Game(s)

Kinstone Fusion is a mechanic in The Minish Cap.[1]

Overview

Kinstone Fusion is the act of matching two complementary Kinstone Pieces with another character or object, resulting in a completed gold, red, blue, or green medallion. Kinstone Pieces only match with a precise complementary match, despite their many variations and colors. A successful Fusion creates a form of "good luck" for Link, often rewarding him with items and new passageways.

After a successful Kinstone Fusion, the Map Screen will denote the general location and type of reward with various icons:

  • Doors and arrows signify newly accessible areas.
  • People signify a character having something new.
  • Scrolls signify newly appeared Treasure Chests.
  • Eggs signify newly appeared creatures, such as Golden Monsters or Joy Butterflies.
  • Sprouts signify a Bean that has grown and can now be climbed to reach a secret area.

There is also a unique icon that appears on the map of South Hyrule Field representing the Portal to the Home of the Wind Tribe; it appears after Link has Fused Kinstone Pieces with Strato.

Fusers

There are many different characters and objects that can perform Kinstone Fusions in The Minish Cap. While many characters will always possess a Kinstone Piece to Fuse, there are a number of Fusions that are not tied to any particular individual. Instead, these Fusions can be triggered with almost any character in the game, even if they already have an established Fusion. Some characters can Fuse Kinstone Pieces multiple times, as well, and some Fusions may not be triggered the first time a character is encountered. Some characters have a random chance of their Fusion becoming available, and Link may need to leave and re-enter the particular area a number of times before the Fusion becomes available.

Random Fusers

The 18 random Fusions can be performed with any of the following characters, and some may also trigger multiple random Fusions. Some characters, such as King Daltus, become unavailable after certain points in the story are reached, while others, such as Sturgeon, do not become available until after certain points in the story are reached. If one of the following characters has an available Fusion and becomes inaccessible during the story, that Fusion will simply transfer to another available character from the list at random.

In addition, random Fusions may be performed with any of the Minish found throughout Hyrule; Forest Picori, Library Minish, Mountain Minish, and Town Minish may all have Fusions available.

List of Fusions

A total of 100 Kinstone Fusions can be performed throughout the game; 18 of them are random Fusions not tied to a particular character, and 9 of them are necessary to advance the story (these required Fusions are performed with gold Kinstone Pieces).

In addition, many Fusions do not become available until certain events have transpired; there are seven "stages" of the game that transition into one another as Link continues on his journey.

The Tingle Siblings? keep track of successful Kinstone Fusions, including Gold ones. After all 100 are Fused, Tingle will replace the Kinstone Bag with the Tingle Trophy.
