- "You got a Deluxe Picto Box! It has been imbued with a mystical light, so now it can take color pictographs!"
- — In-game description
After receiving the Picto Box, Lenzo, a pictographer on Windfall Island, requests that Link take a series of three pictographs of various people around town doing various actions. Once Link has completed these tasks, he can go to the Forest Haven and capture a Forest Firefly in a bottle. After Link takes this to Lenzo, his Picto Box will be upgraded to the Deluxe Picto Box. In the HD remake, Link does not need to get the Forest Firefly.
The Deluxe Picto Box is required for Link to be able to take pictures of people and make figurines sculpted after these pictographs in the Nintendo Gallery. During the game's Second Quest, Link will start with the Deluxe Picto Box in his inventory if he gets the Picto Box during the previous file, along with any pictures he had saved prior to beating the game.
