Squirrels are recurring animals in The Legend of Zelda series.

"It munches on nuts... What is it?"
In A Link to the Past (GBA), squirrels are a target in Q. Bumpkin's Riddle Quest. To answer the seventh riddle, Link must capture a squirrel with the Bug-Catching Net, place it in Bumpkin's basket and take it to him.
"Thank you for taking care of those bad guys! They made both the village and the forest a mess... They kidnapped the village children... But I know...you're not one of them. I can tell because you smell like the trees of Ordon... If you run into any trouble, try talking to the animals. We animals understand one another, so you'll be all right!"
