The Poe Collector, also known as the Mystery Man, is a character that appears in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

Appearances

Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, the Poe Collector operates the Ghost Ship, which was formally the Guard House, located just next to the broken moat of the ruins of what was once Hyrule Castle Town. He takes delight in the maliciousness of the ]]Big Poe]]s in Hyrule Field, and will give Link 50 Rupees and 100 Points for each Big Poe he gives the Poe Collector. If all 10 Big Poes are retrieved and Link reaches 1,000 points, the Poe Collector will give Link an Empty Bottle.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Link encounters the Mystery Man occasionally throughout the game. He also runs a mini-game inside the Spirit House in Ikana Canyon. The objective is to defeat all Poe Sisters to be awarded with a Piece of Heart. Unlike his Ocarina of Time counterpart, he appears more often in the game, giving Link information about certain things. The first time Link encounters the Mystery Man is on the Road to Ikana sitting atop the hill that leads to Ikana Canyon. However, he does not allow Link to enter Ikana Canyon yet, but if Link wears the Garo's Mask while speaking to him, he summons a withered tree near the ledge of the hill which allows Link to enter Ikana Canyon by latching on to it with the Hookshot.[1] He also explains that Ikana Canyon is where regretful spirits without serenity reside.[2][3][4][5][6] Link can then enter Ikana Canyon and participate in his mini-game. Link encounters him again in the Secret Shrine, which is found behind the waterfall in Ikana Canyon. He informs Link that he succeeded to dispatch the spirits in Ikana into serenity and that the creatures in the Secret Shrine have been awaiting Link for a long time.[7][8][9][10][11] After Link defeats all four mini-bosses in the Secret Shrine, he once again encounters the Mystery Man.[12][13] After speaking to him, he disappears, leaving behind a Treasure Chest containing a Piece of Heart.[14][15]

Trivia

  • If Link talks to the Guard House Soldier at nighttime in the same location as the Poe Collector is in, he says that he is interested in ghosts and that studying them is a hobby of his. It is possible that the Soldier and the Poe Collector are the same individual.[16]
