Thadd is a character in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Thadd is a cautious villager who guards Hateno Village's gate. Upon seeing Link, he will brandish his Farmer's Pitchfork and warily ask who he is.[2][3] Realizing that Link is a Hylian, he will apologize and give him directions to Hateno Village's General Store and Inn.[4]

If he is spoken to again, Thadd can answer a couple of questions. He will give a description of Hateno Village as a whole, though he is unable to give specifics.[5] Thadd points out that the village is highly responsive to tourism.[6] However, he advises Link against visiting the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab on the hill overlooking the village.[7]

Although Link can ask Thadd to show him the village, he will turn the hero down at once. [8] He will apologize afterward for his behavior,[9] stating that although his work is important, it is not difficult.[10] Still, he will adamantly refuse to use his time giving Link a tour,[11] directing him to Seldon instead.[12]

As night rolls in, Thadd continues to guard despite his sleepiness.[13][14] He is at the village entrance no matter the hour, never sleeping.

  2. "Who are you?! Be on your way, you...suspicious man!" — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  3. "Who... Who are you?! I demand answers! If you're up this late, you're probably up to no good!" — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  4. "Hrm? You certainly do appear to be a Hylian like the rest of us... Hylians are generally good folk, so... Sorry for getting all worked up... You're free to go. We're just a waypoint on your winding road, huh? Ah, the life of a traveler. Well, you can get most things you need at the general store, and the inn is just back there." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  5. "[Where am I?] This is the town of greenery and dyes, Hateno Village. Can a place be a village AND a town? Anyway... The vegetables taste good. The air smells good... What else... All kinds of points of interest I'm forgetting..." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  6. "Travelers tend to spend their money here, so that's good! Yeah! The village folk welcome THAT with open arms!" — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  7. "But... A little advice? Don't go near the place up the hill in the rear of the village. There's a yappy old woman there." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  8. "[Show me around!] Not likely! I'm on guard duty, Buster! Serious business! No time for tours! Grumble..." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  9. "Sorry for the yelling...and the grumbling." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  10. "This village is pretty peaceful, so it's not like guard duty is all that harrowing." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  11. "But you're GRAVELY mistaken if you think people with free time are itching to give village tours." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  12. "Try looking for a burly old guy called Seldon. He'll probably fall all over himself to show you around." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  13. "Phwaaa... So sleepy." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
  14. "Wha? Oh, it's just you..." — Thadd (Breath of the Wild)
