— Ankle

Ankle is a recurring character in the Legend of Zelda series. Ankle is the brother of Tingle and Knuckle. He wears a pink suit identical to Tingle's except for the color. Also, the rosy patches on his cheeks are filled in and the mole is above his mouth, rather than below it. Ankle and his siblings can ordinarily be found around Tingle. Ankle is more of a neutral character, contrasting him from his other relatives.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Ankle and David Jr. constantly work hard to perpetuate the spinning of Tingle Tower, Tingle's lookout tower on Tingle Island. When you first meet him, he mistakes you for being Tingle due to the similar clothing. His favorite proverb is "One may as well hang for a stolen sheep as for a stolen lamb." When Link speaks to him, he begs Link to visit as often as possible, because while Tingle normally mistreats Ankle and David Jr. quite badly, on days when Link visits his mood improves significantly, and he is much more pleasant to Ankle and the others. Despite this, Tingle was the one who taught him how to decipher maps but he thinks that his triplet Knuckle is lazy and good-for-nothing. He's only really happy when he is tending the flower garden on Tingle Island

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Ankle (The Minish Cap)

Ankle can be found sitting on a stump in the Lon Lon Ranch area. When spoken to, he tells Link he's worried about his brother; Knuckle. Like his brothers and David Jr., he can fuse Kinstones with Link to open a doorway in one of the trees in North Hyrule Field. This leads to a room with a switch connected to a torch and a chest containing a Kinstone Piece. He, along with the other Tingle Brothers, believe that fusing kinstones will help them meet fairies, thus they record kinstone data on their maps.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

Ankle, as well as the other Tingle brothers, play a small role in The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures transporting the Links between minigames in Tingle Tower.
