This article is about the item in Link's Awakening. For other uses, see Banana (Disambiguation).

Bananas are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]

Location and Uses[]

Link's Awakening[]

The Bananas are the fourth item in the Trading Quest of Link's Awakening.[1] Bananas are available at Sale's House O' Bananas on Toronbo Shores.[2] Although Link can't purchase them, he may receive a bunch of Bananas by giving Sale his can of Dog Food,[1] who in turn gives him the bunch as thanks.[3]

The Bananas can then be given to Kiki, a hungry Monkey found near the moat of Kanalet Castle.[4][5] He will repay Link, with the help of his Monkey brethren, by building a bridge across the water moat giving Link access to Kanalet Castle.[1] Upon leaving, the Monkeys leave behind the Stick,[1] the next item in the Trading Sequence.[6]

Other Appearances[]

Ripened Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love[]

Bananas are used to lure down the Monkey Masaru from Trees. They cost 30 Rupees apiece, and can be bought from Shops located on Page 6, Page 7, and Page 8. However, the Shop will only sell them to Tingle while he is on Page 6.
