    Link's hookshot from the Legend of Zelda is one of the coolest items in all of gaming. Who WOULDN'T want to fire a grappling hook at any object and instantly get reeled back in. It's AWESOME and is definitely my favorite item from any video game ever. But is it really as awesome as we all think? Is the hookshot in Link's pack of items truly the deadliest thing in the whole Legend of Zelda franchise?

    Well to be fair link isn't human so we can't really figure out if his bones are the same as human bones. Maybe they can resist being pulled like that without breaking

    I would assume that the chain is probably aluminum as it doesn't need to remain sharp and isn't hitting things all the time. It would reduce the weight significantly
