Ocean King
First appearance The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Other form(s) Oshus
“If not for you, I'd have been sealed up forever. This sea would have fallen into desolation and evil. You saved me and the great sea.”
Oshus, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

The Ocean King is a major character in The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. He is the true form of Oshus, and resembles a large white baleen whale with thick gray eyebrows and a light blue symbol resembling a water drop on the front of his head. The same symbol can be found throughout his eponymous temple.

Prior to the game's events, the Ocean King protected the sea of his world with three servant spirits, but his power attracted the parasitic monster Bellum. The two battled, but Bellum slowly drained his power until the Ocean King's only option was to seal them both at the bottom of the temple. His spirits, Leaf, Neri, and Ciela, were captured and imprisoned in temples, but the Ocean King managed to split Ciela's mind and personality from her powers and memories, taking care of the now-amnesiac fairy through a comparatively weak manifestation of his, that being Oshus. The "main" Ocean King remained trapped in the temple with Bellum, slowly being drained away. Oshus does not tell Ciela or anyone else of this until Link recovers Tetra's petrified body from the Ghost Ship.

At the end of the game, once Bellum has been destroyed, the Ocean King is fully restored. He shows up next to the wreckage of the Ghost Ship in his true form, surprising everyone. He then fulfills his promise to Linebeck about giving him a wish if he helped defeat Bellum. Instead of wishing for treasure, he wishes to be given back his ship, which Bellum had previously sunk with Oshus aboard. The Ocean King then tells Link and Tetra that his world and their world are in fact separate, and that they must each return to their own now. As a thick mist covers the shipwreck, he and the spirits depart, with Link and Tetra being sent back to their own world. At the very end, it is revealed that he sent Linebeck and his repaired ship there as well.
