"Gee, it sure is boring around here!"
  • Big Eater: Implied. When King Harkinian brings up dinner, he states that he's so hungry, he could eat an Octorock.
    • Later on, George The Baker mentions that he could eat 10 loafs of bread.
  • Distressed Dude: In Wand Of Gamelon.
  • Motivational Kiss: Link tries to get one from Zelda. She refuses.
  • Thrill Seeker: Possibly. He complains about how boring it is that Hyrule is now in peacetime, wondering what scheme Ganon is planning.
  • Victory Is Boring: "Gee, it sure is boring around here!"
  • You Just Had to Say It: The moment he admits that he wonders what Ganon is up to, it immediately turns out that he's attacking Koridai.


     King Harkinian
"Mah boi, this peace is what all true warriors strive for!"
  • Parents in Distress: Ends up getting captured by Ganon and Duke Onkled for a whole month in Wand Of Gamelon.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: When he hears Duke Onkled is in trouble, he goes to Gamelon himself to aid him and told Zelda to only send Link after him if she doesn't hear from him in a month. Sadly it's his initial helpfulness that leads to Onkled stabbing him in the back and turning him over to Ganon which kicks off the story of "Wand of Gamelon".
  • Signature Laugh: "OAHOHOHOHAHAHAHAHAHA!"

"Don't worry, Zelda. The Triforce of Wisdom promises The King will safely return."

"Squadalah! We're off!"




"I spy, with my eye, someone who must die!"

  • Reforged into a Minion: Their introduction cutscene shows them transforming a Koridian into one of their Moblin henchmen.
  • She's a Man in Japan: Has a distinctly feminine voice actor in the English version of The Faces of Evil, but a masculine voice in other localisations of the game.
  • Third Eye: Lupay has a third eye in the middle of their head. It is how Lupay fires their energy beams during the boss fight.

  • Large Ham: In a figurative and literal sense.

"Worthless Koridian, you must be hardened with fire! Go and kill!"

  • Asskicking Pose: Before his and Link's fight.
  • Badass Boast: Compared to the other one-liners that the bosses say, his words before fighting Link are actually intimidating.
  • Defeat by Modesty: His true form is an old man in underwear.
  • Recurring Boss: First encountered in the Militron area, and then later fought again in Ganon's Lair.

"Oh, goody! Mashed Link for the main course!"

  • Extreme Omnivore: Will eat seemingly anything, even a bomb.
  • Fat Bastard: Very fat, and is not above eating living beings.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Is seen eating a captive Koridian in his intro cutscene. Also, during his pre-battle cutscene he was shown trying to eat Link.
    Glutko: Oh, goody! Mashed Link for the main course!
  • Recurring Boss: First encountered in the Glutko area, and then again at the summit of the Shrine of Koridai.

"I may be hideous, but after a year of being frozen, you'll beg to join me!"

  • Big "NO!": "You can't kill me! No! No! Nooo!"
  • Dem Bones: "Wake up, sleepybones! Find the living and cut their vile throats!"
  • Recurring Boss: You fight Goronu twice in Faces of Evil, first in the face of Goronu and later the revived Goronu in Fortress Centrum, who at first appears to be a sleeping Zelda.
  • This Cannot Be!: "You can't kill me! No! No! Nooo!"

"For the dead shall rise, and the living shall be their slaves. She must be stopped!"

"Whatever I see, I shall devour!"

"Please, your omnipotence, have mercy!"

  • No Hero Discount: "Sorry Link, I can't give credit. Come back when you're a little- mmmmm... Richer!".
  • Sdrawkcab Name: His name is Ushrom's name backwards.


"Don't fight him, feed him. (Takes a bite of a sausage) Something spicy. Know what I mean?

  • Big Eater: From what little we know of him, he seems to like eating and drinking a lot.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He sounds a lot like Dan Castellaneta doing his Barney Gumble voice.

     Harbanno The Baker 

     Mayor Kravendish 
"This is illegal, you know."


"Of course I'm on your side, but I still have to sell the stuff. Just pick what you want, I'll handle the rubees."

  • No Hero Discount: "Sorry Zelda, not enough rupees, you'll have to fight a few more Goriyas."
  • Sdrawkcab Name: His name is Morshu's name backwards.

"Here's the traitor, your majesty!"

  • Captain Obvious:
    Kiro: Duke Onkled betrayed the King!
    Zelda: I know.
  • Fan Nickname: The Youtube Poop community often refers to him as "Fari".
  • Informed Attribute: Ganon calls him a "runt" in one scene, possibly implying he's a short man. It's hard to tell in-game though.
  • Nice Hat: Wheres a wide brimmed hat with a feather.
  • The Stoic: When he's captured by Ganon, he just shouts "Hey." indifferently.

"Isn't it lovely? Bring some fairy dust and i'll make it a magic cloak.


Before you face the foul fiend Ganon, you must conquer Fortress Central, where the treasure of death is located. bring it to me, begone!

     Lady Alma 

I'm not afraid of you!

  • Damsel in Distress: She is captured and imprisoned by Wizzrobe.
  • Royal Brat: Appears to be very arrogant and self-centered.
  • Magic Mirror: At the end of the game, she appears carrying a mirror she uses to look at herself. It turns out to have been imprisoning Link, as seen after Zelda takes it from her and breaks it.
  • Purple Eyes
