Moblin's Letter

Moblin's Letter is an item in The Wind Waker. It is a message from Moe, the Moblin that Maggie falls in love with.[1] After mailing Maggie's Letter in a Postbox, Link can return to Maggie's house to find her father arguing with the Rito postman, Ilari. Ilari is attempting to deliver the Moblin's Letter, but Maggie's father refuses to accept it, saying that postmen are not allowed in his house.[2][3] Ilari is annoyed because he went through a lot of trouble to reach Moe in the Forsaken Fortress and return with the letter, but Maggie's father will not listen.[4][5] Eventually, Ilari becomes so angry that he leaves to calm down.[6]

If Link goes to visit Ilari at the Cafe Bar, he apologizes for his previous behavior and explains that he just wanted to complete his job.[7][8] Although he knows that he will be considered a failure if he does not deliver the Moblin's letter, he tells Link that he cannot stay due to his other deliveries.[9][10] Finally, he asks Link to give the letter to Maggie for him.[11][12] If Link accepts, Ilari gives him the letter and thanks him, trusting Link to deliver the letter to Maggie.[13][14]

Upon returning to Maggie, she claims that she saw the letter in her dreams and demands to read it that very instant.[15] The letter reads as follows:

"This is Moe. I... like... you... Mag... gie... so... much... that... I... want... to... eat you... for dinner."

— Moblin's Letter

Maggie misunderstands, and believes that Moe is proposing to her.[16] She declares that day as the anniversary of her true love, and she gives Link a Piece of Heart to commemorate the occasion.[17][18]



  1. "You got the Moblin's Letter! This letter has sort of a stink to it. Take it to Maggie." — In-game description, The Wind Waker.
  2. "...Honestly! You just don't understand, do you?! Open up your ears!" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  3. "Silence! I'm telling you we don't allow postmen here! Begone! Begone!" — Maggie's Father, The Wind Waker.
  4. "Don't be ridiculous! I went through great trials and tribulations to go all the way to the Forsaken Fortress and return with Moe's letter..." — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  5. "SILENCE! Begone! Begone!" — Maggie's Father, The Wind Waker.
  6. "RAAAAAAWRK! Foolish man! Now you've made me angry! I cannot even look you in the face any longer, or I fear I might... ...I must go somewhere to cool my feathers!" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  7. "Oh! It's you! I'm sorry you had to witness me fly off the handle like that at Maggie's house. I'm most embarrassed. That man just...never mind." — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  8. "To tell you the truth, though... I came to deliver a letter addressed to Maggie from a Moblin named Moe, but as you saw, the girl's stubborn father won't permit me to give it to her. What a stubborn, meddling old man... Refusing to accept letters from the postman? Who's heard of such nonsense!?" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  9. "I went to great trouble to go all the way to the Forsaken Fortress, and it was a most frightening ordeal, let me tell you! ...If I don't deliver this letter, then I am a failure of the delivery trade... But..." — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  10. "I have other deliveries waiting to be made. I cannot mope here forever!" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  11. "Actually, though... I have an idea. That old fool may not permit postmen on his premises... But surely he would allow YOU in the place, would he not? Could you deliver this letter to Maggie in my stead?" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  12. "What do you say? I'll do it Actually, I'm busy" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  13. "Honestly? You, young man, are a lifesaver. ...It truly never hurts to ask! I shall leave this letter in your care!" — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  14. "I'm counting on you to put this in Maggie's hands. And I thank you." — Ilari, The Wind Waker.
  15. "Is... Is that...?! Could it be? The letter from Moe that I saw in my dreams?! ...Let me read it this instant!!!" — Maggie, The Wind Waker.
  16. "Did you hear that? Those words? This means... I mean, it must mean... Can it be...?!? Is this his marriage proposal? It must be! At last, my feelings have been conveyed to Moe! At last he understands how I feel!" — Maggie, The Wind Waker.
  17. "This is the happiest day of my life! Troo di doo di loo la LAAAAAAAA! From here on out, today will be the anniversary of true love for me and Moe..." — Maggie, The Wind Waker.
  18. "Oh! It completely slipped my mind! I must thank you for your role in this! To commemorate my anniversary of true love...I give you this!" — Maggie, The Wind Waker.
