Salvatore is a character from The Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass.

The Wind Waker

Salvatore in The Wind Waker is the owner of the Sinking Ships mini-game on Windfall Island. He also runs the Barrel Shoot mini-game on Spectacle Island.

When Link meets him on Windfall Island to play the Sinking Ships, he doesn't seem to care if Link actually chooses to play or not.[1][2] When Link descides to play, Salvatore will put on a puppet show, explaining the rules.[3] He puts on an accent, pronounciating words highlighting 'V's and 'Z's.[4]

Just like the Sinking Ships, Salvatore will put on a puppet show of sorts when running the Barrel Shoot. This time however, he is playing the role of Gonzo, one of the members of Tetra's Pirate Crew.[5] Furthermore, if Link succeeds at the game, Salvatore will wear a panel where he appears to be Tetra.[6]

Salvatore runs the Sinking Ships game 24-hours a day, where as he only runs the Barrel Shoot game during the daytime. At nighttime, Salvatore can still be found at the Barrel Shoot, but he is half asleep, telling Link to come back tomorrow.[7]

Birthplace: Windfall Island
Talent: Drawing Pictures
Long ago, Salvatore hoped to be a famous painter, but that dream didn't last long. He eventually returned to his hometown and came up with his current business plan. It's been a huge success, allowing him to purchase his own island, where he has opened up the second store in what he hopes will become a huge chain. He's now busy trying to think up that one idea that will spark his next big endeavor.

Phantom Hourglass

Salvatore makes another appearance in Phantom Hourglass. This time, he runs yet another mini-game on Bannan Island.

  5. "All right. Now then... Ermm... EH-HEM! Oh! Ho! Ho! So, you're the little shrimp who thinks he's a target-shooting hotshot, yeah? And you say this knowing full well that we are pirates who are so frightening that crying babies shut their mouths when we step into the room?! Har! This should be funny! Fine then, hotshot! If you can manage to sink the 5 pirate ships you see off on the horizon, we'll acknowledge your skills with a cannon, you shrimpy little landlubber! HOWEVER! We won't tolerate any comments about how the pirate ships look like barrels! And you get only 10 shots! You heard me! You can move your cannon with [+] and fire it with [A]. Watch the water plumes carefully when you fire, yeah?" — Salvatore, The Wind Waker.
