The Master Cycle is one of Link's available vehicles included in the The Legend of Zelda X Mario Kart 8 DLC pack for Mario Kart 8. It is a motorcycle based and named off the signature sword Link wields in his series of video games, the Master Sword. The side of the motorcycle features his signature shield, the Hylian Shield, and the rims of the wheels have a Triforce drawn on. The artwork design for Link riding the Master Cycle is drawn in the same style as artwork from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, rather than 3D renders like the rest of the Mario Kart 8 characters. As stated by
