The Quadruplets[1] are the sons of Papahl and Mamasha in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. When spoken with, they will give advice, which sometimes breaks the fourth wall, before saying they are unsure as to what it means due to being "just a kid!" They can be found in various places across Mabe Village. Two of them play catch with a ball near the Village Library, and are the ones who tell Link that Madam MeowMeow's pet BowWow was stolen by Moblins. Midway through the game, a fifth Quadruplet will appear near the Weathercock. Speaking with him will reveal that he has never considered the possibility of there being anything outside Koholint Island. It is unclear whether this fifth Quadruplet is an oversight or an intentional hint that the island is actually just a dream.

In The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, all but one of the catch-playing Quadruplets have green clothes; the remaining one has red clothes. In the Nintendo Switch remake, they now have individual names and all wear white shirts, with their shorts being colored different. Their names are Joonya, Kidoh, Suhni, and Lattie, puns on the words "junior," "kiddo," "sonny," and "laddie" respectively, being all colloquial terms of endearment for small boys.

In The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the Quadruplets' "I'm just a kid" line is referenced by Gulley when he explains how saving works.
