Maple, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons

Maple is a young witch who is the apprentice of Syrup.


The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/Ages[edit]

Maple OoS-OoA sprite.png

In both The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, Maple appears sporadically throughout the games, flying across certain overworld screens after 30 enemies are defeated (15 if Link is wearing Maple's Ring). If the two collide, Maple will be knocked away and a large amount of the pair's items will scatter. She will then scold him regardless of who ran into whom and attempt to grab as many items as she can as "repayment." She has varying dialogue depending on how much each collects, taunting him if she gets more, begrudgingly acknowledging him if they get around the same, getting angry if Link gets more, and simply saying "bye" after a pause on the rare chance all items fall into pits or water. She always goes after rarer drops first, with the rarest being a single Piece of Heart she occasionally drops. Other drops in order from most rare to most common are Gasha Seeds, Magic Rings, Magic Potions, Mystical Seeds, bombs, hearts, orange Rupees, and green Rupees. She starts out on a broomstick, but after they meet eight times, she replaces it with a vacuum cleaner in an unlinked game and a flying saucer with a tractor beam in a linked game; each ride goes faster, but tends to move more erratically.

Both games feature Maple as part of the trading sequence. In the former game, she wants a Lon Lon Egg, which she trades for her Ghastly Doll, and in the latter game, she wants a Touching Book (as her copy had been confiscated by Syrup), which she trades for her first Magic Oar. Both games' unlinked endings also feature a short scene involving Maple on her broom, with her crashing into the Maku Tree's nose-bubble in the former and stopping to listen to Nayru sing in the latter. She makes one additional appearance in Oracle of Seasons, flying on her broom over Syrup's Potion Shop when Din sets the seasons back to normal.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Game Boy Advance)[edit]

In The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the Game Boy Advance, Maple visually replaces the witch's assistant from the original game, and as such offers him Medicine of Life upon being spoken to.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds[edit]

In The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, it is implied the rendition of the witch character that appears in that game may be an elderly Maple, as the Lorulean version of her is called "Mapes" by the Fortune Teller.
