Pink to the Past by pizza-supper Pink to the Past by pizza-supper
In A Link to the Past, due to the limited color palette of the SNES, Link's hair was shown as pink. (In the artwork it was shown as brown, though)

I always thought this was hilarious. Link usually has brown or blonde hair...but PINK? really? XD

and yes, it IS pink, not purple. I know because I copied the color from Link's sprite.

Link and background (c) Nintendo
Art (c) Moi
I DID NOT DRAW THE BACKGROUND

I read somewhere that it wasn't due to a limited palette, but rather because one of the programmers' kids' (or something) favorite color was pink.

I really hated ALttP's art style. It was way too cartoony for me.

This didn't help.
