Papahl on Tal Tal Heights

Papahl is the father of the Quadruplets. When Link visits his home in Mabe Village and gives the Yoshi Doll to Papahl's newborn, Papahl tells Link that he will be lost up in the mountains later on.[2] When Link does happen to come across Papahl in the Tal Tal Heights, he tells Link that he is famished and cannot move unless he is given something to eat.[3] Link can give him the Pineapple received from Chef Bear.[4] As thanks, Papahl gives him a Hibiscus that he picked on the mountain.[5]
