Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, Dampé is the gravekeeper of the Kakariko Village Graveyard. During Link's childhood, Dampé can be found patrolling the graveyard at night and will start his own Gravedigging Tour, upon request for 10 Rupees, digging up anything from Rupees to a Heart Piece that Link can pick up. The items that he digs up appear randomly. During the day, he is at his shack sleeping, and if Link tries to interact with him, he'll just tell him to "buzz off".
Sometime during Link's seven year slumber, Dampé dies and become a ghost. When Link digs up his grave, he can find Dampé's ghost in a maze beneath the grave. Dampé will challenge Link to a race, and if Link wins, Dampé will allow Link to take his treasure, the Hookshot. Playing again and winning in under a minute will yield him a Piece of Heart.
In Majora's Mask, Dampé is the gravekeeper of the Ikana Graveyard, which is a haunted graveyard, yet he is afraid of ghosts. On the Final Day, Link can find Dampé Beneath the Graveyard, where he will admit to be searching for the Ikana Royal Family's treasure. However, he lost his lantern and cannot see. He will ask Link to guide him using the light his fairy, Tatl. leading him to the soft soil spots will cause him to dig there. After he has dug up three Blue Flames, a Big Poe will appear. Dampé will run away to his house, and if Link defeats the Poe, he will be rewarded with a chest that contains an Empty Bottle.
