Zeffa is a character in The Minish Cap.[2]


Zeffa is a blue Bird that swoops down and Warps Link to any one of the activated Wind Crests scattered across Hyrule.[3] Link can summon Zeffa by using the Ocarina of Wind, which is obtained after defeating Mazaal in the Fortress of Winds.



Zeffa may come from ゼッファー (Zeffā), a transliteration of the English word "Zephyr," meaning a gentle breeze or west wind.
