Breath of the Wild

Merchants can be found travelling to and from different Stables, as well as on the paths between Stables and towns. When it's raining, most merchants will change out their stock, selling better items than they do during regular weather.

Other Appearances

The Wand of Gamelon

In The Wand of Gamelon, the Merchant is the owner of the General Store in Sakado.[5] He sells Zelda Rope, Lantern Oil, and Bombs. His mannerisms suggest that he is quite sinister and greedy, and is more interested in making a profit.[6] If Zelda does not have enough Rubies to afford something, he suggests that she fight a few Goriyas.

Trivia

  • In The Legend of Zelda, the clothing of the Merchants changes to match the color of Link's Tunic when he wears a Red Ring or Blue Ring.
  • In the Merchant's cutscene in The Wand of Gamelon, a Bomb is marked with a price tag of 20.00, erroneously suggesting that an unstated decimal currency is used as part of Gamelon's currency. The Bombs are actually priced at 20 Rubies for three.
