Agitha is a young, self-proclaimed princess around the age of 10. She lives in her Castle in Castle Town. She loves to dress in gothic-style clothes and pretend to be a princess of the insect kingdom in her own little castle house. She had sent out invitations to the Golden Bugs to come to her ball. There are twelve types of bugs, each species having both a male and female for 24 bugs total. She believes that they have each gotten lost on their way, so she requests that Link find all 24 Bugs for her. For each Bug Link gives her, she gives him 50 Rupees. For each time he completes a pair, she gives him 100 Rupees. When Link gives her the first Bug, she gives him the Big Wallet. After taking all 24 bugs to Agitha, Link receives the Giant Wallet. If Link leaves her castle when he still has Golden Bugs on hand, she will whisper that she knows he still has some, accompanied by a low growl.
In Twilight Princess HD, upon delivering half of the Bugs to her, she will give Link a Stamp of her that can be used in Miiverse. Additionally, if Link obtains a Wallet upgrade from the Cave of Shadows before obtaining both Wallet upgrades from Agitha, she will reward him with the Colossal Wallet upon bringing her all 24 Bugs.
Although she is a bit delusional, she is very kind and caring. She is one of the few characters who is not afraid of Wolf Link, but rather, asks if he would like to play with her, as she thinks he is a puppy. She apologizes for not being able to speak puppy, indicating she thinks that Wolf Link wants to tell her something. Sometimes she can be found outside the southern gates of Hyrule Castle Town during the daytime before Link has brought her all 24 Bugs; she states she is looking for bugs in the flowers. This is the only time she carries her trademark parasol and basket with her. If Link speaks to her around sunset when she is walking back to the city, she says she is heading home and if Link wants to talk to her, he should come visit her at her posh castle.
- The first time Link talks to Agitha, she thinks he is an insect. The insect she calls Link depends on the tunic he is wearing. It can be a giant grasshopper, jewel beetle, or scarab beetle. The third result is impossible to see in the original game because Link cannot afford the Magic Armor's 598 Rupee price without the Big Wallet. In Twilight Princess HD it is possible to obtain the Big Wallet from the Cave of Shadows to obtain the Magic Armor before talking to her.
- In Hyrule Warriors, Agitha claims to have learned how to pick locks from termites.
Agitha's name may be based on the Agatha genus of snails.
