The Crenel Hermit is a character appearing in The Minish Cap.[2]


The Crenel Hermit resides high up on Mount Crenel.[3] His cave abode is built into the Crenel Wall section of the mountain. Upon meeting Link, he notes that specific patterned walls about the face of Mount Crenel are susceptible to Bomb explosions,[4] yielding secret passageways that hide Rupees and Pieces of Heart, among other rewards. Link can also Fuse Kinstones with him.[5][6]
