The Ghost is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.


Link's Awakening

The Ghost appears after Link completes Angler's Tunnel. He follows Link and asks him to take him to the House by the Bay, where he used to live.[1] He is overcome by nostalgia upon seeing it again.[2]

Once he has seen his house for the last time, he requests to be taken to his grave in the southwest of Koholint Prairie.[3] When Link takes him there, he thanks him and says that there is something under a jar in his house.[4]The Ghost is actually referring to a Secret Seashell.

In the DX version of Link's Awakening, the Photographer will take a picture of Link and the Ghost titled "I Was Very Afraid" if Link touches the Ghost's grave after bringing the Ghost back there.[5]

  • If Link sprinkles some Magic Powder on Ghost's grave, he will say, "Cough cough... Don't sprinkle that on me... ... I'll have to curse you! Cough cough..."[6]
