Doc Bandam


The Potion Master






Doc Bandam is a character from The Wind Waker who resides on Windfall Island.


Doc Bandam operates the Chu Jelly Juice Shop on Windfall Island, which sells a variety of potions. He descrbes his potions as being TOO good and claims they are absolutely incredible.[1] Doc will explain to Link what Chu Jelly is, describing it as a robustly nourishing element. A mystical substance that is good for the body and mind.[2] It is the key ingredient to making the most effective potions around. Doc will offer to sell Link a potion, but he must have an Empty Bottle.[3][4]

At first, his Potion Shop only sells Red Potion made from Red Chu Jelly, but if Link brings him 5 globs of Green Chu Jelly, he expands his product lineup and sells Green Potion as well, and he also gives Link a free sample. Similarly, when he obtains 15 globs of Blue Chu Jelly, he begins to sell Blue Potion as well. As before, Link gets a free sample.

While Doc will sell Red Potion for 20 Rupees, Link can also bring him regular red Chu Jelly. If Link gives him five jelly, he'll give Link a free serving, which will fill up a bottle.[5] He further tells Link that at any point, he can bring him five glops of jelly to get another free potion.[6]

He researches ChuChus most of his days in his shop, but frequently visits the neighboring Pawprint Isle to collect Chu Jelly in order to make his potions.

  1. "Hello, hello, and hello! You are standing in the one and only Chu Jelly Juice Shop! You must have heard! Our potions are the best! I'm telling you! They're TOO good, in fact! ...They're absolutely incredible!" — Doc Bandam, The Wind Waker.
  2. "Hrm...? What's that? What's Chu Jelly, you ask, looking somewhat bewildered? Oh, sir! You simply must be joking! You don't know what Chu Jelly is? Well, just ask yourself this, good sir! What is a robustly nourishing element? What is a mystical substance that is good for the body and mind? Ask yourself!! The words Chu Jelly roar out in answer to these questions, proclaiming themselves to be true! ...Why, it is the key ingredient in the most effective potions around!" — Doc Bandam, The Wind Waker.
  3. "All you have to do is bring an empty bottle to my little juice shop here, and I'll let you have a taste. Which begs the question...sir, do YOU have an empty bottle?" — Doc Bandam, The Wind Waker.
  4. "Hello, hello, and hello again! This is the Chu Jelly Juice Shop! We use only 100% natural Chu Jelly here, I assure you!" — Doc Bandam, The Wind Waker.
  5. "Gasp! Is that...? Could it possibly be?!? Did you, by chance, bring me Chu Jelly?!? It's quite clever of you to be bringing such quality ingredients to me! I'll take five of them, if you can spare them! And to thank you, I'll give you one free serving! Not a bad deal, no sir." — Doc Bandam, The Wind Waker.
  6. "For every five glops of Chu Jelly you bring me, I'll give you one free potion. Come back after you collect more of that wonderful, gooey, potion-making stuff!" — Doc Bandam, The Wind Waker.
