Ankle
Birthplace: Unknown
Favorite Proverb: "One may as well hang for a stolen sheep as for a stolen lamb."

Since being taught how to decipher maps by his older brother Tingle, Ankle has been supporting his good-for-nothing twin brother Knuckle.

The only time he feels he can truly be himself is when he's tending to the Tingle Island flower garden.

Ankle resides at the top of Tingle Tower in The Wind Waker. Ankle considers his twin brother Knuckle to be lazy and good-for-nothing, was taught how to decipher Maps by his older brother, Tingle.[1] He helps David Jr. to spin Tingle Tower. He initially mistakes Link for Tingle, saying that he was very worried about him.[4] The only time he feels he can truly be himself is when he's tending to the flower garden on Tingle Island. His favorite proverb is One may as well hang for a stolen sheep as for a stolen lamb.[5] Unlike Tingle, he wears pink and the mole on his face is above his mouth rather than below it. In addition, the rosy patches on his cheeks are completely filled in.

Four Swords Adventures



The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, Ankle appears on a ledge in Lon Lon Ranch, where he offers to Fuse Kinstone Pieces with Link.[6] When Link successfully Fuses Kinstone Pieces with him,[7] the northeastern most Tree in the group of four Trees in North Hyrule Field will open with a chamber containing a room with a switch connected to a Torch and a Treasure Chest with a Kinstone Piece.[8]

Ankle worries about Knuckle and his whereabouts.[9] When spoken to afterwards, Ankle will tell Link how many Kinstones he has left to fuse.[10]
