Gentari is a character in The Minish Cap.[4]


The Minish Cap

Gentari is the wise elder of Minish Village, who explains what Link must do to succeed in his quest: reforge the Picori Blade and infuse within it the Four Elements scattered and hidden across Hyrule.[6][7]

When Link reaches Gentari's house, he will mark on Link's Map where the Four Elements are hidden.[8] He guides Link towards the Earth Element by suggesting that he use the passageway through Festari's abbey to reach the Deepwood Shrine, where the first Element is hidden,[9] and asks Link to report back to him after securing it.[10]

After Link obtains the Earth Element, Gentari instructs him to seek out Melari on Mount Crenel to have the Picori Blade reforged,[11] and opens the curtains in his room, revealing a passageway that leads to the southwestern portion of the Minish Woods.[12]

After Link obtains the Water Element from the Temple of Droplets, he can Fuse Kinstone Pieces with Gentari,[13] which inspires Belari to finish the Remote Bombs.
