Zuko is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[2] He is a member of Tetra's Pirate Crew.


One of the three "short" pirates in Tetra's crew, Zuko is in charge of keeping watch, and as such, he can always be seen carrying a Telescope and is usually atop the lookout platform of Tetra's Ship.

Zuko makes his final appearance in The Wind Waker during the game's ending sequence. After Link and Tetra resurface from the sunken Hyrule Castle, Zuko, along with the rest of the pirate crew and a few other characters, greet the pair aboard their pirate ship before setting sail from Outset Island in search of new lands.

Like the rest of the pirates, Zuko bears a striking resemble to a man portrayed in a wall painting hanging in the sunken Hyrule Castle, which heavily hints that the man could be Zuko's ancestor serving under the orders of a past Princess Zelda.

In Phantom Hourglass, Zuko appears again during both the introduction and the ending sequences of the game, and his role is once again very limited. He is last seen when Tetra and Link reunite with the rest of the pirate crew after waking up on top of Ghost Ship.

Zuko is in charge of keeping watch. His sharp eyes can read signs a mile off, but no one really understands what he says, so they rarely know what he's seen.

Phantom Hourglass Manga

Zuko is first seen in the Phantom Hourglass manga by Akira Himekawa when he announces that the ship will be entering "that" area soon,[3] the ocean where the Ghost Ship sails.[4] He is shown again when he says a ship approaching,[5] which turns out to be the Ghost Ship itself.[6]
