The Old Zora is a character in Oracle of Ages.[1] He is the final step in the trading sequence in order to get the Noble Sword. He lives in a cave near Coast of No Return in the past.[2] He mentions to Link that he misses the smell and sound of the sea, and that he used to be the best Zora musician back in his younger days.[3] Upon hearing this, Link gives him the Sea Ukulele, and in return the Old Zora thanks him with the Broken Sword.[4] After being told the sword is broken, the old Zora will hurriedly change the subject to how pleasant the Ukulele sounds.[5]

Trivia

  • The Old Zora mentions that he is capable of fixing anything, but whether he actually can do this is never confirmed.[6]
