Miss Windfall Island






Minenco is a character in The Wind Waker who lives on Windfall Island.


Minenco is known on Windfall Island for being a very attractive woman. She was once dubbed Miss Windfall forty years ago.[1] No woman has managed to take that title from her. She is often bragging about her beauty and title, even asking Link how she looks.[2][3] During the day, she can be seen standing around just outside of the Chu Jelly Juice Shop. At night, she can occasionally be found in the Auction House, where she bids on Zunari's auctions.

Treasure Chart #33

Main article: Treasure Chart 33

After acquiring the Deluxe Picto Box, Link can speak with Minenco and she tells Link that he always shows off his pictures of her, as soon as he's taken them.[4] While not named directly, Minenco is referring to Lenzo. Link can take a pictograph of Minenco and then immediately show the picture to her. Minenco will comment about how stunning she looks and thanks Link for taking the picture.[5] She will reward Link with Treasure Chart 33. She comments that her son found the Treasure Chart and thinks that Link would like it.[6]

Putting the Rumors to Rest

Main article: Putting the Rumors to Rest

There is a rumor being spread by Vera and Pompie that Minenco is having a love affair with the photographer Lenzo.[7][8][9][10] After Link has activated the Windmill by changing the wind direction the north, and stepping on the switch located behind the Sinking Ships, he will be able to reach the upper balcony of Lenzo's House. If Link uses this hidden path, he can see Minenco and Lenzo talking about photography, and the photographs Lenzo takes of her.

Link can snap a picture of Lenzo and Minenco talking to each other. Minenco claims that she only came to his house so that Lenzo can take a pictograph of her exceptionally beautiful skin.[11] She tells Link that she's been a huge fan of pictographs for a long time now and doesn't want Link to take her presence at Lenzo's house the wrong way.[12]

Link can then show the pictograph of Lenzo and Minenco to Pompie and Vera.[13][14] After seeing the picture, the two admit that they were wrong about Lenzo having a girlfriend. Instead, it appears Lenzo and Minenco are just friends who share a hobby.[15] Pompie thanks Link and suggests they should stop spreading gossip like this.[16] Pompie will then give Link Treasure Chart 24.

Birthplace: Windfall Island
Favorite Thing: Pictographs

This former beauty became famous after being dubbed Miss Windfall Island...about forty years ago. There isn't a younger woman who could take that title away.



  1. "If you could indulge me for a moment, please admit that I am looking FINE! Why, looking this fine would have won me the Miss Windfall crown way back when! I'm STILL looking better than all the younger girls I know! Hoo hoo hoo!" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  2. "Oh, hoo hoo hoo! And how do I look today?" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  3. "My skin will always be beautiful! Hoo hoo hoo! Not even the younger girls look prettier than me!" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  4. "You know, HE always shows off his pictures of me just as soon as he's taken them." — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  5. "Well, is this how I look today? ...Why, I had no idea that the gloss on my skin was so...perfect! Just LOOK at me! I am so stunning! ...Oh, I feel so wonderful now! I have to reward you for making me feel so good about myself! Here!" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  6. "My son picked it up somewhere, and I would imagine you like this sort of thing, correct? My son likes it, so you must, too!" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  7. "So anyway, you know that brick building at the top of the steps? Well, the gentleman who lives there has SUCH class!" — Vera, The Wind Waker.
  8. "Ooh, I KNOW! That mysterious pictographer, Lenzo is so...dreamy! Ohhhhhhhh... He makes my heart go aflutter!" — Pompie, The Wind Waker.
  9. "But...do you think the rumors could be true? Is he actually devoted to someone special? He just seems too serious about his work to be involved with somebody..." — Vera, The Wind Waker.
  10. "The lucky lady! Who could she be?! I wish someone would take a pictograph of the two of them together so we could see if the rumors are true! Oh, that'd be to die for!" — Pompie, The Wind Waker.
  11. "...What?! I'll have you know I've only come here to have him take a pictograph of my exceptionally beautiful skin!" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  12. "I've been a huge fan of pictographs for a long time now... So don't go taking this the wrong way!" — Minenco, The Wind Waker.
  13. "OH! This is..." — Vera, The Wind Waker.
  14. "It's the pictographer, Lenzo, and that pictograph-loving lady!" — Pompie, The Wind Waker.
  15. "I guess we were completely wrong about Lenzo having a girlfriend... It looks as though they're just old friends who happen to share the same hobby." — Vera, The Wind Waker.
  16. "Thanks for setting us straight, young man. We really should stop spreading idle gossip like that. ...You've taught us the error of our ways, and to thank you, we're going to give you something nice. Stick out your hand!" — Pompie, The Wind Waker.
