Twin Lumberjacks (brothers)

Q. Bumpkin is a character from A Link to the Past found exclusively in the Game Boy Advance port of the game. He lives in the House of Lumberjacks along with his two brothers, A. Bumpkin and B. Bumpkin, the Twin Lumberjacks.

Unlike his two brothers, Q. Bumpkin does not have the strength to be a lumberjack. Instead, his talent comes in the form of riddles[1] and woodcarving.[2]

If there is an active save of Four Swords with 10 Medals of Courage in the same save file, Link can speak with Q. Bumpkin to initiate the Riddle Quest, an optional side quest only found in the Game Boy Advance version of the game. During the Riddle Quest, Link will need to use his Bug-Catching Net to acquire a variety of different objects and place them in Bumpkin's basket. Solving several of the riddles will cause Wooden Carvings to be sent to Link's House.[2] After solving all ten of the riddles in the side quest, Link will acquire the Hurricane Spin, allowing him to perform multiple spin attacks in a row.
