Chudley from Twilight Princess

Chudley is a character in Twilight Princess.[2][note 1]


Chudley is a man who runs Chudley's Fine Goods and Fancy Trinkets Emporium, an extravagant shop in Castle Town which charges a large amounts of Rupees for common items. He is very snobbish and will not let anyone into his store unless they shine their shoes.[4]

If enough Rupees are donated at Malo Mart in Kakariko Village, Malo will buy the store and convert it into the Malo Mart Castle Branch, drastically reducing the prices of his wares.[5] Chudley remains in charge of the shop after this, but he drastically changes his demeanor. He now wears extravagant colorful clothing, constantly dances, acts cheerful, and is completely devoted to satisfying his customers.


  • Chudley is one of the few characters in the series who ever speaks in actual words. After buying the Magic Armor, he says "Thank you."
  • According to the Prima Games guide, Chudley is about 30 years old.[6]

  1. 1.0 1.1 "Shopkeeper
    Working in a fashionable general store in Castle Town, he sells his goods to the local rich and famous. He tends to be unfairly biased towards those who have money in their pockets."

  3. "Things change quite drastically at the Chudley's Emporium after Malo takes ownership and opens his Malo Mart Castle Branch. Prices plummet, folks are more cheery, and the formerly-pretentious shopkeep, Chudley, changes his entire image; he even changes his name! Now going by the handle of Malver, Malo Mart Castle Branch's #1 salesperson just lives to see his customers smile." (Twilight Princess Prima Official Game Guide (Prima Games) pg. 15)
  4. "Well, having a customer in the store with shoes as filthy as yours can make our other clients uncomfortable. We hope that you will come back once you have found some more-polished footwear." — Chudley (Twilight Princess)
  5. "The hero of discounts, Malo Mart, will be a legend in Castle Town!" — Malver (Twilight Princess)
  6. "About 30 years old, Chudley runs a very swanky store in Castle Town." (Twilight Princess Player's Guide (Prima Games) pg. 13)
