Template:Character Aba is a young girl that appears in Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. She's the only recognizable Hylian in the game and is an excellent fighter. She is good friends with the other children in Port Town: Missy, Chiko, Dave, "Big Bro" and Paul.

Biography

Tingle meets Aba early in his quest in Hometown Prairie after leaving Port Town. Aba warns him that he is going to die,[1] though she immediately retracts this as a joke, and offers to teach Tingle how to fight.[2] If Tingle accepts, she has him fight against a rubber toy for practice.[3] When Tingle wins, she instructs him to fight against Shiyou Rats and Eyelid Pigs.[4] After Tingle defeats those, she tasks him with fighting two enemies at once.[5]

Aba later appears again in Sunshine Seashore, where she teaches him more advanced battling, and in Lon Lon Meadow, where she informs him about the whereabouts of Missy.

Aba appears her again in the Deku Forest, where it is revealed that she is the daughter of Junglo, the old forest hero. After saving the Deku Tree Sprout, Junglo tells Tingle that Aba isn't actually his daughter, but that he found her as a baby in the arms of her dead mother. Because he didn't know what else to do, he raised her as his own. Aba overhears this conversation, however, and becomes furious at Junglo for lying about her past and decides to run away.

Fortunately, she had thrown away the dagger in her anger first and Tingle finds it just outside of Junglo's house. Tingle brings it to the only person who knows anything about weapons, the Armourer. When he sees the dagger, however, he immediately insists that Tingle tells him where he got the dagger and, after hearing the answer, runs off to Deku Forest.

The Armourer and Aba meet near the Cherry Tree Family and he reveals that he was, in fact, her father. Years ago, his wife was fed up with his obsession with weapons and fighting. Taking Aba with her, she left him and went to the Deku Forest.

Aba argues with him and the two quickly begin fighting. However, they are evenly matched, and each is impressed at the other's strength. They decide to return to Port Town together. As they leave, Junglo comes to say goodbye to Aba, to which she replies with "Bye, Forest Dad!"

Aba and Link

Theory Warning

It is not unlikely that Vanpool designed Aba to be a reference to Link, whether as an own interpretation or a possible relative. The reasons for this theory are:

  1. The game is set completely in the Zelda universe.
  2. Aba is the only recognizable Hylian in the entire game.
  3. She has similar brownish blond hair and blue eyes as Link in Twilight Princess and her most prominent piece of clothing is a green cape.
  4. She is an excellent fighter.
  5. Her backstory is quite similar to Link's backstory in Ocarina of Time. Aba's mother entered the Deku Forest with her baby when she was trying to get away from the fighting. She died and left her child in the care of a/the protector of the forest.
  6. Her little jingle is similar to the main theme of the Zelda series.

  3. "Okay! Over here! Listen up! A battle starts when you bump into a monster! Take a deep breath and get ready for battle! Got it? You don't look like much of a fighter... Hmm... Let's star you off with a rubber toy! Let battle commence!" — Aba (Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland)
  4. "Good job! It was only a rubber toy but that's the idea. Okay, what's next? Quick! Over here!" — Aba (Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland)
  5. "Next up you have to battle 2 monsters at the same time! The important thing is footwork! To battle monsters at the same time you need to use the +Control Pad. While you have a smoke cloud around you, move to battle other monsters. You will lose more power but you'll get other things... Don't worry now about what those are... Here come two opponents! Move fast and get them both involved in the battle." — Aba (Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland)
