No one could have predicted how horny people would get for the shark man crown prince from Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.
Prince Sidon is Zora royalty, and you meet him as you head to their domain to take on the Divine Beast Vah Ruta. He’s generally affable and brave, and well liked by his people. There’s even a Prince Sidon fanclub in-game.
Even so, their enthusiasm is outmatched by the Prince Sidon fanclub IRL.
Lots of people ship Sidon with Link, who he encourages and cheers on throughout his quest. In fact, I’ve been seeing more fanart for the pair than Link with Zelda, who are the de-facto canon ship, or with Mipha, the Zora champion who explicitly wanted to marry him 100 years ago. There’s a part of me that has reservations about Link and Sidon—my coworker, Eric Van Allen from Compete, has a sister who is a marine biologist, and she notes that shark skin is actually very small teeth called denticles and at best that would chafe during intimate moments. But I have to admit, the fanart is really cute.
Some people just wanna fuck the shark. To them I say: go with God.
But even if you’re not into the shark with abs, the memes he’s generated are pretty funny.
