Twin Lumberjacks (Brothers)

Unlike his two brothers, Q. Bumpkin does not have the strength to be a lumberjack. Instead, his talent comes in the form of riddles.[1]

If there is an active file of Four Swords with 10 Medals of Courage on the same cart, Link can speak with Q. Bumpkin to initiate the Riddle Quest, an optional side quest only found in the Game Boy Advance version of the game. During the Riddle Quest, Link will need to use his Bug-Catching Net to acquire a variety of different objects. Solving several of the riddles will cause Wooden Carvings to be sent to Link's House[2]. After solving all ten of the riddles in the side quest, Link will acquire the Hurricane Spin, allowing him to perform multiple spin attacks in a row.
