Banji is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[4][5]


Breath of the Wild

Banji is a resident and worker of the Tabantha Bridge Stable, where she will greet travelers as they come by.[6] During the day, she does several chores for the stable with Ena, such as tending to the White Goats, cataloging the cargo, and caring for the Horses.[7][8][9] She believes that the White Goats at the Stable are the cutest in Hyrule.[7] At night, she watches her children while they sleep in the Stable's Beds, as it makes her happy.[10]

When it Rains, Banji will run inside and comment on the Weather.[11]

Banji offers directions to travelers who pass through Tabantha Bridge Stable.[12] If asked about the east, Banji speaks about Ludfo's Bog. If Link has not yet completed the trials on Thundra Plateau, she will explain that it is an area with constant Thunderstorms.[13] She considers the storm clouds to be a sign from Hylia to stay away.[14] If Link has completed the trials, she notes that the Thunderstorms recently disappeared after many years.[3] She believes this to be the doing of Hylia.[15] Banji tells Link that she is thinking of taking the Horses from the Stable on a trip to Ludfo's Bog soon, since the storms have cleared.[16]

When asked about the south, Banji tells Link about the Tamio River and Satori Mountain, claiming there is a legend about a "lord" over all living things as well as a god who watches over the Stables, which their aunt told them stories about.[17] For the west, she tells Link that beyond the Tabantha Great Bridge lies Rito Village,[18] and she also warns him about the Divine Beast Vah Medoh that recently appeared above it.[19]

Finally, when she is prompted about the north, Banji tells Link about Konba, a man north of Tabantha Bridge Stable who loves to race.[20] She asks Link to visit him, since he must be bored on his own.[21]

  13. "[About the east.] The east huh? The east... Yeah... My aunt always tells me I should travel all over while I'm still young... But that Ludfo's Bog isn't a place anyone should travel to in my opinion. It's had a constant cover of black storm clouds since long before my aunt was born." — Banji (Breath of the Wild)

She also tells them about "the god who watches over the stables." Pfft..." — Banji (Breath of the Wild)

It's a REALLY long walk to Rito Village, though, so you'll definitely want to bring some snacks." — Banji (Breath of the Wild)
