Shikashi is a character from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

Ocarina of Time

Unnamed in Ocarina of Time, this old man lives in Hyrule Castle Town walking around during the day. Shikashi tells Link a story about the Legend of the Shadow Folk, the Sheikah who swore allegiance to the King of Hyrule and protected the Royal Family of Hyrule.[1] Furthermore, when Ganondorf's subjugation of Hyrule and the devastated Hyrule Castle Town take place, he moves in to Kakariko Village to live in. When Link talks to him there, Shikashi tells Link a story about the man who could see the truth who lived at the exact same spot where the well is.[2] During the night, he can be found in Mamamu Yan's house, and there he tells Link about the Cursed Rich Family, who got cursed due to their greed.[3]

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Professor Shikashi maintains the Astral Observatory in Termina Field. Inside, he possesses a Moon's Tear kept in a glassed case on a stand. He tells Link that the menacing Skull Kid has been messing with him and threatened him by saying that he will break his instruments and steal his Moon's Tear.[4][5]


  1. "Have you heard the legend of the "Shadow Folk"? They are the Sheikah...the shadows of the Hylians. They say they swore allegiance to the King of Hyrule and guarded the Royal Family. But with the long peace, no one has seen a Sheikah around here for a long time. However... I heard there is one Sheikah woman living in the castle..." — Shikashi, Ocarina of Time.
  2. "A long time ago... There was a man in this very village who had an eye they said could see the truth! Now usually, you have to train your mind's eye most strenuously to actually see the truth... But this fella, no, they say he had a different way of doing things... His house stood where the well is now..." — Shikashi, Ocarina of Time.
  3. "Folks around here tell of a fabulously rich family that once lived in one of the houses in this village... But they say that the entire family was cursed due to their greed! Who knows what might happen to those who are consumed by greed..." — Shikashi, Ocarina of Time.
  4. "I always say that it is important to develop your interests while you are young! You can use this telescope to look around town. If you're interested, give it a try." — Shikashi, Majora's Mask.
  5. "That ill-mannered troublemaker from the other day said he'd break my instruments... He said he'd steal my Moon's Tear... There was no stopping him." — Shikashi, Majora's Mask.
