boat, thereby saving himself. This may seem selfish, but he actually did so by order of the Goddesses, so that he could search for the Hero of the Winds, in order to banish Ganondorf once and for all.

Unlike Link’s other sidekicks (Navi, Ezlo, and Fi to name but a few), the King of Red Lions was pretty much alright, and didn’t annoy the Hell out of you from the get go. By the end of the game, it’s fair to say that Link may even have begun to see him as a father figure. Plus, he served the roles as both vehicle and companion, something only Link’s Loftwing sort of lived up to, though that wasn’t the same, as it couldn’t talk.

Though only really capable of realistically holding one person, this boat did have the capability to accessorise, with cannon and grapple functions. It’s a shame that he didn’t make an appearance in any other games, though there was an impostor in Phantom Hourglass, going by the name of… Prince of Red Lions.
