- "Hah... Only the darkness can ease my heart. I guess laughing my troubles away is just a dream deferred..."
- — Dekadin
Dekadin is often very depressed and prefers living in an unlit room. As a part of the quest for the Noble Sword, Link tells Dekadin the Funny Joke. Dekadin does not find the humor in the joke, but he is touched that someone would care enough to spend time with him. Dekadin then gives Link one of his Touching Books.
