Quarreling Brothers

If Link breaks down the door, he is able to access the 15-Second Game, and the elder brother admits he should probably make up with his younger sibling.

Shooting Gallery Proprietor


The ghostly owner of a Shooting Gallery found south of the Village of Outcasts. Despite his appearance, he is friendly and amiable. He will bang his drum when Link scores a hit in his game, and speaks using Southern American phrases such as "howdy".
