Biography

Grandma Ulrira is an elderly woman who enjoys sweeping with her broom. She lives in Mabe Village with her husband, Grandpa Ulrira, and does most of the work outside their house. She later travels to Animal Village.[verification needed] At one point, she breaks her broom from the amount of sweeping she does.[2] Link can give her the Broom he received from Mr. Write. If he does, she will reward him with the Fishing Hook she found while sweeping the river bank.[3][4][5]

Trivia

  • In the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console release, her dialogue is altered to remove the exclamation "YAHOO!"[6][7][8] This was likely done to avoid accidentally referencing the internet search company Yahoo!, which was founded the year after the original release.[9]
