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


The Minish Cap

Melari is the elder of the Mountain Minish who live on Mount Crenel and is a revered Minish blacksmith.[5] As the leader of Melari's Mine, he helps Link reforge the Broken Picori Blade into the White Sword.[6] He also directs Link to the Cave of Flames to find the second of the Four Elements, the Fire Element.[7] After the White Sword has been reforged, Melari tells Link that he must infuse it with the Four Elements in the Elemental Sanctuary, the entrance to which is somewhere in Hyrule Castle.[8]

After Vaati impersonates King Daltus, Link can return to Melari's Mine and Fuse Kinstone Pieces with Melari,[9] resulting in a Bean planted atop Mount Crenel to grow into a beanstalk; at its top is 160 Rupees and a Piece of Heart.
