Papahl (Father)
Mamasha (Mother)

The Island Quadruplets are four children living in Mabe Village in Link's Awakening. They are the sons of Papahl and his wife Mamasha, and they are so similar to one another, that even Mamasha says she gets confused.[1] A lot of their comments pertain to the controls of the game, which they do not understand and, when questioned, they immediately say "I'm just a kid!" or something to that extent.[2][3][4][5]

Locations and Comments

First Quadruplet

The first quadruplet can be found outside of the Mabe Village Library, playing with a boy that looks just like the quadruplets, except his shirt is red in the DX remake. When Link completes Tail Cave, these two boys are the first to tell him that Madam MeowMeow's Chain Chomp, BowWow, has been kidnapped by Moblins.[6] He is also perplexed when Link tells him that he came from outside of Koholint Island, and he wonders where Marin is after she leaves to go to Animal Village.[7][8]

Second Quadruplet

The second quadruplet stays outside of the Trendy Game. He is extremely confused when Link asks him how long they have been living on the island.[9]

Third Quadruplet

The third quadruplet is near the Dream Shrine. He asks Link what he thinks about Marin, and quickly answers that he's "just a kid" when Link asks him in turn.[10] He also worries about Marin when she leaves, like the first quadruplet. Later, he mentions that there is supposedly a reward hidden within the shrine.[11]

Fourth Quadruplet

The fourth quadruplet is nowhere to be found early in the game. However, later he is seen by the statue of the Flying Rooster, in the center of the village. He will also comment on Marin's disappearance, and repeats what the second quadruplet said about how he does not know how long they have been living on the island.


  1. "Because they all look alike, even I am sometimes confused..." — Mamasha, Link's Awakening.
  2. "Hey, man! When you want to save just push all the Buttons at once! Uhh... Don't ask me what that means, I'm just a kid!" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  3. "Well, it seems that after you save, you will start at the last door you went through... I'm not really sure why that is 'cause I'm just a kid!" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  4. "I heard that you can press SELECT to look at the island map... But, I don't understand what they mean by that..." — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  5. "When you're running out of Hearts, you'd better enter a house or cave... Why? I have no idea, I'm just a kid!" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  6. "Hey buddy! It's serious! Yeah, really serious!! Yeah, it is! The Moblins came to the village! Yeah, that's right! A whole gang of Moblins! Then... It's for real! They all went to the house... Yeah, that house, and then they did something at Bow Wow's house!! It was a really bad scene, with the M-m-moblins! So, I mean, ahh! ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... It might be faster to find out for yourself what happened!" — Island Quadruplet and Friend, Link's Awakening.
  7. "Where are you from, brother? ...Outside the island? What is 'outside?' I've never thought about it..." — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  8. "Hunh?! Marin's not with you? What happened to her?" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  9. "Dude! You're asking me when we started to live on this island? What do you mean by 'when?' Whoa! The concept just makes my head hurt!" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  10. "Hey, dude! What do you think of Marin? Uhh... I don't know, I'm just a kid!" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
  11. "Hey hey, bro! About the Dream Shrine there... They say there's something good inside... ... I better not say anything else as I'm just a kid!" — Island Quadruplet, Link's Awakening.
