Gomo is a character found in Tears of the Kingdom.

Tears of the Kingdom

When Link first arrives at the Bedrock Bistro, Gomo can be found sitting down nearby. He had recently heard about the boom in Marbled Rock Roast and had to interupt his travels to come back it out. However, once he arrived he realized that they were out of stock. He comments to Link that regardless of how tasty it is, he doesn't think edible rocks sound too appealing to a Hylian.[1][2]

Cash In on Ripened Flint

Main article: Cash In on Ripened Flint

After completing the Meat for Meat quest, Link can speak with Gomo, found sitting next to the Bedrock Bistro. He's still upset that Marbled Rock Roast is not on the menu yet. Gomo, also known as Gomo the goromand, is a rich and well-travelled connoisseur of rock-based delicacies. His favourite dish is Ripened Flint, a rare treat that exactly resembled regular Flint until it is tasted. Link can offer him 20, 50 or 100 Flint to see whether one is Ripened. If one is, Gomo will provide him with 1000 Rupees. If not, Link gets nothing in exchange.[3][4][5] This begins the Cash In on Ripened Flint on quest. At any point, Link can trade in some Flint, as long as he has at least 20 pieces.[6]

After giving Gomo some flint, he will devour it.[7] If one of the pieces happens to be Ripened Flint, Gomo will reward Link with 1,000 rupeees.[8] This will complete the quest. Link can continue to give Gomo more flint to try out. If there is no ripened flint, he will not give Link any award, but will continue to give 1,000 rupees if he eats some ripened flint.[9]


  • Gomo bears a striking resemblance to Colonel Sanders, the founder and mascot of Kentucky Fried Chicken.



  1. "Here for Cooke's famous culinary concoctions too? Recently I heard about a rare delicacy being offered here known as marbled rock roast. I'm told it's indescribable! I interrupted my travels to come try it, but they're fresh out... Not sure edible rocks would appeal to a Hylian though. Too much tooth-crunch! Normally, there's a menu just for Hylians, but everything's sold out on that one as well. Seems like we're both out of luck, hm?" — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  2. "I even made a big detour out this way so I could come try the marbled rock roast I've heard so much about. To think it'd be sold out... What a travesty." — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  3. "It's a shame, but it looks like marbled rock roast isn't on the menu anymore. I took a detour from my travels and came all this wya to try it, but there's nothing to be done about it now. Oh! My apologies for the delayed introduction. The name's Gomo. I travel the world, sampling every rock under the sun. I s'pose that's why I'm known as Gomo the goromand. I must ask, have you any flint to spare? Inside some flint is a rare and especially delectable ripened flint. If I could have any ripened flint you find, I'd pay you 1,000 rupees per piece. Ripened flint looks like normal flint, and you won't know one way or the other if it's ripened until you try eating it." — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  4. "Oh... Oh yes! There can be no doubt. That delicate, earthy aroma. You have some, do you not?" — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  5. "Ripened flint is incredibly rare—you may have a hundred flint pieces, and not one yields the elusive ripened variety! If you have 20 or more pieces of flint, please, let me have them." — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  6. "Ripened flint is a true delicacy. If I may have any of your ripened flint, I'll pay you 1,000 rupees per piece. If looks like normal flint and you won't know one way or the other until you try eating it." — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  7. "There's no telling whether or not it's ripened flint until I eat it. How much will you provide me with?" — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  8. "The polite way to enjoy it is to roll it silently beneath the tongue, allowing it to dissolve. Hm? Oh me, oh my! What have we here! It's ripened flint! Sharp edges that bite at the tongue. A gravelly mouthfeel with particulate that sticks between the teeth. There can be no doubt. This is indeed authentic, ripened flint! Here are your 1,000 rupees, as promised. I look forward... to a stupendous... relationship with you!" — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
  9. "Alas... It's only normal flint. Ripend flint is incredibly rare—eat a hundred, and you still may not find even one. So this isn't too surprising, really. I shall spare no expense for ripened flint. I'd be trilled if you brought me more to test out." — Gomo, Tears of the Kingdom
