The Hand is a character in Oracle of Ages.[1]


The Hand appears in the toilet of an outhouse in Lynna Village.[2] The Hand is in need of paper and asks Link for some. Link can give the Hand the Stationery as part of the Trading Sequence. In exchange, the Hand will give him the Stink Bag, the next item in the Trading Sequence.

Link can throw various items into the toilet, including the Pot next to it, to cause different reactions from the Hand.[3][4][5][6][7][8]


  • The concept of a hand in the toilet is based on Japanese ghost stories where a hand grabs from beneath the toilet whenever someone sits in the bathroom.[9]
