Mesa is a young man living on Outset Island in The Wind Waker.

Overview

Mesa spends all day cutting the grass in front of his house. However, the grass seems to grow rapidly, covering his vegetable patch. The weeds are continiously growing, so Mesa can be seen perpetually cutting it for much of the year.[1][2] Early in the game, Mesa will wish Link a happy birthday, citing how time just seems to pass by so quickly. Mesa lives by himself, but he is currently looking for a wife.[3]

Mesa encourages Link to help him try cutting the grass, saying that it is quite suprising what some people accidentally drop.[4] Although Link will need to have something to cut the grass with, such as a sword.[5][6] After acquiring the Hero's Sword, Mesa will ask Link for a favor, if he can use the sword to cut the grass for him.[7]

After the monsters come to Outset Island, his sleeping schedule gets messed up, and he sleeps during the day and is awake at night.[8][9] Mesa gives Link a hint that he saw a tall girl who glowed like a Fairy travel into the Forest of Fairies at the top of Outset Island. She then vanished into a rock.[10][11] This is the location of the Great Fairy Fountain on Outset Island, which will grant Link a Wallet Upgrade.

Mesa dresses in orange and is the only villager to live on the western side of the island. There is also a secret room in his house that leads through a tunnel to twenty Rupees.

Why, I swear I just cut the grass in this field the other day, but look at how tall it's gotten already..." — Mesa, The Wind Waker.

  4. "Sometimes you can find things in the grass when you cut it, so it isn't always a thankless chore! It pays, buddy!" — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  5. "Say, do you want to try cutting it, [Link]? You'd be surprised at the things people drop in the grass. It's fun! It's like a treasure hunt. Except...you're gonna need some kind of grass-cutting tool if you want to cut the grass. That's just common sense, buddy." — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  6. "Cutting grass is hard work, but it pays off! People leave the darnedest things in the grass, so if you go to the trouble of cutting it, you get to keep whatever you find." — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  7. "Oh, say! That's a fine sword you have there, buddy! Just look at that thing! You know, you'd be doing me a big favor if you'd cut this here grass for me." — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  8. "Eh? [Link]? Is that you, [Link]? Whoa. You kind of startled me there, buddy. I thought more of those monsters had come to harass me. I tell you, there have been a lot of strange things going on here at night lately. I haven't gotten a good night's sleep in ages because of it! And I love sleep!" — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  9. "There have been strange things going on at night, I tell you! It's turned my whole schedule upside-down. Now I'm up all night and asleep in bed all day... Awww... I just want to cut the grass..." — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  10. "In fact, I saw something really odd just a little while ago. Of course, this was back before the bridge was destroyed... It was up in the Fairy Woods, near the old dried-up fountain. I saw this tall girl who glowed like a fairy, which was odd enough, but then she vanished into that rock... Really! I saw it with my own eyes!" — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
  11. "I wonder what that was all about... That fairy-looking girl I saw up there by the big stone..." — Mesa, The Wind Waker.
