- Not to be confused with Nyeve.
A cowardly member of the "Maritime Defense Force", Nyave can be found sailing in a ship in the southwestern part of the World of the Ocean King. When Link enters the ship, Nyave can be found lying on the ground, pretending to be dead, as Miniblins and a Geozard run around. If Link defeats them and rescues Nyave, he will reward him with several Treasures he picked up.[note 1] Nyave has a brother, Nyeve, who is a fan of Link. Nyave wants to be a cook like his older brother in order to get married.
- In the German translation, Nyave is named Naiv (meaning naïve), while Nyeve is left unnamed.
Nyave and his brother's names are plays on the words knave and naïve, respectively.

- If Link has a maximum of 99 for all the Treasures except for the Regal Ring, Nyave will only give him Regal Rings. However, if Link has 99 of all the Treasures including Regal Rings, Nyave will give him Big Green Rupees instead.
