Greatfish Isle,[1] also formatted as Great Fish Isle,[2] is an island of the Great Sea in The Wind Waker. Once the location of a peaceful village of Hyruleans and Jabun, it is now a horrific wreck after being demolished by Ganondorf. Jabun fled the island and headed for Outset Island. Now, the only residents are a Traveling Merchant and the Korok Linder.

Features and Overview

Before the Great Flood, Greatfish Isle was Lake Hylia.[3]

Fishman's Comment

Hoy! Small fry!

Greatfish Isle

You should come around these parts on nights when just a wee bit of the left half of the moon is missing. ... That's when IT appears, fry!

Greatfish Isle

Greatfish Isle should be over there. It used to be such a lovely island...

Despite its destruction, the island still holds two Pieces of Heart, and is one of the recurring destinations of the Ghost Ship. One of the Pieces of Heart can be found in a small indent by flying with the Deku Leaf directly northwest from the small spiral island chunk atop where the Korok rests. The other Heart Piece is given to Link from the Merchant in exchange of the Shop Guru Statue.

Beneath the waves is a fragment of the Triforce, available after finding and opening the Triforce Chart from the Islet of Steel (which is located one square south).
