Link gains the ability to Call only one of the Animal Companions by obtaining either Ricky's Flute, Moosh's Flute, or Dimitri's Flute. Which Flute he receives is determined by whether and how he obtains the Strange Flute. In a Linked Game, Link partners with the same Animal Companion as before.

The terrain of the Nuun Highlands and the Natzu region vary to suit the chosen Animal Companion's abilities. Ricky can leap up cliffs and over holes, Moosh can fly, and Dimitri can swim against currents and up waterfalls.

In Oracle of Ages, Link mounts only one of the Animal Companions, to traverse Nuun Highlands. In Oracle of Seasons, he mounts all three. In addition to Natzu, Link needs the Animal Companions in Holodrum Plain (Ricky), Mt. Cucco (Moosh), Sunken City (Dimitri).
