Spookter & Spekter
Ghosts from the Royal Valley. The one
in the blue cap is Spookter, and the
one in the red cap is Spekter. Spookter
tries to be scary, but he's just not.

Spookter is Spekter's brother.[1] He lives in Hyrule Town, where he blocks a Minish-sized entrance to Anju's Henhouse. He attempts to scare Link whenever spoken to,[2] but gradually becomes more and more disinterested in scaring people,[3][4] eventually admitting to being scared himself after Vaati transforms Hyrule Castle into Dark Hyrule Castle.[5]

After Fusing Kinstone Pieces with Spekter in the Royal Valley, Spookter disappears from the game,[6] allowing Link to enter the Henhouse while Minish-sized.


  • When Fusing Kinstone Pieces with his brother Spekter, Spekter's name is incorrectly labeled as Spookter.
  • A similar mistake is made after this Kinstone Fusion is completed; Spookter refers to Spekter as his own name.[6]
