The Man from the Curiosity Shop and The Man from the Trading Post. Are they one and the same or two guys who work next door to each other? Here we will weigh the evidence for and against both sides and let you the public vote to see which is more commonly believed. So let us begin.
Reasons why they are the same person
- The Man from the Trading Post stops working at nine, one hour before the curiosity shop opens (for a shop keeper to take a break from work is also uncommon in the series).
- Their Ocarina of Time counter part is the same person (it should be noted Malon’s Majora’s Mask counter part are two different people).
- On the third day when the Man from the Curiosity Shop is in the back area waiting to give you the Keaton Mask the Part Time Employer is working the trading post (it should be noted that he will not work these hours on any cycle regardless of how much of the Kafi side quest you have done, if you save the Bomb Woman from Sakon then you can enter the back room on the third day and Kafi will still be there instead of the Man from the Curiosity Shop).
Reasons why they are different people
- They have very different personalities and address Link differently
- They look different (it has been theorized that the he wears a wig when working the trading post and glasses when working the Curiosity Shop because the curiosity shop is an illegal business. However why he would wear a wig when working his day shop makes little sense).
- Speaking to the Man from the Trading Post does not add the Man from the Curiosity Shop to the bombers notebook.
- By doing the Kafi side quest you can observe the man from the curiosity shop inside the closed shop from six until ten o clock. The Man from the Trading Post works until nine meaning they are in the same place for three hours (it should be noted that he does not appear before six meaning it is not a designing error and he is not there all the time)
They are the same
They are different
I refuse to vote because the real reason wasn't available as an option. It's as simple as this; Nintendo reused the same model because they're lazy pieces of scum. Yep, that's what makes the best Zelda game in the world: laziness! --AuronKaizer! 23:31, March 8, 2010 (UTC)
