Fi's Comment

A report, master.

Target lock: Nackle

His name is Nackle. He is a member of a highly civilized race of moles called the Mogma. All Mogmas have a deep and abiding love of treasure.

Nackle is a blue-haired Mogma. When Link enters Eldin Volcano, he can dig Nackle out of his burrow with the Digging Mitts, frightening the Mogma.[2] Nackle then dismisses Link, stating that it is impossible to stop digging when what could be found is unknown.[3] He tells Link about what he might find while digging with the Digging Mitts.[4] The Mogma encourages the hero to dig whenever there is an opportunity.[5] If Link speaks to Nackle again, he will warn Link about red, blobby things that will sometimes come from burrows.[6]


Nackle's name is derived from the metal nickel.

Nackle's and Tyto's names were interchanged in the North American, Latin American Spanish and French localizations. His Japanese name, チッタ (Chitta), is derived from チタン (chitan), Japanese for titanium. His name is also derived from titanium in the Canadian French and German versions.
