The Western Wood is a location in The Minish Cap. The wooded area is home to three types of enemies; the Keaton, Moblin, and Crow. It is also home to the poet, Percy, a single forest Picori, and the Monster Lady who was living in Percy's home while he wasn't there. These two characters are only accessible after fusing kinstones to fix the fallen tree trunk behind the house. The Western Wood is also the only way Link can enter and exit Castor Wilds.
