The Trendy Game Shop Owner runs the Trendy Game in Mabe Village. For a fee of 10 Rupees, he will let Link play a single round where he may earn one of the shop's prizes. The Trendy Game Shop Owner will also give Link a short instruction on how to operate the Trendy Game's Crane.
If Link brings Marin to the Trendy Game, she will ask to play a round, which Link will pay for. However, she grabs the Trendy Game Shop Owner with the Crane instead. The Trendy Game Shop Owner compliments Marin on her expertise, but then angrily demands that she and Link leave.
