Basically I'm asking who is the Link of Golden Sun?

I want to say Isaac, but why isn't he playable in every game?

Alex is a main character, in fact I always thought he was the big bad, the Ganondorf of Golden Sun, but I've been hearing he might not be a bad guy at all.

What's going on, who's the main character?

Isaac

Central Character (the guy you control) in GS, a Main character (main characters are playable characters only, not counting the one you control) in GS2, Minor role in GS3

If we give each character points for types of appearances (5+ Central, 3+ Main, 2+ Important, 1+ Minor):

(Chars in at least 2 games):
Isaac: 9
Alex: 6
Felix: 7
Garet: 7
Kraden: 6
Eoleo: 4
Jenna: 5
Mia: 6
Ivan: 6
Piers: 3
Sheba: 5
Briggs: 2
The Wise One: 4
Hama: 3
Feizhi: 2
Tret: 3

If it's Isaac then why not just have him playable in all Golden Sun games?

To me the only game he was playable the way he should be was Broken Seal, sure he was playable in Lost Age, but Feelix had to be the leader, which imo Isaac should have took over following the Jupiter Lighthouse event.

In Dark Dawn he wasn't playable at all, and at the beginning the game would troll you with him in the party, but he just sat there and did nothing as if Matthew and Karis were the only characters there.

Um, not every series has a single character who's playable in all of them.  In fact, it's more common - especially in RPGs - for the opposite to be the case.

Isaac, then Felix, then Matt.  We have no "central character" - that person's different in each game for GS, much like in Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, or Suikoden.

So I should look at it kind of like Fire Emblem, right?

Example:

Marth, Ike, Roy, Chrom, all main characters in different FE games.

Or like how all Links are not the same guy considering every Link is a different Link in a different timeline.

Or how we are always playing as a different Pokémon Trainer.

You make very little sense.  First, you ask "who is the link of golden sun", making your argument that one guy is always the hero.  Then you turn around and say that like Link, it's not the same guy.

Look, could you do me a favor?  When you decide to not make any sense, could you at least be consistent in the nonsense you post?  I'm getting tired of these headaches, and it'd really help.

The main characters of Golden Sun and LoZ have one thing in common

The main characters have a basic characteristic

GS - All Venus adepts

LoZ - Same green hat and name

Incorrect.  The hat has changed many times over the years. :P

Could be.

When I saw the topic title, I was like "Oh, this should be interesting," but when I read "Who is the Link of Golden Sun?" I honestly lost interest.

Gee I wonder why, maybe I should of said Mario because allow me to answer that question, Isaac is the Mario of the Golden Sun series, Felix is like the Luigi of the series.

I always felt maybe the Proxians like the Koopas Mario and Luigi battle, but like Bowser sometimes in Mario games, I feel we could see a good Proxian, much like how we saw Bowser help Mario on some occasions, especially considering we have a new enemy with the mysterious High Emperor, in whom is still at large and we have no clue who he is.

Alex is kind of like the Wario of Golden Sun, remains Anti-Hero the entire time, although to me he's more of a cross between Wario and Magus from Chrono Trigger.

If Jenna is like Peach due to Daisy and then if Sheba is matched with Felix, that probably makes her the Daisy of the series, then Mia is like the Rosalina.

Non-Adepts are like Toads of the Mushroom Kingdom.

Know what, its Isaac hands down, therefore he needs to be brought back along with Garet, Ivan and Mia for Golden Sun 4 as the main protagonists, screw Matthew's team
