Minenco is a character who appears in The Wind Waker.[2]


Minenco is an elderly woman living on Windfall Island, and has a keen interest in Pictography. She can be often found discussing the topic with Lenzo. According to her, she started to look for true beauty in pictographs ten years ago, and was named Miss Windfall Island in her youth. If Link shows Pompie and Vera a pictograph of her and Lenzo together, they will discard their thoughts of the two of them possibly being lovers and reward him with a Treasure Chart.

She will realize how beautiful she looks once Link takes a colored pictograph of her and shows it to the former Miss Windfall Island, and in return, Minenco will in return give him a Treasure Chart.

This former beauty became famous after being dubbed Miss Windfall Island...about forty years ago. There isn't a younger woman who could take that title away.
