Friday Favorites: Twilight Princess Side Characters

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday!
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.
4. Coro
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.
3. Renado
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.
2. Telma
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.
1. Malo
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?

  1. Very good choices! To be honest, I’m not that fond of most of the side characters in Twilight Princess. I love the main characters especially Midna, but I’ve never been too fond of the others. That said, I love Malo a lot too! You never expect much from him until he starts talking about business takeovers and the like. Then you realize he means business, and watching his mart develop is one of the funniest parts in the game. Malo Mart’s theme song is among my favorites in the soundtrack! Other than that, it’s hard to say that I like anyone else that’s considered a side. Ilia is kind of okay, though her character feels like wasted potential. Malo Mart forever!

    • I felt the same way about Ilia! Compared to other “leading ladies” of the Zelda series, Ilia felt the weakest. She wasn’t bad, really, but there was much more she could have done. She always annoyed me with the fact that she tried to get Epona to prefer her over Link too, haha! xD
