Would Link's Armor actually protect him?

In The Legend of Zelda, the player character of Link can take a lot of damage. Being frozen solid, burning in fire or lava, surviving numerous types of melee weapons. The only armor he bears is a cloth tunic, with a chain-mail suit underneath and some pieces leather armor. If Link were in another game, how long would his green tunic last before he had to upgrade his armor?

  • This argument would mean little to nothing in a video game world where the female characters' armor consists of next to nothing, so it would probably be best to look at games with armor stats or ranks of armor. Is there a Nintendo game of this sort that could be looked at comparatively or would someone need to venture into other consoles and game types to analyze Link's armor? – Slaidey 7 years ago
