Dampé's Grave

Dampé's Grave is a location in Ocarina of Time.

It is found beneath the leftmost gravestone with flowers on the left side of Kakariko Village Graveyard. Link must acquire the Hookshot here in order to reach the Forest Temple. Inside the grave is Dampé, who challenges Link to a race.[1] He guides Link through the hallways while occasionally dropping flames on the floor, which help him if he loses track of where Dampé went, but also damage him if he runs into them. If Link successfully follows him to the end, he will let him open his Treasure Chest, which contains the Hookshot.[2] If Link races Dampé again and reaches the finish line under one minute, Dampé will reward him with a Piece of Heart.

Dampé's Grave leads to the Windmill, which Link enters after acquiring the Hookshot.



  1. "Heh heh heh, young man! Are you fast on your feet? I may not look like it, but I'm confident in my speed! Let's have a race! Follow me if you dare!" — Dampé, Ocarina of Time.
  2. "Hehehe, young man... You were very quick to be able to keep up with me! Hehehe! As a reward, I'm going to give you my treasure. It's called the Hookshot! Its spring-loaded chain will pull you to any spot where its hook sticks. Doesn't that sound cool? I'm sure it will help you! I live here now, so come back again sometime. I'll give you something cool! One more thing! Be careful on your way back! Heheheh...." — Dampé, Ocarina of Time.
