Main appearance(s)

Hintobo is a character in Phantom Hourglass.[1]


Hintobo is an Anouki who lives on the Isle of Frost. It lurks around in the Anouki Estates and will give Link a hint that will help him discover the disguised Yook for 100 Rupees. It will help Link to exclude three of the six Anouki by telling him that he should focus on the ones accusing others of lying, which are Aroo, Gumo or Kumu. The Yook does later on turn out to be Aroo.[2][3]


Hintobo's name derives from the word "hint".
