The Bug-Catching Kid and his Bug-Catching Net
|First appearance||A Link to the Past (1992)|
- "This is my bug-catching net. I'll use it when I'm better, but for now, I'll lend it to you."
- — Bug-Catching Kid
When Link enters the house of the Bug-Catching Kid, he finds the child in bed with a cold caused by "the evil air" emanating from Death Mountain, unable to go outside and catch bugs. He asks Link to return once he has an empty bottle. Link does so, and the child lends Link his Bug-Catching Net and instructs him in its fields of usage.
In the end credits, the Bug-Catching Kid's illness is gone, and he is shown happily catching bugs in the center square of Kakariko Village while other villagers look on. Due to the fact that the child is cured after the defeat of Ganon, it may be that the sickness was somehow induced by the evil deeds of Agahnim.
