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 Hyrule. Link can summon Zeffa by using the Ocarina of Wind, an item found after defeating Mazaal in the Fortress of Winds. Once the Ocarina of Wind is obtained, Zeffa will transport Link around Hyrule regardless of how many Wind Crests he has uncovered.[3]

Trivia

  • Link can avoid being Warped by Zeffa if he moves out of the way of Zeffa's swoop after calling for it using the Ocarina of Wind.
  • Zeffa can be seen at the Picori Festival, perched atop the Wind Crest in Hyrule Town.

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.
