Ghost Ship
Boarding the Ghost Ship






The Ghost Ship is a legend, known for being behind the disappearances of several ships.[1] Link, Tetra, and her pirate crew are searching unknown waters hoping to cross paths with it. Tetra does not believe the rumors, thinking that it is merely a bunch of pirates, and hopes to expose them as frauds.[2] However, when they ultimately do find the Ghost Ship, Tetra believes that there may be treasure in it, so she hops on board.[3] A bolt of lightning strikes the mast of the Ghost Ship, and the pirates and Link are left stunned to hear Tetra's helpless shriek. Link attempts to go after her, but loses his grip and plunges into the waters below.

The first half of Link's quest in Phantom Hourglass is centered around tracking down the Ghost Ship in order to rescue Tetra. After Link gathers the Spirits of Power, Wisdom and Courage, he is able to seek out the Ghost Ship in the thick fog of the western half of the Northwestern Seas. After sneaking past monsters known as Reaplings, Link is taken on by the Cubus Sisters in a match of Dead Man's Volley. Link later discovers that the rumor is only to lure more victims into the trap and he finds Tetra turned to stone in the lower decks of the Ghost Ship with her life drained away.

A monster known as Bellum, who feeds on magic known as life force, is the mastermind behind the Ghost Ship. Oshus explains his involvement in the story. Link's final showdown with Bellum takes place on board the Ghost Ship. After facing him in the Temple of the Ocean King, Bellum possesses the ship, forcing Link to take it down with his cannon, and then Bellum possesses Linebeck, causing him and Link to fight amidst the Ghost Ship's remains.



  1. "Are you sure this is a good idea? What about all those ships that have gone missing? I say the Ghost Ship is behind all of it!" — Niko, Phantom Hourglass.
  2. "Don't be ridiculous. There's no such thing as a Ghost Ship! I bet it's just some pirates up to no good. I'll expose them as a bunch of frauds. And remind them that there are rules to being pirates! I doubt there really is an Ocean King anyway." — Tetra, Phantom Hourglass.
  3. "And you call yourself a pirate! It's just a ship. But it does look like it could be the Ghost Ship... There might even be a load of treasure on board! That's it. I'm gonna get to the bottom of this!" — Tetra, Phantom Hourglass.
