Dampé's Shack is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2] Dampé's Shacks serve as the home for Dampé.

Features and Overview

Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch

Dampé's Shack appears in place of the Photographer's house from Link's Awakening DX at Tal Tal Heights in Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch. Inside his Shack, Dampé constructs Chambers for Chamber Dungeons, which he allows Link to arrange and explore.

Ocarina of Time

Dampé's Shack is located in the Kakariko Graveyard, known as the Gravekeeper's Hut. Young Link can only enter it during Dampé's Heart-Pounding Gravedigging Tour, which is from 6 P.M. to 9 P.M; otherwise, Dampé will tell the young hero that he is either sleeping or that the gravedigging tour is over. The only interactive object inside the hut is the Gravekeeper's Diary, which mentions how Dampé found a treasure that stretches and goes "boing!".

Once Link turns into an adult, he will be able to enter the hut at any time. Upon reading the Diary again, the gravekeeper prompts the reader to seek out his grave and enter it, whereupon he will let them have his treasure: the Hookshot.[3]

Majora's Mask

Appearing again in Majora's Mask, the shack is found in the northern portion of the Ikana Graveyard. It can only be accessed from beneath the grave accessible on the night of the Third Day.

Four Swords Adventures

In Four Swords Adventures, the shack is found within the Graveyard in the northern Swamp. Here, Dampé tells the Links about the Dark Mirror which a dark tribe was sealed away in long ago.

The Minish Cap

Dampé's Shack is located within the Royal Valley in The Minish Cap. Link must obtain a key from Dampé in order to enter the Royal Crypt.
