After speaking to Mrs. Marie about them, she will request that Link talk some sense into them. He obliges, and talks to the leader of the Killer Bees, a boy named [[Ivan]], who says he'll do what Link says, but only if he can best the group of boys in a game of [[Hide-and-Seek|hide-and-seek]]. The children scatter themselves around the island, and Link chases each one. After finding them all, they admit defeat and promise to attend school remarking how they may have lost their touch.

After giving Mrs. Marie the good news, the children show some affection for the teacher, and mention her birthday is approaching. One of the Killer Bees will remark that they should get her a gift, but Ivan rejects the idea saying, "''We ain't no teachers pets!''". He does, however, mention to Link that Mrs. Marie is interested in [[Joy Pendants]] lately, and that he remembers seeing one climbing a tree the other day.
Some items that Link can obtain are as follows:
+
*A [[Sail]] (''required'')
+
When Link rolls into a tree nearby the Bomb Shop, a Joy Pendant pops out of the top of the tree, and the Killer Bees reappear telling him they were planning to give it to Mrs. Marie all along, but that Link should have it instead if he would give it to her for them. When Link does give Mrs. Marie the Joy Pendant, she is overcome with happiness, and thanks Link, but tells him she would really like twenty of them. If Link is in the possession of the twenty Joy Pendants, he can give them to Mrs. Marie who will grant him the [[Cabana Deed]] which gives him access to the cabana at the [[Private Oasis]]. If Link gives her twenty more, she will give Link [[Hero's Charm]].

The largest landmark on Windfall Island, the windmill is home to several [[Piece of Heart|Pieces of Heart]] and a few minor characters as well. [[Salvatore]], a depressed man, runs a sort of target mini-game on the ground floor inside the windmill, where Link can win various items. [[Kreeb]], a self-proclaimed windmill enthusiast, can be found outside the windmill at night. If Link can reactivate the windmill by combining wind and a switch to turn the large machine on, Kreeb will be very excited, telling Link the windmill up and started by itself. Now running, the windmill regains it power as a sort of ferris wheel.
*Fourteen [[Piece of Heart|Pieces of Heart]]

Link can now take a ride on one of the carts and ride up the the top, where can shoot a [[Fire Arrow]] into the doused lighthouse, which will illuminate and act once again as a lighthouse to sea-faring boats in need of assistance. After speaking with Kreeb again, he will proclaim this as a great turn of events, and grant Link a Piece of Heart in his happiness.
  +
  +
With the lighthouse now operational, Link can visit the side of the Bomb Shop and turn the direction of the wind to face a small island just off the shore, that houses a now visible [[Treasure Chest]]. If Link uses his [[Deku Leaf]] to fly to the island, he can open the chest to obtain yet another Piece of Heart.

When Link first arrives on Windfall after a failed invasion attempt at the Forsaken Fortress, he can visit the Windfall Jail to find a mysteriously short man inside a jail cell.

Link can later visit him at [[Tingle Island]] for his help in deciphering the Triforce Charts he has found around the [[Great Sea]], like the one found inside the cabana at the Private Oasis.

{{main|Bomb Shop}}

A small focal point in the middle of the plotline, the Bomb Shop serves as merely an overpriced shop when Link visits it before finding destruction at [[Greatfish Isle]]. After Link discovers [[Jabun]] has fled Greatfish Isle, he goes in search of the [[Tetra's Pirates|pirates]] who are rumored to have something to do with it. When Link finds their ship docked at Windfall, but they nowhere to be found, he takes the secret entrance from the back of the Bomb Shop to discover them inside, stealing [[Cannon]]'s [[bomb]]s. Link can witness several key plot points during this scene, and after being seen by [[Tetra]], is saved from racing against the pirates to [[Outset Island]] by Tetra's agreement that the pirates should stay the night at Windfall, only to leave first thing in the morning.
  +
  +
Luckily, because of the curse placed on Greatfish, nighttime has not stopped since Link's visit, and the pirates appear nowhere to be found.

By shattering dishes or rolling into a wall, Garrickson will jump allowing Link to take a picture of him in the right situation.

At night, the café is filled with pirates that discuss the issues of the Great Sea, along with Gillian, who remarks that Link is too young to understand.

Revision as of 20:55, July 19, 2009

Windfall Island is a location from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The most populated island on the Great Sea, it is a thriving market town, in which the most notable feature is the windmill, which also acts as a ferris wheel and lighthouse. Aside from the windmill, however, there is also a potion shop, a school, a Bomb Shop, a café, a jail and an auction house.

Link visits Windfall Island at least twice during his quest; the first time to purchase a sail after being rescued by the King of Red Lions, and a second time to discover the fate of Jabun from Tetra's Pirates.

Theories

Theory warning: This section contains theoretical information based on the research of one or several other users. It has not been officially verified by Nintendo and its factual accuracy is disputed.

Kakariko Remains

The windmill and the nearby location of Dragon Roost Island (which is speculated to be Death Mountain) and Spectacle Isle (thought to be Spectacle Rock) has led players to the conclusion that Windfall Island is possibly what remains of Kakariko Village.

Other supporting evidence includes that when entering Kakariko Village in Ocarina of Time there is a tree in front of the entrance. Coincidently, there is also a tree in Windfall Island. Also, the Hero's Mask item is obtained at Windfall. The eyes on this mask resemble Sheikah Symbols and Kakariko was once a Sheikah village. Also, Mutoh stands in front of a tree in Ocarina of Time; Mila's Father, who has a slight resemblence to Mutoh, stands in front of what is believed to be the same tree. Finally, since Impa's home is one of the only buildings in Kakariko Village, it may now be Lenzo's home or Mila's Home if Windfall Island is indeed Kakariko Village. Also the music played on Windfall Island has several similarities to Kakariko Village's music.

Graveyard Remains

The remains of the graveyard in Kakariko Village is also possibly located on Windfall Island: one remaining grave, which is the tombstone that Tott continously dances in front of. It is possible that there used to be more graves, but since the tombstone is located at the tip of a slightly uneven cliff, the rest of the graveyard may actually be underwater due to erosion and weathering of the cliff.
