The Adventure of Link
In The Adventure of Link, Error is a citizen of Ruto Town. At first, Error only introduces himself when talked to, but after Link meets a second man in Mido Town and is encouraged to ask Error about how to get to the Island Palace, Error will tell Link about the passage to the palace south of the king's tomb.
The sprite design for Error is used for characters in other towns who can sometimes be similarly unhelpful, although a few of them give Link very useful hints about using the Fire Spell or finding the Three-Eye Rock Palace.
Defenders of the Triforce
Error's name is meant to form a pun with that of Bagu whose name is the Japanese spelling of a computer "bug." In the Japanese version of The Adventure of Link, Error makes the less vague statement "My name is Error..." (Ore no na wa Erā da...). His name is written エラー (Erā), the Japanese way of writing the English word "error." Only Error's name properly transferred over during the English localization.
