The Runaway Item Seller is a character in A Link Between Worlds.[name reference needed]


The Runaway Item Seller ran the Item Shop in Kakariko Village, until he spent almost every Rupee he had to buy an Apple from the Street Merchant.[1][2] After that, his wife got mad at him,[3] so he decided to run away and hide in a cave.[4] He can be found north of the swamp and south of Link's House, left of the northern entrance of the area. The entrance to his cave is completely concealed, and can only be accessed by placing a Bomb between the two rocks that sit in front of it. Unlike most caves of this type, there is no crack or boulder indicating its location. He is surprised that Link managed to get inside.[5]

He requests that Link bring him a Scoot Fruit so he can escape to a Dungeon.[6] If Link brings him the fruit, he will be rewarded with a Silver Rupee.[7]
