Mesa's work ethic is rather confusing and contradictory. He can be labeled as a slacker as well as a hard worker, as he prefers to do chores at his own pace, but he is constantly working. His field of vegetables are constantly infested with weeds, which he is often seen trying to clear out. He has an unusual sleeping schedule, in which he often sleeps during the day, and often stays awake at night.
During Link's quest, it is revealed that Mesa wishes to find a wife.
