Biography

Mayor Hagen is the presiding mayor of Hyrule Town, and lives in his House near Funday School.[3] He claims not to have done anything as mayor, yet the town runs smoothly.[4] When Link first encounters Mayor Hagen, Hagen brags to Link about owning a Lakeside Cabin at Lake Hylia. He tells Link that he goes there to practice his hobby of Mask making.[5] Behind one of the Masks in his house live two Town Minish. Running into the wall with the Pegasus Boots will cause the Masks to fall off, revealing the small hole where the Minish live. When broken, the Masks will sometimes yield Rupees. The Minish in his office will give insight into living in his home.[6][7]

Mayor Hagen has constructed a shelter in his garden leading beneath Hyrule Town in preparation for the event that monsters should suddenly attack the Town.[8] The shelter itself contains puzzles that require the use of the White Sword or Four Sword in order to fully navigate it. Immediately beside the ladder leading down into the shelter is a Treasure Chest that contains a Kinstone Piece.

Mayor Hagen is one of the many people with whom Link can Fuse Kinstones.[9] When Link successfully Fuses Kinstones with him,[10] a puddle in Lon Lon Ranch dries up to reveal a staircase. The stairs lead down into a cave housing a Treasure Chest that contains a Big Wallet, which increases Link's Rupee capacity.

Trivia

  • If Link shoots an Arrow at Mayor Hagen, it will stick into him instead of passing through him. He is the only character in The Minish Cap to whom this will happen, and he will not respond to it in any way.
  • Ezlo has a natural distrust for Mayor Hagen, and believes that his office is hiding a secret.[11]
