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


Breath of the Wild

Ashe is an old man who works at the Woodland Stable. During the day, he watches over the Stable's White Goats in their pen. At night, he can be found looking over his grandchild Shamae as she sleeps.[1] When Link speaks to him, he'll identify he's not from the area due to the look on his face.[4] He assists new travelers by telling them about the surrounding areas and giving directions to them, including the Eldin Region, Hyrule Field and the Great Hyrule Forest.[5]

If Link asks, Ashe will tell him about Eldin, describing Death Mountain at its center.[6] He tells Link that one can see the back of Death Mountain from the stable.[7] Though he doesn't know why anyone would do so, he recommends climbing to the Maw of Death Mountain from Foothill Stable in Akkala.[8] He also recommends Link figures out how to deal with the Scorching Climate before he heads up.[9]

Ashe also talks about Hyrule Field, saying it's just south of the stable past Crenel Hills.[10] He describes it as a beautiful place to live with no shortage of nature.[11] He mentions Hyrule Castle Town and Hyrule Castle are both north of the field, and they used to be the center of culture or commerce in Hyrule Kingdom[12] However, he warns Link to stay away from both the castle and the field, as he considers both to be dangerous.[13] Ashe says he's sure Link has a family who cares about him, and he's seen too many people head into Hyrule Field and never come back.[14]

When asked about the Great Hyrule Forest, Ashe will indicate that it's north of the stable, and it's the largest forest in Hyrule.[15] He recounts a time where he had left to gather firewood at the Lost Woods as a young boy.[16] He remembers venturing deep into the Woods when the wind suddenly started blowing in several directions.[17] He ran away then, only to find himself outside the Woods as the fog lifted.[18] He believes that there is something dangerous in the Lost Woods and warns Link to stay away.[19] His story is actually a clue to navigating the Lost Woods, by following the wind's direction.

Tears of the Kingdom

Ashe still resides at Woodland Stable in Tears of the Kingdom. During the day, he can be found standing next to the Sign across the road from the Stable.

When Link speaks to Ashe, he will greet him.[20] Assuming that Link is heading to Goron City, Ashe warns him to avoid any Gorons with Marbled Rock Roast.[21][22] If Link asks about his wording, Ashe reveals that he directed another traveler to the Bedrock Bistro along the New Road, but he has not returned yet.[23] If Link asks about Marbled Rock Roasts, Ashe explains that travelers have been attacked by Gorons who were holding them.[24] At the end of their conversation, he claims it is Woodland Stable's duty to keep its guests safe, and he invites Link to return if he is ever in trouble.[25][26]

  8. "I don't know why anyone would want to climb it, but if you're so inclined, the best approach is from Akkala to the east. If you see Foothill Stable, you're on the right path—the Maw of Death Mountain is near the stable. But Death Mountain is an active volcano." — Ashe (Breath of the Wild)

  14. "I'm sure you have family that cares about you, so please don't dismiss this warning as an old man's rambling. I've seen too many young'uns head off to Hyrule Field...only to never come back." — Ashe (Breath of the Wild)
  15. "The Great Hyrule Forest is north of here. It's the largest forest in Hyrule..." — Ashe (Breath of the Wild)
  16. "In the heart of the forest sits a terrifying group of enchanted trees called the Lost Woods. I once got lost there while collecting firewood when I was but a boy." — Ashe (Breath of the Wild)

  23. "[Also?] There's a restaurant up this mountain path toward the city. I point a traveler in that direction quite some time ago, but there's been no sign of them coming back. It's hard not to imagine they've gotten into some sort of trouble... So just try to give a wide berth to any Gorons you might see with strange rocks." — Ashe (Tears of the Kingdom)
  24. "[Strange rocks?] The Gorons are typically so gentle and hardworking. But lately it seems the young ones have stopped working altogether, and are even playing tricks on travelers... I met one injured traveler who told me that the Gorons in question all carried "strange rocks." So if you also plan to go to the city, watch out for Gorons with strange rocks." — Ashe (Tears of the Kingdom)
  25. "I don't really know what this all means... But it's the duty of a stable to keep its guests safe, so I can't help but worry." — Ashe (Tears of the Kingdom)
  26. "[Goodbye.] It's a stable's duty to keep travelers safe, so if you ever find yourself in any trouble, don't be shy about coming to us." — Ashe (Tears of the Kingdom)
