- "Oh... Welcome... This is the forgotten village... 30... No, more like 20... That's how many cats have made it back here to the village... So perhaps you could...you know...just...play with them?"
- — Cucco Leader
The Cucco Leader is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It is a Cucco found near the Howling Stone in the Hidden Village; as its title implies, it serves as the leader of the many cats living in the village. If Link speaks to the Cucco Leader while in wolf form, the Cucco Leader will initiate a mini-game, the objective of which is to find all of the 20 cats scattered throughout the village. If Link manages to accomplish this, he is rewarded with a Piece of Heart; however, leaving the Hidden Village will force the mini-game to restart, reverting the number of cats Link has found to zero.
