Pumpkins are recurring Objects and Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[name reference needed] They occur sometimes as a visual element, sometimes as an item, sometimes as a breakable container, and sometimes as a combination of these. They appeared mainly as a recurring visual motif until Twilight Princess, where physical pumpkins and their products became considerably more important.

Location and Uses

Oracle of Ages

The first boss in Oracle of Ages is Pumpkin Head, who, as its name suggests, is a spirit with a pumpkin (specifically a Jack-o'-lantern) for a head. This continues the theme of pumpkins as a symbol of evil spirits seen in A Link to the Past.

Twilight Princess

Main article: Ordon Pumpkin

Pumpkins feature prominently in Twilight Princess as one of the main exports of Ordon Village. In Ordon Village, Link can find pumpkins in the fields. These can be smashed to get pumpkin seeds, which are the primary ammunition for the Slingshot. The scarecrows near Link's House also appear to have pumpkins for heads. An Ordon Pumpkin is also found in a chest in Snowpeak Ruins, although Yeta misremembered the chest as containing the Bedroom Key. When added to the Simple Soup, the Ordon Pumpkin converts it to Good Soup, which restores four hearts as opposed to two.

Skyward Sword

Pumpkins seem to be the primary agricultural product of Skyloftians in Skyward Sword. One of the islands in The Sky, Pumpkin Landing, being dedicated to growing pumpkins, as it is the home to a sizable (by Zelda game standards) pumpkin patch and the Lumpy Pumpkin, a pub specializing in Pumpkin Soup. Even the decor of the establishment is pumpkin-themed, as are the names of the father and daughter who staff it. Pumpkins can also be found on the main island of Skyloft in smaller patches. There is also a minigame in Skyward Sword involving pumpkins, that being Pumpkin Pull. As in Twilight Princess, pumpkins can be smashed, although they yield a variety of items, as Jars do.

Breath of the Wild
