Get Anton and Linda to Date


Playing Cupid[1], is a Side Quest from The Wind Waker.


As part of Lenzo's Pictograph Assistant side quest, one of the objectives was The Secret Couple, which required Link to take a snapshot of Anton and Linda exchanging eye contact. Lenzo will comment that he didn't even know the extent of their passion for one another. He thanks Link and tells him that he is proud to call Link his assistant.[2][3] This will give Link the Deluxe Picto Box.

When Link returns to Windfall Island, anytime after completing Dragon Roost Cavern, Anton can still be seen walking along his normal daily path, with Linda still standing near the town square.

While standing around, Linda will see a lot of people walk on by, including Anton. She wishes that someone would stop and notice her.[4] After Linda speaks with Lenzo, she has her her fortune told. Lenzo tells Linda that she needs to have her Pictograph taken, and then shown to the one who has captured her heart. This will cause true love to blossom.[5] She notices that Link has a Picto Box and will ask him to take a Pictograph of her.[6] She wants Link to capture her full body, as she wants to show off her outfit that she's wearing.[7] After taking the picture, she asks Link to take it to her admirer.[8] Linda then waits patiently, wondering when he will come, hoping he comes tomorrow.[9]

Anton will comment that everytime he walks by, Linda kind of gives him a look, although Anton doesn't quite know what it means.[10] He does know that there is a certain someone that he's had his eye for awhile, but he doesn't even know her name. Everytime he even thinks about her, his heart starts fluttering. It's a fealing that he's never had before.[11]

Link will first need to show a color photograph of Linda to Anton. Anton will immediately recognize the girl, as she is the one that he's had his eye on lately.[12][13] The picture really sets Anton off and finally gives him the courage to ask Linda out on a date.[14] Although Anton is super nervous as he still doesn't know her name, doesn't know if she's nice, or if she's currently seeing anybody.[15] Anton plans to ask her out for coffee, and if things seem to be going right, he's going to profess his love for her.[16]


  • Take a Color Pictograph of Linda, showing her full outfit.
  • Show the Color Pictograph to Anton
  • Playing the Song of Passing to pass time to the following day and visit the couple at the Cafe Bar


After a full day cycle, Anton and Linda can later both be found at the Cafe Bar. Anton has finally worked up the courage to ask Linda on a date and it was the right move, as Linda likes him.[17][18] Linda comments that the two of them are going to start dating and asks Link if they make a delightful couple. She awards Link with a Piece of Heart.[19] She is so thankful that Link delivered her Pictograph to Anton, as it is what brought the two of them together.[20]

  2. "Oh-ho! This is a finely snapped pictograph indeed! ...I had no idea these two would get along so splendidly! You can see the love there, hidden but thriving. Even I, who have lived in this town for so many long years, did not realize in the slightest the extent of their passion. You have done well, [Link]." — Lenzo, The Wind Waker.
  3. "Now then, my young sir... You have completed all of the tasks I set you to. My doubts about you have all been cleared up! I shall hereby be proud to call you my assistant, [Link]! And to reward you further for your fine efforts, I offer you this! The elderly lady next door tells me it has value, of sorts." — Lenzo, The Wind Waker.
  4. "You know something? When you stand here, you see a lot of different people pass by. This is a brand-new outfit, you know. I just wish someone would notice it." — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  5. "He told me that if I send a beautiful pictograph of myself to the one who has captured my heart, true love will blossom in return..." — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  6. "So I couldn't help but notice...that you have a Picto Box of your own, don't you? Do you think you could take a pictograph of me to the apple of my eye? Maybe he'll notice my affections... Leave it to me! Keep me out of this!" — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  7. "Really?! How splendid! Be sure to get my good side! Oh! I want to show off this outfit, so don't just take a pictograph of my face. Can you be sure to get my whole body in the pictograph?" — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  8. "After you do your little "CLICK! CLICK!" and take my pictograph, be sure to take it to him for me!" — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  9. "Maybe... He'll come tomorrow!" — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  10. "I tell you, every time I walk by, she kind of gives me that look... You know that look I'm talking about? What do you suppose that look could mean...?" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  11. "Whenever I think about her, my heart just starts fluttering in my chest. I've never felt anything like this before... You think I'm catching a cold, buddy?" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  12. "Oh! A pictograph, eh, buddy?" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  13. "Ah! This girl...! Actually, buddy, this is the girl I've had my eye on lately." — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  14. "Wow! She really IS that pretty! I mean, just seeing this pictograph reminds me of how gorgeous that girl is... But no! I'll never be happy with just a mere pictograph! Never! That's it! I've made my decision! I am going to get that girl to go out with me! It's got to be done, buddy!" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  15. "I've got it! Maybe I'll invite her to join me at the cafe bar_for coffee, of course! ...So what's her name, anyway? Do you think she's nice? Does she have a steady fellow? Ohhhhh, I'm so NERVOUS!" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  16. "That's it! I've made up my mind! First, I'm going to ask her out for coffee, then, if things seem to be going right, I'm going to profess my love for her! Urrgh... I just can't seem to settle down. I'm so nervous... I mean, just when am I supposed to invite her out, buddy?" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  17. "Hey! It's you! Listen to this, will you? I...DID...IT! I worked up my courage, and I talked to her, and it was totally the right move! You know why, buddy? She likes me! She actually likes me!" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  18. "Everything's coming up roses for me... Life IS good, buddy!" — Anton, The Wind Waker.
  19. "The two of us...are going to start dating! Don't we make a delightful couple? I'm so happy! And that's why I want to share some of our happiness with you! Take good care of it!" — Linda, The Wind Waker.
  20. "You delivered my pictograph, didn't you? Well, it looks like that was what brought us together... Thank you so much!" — Linda, The Wind Waker.
