Crenel Hermit
A hermit who lives on Mount Crenel.
He has lots of Kinstone pieces.
He brags that he won the festival
tournament when he was younger.

The Crenel Hermit resides in a cave high up on Mount Crenel;[3] his cave is built into the northwestern section of the Crenel Wall. Upon meeting Link, he notes that specific patterned walls about the face of Mount Crenel are susceptible to Bombs explosions,[4] yielding secret passageways that hide Rupees and Pieces of Heart, among other rewards.

He is one of the potential characters to have a random Kinstone Fusion available.[5]
