Merchants can be found either in caves or underground. Their shops are located in 12 areas in the First Quest and in 15 areas in the Second Quest. The items they sell to Link and their prices vary from a merchant to another. There are four types of merchants: the ones who sell Magical Shields, Keys, and Blue Candles; Merchants who sell Magical Shields, Bombs and, Arrows; the ones who sell Magical Shields, Food, and Hearts; and only one Merchant in each quest who sells Keys, Food, and the Blue Ring.

- Depending on which defensive ring Link wears, the clothing of the Merchants changes to match the color of Link's Tunic.
- In the Merchant's cutscene in Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, a Bomb is marked with a price tag of 20.00, erroneously suggesting that cents are used as part of Gamelon's currency. The Bombs are actually priced at 20 Rubies for three.
