The Tantari Desert is a place in The Adventure of Link.


The desert is a small, sandy plain north of North Castle, known for its single, isolated cave. The Tantari Desert is plot-significant; hidden within its depths is a Trophy stolen from a woman in the Town of Ruto. After defeating the very Goriya that stole the trophy,[1] Link returns the trophy to the woman, and in return he receives the Jump spell from her uncle in her house.[2]


Tan in Japanese means "smooth", "flat", "quiet", and "pale",[3] whereas Tari is the name of an Ijaw tribe in west Africa.[4]
