Princess Zelda is the recurring namesake of the The Legend of Zelda series of video games. Throughout the history of the series, a Zelda (or an alter-ego of one) has consistently appeared as the princess of Hyrule. The first "Zelda" documented in the history of Hyrule was the Zelda from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. This Zelda, born as a Hylian, was the mortal incarnation of the Goddess Hylia. The women in her bloodline would all be named "Zelda" through tradition (and later law), and would become the crown princess of Hyrule.
Several princesses within the bloodline are also the possessor of the Triforce of Wisdom, imbued with the essence of the Goddess Nayru. The essence of Nayru affords each Zelda divine wisdom, allowing them to discern the wisest decisions, especially in situations concerning the welfare of Hyrule. It grants them a myriad of mystical abilities, including the ability to heal others, though there is a possibility that this could also be an effect of their bloodline passing down Hylia's own powers and, later, the Light Force.
Zelda makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Strife as a default character. Like in Super Smash Bros. 4, Zelda does not have the ability to transform into Sheik, who also makes a reappearance as a standalone playable character. Her moveset is largely the same, retaining the Nayru's Love, Farore's Wind, and Din's Fire special attacks she has had since Melee, and the Phantom Slash attack from Super Smash Bros. 4.
After appearing in Hyrule Warriors, Princess Zelda makes a reappearance in Hyrule Warriors II. Like before, she wields the Rapier, Baton, and Dominion Rod weapons. Scanning her amiibo will also unlock the new Lantern weapon for Zelda, which is of the Fire element.
