|The Great Tripini|
The Great Tripini appears in the north-east of the town of Hytopia, near its bridge leading to the castle. He recommends that Link should turn on SpotPass for the game, and suggests they should visit the Drablands sometime.
After downloading the 2.0.0. update, the Great Tripini informs Link that an unnamed group of people have just discovered a new Area of the Drablands, called the Den of Trials. He also informs Link about other new content, including a rumored Outfit at the bottom of the Den of Trials, Madame Couture's latest project: Linebeck's Uniform, and new Stamps for the Miiverse. The Great Tripini can later be found in the Den of Trials, where he explains to the Links how they advance in the Area.
Tripini is derived from the word trip, to go on a journey or exploration. This refers to his role in announcing new Areas, and suggesting that Link visit them. The Great Tripini is also a play on Harry Houdini, a famous illusionist and stunt performer.
