Sakon,(MM)[1] also known as the Man Carrying Sack,(OoT)[2] is a character in The Legend of Zelda series.


Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, the Man Carrying Sack can be seen running around the Market. If Link talks to him, he will say a reference to the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.[3] In the ending credits, he can be seen dancing around, joining in with the party.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Sakon is a thief who has a Hideout situated in Ikana Canyon.[4] His hideout is protected by a huge Boulder which can only by opened by Sakon himself.[5]

He can be seen in North Clock Town in the first night trying to steal a Bomb Bag from the old lady of the Bomb Shop.[6] Link can retrieve the bag by striking Sakon with his Sword, which will guarantee the Blast Mask for Link from the old lady. If Link instead attacks him with an Arrow, the Hookshot, or another Bomb, the bag will explode, making Sakon disappear. If Link allows him to steal the bag, the Big Bomb Bag will be sold at the Curiosity Shop the next night.[7] Sakon also steals the Sun Mask from Kafei.[8] Link can help Kafei recover his mask during the Final Day by infiltrating Sakon's Hideout.

He can also be seen in the lower valley of the Ikana Canyon running in circles. There, he will try to steal Link's Sword,[9] but will be stopped by Tatl.[10] Sakon can sometimes be seen outside the Curiosity Shop at night, where he talks about how the Man from Curiosity Shop is unfair, and that he just wants his fair share.[11]
