Erla is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. He is the most careless Kikwi living in Faron Woods. Link must track down Erla before Bucha gives him the Slingshot. Later, after having learned Faron's part of the "Song of the Hero" Link can attempt to seek out Erla again. If the camouflaged Erla is found, he will present Link with a rare Goddess Plume; this process can be repeated indefinitely. When he presents Link with a Goddess Plume, he will reference the famous dialogue of the Secret Moblin from The Legend of Zelda. Unlike most of the other Kikwi he is not easily spooked and does not cower when Link approaches or when Fi suddenly appears as the other Kikwi do. According to Fi's analysis of Erla, she will refer to him as the most careless of the herbivorous Kikwi race.
As many Kikwis seem to be named after varieties of teas, it is possible that Erla is named after Earl Grey tea.
