Main appearance(s)

Herb is a character in The Minish Cap.[1]


Herb is a rich Figurine collector who owns the Music House, the largest house in Hyrule Town.[2][3] He does not appear until after Link has seen the spirit of Gustaf at Lake Hylia; from that point until the end of the game, he can be found sitting at a table outside Mama's Cafe.

If Link collects 130 Figurines, Herb will reward him by letting him inside the Music House,[3] which contains a Piece of Heart, three Treasure Chests with 200 Rupees in each, and a Phonograph.

He is one of the potential characters to have a random Kinstone Fusion available.[4]


Herbs are used for making tea. Herb's Japanese name, オーレ (Ō Re), is the Japanese spelling of "au lait".
