Characters in Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon
From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
This is a list of the characters from Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon, the non-canon game from the CD-i. Link, Princess Zelda, and other characters that are part of canon are listed only with the information relevant to their place in the game.
- Main article: Princess Zelda
Zelda is now the playable character, and retains her personality from Faces of Evil. However, due to her larger role, she is much more heroic and seems to actually care for Link, at least partially. She and Impa go to Gamelon after King Harkinian and Link disappear after they depart for Gamelon to aid Duke Onkled against Ganon. She defeats Ganon's minions, learns of Duke Onkled's betrayal, and eventually defeats Ganon, rescuing her father. Link was then apparently imprisoned in a mirror that belonged to Lady Alma, which Zelda smashed, freeing him.
- Main article: Link
Link also retains his childish personality from Faces of Evil, but has a much smaller role. He is ordered to go to Gamelon if King Harkinian does not return, and does so, but is apparently imprisoned by Ganon. While in Gamelon, he gave his canteen to Lady Alma for a kiss. It is unknown whether this canteen is the same one he obtained in Faces of Evil or if it is another canteen he may have already had but didn't have the time to bring to Koridai. This canteen was later given to Zelda.
- Main article: King Harkinian
Much like Link and Zelda, he is the same as he was in Faces of Evil. This time, he goes to Gamelon to help Duke Onkled (revealed to be his cousin from the instruction manual), who is under attack by Ganon, and orders that if he doesn't return a month, Link should be sent to help. He is later rescued from Duke Onkled (who betrays him) and Ganon, and then condemns Onkled to "scrub all the floors in Hyrule". Zelda, Link, and others then have a feast to celebrate his return.
- Main article: Ganon
Similar in appearance and personality to his incarnation in Faces of Evil, Ganon has this time conquered Gamelon, and also blackmails Duke Onkled to betray his cousin, King Harkinian, with threats of destroying Gamelon. He also sends Gibdo, Omfak, Hectan, and other various monsters to defeat anyone who stands in his way. When Zelda confronts him, he blows her away with magic after she exposes him to light. Zelda uses the Wand of Gamelon to mystically summon chains to bind him, and he is inexplicably trapped in what appears to be the Book of Koridai, claiming that "you haven't seen the last of (him)."
- Main article: Duke Onkled
King Harkinian's cousin and the ruler of Gamelon, Duke Onkled ultimately ends up betraying the King. Ganon blackmails him with threats of destroying Gamelon, and then he is forced to imprison people in Domodai Palace. When Zelda attacks the palace and frees Fari, they then force him to reveal the location and entrance to Ganon's lair in Reesong Palace. After the defeat of Ganon, he is given to the King by Fari, and begs for mercy. He is then sentenced to "Scrub all the floors in Hyrule (then (we) can talk about mercy)".
- Main article: Impa
Taking the role of Zelda's nurse like in the canon games, Impa first uses the Triforce of Wisdom to ascertain that the King will safely return from Gamelon. When Link and the King go, but do not return, she goes with Zelda to Gamelon. She then essentially fills the role of Gwonam, providing advice, using the Triforce of Wisdom. It should be noted that this game is Impa's first actual in-game appearance in the series, as in the first two "real" Zelda games, she only appeared in the enclosed instruction book.
He is the retainer of the King. However, Ganon and Hectan place him in chains, and he is Kept in a prison chamber in Domodai Palace, which is personally guarded by Hectan himself. He later reveals to Zelda that Duke Onkled betrayed the King after she rescues him, and once they confront him and make him reveal the entrance to Reesong Palace, takes Onkled prisoner before he can get away. At the end of the game, he turns Onkled over to the king ("Here's the traitor, your majesty!")
He is referred to by Ganon as the runt. As he was unnamed, he is referred to by fans as Fari.
A woman encountered in Shutoy Lake Tower during Zelda's quest. She is captured by Wizzrobe, but saved by Zelda. She reveals that Link gave her his canteen in exchange for a kiss. Zelda smashes her mirror at the end, which apparently had Link trapped inside, possibly due to earlier machinations done by Wizzrobe, Ganon or even Lady Alma herself (It is never explained why or how Link was in the mirror). Link was freed when the mirror was destroyed.
A mummy based on the canonical enemy of Gibdo, he terrorizes the town of Sakado by commanding the monsters in that area, and has his base of operations set up in the abandoned church. Zelda encountered him and defeated him by using a shroud given to her by the Knitting Woman, which apparently could "scare the wraps (off of him)".
A wolf-headed creature who apparently was "guarding the shrine" according to Impa. He could shoot lasers out of its eyes, and his head would turn into a lion that could spit fire, and also a giant pair of lips. He claims that "Whatever (he) sees, (he) will devour", as demonstrated while killing and eating a bird. When Zelda destroyed him, he crumbled into a flock of crows, ravens, and blackbirds. He is this game's equivalent of Lupay from "Faces of Evil". He also bears some similarities to Glutko from the same game, mainly that both have the gluttonous habit of eating anything they see and both guard the shrine of the island containing the only weapon capable of defeating Ganon.
A blue-clothed and haired old wizard who served Ganon. He put the Spaniard in chains and took him to Domodai Palace. Zelda found that one sword slash was sufficient to destroy him, and he dissolved into a pool of blue liquid and a beating Heart Container, while saying "YOU KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLED ME!". Zelda, showing absolutely no remorse whatsoever for murdering him, simply replies, "Good!" and smiles.
A bald man with a powdered wig who seems to be the mayor of Sakado, Kravindish is captured by Onkled's minions and trapped in Tykogi Tower. Zelda then frees him, and he gives her a magic lantern. During the cutscene in which he is introduced by Impa, he says "This is illegal, you know", which has become one of the more popular memes in Youtube Poop.
A man trapped in Tykogi Tower. In the cutscene in which he is introduced by Impa, he is shown to be pulled off the screen, presumably being grabbed by an enemy to be taken to Tykogi Tower, while exclaiming, "My cakes will burn!'. When Zelda visits his shop after rescuing him, he supplies her with free cakes, which distract attacking Arpagos when used as items, out of gratitude. He is nicknamed "George" by fans.
A middle-aged woman living in Aru Ainu who isn't afraid of monsters, and claims "they know better than bothering (her)." She gives Zelda the shroud that can kill Gibdo.
A girl who complains that "those darned Moblins have eaten everything", and that she would give anything for an Arpagos Egg. When she is given the egg, she rewards Zelda with a flute.
A woman who is seen gathering water near the Gohma Pit, she rewards Zelda for jumping it with some water. She then tells Zelda that there is a fisherman trapped in the skull of a fish skeleton.
A strange, greenish man with an odd voice and wild white hair, Zelda saves him by blowing away the rock over the eye socket of the fish skull he was trapped in. He then vows to never go fishing again, and leaves, telling Zelda that she will see him in Sakado. She does, and he has gotten a job as a blacksmith. He then fixes a Firestone to her sword so it can shoot fire.
General Store Owner
He is Wand of Gamelon's counterpart to Faces of Evil's Morshu. He is unnamed within the game or manual, but in the manual his store is known as the General Store. He appears to be quite sinister and greedy, but his true intentions are unknown.
He is known by fans as Ushrom, I. Fleecem, or "the crazy shopkeeper".
Fairy Dust Lady
A woman who offers to make Zelda a magic cloak once she gives her some fairy dust. It allows her to "give the monsters a good shot before they see (her)." She makes strange noises when she moves similar to sound effects on early Atari systems, and her eyes change color frequently.
Based on the Iron Knuckles of the second canonical game, he guards Mayor Kravindish's prison chamber. He shouts that since Zelda walked past him, therefore "defying (him) she must die. It has been noted his voice and appearance are uncannily similar to Militron of Faces of Evil. He is struck down using the Power Glove, breaking apart to reveal a Heart Container. Two Armos arrive and quickly decide to leave before Zelda kills them, too.
A greenish wizard monster in a purple robe, Wizzrobe is based on the Wizzrobes of the canonical games. He captures Lady Alma, who claims she isn't afraid of him, but he then buries her underneath a pile of stones. He is later defeated by Zelda when she deflects his "Disintegration spell" using her mirror shield. He bears some resemblance to Goronu from "Faces of Evil".
A man who lives in the swamps of Gamelon. He fills the role of the witch from Faces of Evil by giving Zelda the Glove of Power.
A woman who lives in the forest and offers Zelda an item in exchange for Arpagos Feathers. The item is revealed to be a cape made from the feathers and the shroud used to kill Gibdo. It has properties similar to Roc's Cape. Later on, she gives Zelda the lantern that Ganon is afraid of, and tells her that only the Wand of Gamelon can defeat him.
Three Witches who are obsessed with spreading "lovul-e evil". They "bring the darkness down", covering all the rooms of the forest in blackness. Zelda later defeats them, and they are blown away by a powerful gust of wind. The defeat of them frees the fairies.
Fairies almost exactly the same as the ones in Faces of Evil, they give Zelda a Life Heart, Fairy Dust, and a bottle of Water of Life, as well as cheering her on after she saves them from the witches.
There are two Armos that are momentarily characterized. After the Iron Knuckle is killed, they say that they should get out of there, possibly because they were being enslaved by the Knuckle, or because they don't want to be destroyed by Zelda. Considering that Militron in Faces of Evil had the ability to turn innocent Koridians into Armos, it is possible that these Armos are Gamelonians similarly transformed by Iron Knuckle.
