Tingle (チンクル, Chinkuru) made his first appearance in Majora's Mask. He wears green tights accented with red, and appears in various The Legend of Zelda games to help out - usually in bizarre ways. He is a talented map maker. His catchphrase is the supposedly magical words Kooloo-Limpah. In Majora's Mask he states that he invented these words himself, and asks Link not to steal them. His appearance is based on Koji Kondo, Nintendo's lead composer.Tingle's debut portrayed him as the eccentric, estranged son of the Southern Swamp Pictograph contest Operator - obsessed with his dream of becoming a fairy. Suspended by a balloon in the air, he uses his vantage point to plot maps of Termina, which Link is able to purchase.
