Growler is a character that appears within The Minish Cap. Growler is a brown dog that resides in Hyrule Town and can be seen at the west end of town. Early in the game Growler acts as a barrier, preventing Link from accessing the southwest corner of the town. If Link tries to talk to Growler while Link is in his regular form, Growler will just bark at him.[1]

When Link is in Minish form, he can talk to Growler and he apologizes for being in your way, stating that he just wanted attention.[2] From this point onward, Growler will now move, so Link can reach the southwest part of town even in his regular form. Growler does think that all the residents of the town are nice people.[3]

Link is able to fuse Green Kinstones at various points in the game with Growler.[4] As it is a Green Kinstone fusion, it is not set to a specific treasure chest, but instead, one of the many possible treasure chests. There is one random Red Kinstone within the game that opens up a location in the Hyrule Castle Garden leading to a Piece of Heart, as well as a random Blue Kinstone that opens up a tree in North Hyrule Field leading to a Fairy Fountain. Growler is one of the many characters in which Link can make this Kinstone fusion with.

  3. "Everyone in this town is really nice." — Growler, The Minish Cap.
  4. "Rarf! Arf arf! You want to fuse Kinstones? Rarf arf!" — Growler, The Minish Cap.
