Vacant Houses are recurring locations in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Features and Overview

The Minish Cap

After completing the Fortress of Winds, Link can Fuse a red Kinstone Piece with Farore, one of the three Oracles at the Happy Hearth Inn, who is looking for a house to move into.[3] Afterwards, Gorman will be renting a home in Hyrule Town, at which point Link can talk to one of the three Oracles so that she may move in to the new house.[4] By speaking to the Oracle in the house, Link will be able to obtain one of the Charms.

To make the next house available, Link must then fuse a red Kinstone Piece with Bremor, the carpenter by the Post Office. Mutoh then becomes motivated to build a second house for Gorman.[5] Link can talk to one of the two remaining Oracles to obtain a second Charm once the house is completed.

A third house never becomes available for the remaining Oracle. Thus, its charm cannot be obtained. In the European version of the game, Gorman considers building a third house south of the Royal Hyrule Library,[6] but he never does. This comment was replaced in the American version, released two months later.[7]

A Link Between Worlds

The Vacant House is the Lorule counterpart to Link's House. A Bottle can be found inside it after using a Bomb on the back wall. A Weather Vane can be found outside. A Fissure can also be found on the front.

In Hero Mode, Ravio's Diary can be found inside, suggesting that the Vacant House belongs to him.
