The Angular Isles are islands in The Wind Waker.
Features and Overview
The Angular Isles are two islands created out of blocks. Link can ascend the larger island by moving blocks and climbing on them. At the top is a chest containing a Piece of Heart. To reach the second island, Link can either latch onto its tree with the Hookshot or glide there with the Deku Leaf. This island has a Secret Cave with a block puzzle that can only be completed with the Mirror Shield. The prize for completing the puzzle is a chest containing 200 Rupees.
Although the isles are uninhabited at the time of The Wind Waker, they are the birthplace of the Great Fairies and Salvage Corp. It is also home to many Gyorgs, meaning that travel through the waters surrounding the island can be difficult for the unprepared traveler. Lastly, a Piece of Heart can be unveiled from the sea after finding and opening a Treasure Chart found in Forbidden Woods.
- The Angular Isles have the smallest total area of any island in the Great Sea, excluding the three archipelagos (Five-Star Isles, Seven-Star Isles and Star Belt Archipelago).
While the Japanese name for the island uses カク (kaku), which means "angle" or "square", a fitting description of its blocky appearance, the word カクカク (赫赫, 赫々) (kakukaku) means "brilliant", "bright", or "glorious". This place, being the birthplace of the Great Fairies, makes this secondary meaning have notable significance.
