Heron of Time Link, especially if he's got the Fierce Deity mask to hand.
The hero of Winds also has magic armor but his version consumes magic over time but still eats rupees in place of damage. He also has the Phantom Sword which can stop time for a brief moment if combined with a phantom sphere for fuel.
If it's a fully decked out Link operating at their prime, then I see only two real contenders.
BotW Link can use the upgraded stasis to stop living beings in their tracks, walk up, and stab them. Every Link is effectively dead before they can react in any meaningful way. Even if the Hero of Time were to put on the Fierce Deity Mask in time, I don't see any reason that stasis+ would do the exact same thing. The Fierce Deity is still capable of being damaged, and we don't see anything in MM to indicate that it's more physically durable than Link himself.
The Hero of Time is the only other contender. Assuming an adult Link with all the gear he acquired throughout his time in Hyrule, his biggest advantage is probably the the Golden Gauntlets. We've seen Link use them to perform numerous (if repetitive) feats of superhuman strength, but we've never actually seen them used on a living being. If they offered any level of striking power comparable to their lifting power, one hit would probably be enough to pulverize BotW Link's insides.
Assuming, of course, that the Hero of Time is even given the opportunity to strike.
EDIT: I neglected to bring up the killing power of Ancient Arrows. Ancient Arrows kill almost every enemy in a single hit, Lynels included. They destroy Guardians with a single direct hit to the eyeball, and deal significant damage to bosses. The Hero of Time isn't exactly a Hinox or a Ganon, so I don't see him surviving more than one direct hit.
eh, remember that even stasis+ only works on smaller enemies, and even then only for an incredibly brief amount of time. Not only do I think that HoT would be immune to it, but even if it did work wild wouldn’t have enough time to really do anything with it. It’s not like wind who can freeze literally everything for around 7-10 seconds.
you have a point with the ancient arrows, but these aren’t the first epic power arrows ever, multiple links have access to light arrows, and others have access to silver arrows. Also remember that most links have methods to block these arrows, be it a magic shield, armor, or entire force field.
Wild is a strong contender, for sure, but that’s mainly due to his sheer strength and toughness. I think his best bet in winning a fight with the other links is trying to out-last them with his superior armor and survival skills. I don’t think that’s enough to last against time, wind, and legend.
I might come back with a tier list eventually
Stasis+ actually works on every enemy, including Ganon's first form. If it works on him, I see no reason it wouldn't work on the other Links. And since smaller enemies are affected the most by stasis+, the average size of the different Links suggests it would probably work on them about as long as it does a bokoblin. That's more than enough time for BotW Link to close the distance and deliver a fatal blow. And while magic armor is definitely a threat, all Link needs to do is stall and wait it out until it drains either the other Link's magic or his wallet.
Light Arrows are definitely a big threat, but I think a a prepared Link could safely deflect them, since he already shown himself capable of deflecting other suck projectiles. Given that BotW Link is very capable of deflecting blows from the likes of Ganon (a skill the other Links have not yet demonstrated), I think it gives him a key advantage when dealing with their projectiles.
I don’t think the size determines the amount of time stasis can hold a target, but rather the strength of the target. Remember that stasis will freeze any inanimate object for the same amount of time no matter the size, and since any creature is stronger than an inanimate object it automatically freezes for a shorter amount of time. I believe that the links will be frozen for much shorter than a mere bokoblin.
another point I forgot to mention: stasis only works on one enemy at a time. If this were a one-on-one fight then stasis would be fine, but since most of us seem to agree that this is a free for all then stasis isn’t going to be much help, especially since it has a 10 second recharge time. I definitely think that winds has the better time stop ability here.
It is true that wild can block just about any projectile, but once again only one at a time. If any of the links tried to gang up on him he’s through. Sure Nauru’s love and the magic shields can run out, but so can wilds shields. Granted the amount of shields he can carry is pretty high, but theyre not impervious. Any electric or fire based attack and all of his protection is gone. If we’re equating light arrows to ancient arrows, I’m pretty sure wind, time, minish, and legend can block them with mirror shields. Also SS link can deflect attacks that strong as well.
I think that a battle royale scenario with all the Links effectively randomizes a possible victor. Any Link could take advantage of any other moment to eliminate a more powerful version. And while I think the Mirror Shield would very much help the Link deflect energy projectiles, I don't think it would do much beyond block arrows. That might mitigate its usefulness. While it would certainly deflect BotW Link's Light Arrows, it wouldn't do as well against those used by OoT Link, whose Light Arrows are still solid projectiles.
I do think the fights work better if they're one on one brawls. Those lend themselves better to each Link's strengths.
Additionally, I do think it's hard to factor in how long stasis+ would hold Link based on strength. I'd probably equate a Link to being about as strong as a blue or grey bokoblin, and they're capable of dealing significantly more damage than (gameplay-wise) anything the other Links have fought. I'd guess stasis+ would probably stop Link for about as long as it stops a bokoblin or a moblin.
