Mamamu Yan is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series with a great affinity for dogs.
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, Mamamu Yan appears as an unnamed woman with a dog. In Young Link's time, she lives in the Back Alley of Hyrule Castle Town. She is the proud owner of a dog named Richard. According to her, Richard is known to be faster and more intelligent than any of the other dogs around, whom she calls "mutts". If Link visits Mamamu Yan at her house during the night, she complains to Link that she can't find Richard. If Link finds Richard in the Market and brings it to her in the Back Alley, she thanks Link with a Piece of Heart. Link can repeat this task as many times as he wants and gets a Blue Rupee during subsequent attempts.
In the Adult Link timeline, she lives in Kakariko Village, where she lets Talon stay over after being fired from Lon Lon Ranch by Ingo. If Link talks to her, she reminisces about Richard, who has since died, having been a famous puppy.
In Majora's Mask, Mamamu Yan lives in Romani Ranch, where she owns the Doggy Racetrack, open from 6 A.M. to 8 P.M.  Here, Link may bet on dog races. If the dog he bets on reaches first place, he wins triple his bet; if it reaches second place, Link wins double his bet, and if it reaches third to fifth place, Link wins what he bet back. Anything lower causes him to lose all the Rupees he bet. Link may more easily determine the winner by wearing the Mask of Truth and talking to the dogs, in which case the dog that feels the best usually wins. Once Link obtains 150 Rupees from bets, he is awarded by Mamamu Yan with a Piece of Heart.
Oracle of Ages
In Oracle of Ages, Mamamu Yan lives in her own Home, located near the south-west portion of Lynna City. She is the self-proclaimed top dog breeder in Lynna City, and claims that her dog is much cuter than any other dog in town; however, he is shy. Link can trade the Doggie Mask he obtains from the Happy Mask Salesman to Mamamu Yan. In return, she gives Link the Dumbbell as part of the Trading Sequence.
Mamamu Yan Secret
- Main article: Mamamu Secret
After Link goes to Holodrum, during a Linked Game, with his journey in Labrynna complete, he can find Mamamu Yan's Mother in the western portion of Spool Swamp. She tells Link a Secret, and asks him to give it to Mamamu Yan in Labrynna. Revealing this secret to her results in Mamamu Yan asking Link to find her dog, who is running around in a random location in Lynna City. If Link successfully finds her dog and returns him, Mamamu Yan gives Link a Ring that, when appraised, becomes the Snowshoe Ring. Wearing this Ring prevents Link from sliding on frozen floors.
