The Kokiri Forest is a location in Ocarina of Time. It is the home of the Kokiri, a race of children that never age. It is also the home of Link. It connects to the Lost Woods and Hyrule Field. It is the location of the first dungeon, Inside the Deku Tree.


The inhabitants of the Kokiri Forest, the Kokiri

Kokiri Forest is a small village in the forest south of Hyrule Field. It is inhabited by the Kokiri and their fairies. It is the home of Link and hence why he is dressed in green. The Kokiri are not allowed to leave the forest, since they think anyone will die.

Oddly enough, Kokiri are seen outside of the forest on a few occasions. There are six houses in Kokiri Forest, Link's House, Mido's House, The Twins' House, Saria's House, Know-It-All Brothers' House and the Kokiri Shop. There is a hidden area where Link gets his sword, and to the southernmost point lies the Great Deku Tree's Meadow.

The Kokiri Forest is a peaceful place when Link is a child, but when he returns to his home as an adult, it is overrun by Deku Scrubs, Deku Babas, Octoroks, and Skulltulas. After Link rids the evil within the Forest Temple, the forest returns to normal with every Kokiri getting reminded of "somebody they knew" when they were children, referring to Link.




  • The people outside of the Kokiri Forest and Lost Woods call this location the Forbidden Forest.
  • On the side of Link's house, there is a drawing of Link battling a monster.
