Throughout the Zelda series, Link has often had a companion character that follows him on his journey and helps him through exposition, hints, and even additions to the gameplay. By being the one character that's always alongside Link, they're also the character that gets the most time to shine (apart from Link himself obviously).

The question is, which one is your favourite?

Note: If I have missed one, please let me know so I can add them to the poll ASAP

No Linebeck?

Because my answer is Linebeck.

Does he count? I thought Ciela was the companion character in Phantom Hourglass (I've never actually played Phantom Hourglass) and Linebeck was just a major supporting character. If he counts, then yeah; I'll include him.

I'd say both Linebeck and Ciela count.  Both stick with Link all game and travel with him, though Linebeck stays by his ship while you're on land.  

But yeah, Linebeck's one of my favorite Zelda characters in general and easily my favorite of who I'd count as companions.

Okay then. If I were to disqualify Linebeck for staying on the boat, then I'd have to also disqualify the King of Red Lions for obvious reasons. 

I'll add Linebeck right away.

Midna is my favorite companion hands down. She easily the most likable character in the entire game, but lets be honest, when it comes to Twilight Princess there's not much competition against Midna since she got plenty of screen time compared to most.

I just realized; I forgot to say my favourite.

It was a very difficult decision for me. Midna's great because of her personality, The King of Red Lions made me cry (and if you've seen the ending of The Wind Waker, you know why), but; I have to go with Spirit Zelda. 

Gameplay-wise. the fact that the player can directly control her and she's incredibly versatile in how she can help Link, from distracting guards/Phantoms, blocking attacks, helping Link across lava, and even fighting enemies alongside Link, really sets her apart from the rest in that, gameplay-wise, she's far more than an item or mode of transport: she really is a partner. 

Character-wise, well; she's just a fantastic character. She's a great blend of the typical young Zelda and the Tetra Zelda in terms of personality, she undergoes some good character development, and her interactions with everyone throughout the game are great; especially with Link. The light-hearted buddy-duo dynamic they have is fantastic. The word I've been avoiding is adorable, but that's exactly what they are. Just look:

And this isn't even scratching the surface.

Ezlo is my favorite as a character, he is so funny! And his history is so touching and sad.

Spoiler

All he wanted to do was help the humans with his creation, the Magic Cap, which could grant any wish. But it ended up in the wrong hands (Vaati's) and he blames no one but himself as he desperately goes out to try stopping Vaati even after he'd been transformed into a cap. It's great that he finally gets peace when the Magic Cap is used by Zelda to undo all the damage Vaati did.

But Spirit Tracks Zelda is definitely the most useful in terms of gameplay. You basically can play as her.

I'm not sure in terms of gameplay, but Midna overall so I voted for her on both. Bring back the twili!

If you don't pick Midna you're wrong.

Joking, but really, as much as I love all the companions Midna is by far my favorite, especially as a character. If Zelda is a companion (or playable, even better) in BotW 2 we'll see if my opinion changes.

Hey, guys; there's something wrong that I just noticed; the poll says "21 members have voted" but there are only 20 votes being shown. We're missing one vote.

Would really love to vote for the Sheikah Slate since it doesn't interrupt the game all the time.
Gonna vote for Navi then since she was also very restrained.
