When he is sent out he will cowardly start running away from characters dropping Smash Bros. items for characters to use. However if the characters drop or throw away the items, his pet bird Sheerow will take the items back.
At the beginning of the game Ravio gives Classic Link the bracelet that will eventually allow him to turn into a drawing and merge within walls. He is Classic Link's Lorulian counterpart. His outfit is very similar to Nabbit's from Mario and pays homage to A Link to The Past where the Classic Link in that game became a bunny in the Dark World until he obtained the Moon Pearl.
