Main appearance(s)

The Miner's House is a location in A Link Between Worlds. It is located west of Death Mountain and east of the Lost Woods in Hyrule. It is the workplace and home of Rosso.


The Miner's House cannot be entered by Link before Yuga captures Hyrule Castle, because Rosso is away mining ore at Death Mountain and has locked the door. The building is surrounded by countless rocks which, according to Rosso, appeared when he came home from his mining expedition – presumably having been shot out of the mountain during an eruption.[1] If Link talks to Rosso after his initial encounter with him, he will give him the Power Glove.[2][3] It can be used to lift the rocks outside, after which Link is rewarded by Rosso with a chest containing a Purple Rupee.[4][5][6] After cracks begin to appear across Hyrule, one appears in the Miner's House that gives access to the northwest region of Lorule. The Lorule equivalent of the Miner's House is a dilapidated building with no inhabitants.

  1. "I was on the mountain mining ore when, all of a sudden, the earth started shaking! When I got home, the place was a wreck. Rocks everywhere." — Rosso (A Link Between Worlds)
  2. "You seen outside? I'll be bustin' my back for days to clean up that mess. At least pickin' up rocks and smashin' the things feels pretty good. Wish they were full of good ore, though. What? You want to try too? Rah! Feels good smashin' stuff! Huh? Can't do it? Sorry to hear it. Can't stand to see a nice kid like you not be able to throw your weight around... Here-take this. It's a hand-me-down from yours truly." — Rosso (A Link Between Worlds)
  3. "You got the Power Glove! Now you can pick up small rocks!" — N/A (A Link Between Worlds)
  4. "Wh-where have all those darned rocks got to? Oh-ho! You went ahead and did the job for me! I gotta thank you for all that. Come on in, OK?" — Rosso (A Link Between Worlds)
  5. "Glad to share what's in that chest with you. You earned it, kid!" — Rosso (A Link Between Worlds)
  6. "You got a Purple Rupee! It's worth 50 Rupees! Now how about that?!" — N/A (A Link Between Worlds)
