The Lakeside Item Seller is a character in A Link Between Worlds. He is the owner of the Lorulean Lakeside Item Shop and is a part of the Masked Followers. He sells a Bee for 88 Rupees,[1] a Golden Bee for 9999 Rupees,[2] a Fairy for 77 Rupees,[3] and a shield for 50 Rupees.[4]

When Link tries to speak with him, he first says hello and welcomes him into his shop.[5] If spoken to again, the seller informs him how some people believe that chanting the words "Ay lliw nihtemos yub" is the key to being saved.[6] He asks what it saves people from and sarcastically answers with high prices.[7] However, he thinks it is a catchy phrase and hopes it will transport him to another world if he says it enough.[8] He changes the topic and asks Link if he has heard of the Maiamais, creatures that can travel between worlds.[9] He begins to say that until he can hitch a ride on one of the Maiamais before stopping.[10] He then chants "Ay lliw nihtemos yub..." twice and ends the conversation.[11]

When Link declines purchasing an item, the Lakeside Item Seller chants the words "...Ay lliw nihtemos yub..." like mentioned before.[12] This is a reference to the Merchant's "BUY SOMETHIN' WILL YA" from The Legend of Zelda but is instead reversed.[13]
