The Twin Jugglers, known as the Gossiping Man and Laughing Man in Ocarina of Time,[citation needed] are a pair of recurring characters.


Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, the Gossiping Man tells the Laughing Man in Red in the Market various things, only to be mocked by his twin.[1] The man dressed in blue claims that he attempted to have met Princess Zelda by sneaking into Hyrule Castle.[2] After avoiding the guards, he tried to access the castle's courtyards by crawling through the secret passageway; however, the twin became stuck within the passageway and eventually got caught by the castle's guards.[3] As a result, the guards increased their security, not allowing anyone into the castle.[4]

They flee to Kakariko Village when Link is an adult. The Gossping Man insists that he saw the ghost of Dampé descending into his grave, carrying a piece of treasure.[5] The Gossiping Man also laments that no one has believed him for the last seven years.[6]

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the Twin Jugglers spend their time practicing their juggling skills outside at East Clock Town. They are always laughing and generally having a good time.[7] They like to make fun of each other, with both laughing at their jokes.[8] Both of them are members of the Gorman Troupe.[9] They are the only ones of the troupe that do not have their own Bombers' Notebook entry. At night, they can be found inside the room that the Gorman Troupe rented in the Stock Pot Inn playing a game of cards.
