Very small, only visible to children



Key Characters

The Minish, also known as Picori by the Hylians, are an incredibly tiny race found only in The Minish Cap. They are only visible to children and cannot be seen by adults. In The Minish Cap, the people of Hyrule tell legends about the Picori. When Link rescues Ezlo, the once Minish sage turned into a bird-like cap that Link wears, he gives Link the ability to shrink down to Minish size. This turns Link into a very small Minish-sized being, which allows him to interact with the world in a very different way. Link's ability to turn Minish heavily affects the story and gameplay, being a major factor throughout The Minish Cap. The Minish also have their own language which Link cannot speak at first until he obtains the Jabber Nut.

There are three types of Minish, which vary depending on their location, including Forest Minish, Mountain Minish, and Town Minish.
