Race Goron
Gender Male[1]

Lyndae is a character in Breath of the Wild.[2]


Lyndae is a Goron who can be found in Gerudo Town. Lyndae is allowed into Gerudo Town despite being a man.[1] If Link speaks to Lyndae during the day, he incorrectly pronounces "Sav'otta" as "Sabotta," which is a Gerudo greeting meaning "good morning."[3] Lyndae explains that one must really bite their lip to get the "V" sound out clearly and is ashamed that a little kid made fun of him for his pronunciation yesterday.[4][5] He feels that it sounds the same no matter what he does.[6] If Link speaks to Lyndae at night, he struggles to say "sav'saaba," which is the Gerudo word for "good evening."[7] Lyndae feels that Gerudo words are hard to remember.[8] He also comments that Gerudo Town truly is full of women and that it smells nice there.[9][10] Lyndae wonders why he was allowed into the Town when men are not allowed inside.[1]

After Link calms the Divine Beast Vah Naboris, Lyndae can be found sitting with the Goron Strade. When Link speaks to him here, Lyndae finally pronounces "sav'otta" correctly.[11] However, he still struggles with pronouncing "sav'saaba," instead saying "sav'saava" and "sab'saava."[12] Lyndae also expresses how shy he felt being surrounded by girls before Strade came to Gerudo Town.[13] However, Lyndae admits that he still feels shy around Strade.[14]
