List of implied characters
This is a list of characters who are not seen or otherwise met in person, yet are still indicated to exist. This includes deceased characters who are only mentioned in passing.
Animal troupe leader
The leader of the animal troupe is a dog mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. He was able to lead the troupe with the help of the Bremen Mask, but the jealous Guru-Guru stole it. Guru-Guru confesses this to Link before passing the mask on to him.
Brac is an alleged carpenter mentioned in the first American release of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, where a carpenter asks himself if Brac is working on that night. Brac is actually the result of a localization error; the Japanese script contained the word Tetsuya (テツヤ, which would normally be written as 徹夜), meaning "all night," which the localizers apparently mistook for a name. The Commonwealth English releases rectify this, and the proper translation is used in all regions for Majora's Mask 3D.
Don Gero is the conductor of the frog choir mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. His name comes from ゲロゲロ (Gerogero), a Japanese equivalent to "ribbit." By wearing Don Gero's Mask, Link can impersonate him. It is not specifically made clear if the Goron found with the mask is the actual Don Gero or another impersonator, though the fact he is simply called "the hungry Goron" by a Gossip Stone on the Moon, as well as the Bombers' Notebook in Majora's Mask 3D suggests the latter.
Dorian's wife is a character mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and is the deceased mother of Koko and Cottla. She was killed by the Yiga clan after Dorian defected from them. Koko knows she is dead and hopes to make her proud, while Cottla thinks she is simply hiding in the woods.
Hoskit's girlfriend is a female Rito mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, where Hoskit wants to send her 20 Golden Feathers and requests Link's help in collecting them. Once they are sent, she sends Link a letter.
J. L. Picall
The Seer, J. L. Picall is a character mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker on a sign atop Windfall Island's lighthouse. Picall forsaw a "wielder of the flaming arrow" using it to relight the lighthouse.
Kashiko is Baito's mother in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. After Link mails Baito's Note to Mom, she responds with a letter to Link thanking him for looking after him, as well as with a Piece of Heart.
Komali's grandmother is a Rito mentioned in passing in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. She was very close to her grandson and gave him Din's Pearl as a gift, and her death is a primary reason for his shy, withdrawn behavior when Link meets him. Additionally, she was Valoo's former attendant, with Medli as her apprentice.
The original Lulu, mother of the current Lulu, is a Zora mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. She was the lead singer of the previous iteration of the Indigo-Gos, with her most famous song being the Ballad of the Wind Fish. Additionally, she sang the New Wave Bossa Nova to her daughter when she was young. Her performance of Ballad of the Wind Fish is what inspired Gorman to go into showmanship.
Moe is a Moblin mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. He apparently gave lots of Skull Necklaces to Maggie when she was imprisoned in the Forsaken Fortress, and she ended up falling in love with him. She longs for him even after she is rescued, and continues to send him love letters. However, her father implicitly disapproves, and as such does not let postmen come into his house so she will not receive anything back from Moe. However, Link attains a foul-smelling letter from him to Maggie from Ilari, who had gotten it from the Forsaken Fortress (in spite of it being abandoned at that point). In his letter, Moe tells Maggie that he loves her so much he wants to eat her for dinner. While it is unclear whether this awkward declaration is a genuine statement of love or hunger, Maggie takes it as a marriage proposal.
Members of Mutoh's family are mentioned at different points in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. When Link uses the Couple's Mask to stop the arguing around Mayor Dotour's desk, Mutoh lets slip his wife has already fled. Additionally, if Link speaks to him while wearing Kafei's Mask while Mutoh is yelling at the Moon on the night of the final day, he mentions his sons have also fled.
The Postmaster is a character mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. In both appearances, he is the Postman's boss, and sends Link his first letter, asking him to treat the Postman well, as he is a very good worker.
The Seer, S.W. Potchit is a character mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker by a relief on Shark Island. Potchit states in his carving that all four switches on the island must be activated swiftly.
Spirits of good
The spirits of good are important characters in the backstory of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. They fought and imprisoned Malladus, the Demon King, with the chains binding him, the Spirit Tracks, being watched over by their servants, the Lokomo.
Talon's wife is mentioned in some optional dialogue in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. If Link speaks to Talon with either the Goron Mask or the Gerudo Mask, Talon will state it looks sort of like her, only to then say it actually does not look like her at all.
Tetra's mother is a character mentioned in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Nudge tells Link Tetra lost her mother at a very young age, and that the way Tetra managed to take charge in her stead in spite of everything is why she is so respected. When the ship is empty except for Niko, the player can see a portrait of a brown-haired woman in Tetra's cabin, possibly her mother.
Tortus is Anju's deceased father in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Her grandmother mistakes both her and Link for Tortus constantly, though it is implied she is only faking this senility to avoid Anju's awful cooking and to amuse herself.
