|First appearance||Skyward Sword (2011)|
Plats is first encountered in the Fire Sanctuary in an underground tunnel. Mistaking Link for a monster, he attempts to block off a path by closing a gate in order to hinder Link's progress. Link must catch him, at which point he realizes that Link is not his enemy. Plats then gives Link a Piece of Heart.
When Link returns to Eldin Volcano to learn Eldin's part of the "Song of the Hero", he is captured by Bokoblins and robbed of a majority of his equipment. Plats is able to recover Link's Mogma Mitts and returns them to him, allowing Link to tunnel his way out of confinement.
As many Mogmas seem to be named after minerals, it is possible that Plats' name is derived from platinum.
