Fado from Twilight Princess

Fado is a character in Twilight Princess.[2]


Fado is responsible for running the Ordon Ranch. He teaches Link to ride Epona by setting up fences for practice.[3] As goats never listen to him,[4] he often asks Link to help him by herding them.[5][6] After Link restores light to the Eldin Province and gets Epona back, Fado gives him a Piece of Heart if he herds 20 goats into the barn in less than three minutes.[7]

Fado is last seen during the ending credits calling to Link's empty house.


  • According to series producer Eiji Aonuma, Fado's house cannot be accessed as they did not have enough time to create the room inside.[8]
