Mamamu Yan is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]


Ocarina of Time

Although un-named in Ocarina of Time, she is a woman in Hyrule Castle Town who has lost her dog, Richard.[2] If Link returns the correct dog (a white one from behind a stall), she will reward him with a Piece of Heart.[3] Arrogantly, she seems to think Richard is above all the other dogs in town.[4][5] Mamamu Yan is one of the survivors who flee to Kakariko Village after Castle Town was destroyed during Link's absence. She is housed by the same woman who lodges Talon when he is driven away from Lon Lon Ranch.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Mamamu Yan owns the Doggy Racetrack south of Romani Ranch, which is open from 6 AM to 8 PM.[6] Here, Link can place a bet on the winning dog in a race. If the dog he chooses places first, he will win triple his bet. If the dog places second, he will win double the bet. For third to fifth places, he will break even. Any place lower wins nothing, and Link loses the money he bet.[7] If Link wins over 150 Rupees at the racetrack, Mamamu Yan will also give him a Piece of Heart.[8]

Oracle of Ages

Mamamu Yan is part of the Oracle of Ages Trading Sequence, giving Link the Dumbbell in return for the Doggie Mask.[9]

In a Linked Game, Mamamu Yan's mother will appear in Spool Swamp in western Holodrum in Oracle of Seasons.[10] She will ask Link to tell a secret to her daughter in Labrynna.[11] After telling the secret password to Mamamu Yan, she will ask Link to help her find her lost dog.[12] After returning the dog, which can be found roaming Lynna City, Mamamu Yan will reward Link with a Magic Ring, which becomes the Snowshoe Ring once appraised by Vasu.[13]
