Guru-Guru is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[2]

Biography

Majora's Mask

Guru-Guru is the Gorman Troupe's musician in Majora's Mask.[3] Guru-Guru is seen at night in the Laundry Pool area of Clock Town playing his Phonograph since he has been kicked out of his room for practicing too loud.[4] He is usually a happy person, and long ago was a member of an animal troupe. However, he was jealous of the dog being the leader of the troupe, who could always get any animal to follow his command.[5][6] As such, Guru-Guru stole the dog's mask, called the Bremen Mask.[7] He gives Link the mask as a reward for listening to his story and to get rid of his guilt.[8][9]

He also appears during the day in the Stock Pot Inn in the room at the end of the hall.

Oracle of Seasons

Guru-Guru is located in the Eastern Suburbs in Oracle of Seasons. He can be found standing by his windmill playing his Phonograph, wanting to oil the windmill to make it go faster.[10] Link can give him the Engine Grease in exchange for his Phonograph.[11] This will make the windmill go faster.[12]

Nomenclature

His name is a Japanese onomatopoeia for "turning round and round, going around in circles," which also happens to be the Phonogram Man's favorite expression in Ocarina of Time.[13]
