Nyeve, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Nyeve is an aspiring hero in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. He can be found in his ship, the Prince of Red Lions in the Northwestern Sea. Like his younger brother, Nyave, he wields a pitchfork, but wears an imitation of Link's clothes with a few notable differences. He seems to believe he is actually the hero and Link is the imitator, as he assumes Link is a fan of his and offers to "train" him. By accepting his offer, merely hitting him will cause him to panic and declare Link "one-fourth of a hero." Link needs to repeat this process a few times, with Nyeve becoming more aggressive and taking more hits starting with the third time. On the fourth time, Link needs to hit him 100 times while avoiding Nyeve's own attacks, with three hits on Link ending it; this test is similar to Orca's in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Due to the reach of his pitchfork, Link will do better to duck sideways instead of running straight away when he prepares an attack. If Link's third point of damage is taken after 100 hits against Nyeve have been made, Nyeve is exhausted and flustered and asks if he is insane, but then composes himself and gives a Piece of Heart, declaring him true hero material. This test can be repeated as often as the player likes; getting an amount of hits in the 100s gets him a treasure, and above that range a ship part. If the player hits him 999 times in one go, the counter will stop increasing, though the player can still hit him.

According to his brother, Nyeve is also a great cook. Nyeve takes part in the game's trading sequence; by giving him the Hero's New Clothes, which he can actually see, the player receives a kaleidoscope from him. He at first claims it was a gift from his little sister, referencing Link getting the telescope from Aryll, but then admits he merely found it floating along the surface of the ocean.
