Time jades, and personally I am of the belief that Link
from Majora's Mask would be the scariest being of all time. Days, weeks, months, MILLENIA for a child honing his skills, learning, repeatedly dulled to killing everything over and over again
faster and faster to achieve his goals. Eventually, in searching for new ways to achieve the end of his time loop, he'd experiment with new methods. Get sick of talking to the same simple villager who says the same thing hundreds of thousands of times
. Is it patience, or impatience? Or both, for different things? In his decline into madness, he may even artificially extend his time loop to simply learn more and more and perfect his arts after he's capable of ending it all.
When he emerges, he is old. He is powerful. He is the Master, and the young little maggots of Hyrule, like Ganon for instance, are powerless to stop him from whatever he so desires.
