— Golden Chief Cylos

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Golden Chief Cylos lives on the Uncharted Island where he leads the Golden Frogs. He is aware of Oshus's true identity as the Ocean King, for he is good friends with him; for this reason he feels eager to help Link during his quest to defeat Bellum. He gives Link the Cyclone Slate, which can be used to travel the seas much quicker than previously possible by drawing certain patterns unto the slate.

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.

It is possible that Golden Chief Cylos is somehow connected to Cyclos and Zephos from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. This is likely because they are all overgrown frogs who seem to have wind-related powers. Also, Phantom Hourglass and The Wind Waker take place in the same timeline, which furthers this theory. One possibility is that he is Cyclos' counterpart in the World of the Ocean King.
