Strato is a character in The Minish Cap.[2]


Strato lives in a house with a yellow roof in Hyrule Town. Although he does not reveal it at first, it is discovered later on that he is a member of the Wind Tribe who recently moved to Hyrule Town.[3] When Link fuses Kinstones with him, a magic circle will appear in South Hyrule Field near Link's House, which allows the hero to teleport to the Cloud Tops.

Other Appearances

The Minish Cap (Himekawa)

Strato appears in the The Minish Cap manga by Akira Himekawa, where he encounters Link and requests to see his Map. He explains to Link that he's searching for Gustaf's tomb and requests that he visit Royal Valley in his place due to being unaccustomed to walking on the ground. He gives Link a Kinstone Bag in exchange for going and explains their purpose before disappearing into the wind.

Later, when Link is in the Royal Crypt, he is attacked by the spirit of Gustaf, who stops shortly after seeing a Kinstone fall out of Link's bag. Gustaf recognizes them as a sign from the Wind Tribe and directs Link to the Source of the Flow, leading to the Cloud Tops.
