- "Koboli is the third generation in a family of postmen, but rumor has it that an ancestor of his in an age gone by was also a postman..."
- — Figurine
Koboli is a character from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. He is a Rito born on Windfall Island. When Link meets him, he works as a mail sorter at the Mail Center on Dragon Roost Island. He is the third generation in a family of postmen. It is said that an ancestor of his in an age gone by was also a postman. This is thought to be a reference to the Postman from various games in the Legend of Zelda series.
When Link first meets Koboli, he is looking for an intern to help him with mail sorting, and offers Link one Rupee for each letter that he sorts. When Link sorts 25 letters within the 30-second time limit, Koboli gives him Link two Rupees for each letter he sorts. About a day later, a man named Baito is hired by Koboli to help him sort mail.
Theory warning: This section contains theoretical information based on the research of one or several other users. It has not been officially verified by Nintendo and its factual accuracy is disputed.
It is heavily implied that a member of the Rito tribe in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Koboli, is a descendant of either the Running Man of Ocarina of Time or the Postman of Majora's Mask. This is due to the obvious similarities in facial appearance. Koboli's occupation also suggests that he is a descendent of the Postman; the text from the Nintendo Gallery explicitly states that he belongs to a family that has been of the mailing profession for generations.
Theory warning: Theories end here.
