Sam is a character from The Wind Waker who resides on Windfall Island.


Sam can be seen sitting on a bench near Zunari's Shop on Windfall Island. Sam comments that people travel from all over the world to come to Windfall Island in hopes to become successful merchants. Windfall Island is the place where people and money come together, but Sam believes that people need to open up their hearts a little more than their wallets.[1] Sam is a bit of a romantic and instead says that sometimes he stops to enjoy the little things in world, such as the smell of the flowers.[2]

Joyous Volunteer Association

Main article: Joyous Volunteer Association

Sam is a member of the Joyous Volunteer Association, which is run by Mrs. Marie. Sam and his merchant buddies have installed Joy Pedestals across Windfall Island. They are designed so that people can place joyful objects to decorate the town. He encourages Link to talk to Zunari for more information.[3] After Link talks to Zunari and acquires a Town Flower, he can talk to Sam once again. Sam understands that Link is now helping with the Joyous Volunteer Association. He acknowledges his own membership and how rewarding it is to be a part of it.[4] When Link places a decoration on all 14 pedestals, Sam rewards the hero with a Piece of Heart.

  1. "People from all over the world seem to gather here on Windfall Island, all hoping to become successful merchants. I suppose you could say that this is the island where people and money come together. But you know what...? Money is important, sure...but don't you think people need to open their hearts a little more than their wallets?" — Sam, The Wind Waker.
  2. "I've been kicking around this crazy world for a long time, and I've learned to stop and sniff the flowers along the way!" — Sam, The Wind Waker.
  3. "The Joy Pedestals are set out so that people can place little joyful objects in them and decorate the town. The items you can place in them should be on sale over there, so try asking Zunari about the whole deal. Honestly, you're missing out if you don't take part!" — Sam, The Wind Waker.
  4. "Now I get it... You're secretly assisting the Joyous Volunteer Association, aren't you? Yeah, I've been a member for a while now, so I can just tell these things. And being a member is so rewarding! Spreading joy is something you just HAVE to experience!" — Sam, The Wind Waker.
