Faux Hero is a character that appears in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes.
He is a red haired Human Boy (resembling Link from A Link to the Past) who believes himself to be the main protagonist of Tri Force Heroes and tries to join the mission to find The Lady and save Princess Styla from the Cursed Tights, but is rejected for not possessing the three traits of the Totem Hero mentioned in Hytopian legend and stands near the entrance of Hytopia Castle. He is angry when the newcomer Link is found to possesses all three traits of the hero and allowed to join as a member of the Totem Heroes hunting The Lady, believing that he is the clear protagonist of the story due to his possessing 15 Friendly Tokens. With every new friend Link plays with via Local Play or Download Play, Link can obtain one Friendly Token per friend from the Faux Hero by talking to him afterwards. Prior to the 2.0.0 update, the Faux Hero was the only source for Friendly Tokens which are needed to create the Tri Suit and Timeless Tunic.
