Anton is a recurring character in the The Legend of Zelda series.[2]


The Wind Waker

Anton is a man that can be found walking around Windfall Island in The Wind Waker. His second-favorite activity is walking as it keeps his legs in shape, while his number one hobby is actually kickboxing. Lately, he has had a crush on the young lady Linda and, if Link successfully introduces him to her, they fall in love and reward him with a Piece of Heart. Kamo becomes depressed of the fact Linda is dating someone else, which triggers a sidequest that gives Link a Treasure Chart.

The Minish Cap

Anton lives in Hyrule Town in The Minish Cap. He stands outside Borlov's Chest Mini-Game Shop, hoping that it will open soon so he can play and refusing to leave.[3][4]

After Link obtains the Ocarina of Wind from the Fortress of Winds, the Chest Mini-Game Shop will finally open, allowing Anton to start playing.[5] Despite his excitement, he will warn Link about gambling.[6] He remains in the Chest Mini-Game Shop through the end of the game, remarking that it is no time to play games after Link has obtained the Wind Element from the Palace of Winds.[7]

He is one of the potential characters to have a random Kinstone Fusion available.[8]


Anton is a shortened form of the name Antonius.[9]
