His name is Gondo, and he is a big-
Gondo is a character in Skyward Sword. He is the owner of the Scrap Shop in the Bazaar. He can repair Link's Shield and upgrade Link's items using the various Treasures he has collected. Judging by the wrench on his family or personal crest, this man is a mechanic by trade.
Gondo is the owner of Scrapper, and is often ridiculed by the citizens of Skyloft for believing that Scrapper could be fixed. He tries to fix said robot, but unfortunately to not avail due to the lack of necessary materials. Link, however, provides Gondo with the oils of an Ancient Flower, which in turn ables Gondo to fix Scrapper. Due to Link's assistance in reviving Scrapper, he is permitted to use Scrapper's abilities at his own will.
Gondo lives with his mother, and spends most of his time building things and trying to fix Scrapper. His mother dislikes Gondo's obsession with fixing Scrapper and engineering, and complains about it, and is often seen washing Gonzo's clothes.
Gondo could be seen at his shop during day time. Additionally, it is the location of Goddess Chest #19.

- ↑ "If you have any doubts about the durability of your shield, I suggest you have it examined at the Scrap Shop. Provided you take good Gondo there the necessary treasures and the like, he will happily upgrade your items!" — Rupin, Skyward Sword.
- ↑ "...Hang on. Come to think of it, Gondo at the Scrap Shop told me that someone in his family once used a flying robot to haul junk back from beneath the clouds. But we're talking about a tale that's been passed down over a lot of years, so I wouldn't put much stock in it." — Jakamar, Skyward Sword.
- ↑ "This robot was handed down among three generations of Scrap Shop proprietors. It is currently damaged and not functional. The current Scrap Shop owner, Gondo, has been trying to fix it, but he lacks the necessary materials." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
- ↑ "But old Gramps did tell me this: you can get him working again with the extract from an Ancient Flower. It's like oil to this guy. But I've never even heard of, much less seen, any such thing!
- Take mine! :Me neither." — Gondo, Skyward Sword.
- ↑ "So this is an Ancient Flower?! I can feel some slick, oily stuff coming out of its stem! Great, with this we can fix Scrapper! ...Wait right here! I'll have him up and running in no time!" — Gondo, Skyward Sword.
- ↑ "Master, you are permitted to use the repaired robot at your discretion." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
- ↑ "In his spare time, he attempts to repair an ancient robot he inherited from his grandfather. He has yet to get it functioning again." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
