Suggested by Random Link is a skilled sword fighter and you could make the strong case that his pure swordsmanship may be even greater than Hiei’s. While that gives Link a slight advantage, Hiei is physically far superior. He will be able to speed blitz Link and exploit that difference. Link has a lot of gadgets, but they won’t be enough to protect him from Hiei’s vicious onslaught of attacks. Hiei wins.
