Guides are a recurring mechanic in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2][3][4] They are characters or objects that help Link at various points in his quest by providing either hints or outright advice. Guides typically communicate with Link via telepathy. They do not accompany Link, unlike partners.

The Gossip Stone is the most common Guide. Fortune tellers often serve as optional Guides that charge for their services.
