Main appearance(s)

Robsten is a character in Breath of the Wild.


Robsten is a Hylian man who can be found at the Kara Kara Bazaar. Robsten is part of a group of traveling Hylian merchants, with Benja as their leader. He is stranded at the Kara Kara Bazaar because men are not allowed into Gerudo Town.[1][2] When Link first speaks to Robsten, he asks whether Link is a merchant or a traveler.[3] If Link says he is a merchant, he says that he is also a merchant and concludes that Link must also be stranded at the Bazaar.[4][1] If Link says he is a traveler, Robsten just explains that he is a merchant.[5] Robsten then continues to explain that his group wanted to sell their goods at Gerudo Town, but were not allowed in because they are men.[6][2] Their leader, Benja, went to Gerudo Town to negotiate and figure out a way to get into the town.[7][8] Robsten says that their leader has not come back yet, speculating that he is still figuring out a way to get inside.[9] Robsten feels that Gerudo Town is so close, yet so far.[10] He also comments that most travelers cannot get farther than the Town because of the Divine Beast Vah Naboris.[11] If Link speaks to Robsten while wearing the Gerudo Set, he is shocked to see him and thinks he is a girl.[12] Robsten then asks Link if he is there by himself, commenting that the Desert is dangerous.[13] Robsten promises to be there for him if he is ever afraid.[14]

If Link speaks to Robsten while searching for the man who discovered a way into Gerudo Town, Robsten is expressing worry that their boss has not returned from Gerudo Town and speculates that he will not be coming back that day.[15][16] When Link informs Robsten with Benja's news about the man who sneaks into Gerudo Town and travels between the Town and the Bazaar,[17][18] Robsten is surprised and says that it must be true if his boss says so.[19] Robsten claims to have never seen a sneaky guy around the Bazaar,[20] but does recall seeing a pretty Hylian girl at the general store who dresses like a Gerudo.[21] Robsten then wonders where she bought the Gerudo clothes and wonders if wearing them would allow him to sneak into Gerudo Town,[22] but quickly dismisses the idea.[23][24]

After Link calms Naboris, Robsten sits beside Benja and says that he never figured out how to sneak into Gerudo Town.[25]
