Grandma Yahoo,(LANS)[2] also known as Grandma Ulrira,(LA | LADX)[1] is a character in Link's Awakening.


Link's Awakening

Grandma Yahoo is an elderly woman who enjoys sweeping with her broom. She lives in Mabe Village with her husband, Grandpa Ulrira, and does most of the work outside their house. She later travels to Animal Village. At one point, she breaks her broom from the amount of sweeping she does.[3] Link can give her the Broom he received from Mr. Write. If he does, she will reward him with the Fishing Hook she found while sweeping the river bank.[4][5][6]

Other Appearances

Link's Awakening (Cagiva)

In the Link's Awakening manga by Ataru Cagiva, Grandma Yahoo appears sweeping as Link is stroling around Mabe Village.


Grandma Yahoo likely gets her name from the exclamation she makes at the start of her dialogue.[7]
