“Heh heh heh... Soon I shall make a killing off this town...”

Purlo is a character in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. He is a scam artist who runs the STAR Game in the eastern park of Hyrule Castle Town.

Purlo's STAR game involves collecting glowing orbs (or STARs) inside a cage. He designed the game so that it is impossible to complete without the use of equipment. Link can only complete the first level with the Clawshot. In doing so, Purlo becomes both surprised and annoyed at Link's accomplishment. Link is rewarded the Big Quiver, and Purlo vows to make the second level of STAR Game even harder. The second level requires Link to use the Double Clawshot to win. Completing it earns Link another Quiver upgrade, the Giant Quiver, and Purlo, being annoyed that Link managed to complete his game, mutters for Link to not come again. After this, whenever Link beats his previous time record while playing the STAR Game, he wins 100 Rupees.

During the time when Hyrule Castle Town is engulfed in twilight, Wolf Link can eavesdrop on Purlo outside of the STAR Game tent. Purlo is heard muttering to himself that his intent behind running the STAR Game is to make lots of money. If Wolf Link talks to Purlo, he shows himself to be more worried about his canine allergies than Wolf Link's otherwise frightening appearance. Even then, Purlo calls Wolf Link an idiot and demands him to not come any closer. If Wolf Link talks to Purlo again, Purlo says to him, "Shoo! Begone! Go thence!"

  • Purlo is a reference to Tingle, both due to his physical characteristics, such as a green outfit, pointed hat, a watch on his belt, a mole on his left cheek, and his love for money. In an interview, Eiji Aonuma described Purlo as being a realistic version of Tingle.[1]
