Manbo is an Ocean Sunfish who appears in Link's Awakening. He is the child of an apparently well-known Sun Fish[1] and resides in a cave to the west of Angler's Tunnel, along with two smaller fish.

If Link has an Ocarina when he talks to Manbo, Manbo offers to perform the song known as "Manbo's Mambo".[1][2][3] After the performance is over, Link learns the song "Manbo's Mambo" on his Ocarina. If Link is outside of a dungeon, this song will warp Link to Manbo's "personal resort," Manbo's Pond, next to Crazy Tracy's Shop, but if he is in a dungeon, it will warp him to the entrance.[4]
