W. Link, also known as Wolf Link,[1] is a smug wolf villager in Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo. He is based on Wolf Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. His birthday is the same as the Japanese release date for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

W. Link can only move to the player's town if either the Link (Super Smash Bros.), Zelda (Super Smash Bros.), Wolf Link (Twilight Princess), Archer Link (Breath of the Wild), Link (Skyward Sword), Link (Twilight Princess), Young Link (Super Smash Bros.), Link (Link's Awakening), or Link (Tears of the Kingdom) amiibo is scanned and he is invited to move in from the campground. He cannot be asked to move in from another player's town or campground.



W. Link is a grayish-green wolf with blue eyes, white paws, white feet, and a black nose. His muzzle is mostly white, but his nasal ridge is grayish-green like the rest of his fur. There are tan vertical patches of fur on the sides of his head, and the tip of his tail is white. He has a uniquely-shaped white symbol on his forehead that resembles a jagged upside-down fish hook with a small circle in the center of the loop. On either side of the symbol are sharp thin white eyebrows with several ridges each. He wears a silver-lined gray bracelet that resembles a prison shackle on his left paw. W. Link is stylized after Wolf Link from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. His initial outfit is the Wolf Link outfit, which has the appearance of ruffled gray-green fur.


Below is a brief description of the smug personality. For more information, click here.

W. Link is a smug villager, meaning he will act very polite and very gentleman like. He will also flirt with the player, regardless of gender. He will easily get along with other neighbors, and seems to be a mix between all male villagers.

Villager information[edit]

In Welcome amiibo[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo, W. Link's skill of "howling" refers to the howling mechanic that Link utilizes while in wolf form in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, in order to activate the Howling Stones and in order to use both Hawk Grass and Horse Grass. His goal of "normal boy" refers to one of Link's initial goals in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which is to return to human form after being transformed into a wolf due to the Twilight engulfing Hyrule. W. Link's favorite color is green, a reference to the green tunic that Link wears in most games in The Legend of Zelda series.
