Sheik, Zelda's alter ego in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, has been confirmed as a playable character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
For those who can't remember (like me - Zeldapedia is lifesaver sometimes) Zelda passed herself off as a male Sheikah in the N64 classic.
Sheik joins an already eclectic cast of characters from a game that earned a perfect score from Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, making it just the 7th game to earn such an accolade in the history of the mag.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Zelda can transform in Sheik by triggering her down move. With Needle Storm, Chain and Vanish powers, she sounds like she can hold her own, although we have no idea what any of them do.
Whether Sheik is just Zelda in disguise or in fact the transformation of Zelda into a man is debated in fan circles.
The screenshots of the Smash Bros version imply Sheik is all woman, but apparently Smash Bros isn't canon in the Zelda universe, so the debate shall continue alongside other important matters like how tall Bowser is and whether Luigi is gay.
