Tingle Statues are golden statues formed into the shape of Tingle that are found hidden in five of the main dungeons of the games The Wind Waker and The Wind Waker HD. These items are optional and are not required to beat the game.
The way Tingle Statues are found slightly differs between the two games, but in both they are essential to revealing locations of where 100 Rupees reappear constantly. In addition to this, Link is paid 50 Rupees for each one that is found and 500 Rupees if the entire set has been recovered.
In The Wind Waker HD, the Tingle Statues must be obtained in order to find Knuckle, one of Tingle's younger brothers. This requirement is not in the original version. In that version he can be found with the Tingle Tuner on Outset Island.
In the Nintendo GameCube version of The Wind Waker, the chests containing the statues are found with the Tingle Tuner. In order to make them visible, Link must pay Tingle to use a Tingle Bomb on the location where the chest is located. In the Wii U version, this is changed to make it that a regular bomb will reveal the chest instead. The locations of the chests remain the same in both versions.
