Game(s)

Old Man Ho Ho is a man who can be found in many islands of the Great Sea in The Wind Waker.[2]

Biography

Old Man Ho Ho is usually seen staring through his Telescope looking at places of interest where treasure or special items can be found.[3] When spoken to, he also gives subtle hints to what or where the place is that he is staring at and what can be found there.[4][5] Sometimes he is even looking through a kaleidoscope.[6]

While he knows where to find many of the Great Sea's treasures, perhaps the most impressive is his apparent knowledge concerning the Triforce Chart in the Savage Labyrinth.[7]

Though he does not appear in Phantom Hourglass, members of the Ho Ho Tribe appear, hailing from the land of Wayaway.
