A Link to the Past
Kiki is a talking Monkey that has appeared in two The Legend of Zelda games to date: A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening.
A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, Link encounters Kiki while journeying through the Dark Palace Grounds in search of the Dark Palace. Link finds Kiki within the garden, at which point Kiki begins to follow Link. Kiki loves Rupees and initially asks Link if he can spare 10 Rupees. If Link declines to give Kiki the rupees, Kiki says that he has no reason to talk to Link anyway and subsequently stops following him and jumps back into the garden. If Link agrees to give Kiki the Rupees, the monkey continues to follow him.
While following Link, if Link takes any damage at all, Kiki immediately runs off back to the garden. If Link successfully makes it to the entrance of the Dark Palace, Kiki offers to open the entrance to the Dark Palace in exchange for 100 Rupees. If Link declines, Kiki will, once again, run off, challenging Link to open it himself. However, if Link accepts, Kiki jumps on top of the statues and opens the entrance to the first dungeon within the Dark World.
In Link's Awakening, Kiki is part of the long Trading Sequence featured in the game. Link can give Kiki Bananas, and in return Kiki calls his monkey friends and builds a bridge that allows Link to reach Kanalet Castle. After the bridge is complete, Kiki and his friends leave, but not before leaving a Stick on the bridge. This Stick can be used to continue the Trading Sequence.
- In Link's Awakening, when BowWow is following Link around, he can take him to Kiki and they will start to fight. The fight always ends in Kiki running away.
