The Milk Bar Owner is the name of two characters in A Link Between Worlds. They run the Milk Bars in their respective worlds of Hyrule and Lorule.

Biography

Hyrule

The Hyrulean Milk Bar Owner is the proprietor of the Milk Bar in Kakariko Village. When Link first speaks to the Milk Bar Owner, he provides the young hero with gossip about the town.[1] He then offers to sell Link some fresh, chilled Milk.[2]

After Link obtains the Letter in a Bottle in Lake Hylia, the Milk Bar Owner will be surprised that he knows about Premium Milk. Once Link explains that the letter is from a man on Death Mountain, he will give the young hero a glass of it in exchange for the letter and ask that he give it to the Bouldering Guy up on Death Mountain,[3] who is a regular customer.[4] When Link returns to the Milk Bar after delivering the Premium Milk, he thanks the young hero and offers him a half-price discount on all Milk purchases.[5][6]

Lorule

The Lorulean Milk Bar Owner runs the Milk Bar in Thieves' Town. Unlike his Hyrulean counterpart, he is extremely unfriendly, telling any potential patrons to leave. He reveals to Link that he has grown more inhospitable due to the influx of customers in his bar, seeking refuge from the monsters that plague Lorule.[7] The Milk Bar Owner simply desires to be left alone to drink Milk in peace.[8]

Trivia

  • The Hyrulean Milk Bar Owner significantly resembles Talon, as well as Mr. Barten, whom he may be based on. Furthermore, the Milk he sells is said to come from Lon Lon Ranch.[9] The Lorulean Milk Bar Owner on the other hand greatly resembles Ingo.
