The Know-It-All Brothers are three Kokiri brothers in Ocarina of Time.[1]


All three brothers are very intelligent, and they serve as the instructors of Ocarina of Time's game mechanics, presenting them clearly without patronizing the listener (one of them even prepares Link for the lengthy lecture he is about to begin).[2] They hang out inside their house near the Forest Training Center, always ready to help out inexperienced players, giving out somewhat useful information on how to use the sword.

Their physical figure is that of a male Kokiri model: typical Kokiri apparel with hats pointing up, locks of hair covering their eyes, and a mellow smile with a slight overbite. Their guardian fairies change color, much like that of other Kokiri.

The Know-It-All Brothers will comment on problems in the Kokiri Forest in Link's adult years;[3] though after the forest temple has been completed, they will comment on its improvements.[4]


  • Given that they live near the Forest Training Center and that the Kokiri Sword's chest sits near a signpost advertizing the Know-It-All Brothers' services,[1] it is possible that the Know-It-All Brothers own or manage the training center. Thus, it is also possible that the Kokiri in the Training Center is actually a fourth Know-It-All Brother.
