Tingle is recurring character in the The Legend of Zelda series. He has many different incarnations through out the series. Tingle completely obsessed about "forests fairies", with him wanting to find fairies and eventually becoming one. Along the way working with maps.


Tingle is a pudgy middle-aged man with pale skin, dark brown hair and brown eyes. He has a pointy goatee, rosy pink cheeks, a bright orange nose and a mole on the left side of his chin. Though his appearance may confuse some, he is actually a human with a normally shaped head contrast to what his costume may portray. He has round ears, a bowl haircut and a hairy chest.

As for his attire, Tingle wears a tight green suit with a pointed hood and ears. He also wears green boots that grant Tingle immunity to fall damage, red trunks with a brown belt with a grey buckle, a necklace with a blue watch that is permanently. stuck at 4 O'clock. His suit also has a yellow cobra on the back of it, it's purpose is to scare off anybody tries to threat Tingle.

Tingle's attire in Majora's Mask is different than his Wind Waker incarnation. He doesn't wear boots, instead his bodysuit covers his feet, he wears a blue backpack with brown straps and other minor changes to his costume. Since Young Link's height was found to be 5'3" in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, this would make Tingle in his Majora's Mask incarnation about 5'7".


Tingle is a 35-year-old man who is completely obsessed with "forest fairies". Tingle is normally seen floating around on his red balloon, drawing and selling maps for his father, who runs the Southern Swamp pictograph contest and sees Tingle as "a fool". He is also known for his catchphrase: "Tingle, Tingle! Kooloo-Limpah!". Tingle appears to have a fixation for Rupees and other similar collectibles, such as Force Gems in Four Swords Adventures and Kinstones in The Minish Cap. In Majora's Mask, Tingle can be found around Termina selling maps, and in The Wind Waker, he translates Triforce Maps for a high price, among other things.


Not much is known about his childhood, but in Majora's Mask, an old family photo on his father's counter in the Swamp Tourist Center, which shows him as a child holding a balloon in one hand and holding his father's hand in the other. He is seen wearing the same suit he is seen wearing as an adult.
