Madame Fanadi is a character in Twilight Princess.[1]


Madame Fanadi is a Fortune Teller who lives in Castle Town. In her fortune-telling palace, she tells Link his fortune on either "Career" or "Love" for 10 Rupees.[3][4] Choosing "Career" makes Fanadi reveal how to advance in the game, while selecting "Love" leads the fortune-teller to show Link the location of a Piece of Heart.


  • Whenever Madame Fanadi tells Link his fortune, she chants some magical words, which are English sentences written backwards. These are "elihwa sekat gnidaol tiaw" ("wait loading takes awhile") and "tuoba gniklat I ma tahw" ("what am I talking about").
  • The eye symbol on Madame Fanadi's forehead closely resembles the Eye Symbol of the Sheikah.


Madame Fanadi's name consists of the first two letters of the names of the three Golden Goddesses: Farore, Nayru, and Din. Her Japanese name combines "Impa" with "palace."
