Zeffa is a character in The Minish Cap.[2]

Biography

Zeffa is a blue Bird that swoops down and warps Link to any one of the activated Wind Crests scattered across the overworld. Link can summon Zeffa by using the Ocarina of Wind, an item found in the Fortress of Winds. Once the Ocarina of Wind is obtained, Zeffa will transport Link about Hyrule regardless of how many Wind Crests he has uncovered.[3]

The use of Zeffa and the Ocarina of Wind greatly cuts walking time between the regions of Hyrule, similar to the use of the Flute which would also summon a bird to take Link to certain locations in A Link to the Past.

Trivia

Nomenclature

Zeffa may come from ゼッファー (Zeffā), a transliteration of the English word "Zephyr," meaning a gentle breeze or west wind.
