The Gatekeeper,[1] also knows as Friendly Pikku,[2] is a character in A Link to the Past & Four Swords.


The Gatekeeper appears inside the Palace of the Four Sword blocking the path forward.[3] When talked to, it asks for 20 Rupees in exchange for a hint.[4] After defeating Ganon and completing Four Swords, the Gatekeeper will allow Link to continue through the Palace after paying the 20 Rupee fee.[5] The Gatekeeper vanishes afterwards.
