Darton is a character from Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Darton can be found at the Dueling Peaks Stable alongside his twin younger brother, Shibo. They do everything together and during the daytime, they are found just outside the stable, right by the horses. Link can speak with Darton or Shibo and they will both respond to him. They can see it in Link's eyes that he loves horses and they offer to give Link some tips on horses.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Darton will joke that Link does not have a twin, in reference to the fact that there are multiple sets of twins found at the Dueling Peaks Stable.[7]

Darton and Shibo will both provide some tips to Link on how he can catch a horse.[8][9] The duo will also teach Link about the difference between spotted horses and one-colored horses. With spotted horses being even-tempered and easy to train, while the one-colored horses are wilder, but have much higher stats. Shibo recommends that beginners should start with spotted horses.[10][11][12][13] The brothers will also teach Link how to train a horse and when the appropriate time to soothe them is.[14][15][16]

Unlike some of the other residents of the Dueling Peaks Stable, Darton and his brother are not affected by the rain. Even while it is raining, the twins will stay outside, interacting with the horses. They will remain outside all day long, only coming in at 8pm when they are both sleepy.[17][18] They will sleep at the Stable until 6am, where they both awake at the same time. While asleep, Darton will dream about one-colored horses.[19] Once he awakes, Darton will try to race Shibo to where the horses are.[20]

Strangely, there is no animation for either Shibo or Darton to get into bed. They will simply walk over and stand right next to the bed. They will just wait there and if Link keeps them in view, or never leaves the stable, the two will just stand there. Once Link walks away and then looks back, Shibo will be asleep. When they awake however, there is an animation to get out of bed. Additionally, sometimes Beedle on rainy days will walk in the Stable, blocking the entrance. On these days, Shibo and Darton might be unable to enter the stable and will simply walk around for hours on end until they can get in or Beedles moves.

Tears of the Kingdom

Darton and his twin brother Shibo can be found walking around at the Dueling Peaks Stable. While Darton is drawing some footprints in the ground, Shibo welcomes Link to the stable.[21][22][23][24][25] The two brothers traveled to Faron at some point and saw some strange footprints, but noboody believes them.[26]

Link comments to the brothers that the footprints are real and they belong to Dondon.[27][28] The two brothers are so happy to hear the truth and thank Link for providing this information to them.[29] Darton wants to draw a picture of the Dondon, remembering its really long tusks and its tail.[30][31][32] Just as they finish, Shibo comments that he wants to show it to his father.[33] The brother then give Link the picture, along with a reward of a Swift Carrot[34][35][36] They mentioned that they saved up rupees and bought the Swift Carrot from Kakariko Village.[37] The brothers feed the carrots to the horses when trying to tame them.

At 5pm each evening, Shibo and Darton will head inside the stable.[38][39] The two are still talking about the Dondon's, and in particular their appearance and the footprints that were washed away by the rain.[40][41][42][43] The two brothers will head to sleep each evening at 9pm. The two brothers will head to sleep each evening at 9pm.[44]



  1. Hey, Shibo... You think this nosy guy right here is interested in horses? - Darton
  2. Looks like it to me, Darton... Judging from his eyes, he's just itching to get into the saddle. - Shibo
  3. You really can tell just by looking into his eyes! Bro, his head is just filled with horse stuff, right? - Darton
  4. That's right! Just look at his eyes! Right now in his head, it's all horses, horses, horses, food, and horses...right? - Shibo
  5. In that case, you should feel free to ask us anything at all about horses! - Darton
  6. Do you want to hear some tips to help you master your horse? Yah or neigh? I didn't think of that joke, by the way. That's one of my dad's jokes! - Shibo
  7. Look, Shibo, it's the twinless dude! - Darton
  8. While horses get scared easily, and if they notice people near them, they'll take off. Just sneak up on 'em from behind real slow. When you get good and close... grab 'em and jump on quick! - Shibo
  9. If you crouch and sneak up quietly... they won't notice you! - Darton
  10. Horses with spots on them are even-tempered and easy to train. On the other hand, horses that are all one color, like straight black or white, are a bit more wild and harder to train. - Darton
  11. But a one-color horse has more stamina and runs faster, right?. - Shibo
  12. Dad said they're hard to handle at first, but if you spend a lot of time with a one-color horse, you'll be best buds! - Darton
  13. Dad also said that beginners should start with spotted horses... When I grow up, I'll ride a one-color horse, though! - Shibo
  14. They're really wild, so they'll run in different directions and buck here and there because they aren't trained yet. When that happens, you've gotta soothe them! - Shibo
  15. But dad also said that just constantly soothing them won't do at all. - Darton
  16. The trick is to soothe them when they do what you want them to do. It's like saying "thanks" to them for a job well done! - Shibo
  17. So sleepy... - Shibo
  18. I'm feeling so sleepy all of a sudden... - Darton
  19. One one-color horsey... Two one-color horsies... - Darton
  20. Today, I'm going to see if I can get to the horses before Shibo does! - Darton
  21. "This part was like this, and that part waaas... Ummm..." — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom

  26. "We found strange footprints when we went to Faron, but... Nobody believes us." — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
  27. "Darton, did you hear that?! The footprints we saw were the real deal!" — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
  28. "A Dondon, huh? And only five have ever been found in the whole world?! That's why nobody knew about it! And Dad said we were dreaming. Ha! I can't wait to see the look on his face when we tell him!" — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom
  29. "Wow! Thanks! Travelers go to so many places and learn so many things—it's just amazing. That's why I drew the footprints. I hoped a traveler would see them and teach us something amazing too." — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
  30. "Hey, Darton, let's try drawing a picture of that Dondon!" — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
  31. "Yeah!" — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom
  32. "Ummm... It has a big, round body... The tusks are REALLY long...and its tail is... Yeah! That's it!" — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom
  33. "It's like you took it right out of my brain, Darton! Just wait until Dad sees THIS!" — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
  34. "Hey, Shibo! Can I give him that thing?" — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom
  35. "Yeah! I think he's earned it." — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
  36. "OK! Ahem-hem. We are presenting you with one of our finest treasures." — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom

  42. "Huh? Wide? No, they were definitely more broaaad..." — Darton, Tears of the Kingdom
  43. "Stupid rain, washing those footprints away before we could get a good look. I wish it didn't rain so much around there." — Shibo, Tears of the Kingdom
