Animal Village is a location in Link's Awakening.[1][2] It is a small village of Animals.

Features and Overview

The Animal Village is the home of many Animals that live together peacefully. It is located in the southeastern corner of Koholint Island.

The inhabitants consist of Rabbits, Christine, Chef Bear, Schule Donavitch, the Hippo Model, and a Zora. All the Animals seem to be enamored with the singing voice of Marin, who goes with Link to sing the Ballad of the Wind Fish to the inhabitants. When Marin is not there, the Animals constantly remind Link that Marin must come back someday to sing them another Song.

One of the Rabbit mentions that the Animal Village is a sister city to Mabe Village.[3] Its inhabitants are unable to go visit Mabe Village because of the uprising in monster sightings and attacks that spanned the area connecting the two [[Village#Link's Awakening|]] together.[4]

A Piece of Heart can be found in a cave between the Village and Yarna Desert. A Warp Hole can be found in the small pond south of the Village.

  3. "Hey! Did ya know Animal Village and Mabe Village are sister cities? Yes, even though they aren't large enough to be called cities... Anyway, I heard from a very good source that they have a Dream Shrine in Mabe, and that it has something good inside... Is that true?" — Rabbit (Link's Awakening DX)
  4. "Lately there have been a lot of monsters in the area, so we can't go to Mabe Village... I wonder how Marin is doing?" — Rabbit (Link's Awakening)
