Anche is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[2][3]


Breath of the Wild

Anche is a Gerudo Soldier who manages the Northern Icehouse.[4] She is often seen counting the Ice in the Icehouse, and she carries a Gerudo Shield and a Moonlight Scimitar on her person. If Link speaks to her, she explains that the Icehouse stores the Ice that is collected from the Gerudo Highlands.[5] Anche explains that the Ice is important for the Gerudo people.[4] If Link speaks to Anche while she is in Bed during the night, she tells him to come back tomorrow and that her work is done for the day.[6]

During "The Perfect Drink" Shrine Quest, Furosa will ask Link to talk to Anche about obtaining Ice for Pokki's drink.[1] She also mentions that Anche goes to bed early, so Link should speak to her while it is bright out.[7] When the situation is explained, Anche will allow Link to bring the Ice to Furosa.[8] She reminds him to move quickly due to the heat, since Furosa can not do anything with Water.[9] Anche will be disappointed if the Ice melts,[10] though she accepts Link's mistake and allows him to take another block.[11]

After completing the Shrine Quest, speaking to Anche will cause her to ask Link to once again deliver Ice to Furosa for her.[12] While she usually delivers the Ice herself,[13] she explains that the nearby monsters are preventing her from leaving the Icehouse.[14] Anche charges Link 50 Rupees for the Ice and explains that Furosa will reimburse him.[15] Once Link has paid the fee, the Carry the Ice! Mini-Game will begin. Link is timed while delivering the Ice and will be rewarded with extra Rupees if he delivers it quickly enough.[16] If Link accepts the task, Anche expresses joy and reiterates that Furosa will be waiting for him at the end of the North Gerudo Ruins nearby.[17][18]

If Link attempts to melt a formation of Ice inside the Northern Icehouse or if Anche detects any Fire inside the Northern Icehouse, Anche will scold him for damaging her supply before kicking him out.[19][20] If Anche detects Fire but cannot find the culprit (such as if Link sets the Fire while she is asleep and then leaves), she will angrily ask who is responsible for putting it there.[21] If Link is caught enough times, she will inform Link that she will not be held responsible for the punishment being brought to him and demands that he leave.[22]
