The Oracle games are notable for featuring three animal companions with very different special abilities that shape the gameplay. Dimitri is a Dodongo capable of swimming up waterfalls and against strong river currents; Moosh is a flying bear that can hover in the air for quite some time, allowing Link to cross holes in the land safely; and Ricky is a boxing kangaroo that can jump short distances and scale walls with Link in his pouch.

Depending on how the player navigates the world, any one of these companions can be called with a special flute to assist Link in his adventure. My personal favorite is definitely Moosh. He’s an adorable flying bear trying his very best, but on top of that, his utility is really handy as well. I would love more unique animal companions like these three in future Zelda games. Who is your favorite animal companion? Let us know in the comments!
