?Caption

?A young boy who lives in Hyrule. He is close friends with Princess Zelda.

?A young boy on a quest with Ezlo to restore the Four Sword. With the sword's power, he hopes to remove the curse on Princess Zelda.

?A bright and cheery princess from Hyrule's royal family. She loves to sneak out of the castle to visit her good friend, Link.

?A strange creature that looks at first like a cap. He speaks roughly and treats Link like a child, but he actually really likes Link.

?When the young Minish donned Ezlo's magic cap, he took this evil form. Now, he searches for the light force in his quest to become all-powerful.

?The king of Hyrule. Reported to have been a fine swordsman, he appeared in the Picori Festival tournament as a youth and fought to a draw with Smith.

?The supporting pillar of Hyrule. He is also in charge of Princess Zelda's education, so when she goes missing, he gets frustrated.

?The finest swordsmith in Hyrule. As a young man, he was a great swordsman. He and King Daltus are friends and enjoyed a pleasant rivalry as youths.

?The mayor of the town of Hyrule. He is a collector of masks. He's built a shelter into his garden just in case monsters ever attack Hyrule.

?Second in command at Hyrule's post office. She's mellow and laid-back, entirely unlike the high-strung and easily excitable Stamp.

?A busy, hardworking postal employee, although he can be a touch edgy. The stamp he uses is his own personal one, so please don't borrow it. Thanks.

?The proprietor of Rem's Shoe Store. Using his "secret technique," he makes shoes in his sleep. Princess Zelda is his single biggest source of income.

?A gruff-talking academic type who is obsessed with studying the Picori. He doesn't seem to be aware that there is a Minish living in his own house.

?A sculptor of finely crafted figurines. Many consider him the best sculptor in all of Hyrule. He enjoys collecting Mysterious Shells.

?Owner of the Chest Mini-Game Shop. Carlov's younger brother. He detests gambling, but he has made the biggest gamble of all: entrepreneurship.

?The handy neighborhood gear seller, also called Stockwell the Well-Stocked. He complains that he's been too busy lately to see his dog, Borken.

?His mysterious dungeon-simulation game is very popular in Hyrule. It gives players the illusion of fighting real monsters in real dungeons.

?He wants to rent out his house in town, but he's too overbearing to attract a tenant. He doesn't even seem to realize what the problem is...

?This young woman tends to her cuccos in Hyrule Town. If you help her gather her loose cuccos, she'll give you a reward.

?Hyrule's vegetable vendor. He sells fine produce. He also argues constantly with the fruit vendor, Pina, over the health benefits of vegetables.

?Hyrule's fruit vendor. She hates vegetables, so she won't even sell tomatoes, even though they technically ARE fruits. Freak.

?Though he is an adult, he is very good at finding Picolyte made by the Minish. And he is very, VERY convincing about their healthful properties.

?A very serious mail deliveryman. He continues to make every delivery right on time every day.

?A hermit who lives on Mount Crenel. He has lots of Kinstone pieces. He brags that he won the festival tournament when he was younger.

?A weird old lady living in Percy's house without his permission. She doesn't want you to turn on the lights, because she's actually...

?The gravedigger at the cemetery. They say he has the power to speak with the dead. He fuses the Kinstones he digs up with the local ghosts.

?The spirit of an ancient king of Hyrule who wishes to secure peace in his land from beyond the grave. He was very fond of the people of the Wind Tribe.

?A wizard who lives in the Minish Woods. She sells magic items with odd powers. She's looking for an apprentice to whom she can teach her mystic spells.

?The Great Butterfly Fairy of Mount Crenel. She provides you with a larger wallet, allowing you to carry more Rupees with you.

?The Great Mayfly Fairy of Mount Crenel. She provides you with a larger bomb bag, allowing you to carry more bombs with you.

?The Great Dragonfly Fairy of Mount Crenel. She gives you a larger quiver, allowing you to carry more arrows with you.

?A poet who lives in Trilby Highlands. He comes home from a long journey to find his house occupied by an unwanted guest. Poor guy...

?She's looking for a house in Hyrule to move into. She is descended from a line of priestesses in the land of Labrynna.

?She's looking for a house in Hyrule to move into. She's a very helpful person, but people take advantage of her kind nature. This really bothers her.

?She's looking for a house in Hyrule to move into. She is a famous dancer from the land of Holodrum.

?A rare butterfly said to bring happiness to those who catch it. If you see one on your journeys, try to grab it!

?A strange Ghini who wants to fuse Kinstone pieces, which is somewhat peculiar for a monster. She has a lot of pieces, so keep on fusing!

?A priest living in Minish Village. He speaks some human languages. He sees that Link is human with one look. He's a bit of a human enthusiast.

?The elder of the Forest Minish. He has lived among humans for a long time. He knows where the four elements are. He has a twin brother in Hyrule's library.

?Not visible to the eyes of adults, they delight in making humans happy by hiding helpful items and Rupees under grass and rocks all over the world.

?This Town Minish elder is Gentari's twin brother. Those large wings that he is so proud of are trophies from a duel with a chicken as a young Minish.

?These Minish like humans so much that they moved from Minish Village into Hyrule itself! They try to make humans happy, but it sometimes backfires.

?He lives with his seven apprentices in Mount Crenel, which contains all the mineral riches they will ever need. He seems gruff, but he's trustworthy.

?These seven students followed Melari from Minish Village to Mount Crenel. Their song is actually a sign that they are full-fledged Mountain Minish now.

?These rock- and iron-eaters once lived on Mount Crenel in Western Hyrule. Now their numbers are few, and they live quietly in a cave.

?Before he became a sorcerer, he was a simple Minish. He had always been entranced by the evil that lives in the hearts of men...

?These vassals serve the king of Hyrule. They are loyal and diligent. Like the king himself, they are courteous yet frank.

?The Royal Hyrule Library. Although the library is well loved, many forget to return their books, causing no end of trouble for the librarians.

?All of these self-trained swordsmen have won the fighting tournament at the Picori Festival before. They see great potential in Link.

?This couple bakes bread in Hyrule. Their tasty pastries hold a secret... If you're extra lucky, there'll be a helpful item hidden inside!

?This is where all the children of Hyrule learn. Link and Princess Zelda studied here, too. The two teachers are twins named Tina and Dina.

?This is the best place in town to relax. You can also pick up some good tips, from the latest gossip to observations about the world.

?This generous inn gives a gift to every guest who stays the night. Guests can unwind in the lobby on the second floor.

?Zill is the one in the middle. He likes to wander around town with his friends. He knows a lot about the town, and he might even have some info for you.

?These carpenters may be rough around the edges, but they do good work. They may seem tough, but they're in touch with their feminine side.

?Romio and Julietta grew up next door to one another. They're dating now, but they plan to marry once they get their pets' approval.

?The people who built the Wind Ruins. They now live above the clouds, suspended by their own magic ability to control the wind.

?This Goron appears when you successfully fuse certain Kinstone pieces. He will sell you expensive, but rare, Kinstone pieces.

?Ghosts from the Royal Valley. The one in the blue cap is Spookter, and the one in the red cap is Spekter. Spookter tries to be scary, but he's just not.

?Appears in Minish dungeons. They drop from the ceiling unexpectedly. They are slow, so take your time, and defeat them one by one.

?Appears in the Palace of Winds. Constructed by the Wind Tribe to repel intruders, this sturdy machine cannot be destroyed by any external force.

?Appears in the Temple of Droplets. An ordinary blue Chuchu. Fighting him while Minish-sized is daunting, but just try to avoid that electric attack.

?These two became fast friends because of Smith and the king of Hyrule. Zelda wishes that the sometimes unreliable Link were just a wee bit stronger.


?The Minish Ezlo, before he was cursed by Vaati. He is a famous Minish sage. Even among Minish inventors, he was renowned for his amazing creations.

?Appears in Dark Hyrule Castle. This is the strongest Dark Nut, with a good balance of attack and defense. They will do anything to stop you.

?The sorcerer Vaati took this form after draining the power of the light force from Princess Zelda. The evil beams from his eyes are devastating.

?Once Vaati's body has been shattered, this dark form rises up, all that remains of the evil sorcerer. Only the sacred Four Sword can defeat him.

?This is the embodiment of purest evil, the final form of the power-mad Vaati. Its mind is consumed with a hunger for destruction. Find its weakness.

?This strange red postbox has the ability to fuse Kinstone pieces with you. Some say there is really just a person hiding inside it...

?H

?Ew! What is that? Is that a caterpillar? It's disgusting! Hey, kid! I'll just let you take care of this one!

?What are you doing, talking to me at a time like this! You've got work to do!

?My word! It has spikes, it jumps... What can't it do!? Ah, such a bother!

?Ahhhh! Watch your feet!! Such an inhospitable monster this is!

?This must be another Guardian, wouldn't you agree? Hm... Knock him down, and he just gets back up again! Link! It's time to see if you can knock him down for good!

?Link! If you need my help, you know where to find me! Just give me a shout, and I'll see what I can do to lend a...er...beak.

?Link, I would imagine that you can take this thing out with ease now. Just remember everything I've taught you!

?This weather's miserable! I think I'm catching a cold... Ah...ah...achoo! Oh, don't worry about me, Link. I'm sure I'll be just fine... Sniffle...

?These sky-flying rays will be no match for my White Sword! I mean your White Sword, Link!!

?Maybe I forgot to mention it, but I'm not so good with heights... But this thing would be a piece of cake on land, am I not right? Well, no point worrying about that now!

?These Black Knights are in Vaati's service! Exercise caution, Link!

?If we don't stop Vaati here, Princess Zelda--and all of Hyrule--is done for! We cannot allow that to happen, Link!

?So this is the true form of the sorcerer Vaati! So dark... So powerful... So evil!

?Link, judging by the look in your eyes, I'd say you've made up your mind! Excellent! Perhaps now, we are ready to face Vaati!

?He's mad with power! He's nothing but a swirling mass of raw chaos now! He will consume everything and reduce the world to darkness! If we let him go now, he will engulf the world in an eternal night!

?What are you doing!? We've no time for any of your nonsense!

?Waugh! What a hideous face! ...It's no good, Link. We tried to settle this peacefully, but some people can't be reasoned with...

?Link, save your breath! Fight now and talk later!

?So this would be the Deepwood Shrine the Minish elder spoke of... He...said something about there being monsters inside, didn't he? He-Hey now! No reason to be afraid or anything... I'll be waiting right here. No, wait! What am I saying!? I'm not letting you leave me alone out here!

?Wow... It's hot in here! Come on! Let's not stand around wasting time! Find that element, so we can get out of here!

?Hm. To think the ruins were hidden within this cliff the whole time! Watch your step, Link. There may be traps in here.

?Who knew that there was a place like this behind the town water pump?! Well, maybe we should get moving and find that Minish treasure!

?Urk... Owowow!! I just smacked my hip on something! Well, not my hip... My...whatever it is I have now... My brim? Whatever! That old fool must just love sending people on dangerous missions! And how did that Librari get into the Temple of Droplets, anyway? I guess the answer lies up ahead. Keep moving, boy!

?Brrr...chatter chatter... I'm freezing in here...!! If you don't find that element quickly, I'm going to turn into a hatsicle!! Hurry up, Link!


?It may be the Royal Crypt, but graves are creepy, no matter whose they are! Where are we supposed to go to meet this King Gustaf anyway? I'm not so sure I even want to anymore! Can we just go somewhere less creepy?

?What an irritation! We find our way to the very tops of the clouds... And now we have to go even higher to find a floating palace? I can't believe what a long way we've come. And look how high we are! Don't look down, Link! And watch your step! It's a long fall from here!

?How much farther do we have to go!? This place goes on forever! Ah, there's no point in complaining about it. We must press onward! We're almost there, Link! Let's go!

?Whoa...! Is this really Hyrule Castle? I can't believe it! What's happened here? Vaati's magic has grown more powerful than I'd imagined... But the king and Zelda are in danger, Link! Let's go!

?These raindrops are like boulders of water to us, kid! Watch out! If one of them hits us, it'll do more than a little damage!

?Hehehe! So, what do you think, Link?

Pretty dark and spooky, isn't it? Makes you wanna cry, doesn't it? What? You're...not scared? Well, good! Neither am I! So, um... Come on, let's go...

?Wow! Look at the size of that waterfall! Beautiful! Simply beautiful, my boy!

?A stone door! So! This was what they meant by all of that "source of the flow" business! Well, this waterfall certainly is the source of all Hyrule's water. According to King Gustaf, the final element lies somewhere behind the falls. We've dawdled long enough, Link! Let's go find that element!

?What have we here? Some kind of vortex? Well, we seem to have hit a dead end... What shall we do from here?

? ... ... Am I still alive?

... ... ... ... Link!! What were you thinking, child! You just reaped the whirlwind, as they say! We could be dead right now!

... ... ... ... ...But I must admit, it did the trick! Are we...in the land above the clouds? Then there must be something here that can lead us to the final element! Let's go find it!

?Now how do you build something like this on top of a cloud? Maybe someone lives inside. If so, perhaps we could ask for the element? It's worth a shot, Link!

?So this perfectly normal-looking stone was another portal to the Minish world! I suppose I would have remembered that if I'd stopped to think about it...

?That's right! Even some human objects are portals to the Minish world! Those Minish may not look like much, but they are quite crafty!

?What!? What's this...?! They've been turned to stone! The minister...! And the guards...! Just like Princess Zelda... This can only be the work of that evil Vaati! What cruelty. Link! We must use the power of the sacred Four Sword to undo this!

?Once you've pulled off their iron masks, these guys are no trouble whatsoever.

?Your sword won't make a dent in their thorny armor! Flip them over before you strike!

?Don't panic, Link! Only one of them is real! The rest are fakes!

?With their stone masks on, these things can put up quite a fight. If you just unmask them, though, they won't pose much of a threat.

?Hmn?! Hmmmmnnnn... Ah, of course! How silly of me! Hey, my boy! Jump into that vortex over there for me! I think I've got an idea!

?Whoa! How about that?! Of all the places for them to hide a portal! You've done well, my boy. Was that intuition? Or...just a lucky guess?

?Hmn? There's something fishy about this area... I can't say exactly what, though... Just something weird in general... Don't you feel it?

?Whoa! So there WAS a portal hidden there! I knew I sensed something!

?So, this must be Castor Wilds... It's a nasty, dank place, filled with swampland and mire... But we know there's an element waiting for us somewhere in here, so... In we go! Come on, Link! Into the muck with us!

?Now, that is one nasty-looking statue! That one eye has such an evil glower.

?There's only one thing to do here. Just break those pots that are in the way! Stand in front of them and press [button] to lift them over your head. Then press it again to throw them!

?With this small key, we should be able to open any locked door here! But I should warn you, once you've used the key, it will vanish forever. To use it, just stand in front of a locked door and press [button].

?Do you see that lever? I think you should be able to pull it. Just stand in front of it and press [button] to grab it, then press [button] to pull.

?Once you take hold of something with , use [button] to push or pull it. This is extremely important, so I hope you take pains to remember it!

?Wow! Look at the size of that barrel! Hm? Oh, right! Right! How silly of me! It's not big we're just small!

?Wha--!? Hey, be careful, my lad! The barrel just moved!

?What we need now is something to hold down this switch...

?Now what? Unless we find a way to travel by water, we won't be going much farther.

?This must be what the humans who built this mine used to get around in here. Maybe we should hop in. Hm? What? After all this, you don't expect me to believe you're scared! There's nothing to be afraid of here! Come on, let's go!

?Sweet jumping jellyfish, that was awful! Hey, kid, what are you smiling about? I knew it was madness to risk our lives in that rickety human contraption! From now on, let's just stick to our feet! Well, I mean...your feet.

?Oh my! It looks really, REALLY hot in that lava! Trust me: falling into that would be a bad idea. I'm sure you agree.

?How interesting! So there was a portal hidden away in here, hm? Whenever you want me to shrink you down, just hop up here and press [button]!

?Phew...! We barely made it! I was certain we'd run out of time!

?Hmn?! Did something just fall down, or was it just my imagination?

?What?! This floor is made out of ice! Be careful not to fall and freeze your backside to the floor, Link!

?Hm. It looks like something is frozen inside this block of ice... Link, why don't you go take a look?

?Hey! The sunlight's shining through! Ahhh... It's so nice and warm. I can feel myself starting to defrost again.

?Hey...!! Well done, Link! This looks to be the element, all right. But what will we do? We can't even touch it while it's trapped in that ice... We'll need to melt it off somehow...

?Of course! Sunlight! Once we get some sunlight in to melt the ice, that element will be as good as ours!


?We did it, Link! Now we can take the element! That was a lot of trouble, but we finally did it, and... What in blazes!? Hey, something's not right here!!

?What!? What's this?! That stupid Octorok stole our element! Don't just stand there! We've got to go get it! Link! Now!

?Link! Where are you? Are you still there under me? It's so dark, I can't see my beak in front of my face! Watch your step! I don't want you to trip over anything...

?Oh my! There was a portal hidden in there?

?There's a fluffy cloud floating here. It looks awfully comfortable.

?That panel... I think if we stomped on it hard enough, it might flip over...

?There's a strong gale blowing here! Try not to get swept away! And hold on to your hat!

?Perhaps your sword could reflect some of the blasts coming from that statue.

?What in the world is that?!

?Hmmm... Yes, yes... It certainly does look suspicious...

?Huh? Wha--? What in the world!?

?My word! It's a treasure chest!

?There seems to be a switch here!

?Oh, a Piece of Heart! Well, that IS useful.

?So this is your house... Well, it seems like a nice place. ...So, where's my room?

?So! This is your room? That makes it my room, too, right?

?I sense something unusual here... Is it something hidden? I won't tell anyone, so come on! Show me!

?Why, this is the shopkeeper Stockwell's house! You can tell much about a person from the house he keeps, hm? It's pretty unusual, even by Hyrulean standards. It even has a pool!

?That mustachioed guy strikes me as somewhat unreliable. There's something fishy about this room, too.

?Sniff sniff sniff! Mmmm, doesn't that smell spectacular? Perhaps they give out free samples. I say, would you...ask for me?

?There seem to be many interesting books in here... Hyrule on 10 Rupees a Day, So Your Son Wants to Be a Hero... It Could Be Verse!, by Percy, and Anthology for Sleepless Nights. Hmmm, they all look pretty good, but which one to read first?

?Are you sure I look all right? I never know what to wear to formal occasions.

?How tranquil... And those cows look so...delicious.

?Whoa! Did you see that cat looking at me?! I know it wants a piece of me!

?Waaah! That really startled me! Everything's scary when you're small!

?Hm? Whoa! It...blew up? Hey, kid! Look at where that stone used to be... There's some strange symbol on the ground. Yes, of course ... Why, that must be... ...Well, I haven't the foggiest, to be honest. Hm...

?Hey! That stone obelisk crumbled! And there's another of those marks! ...You know, no matter how many times I see that happen, it still rattles me.

?Hey! We've found another Wind Crest! Now we have one more point of travel when we use the Ocarina of Wind!

?Aha!! So that mysterious mark we've been seeing is a Wind Crest. If you play the Ocarina of Wind, Zeffa comes to pick you up and fly you away. That means we can have Zeffa carry us to any other Wind Crest we've seen. Are you following me, Link? Don't hurt your brain thinking about it. Just give it a try, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

?Hmn?! Say, look at that, Link! There's a book up on top of the bookcase! But how are we going to get it? We can't reach it, and we have no ladder. And I don't think just shaking the bookcase will make it fall, either. This presents an interesting problem, wouldn't you say?

?Hey now! You can't just go waltzing into people's homes like that! If the owner isn't home, you'll just have to come back later.

?Hm. This house appears to be empty... Maybe we shouldn't go in here.

?Hm? That's unfortunate... They're not open yet. Ah, well. We'll just have to come back later, won't we?

?The door is shut. We can't open it from this side ...

?Hey, you don't have any Kinstone pieces! How can you fuse Kinstones if you don't have any Kinstone pieces!?

?Hey! Link! Watch your feet! You're sinking! You're sinking! If you sink all the way in, I'm going to get muddy! I don't think we can just walk across this swamp. We're going to have to find some way to get across safely. But we can discuss it later! Get me out of here! NOW!

?Hey, kid! Why don't you take that Cane of Pacci and fire it at that hole? I mean, you never know what'll happen until you try, right?

?Oooooog. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I'm no good with heights. Wait, hold on... I think I see something down there! Sigh... I guess that means we have to go down there after all, hm?

?Hmph! There's a locked door here! See if you can find a key to open it.

?That noise just now! What was that? Something must have happened... Be careful, Link!!

?|

?What!? I haven't even had time to settle in, and you're bothering me? Deepwood Shrine lies, obviously enough, deep in the heart of these woods! So says my superior intuitive sense. Now, get a move on!

?This place is dangerous... There are so many monsters. Kid! Be careful! You wouldn't want to let them hurt me!

?"Check your surroundings to make sure there's nothing hidden!" That's the cardinal rule of adventuring! So don't you forget it!

?Sometimes, a way will open for you when you are smaller. You've got to try everything you can, my boy!

?The Minish are exceptionally tiny! That means, when you're their size, you can fit into some pretty tiny spots! That includes places you couldn't go at your normal size. That's a pretty good tip, huh?

?Hey, kid! Maybe now you'll have a little respect for me, huh? That's right! I can turn you tiny anytime you want! Well, that is, if there's a stump or some other kind of portal nearby...

?Hm. We're not going to get anywhere if the Minish can't understand you...

?The Minish certainly do seem to be curious about the ways of humans...

?"Don't ponder wander!" Don't waste your time trying to think things through too quickly. Take your time! Look around Minish Village and see what you can see!

?A strange nut that will allow us to understand the Minish language... The Jingle Nut, did he say...? No, wait... That's not it... Ah, I remember now! It was the Jabber Nut. That's what it was... Come on, my boy! We've got to find the Jabber Nut!

?So that Jabber Nut was, uhh... Yeah, the Minish with glasses said, um... What was that guy anyway? ...A pig or something? Anyway, we're supposed to go south until we find a house inside a barrel.

?Once you've learned how to speak the Minish language, we'll be able to ask about the sacred blade. Let's get to it!

?Well? What are you waiting for? You can understand their language, right? So stop wasting time and find out about that sacred blade!

?So only the Minish can repair the sword, hm? Maybe we should find out what the other Minish know about that.

?You've never actually seen the Minish before, have you? Ah, well, they are mostly good folk. Yes...mostly...

?If you have any hopes of reforging the sacred blade, do as the elder says. Go find the Earth Element!

?A Minish shrine filled with monsters? It sounds dangerous in there! We'd better be careful... I mean, you'd better be careful!

?What? Don't tell me you're lost! Listen, if you get lost, just examine your surroundings closely... I'm sure you can find some kind of clue nearby.

?We got through that monster-filled shrine and found the Earth Element! Great work, kid! You're doing a fine job! Thanks to my help, of course.

?The Minish elder wanted us to speak with him once we found that element. That's where we ought to go.

?We need to learn how to reforge the broken sacred blade. We'll have to speak with the Minish elder about that, won't we? Well? What are you waiting for!? Evil won't go vanquishing itself, you know!

?So we're supposed to meet a Minish blacksmith named Melari on Mt. Crenel? You know, maybe we should stop in at the town of Hyrule before leaving...

?What's the matter? Are you lost? Just where do you think you're taking us, anyway? Look at a map or something! Just press START to see it.

?Have you ever visited Hyrule before? What? You have? ...What's it like? Not that I... I mean, I've seen it before! Of course I have! I'm very well traveled. I just wanted to see...what you thought of it!

?Mount Crenel is a forbidding and rocky place with many steep cliffs. It lies just west of Hyrule Town. We ought to equip ourselves in town before risking the journey.

?Aww... I guess the festival that was going on here in town has already ended. I really wanted to see that... It must have looked quite different when the festival was going on, hm?

?Look at all these shops! This is so different from a Minish village! I-I-I... I can't decide where to go next! Come on, my boy! Let's go shopping!

?Oh, don't tell me you've forgotten already! What is WRONG with you? The Minish elder told us to see Melari up on Mount Crenel. But how do you suppose we're going to climb that pile of rocks, anyway?

?Hmmm... If the mountain is anything like those woods, there will be monsters ahead. I'm not really busting a seam to see this Melari, but...we have no choice.

?Oh, hey! I totally forgot! That sword technique you learned from the swordsman... The Spin Attack, that's what it's called, right? That is so incredible! Do you think you could teach it to me sometime? Hm?! Hey! Don't give me that look! I can do anything that you can do! Just give me some arms, and I'll show you what's what!

?A bean that grows when you pour water on it... I guess it was a good idea to buy that bottle from the Deku Scrub after all! See, my boy? Listen to me, and you'll go far!

?Hrm... Where on Mount Crenel is this Melari the blacksmith, anyway? Well, we know he's Minish, so try to keep your eyes peeled!

?Hey, kid! What's the matter? You don't know which way to go? At times like these, try everything you can at spots that seem like dead ends! Sometimes, you can find a way hidden in the most unlikely of spots! ...Um, sometimes.

?Hmm... It seems there are two types of bean on Mount Crenel: blue and red. If the color is different, I suppose how you treat each one is different, too.

?Remember, we have to find our way to the top of Mount Crenel! Once we're there, we'll start looking for that Melari.

?Explain something to me, my boy... Why are we just wandering around? We're supposed to be scaling Mount Crenel and looking for Melari!

?Somewhere on Mount Crenel, there's a Minish blacksmith named Melari! We have to find him!

?There are some strange creatures on Mount Crenel... Creatures I've never seen before, and your sword alone won't beat them! Don't give up hope, though! Try your other items on them! Well...you don't need me to tell you how to do your job. Just deal with those monsters, and I'll take care of everything else.

?What? You're lost again, aren't you? Have you bothered reading any of those signs we've been seeing? You really ought to study them. They might have some useful information! ...Not that I've been reading them either...

?Hey! Hurry up and find that Melari, so we can fix the sacred blade!

?Have you noticed something odd about the Mountain Minish? They're just a little different from the Forest Minish, aren't they? There seem to be many kinds of Minish, just as there are many kinds of human. And...many kinds of hat, too. Mustn't forget the hats.

?These Mountain Minish sure are hard workers! We should work just as hard and sing a spiffy little song, like they do! What do you think? Hey! Kid...? Are you still listening to me?

?This isn't the time to idle about, you lazy boy! We have to go search for the elements while Melari works on that sword!

?So humans made this mine long ago? Well it's full of monsters now, kid, so watch your back!

?Perhaps the humans who made this mine will have left some things we can use... After all, there's no reason to let good wares go to waste.

?So we beat the fire monster and got the second element! Incredible! Kid, you may just be some kind of hero or something! I knew I sensed potential in you!

?Oh, so I bet Melari has finished with that sword. We should go pick it up!

?So how about that sword that Melari fixed up for you, huh? I may be just a hat, but I can admire good craftsmanship!

?We must find the elemental sanctuary to fill the sword with elemental power. I'd never have looked for the elemental sanctuary in Hyrule Castle, though! You know how to get there, right? Let's go!

?So of the four elements, we've got Earth and Fire... And now, we have the White Sword to absorb their power! That means the sacred blade's power has almost been restored!

?Why do you look so confused? Don't you understand what's going on? The elemental sanctuary exists between the human world and the Minish world. Here, let me explain with a little example: in a ham sandwich... the elemental sanctuary would be the ham between the two slices of bread! ...You've still got that look. Did I just make it more confusing?

?So! We must infuse the White Sword with the elemental power. That means we must find the elemental sanctuary. And the way we do that is... Um... Well, I'm sure we'll figure it out!

?I think that you and I may be the only ones who can see the mystic doorway... Well, that's fine by me. That means no one will notice anything unusual!

?We just need to infuse the sword with the power of these two elements. Then, the sacred blade will be nearly complete!

?Only two elements remain! They must be in the places marked on your map by the Minish elder! Why don't we take another look at that map?

?So the sacred blade has finally started to show us a portion of its power! If we use this new skill of yours well, we should be able to access new areas!

?If you're after the elements, just check your map by pressing START. I believe the elder of the Forest Minish marked the locations there.

?Hrm... According to the map, we'll need to cross Castor Wilds. That unexplored region is where we must go to find the next element!

?The swamp covering Castor Wilds looks impassable on foot. What will we do!?

?Link, how long has it been since you left home? Your grandfather must be worried. Why don't you show your face at home? He must have plenty of news to share with you by now.

?Hnyaaaawn... Mmmmnumumummm... Even I'm getting tired now... I guess I need a wake-up mushroom or something to perk me up!

?Hoho! Well... The big lake spreading out to the west of Hyrule is Lake Hylia. The rich water that flows from it has fed the Minish Woods for millennia. Every day, you learn something new, don't you, Link?

?Well, I say! There seem to be a lot of Minish living in town, too... Even if they can't be seen, I'm sure the Minish make their presence known...

?So, about that wake-up mushroom you just bought... It kind of, um...smells. COUGH! COUGH! I suppose that awful stink could pull anyone from the deepest slumber!

?Hey, Link. I've been up here for a while, and I've been wondering... I know about hats now, but I don't know much about Hyrulean shoes... Where could we go to learn a little more about that?

?So about that old lady in the woods named Syrup or something... Didn't she strike you as a little bit, well, strange? I'm confident that her potions work as advertised, though. She looks like someone who could whip up a mean magic brew...

?Once we cross Castor Wilds, the element should be easy to find. If you forget where to go, just take a look at your map.

?When you're crossing a swamp, you want to be as swift as the wind... There's no point in stopping to look around. Sightseeing is right out! What I'm trying to say is that I don't much relish the thought of a mud bath!

?That one-eyed stone statue in Castor Wilds looks like it's staring at us! ...That eye really creeps me out.

?Creepy ruins standing on the far side of Castor Wilds... Maybe that's where the ancient people who guarded the element used to live.

?That element is sure to be protected by traps inside those ancient ruins! Link, be careful!

?Don't just wander around aimlessly... That's the quickest way to get lost! If you do get lost, look at your map immediately to get your bearings. You will find your way only if you know where you are AND where you're going.

?The next element is near Lake Hylia. Now, how are we going to get there? I wonder who might be able to help us out with something like that...

?All we have to do is use the Ocarina of Wind to call Zeffa! If we stand on a Wind Crest and call him, he'll take us where we want to go!

?Well, now that we've got this Ocarina of Wind, shouldn't we try to use it? Even places we've seen before may hold new surprises if we try flying there...

?Well, I'd never have suspected it of that Minish elder in the library... To think he was an adventurer! And that he visited the Temple of Droplets! Maybe we should look up that Librari and hear what he has to say.

?Hm. Now, how did Librari get into the Temple of Droplets? I guess we'll just have to go visit him at the library and ask.

?So, where in the library would any Minish folk live, anyway? Maybe those people who say the Minish exist "only in stories" might be right! Hey! Link! What's that look for? Don't tell me you were one of...them? You're kidding me! You're wearing a Minish person on your head, you oaf! I certainly hope you believe in us now!

?How did we get roped into running all over creation returning library books? I understand it's all just to learn how to enter the Temple of Droplets, but this is hardly the sort of duty worthy of a great adventurer!

?Minish people are very interested in human ways. I think they watch the people in town very closely. They've probably been watching you, too, without your knowing it. Hey, Link, careful what you say and do when you think you're alone!

?So there are three books that we're supposed to return, right? Link, I'm sure you can handle it! Don't get me wrong! I'd love to help! But I'm a great Minish sage! I don't understand your big, human ways! So...I'm counting on you!

?This really is starting to take valuable time from our search for the element! But buck up, kiddo! We're almost done, Link!!!

?I just can't figure out how Librari got into the Temple of Droplets. I'm going crazy with curiosity!

?You know, even these Minish living in the town still have their own troubles. I feel like I've learned a lot here.

?The Temple of Droplets holds the last of the elements, like the Minish elder said. So let's brace ourselves and do this! Are you ready, Link?! ... ... What?! What's that face for? You don't want to brace yourself?! All right, fine! No bracing! Let's just go!

?Did you know the Flippers Librari gave you let you dive as well as swim? They're good for avoiding things when you're in the water... And let's face it, if something hits you in the head while you're swimming... I'm going to be the one who gets the worst of it. So please, remember that. For my sake, Link!

?Don't just wander around aimlessly... That's the quickest way to get lost! If you do get lost, look at your map immediately to get your bearings. You will find your way only if you know where you are AND where you're going.

?That phantom we saw earlier... He said he was an ancient king of Hyrule. What else do we know? The element was nowhere to be seen in the Wind Ruins. I guess we'll just have to go to the place marked on our map... But first, you should infuse your sword with that element. We must head for the elemental sanctuary!

?The king and the guards must not be able to see it... But the entrance to the elemental sanctuary is right in the courtyard!

?Link! Aren't you forgetting a little something? We need to infuse your sword with the element that we worked so hard to get! After all, we certainly worked hard enough to get it. We ought to use it!

?I suppose we'll have to try going to the point marked on the map... We have no other clues leading us to the remaining element, that's for sure.

?Link, there's only one element remaining! Once you've used the sacred blade to free Princes Zelda from her curse, perhaps you can ask her out on a date or something. Don't worry, I'll be right there with you! You will need my advice, after all!

?Did you see that? King Gustaf was calling us... Perhaps we ought to visit the point marked on our map. It may have been a dream, but I'm sure it will make sense if we go there.

?Uhh... Don't tell me the new path leads us into a grave...? That means King Gustaf must really have been a...a... Whoa! I just got a chill down my seam!

?I haven't mentioned it up to now, but ghosts and stuff like that... They really give me the heebie-jeebies. So I'd rather not go into that grave if we can avoid it at all... But, Link, this doesn't seem to bother you very much... Either you're very much in control of your fear... Or you haven't really registered what's going on here...

?Fine, fine!! King Gustaf is waiting for us inside that crypt! And remember, it IS the Royal Crypt, so show a little respect in there! Got that, Link?

?Sooo... Meeting a dead king means... He must have had unfinished business in the world of the living. He seemed awfully polite for a ghost. I expected...spookier, I suppose. What do you suppose he meant by all that "source of the flow" business?

?"The source of the flow"... In other words, a place that the water comes from, wouldn't you say? Now, ask yourself: where does all the water in Hyrule come from?

?We only need to find one more element. And while we don't know exactly where it is, we've got a good lead to follow! I'm sure we'll be on the right track if we find Gustaf's "source of the flow"! Let's go, Link!!

?Of course! The source of the flow! He meant Veil Springs! I wonder what lies up ahead... Well, we know it's connected to the element, so let's go, Link!

?What's happening to the source of the water? There shouldn't be anything but blue sky up there! Well, no point sitting around thinking about it! ... ... Hey, I just realized something. I'm starting to think...and talk... a lot like you lately! What's with that? I need to get my head straight!

?There must be something just beyond Veil Springs that leads to the element. We're just one step away from being able to lift Princess Zelda's curse!

?A world of clouds high above the ground... I feel like I've seen it all now! Link, perhaps it would be best if you didn't look down. One false step and... I don't even want to think about it!

?Nothing but clouds, as far as the eye can see! But there's got to be a clue to the final element's location somewhere! Keep those eyes peeled, Link!

?That tornado near Veil Springs took us to this cloud world! Can you believe it? I don't know what awaits us next, but I can't wait to find out! ... ... Hm? Hey, Link!! Don't get all scared on me now! Show me some spirit, lad! Let's enjoy ourselves!

?The people who live on the clouds must know something of the last element! We should certainly ask, at any rate!

?What is it, Link? Weren't we going to ask the wind folk here about that last element?

?We come all this way to the clouds, and we have ANOTHER building to explore? And what's holding that thing up in the first place? Link, walk very carefully up here, you got that!?

?Wow, a Palace of Winds atop a field of clouds... How elegant. But that's not our first concern. The monsters here are pretty tough. Watch your footing, and make sure you don't fall!

?So the last element is in the deepest recesses of the Palace of Winds... We've finally done it, Link! You know what you have to do now!

?Whoa! Maybe fighting the flow isn't what we're supposed to be doing here... Perhaps we should just let it carry us along for a bit. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em, right?

?Link! I'm overcome! We've got all the elements now! Now we can revive the sacred blade! You'll have Princess Zelda back to normal in no time!

?This will go down in legend! To think that I will witness the rebirth of the sacred blade! I can barely contain myself! Quickly! Quickly! To the elemental sanctuary!

?The king and the guards must not be able to see it... But the entrance to the elemental sanctuary is right in the courtyard!

?How...could he?! Vaati will pay for this! Link! Now is the time to use the true power of the sacred Four Sword!! You can lift the curse from each of these people, one by one!

?Hyrule Castle has fallen into darkness. This place is a den of evil for Vaati and his beast minions now... I understand your haste, but it may be wise to retreat for now... Just until we've prepared ourselves to face this challenge anew!

?Hyrule Castle has become a castle of darkness now, and I fear for the king. Link! You are the only one in all of Hyrule who can save those people!

?If Vaati is after the light force, he won't stop until he's drained Zelda! I doubt she will be able to survive the extraction process... Link! We must hurry to the rear of Hyrule Castle!

?We will get through this! We have all of the techniques and power you've gained in your journey! And we have your wisdom and courage as well! Link! I believe in you!

?Hyrule Castle has grown dark... Perhaps this repulsive scene... is just a reflection of the evil lurking in the heart of my former student. ... ... Ah, what have I created? But don't worry about me, Link! I know what we must do!!

?We have no time!! We must get to Princess Zelda!!

?What are you doing talking to me!! We have no time for this!! Let's go, Link!!

?Princess Zelda! Link and I are on the way!! Wait for us! We're coming!!

?Well done, Link! I knew you could do it!! Now! Let's remove that curse from Princess Zelda!

?Hold on just a little longer, Your Highness! Come on, Link! Hurry up and return Princess Zelda to normal!

?It's been a long road, but we're almost there. After all... The sacred Four Sword that you carry must be able to remove the curse! Princess Zelda will be restored!

?It's dangerous here! Link! Let's get the princess to the elemental sanctuary quickly!

?Now that Vaati's power is fading, this place is crumbling! Link!! Princess Zelda!! Watch your footing!!

?As soon as we take care of one problem, another one comes up! Link, I'm sorry to have to say this... But you'll have to save your joyful reunion with Zelda for another time.

?It's nice taking in the view from up here and all, but... I'm thinking maybe I should be a little higher up by now... What I'm trying to say here, kid, is... have you been drinking your milk?

?Hey, kid! Kid! Slow down a little! You seem to have completely forgotten that I'm on top of your head here! Man, I hate to think of how this is going to play out...

?ZZZZZ....... Huh? Whuzza--! What?! What are you talking about?! Me? Sleeping? That's crazy! Mmmmnumumummm...

?Yes? What's the matter, m'boy? What? You were just checking up on me? What's that about!?! You think I just sit on your head, waiting at your beck and call? I can't believe it! Grumble, grumble...

?Hey, kid! Could you lend me a hand? I've got a nasty back itch, and I can't reach it with my beak. Could you please scratch me right there? No, up! Up! OK, now to the left! I said left! ... ... Ohhh, sweet mercy!


? That's the stuff! Thanks, buddy! I owe you one!

?Hey! Hey! Stop twirling around like that! You're giving me the spins, kid!

?Man, I could really go for a nice, hot bath right now... Huh?! What's that?! You'd send me to the cleaners!? What makes you think you can treat me like common laundry, huh?

?Mmmmnumumummm... Come on, please... Just five more minutes... I promise I'll get up in five minutes...

?Mnyawwwn... I don't know why I'm so tired... I guess I just get a little bored sitting up here, watching you wander around.

?Do you have to ask me about every single little thing?! Just figure it out for yourself, you big baby!

?Oh, NOW you need me? I was starting to think you'd forgotten that I was even up here! ...I was starting to get a little lonely.

?Mmmmnumumummm... Oh, I couldn't eat another bite... Let's take the rest home... Wha--! Oh my! Was I talking in my sleep or something? How odd... Mmmmnumumummm...

?Ahem! You know, I don't take students very often or anything... But for you, I figured I could make an exception! Just a little one, you know.

?So hungry... Rrrrrumble rumble... !!! That wasn't my stomach!! It must have been the wind or something!

?You're so energetic all the time... Not that I'm saying you're hyperactive or anything! I meant it as a compliment! Like...you've got a special talent for being WAY too peppy or something.

?Hmn? Huh? Strange... I thought a woman was calling out to me just now... Maybe it was just my imagination.

?What's up, Link? What can I do for yo--GURRK! Owowowow... I jutht bit my thung! Don't make me thpeak... Jutht thort it out yourthelf!

?You know... I'm really suffering from lack of exercise up here...and I had an idea. Link, why don't you climb onto my head for a while?

?Hey, Link, why don't we just take the rest of the day off? I'm just beat, I tell you...

?Hm?! Sniff sniff! Sniff sniff! Do you smell something...weird? Oh! Oh my! I'm sorry, Link! You see, I... I... I hid a little eggy snack in your hair about a month ago, and... I completely forgot about it! Oh, dear... It's quite disgusting!

?You know, Link, your sword work really has come a long way. You remind me of a young me. When I was your age, I was quite a swordsman!

?You know, your hair's always really messy... A real rat's nest... As long as I'm up here, no one will ever need to know. You can thank me later. But I recommend seeing your stylist before you next meet Princess Zelda! Must look good for the ladies!

?Mmmmnumumummm... Mnn? A test? Oh, no! I forgot to study! Oh, wow! What time is it?! And what was I dreaming about just now? Maybe I should go back to sleep and try to figure it out... Mmmmnumumummm...

?La lala lala! What do you think, Link? Nice melody, isn't it? I just wrote it myself. I call it "Live Long, Love Long"! It's just exploding with fiery romance! Makes your heart soar, doesn't it?

?La lala lala! What do you think, Link? Nice melody, isn't it? I just wrote it myself. I call it "Live Long, Love Long"! It's just exploding with fiery romance! Makes your heart soar, doesn't it?

?Well, it's almost time to bring all of this to a close, isn't it? I'm ready!

?Link! What's the matter? Are you nervous? That's no good! We need you relaxed and ready! Take a deep breath and exhale slowwwwly... Just stick to what you know, and I'm sure we'll come out just fine.

?Link, I know this may not be a great time for it, but... I wanted to say thanks for everything you've done. I'm very grateful for-- Hm? What? You're freaked out? You're not used to me being nice!? Fine, then! Forget I said anything!

?Hm... You know, I hadn't noticed, because I'm with you all the time... But you've grown to be quite a powerful young lad. I just wanted you to know... Anyway, let's get moving, Link!!

?We make a fine team, don't we? Why, I might just stay up here forever! After all, I've grown quite used to my little "ringside seat" to all the action! And you'd never have to worry about combing that mess of a hairdo again! What do you say to that, Link?

?I planted a bean near my house, but it just doesn't want to grow...

?Oh, did you want to fuse Kinstones?

?You're ready to quit? Well, OK...

?Hey, our Kinstones fit! I have a feeling something good will happen.

?Did you see that? Man, that bean is really something, isn't it?

?There's an old lady in the back of the woods who loves mushrooms. I hear she's working on some new kind of potion.

?Wanna fuse Kinstones? Let's do it!

?Not interested...? Well, maybe next time!

?We did it! Wow! I just know my luck's gonna turn around now!

?So I hear that mushroom lady finished her new potion. It's bright red. That is one seriously nasty color for a potion. I'm not touching it!

?Have you seen that watery spot down to the south a bit? Is it just me, or is there something really suspicious about that place? I can't quite put my finger on it, but it weirds me out...

?What, you wanna fuse Kinstones?

?No? All right, then. Whatever.

?Hey, they fit! ...I wonder what that means.

?Did you ever check out that watery spot? Was I right? It was weird, huh?

?What is it? What do you want from me?! You're after my bean, aren't you!? Well, I'll NEVER tell you where it is! It's mine! Mine, do you hear me! Mine! But...I suppose if you can fuse a Kinstone with me, I might tell you. ... How was I? Did I sound like an elder? I've been practicing my elder-ese!

?Huh? You want to fuse Kinstones? Yeah, all right!

?You changed your mind? That's so selfish!

?Hey! A perfect fuse! Maybe we'll get lucky now!

?You're here to steal my bean, aren'tcha? Well, you're out of luck! It's grown way too big now!! Ha ha! Isn't my elder impersonation spot-on? Isn't it? He talks JUST like that!

?I planted a bean back there, but it just won't sprout...

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure, why not! Let's do it!

?You changed your mind? Well, I'll be here if you change your mind again.

?We did it! We're in for a run of good luck now!

?My bean grew! ...Kind of a lot! A little too much, actually!

?I planted a bean on that mountain to the left... But it won't sprout. I guess a metalworker like me just isn't cut out to be a gardener...

?So you want to fuse Kinstones? Let's do it!

?Oh, not interested anymore, eh? Well, that's a shame.

?What a perfect fit! You can't even see the seam! Impeccable work!

?Whoa! That bean I planted got HUGE! I guess I've got a green thumb as well as an, er...iron one!

?I just planted a big ol' bean... It hasn't sprouted yet, but when it does, it's gonna be a big sucker!!

?Huh? Oh, you want to fuse Kinstones? Why, sure! You got it!

?Whaaat, you're gonna quit? Well, come on back sometime, y'hear?

?Wow! Seein' how well that fit, I'd guess we're in for a spell of good luck!

?Hey, listen to this! You remember that big bean I planted? Well, would you believe it finally sprouted! I wonder where it leads!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure! Let's see how well they fit!

?Oh, you had a change of heart? Well, I'll be here...

?What a fit! Look at that! And you know what that means? Good luck for us!

?You want to fuse Kinstones, don't you? Well, OK! Let's give it a try.

?Oh, you don't want to? Well, we can try again later.

?They fit perfectly! I wonder what's going to happen!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Let's do it!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, we can always try again later!

?They fit perfectly! Things are starting to look up!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? OK, but let's be careful about it!

?You want to quit? I hope you come back, so we can try again later.

?Oh, they fit! Perfectly, in fact! They say that means good luck for us!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Let's give it a try!

?Oh, you want to quit? We can always try later, I guess.

?They fit perfectly! I wonder, does that mean we're in for good luck?

? You want to fuse Kinstones? Yeah, sure. Why not?

?Oh, you want to quit? That's too bad.

?They fit perfectly! We're looking at a whole heap of good luck now!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? OK! Let's do this!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, come back anytime.

?Finally! A perfect match means we're in for some spectacular good luck!

?You want to fuse Kinstones in this dire time? ...Well, I can see no harm in it.

?Ah, and now you've changed your mind. I suppose it is for the best.

?Ah, a perfect fit. My, but that's nice. Good luck to you.

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure, why not?

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, come again.

?They fit perfectly! I didn't expect that! Maybe something good will happen now.

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Let's give it a shot!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, I look forward to trying again later!

?They fit perfectly! You know what this means? Good luck for both of us!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Oh, please, please, yes!

?Oh, you want to quit? But...I was looking forward to it so much...

?Oh, that's so pretty! A perfect fit! Now, I know we'll get lucky!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? I would love to!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, I'll be here, so come on back!

?They fit perfectly! I feel a strange power within!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Let's give it a go!

?Oh, you want to quit? Lame, kid. Real lame.

?They fit perfectly! Time to celebrate!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Oh, Tingle is so happy!

?Oh, you want to quit? You're making Tingle oh-so-very sad!

?They fit perfectly! At last, Tingle can finally turn into a fairy, too!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Of course!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, whatever.

?They fit perfectly! We're looking at a heap of good luck now!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Very well.

?Oh, you want to quit? Pshaw!

?Excellent. A perfect fit! Now, where's my good fortune?

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure, kid.

?Oh, you want to quit? Too bad...

?They fit perfectly. Does that mean I'm lucky now?

?You want to fuse Kinstones? I'd be glad to! Thank you!

?Oh, you want to quit? Come again! Hey, hey!

?They fit perfectly! Oh, I expect my sales will triple because of this!

?You want to fuse Kinstones?


?Oh, you want to quit? Come again!

?They fit perfectly! This will be good for business!

?Must deliver the mail... Hey, that's a Kinstone piece!

?Well, I've got work to do, so if you don't mind...

?Perfect! I can feel the super delivery power coursing through my veins! Now, I return to my route refreshed!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? I hope they fit!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, let's try again later!

?A perfect fit! I can't wait to see what happens now!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? I hope they fit!

?Oh, you want to quit? Too bad! Your loss!

?They fit perfectly! But...nothing's happening!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Certainly!

?You're quitting?

?They fit perfectly. I guess we'll get lucky.

?You want to fuse Kinstones? You got it!

?Oh, you want to quit? Too bad!

?Hey, look at that! Nice work! I wonder what will happen...

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, let's try again later!

?Oh, wonderful! They fit! I'm so happy!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? OK-hay-hay!!!

?Aw... You're quitting?

?Neiiiighhhh!!! They fit! They fit! It's wonderful!

?What, you want to fuse Kinstones?

?Oh, so you changed your mind? All right...

?Huh... They fit.

?So you want to fuse Kinstones? I hope they fit again this time...

?Oh, you want to quit? I'm disappointed, Link. Very disappointed!

?A perfect fit! I feel a poem coming on! ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Er, yes. Indeed, indeed.

?You would like to fuse Kinstones? Gladly!

?You've decided to quit? Return anytime, and we will try again.

?A perfect match. We are all in for some good luck.

?Would you like to fuse Kinstones?

?You've changed your mind? Ah, well...

?We've made a perfect match! Maybe I'll get lucky enough to find a home!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Yeah, sure!

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, let's try again later!

?They fit perfectly! I wonder if we'll get lucky...

?You want to fuse Kinstones? I'm on it!

?Oh, you want to quit? Where's your spirit, man?

?They fit perfectly! I have... a good feeling about this!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Yeah, OK.

?Oh, you want to quit? Well, maybe later!

?They fit perfectly! Hm... I hope some good luck comes our way.

?Hn... You want to fuse Kinstones? OK, that sounds good.

?Oh, you want to quit? OK, that sounds good.

?Hn. They fit perfectly... So that's good.

?Rarf! Arf arf! You want to fuse Kinstones? Rarf arf!

?Arf arf! You're quiting? Rrrrrrrr ARF ARF ARF!!!

?Rarf! A perfect fit! Arf!

?Rowr! Would you like to fuse Kinstones? Mrow...

?You're stopping so soon? Meow... That's too bad.

?They fit! Perfectly! Purrrrrrrr...

?Mooooooo... You want to fyoooooose Kinstones?

?You want to quit? We'll try again later. It's not like I'm going anywhere! Moo...

?Mooo! A perfect fit! I feel so...content...

?Hey, do you want to fuse Kinstones with me? Well?

?What, you want to quit? Whatever! Just make sure you come back!

?Look at that! A perfect fit! That means good luck for us.

?You want to fuse Kinstones? I hope you've got one that fits!

?You want to quit? What do you hope to gain by doing that?

?They fit perfectly. Why...I can see my brother's smiling face...

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Yeah, let's see if they fit!

?Oh, you want to quit? Is it me...?

?They fit perfectly! Tingle would be so proud of me!

?Let's fuse Kinstones! I hope they fit...

?Oh, you want to quit? I see how it is...

?Wow. I didn't actually think that would work...

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Yes, please!

?Oh, you want to quit? What a shame...

?They fit beautifully! This is a sign of good things to come!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure, bring it on!

?Oh, what a shame... You want to quit...

?Look at that! They fit perfectly! Well, we're sure to get some good luck now!

?You want to--BRRKAWK--fuse Kinstones? Buckawk!!

?You want to quit? BRRKAWK!

?Perfect! BRRKAWK!

?You want to--cheep cheep!--fuse Kinstones? PEEP!

?You want to quit... You think I'm too young? Peep-peep!

?Perfect! PEEP!

?You want to fuse Kinstones? Sure, I bet we can do this!

?You want to quit? Well, I'll be right here, waiting...

?OK!! Now we get happy! See you later!

? Hey! How'd you find me, kid? You're a real humdinger! So, since you found me, I'm going to give you my number-one treasure! And keep up the good work!

? You came back! I'm so happy! I was just getting lonely! Except...I don't have anything else to give you. Sorry!

? So, have you met the Great Fairy in Minish Woods? She lives right off that little side path!

? And have you met the Great Fairy of Mount Crenel? She lives behind a wall that you have to break open with a bomb.

? What about the Great Fairy near the Royal Crypt? Have you met her? She lives behind a wall that you have to break open with a bomb.

?I found a--moo!--Kinstone piece in this delicious grass. Do you want to try fusing it with one of mine? Moo... I--moo--licked it until it was really clean and shiny.

?This grass is delicious! Moo... Want a nibble?

?Well done of you to get here, BRRKAWK! I have secretly taken possession of Ange's Kinstone piece! Hm? No, I didn't steal it, you rude boy! I just borrowed it...secretly.

?Wha--? The Kinstone piece fused and disappeared, BRRKAWK! Now, I can't give it back to Ange! But I'm still happy, BRRKAWK!

?Eep! One of the Minish! PEEP! I'm not like my brothers! I won't chase you around and peck at you! Peepeep! Not only that! I also have some good info for you! Somewhere in Hyrule, there's a Great Fairy who helps honest adventurers. If you see her, answer her every question truthfully! PEEP!

?h

?Wow... I just had the best idea! I can rent out my house for some extra cash!

?I'm feeling really motivated now! I could probably build a good-sized house in a matter of minutes!

?My special red potion will be ready in just a little while! Heeheehee!

?Hey! I've just hit on a great idea! This will add a little more risk! Heh heh heh! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get started!

?I know! I should start a newsletter! I can reach a lot more people that way. Hm. It's going to be a lot of work, though. I should get Marcy to help me.

?You know what would be great? A bomb that only went off when you wanted... Hm... Actually, I think I could probably make one with just a few minor tweaks!

?It's been a long time since I last visited Hyrule... I hope I can sell lots of Kinstones here...

?I don't know why I've been such a nasty little prankster all the time... All of a sudden, I feel like a weight's been lifted off my shoulders! I feel like I've made up for all my awful deeds! Haha! See you in paradise!

?I feel so much stronger now! Here we go!!!

?It looks like it's finally open! Come on, let's go on in!

?Hn... No, it's no good... I can't break it by myself.

?I feel like someone's calling out to me. Hello? Goro? Hn? One of my friends needs help? I'm coming to help you! Goro!!!

?Don't worry! I'm here to help you! Let's break through that wall together! Goro!

?Hn... That next wall looks a little tougher. I don't think we can break it. But that doesn't mean we're going to give up! Goro!!!

?I thought I smelled a buddy! What are you doing here?

?Hey! Give me a hand breaking through this wall! Goro!

?That's a tough wall! The three of us together couldn't even break it...

?I smell delicious stones... They're right on the other side of this wall.

?Can you give me a hand? Gorogoro?

?That's a solid wall. I think I'll have to wait for more help to come along.

?Oooo... I can smell deliciousness just on the other side of that wall.

?Oh, thank goodness! They finally came!

?Almost there... Goro! But it's still just not breaking!

?So, this must be that Goron cave I've heard about. We're here to help!

?Just in the nick of time! All right, everyone! Together now! Gooooroooo!!!

?

?A long, long time ago...

?when the world was on the verge of being swallowed by shadow...

?The tiny Picori appeared from the sky, bringing the hero of men a sword and a golden light.

?With wisdom and courage, the hero drove out the darkness.

?When peace had been restored, the people enshrined that blade with care.

?And the force of the golden light, embodied in Hyrule's princess, shone forth upon the lands.

?Heh heh heh... So that's what it means...

?[button]

?Good morning, Master Smith.

?Goodness me! Princess Zelda! Did you sneak out of the castle and come all this way alone? The minister is sure to be worried about you! You know how he gets!

?Oh, don't worry about him! He'll be fine. Where's Link? The whole town is bustling for the annual Picori Festival! I thought he and I might go together. Would you mind terribly?

?Oh, is that what you're here for? Well, Link was up late helping me last night, and he's still asleep... But I do have an errand at the castle... Yes, that should be fine.


?Link, time to get up!

?Hey! Link! Princess Zelda is here. She'd like to know if you'd join her at the festival.

?Yeah, Link. Come on! Let's go check out the festival together! Master Smith already gave me permission to take you!

?Yes. After all, the festival only comes once a year. Go on, have fun! And while you're there, you can do me a favor. I just finished making this sword for the minister at Hyrule Castle. I'd like you to deliver it to him.

?This is the blade that will be presented to the winner of the competition. Don't lose it. And while the two of you may be childhood friends, remember...


?Master Smith, quit worrying! We'll be perfectly safe. Come on, Link! Let's go check out the festival!

?Zelda is the princess of Hyrule. You watch over her. Don't let anything bad happen to her.

?Link! Over here!


?Come on, Link. Let's hurry to the castle.

?Link! Hurry! Let's go!

?Over here! Come on! Hurry up!

?Well, here we are! The town of Hyrule!

?We have a winner!

?Oh, my! Princess Zelda! You won the grand prize in our drawing? Wow! You get your choice of any of these wonderful prizes. What will it be?

?First, we have...this lovely heart-shaped stone! Next, we have...

?this magnificent gem! And finally, there's...

?this teeny-tiny shield.

?So, which one would you like? Let me guess...the jewel? Oh, but this heart stone is very cute, too. Choose whichever one you like!


?The shield is so adorable! I think I'll take it.

?What!? Why? Why would you want that ugly thing!? What about the heart stone! It's cute! Or... Or this giant gem! It's pretty! Honestly, they're both much nicer than that nasty little shield thing.

?Nope! I want the shield. Can I have it?

?What a strange princess you are. Well... OK. Here's your teeny-tiny shield.


?Here! I want to give you a present! Doesn't this shield suit you perfectly, Link?

?Yep! Just as I thought! You look great! Now, if anything happens, you can protect me with that shield! Oh! I almost forgot! We have to take Master Smith's sword to the castle. Let's go, Link.

?Oh! Link! You brought the sword, did you? Then, as minister to the kingdom of Hyrule, I, Potho, accept this blade. You came just in time. The award ceremony will begin soon.

?I'm sorry, Link, but I'd better go. I have to prepare for the ceremony. I had a good time at the festival. Thanks for coming with me!

?Since you're here, Link, why don't you join us for the award ceremony?

?Do you know about that sword, Link? It is called the Picori Blade, and it locks much evil away in that chest. The Picori Blade is sacred among the people of Hyrule. The legend has it that, long ago, the Picori gave us this blade. Whoever wins the competition earns the honor of touching the sacred blade.

?Let the award ceremony commence! Vaati, champion of the competition, you may approach the blade!

?Ah! Princess Zelda!! Wh-- When did you leave the castle?!

?Welcome to Hyrule Castle!

?Sorry, but we're getting things ready for the ceremony. I can't let you pass.

?Preparations for the award ceremony are coming along nicely.

?Sorry, but I can't let you pass. We've sealed the area off because of Vaati.

?Ah, the sword for the award ceremony! You should take that to Minister Potho. You'll find him in front of the castle.

?Heh heh heh... To think things would go this well! The Picori Blade and the Bound Chest spoken of in Hylian lore... This chest must hold that which I seek! I'll relieve you of its contents now.

?Mmmm ah hah hah hah! Do not interfere with me... As victor, I've earned the right to approach the Picori Blade... I've been waiting for this moment!

?Who are you? Why are you doing this?

?The princess who holds the power of light... That mysterious power is said to flow in the veins of every royal lady in your family ever since that day when it was gifted to your people. If I leave you now, you'll only cause me trouble later. That will never do.

?To stone with you!

?Link! Watch out!


?...?!? Empty? There was nothing in there but those monsters? What is the meaning of this? Well, I know the force I'm after is somewhere out there. I'm in no hurry. I can take my time searching for it. Heh heh heh...

?Heh heh heh heh... All who stand in my way shall share this fate! Now, to find out what power awaits me in this chest!

?Eeeeeeeek!

?It is as you have all heard. A man named Vaati has cursed my fair Zelda and turned her to stone. If we had the sacred Picori Blade, we likely could have broken the curse. But Vaati shattered the blade... However, I have not given up hope. What do you know about the Picori?

?The Picori? You mean...those thumb-sized little imps from the fairy tales?

?Yes, the same. But the Picori are no mere legend. They most certainly exist. No one outside of the royal family knows the truth about them. The Picori, who forged the sacred blade, live deep within Minish Woods. They should be able to repair the broken blade and reforge the sword.

?Wh-What!? Then we must dispatch the soldiers there at once!

?No, soldiers will not do. The Picori do not show themselves to anyone but children. Our soldiers could search for days and still find no sign of them.

?I see... If that's the case, then why not send Link?

?If Link has recovered, then yes, I would like to ask this of him. Please, turn my precious Zelda back to normal. The Picori should know how to create a new sacred sword. It will be a dangerous journey, now that those monsters have been freed. Please, take this sword with you, along with the broken Picori Blade.

?Very well, then. Send the soldiers to search for Vaati at once!

?Deep within the Minish Woods, you will find a place called Deepwood Shrine. Once, humans and Picori shared that shrine as a meeting place. I think it would be best if you started your search there.

?Take this map with you. ^

?Minish Woods lies southeast of the town of Hyrule. In fact, it's due east of your house, Link.

?Oh, Link. You're awake. Are you feeling all right? Stand at my side. The king of Hyrule is about to speak.

?I am counting on you, Link. Only you can break Vaati's curse and free Princess Zelda.

?If you get lost on your way to the forest, simply check your map. Just press START and then [button] or

to open the map.

I've marked the location of the forest for you. Good luck, and be careful.

?Oh, thank goodness! You've awakened! `

?Master Smith is here as well. He's come to see His Majesty the king.

?Please find a way to break the curse on Princess Zelda.

?Please be careful!

?Press [button] while walking to roll. This is useful when you want to move fast. Don't forget! And if you want to save during the game, press START and choose SAVE from the Items screen or the Quest Status screen.

?There are monsters outside the castle. If you see one, use your shield to defend yourself. Move in close enough to use your sword if you need to fight.

?Owwwwch! That must be the Business Scrub I heard the soldiers talking about. They were saying a Deku Scrub had been hassling all the passersby. Link, do something about it! Otherwise, we can't get to the castle. If only we had some way to defend ourselves against those nuts of his.

?If we could just defend against those nuts, I'm sure we could do something!

?I actually feel a little sorry for that Business Scrub. But that nut hurt! Oh, well. He won't be hassling anyone now! We'd better hurry to the castle!

?Where are you going, Link? Hurry up and do something!

?Please! Forgive me, sir! I heard there was a festival, and I came to town hoping to hawk my wares. Unfortunately, we scrubs have a tendency to spit nuts when we speak! Everyone got scared and ran away, and no one would buy anything! This is a terrible place to do business! I'm going back to my cave!

?All right! To the castle we go!

?Even turned to stone by Vaati's curse, her eyes are filled with life. Hurry... Save her...

?Helllllp!!! Help meeee!!!

?Ouch! Won't somebody stop them!?

?Ow! Ow! Help... Somebody! Can't anybody hear me?

?OUCH!!!

?Hey! Kid! You there!

?Ow!

?Hey! Don't just stand there! Do something!!!

?Ow!

?What's wrong with you!? Do you like watching me take this abuse!? Help me!

?Phew! Well done! That was close. Not that I couldn't handle them myself. But that's beside the point! What in the world is a lone child doing so deep in the woods?

?Ho ho! I see.

?The...Picori, you say? And Vaati?

?Vaati's cursed someone? What? The sacred blade?!?

?Is that so? I see, I see... You know, you and I have quite a lot in common. You see, I, too, am on a quest to break a curse of Vaati's. And you say that reforging the sacred blade can break his curse, eh? Well, then you have found yourself a companion, my boy! My name is Ezlo. It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance.

?Wait! Wait, I say! You walk so quickly! Too quickly, in fact! Can't you go any slower? Surely you've noticed that I have no legs...

?Boy! Take a good look at me! Do you really think I can walk that fast!?

?Augh! If it isn't one thing, it's another! You are a troublesome boy!

?_There! Now, you can't possibly leave me behind. My... It's quite comfortable up here. More comfortable than it looks, surely. And much easier on me! Hey! Quit your squirming! Can't you sit still? See! There... Yes, yes! That's it. Much better. Now, I suppose a boy like you still has much to learn about the world. If ever you need my insight, press SELECT. I'll be happy to help! Ah, such a hopeless child...

?Hey! Where are you going? You heartless brat! Help me!!!

?What are you doing? Aren't you going to finish them off?

?...What? Is there something on my face? Quit staring! It's rude!

?Oh, Link. You're heading for Minish Woods now, aren't you? Leave the monsters that Vaati freed to us, and go find the Picori!

?Minish Woods lie far to the south from here. If you get lost, check your map.

?Hey, kid! Where are you going!? That's the way we just came from!

?You who desire to enter the realm of the Minish, seek out the hidden portal. Offer up your song at the portal's base, and be guided to the world below.

?Hmmm... It appears we have found the Minish village.

?Pico picori!

?Ripi ripico picori!

?Picoco pico ripico!

?I gather it's been quite some time since they last saw a human. ...What's that? You didn't understand what they were saying just now? Ah, yes. That was the language of the Minish. It's a little different from the dialect I am most familiar with. I'm afraid I didn't catch most of what they said myself. But perhaps there is someone here who understands your language. We should look around.

?Fortunately, the Earth Element is in the shrine at the far end of the village. A horde of beasts lives in that shrine, though, so enter with caution.

? Oh! You speak our language! It's been quite a while since we've heard outsiders speak our tongue! We have little to offer you in these woods, but please, enjoy your stay.

?Thank you for your offer, but we have no time to relax. My name is Ezlo. This child is Link. We need to break a curse that has been cast on the princess of Hyrule. To do so, we'll need to reforge the broken Picori Blade.

?Ah, yes. And you've come here now to have the blade reforged? If you want the blade reforged, you will need the four elements. These are the crystalline forms of the energies that fill our world. Only by infusing the blade with these energies can a new blade be forged. Here, give me your map. I can mark where these elements can be found.

?The Earth Element can be found in the shrine to the north of Festari's abbey. Speak with Festari. He will show you the path to the shrine's entrance. Go with caution. Evil creatures have lately made their home in our shrine. Return to me at once after you have found the Earth Element.

? So! You have found the Earth Element! You are blessed with much courage and strength for one so young. If your conviction holds strong, head to Mount Crenel. There, you will find a man named Melari. Among all the Minish, there is no one more able to repair your sword. If you ask him, he will surely reforge the broken Picori Blade. I shall send word to him in advance. Travel safely. You are brave, but there are many evils now in the world.

?Leave through this door here. It will take you out of the forest quickly.

?Great elder, we are in your debt. We shall head for Mount Crenel at once!

?Come one, come all! See how many Kinstone pieces you can collect! You never know what fusing Kinstones will do, but it's sure to be good! Come on up and get your free Kinstone bag for holding your Kinstone pieces! Don't miss out on this incredible, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

?Yes, yes. You're here for your free Kinstone bag, aren't you? That's right! Maybe you didn't hear me, but they're free for all kids right now!

?Fitting two Kinstone pieces together is called Kinstone Fusion. If you get two pieces to fit perfectly, great happiness will come your way! I'll put a Kinstone piece in your Kinstone bag so you can give it a try.


?Anyone who's ready and willing to fuse Kinstones will look like I do right now. When you see that look in their eyes, that's when you press [button]! Use [button] to choose a Kinstone piece, and press to try fusing it! Did you catch all of that? Yes No

?Then stand in front of me and press

so we can fuse Kinstones!

?Where are you going? Stand in front of me and press [button]!

?Yes, yes. That's it. Press [button]! Then you can see the Kinstone screen.

?Hey! What's wrong? Press [button] so we can try fusing our Kinstones.

?A perfect fit! That means we're both due for a little happiness! See ya!

? Ting along, tong along! Dig along fer iron!


?Ting along, tong along! Dig down, dig around! Dig the ground fer iron!


? This mine belongs to Melari and us, his seven apprentices. Did you ting along, tong along, all this long way to get your sword repaired? The boss is down on the lowest level.

? Ting along, tong along! I'm hmm... Hmm... Hmph! Man... I really need to come up with a digging song of my own.

? Ting tong, tong along! Deep down, dig down! Dig joy in the ground!


? If you head outside from here, you can go see the mine the humans dug. But the boss doesn't let anyone go in there without permission.

? What? You're going to the mine? If you've talked to the boss, I won't stop you. But be careful.

?Ting along, tong along! Huh, what? Who am I? Why, my lad, I'm the second-best of the Minish metalsmiths! I'm makin' swords with the boss.

?Ting along, tong along! Huh, what? Who am I? Well, I'm no less than the third- best of the Minish metalsmiths! I'm makin' swords with the boss.

? Oh! You made it back safely! Fantastic! We were all starting to get worried. I think your sword might be ready. The boss was just putting the finishing touches on it a second ago.

?Ting along, tong along! The sacred sword is done!


?The sanctuary is a strange place that borders the human and Minish worlds. The doorway to the sanctuary opens only once every hundred years. I believe the entrance is somewhere in Hyrule Castle.

?Oh! Do you have a Kinstone piece? Well, come on! Let's fuse Kinstones!

?Oh, had a change of heart, have we?

?Oh! Yes! They fit together! A perfect match! It's such a satisfying sight!

?I dug up a Kinstone piece near here.

?Want to fuse Kinstones with me?


?Oh, so now you don't?

?Lookee there! Our pieces fused together! I wonder what it means... Maybe I'll dig up some really strong iron!

? Ting along, tong along! Diggin' holes for Kinstones!


?Want to fuse Kinstones with me?

?No? You don't want to? Fine. Whatever.

?Yes! A perfect fit! Maybe now I can be just like my dad!

?Y'know, iron's not the only thing we dig up around here. We've been known to find quite a few Kinstone pieces as well.

?Want to fuse Kinstones with me?

?If you find some more pieces, come on back. I'm sure I'll dig up a bunch!

?Incredible! A perfect match! I can't wait to see what will happen to me!

?Ting along, tong along, It's time for a sleeping song! The Ting Tong song can be sung only by full-grown mountain men! It warms the heart, doesn't it? Fills you with energy? Try singing a round!

?Want to fuse Kinstones with me?

?Let's fuse Kinstones again sometime.

?Whoa! They fused together! I'm gonna tell everybody!

?Wanna fuse Kinstones?

?We're gonna fuse Kinstones!

?Fusing Kinstones is a blast!

?Green clothes? And an odd hat?!? Sir! Might you be young Link? I am Melari, master smith. I hear you want me to reforge the sacred sword and help break a curse. I'll be needin' the old sword, which holds the power of the elements, first. Show me that broken Picori Blade! I love all this adventure, what with the rescuing of princesses and such. I'd be happy to reforge this thing into a brand-new sacred blade for you.

?It'll take me a while to rework your sword. In the meantime, you should track down the missing elements. One of them should be in the mine the humans dug. It's not far from here.

?All right! Let's get started!

?They'll be a while, Link. Let's leave them to it and find that element!

?I'm the Crenel hermit. I left the world to pursue a life of quiet reflection. You seem to be but a child, and yet you climbed this forbidding mountain alone? I must reward your courage with a little information. Have you not seen strange patterned walls as you climbed this mountain? Bombs! Bombs are the answer!

?I have an old Kinstone piece that I dug up somewhere around here. Do you want to fuse Kinstone pieces? Oh, yeah! Maybe later

?DEMO202022

?Ting along, tong along!


?Wow! That was fast work! But not so fast that I didn't finish your sword! Here, take a look! I call this new blade the White Sword!

?Once you infuse it with the power of the elements, it will become a sacred blade! The forest elder no doubt told you this part, but... If you want to infuse the sword, you must go to the elemental sanctuary. The sanctuary is a strange realm, trapped between two worlds. It is the bridge between the Minish world and the human world. The doorway to the sanctuary opens only once every hundred years! You'll find that door hidden within Hyrule Castle. Once the blade has been filled with the power of the four elements, you should be able to break the curse on your princess. I know you can do it. After all, you made short work of that human mine. Let me tell you about a shortcut you can use to get down from the mountain. You'll find it right in front of the entrance of the mine you just explored. Just follow that, and you'll be down in no time. Good luck!

?There's a simple way to get back to the foot of the mountain... All you have to do is go out through here and jump off the cliff!

? Interesting. You're the last person I expected to find here. And just as I was wondering who could be behind this, I find my old master...

?Vaati!

?éAnd, as always, you are dressed in... heh heh heh...the shabbiest of rags. My curses are not to be mocked. The one I cast on you is most powerful. No matter what power you wield, you will never break it.

?You haven't changed in the slightest. I should never have created that cap. It only fueled your insane desires!

?Fool! A hat that grants the wishes of its wearer is a spectacular creation! Thanks to you, I have gone from being a meek, miniscule nothing to... the greatest sorcerer alive! You cannot stop me now, and I have you to thank for it! Accept this small gesture of gratitude from me.

?Wait! Vaati, wait!!!

?That foul Vaati! What could he be scheming now? Link... I feel I owe you an explanation of what has happened. You see, Vaati and I are both Minish. I was once a famous sage and a renowned Minish craftsman. Vaati was only a boy when I took him on as my apprentice. But...he became enchanted by the wickedness in the hearts of men. One day, Vaati took a hat I made for the humans--my pride and joy. It granted the wishes of its wearer. He put it on without permission...

? Oh! What a vile form you've taken!

?Vile? I am a sorcerer now, and my power is beyond compare! None can stop me...

?Why, Vaati? What are you plotting?

?This year, on the day that comes but once a century, the portal opens. And when it does, I shall claim the light force as my own. I will be transformed, perfect, and there will be none who can stop me...

?GAAAAAA!!!

? Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Tell me, how does it feel, my sorcerer's curse? There is nothing you can do to break it, Ezlo! Or to stop me! And with that, I must be leaving.

?Wait! Why won't you wait?! Vaati!!!

?You know the legends, of course. The gifts the Picori gave the humans... What you call the Picori Blade was the first of those gifts. The second... Well, you call it light force, but it is a source of limitless magical power. If Vaati were to get it now, it would be devastating. I came to the world of men hoping to stop Vaati, and I met you in the woods. But it seems we won't be breaking the curse on me anytime soon. However, with the sacred blade, we can certainly restore Princess Zelda. I'm sorry. All that has happened has been due to my own pride. My folly. I must rely on you, on your power, until we've put an end to Vaati.

?Well, Link, enough fairy tales! We must search for the next element!

?Vaati! What are you doing?

?Eh? What a strange feeling. I sensed something from the castle's direction. Or...was it just me?

?Hm? Who's there?!? What? Vaati! How did you get in here!?

?Uhn... What are you doing?!?

?Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

?It looks like you're all here. Very well. The king of Hyrule has words for you.

?You all know of the power the Picori gave to mankind, do you not? The golden light force of limitless magical power... I want it!!! It is somewhere here in Hyrule! Go now, and bring me this power!

?Waste no time! Go forth at once, and bring me the light force! Fling anyone who refuses into the dungeon! Him and his family, too! I will tolerate no disobedience! Now, search high and low throughout the lands of Hyrule!

?Hmm... Maybe it's just the wind... But I hope nothing bad has happened. Anyway, we need to look for the next element. The map says it should be around here somewhere...

?By the order of the king, none shall pass!! Now! Begone with you!!

?Hey, you!! None may enter!

?I have heard that this castle has a secret entrance... If you ever have need of it, you should look for that entrance sometime...

?We are the Tribe of the Winds. Long have we lived with the winds. We have mastered them. Now, we join them. Together, with the great winds at our backs, we head for the skies. Those who come seeking our power must play the notes Zeffa teaches. May they lead you onward to the power that you seek.

?I do believe this is where the Tribe of the Winds once lived. Hm... So they've left for the heavens, and taken their element with them. It looks like the Wind Element is beyond our reach for the time being. We have no choice but to press on. Let's get out of here.

?Oh! Link! You have returned! And have you found the Picori? I see. And they want you to gather the four elements? Well, it seems I must rely on you once more if we are to restore Zelda. Please, you must forge the sacred blade anew, and quickly! I am counting on you, Link!

?Oh! Link! Tell me, have you been taking care of yourself?

?What's that, Link? His Majesty is in the room in back.

?Oh! Link? You have returned! Welcome. Did you gather the elements? What? A sanctuary, you say? Why, I've heard of no such thing in my castle!

?Hmmm... A sanctuary... You know, I do recall a story my grandmother once told me long ago. She said she saw a doorway appear in the palace courtyard as a child. If this door does indeed open only once a century, it may be open even now! As with the Picori themselves, the door is visible only to the eyes of a child. We might have walked past it recently and never even known it was there...

?A sanctuary? No, I think I'd have seen something like that in the castle...

?A sanctuary? Hm... The minister's fairy tales mention a sanctuary, I think...

?Link, look! See how that doorway glows? Could that be the door that leads to the sanctuary? Nobody in the castle seems able to see it but you and me... Let's go! Quickly!

?The doorway to the elemental sanctuary is in the castle courtyard? All we adults see is just another ordinary wall... Incredible! Please, just gather the remaining two elements and repair the sacred sword. I'm counting on you, Link. Never forget that.

?Oh, ho! The doorway was indeed in the garden? My grandmother was right! Well, my family has always been known for its honesty above all else. But I still can't understand... Why is it that children can see the Picori and the doorway, but I cannot?

? Vaati! What are you doing there?

?Wh-wh-what?!?

?... ... O young one... Child who seeks to aid the princess of Hyrule... My name is Gustaf... I was king of Hyrule, countless ages ago. Stand before me... Only then will the path open to you.

?Hmph! Was that...just a dream? He said he was a king of Hyrule. Wait! Look at your map, Link. There's some kind of mark on it. Hm. I guess that means it wasn't a dream! We should head there once we've infused your sword with that element. To the elemental sanctuary!

?$

?Hmm-hmm... Let's see if I can't read that tablet for you... Fill your sword with power and walk over the glowing tile... Hm... Perhaps it refers to those flashing spots on the floor around you. Well? What are you waiting for? Try it, Link!

?Hmm-hmm... It seems that forging the sacred blade somehow opened the doorway! It must lead to the room that holds the secret of the light force! Link, we must go inside!

?So, when that beam hits those who have turned to stone, it will turn them back. You've done it, Link! Now, you can rescue Princess Zelda.

?So this is the elemental sanctuary, then... This is where we can infuse your blade with the power of the elements... Yes, there seems to be a pedestal for your sword right in the middle there.

?Whoa! You just split in two! So this is the power of the White Sword! I guess you can double yourself like that anytime you see those panels...

?Hmmmm... This inscription... It says... Focus power in your blade and stand on the glowing tile...

?Hey, where are you going, Link?! We must go through the door we opened!

?Hey, Link, you've gone too far! Just step on those glowing panels!

?Hmmm... I'd bet this stained glass shows the location of the light force...

?Ah ha ha haaaa... Ezlo, you really are too kind. First, you give me my magic cap, and then you guide me here! You've been far too generous, but now, I no longer have any use for you.

?He ha ha ha ha... At last, I've found the location of the light force.

?Link! Wake up! Can't you wake up, Link!?

?Vaati disguised himself as the king to search for the light force. When he learned of this place, he waited for us to reforge the blade. And if that stained glass is accurate, Princess Zelda holds the light force! Vaati will do whatever it takes to steal the power from her! If he succeeds, we may never be able to return the princess to normal! We've wasted too much time, Link! We must stop Vaati!

?Ha ha ha! You ARE persistent, aren't you?

?Heh heh heh heh heh heh... So, you've come to stop my little ceremony. Well, you're too late. A mere three more chimes of the bell will bring the ceremony to its end! And with the third toll of the bell, I will become like a god! And your precious Princess Zelda will be nothing more than cold, dead stone.

?There's no time! Quickly, Link, to the roof!

?Did you hear that, Link? Hurry! There are only two chimes left!

?Another bell has tolled... Just one more chime, and all our work will have been for naught!

?Link! No, it can't be! The bell has rung for a third time!

?Hmph! Just a few more moments, and the ceremony would have been complete. You really are obsessed with stopping me, aren't you? Ah, very well. I have not yet drained all of the light force housed in Princess Zelda. But what I have should suffice... I shall be transformed! Unstoppable! But let me first attend to the pesky worms who would trifle with me...

?Hmph!

?éI will have no more of you interfering with of my plans! Let me show you true power!!

?Well, you seem to have some fight in you. I commend your bravery. But you will not survive...THIS!!

?Grrrrr..... I am filled with a power that you cannot begin to understand! Do you think that puny sword will save you from ME?!

?You did it! Impressive! Now, quickly! We must break the curse on Zelda!

?What... What is this madness? I have the power of a god! I have unstoppable might!!! How could I lose to a child?!?

?Link, thank you so much for saving me. When I was turned to stone, I saw visions of you, as if in a dream.

?Oh! That shield! I...remember it... You still have it? That's so sweet! I knew I could count on you.

?It looks like the curse has been broken. I'm glad we made it in time.

?No! The castle's collapsing! It's too dangerous here. Quickly! We must escape from the castle!

?Hrmm... The door is blocked! We have no choice... Head back to the sanctuary!

?So, Link! Now that you have the power of the Four Sword... you must return Princess Zelda to normal!

?Link! And you, Ezlo! I will not let you escape this place alive... Witness the power of Vaati's Wrath! I have transcended! I am all there is! Allow me to give you a taste of pure power, of unstoppable might!

?Heh heh heh heh... You will not escape, boy. Now, you will see the true power of the light force... For I have become Vaati, the master of this world!

? Fool! I... But the light force... My power... I had such power...

?Link, thank goodness you're safe... You defeated Vaati... You did well... But we've lost so much... The castle... All those people...

?What's happened?!? The curse... Defeating Vaati broke the curse he cast upon me!

?My name is Ezlo, master of Minish lore and sorcery. The mage's cap was my creation. But its limitless power has caused nothing but trouble for the humans. Is there any way you can forgive me? I know many have fallen, and much of the castle has been destroyed... But it is too soon to give in to despair. My curse has been broken, and Zelda still possesses some of the light force. Perhaps, together, we can do something.

?If one with a just heart wears this cap, things can be made right again.

?Princess Zelda! Let your wishes be known!

?Hmm-hmm! The hat is breaking apart! It's overflowing with the power of life! The hat has the power to turn the thoughts of its wearer into reality. Vaati's heart was filled with evil, and that was reflected in what he became. But it seems that Zelda's pure heart, coupled with the hat's power... has created a miracle!

?Hmm... It looks like the time for us to part has come. The Minish Door opens but once in a hundred years, and it will soon close. I must return to my homeland soon. I know I've caused you much suffering, but the evil one's power has withered. The power of Princess Zelda herself has restored the light to Hyrule.

?Well, Link, my journey with you was exciting, to say the least. In fact, I'm...more than just a little sad that we must part ways now.

?Please, accept this...

?Heh... You know, I've never actually seen you wearing a cap until now!x It suits you, little hero. x

?Take care... x

?Look! The castle! All the people who had been turned to stone! They're all back to normal!

?Farewell, my friend... x

?... ... O young one... Child who seeks to rescue my descendant, Zelda... Welcome... My name is Gustaf. I was king of Hyrule countless ages ago...

?I grant to you this Kinstone... Seek the source of the flow in Hyrule... Only then will your path open... Save Zelda... All of Hyrule is counting on you...

?Hmm... Fascinating! An ancient king of Hyrule? How strange... And the source of the flow? What do you suppose that could mean?

?Let fools tarry here while the true hero moves forward... The truth is not seen by the eye, yet it makes itself known.

?I love working in my garden. It makes me feel so close to nature... And sometimes, just sometimes, I dig up a Kinstone from the ground!

?What's up there, bud? You sayin' you wanna match Kinstone pieces?

?What? Not interested? All right, that's cool.

?Well, look at that! A perfect fit!

?Hmn? Hey, did you just feel the earth move?

?Thanks, pal! I feel like a lean, mean, earth-tillin' machine!

?Rock and roll! I dug up another Kinstone piece from my field! That rocks!

?Wanna fuse Kinstone pieces? Yeah, rock n' roll!

?Boo! You know what you get for quitting on me? You get a BOOO!

?Fits like a chip off the ol' rock! Oh, rock and rolllll!

?Rock, rock, rock and roll!

?Welcome to Mount Crenel. I am the Great Butterfly Fairy. I shall increase the size of the wallet you carry.

?The name's Mutoh. I'm head carpenter 'round these parts. The king of Hyrule has entrusted me with the town's reconstruction. This area you're standing in right now? It's a work zone! It's way too dangerous for a little kid like you.

?The name's Mutoh. I'm head carpenter 'round these parts. The king of Hyrule himself has entrusted me with this project. See, the recent earthquake tore this place up pretty bad. Listen, kid, you shouldn't be playing anywhere near the construction zone.

?So, that Picori Blade was just a lock keeping those monsters in that chest? The rumor is that Vaati was looking for something inside the chest... I mean, something other than monsters. But nobody knows for sure what it is. I tell you, he sure has been nothing but a big headache to the rest of us.

?We've taken care of most of the monsters out here. Be careful around Minish Woods, though. The woods are thick with 'em.

?Hooo! I'm busy, kid! The boss always makes sure we've got our noses to the ol' grindstone.

?Ahh! No time to talk, kid! The boss has us working our fingers to the bone! No time for a break, even!

?There have been a lot of creatures on the rampage lately. As a result, we're in a bit of a rush to get things repaired around here.

?That earthquake was something else! It really tore up the town, so we've got a serious backlog of work to do.

?Creepy... It's like all these monsters just appeared out of nowhere...

?I'm so busy! So busy! Gotta finish here, so I can go repair the steps next!

?Ah, we've got the Earth Element! You must go tell the elder at once!

?Oh, that was hot! It was so hot, I thought my fibers would catch fire! Ah, but it's over now! I suppose we should go back and speak to Melari.

?The element was not here, but at least we now have a clue to its whereabouts. You must use the Ocarina of Wind to open a new path. Well, there's no point in standing around! Go get that last element!

?Brrrrrrrrr... I almost froze my beak off in there!

?At last, we've got all four elements! Let's go revive the sacred blade!

?MYAAAAWWWN!! What a nice nap!!

?Welcome. Goro. Oh, what a tiny Goron you are... You make this big Goron happy with this unexpected visit to my distant home. And yes, if you should ever accomplish some major feat... Well, then you should come back and visit me again... Don't forget.

?Welcome. Goro. Oh, what a tiny Goron you are... You make this big Goron happy with this unexpected visit to my distant home. Tell me, little one, what do you know about shields? Well, among us Gorons, who know well the taste of steel... They are considered a fine delicacy. Ah, yes... Just once, I should like to taste a fine, fresh shield...

?Thank you for the delicious shield you gave me last time you came. I think of that flavor even now... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Sigh... Even thinking about it takes me to faraway places. If you ever find another such shield, you must let me taste it, please!

?Welcome. Goro. Oh, what a tiny Goron you are... You make this big Goron happy with this unexpected visit to my distant home. Oh! Oh, what is that you have there? Is that by any chance a shield? Well, among us Gorons, who know well the taste of steel... They are considered a fine delicacy. Little Goron! Please, goro! Let me just nibble on the corner, would you? I will give it back to you just as soon as I've had the tiniest taste. Won't you please just let me have a bite, a lick, a tiny crumb? OK! No! Gross!

?Welcome. Goro. Oh, what a tiny Goron you are... Oh! What's this!? You have another shield? Will you let me taste this one also? OK! No! That's sick!

?But, little one, if I eat it, you will no longer have a shield. Do you mind? No, it's fine! Uh, just a little...

?I see, goro. Then I will not taste your delicious shield.

?Really, goro!? Thank you! GORO! I'll dig right in!!

?Nummnummnumm! Slurp, slurp! Oh, delicious! It has a deep, rich taste surpassing even the great praise I have heard!

?Nummnumm! Slurp, slurp! Oh, delicious! Oh, just a few more bites, please!!

?Nummnumm! Slurp, slurp! Oh, delicious! That was excellent! Thank you so much. Now, I finally know the legendary taste of a shield! And I will happily fulfill my promise! Let me just spit your shield back out again!

?Goro goro...?! It-It seems your shield has changed shape a little as I was chewing on it... Oh, but it's fine! It is still a shield after all, just a slightly differently shaped one! I think... Well, I have to go now! Good-bye, goro!

?Green clothes? And a mystical hat?!? Sir! Would you by chance be Link, the one who found the Earth Element? Surely you are! I have heard so many tales about you. I am Belari, researcher of antiquities. I am also, well, a bit of an inventor. You know, you won't be able to get back to town, due to all the debris... Here, I have something that might come in handy.

?Let me know if you find it useful.

?So you like those bombs, huh? I still have some, so here you go.

?I don't suppose you know where the hot springs are, do you? My current experiment requires the water of a hot spring.

?Eh? Did you bring me some Crenel Hot Spring Water? Thank you! At last, I can complete my experiment! I must reward you!

?Well, back to my research.

?Wouldn't it be handy to have a bomb that blew up only when you wanted?

?I'm sorry, but I gave you all of my bombs last time.

?You've brought a Kinstone, haven't you? Let's see if we can fuse ours.

?Excellent! A perfect match! And I suspect this might result in an item!

?You know, we really ought to try fusing Kinstones sometime.

?At last, it's complete! The Remote Bomb! It blows up whenever you want! If you ever need normal bombs again, just trade me back for them. So... Want to trade for Remote Bombs? Sure No, thanks

?You traded for Remote Bombs. Press the button to use a bomb, then press the button again to detonate it.

?If you ever need a Remote Bomb, just say the word.

?You want to use normal bombs again? Just trade back those Remote Bombs. Want to trade for normal bombs? Sure Maybe later

?You traded for normal bombs! If you ever want to use Remote Bombs again, just come see me.

?If you ever want to use normal bombs again, just come see me.

?Tell me if you want to swap for Remote Bombs. I can trade with you if you like. Sure No, thanks

?Hm... I've never seen an outfit like that before. Are you a...human? Oh, my! It's been quite some time since any humans came here. My name is Festari. I watch the abbey, as well as the shrine to the north. You...seem to be having some trouble with our language, don't you? You could use a Jabber Nut. It will allow you to understand our tongue. You should be able to find one in the barrel house just south of here.

?You wish to go to the shrine? Very well. This way...

?Vile beasts have settled in recently. Be careful: it is quite dangerous.

?You retrieved the Earth Element from that fiend-infested shrine? Incredible! Humans are amazing creatures. The elder is sure to be amazed, too.

?So you're on a quest to restore the sacred blade so you can save the princess? Yeah, I'm sure you'll manage...

?So you've eaten the Jabber Nut, and now you can understand us? ...


?Sorry, but I know little about swords. I'm sure the elder can help you.

?Oh, Link. This must be the Jabber Nut Festari told you about. Well, you'd better eat it if you plan on making any progress at all.

?Pico riki poko ti po!

?So you've eaten the Jabber Nut and now you can understand us... The elder said that humans can no longer see us as they once could. It's amazing that you can see us.

?This is where we cultivate Pico Blooms. The Picolyte sold in the human town is made from the nectar of our plants. We sneak into town at night and leave it there for the humans to find.

?South of here, there's a house shaped like a barrel. Inside, you will find a Jabber Nut. If you eat this Jabber Nut, you will be able to understand the Minish tongue.

?We sneak our Pico Blooms to areas near where the humans live. Just having some of it makes you incredibly lucky. We're preparing for our next delivery right now.

?Ruff! Ruff!

?Honestly! Where did Dad go this time?!? I leave for just a few minutes, and he locks up the ranch and takes off!

?I lost my key, and I can't get inside. And the spare key's inside the house!

?What a pain. And I was thinking of going into town to sell Lon Lon Milk.

?Oh! Our one and only spare key! I don't know how you got this, but I can't thank you enough! Tell me your name, kid. Link? That's a great name. If you ever need to go to Lake Hylia, you're free to cut through our house.

?You really helped me out, kid. If you ever want to go to Lake Hylia, use the shortcut out behind our ranch.

?Thank you, Link. Now, I can finally get back into my house. Well, I'd better be going. I have a lot to do before I can leave town.

?Nayhayhayyyy...

?Well! If it isn't Link! I just finished milking our pride and joy. I'll tell you what, Link... Because you did us such a big favor... I'll sell you some milk at our special, friends-only price. If you ever need a quick burst of strength, just drink it up! And if you run out, just bring your empty bottle back for a refill! Buy some Lon Lon Milk for 30 Rupees? Sure No, thanks

?Here you go! Have some freshly squeezed Lon Lon Milk!

?Here you go! Have some... Whoops!! You don't have an empty bottle! Too bad...

?Drop in for a visit the next time you're in the neighborhood.

?Thank you very much, Link. Come visit us again!

?Bray-hey-hey-hey-hey...

?Moooo!

?We forest Minish are good at growing plants and making tools. The Minish Berries we grow here often contain items that please the humans.

?There's a weird guy outside the village who invents all kinds of tools. He came to the village a while ago. We thought maybe he was back for good. But all he said was "Got any milk?" Maybe he was thirsty or something.

?There's a weird guy outside the village who invents all kinds of tools. He came to the village a while ago. We thought maybe he was back for good. But all he said was "Got any blue potions?" Maybe he caught a cold...

?Sometimes it's a flower seed, and sometimes it's a stone. We hide our lucky items in all sorts of unexpected places. But the real trick is making it tough for humans to notice!

?Sometimes it's a flower seed, and sometimes it's a stone. We hide our lucky items in all sorts of unexpected places. But the real trick is making it tough for humans to notice!

?I've been getting better at disguising things so that humans won't notice 'em! I love my job!

?Wow! Good job finding this place! There aren't many people who visit me here.

?Hehhe! Great! Let's fuse now!

?Hehe! That's why I can't get enough of Kinstone fusion!

?Awww... Really?

?You've heard of travelers who find a Kinstone and get really lucky? Well, that's all thanks to items made by us Minish! You see, we thrive on making humans happy. It gives us energy. But we only do it in secret!

?You've heard of travelers who pick up a stone and find something under it? Well, those items were actually left there by us Minish! You see, we thrive on making humans happy. It gives us energy. But we only do it in secret!

?You've heard of travelers who pick up a stone and find something under it? Well, those items were actually left there by us Minish! We live for making humans happy, but we only do it in secret!

?Our ancestors, the ancient Minish, used the portal between our worlds. It brought them into the human world, and they settled in this forest.

?Our ancestors, the ancient Minish, used the portal between our worlds. It brought them here, into the human world, and they settled in this forest. The elder says our cultures have changed much since those old days.

?If you want to reforge that sword, you will need the help of an expert smith! Master Melari and his seven apprentices can help you. They live in the mountains, where they can find all the ore they need. I'm sure the elder would tell you about him if you asked.

?If you want that sword reforged, you should see Melari. He and his apprentices are skilled in the arts of metalworking. That's why they live in the mountain: so they can be close to the ore!

?So how was old Melari? And were his apprentices singing their usual work song?

?Pico ricopi picoco copi!

?There are so many monsters around these woods lately! The elder said that even the shrine to the north is filled with monsters now!

?You fought all the monsters and took the Earth Element from the altar? You humans are amazing.

?You fought the monsters all the way to the altar to get the Earth Element? Wow, humans are amazing!

?Do you know about Kinstone pieces? They're all the rage among humans now.

?Do you know about Kinstone pieces? They're all the rage among humans now.

?Do you know about Kinstone pieces? They're all the rage among humans now.

?Hey, nice clothes... I want to wear human clothes, too!

?I was born and raised here, so I don't know much about the outside world. I hear there are HUGE green monsters out there in the woods. I can't believe you made it through there alive! You must be really brave!

?That's it! I've decided! When I grow up, I'm going to be human! ...I wonder how I'll do that...

?I'm getting set to leave for town and visit some of my Minish friends there.

?We Minish live in Hyrule Town and other places, too--not just in these woods.

?Had you never seen any Minish before you came here? Really? That's so strange. We Minish live all over the place!

?We Minish live in Hyrule Town and other places, too--not just in these woods.

?You probably haven't noticed, but lots of Minish live right in Hyrule Town!

?Maybe I should just get out of this sleepy little town and move to the city. Or maybe I should go to the mountains. The folks out there seem to have fun!

?I received a letter from my friend who lives in the town library! I wish I could live in town, too...

?Hello! We're doing cutting-edge research on Pico Blooms here. You see that plant with the little bud? We're working on ways to improve it!

?I need milk to continue my improvements on this Pico Bloom. I wish someone would bring me some.

?Wow, thanks! Now I can continue my research! Come on back when this flower blossoms!

?My new Pico Bloom hasn't blossomed yet. Come back soon, though.

?Look! I succeeded in growing a Yellow Pico Bloom! It's all thanks to you! I'm so grateful for all your help!

?I am working on my next Pico Bloom enhancement... All I need is some Crenel Hot Spring Water to complete it. But the mountain is so far away, and I don't know how to get any. I wish someone would bring me some.

?Wow, thanks! This is just what I needed to complete my research! Come back when the bud blossoms!

?Look! I succeeded in growing a Blue Pico Bloom! It's all thanks to you! I'm so grateful for all your help!

?I am working on my next Pico Bloom enhancement... But I need a red potion to finish. If only I knew where some could be found. I wish someone would bring me some.

?Wow, thanks! This is just what I needed to make that bud blossom! Come back and see how it turns out!

?Look! I succeeded in growing an Orange Pico Bloom, thanks to your help! I'm so grateful to you!

?I'm taking a break from my research, but I have lots of good ideas. Super Pico Bloom... Hyper Pico Bloom... Cyber Pico Bloom... Which one should I work on first?

?Hey! What've you got there? Is that Lon Lon Milk? Did you bring it for me? Yes !NNo

?Hey! What've you got there? Is that Crenel Hot Spring Water? Did you bring it for me? Yes !NNo

?Hey! What've you got there? Is that a red potion? Did you bring it for me? Yes !NNo

?Oh, sorry then... If you change your mind, do let me know.

?There should be some Minish living here in this forest. Eh? Who are the Minish? Ah, yes, how silly of me! You humans call them "Picori," but they refer to themselves as the Minish! Strange how, in the world of humans, only this forest has kept the name... Anyhow, deep in the forest they built a tiny village, where many now live. But if we're to enter the village, we'll have to make you a touch smaller first. Look for a tree stump. Then, I can shrink you to the size of the "Picori."

?Hold on for a moment, my boy! We've stumbled across something important! The world of the Minish is very small. You're far too big to meet them now. Eh? Who are the Minish? Ah, yes! Silly me! Allow me to explain... You humans call them "Picori," but they refer to themselves as the Minish! Strange how, in the world of humans, only this forest has kept that name... Anyhow, deep in the forest they built a tiny village, where many now live. But if we're to enter the village, we'll have to make you a touch smaller first. Look at that. At first glance, it appears to be a mere stump, yes? No! That stump is a portal used by people long ago to adjust their size! With my help, you can use it to shrink down to Minish size. Just stand on the stump and press [button] to shrink. To return to normal, stand next to the stump and press [button]. Get me up there, and we'll give it a try.

?Welcome to the world through the eyes of the Minish! Now, aren't you glad you saved me? No need to thank me, though! Portals that reduce your size are all around, in different shapes and sizes. If you want to return to normal, stand next to a portal and press [button]. But there is one thing you must know: being Minish-sized is full of dangers! Mere puddles at your normal size are bottomless swamps to the Minish. And as your companion, if anything bad happens to you, it happens to me, too! So proceed with caution, my lad! If not for your sake, then for my own!

?X

?The swamp in Castor Wilds is bottomless...I say. To get across that swamp, you'll need to run as swiftly as the wind blows...

?A dark room settles my soul...I say. Do not turn on the lights...I say.

?Oh, dear. You found me out! Don't tell anyone!

?Hello. I am Percy, poet laureate of Hyrule. And you are Link? Oh, no, no! The pleasure is mine! I travel all over the realm, writing verse wherever I go. But here I am, returning after a long absence only to find the road blocked. It wouldn't feel like such a waste if I hadn't lost half of my Kinstone! When misfortune rains down upon my head, it pours in torrents! I think I may have dropped it in the inn I stayed at last night... I see no other course than to put these tragic events to verse. I see stars beyond the rainbow, But I cannot reach them. Though the stone I lost is small, Large was its place in my heart.

?My way home is blocked. Alas! And making matters worse, I lost one of my stone fragments in my travels. When misfortune rains down upon my head, it pours in torrents! I wonder if I dropped that stone fragment in the inn last night. I see no other course than to put these tragic events to verse. I see stars beyond the rainbow, But I cannot reach them. Though the stone I lost is small, Large was its place in my heart.

?Unfortunately, I only have one fragment. I'm sorry.

?Oh, my! That fragment looks just like mine! They might even fit together!

?Oh, perfect! They fit! That's it! I've got it now! The perfect verse! Apart or whole, These two are one. Two lost and broken halves, Like me and my beloved.

?Oh, dear! Link! Won't you listen to my verse? When I finally returned to my home, sweet home, a stranger was there! I'm an extremely shy person, and I just can't talk to someone I don't know! So...I had to put my feelings to verse! While I was gone, did you break in To practice your thieving art? Even if you rob my home, You can never steal my heart.

?Oh, my! Link! Thanks to you, I can finally go back in my house. It's been totally rearranged, but I think it's a good look! I've put my feelings of gratitude to verse... The way made safe, I came back home To find me inside, all alone. In my chest, my poor heart aches, But for you I feel the deepest thanks!

?What? You're going to quit? Well, come again.

?Oh, Link! Did you come all the way here just to fuse Kinstones with me?

?Oh, just a moment... My fireplace is entirely backed up with blue seashells. Would you clean them out for me? They're so...smelly. Please?

?D

?Oh! Are you the one who returned me to normal? Thank you! Oh, but listen... Have you noticed how strange the king has been lately? That's because that's not the king at all! It's Vaati! He's taken over! One after another, he's turned all the people of the castle to stone! Then, the monsters attacked us. Oh, what has happened to the castle?

?Link! We need your help! Vaati took our petrified princess to the roof of the castle... He must be planning something fiendish. You must stop him!

?The real king of Hyrule must be locked up somewhere in the castle... Please find him. As soon as we've recovered, we'll start looking, too.

?Oh! Thank you for restoring me. I feel so much better now! Don't worry about me. I'll be fine. Now, go help the others!

?Leave this to us! You go save Princess Zelda!

?Don't worry--we'll protect the king. You have to go save Princess Zelda!

?Gah! I hate to admit it, but we're just no match for those beasts!

?Oh! Link! Are you the one who broke the curse and returned me to normal? You've grown quite brave since I last saw you, I must say. But, oh, how this castle has suffered while I was under Vaati's curse... Is this all the work of one man? As king of Hyrule, I must do something about this villain... But... Ah, I'm old, and I would only hold you back. Link, you have the sacred blade now. We must rely on you. Please! You must find a way to rescue my Zelda. Take this key. You can use it to get out of the castle from the basement.

?If I were to join you, I fear I would only be a hindrance. Please, Link, you must find a way to save my daughter.

?Here we are, Link! Doesn't it look fun? %Come on! Let's look around!

?Link, there's a storyteller here! We should stop and listen to-- Oh! I wonder what's over there...

?So the Picori ARE real! My father always told me they were. Oh! Look at that!

?Say, wasn't there going to be a sword- fighting tournament at the castle? I wonder who won this year... Oh, wow! Over here!

?Link! Where are you going? Over here! This way!

?Welcome to the Picori Festival! They say that, every hundred years, the Picori come to Hyrule... And this is the 100th year, to the day, of the last time the Picori were here!

?Long, long ago, and then even longer before that... Evil creatures appeared in the world of humans. They were powerful, frightening beasts, and they created such trouble! But then the Picori came from the sky, bringing humans powerful magic. With the magic light force and the Picori Blade, the beasts were repelled. And the world of humans once more knew peace, thanks to the Picori. So as not to forget our gratitude, we hold this festival each year. Now, remember, little ones... The Picori only appear before good little children. If you only do bad deeds, you will never get to see them! So be good!

?I don't believe in the Picori! I'm not a kid anymore! I'm too old to believe in any stupid old fairy tales!

?Do you think I'll really see the Picori if I'm on my best behavior all the time?

?Come on up! Come one, come all! Gather round and have a look-see! I'm having a huge sale on all manner of delicious and festive vegetables!

?Oh, hi! Are you enjoying the festival? It's so much fun! I'm so happy to be here! And my fresh fruits are just delicious! Buy some!

?Come one! Come all! Try your luck, and win incredible prizes!

?Hey, guy, have you ever seen the Picori? I saw one just the other day! It wore a red cone-shaped hat, and it was really small... And it was standing inside my dad's shoe! I really saw it! I swear!

?So, so, so... I've been good all year? Like, all year long? And you know how the Picori only show themselves if you've been good? And so, so, so I'm just waiting for the Picori to come and play with me.

?Only once every hundred years does the mystic doorway open. This is the door that links the human world to the world of the Picori. When this door opens, the Picori can enter our world. And guess what! This marks the hundredth year since they last appeared here! I'm sure something wonderful is going to happen at this festival!

?Each year, there is a sword-fighting tournament at the Picori Festival. This year's tournament is already over. I couldn't believe how fast it went! I hear the victor was a mysterious man dressed entirely in black.

?They say the Picori bring happiness to all the humans they meet... I wonder when they will bring happiness to me...

?Are you enjoying yourself, Link? This is the biggest festival in Hyrule! If you don't stop to enjoy it, you'll miss out on all the fun!

?I've been on the road for a while. I came back in time for the festival. It feels wonderful to be back in Hyrule again, in this joyous time! I... I must put these feelings into verse!

?I love festivals. It's like seeing your town transform into another world! It really gives you a chance to think about how well we have it here...

?People from all over the place come to Hyrule Town for the Picori Festival.

?You're the boy from old Master Smith's place, right? I'm sure you know this, but he's the best swordsmith Hyrule's ever seen! Every year, I enter the tournament trying to win that sword of his. I haven't won yet, and maybe I never will, but the tournament was awesome! The winner this year was a new face. I've been wondering where he's from. He used some incredible techniques and won the whole tourney in record time!

?I've been dispatched from Hyrule Castle up north to watch over the festivities.

?I've never seen the Picori before...

?You two must be great friends!

?I'm going to look for Picori! Mom said there'd be Picori at the festival!

?I saw it! There was a Picori here just a second ago! No, really!

?This is my first ever Picori Festival! So...where are all the Picori, anyway?

?Day and night, he's going on and on about Picori this and Picori that! Doesn't he know they're nothing but a silly fairy tale to make kids behave?

?I'm just on my way back from seeing the tournament at Hyrule Castle. Let me tell you! Watching all those sword fights made me hungry!

?Phew... Preparing for the festival left me absolutely exhausted... Still, I'm just enjoying watching people have fun.

?Hey, hey! Come on up! Take a shot! Win a prize!

?My sister and I came a long way to see the Picori Festival this year. Is it true the festival's named after tiny people the size of my thumb? I want to see what they look like! Do you know where I can go to see them?

?Hmph! So, a Guardian is protecting the treasure? Take care while fighting it.

?My name's Dampé. I'm the gravedigger here. What's that? You were called here by the ghost of a king? That'd be the ancient king of Hyrule who rests here. I've seen him myself. Well, if the king has called you, I can't see any reason not to let you in... Here, take this graveyard key.

?What? A crow took the key and flew off into a tree? Well, don't just stand around! The crow'll get away! Charge at him and give that tree he's in a rattle if you want it back!

?I'll open the gate for you. Be careful in there.

?Left, left, left... Up, up, up... Dang! What's that last turn?

?You want to fuse Kinstones with me?


?Wow! Hey! Look at that! They fused! I hope that means business will be booming from now on.

?Hey, come back if you find another Kinstone piece.

?My name's Dampé. I'm the gravedigger here. What can I do for you? What's that? You say you were called here by the ghost of a king? That'd be the ancient king of Hyrule who rests here. I've seen him myself.

?What's with that crow? He up and flew off with the graveyard key! Charge after him and get that key!

?So, you managed to get the key back? Keep a tighter grip on it this time! At least now, you can get into the graveyard...

?In my youth, I was called Gregal the Great! I was even a little famous... But lately my limbs have grown heavy, and I can't even stand up...

?Goodness! We rarely get visitors here. Tell me, how did you get here?

?I can't believe old Gregal is sick. He was looking so healthy. I guess something just took hold of him...

?Nobody believes me, but I saw a ghost that has taken hold of Granddad!

?Once, my grandfather used something called a Gust Jar to fight monsters... He was a miiiighty hero, they say. But now he's sick in bed...

?What? An evil spirit had taken hold of me? And you drove it away? You... You might be right!... I can already feel my energy returning! I'll be able to get out of bed soon! What's your name? ...Link? Thank you, my boy. You saved me.

?If you're in the area, come by for a quick visit!

?If you find yourself in the area again, drop by and see us.

?Well, well, well! Look at how the color has come back to his face! How can I ever thank you? I still have a hard time believing he'd been possessed by a monster, though.

?Welcome, welcome. Long, long ago, and then an age before that... Our tribe abandoned the place you call the Wind Ruins... With our magic, we moved our palace up into the skies. We are the Wind Tribe. We have been watching, and we know all that happens on your surface world. We know a small boy collects elements to lift the curse from a princess. We know of Vaati and his evil acts... The winds tell us these things. The Wind Element that you seek lies deep in the Palace of Winds above me. When the blade has been infused with the four elements, the way to the light force shall open. So it is told in the legends of the Wind Tribe. Vaati himself may already know this. Surface dwellers are not permitted to enter our palace, but you are special. You may continue to the roof.

?There is a tornado atop this house. Enter it to go to the Palace of Winds. Revive the sacred blade and rescue the princess quickly.

?Oh, it's Link! Thank you for your help earlier! I've got something else good for you, so here, please take it!

?Ohh, if it isn't old Link! My quest to match Kinstones has taken me all the way up here. I'm not sure you've noticed yet, but we're on top of the clouds! The Wind Tribe lives here! They protect the path to the Palace of Winds, where the Wind Element lies!

?Well, well, well! Link! Thanks for helping! Because of you, my gramps is all better now!

?We of the Wind Tribe are very skilled at finding Kinstone pieces. So skilled in fact, that we have more of them than we can manage! We can't even store them all. I wish someone would take a few from us.

?Oh, it's you! I thought I'd never make it back here, but thanks to your Kinstone, I did! If you're looking for something, go talk to the elderly woman on the 4th floor. The winds carry all sort of valuable information to her.

?There is a device in the palace that allows one to fly in the sky. When I get bigger, I want to explore the palace and find it... But I'm too scared right now!

?Up on the roof, there's a huge whirlwind that can take you up to the palace.

?In this house dwell the people of the Wind Tribe. We left your surface world long ago. We protect the gate to the Palace of Winds, where the Wind Element lies.

?Although we are of the Wind Tribe, we, too, once lived on the surface. Once, the place you call the Wind Ruins was, to us, a home.

?Wahh! You surprised me! Normally, surface dwellers can't walk on the clouds like we do! My sister and I went to the Picori Festival in Hyrule Town, and when we came back, there were monsters everywhere! I bet if I could just fuse a Kinstone, I could call a good homeward wind... But there are monsters about, so I can't search for Kinstones. And even if I could, I still can't find anyone to fuse them with! But you look pretty strong! Do you think you could maybe search for Kinstones for me? If you do, I'll tell you about a good spot for fusing!

?Oh, this is bad. This is really bad... Oh, hey! Wow... Look at that! I've never seen a surface dweller walk on clouds before! You must be quite pure of heart! Maybe one such as you would listen to my tale of woe. You see, I went down to the surface with my sister for the Picori Festival... But on our way home, we lost the wind entirely! Now, we can't get home!

?I hear that Kinstone pieces are sometimes hidden among the clouds!

?The Picori Festival in Hyrule Town was really fun and all... But how unlucky to be stranded here, unable to return home!

?This is the home of the Wind Tribe. We left the surface long ago. Now, we guard the entrance to the Palace of Winds... ...The palace where the Wind Element resides. But...that hole you just came out of... Does that lead to the world below? Oh, it appeared after you fused Kinstones? That's amazing.

?T

?Oh, no! This is horrible! My cuccos have gotten out! Can you catch them for me? I'll help! 0No

?Please catch [#] of them within [#] seconds, please. And you can't go into buildings or leave town!

?Really? Come on, why won't you help me?

?Time's up! That's it!

?Hmmm. Well, it looks like I'm still missing a lot of cuccos... But thanks anyway! Maybe you can help out again another time.

?You have to catch [#] cuccos in [#] seconds! Good luck!

?You got [#] Rupees! Doesn't it feel good to help others?

?[#]

?Thanks! Here's your reward.

?What? What do you want? Why are you bothering me, kid? Huh? Oh, my name's Gorman. I'm trying my hand at real estate. Turns out, it's a total pain. Like right now, I'm looking for a tenant, you see? But the thing is, I can only rent to a woman, single occupancy. Too many tenants would make the place dirty. And they'd be loud. I like things nice and quiet, see? And this is all just too much hassle. 1If you find anyone who can rent this place, would you let me know?

?Oh! You have a house to show me? Yes 1No

?Oh! You've found me a house to rent? Yes 1 No

?Oh! You're showing me an empty house? Yes 1 No

?Really? Thanks! I want to go see it right away!

?Thanks! I can't wait to check it out!

?Thanks! I'll get right on it!

?Oh... Well, let me know if you hear anything.

?Oh, come on!! Well, you HAVE to tell me if you hear about anything good!

?Hey, why not?! Well, let me know if something comes up!

?I'll build here, I think...

?Nice house, huh, kid? It's brand-spankin' new, I tell ya! But I just need another tenant, a single woman, like before. 1

?Well, if you know any nice young ladies needing a home, let me know!

?Oh! You have a house to show me? Yes 1No

?Oh! You're going to find me a tenant? Yes 1 No

?Oh! You're showing me an empty house? Yes 1 No

?Really? Oh, and it's so nice and new!

?Oh, fabulous! And it's so clean and new!

?Whoa! Thanks! And it's a new house and everything!

?I'm sure I could build a new place here if I could get rid of these cats... Moohahaha!

?Oh, hello, Link. I sure do love it here. Thanks again! 1(

?If you ever need a charm, I'll give you another, so just ask!

?Oh, welcome back, Link. My, but you're looking so much stronger! If you get tired, just go ahead and take a nap upstairs in your room. I'm busy making swords for the guards to keep the monsters at bay. I wish I could do more, but for now, we need you to save Princess Zelda.

?Hey, Link. Every time I see you, you seem more and more confident! Say, have you been to Rem's Shoe Shop? His shoes really are the best. I'm sure they could help you on your quest. Why don't you give him a visit?

?Hey, Link. You're looking so much tougher these days... Say, have you been to the library yet? I've heard some kids say that they've seen Picori there... I thought maybe that would help you on this quest of yours.

?Welcome back, Link. I feel like it's been so long since you visited! Looks like you need to find just one more element. Say... Have you been to the Royal Valley, west of Hyrule Castle? You used to be able to get there easily from Trilby Highlands. Nowadays, however, you have to take a secret path to get there. I'm sure it was to the west of the northern part of Hyrule Field...

?Ah, I'm so glad you've come to see me, Link. You look like you've been just about everywhere in Hyrule, huh? But say... Have you been to Veil Falls? I hear no one has ever found the source of water that feeds the falls. So if that's where you're going, promise me you'll be careful!

?I'm so glad you're safe, Link. I hear that terrible things are happening over at Hyrule Castle. By the way... Have you been using all of the items you've found so far? If you get stuck somewhere, you'll need to try every trick you've got! Just try using everything in your inventory, OK? You'll sort it out...

?Hey, aren't you tired? Do you want to take a rest? Yes 2No

?What,you're sure? Boy,kids these days sure are full of beans... I'm all tuckered out, and all I do is ride around on your head all day!

?Ohhhh, yeah! That was just what I needed to get back in the fight! Let's go, Link!

?This is a really fun phonograph you can listen to. Care to try it out? Yes No Number [#]

?: ListenStop [button]: Change track [button]: End

?Just because you have a sword and shield doesn't mean you'll be safe! I can't let you go out there alone! Not until you know some sword techniques.

?Ho ho! So, you've learned the Spin Attack? It's still dangerous, but...maybe you can handle it. Well, let's see how you do. Show me that Spin Attack!

?Now that was a real centennial celebration! That festival was the best ever!

?I'm so lucky! That wasn't just any old festival. It was a centennial festival! It falls EXACTLY on the 100-year mark! There won't be another one until I'm... Let's see here... Yow! 118 years old!? Jeez, am I even gonna be around to see the next centennial festival? Ah, sure. Why not? It'll give me something to look forward to!

?The town is quiet enough, but past the gates, there are monsters everywhere! You should visit Stockwell's shop and get outfitted before you go out there.

?Lately, the woods have been filled with nasty monsters. Ever since the earthquake, things've been all topsy-turvy around here.

?Meooow...

?Rowrrr!

?Yeah! That's the one! But there are monsters out there, kid! You just make sure you're careful.

?There are monsters out there, kid! You just make sure you're careful.

?Buggedy-buggedy-BOO! Did I scare ya?

?Kids are just naturally scared of ghosts, you know what I mean?

?Arf! Arf arf!

?It's a lot easier for me not being anyone's pet. I don't have to wait around for meal- times. I just eat whatever I can find!

?Did you see the tournament!? It was incredible! I was out of my seat and cheering before I even knew it!

?I can't wait for next year's tournament! When's it supposed to be?

?Yow! I'm so excited! I wish my man were that big and strong!

?I mean, even I'M bigger and stronger than my sweetie!

?I really wanna play a game, but this place isn't open yet. I guess I just got here too early...

?This stall is kind of dirty. I guess that guy won't be setting up here today...

?Hmm... Nothing but fruits and veggies. What should I cook tonight?

?Hey, hey! Fresh fruit! Get your fresh fruit here!

?Come on up and take a look, folks! One whiff of these sweet and delicious fruits, and you'll be sold! Come on up!

?Howdy, howdy! Come get your fresh veggies, grown by Eenie and Meenie! They're fresher than fresh, folks! And they're good for you, too!

?Don't forget to eat your veggies! Everybody needs a balanced diet!

?I just loooove shopping! Oh, and I mustn't forget to buy some of that surprise-filled bread from Pita!

?Oh! I just remembered! I need to pick up a bottle of Lon Lon Milk on the way home!

?Hey, you wanna know what I heard? I heard that only kids can see the Picori!

?I wonder if we can see the Picori, too.

?Hey, I wanna see the Picori, too! Can I? Can I? Huh? Can I?

?Hey, Picori! Ho, Picori! Come out and play with us!

?I think the mayor is doing a fine job, no matter what people say!

?I won't say anything, even if you dig a huge hole in my garden.

?Aw... It looks like they're having fun in there. I wish I could play with them...

?I can't wait until I'm big enough to go to school and have fun ALL the time!

?Sorry, but I can't let you pass. There are monsters out there!

?We're working here. Sorry, but we can't let you pass. Sorry.

?Well, if it isn't Link! It IS good to see you again. School is in session right now, so I'm afraid I can't let you in.

?We're in the middle of a very important class right now, so you may not enter.

?There's an old legend that something big will happen when Hyrule's bell rings.

?Everyone is afraid of what it might mean to ring the bell, so they avoid it.

?I came to check out a book, but they're not open yet. Hahhh... Well, age brings patience, sonny. I can wait.

?The Swiftblade School in the south end of town is really awesome. The teacher, Swiftblade, has an amazingly direct teaching style. I wish I could train there...

?The Swiftblade School in the south end of town is really awesome. The teacher, Swiftblade, has an amazingly direct teaching style. I wish I could train there...

?Rrrrr...ARF ARF!

?Arf arf arf!

?Link{

?I'm sad that the festival's over. Now that everyone's gone back to their routines, it's boring around here.

?You know, I got pretty far in last year's tournament...

?Meooow...

?Rowrrr!

?Buggedy-buggedy-BOO! Did I scare ya?

?Awww, man...

?Arr! Arf arf!

?Not being anyone's pet sure does have its perks... I don't have to wait around for anyone to feed me, for one thing.

?What's that? You're looking for something? Some kind of light force?

?The king doesn't seem like himself these days... It's weird.

?Just what's up with the king, anyway?

?Man! I REALLY want to get in there and play a few games... I can't believe they're still closed! I'm not going anywhere until they open!

?This stall is all dirty. I guess the guy that usually sells his stuff here isn't going to show...

?To tell you the truth, I'm sick of fruit, and I just plain hate veggies!

?Hey, hey! Come on up and take a look! You're sure to see something you like!

?Come on up and get a good sniff! Smelling's always free! Hey, hey!

?Hey, hey! Come on up! It's got beta-carotene, people! It's good for your eyes!

?You'll never get big and strong without eating your greens! Hey, hey!

?I've never seen the king like this! He's so angry, so impatient! I hear he's been just horrible to the guards, too.

?Everyone in the castle is on pins and needles!

?I don't even know why I'm bothering to look for that "light force"... I doubt anything that powerful could possibly exist anyway.

?The inn's open for business now. They're giving away a special gift to everyone who stays there!

?Of course there's no light force here! What was I thinking? Stupid, stupid!

?We're in the middle of a very important class right now, so I can't let you in.

?Hello, Link. We are studying Hyrulean Literature right now. It's a very important subject!

?The legend says that the power of light was given to humans by the Picori. I wonder, does it really exist? I mean, it's not like anyone's ever SEEN it.

?There's an old legend that something big will happen when Hyrule's bell rings.

?But nobody knows exactly what will happen...

?I came here to check out a book. They're supposed to be open by now. I wonder what's going on...

?Not like you'd know, but...do you think it's safe to touch the light force? With your bare hands, I mean... Do you think maybe it burns or something?

?That little red thing is really starting to bug me. It's like a house or something.

?That little red thing is really starting to bug me. It's like a house or something.

?Rrrr...ARF ARF!

?Arf arf arf!

?Awoooooooo!!!

?Sorry I'm in your way! But trust me, there's an explanation here. I'll get out of your way soon. Sorry, sorry. Rarf!

?Everyone in this town is really nice.

?But really, why search for something no one's ever seen before? I mean, what does "light force" look like, anyway? The king's gone loopy.

?I'm really quite good at tracking down rare figurines.

?I've collected so many! And not just the normal ones. I've rare ones, too! But don't even think about asking me for 'em, because I ain't givin' you any!

?So, the light force is some kind of treasure that can grant any wish? The king must be looking for it so that he can ensure peace in Hyrule.

?Hey, you made it over, huh? I bet crossing that narrow bridge made you nervous, right?

?Doesn't that hole over there kind of bother you? I wonder how to get over to it...

?Ghosts are scary. That one's nice, but even nice ghosts are still scary. Aren't they?

?Thanks for coming. Hardly anyone ever visits, and it gets lonely here. Please take this.

?The view from here is nice. And Swiftblade's screams during training seem to complement the scene.

?Good job getting up here. Really. That's impressive. You must have really put yourself out to find a way here. Please take this.

?I wonder how I'm going to get down... Those cucco chicks just terrify me.

?[button]

?[button]

?You're always running around like you've got some urgent business. Why don't you just sit a spell and relax?

?You're getting pretty tough, aren't you, kid? Bet you're still no match for me, though...

?Meooooow...

?Rowrrr!

?Buggedy-buggedy-BOO! Did I scare ya?

?Sigh. I guess my heart's just not in it. Maybe I'm not cut out for this...

?Arf! Arf arf!

?Haven't you ever wondered why I'm always hanging out around here? Well, you see... I've been waiting to EAT you! Just kidding. Did I scare ya?

?I just can't find that light force... The king is gonna be SO mad at me.

?I don't know... The king's mood just keeps getting worse and worse.

?I haven't seen Princess Zelda in ages, and the king's just plain loopy! What's going on around here?

?This stall is such a mess! Does that mean Beedle's not going to show up?

?Don't they have anything other than fruits and vegetables here?

?Hey, hey! Lookie, lookie!

?Hurry up and buy something, or I smack you!

?Hey, hey! Cabbage and leeks, carrots and eggplant! Get 'em all right here!

?Wha--? It's so small you can't understand? Hey hey!

?What's going on with the king lately? He seems like...he's not himself...

?That river sure is fishy! I mean suspicious... But I can't quite figure out why...

?Hey, kid! Did you stay at the inn? Well? And did you get your gift?

?The king hasn't made any public appearances lately. And with so many guards surrounding the castle over the past few days... nobody in town has a clue what's going on in there!

?We're having a VERY important class right now, and I simply can't let you in!

?We're studying math right now, but once we're done, that's it for the day!

?I'm starting to think I won't find any light force near the castle.

?There's an old legend that something big will happen when Hyrule's bell rings.

?I'm too scared to ring it myself, so I'm hoping someone else will come along...

?Gah! Why won't someone hurry up and find that stupid light force!?

?Figures that the search for that "light force" isn't going too well... I mean, that stuff never existed in the first place! I'm just disappointed in the king. He should have known better.

?Figures that the search for that "light force" isn't going too well... I mean, that stuff never existed in the first place! I'm just disappointed in the king. He should have known better.

?Rrrrr...ARF ARF!

?Arf arf arf!

?Awooooo!

?Nobody even bothered to ask why I was blocking the way for so long... The people here are so polite, but they lack backbone, you know what I mean?

?Maybe I can get this dog to go out and search for the light force for me... Because I just can't take it anymore!

?People are getting really crazy about collecting those figurines... You probably don't know much about that, though, do you?

?You know what? I don't even feel like looking for that light force anymore.

?Aww, gee. It looks like they're having fun. I wish I could be in there...

?I wanna play games, too!

?It looks like the simulation arcade is open for business. Simon's here now.

?Nobody ever returns the books they check out from the library.

?Don't they realize that other people might want to read these books, too?

?I would love to have a figurine, too, but they're too big for me...

?I want to dive into the fountain! But I'm not such a good swimmer.

?Ghosts are scary. He seems like a funny ghost, but ghosts are still scary. Aren't they scary?

?Oooofff... Ahh, it's no good. I just can't get anywhere. Man oh man oh man...

?!!!!? You made it?! No way!!

?Thanks for coming. Hardly anyone ever visits, and it gets lonely here. Please take this.

?The view from here is nice. And Swiftblade's screams during training seem to complement the scene.

?Good job getting up here. Really. That's impressive. You must have really put yourself out to find a way here. Please take this.

?I wonder how I'm going to get down... Those cucco chicks just terrify me.

?Lately, Mutoh's been grumbling about how there's no work with any punch. I wish I could do something about that, but I don't even know what he means!

?I'm so glad the boss is back to his usual self. It just makes you grateful for the good times, you know?

?I can hear those schoolkids laughing all the way over here.

?You know, even this headband can be used as a weapon. A real man has to be able to do battle with whatever is at his disposal.

?Meoooow...

?Rowrrr!

?Buggedy-buggedy-BOO! ...Still nothin', huh?

?Yeah, I'm just about ready to hang up my sheet and leave the ghost business.

?Arf arf!

?I'm really good friends with that dog on the other side of town. We're nothing alike, but we still get along really well.

?There's a ghost in the well...

?This water feels good...

?Is there really a ghost in the well?

?I wonder what I should make for dinner tonight? Hyrule stew maybe?

?Tch! This stall is such a mess! Maybe that's why Beedle's not here selling his Picolyte.

?I wish we had a butcher...

?Hey, hey! Lowest prices anywhere!

?Hurry up and buy, or I'll pelt you with fruits! Hey, hey!

?Hey, hey! You buy, or I don't let you leave!

?What is this! I haven't sold anything all day! Hey, hey!

?I really don't feel like going back to the castle for a while. I'm scared, because people have said there are monsters INSIDE the castle!

?I just want to jump right in the river! But it doesn't look like I can...

?Kids are great, aren't they?

?Only a few guards are still out there looking for that light force stuff.

?There's an old legend that something big will happen when Hyrule's bell rings.

?If nothing at all happens, does that mean all the legends are just lies?

?Figures that the search for that "light force" isn't going too well... I mean, that stuff never existed in the first place! I'm just disappointed in the king. He should have known better.

?Rrrrr...ARF ARF!

?Arf arf arf!

?Awooooo!!!

?I'm the best stray dog in town. When it comes to begging for treats, I know all the tricks!

?Each of those figurines is handmade. Yup! Each and every one of 'em! I bet you have no idea how much they're worth. Hehehehe...

?There are fewer and fewer guards out here with each passing day... Where do you think they've all gone?

?I keep wondering how you get to the rooftop deck at the Happy Hearth Inn. There's got to be a way. Have you been up there yet?

?Not only am I a collector of figurines, but I'm also rich! Filthy, stinkin' rich!

?If you ever find a complete set of figurines, you should tell me. You...do know what I'm talking about, don't you? Well? Get to it!

?!? Whooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! You did it! I can't believe you did it! This is...a totally complete set! How incredibly awesome! And you even got the legendary Platinum Medal!!! It shines with a beautiful light... It's every collector's dream! What you've shown me here... It's just... It's just amazing. Here, feel free to go in my house and take whatever you want in thanks... 'Cuz, you know, I'm rich! Hahaha!

?Way to go, man. What an awesome day...

?When I run, the thing that I'm eating always falls out of my mouth.

?Yaaay! Yaaaay!

?I'm planting my flower bed.

?You've got to water these every day.

?It's OK to collect figurines, but if anyone starts calling 'em dolls, well... That would just be bad.

?I wonder if the force looks really big to Picori...

?That dog over there's not very friendly to strangers, but I like that in a dog.

?Good work getting here! I don't get many visitors, as you can imagine.

?Whoa! You made it here really quickly! You're full of surprises, aren't you?

?Thanks for coming. Hardly anyone ever visits, and it gets lonely here. Please take this.

?The view from here is nice. And Swiftblade's screams during training seem to complement the scene.

?Good job getting up here. Really. That's impressive. You must have really put yourself out to find a way here. Please take this.

?I wonder how I'm going to get down... Those cucco chicks just terrify me.

?Lately, Mutoh's been grumbling about how there's no work with any punch. I wish I could do something about that, but I don't even know what he means!

?I'm so glad the boss is back to his usual self. It just makes you grateful for the good times, you know?

?So you've actually seen the inside of Ange's henhouse? Hehehehe...

?Each town has its own life, its own rhythm! You know what I mean? I love towns with lots of rhythm! But it has to keep up the pace!

?Meoooow...

?Rowrrr!

?Buggedy-buggedy-BOO! ...So, umm... Yeah. Anyway.

?Wait a minute... I see now! You're so scared, you can hardly speak!

?Arf arf!

?I must look like a huge oversized monster to you right now, huh? Just be grateful I don't EAT you, pip-squeak.

?This feels nice...

?Yeah, this is great...

?Kids are the best...

?So, what'll it be tonight? We haven't had Tektite souffle in ages...

?Tch! Would you look at this mess? I'm sure Beedle could use this spot to sell Picolyte if it weren't such a pigsty.

?Come on now, hurry up and figure out what you're going to buy already!

?Hey, hey! Veggies makes the ideal gift, perfect for all occasions!

?Send a few of these as a gift, and make me a happy, happy woman! Hey, hey!

?Hey, hey! The other vendor's not doing so hot, but neither am I!

?My arm's getting tired, so buy, buy, buy! Hey, hey!

?Maybe I should get back to the castle soon...

?I give up. There's no light force out here. Man, am I tired.

?Kids are really the most wonderful things ever.

?There are a lot fewer guards looking for the light force now...

?There's an old legend that something big will happen when Hyrule's bell rings.

?That time may be coming soon... I can just feel it.

?It's tough work, being the mailman. I'm always runnin' around!

?Rrrrr...ARF ARF!

?Arf arf!

?Awoooo!

?Everyone here is so nice.

?I hear you've got a good chance of turning up some rare figurines... If you hand over lots of Mysterious Shells in one big load, that is... Hehehe...

?!? The light force! Man. That sounded impressive. If I find it, I'm gonna shout that so loudly!

?Kids are so innocent and simple. Well, until they grow up, anyway...

?I'm a rich guy, see? And I'm a collector to boot.

?If you ever find a complete set of figurines, you should tell me. You...do know what I'm talking about, don't you? Well? Get to it!

?!? Whooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! You did it! I can't believe you did it! This is...a totally complete set! How incredibly awesome! And you even got the legendary Platinum Medal!!! It shines with a beautiful light... It's every collector's dream! What you've shown me here... It's just... It's just amazing. Here, feel free to go in my house and take whatever you want in thanks... 'Cuz, you know, I'm rich! Hahaha!

?Way to go, man. What an awesome day...

?My food is coming up, I think...

?Yaaay! Yaaay!

?I have to tend the flower beds out back, too.

?Huh? This flower bed looks a little strange.

?Oh! You found me. You must be quite an attentive young man! Well, now you've got something to brag about to your friends. I feel I should give you something to reward your abilities of perception! Call it a "Master of Sur-Prize"! Good job!

?I have to say, good job on meeting me! Seriously, you'll be able to brag about this to your friends forever!

?Once you start collecting figurines, there's no end to it! As soon as new limited-edition specials come out, my eyes glass over, man.

?We tend to stay inside a lot. Don't want to get trampled, you know? Not that being stepped on would kill us, but it doesn't sound fun, does it?

?What's a ghost? Is that like a guest who's overstayed his welcome?

?You come here a lot... I guess you must like this place.

?Yellow is a rare color for us Minish. There's a good side and a bad side to being rare, though. Two yellow ones rarely ever show up in the same place, so they never meet up!

?Thanks for coming. Hardly anyone ever visits, and it gets lonely here. Please take this.

?The view from here is nice. And Swiftblade's screams during training seem to complement the scene.

?Good job getting up here. Really. That's impressive. You must have really put yourself out to find a way here. Please take this.

?I wonder how I'm going to get down... Those cucco chicks just terrify me.

?Lately, Mutoh's been grumbling about how there's no work with any punch. I wish I could do something about that, but I don't even know what he means!

?I'm so glad the boss is back to his usual self. It just makes you grateful for the good times, you know?

?There are so few people here now. I'm afraid something terrible will happen.

?Meoooow...

?Rowrrr!

?Buggedy-buggedy-BOO! Don't worry. I'm already looking for another job.

?Now, it's time for our rematch!

?Arf arf!

?Fewer people means less trash... I'm having a tough time finding food...

?Hyrule Castle looks so strange now. There are monsters everywhere... Even the town's not safe anymore. The people all stay locked up indoors.

?Hey, hey! It's a closeout sale! Everything must go!

?Clearance prices, people! What are you waiting for!? Hey, hey!

?Hey, hey! My mom'll be mad if I take all this stuff home, so shop up!

?Anyone want to trade for fruit!? Anybody? Hello? Hey, hey!

?What's happened to the king? What about our friends in the castle?

?The monsters will be coming for us next! We'd better stay inside!

?The castle's nothing more than a giant nest for monsters these days! Who will protect our town!?

?There's an old legend that something big will happen when Hyrule's bell rings.

?I think the time has come. The time spoken of in legends. I'm...moved beyond words...

?Tighten the defenses around the town! Don't let them in, no matter what!

?Rrrrr...ARF ARF!

?Arf arf!

?Awooooo!!!

?That kid over there in the glasses is such a weirdo... You could probably tell by looking at him. He's all right, really. I mean, it's just hard to hate a guy like that! Hehehe...

?My figurines! They're alive! They're moving! Hehehehe... That's SO cool!!

?This is definitely not the time to be looking for that dumb light force.

?It's so lonely here now... I wonder if the monsters really are coming.

?I'm a rich guy, see? And I'm a collector to boot.

?If you ever find a complete set of figurines, you should tell me. You...do know what I'm talking about, don't you? Well? Get to it!

?!? Whooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! You did it! I can't believe you did it! This is...a totally complete set! How incredibly awesome! And you even got the legendary Platinum Medal!!! It shines with a beautiful light... It's every collector's dream! What you've shown me here... It's just... It's just amazing. Here, feel free to go in my house and take whatever you want in thanks... 'Cuz, you know, I'm rich! Hahaha!

?Way to go, man. What an awesome day...

?Evacuation?! What a pain... But I don't want to cause any trouble, so I guess I'll just have to cooperate.

?Everyone's getting out of here. Will there even be a Hyrule Town soon?

?Maybe I should go hide in the cucco lady's house... It might be dangerous, though. It seems like there's danger everywhere.

?Hey, you came back? Not a lot of people are coming by anymore... Not these days. I guess that means you really like me, huh?

?We're under martial law!? Which Minish house should I go to? If I end up somewhere alone, they'll forget all about me! Oh goodness, oh goodness!

?Thanks for coming. Hardly anyone ever visits, and it gets lonely here. Please take this.

?The view from here is nice. And Swiftblade's screams during training seem to complement the scene.

?Good job getting up here. Really. That's impressive. You must have really put yourself out to find a way here. Please take this.

?I wonder how I'm going to get down... Those cucco chicks just terrify me.

?I'm so glad the boss is back to his usual self. It just makes you grateful for the good times, you know?

?P

?Some people still refuse to take shelter. I don't know what to tell them!

?Now that everyone's gone... I'm kind of scared.

?I saw something... Do you think it was a ghost? Or maybe...a monster? I'm not afraid! I'm going to defend Hyrule, no matter what!

?This used to be such a lively town... Whatever happened to this place?

?Hey, you! It's too dangerous to be just wandering around! Get inside!

?We'll protect you! You can return home safely!

?Maybe those monsters are why the king has been acting so strange lately...

?It's too dangerous here! Go home!

?We're shorin' up the town's defenses, so we'll be ready if the monsters strike!

?Hey, you can't be out here! Get back inside now!

?There aren't even any animals here anymore... What's happening?

?I'm a rich guy, see? And I'm a collector to boot.

?If you ever find a complete set of figurines, you should tell me. You...do know what I'm talking about, don't you? Well? Get to it!

?!? Whooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! You did it! I can't believe you did it! This is...a totally complete set! How incredibly awesome! And you even got the legendary Platinum Medal!!!

?The children are on their lunch recess. Playing is as important as studying! After all, a healthy body leads to a healthy mind!

?Hello, Link! We haven't seen you in school in a while! I'm so glad you came!

?I tell you, these kids are almost as mischievous as you are.


?Mmm... Chomp, chomp. We have to eat fast so we can have a longer recess! Chomp, chomp.

?Chomp, chomp. I'm always the last to finish eating... Chomp, chomp.

?Recess is almost over...

?Mmmmmnumnumnum... Zzzzzzzzzzzzz...

?I like reading books. I get to pretend I'm the hero and run around having adventures and stuff!

?You kids run along now, you hear?

?I have to see these kids off and get home myself.

?I don't want to go home.

?I looove school!

?Boy, when I was your age I was quite the little terror! I was tearing up opponents left and right at the Picori Festival tourney. Oh, I was really something back in the day... In fact, I still have a lot of the Kinstone pieces I won at the tourney. So I wouldn't say no if you were interested in fusing Kinstones...

?That green cap and green clothes... Are you...perhaps...a fairy?! Woohaaa! I knew it! I knew it! Tingle wants to be a fairy, too! Actually, I have some Kinstones, you know! Hey, Mr. Fairy, shall we try to fuse Kinstones? Do you want to? Do you?

?You know, I've given some Kinstone pieces to my brothers, too. If you can fuse pieces with all of us, Tingle bets something good will happen! Go for it, Mr. Fairy!

?Hey! Mr. Fairy! You've got some nice pieces there! Would you be surprised to know Tingle has a new piece, too? Let's fuse them!

?They fit! Again! That's two times we've fused our Kinstones perfectly! Say... I wonder if this will make me into a real and true fairy! It will, right? You wouldn't lie to me, now! Tingle Tingle Kooloo-Limpa! I did it!


?Hello there, Mr. Fairy! My brother Tingle wanted me to thank you for helping him out. In fact, he gave me some Kinstone pieces that you might want to fuse! What do you say? Want to try it?

?Have you seen Knuckle? He's my twin brother, and he's dressed all in blue. I don't know where he is!

?Have you noticed that some people will fuse Kinstones whenever you want? And some people won't fuse with you even though you have Kinstones? Well, that just means you have to be persistent and keep asking them!

?Hey, Mr. Fairy! I've been holding on to this, just like my brother Tingle asked! And I have Kinstone pieces! Want to try and fuse with me?

?All of us brothers look alike, but the one in white isn't really our brother. What I can't figure out is why he tries to dress up like us, though...

?Are you Mr. Fairy? Oh, yeah. Look at those clothes. You've got to be him! I received some Kinstone pieces from Tingle. He said I should try and fuse them with you, Mr. Fairy! So what do you think? Should we try to fuse?

?I'm not even related to that Tingle! So...why am I helping him so much?

?I have new Kinstone pieces from Tingle. But to tell you the truth, I'd rather be out adventuring, like you. And what's with these crazy clothes he makes us all wear, anyway?

?The real key to finding treasure is looking at your map constantly! Take a step, check the map! Take another step, look at the map again! I tell ya... All this talk is making me want to go on an adventure, too!

?This thing just won't break. We need more friends to give us a hand.

?Hn. This rock's too hard... My hands are starting to hurt...

?I wonder what's in here. Probably more delicious rocks, hn?

?It's nice to have my friends helping. Even if I slack off, no one complains...

?One more push! GORO! This is fun... I'm kind of sad we're almost done.

?Thank goodness! We're finally through! That was a long way to dig...

?Together, there's no rock we can't dig through!

?These rocks are delicious. I just want to stay here forever!

?It's nice having all my friends here, but sometimes...I can't tell them apart!

?You know... With six Gorons all here at once, it starts to smell a little...ripe.

?That Goron statue outside the cave is a little scary...

?Ah, so you moved that gravestone, and now you can go outside... But I would get lonely here by myself, so could you come see me sometime? I'll have plenty of Kinstone pieces ready, so please, do come back!

?Oh, you came back to visit! I'm so happy! I know this is a grave, but please, make yourself feel at home!

?My! You've got [#] left to go! Why, you've only just begun! The road is long, my friend!

?Oh, dear! You have [#] left to go! You haven't seen anything yet! There are tons out there still!

?Oh, my! You have [#] left to go! I guess you've seen quite a few!

?All right! You have [#] left to go! Just a wee bit more! Just a wee, tiny bit!

?You found them all! Way to go, Mr. Fairy! You can claim this Tingle trophy as your own with pride now!

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! You've only just begun your search for happiness, Mr. Fairy!

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! You haven't seen anything yet! There are tons out there still!

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! Just a wee bit more! Just a wee bit left, I say!

?We knew you could do it! You found them all! Way to go, Mr. Fairy! I can practically see my brother's smiling face now!

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! You've only just begun your search for happiness, Mr. Fairy!

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! You haven't seen anything yet! There are tons out there still!

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! Just a wee bit more! Just a wee bit left, I say!

?You found them all! Can you feel the happiness flow through you, Mr. Fairy?

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! Tingle is full of information, right? How does he know these things?

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! Still a ways to go! Sigh... If only I could search for happiness myself...

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! You've found quite a few. Maybe you could set a few aside for me?

?How many have you not found yet? Let's see...[#] left to go! Just a wee bit more! I'm getting all sad just thinking of the end being so near!

?You found every last one?! You are the man, er, I mean fairy, Mr. Fairy! Oh, I do so want to go on an adventure with you! I do, I do, I do!

?Mr. Fairy! You did it! You found them all! I understand that Tingle wants to give you something special now.

?Awwww! Woooo-weeee! I want a trophy, too! Please take good care of it!

?What are you doing here?! This is a graveyard! There are ghosts here! Oh yeah, speaking of which, my brother lives in Hyrule Town. He's a troublesome prankster, but I often wonder how he's doing...

?Holder of the sacred powers, we grant you the power of wind...

?What? What happened!? It blew up?

?That was too close, moo! I thought I'd be ground chuck for sure!

?I'm gonna eat a lot of grass so that I can make delicious milk! Oh, and moo.

?I'm so full! Mmm! Moo! But it's so delicious! I just can't stop eating. Moo...

?You know that puddle of water in the middle of the pasture? There's something kind of suspicious about it. Moo! Call it a cow's intuition.

?Nothing makes me happier than just standing around, eating grass all day.

?I've sold all my pieces! Yeah! I KNEW coming to Hyrule was a good idea, moooo!

?Hey! There's a symbol up there, but you're too short for me to see it! Well, no problem. I'll remember the spot...

?No matter how many times I see that happen, it still rattles me...

?Please! Buy Lon Lon Milk from me! If you don't my wagon will be too heavy on the ride home!

?STAMP! STAMP! Right to left...

?STAMP! STAMP! It never ends...

?STAMP! STAMP! Even if we hire more people...

?Do you know of any refined work full of vim and vigor that might suit my taste? You know, something with a bit of punch to it! That's what I'm after!

?Guffaw! Well, that was a lark! And I suppose it did have punch! Surely, I am the only person ever to have spent so little time there! Wahaha!

?What's that? I should stay in my house just because monsters are coming? Sir, you simply ask too much! I will go forth wherever there is work with punch! For I am PUNCH MUTOH!

?Oh, no... A customer... Why did I ever start a treasure game shop, anyway? All right then... Ahem... Welcome to a fascinating world of treasure, blah-blah-blah. In this wonderland, you can test your luck and win big bucks...maybe. I don't really recommend it myself, but whatever. It's your wallet.

?It's 10 Rupees for one try, if you still want to throw your money away on such a terrible pastime... I would really just save it if I were you... Give it a try BQuit

?Oh, good, good! It really is your lucky day! You don't have enough Rupees! I'm telling you, this gambling nonsense is no good. You're better off without!

?Right. Right. That's great. Gambling's no good, kid. You made the right choice.

?Ahh... Well, the prize is now up to [#] Rupees. If you keep playing, your wallet will explode! Maybe it's best to stop now. After all, you never know when your luck will run out and leave you broke. But...you probably want to keep going, don't you?! Yes, let's No, thanks

?Just open whichever chest you like. If you win, then I'll triple the amount of your bet.

?You've already paid the man. You might as well play his game.

?Congratulations. Your prize is [#] Rupees. You can go double or nothing if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it... Think about it. You already got a prize and everything. Don't push your luck. BLet's do it! BNo, thanks

?Ah... I see... Well, when you're ready, just open another chest.

?Right! I'm so glad you've finally come back to reality! Here's your prize. Now just go wait in that first room.

?Congratulations. Here's your prize of [#] Rupees. But I just want to warn you, the wheel of fortune is ever turning. You may think you've found easy money, but life's not always like that. What I'm saying here is...stay away, kid. Gambling's no good.

?Sorry, no prize this time. That's right. Gambling's not what you thought it was, is it? And don't think "Maybe I'll win next time," either. Wake up, man! Get out of here before you lose the shirt off your back!

?Ahh... He's finally opened up! I can't wait to get crackin'!

?How's it goin'? You winnin' much, pal?

?Don't get hooked on gambling. You always lose in the end... But people keep playing!

?I guess this is no time for games, really, is it?

?CTrade CDon't trade

?I collect those Mysterious Shells you've seen scattered all over the place. If you bring those shells to me, I'll trade you these figurines I have made.

?Ahh, is that a Mysterious Shell? Hm... I've got an offer I'd like to make you. What do you say to trading it for a chance at winning a figurine? COh, you don't have any Mysterious Shells on you? Well, please come see me when you do.

?Too bad. Come back if you ever change your mind, though.

?Oh, you're back. Well, you must have liked that last figurine. Do you want to try for another one? CWant to try another drawing? C

?Oh, hello again. I was hoping you'd come back. I made a new figurine, and I thought you might like to try to get it. C

?Ahh, you again. I don't have any new figurines yet. Would you like to draw for one anyway? C

?It looks like you already have every figurine I make. Do you still want to have a try? CAhh, thanks for coming. You seem to have won all the figurines I've made so far. Would you like to draw for one anyway? CHey, I've been waiting for you! I've got something new to show you. It's our final series, my friend. Check it out! Do you want to try to draw one now? C

?How many shells would you like to use in this drawing? The more shells you use, the more likely you are to win a figure you don't have. Probability Shells: [#] [#]

?How many shells do you want to trade on this drawing?

?You're going to trade [#] of them?

?CYes CNo

?Great. Now, just pull the lever on the figure-dispensing machine over there.

?Oh, hold on! You've already traded your shells away... If you leave without trying, you've just wasted your shells!

?Oh! Looks like you've already got that figurine. Too bad, isn't it? Well, I'll buy that figurine back from you for [#] Rupees if you like.

?Congratulations! I'll keep the figurine in the case on the left for you. You can see it anytime.

?I hope you keep collecting and decide to come back again!

?Wow! My friend, you've just gotten the last figurine in the machine. But I'll make some more, so please come back again.

?Congratulations! You've now collected all of the figurines that I've made! I'll keep a good eye on all of your figures in the case... Please, come see them anytime!

?No way! Congratulations! You've collected every single figure I've ever made! I'll keep a good eye on your collection on the shelf here. And here, I want you to have this! It's the Carlov Medal, to commemorate your copious collection! I hope you treasure it always!

?Are you curious about that machine? I can explain it if you like.

?That's a case for displaying figurines. No one's using it right now, though.

?How do you like that Carlov Medal? Pretty impressive, isn't it? It's proof of your super collecting abilities! Wear it with pride, my friend!

? Whuzza?! Oh, welcome! Welcome to Rem's Shoe Shop! Lately, whenever I take a nap, all my shoes are done when I wake up! DYou know, if I can make shoes in my sleep, I must be in the right job!

?Mmmmmnumnumnumnum...

?Whaa--! What is that terrifyingly bad smell!? A wake-up mushroom?! I should have guessed! So you woke me up? Thanks, I just remembered I have something urgent to do!

?And there we go... Here, take these. Those are my special Pegasus Boots! They're so light, you'll feel like you're practically walking on air!

?Ooh, I need to hurry up and get working on that special order... The king asked me to make some shoes for Princess Zelda, you see. Thanks for waking me up. Come back if I can ever help you with shoe problems.

?I need to hurry up and make those shoes for Princess Zelda!

?Whuzza?! Oh, welcome! Welcome to Rem's Shoe Shop! I must have dozed off again... Time to make the shoes!

?Thank you for waking me up earlier. Oh, say, you wouldn't want to fuse Kinstones with me, would you? I have a very special Kinstone piece!

?Come see me again sometime! If I'm awake, I'll fuse Kinstones with you!

?I know! Do you want to fuse Kinstones with me? I have a very special one!

?I'm really blazing away on these shoes for Princess Zelda!

??! Huh? What now?! There are more new shoes! You probably won't believe this, but... I have a strange habit of making shoes in my sleep! So you must have come here because you want some of my shoes, right? Tell you what: because you were nice enough to wake me, you can have 'em! Hold on a sec, though. I just want to finish this one last bit...

?Those Pegasus Boots will make you want to dash everywhere! It's really fun to run headlong into stuff and really shake things up!

?My Pegasus Boots are so comfortable! They'll make your little piggies squeal with delight!

?Thanks for wearing my shoes with such pride, valued customer!

?Hey, hey! You're Link, right? You're the one who brought the sword to Master Melari! You're on a quest to help the princess, aren't you? I wish I could go on a quest, but then who'd make Rem's shoes for him?

?Ho, ho! You need Pegasus Boots? Why, you're just in time! We made a pair just now while Rem was sleeping. But only Rem can put the finishing touches on them...

?Ha, ha! That sleepyhead Rem is nearly impossible to wake up... If you want to wake him, you'll need to get an item from Syrup's hut. It's a little bit of a trek, but we'll mark it on your map for you.

?Hey, hey! Rem has some other urgent business he should be working on... So please, wake him up as soon as you can! Time's a-wastin'!

?Ho, ho! We've done all we can with these shoes. You'll need to go to Syrup's hut so Rem can put on the finishing touches.

?Ha, ha! Syrup's hut is north of the Minish Woods. Just check your map.

?I'll make you shoes! So why don't you come back later?

?The magic hag may have something good.

?Sometimes we help him make shoes.

?Hi there, and welcome to the Happy Hearth! Need a rest, kid? Well, we can take care of that--and even throw in a present to boot! EForget it [#] Rupee room [#] Rupee room [#] Rupee room

?...Right. [#] Rupees. The cheap room it is, then. ELinkYessir! [#] Rupees gets you a regular room! ELinkWell now! Come from a good family, do we? A luxury room for [#] Rupees! ELinkAll payment up front, please!

?What's this?! Son, you've got no cash! Come back when you grow up and get a job! Now off with you! Shoo!

?Thanks! Enjoy your stay!

?Ho, now! You don't want to stay? Well, come again!

?That's the exit! Enjoy your stay!

?And how was your stay? Did you find your present? Please come again!

?It seems you really get what you pay for here...

?But I guess you don't really know the difference until you try each room...

?Hey, what do you know about that light force stuff? People are saying it's some kind of treasure that can grant you any wish. Anyway, now the king's in a big huff trying to find it. It's strange, though. He never struck me as the greedy type before. It's almost like he's a different person now...

?What's with the king lately? He was never like that before...

?Yaaay! Yaaay!

?Waaait!

?Hey!!! Wait up!

?It's so nice to be here at last! And such a big town it is!

?Staying in this inn forever would start to be a bother...

?We need to find a nice, quiet place where we can settle down.

?The king is just terrible lately! Things are going crazy around here! Would you believe a guard came into my house the other day? It's true! And get this! He demanded that I give him some kind of "force"!

?Normal people can't enter the Royal Valley. There's a cryptic forest that leads into it, and people get lost there. The secret to finding your way through is reading all the signs! You'll never make it unless you read each one carefully.

?You want to go to the tomb of King Gustaf of Hyrule? Then you'd probably better talk to Dampé. He's the gravedigger at the cemetery. Nobody knows the Royal Crypt better!

?Have you stayed in the best room yet? I'm trying to figure out where to stay.

?The source of water in Hyrule? You must mean the spring at Veil Falls. That's where all our water comes from.

?I can't say this in front of the kids... I don't want to alarm them, you know? But...Hyrule Castle has been looking pretty weird lately. I can't say exactly what it is, though. It's just...different. Strange.

?I saw it! I saw it with my own two eyes! There were monsters inside of Hyrule Castle! I've heard rumors that some people who went to the castle never came back!

?School let out early today! Lucky!


?Hey! Wait up! Wait for me!

?I've got no choice. I guess I'll take shelter here... I know I can hold my own, but those are some fierce monsters out there...

?My mom's a wife, not a wolf.

?My mom's a wife, not a fife!

?I can't believe she found a place! I am so jealous.

?Maybe I should go pay her a visit sometime.

?Things just aren't the same around here now that it's just the two of us.

?I hate being here all alone! I wish I could find a nice place to live, like the others did...

?It's no fun being here alone. I wish I could find a nice house, too.

?If you hear about any places for rent, you'll let me know, right? You promise?

?Would you like to fuse Kinstones with me?

?You don't want to? You don't even want to try?

?We did it! They fit perfectly! You know what that means? Good luck for us!

?I found some amazingly rare Kinstone pieces! At least, I think they're rare!

?Oh?! You want to fuse pieces? Yay!

?You don't want to try?

?Look at that! A perfect match! I can't wait to see what happens!

?Hmmm... I found a Kinstone piece over there. I've never seen anything like it. It must be a really rare one...

?You want to fuse pieces? Do you think you have one that matches mine?

?Mmmm... I guess it's hard to find a match for such a rare piece...

?Hmm! It fits perfectly! How could you have a piece that fits my ultra-rare one so well!?

?I think this is a really rare Kinstone piece!

?Hey, look at this Kinstone piece! Have you ever seen one like this? What? You don't know what a Kinstone piece is? Well, tell you what... Why don't you come back and see me when you get one, OK?

?What's that? You want to fuse Kinstone pieces with me?

?I guess it's hard to find a match for such a rare piece...

?Whaa! It fits! You must have had a really rare piece, too!

?What? You don't know what a Kinstone piece is? Well, tell you what... Why don't you come back and see me when you get one, OK?

?A visitor! How rare... I don't have much to offer, but you're welcome to stay.

?What's that? You want to fuse Kinstone pieces with me? Sure.

?You're quitting?

?We did it! They fit perfectly! Maybe I'll get some luck finally!

?You moved the rock for me? Great! I thought I'd never get outside!

?Oh, you want to fuse with me? Now let's see here...

?I guess it'll be a while before I find a piece that fits this one...

?Look! They fit! How lucky! Amazing, even!

?What's your problem? Mmmm! You're staring at my amazingly rare Kinstone piece, aren't you?!

?How dare you! You want to fuse my precious Kinstone piece?!

?Phew... Sweet little Kinstone piece. It's OK. No one's gonna hurt you...


?Ahh... They fit... My poor little Kinstone piece...

?Hey! Your clothes... You must be human! Oh, I just LOVE human fashion! I just can't help feeling that humans are more sophisticated than Minish. You know, I even think some other Minish feel that way, too...

?Water is life for Crenel Beans! The blue beans grow when you pour water on them... But the green beans like Crenel Hot Spring Water. Crenel Hot Spring Water can be found only in a spring on Mount Crenel. Well, really, the spring is closer to the base of Mount Crenel.

?These iron automata here were built by the Minish ages ago to help humans. It's kind of a secret, but there's a switch inside that turns them on or off.

?Go get the Flippers from the Minish elder who lives in the library. They'll make it so you can swim through the water with ease.

?Can you solve my riddle? Splish, splash, the sound of water. He lives in the answer house. I wonder if you'll meet my friend?

?A fearsome, unfriendly feline... The answer lives here! You did well to come this far. Please take this.

?Man, woman, or middle? He lives in the answer house. I wonder if you'll meet my friend?

?That meow is mighty! He lives in the answer house. I wonder if you'll meet my friend?

?I gave you my last Kinstone piece a while ago! But I'll go look for more.

?$

?Oh, ho! A visitor! How rare! But you have found me, the wisest of the wisest of the wise! You what? You want to enter the Temple of Droplets? I have heard rumors that one Minish actually did find a way in, long ago... That Minish is Elder Librari, and he is in semi-retirement in the town library. The library should be opening soon. Perhaps you can go find him.

?Yes, the elder Librari once found an entrance to the Temple of Droplets. And now, he lives in the town library! And this is all the wisdom of the wisest of the wise I have to offer you!

?So you met with elder Librari?! And he said that he really HAS been inside of the Temple of Droplets? I knew it! Once again, my wisdom has surpassed the wisdom of the wisest!

?I have lots of wise and thought- provoking information... But nothing for you right now.

?Hello! How nice to have a visitor! But...I'm having some trouble! They've changed the room around, and now I can't get into the fireplace!

?They've changed the room around! It's terrible now! So gauche!

?Thank you! Now I can climb in through the fireplace and get some sleep!

?Welcome to the library! Say, aren't you Smith's grandson, Link? Hm? The books missing from the bookshelf on the second floor? Yes, they've been checked out for quite a while. They're VERY overdue! I


?Take A Hyrulean Bestiary, for example. Been gone for ages. Checked out by a girl with a cat. She said she had a new cat at her house. Wanted to learn more about it, she did.

?The next overdue book is... Let's see... Ah, yes! Of course...Legend of the Picori! It's been out forever! It was checked out by a somewhat absentminded scholar, I believe...

?And the last book we still need is A History of Masks. I think it was checked out by Hagen, the mayor. How could he keep a library book so long! He's a public official!

?Hey! Look at that! Our long-lost copy of A Hyrulean Bestiary! Link, are you returning this book?! Thank you so much! I can't begin to describe how much I'm looking forward to putting this back!

?Oh my goodness, will you look at that! It's our copy of Legend of the Picori! It's been checked out for so long! Link, you deserve a medal for all this! I am moved... Deeply, deeply moved by this thoughtful gesture!

?Would you look at that! I can't believe it! It's our copy of A History of Masks! That mayor of ours is a real piece of work, isn't he? It must have been quite a challenge to get this back from him. You are my new favorite person, Link! Thank you so much!

?You know, Link, you've now returned all of our overdue books! Now I can finally get that bookshelf on the second floor in order! Hey, Sturgeon! Books to shelve!!

?Yo, yo! Here I am! Leave it to me!!

?Sometimes, these books move on their own! I've seen it! An' don't tell me I'm crazy! I ain't crazy!

?Say, Sturgeon, on the second floor, has been acting a little strangely. He keeps babbling about the books moving by themselves! Do you think maybe we have rats or something up there?

?I'm in charge of checking out books, so it's not my problem. Still, I feel really bad for the girl over there in charge of returns...

?Folks don't come up here so often, and it makes me a little lonely, ya know?

?Welcome to the library! Hey! Aren't you Smith's grandson, Link? Enjoy your browsing!

?The bookshelves are back in order! I feel so...refreshed! Renewed! Enjoy your browsing!

?Wonder what I should check out today.

?Oh ho ho! All the books are back on the shelves! Isn't it grand!

?Hey, hey, hey! This is no good! No good at all! A human borrowed a book, and now none of us can get back to Elder Librari! How will he get by all alone? I'm so worried... I'm sure the librarian knows something about where those books went... But there's nothing we wee Minish can do about it!

?Hey, hey, hey! Listen up! Listen good! That book is back now! It's true! It's true! Haha! Now we can get back to Elder Librari! So you brought the books back? Good for you! Thank you! J

?Please take this as a sign of our thanks!

?I'd better get back to Elder Librari now! He'll be wondering where I am. Especially now that I can climb over the book, right? I mean, it's so easy now!

?Thanks again for your help!

?KOBITOHONDANA007

?KOBITOHONDANA008

?What a great combo! You're going to meet Elder Librari and Jotori? Oh, and how about Librari's long, boring adventure stories? Haha! Talk about thrilling! Har har! Well, if you're going over there, just climb over the books!

?KOBITOHONDANA010

?We can't get up the shelf, because some human checked that book out! But at least we don't have to listen to Elder Librari's boring old stories!

?Ahh, it's so nice to have all my little books in a row!


?KOBITOHONDANA013

?KOBITOHONDANA014

?KOBITOHONDANA016

?I am Jotori, one of Librari's students! And to be perfectly honest, I think that Librari's adventure stories are... The best!! No, really! I may be a mental giant, but I have the body of just a tiny Minish lad... That's why I really admire strong folk!

?KOBITOHONDANA018

?Oh! So you received that wonderful tool from Elder Librari, did you? I'm so jealous! I'm not much for exercise myself... But if you're going on an adventure, there's no one better to learn from... than Elder Librari! He's so manly! So brave! And so full of FIRE!

? Wohohoho! What business have you with old Librari? But! Before you ask, please allow me to introduce myself. Wohohoho! Ahem, aheeeeem... My name is Librari, and I have lived many long years. So many, in fact, that I've rather forgotten how old I am! But when I was young, oh, I crossed mountain and sea! I had many great adventures, but now I stay here and teach students. Yes, I enjoy my life of quiet study. I have so many stories yet to tell...

? Yes, you are speaking to the world- famous treasure-hunter Librari!

? Wohohoho! Oh? A visitor after many long weeks! Even Jotari has been away so long, I've grown almost...lonely. ...But what is it? What do you need? Hm? You want to visit the Temple of Droplets? Very well... You are the first such brave person in a long while! Stand on the clover in front of me!

? Hrmm? What's this? What's this? You want me to cut to the chase and tell you about the Temple of Droplets?

? All right, all right. You kids today... You have no patience for an old man. Well, go stand over there, just like I told you!

?Wohoho! Now...OPEN, secret mystery panel!!

?Wohoho! Wasn't that fantastic? Now then... It's up to you to pass this trial safely and recover the tool you need. Oh, what fun! I do so love the real nitty-gritty of adventuring!

? Well done, indeed! Why, you're almost as spry as I was at that age!

?What a nice smell...

?I like those red hats the Forest Minish wear...

?I like these blue hats the Town Minish wear...

?The Forest Minish have come for a visit.

?I knew the city life would be exciting!

?Everyone here is so refined...

?I get hungry just from that smell!

?I want a red hat...

?I want a blue hat...

?Our reunion with the Forest Minish is still in full swing!

?We're getting more refined just BEING here!

?Maybe I should just stay here and never go back home...

?What a wonderful smell...

?We just love bread...

?Sometimes I sneak off with a little nibble of leftover bread.


?The bread Wheaton makes has got to be the best bread in Hyrule!

?Isn't Pita cute?

?Every one of their breads is so delicious!

?Those two newlyweds are being more fresh than this fresh-baked bread!


?It's such a thrill coming up here from below, just like PSHOOOO!

?Fewer and fewer people are coming to buy bread...

?I can't believe how dangerous it's gotten around here...

?Now more than ever, we all need to get some good-luck bread!


?I like eating leftovers, but I just wish business were going better for them...

?Hmmm! I see! Oh, that makes sense! ...Human books are so interesting! And that guy Dr. Left living down there has great taste in reading material!

?I'm almost done with this book, though. I hope he gets a new one soon!

?I would love to read something a little more romantic next...

?Ho! Ha! Hey!! Phew... I want to return this book by dropping it down below. It's impossible without some help pushing... But my brother is so busy with a book of his own that he won't help me out! Maybe I can do it with one more push!

?I think my brother is going to finish his book soon. Then I'll have to return this one! Oof! Must...try...harder...

?My brother loves reading books! And I love pushing my brother's books down here to return them!

?It's a bit dusty up here, huh? Maybe I should do a little cleaning...

?Thanks for cleaning up! Now, all that dust is gone!

?Aherrrm herrmmm! I am Hagen, mayor of this fair town! Mayors are usually very important and busy folk, I'll have you know... But I still have a hobby, of course! I collect unusual masks! I just love them! They're beautiful! Simply magnificent, I tell you!

?Aherrm! Yes! That's me, Hagen. I am mayor of this town. What's that? You want a book? A History of Masks? And you say I checked it out, do you? Yes, indeed I did... Or wait... Did I?

?Ahh, you seem to have found the book, safe and sound and in fine shape! But only because you listened to my masks like a good little boy, right? War har har har!

?I'm going to have to pick up volume 2. That last book was just getting good!

?The person living here is the mayor, very important you know. Doesn't it all just sound so...official?

?The mayor likes strange masks. Sometimes, he even makes his own.

?The mayor took off for his cabin by the lake clutching a book. We saw him go...

?But when he came back, he didn't have the book anymore. I'm sure he just forgot it at that lake cabin. Yes, he is forgetful like that.

?You want to go to the cabin by the lake? Well, let me just mark it here on your map. Err... Yes! There. It's right here. You should be able to find it now.

?So the book WAS at the lake, then.

?Ah, but I do love our absentminded old mayor. He's a fine man.

?You know, these masks see everything that goes on in my private life. Maybe you should just ask my masks!


?I think I've finally got a good grasp of how things run in Hyrule. Things run so smoothly around here, and I haven't even done a thing! I wonder how much better this place would be if I actually did anything!

?Aherrm!! That hole in the garden leads to a shelter of sorts. But it's not like I'm trying to run off and save myself alone or anything! Just keep that in mind!


?I'm thinking of ways to increase the library's budget to buy more books. Especially the ones about masks, you know.

?I may look somewhat idle to you, but no, sir! I will be working terrifically hard as soon as you leave. You can bet on that! Hoho!

?These are the times that really test my mettle as a mayor, I tell you. Hyrule is my responsibility to the last. Everyone to the shelters!

?Monsters are coming! Everyone stay indoors! Oh, that doesn't apply to you, my boy! You go get 'em, Link! Your sword and bravery will save the day!

?SHICYOTEI019

?I hope I don't sound like I'm bragging, but I have a cabin at Lake Hylia. It's a gorgeous little place where I go to enjoy my hobby, mask making.

?That cabin by the lake is really quite far.

?The mayor wouldn't be nearly so charming if he weren't so carefree.

?LEFT000

?What is all of this!? I'm busy, don't you see that? Do not disturb my research! If you have no business, begone! You heard me!

?What, huh? A book? From the library? Ah, yes...of course. I knew this day would come. Please, come in.

?LEFT003

?LEFT004

?I am a researcher of Picori legend and lore. My name is Dr. Left. You're here about that book, Legend of the Picori, aren't you? Well, I hate to say this, but I haven't seen it in several days. Perhaps a mischievous little mouse has taken it? Well, I'm sure it's in this house somewhere. I just don't know where. But I'm very busy right now, so why don't you just look for it yourself?

?A book fell with a "THUD!" a little while ago. It gave me such a shock that my heart skipped a beat!

?You found and returned the book for me, did you? I'm very grateful. Here, let me tell you something interesting as thanks. You see, the Minish did not always live in our world. No, they came through a secret portal many ages ago from their world to ours! But don't tell anyone! It's a valuable bit of knowledge that only I know! And I gleaned it only after hours of study from an incredibly old book.

?So you've come to hear more about the Minish, have you? Well, I can part with one more tidbit, I suppose... It could be useful. The portal linking us to the Minish world opens only once every 100 years. That means the Minish here now are descendants of those who came before. That's right! Those Minish came here 100 years ago, or even longer ago! Now that the portal is open this year, perhaps new Minish will come through...

?The more I study the Minish, the closer I feel to them! It's almost as if they were right here with me, all the time...

?I never leave my house, whether there are monsters outside or not!

?Hey, do you know the clues that reveal the location of the treasure? Cross the bridge that spans the rapid flow... Through the land of the fearsome beast... Until you reach the misty falls... The treasure sleeps on the other side of the secret entrance there... They say it's a magical tool that allows even little people to push big things! According to the legend, you're supposed to start from this house!

?Ahh... What should I do? Should I stay or go? If I go, there could be... ...What's that? You've already found the treasure that makes one strong?! Ahhh, I knew it! I'd been stumped on that for so long! I knew I'd lose out!

?You're so brave! I really respect that!

?Have you been using the bracelet that makes you strong? Must come in handy!

?Oh, look! You've found it! Could I ask you to return that book for me, lad?

?Hey. What do you want? My sister's not here. She's at school.

?You have a weird hat. Where can I get one of those?

?Aaaarf!

?My dog's real smart. And a little spoiled, too.

?Julietta, from next door, went back home... But I'll see her tomorrow!


?My sister's back now. I guess she's supposed to stay in.

?Awooo! Hot! Awoo! The fireplace is too hot! My master won't come home, 'cuz he's head over heels for the girl next door. But when he puts the fire out, then sometimes mice come out... I hate mice, so either way, I'm never happy!

?It's too hot! Arf... The fireplace is too hot... There are more people upstairs, and it's getting even hotter. What will it take to make it cooler around here?

?Thanks, arf! You put out the fire. But I'm still miffed at my master! I can't believe how long he's been gone hanging out with his girlfriend! Arf! Arf!

?Huh? A book from the library? A Hyrulean Bestiary, is that the one? Yeah, I checked it out a while ago. You came all this way to get it? Wow! You're one dedicated librarian! But... I don't know how to tell you this, but it's back at my house. Would you mind going there to get it? I just can't leave right now, see...

?They say the king's been weird lately. But that doesn't really have anything to do with our love...

?I'm writing a letter right now, so I don't have any time to play with you. Sorry.

?You returned my book? Thanks!

?They say the king's been weird lately. But that doesn't really have anything to do with our love...

?You ought to be careful when you're running around! You're awfully tiny! And not all dogs and cats are nice, like me. Woof! Some of them might even take a swipe at you, arf! Rarf!

?Oh, hello. My brother's at school.

?I'm writing a letter right now, so I don't have any time to play with you. Sorry.

?Meowry-meowww!!!

?Sssss!

?My family is all very close. Same with Romio's family next door, too. Hee hee!


?My brother's back. Now, he's not allowed out anymore...

?Dear Mom, Gone to Julietta's house. Back soon.

?It's really dangerous up ahead! You can't just charge through recklessly!

?Hey, I've heard about you... So you're gonna go ahead, are you? Well, onward to glory then! Just don't die out there, OK?

?You made it through that den of evil and came back alive?! Amazing! Whoo! Whoo!

?I come from a faraway land. You can tell by my clothing, can't you?

?This place isn't so bad once you get used to it. I like it here.

?In this cool climate, my clothes are a little on the unprotective side.

?I'm thinking about calling my family over soon. Living with your feet on the ground is not so bad, I've decided.

?So you've been to my hometown? It's great, isn't it?

?Monsters could attack at any time. Maybe I shouldn't call my family over.

?I really like this house. This is the best place in this whole human town! I want to stay here forever.

?This place is getting a little run-down. I'm thinking about rebuilding the place.

?Welcome! This is my new house! Ah... Don't you just love that new-house smell? And I was JUST thinking about building a new house, so this is great!

?Imagine moving from a musty old mushroom to a fabulous house like this! It's like a dream come true!

?Well, I suppose I'd better get dinner started! Hmm hm hmmm!


?Oooh, scary... Well, as long as nothing else happens...

?What's a moss-ster?

?It's so boring not being able to go outside.

?The boss might seem rough, but he's a real softy at heart...

?The boss is a real refined fella, right? Anybody what's smart can see dat!

?I would like to apprentice to the boss, too, but he barely even notices me... It's so sad.

?They call him Punch Mutoh because he's like a real punchy fella and all dat.

?The boss is the number-one builder in town. You need a building, you see him.

?We do our best to make this a nice, cozy place, where people can relax. My ideal cafe is a place where everyone can just let it all hang out. Ah, yeah.

?My ideal cafe is a place where everyone can just let it all hang out. Ah, yeah.

?We hear all sorts of interesting gossip in here. Stop by from time to time.

?Make yourself at home... Heehee...

?I am a laid-back, easygoing kind of guy. Not a care in the world. And that's just the way I like it!

?He who can enjoy a nice cup of steaming hot tea at his leisure... is truly master of his own time.

?Let me tell you something that might come in handy someday. You can move bookcases and stuff. Try to push and pull different things... After all, you're young! You should be trying all kinds of new things! Ha!

?I'm one smart cookie!

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your milk for a toast! I wonder what I should have for dinner...

?I wonder what I should have for dinner...

?Everyone's so relaxed here. That's a good thing. My ideal cafe is a place where everyone can just let it all hang out. Ah, yeah.

?My ideal cafe is a place where everyone can just let it all hang out. Ah, yeah.

?Welcoooooome! Nice to see you!

?Take a load off. Heehee...

?This is my special time... Just me and my cuppa joe.

?Well, I don't actually drink coffee...

?It seems the king has commanded all of the guards to search for magic power. Folks say that this "light force" will grant any wish, but I don't buy it...

?I know all kinds of stuff.

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your millk for a toast! Can't we just have the same thing for dinner tonight that we had last night?

?I wonder if we can't just have the same thing for dinner we had last night...

?This cafe is so busy. You can hear all sorts of stuff from all the people here.

?It's just right for people like us who thrive on the hustle and bustle, huh?

?It's hard not to get stepped on when there are so many people here.

?And adults can't even see us, right?

?Everyone's so relaxed here. That's a good thing. My ideal cafe is a place where everyone can relax, relax, and relax some more.

?My ideal cafe is a place where everyone can relax, relax, and relax some more.

?Hey there, sweety! Welcome!

?Just sit anywhere you like, heehee...

?Talking only to oneself... is an exercise in eloquent silence.

?I wonder if that makes any sense...

?The king was always such a nice man, but lately, he's been such a brute... I wonder what happened to him? Hohohho...

?Maybe a monster crawled in his skin and is parading around as the real king! Hohohoho!

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your milk for a toast! Would they even notice if I made the same thing for dinner tonight?

?I wonder... Would they even notice if I made the same thing for dinner tonight?

?Welcome back, honey! Good to see ya!

?The old lady in front of this house drinks nothing but milk.

?Everyone's so relaxed here. That's a good thing. A place you don't ever want to leave. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?A place you don't ever want to leave. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?Welcome back, you! You're my favorite customer!

?So you've been good lately? Gooood, heehee...

?You can tell all of your deepest secrets to a wall. The wall will never talk back.

?But I've found if you talk to 'em right, walls will give up all sorts of secrets!

?You're going to the Royal Valley? I hear that place is haunted... But there's a secret entrance that will get you there from Hyrule Field. I mean, that's what I've heard.

?That place is dark even in the daytime. And you know how ghosts love the dark! Hohohoho...

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your milk for a toast! Hey, I know... Why don't we just have milk for dinner?

?Why can't we just have milk for dinner?

?Oh, hey there... Good to see you.

?We Minish all get along very well.

?Everyone's so relaxed here. That's a good thing. A place where you're so familiar that you don't even have to order. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?A place where you're so familiar that you don't even have to order. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?Howdy, hon. Glad to see you again.

?Aren't you looking manly now! Heehee...

?Actually, there is a VERY GOOD reason I cannot stand... What would you do if I told you that?

?What is truth? When we understand this, then we will conquer even time itself...

?The source of the flow? Well, that's easy. It's talking about water! The water flowing into town and into the lake all comes from the same place. Hohohoh...

?If you're looking for the source of the flow... Well, you'd better make sure you're well equipped is all I'm sayin'! Hohoho!

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your milk for a toast! I wonder...do we even need to eat dinner at all?

?I wonder...do we even need to eat dinner at all?

?Welcome, sugar pie!

?It's so convenient to live in a human house as a Minish.

?Everyone's so relaxed here. That's a good thing. A place where you can relax despite what's going on outside. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?A place where you can relax despite what's going on outside. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?Heeeey! Weeeelcome!

?You're turning into a fine little man, aren't you! Heehee...

?Though I am nondescript, you notice me and talk to me. That makes me the prize, and you are the winner of that prize!

?Someday, you will understand.

?I hear a guard who was looking for the light force got thrown in the dungeon! Why, the king is hardly worthy of being called "noble" anymore!

?But I should be careful, lest I be jailed myself just for criticizing the king!

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your milk for a toast! It's not like the world would come to an end if I didn't make dinner, right?

?It's not like the world would come to an end if I didn't make dinner, right?

?Everyone's so relaxed here. That's a good thing. A place where you could happily let the world crumble around you. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?A place where you could happily let the world crumble around you. That's my idea of a good cafe.

?Hey there! Doin' well?

?We're counting on you, young man! Heehee!

?Everything with a beginning also has an end. To put it another way, all things move toward their end... Even from the moment they begin.

?The end is near. For me, as well as for you.

?Hyrule Castle is covered in darkness. This is the end.

?I never imagined something like this would happen in my lifetime. I wonder if the Picori will show up and help us once again...

?Cheers! Yaay! Cheers! Raise your milk for a toast! I never knew that failing to make dinner would have such consequences!

?I never knew that failing to make dinner would have such consequences!

?Just try fusing Kinstone pieces with lots of people. There are a lot of people out there looking for someone to fuse with.

?You'd be surprised to find who--and what--you can fuse Kinstones with! Yeah, you've got a lot of fusing in your future, pal...

?I recommend visiting places you've already been. You may then be able to fuse Kinstone pieces in those places, you know?

?You can get special items by fusing Kinstone pieces! Don't miss out on the opportunity!

?There's a group of lovely young ladies visiting Hyrule... Maybe I'll get a chance to talk to them if I offer to fuse Kinstone pieces. Heh.

?I hear there's a wall in Minish Woods with a spot for a Kinstone piece. I'm sure you can find other places where you can place Kinstone pieces.

?Do you know of the Goron Cave? It's a tunnel that the Gorons are digging. And if you can get all the way to the cave's end and place a Kinstone... Well, why don't I just let you try it for yourself!

?I hear you can fuse Kinstone pieces with the ghost in the Royal Crypt. Or at least so I hear. I'm too scared to find out for sure.

?You can't always just charge straight ahead to new places in life, you know. You need to go back to places you've already been and reflect on things. Who knows? That quiet reflection may give you a chance to fuse Kinstones!

?You know, fusing Kinstone pieces can get you more than mere Rupees... It can call new people to a place or even change the way the town looks. And all those things can lead to happiness as well, right?

?Are you enjoying fusing Kinstone pieces? Fusing can bring happiness to you and your fusing buddy! That's what I say!

?I wonder what happens if you fuse all of the Kinstones a person is holding...

?Hyrule Castle has fallen to the darkness... I suppose this is no time to be fusing Kinstone pieces, is it?

?Nonsense! Maybe we need it now more than ever before! Fusing Kinstone pieces can bring people happiness! This is the true motive for fusing, my friend! Not Rupees, but happiness!

?Yow! That sword-fighting tournament was so exciting! Oh, if only my husband were talented enough to compete...

?Even I'm a better swordfighter than my husband is. He can't even handle a butter knife!

?That sorcerer was something else! He really tore up the town, so we've got a serious backlog of work to do.

?The name's Mutoh. I'm head carpenter 'round these parts. The king of Hyrule himself has entrusted me with this project. See, that sorcerer's attack tore things up pretty bad around here. You know, kid, you shouldn't be playing anywhere near the construction zone.

?Listen up, you! I'm a skilled carpenter, and I'm looking for a challenge!

?My ancestors built that castle, you know! Of course they did! After all, they are MY ancestors, aren't they?

?Oh, sorry... Am I in your way? I just wanted a little attention. Anyway, it was nice of you to say hi. Sorry for the trouble. I'll move now.

?That green cap and green clothes... Are you...perhaps...a fairy?! Woohaa! I knew it! I knew it! Tingle wants to be a fairy, too! Actually, Tingle has some Kinstones, you know! And I have given Kinstones to my brothers, too. If you can fuse Kinstones with me and each of my brothers, well... I don't want to give it away, but you'll get something very, very, VERY good! Good luck, Mr. Fairy!
