Kara Kara Bazaar


Benja is a character in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Benja is the leader of a group of merchants, along with his friend Robsten, who want to do business in Gerudo Town.[1] However, since he is a male, he cannot seem to gain access to Gerudo Town. He can be found outside the town's main gate, near the Daqo Chisay Shrine.

He appears to be spying in on Gerudo Town, although he gets rather defensive when Link hurls that acquisition at him. Instead, he claims that he is simply doing research, trying to find a way into the town.[2][3]

Forbidden City Entry

Main article: Forbidden City Entry

After talking to Benja, Link will hear that Benja might have found a way to slip his way into Gerudo Town. He claims that a man was able to infiltrate the town. This many frequently travels between Gerudo Town and Kara Kara Bazaar to the east[4][5][6] This will begin the Forbidden City Entry main quest.

After acquiring the Gerudo Clothes, Link can speak with Benja while wearing them. Benja seems to have an attraction to Link and despite their conversation being nearly the same as before, Benja doesn't realize that it is Link.[7][8]

Tears of the Kingdom

Benja can be found at the Kara Kara Bazaar alongside Phonthos and Robsten. The three are examing the Sand Shroud that is engulfing Gerudo Desert, preventing anybody from reaching Gerudo Town.


  1. Oh, I was so focused just now... Do you have business with me? - Benja
  2. What?! N-no! I'm not a spy! I'm a merchant! I may not look like it, but I'm actually the leader of a caravan! I've traveled all the way here, but this town doesn't allow men to go in. So...that's why I...had - Benja
  3. It's research! RESEARCH! And think what you want, but I've finally found some key info on how to sneak into Gerudo Town! - Benja

I've been waiting here, trying to spot him as he travels! - Benja
