The Giant Turtle is a very old creature that spends most of its time asleep, disguising itself as a small island in the Great Bay. Despite this, it is aware of everything that is going on in the ocean. The Giant Turtle is also aware of Link's ability to change his shape and his quest to save Termina. As such, it offers to take Link to the Great Bay Temple when it is awoken by the "New Wave Bossa Nova" played by Zora Link. Link can them climb on its back by shooting the Hookshot at its palm trees. When Link defeats the temple's boss, Gyorg, and helps the third Giant, the Giant Turtle informs Link that he will go back into his slumber after listening to Lulu sing.
