Ingo is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.


Ocarina of Time


In Ocarina of Time, Ingo appears as Talon's employee at Lon Lon Ranch.[1] During Link's childhood, Ingo is found working hard at the ranch, though grumbles and moans about the laziness of his superior, Talon.[2] Conversely, Ingo appeals to Ganondorf and is granted ownership to the ranch during Link's adult era. He kicks Talon out of the ranch and orders Malon to do the hard work while he charges Rupees in exchange for short horse rides. Ingo will also challenge Link to a horse race, but his greedy and vain personality is further revealed upon losing.[3] After winning Epona and leaving the ranch, Ingo's personality seems to have changed, being grateful for the opportunity to work under Talon.

Oracle of Seasons

OOS Ingo.png

In Oracle of Seasons, Ingo appears an easily agitated man who lives in Sunken City and collects vases. To complete his vase collection, Ingo wants a Goron Vase,[4] an object which was always refused to him by Biggoron. Link is required to get the vase from Biggoron and trade it for Ingo's dinner to continue the Trading Sequence.[5] Unlike in Ocarina of Time, he does not seem to have any relationship with Malon and Talon.

A Link Between Worlds

In A Link Between Worlds, Ingo appears as the Milk Bar Owner in Lorule, and his counterpart in Hyrule shares the same name.
