As a few of you may have realized that I’m playing through the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for the Wii U. It’s been a lot of fun so far, especially with all the quirky characters! That’s why this week my Friday Favorites is dedicated to my favorite side characters from Twilight Princess.
5. Queen Rutela
Besides the fact that I’m not partial to water levels and temples (seriously, the Zora architects who created the Lakebed Temple were assholes), I did like the Zora characters in Twilight Princess, especially Queen Rutela. Her design is amazing, and I like the fact that even in death she still cares deeply for her people and son.
Coro is the very chill guy that one meets near the beginning of the game close by the Faron Woods. He gifts Link with a free lantern to help promote his oil-selling business. I was always amused at this guy just relaxing in the middle of the woods, at the birds building nests in his hair, and at the fact that he thinks his older sister is scarier than Wolf-Link.
This dude is awesome. He’s a shaman who uses his knowledge to help out whoever needs it, he’s totally chill, and he had no problem stepping in to protect a bunch of children from another village when he was needed.
This amazing barmaid was always one of my favorites in the game. Aside from dishing out sass instead of taking any, Telma is progressive in her goals and has a kind nature, being part of the Resistance for Hyrule and helping out Ilia and the Zora Prince alike.
This kid (who apparently is only about five years old) has more business ambition that I’ve ever had in my life. Seriously, Malo is awesome with his dry humor, his shops, and the Malo Mart music is one of my favorite tunes from the game.
What are your favorite Twilight Princess side characters? Any that you particularly couldn’t stand?
