The Thief Girl is a character in A Link Between Worlds.


The Thief Girl is first found imprisoned in the Thieves' Hideout.[1] She was imprisoned after discovering the location of the portrait of Osfala.[2] After Link rescues her from her prison, she takes him to the location of Osfala's portrait.[3] However, as they are trapped inside the hideout, Link must complete the dungeon with the Thief Girl's help.

After escaping the hideout, she leads Link to a house right of the Thieves' Hideout entrance where the portrait is hidden. She then leaves Thieves' Town to hide in a cave south of the Vacant House. Inside the cave, she wears a mask and gives Link Rupees as an additional reward for rescuing her.


  • When receiving Rupees from her, the Thief Girl says "How about we just keep this a secret to everybody, okay?." This is a reference to the iconic quote from The Legend of Zelda, "It's a secret to everybody."
  • The Thief Girl may be a reference to Ghanti from the A Link to the Past manga by Akira Himekawa, as they both have purple hair and are thieves. Also, after the Thieves' Hideout is completed, the Thief Girl is seen in a cave wearing a mask that looks like a fox. Ghanti transforms into a fox-like creature in the Dark World.
    • She is also similar to Kafei from Majora's Mask, as both have purple hair, travel with and assist Link in a thief's hideout, wear masks that resemble a fox, and use variations of the iconic quote, "It's a secret to everybody."
  • The Thief Girl's fox-like mask could be a reference to the fox-like Pikku enemies from A Link to the Past.
  • The Thief Girl's presence as a prisoner of the Thieves' Hideout is likely meant as a reference to Blind's strategy of disguising himself as a maiden in A Link to the Past.
