"Long ago, Salvatore hoped to be a famous painter, but that dream didn't last long. He eventually returned to his hometown and came up with his current business plan. It's been a huge success, allowing him to purchase his own island, where he has opened up a second store in what he hopes will become a huge chain. He's now busy trying to think up that one idea that will spark his next big endeavor."

Salvatore is a recurring character in the Legend of Zelda series. He runs several mini-games in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. He usually re-enacts the objectives of his mini-games with costumes and cut-outs. Link appears to be his only customer. He appears to be bored with his job in The Wind Waker, and to a lesser extent, Phantom Hourglass, though he usually seems to enjoy acting.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

In his first appearance, Salvatore runs the Sinking Ships mini-game on Windfall Island. He also manages the Barrel Shoot mini-game on Spectacle Island. Humorously, during the Sinking Ships game, when Link hits a squid, Salvatore shouts out "KABOOM!" But if Link misses, he says in a disappointed and low-pitched voice: "splooosh!" Salvatore's cardboard cutouts include a Windfall Island resident and children in Sinking Ships and Gonzo and Tetra in Barrel Shoot.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

In the direct sequel to The Wind Waker, Salvatore runs the Cannon Game on the eastern side of Bannan Island. In order to actually find his booth, Link must pass through a cave on the island after obtaining the bombs.
