Duke Onkled (pronounced /ˈɒnkləd/ ON-kləd)[1] is the ruler of the island of Gamelon. He is also a cousin of King Harkinian. He appears in the video game Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon.

During the events of Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, King Harkinian announces that Duke Onkled is under attack, and his island territory of Gamelon likely under Ganon's rule. Thus, the King goes off to aid Onkled, but does not return. With both him and Link missing, Zelda and Impa go to Gamelon to find them. Duke Onkled is then revealed to be corrupt, as he is actually working for Ganon and allowed him to take over Gamelon and imprison many of its inhabitants, and a traitor for allowing Ganon to capture the King. Once Zelda reaches Dodomai Palace and finds Onkled in his secret chamber, he is forced into telling her a secret passage into Reesong Palace, and is apprehended by Fari. At the end of the game, he is turned over to the king and seen begging for mercy, and is then forced to scrub all the floors in Hyrule as punishment.
