From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Gor Amoto is a character in Twilight Princess.
Gor Amoto is the first Goron elder found in the Goron Mines. He is physically very small and feeble-looking and uses a cane. He has vents on his back and head which can be seen to release smoke and gases. He can be found on the west side of the first level of the mines, and gives Link the first piece of the Big Key.
- His name is likely a parody of the creator of Zelda, Shigeru Miyamoto. This is more likely considering his Japanese name, Don Shīgeru.
- The algae growing on Gor Amoto's back spouts may be a reference to the theory of Abiogenesis, in which life is thought to have originally been sustained on Earth. This could be an allusion to Miyamoto's influence in the conception of several Nintendo series and titles.
