Grandma Yahoo, also known as Grandma Ulrira, is a character from Link's Awakening. She lives in Mabe Village in a house with Old Man Ulrira, where she is often seen sweeping outside of the house. Later in the game, she is found in the northeast of Animal Village.

Trading Sequence

Grandma Ulrira is a participant in the Trading Sequence. She works so hard that her broom is worn down to the handle.[1] When Link brings a new Broom from Mr. Write to her, she becomes very excited and asks if it is for her.[2] If he refuses, she snaps that he should sweep the whole island.[3] If Link gives it to her, she thanks him and gives him a Fishing Hook in return, which she claims to have found while sweeping near the river bank.[4]

Naming

The character is referred to as Grandma Ulrira in Link's Awakening for the Game Boy and Game Boy Color and is also referred to as such in The Legend of Zelda: Encyclopedia. In the 2019 Remake of Link's Awakening, she has been renamed to Grandma Yahoo.
