Article on Zelda Wiki Tingle

Tingle (チンクル, Chinkle) is a character from The Legend of Zelda universe.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Tingle on Great Bay.

Tingle, in his Majora's Mask design, appears as a stage element in the Great Bay stage. Similar to his appearances in the actual game, Tingle starts off by floating in the air with his balloon, appearing to draw another map; his balloon can also act as a temporary platform. However, if an attack hits the balloon, or if a player stands too long on it, it will pop, dealing 1% of damage to anyone directly next to it, and sending Tingle back down to the ground. After some time on the ground, Tingle will reinflate his balloon and go back up into the air, to repeat the process.

Tingle can be used like an item with an Action Replay. He can only appear on the TEST stage if an Action Replay is used.

Trophy information[edit]

Tingle Trophy Melee.png
Tingle is a mysterious middle-aged man who thinks he's "the very reincarnation of a fairy." His bizarre behavior and unique speech are just little pieces of his vibrant personality. Tingle travels by way of a small hot-air balloon, making maps of the lands below him. Pop his balloon, and Tingle will fall to earth to sell his maps.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

Tingle appears as an Assist Trophy in Brawl, taking his design from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, the only Assist Trophy from the vast The Legend of Zelda series. Tingle summons random effects while chanting "Tingle! Tingle! Kooloo-limpah!". These effects include:

  • Creating a plethora of Hammers & Golden Hammers. Note that Hammers and Golden Hammers will appear even if those items are turned off.
  • Throws Banana Peels in the air, making the whole ground slippery which results in a lot of tripping. Note that this also affects the summoner's teammates in a team battle. Characters also automatically trip upon landing.
  • Releases lots of flowers, making the camera zoom in on the fighter who summoned him.
  • Gives everyone Superspicy Curry status.
  • Flies away releasing a plethora of balloons, no negative effects other than a possible minor distraction to the fighters.

Tingle camera glitch[edit]

The Tingle Camera Glitch (discovered by Supergamesiper9) involves the camera getting stuck until the match ends. To perform the glitch, Assist Trophy and Dragoon must be on. If Tingle is summoned, he must use the flower effect. Then the other player needs to collect all of the Dragoon parts. Then they need to shoot the player who summoned Tingle (the camera will be zoomed on them), KO'ing them. The camera will be stuck facing to the right until the match ends.

Trophy information[edit]

A strange little man easily spotted by his trademark green bodysuit, bright nose, and pointy beard. Tingle has frequently appeared around Hyrule and always lets those he meets know that he's a fairy and selling homemade maps. In a recent adventure, Tingle escapes a sad and dreary life to embark on a magical adventure in the delightful, dreamlike paradise of Rupeeland.

Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

As an Assist Trophy[edit]

Tingle reprises his Assist Trophy role from Brawl, with the same functionality.

In Smash Tour[edit]

Tingle's trophy is a blue item in Smash Tour. When selected, it randomly shuffles the fighters of all players including the user. Its effect can be blocked by the Proto Man item.

Trophy information[edit]

Tingle appears as a trophy in both versions of the game. The trophy can be purchased from the Trophy Shop for 300G. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U it is part of the Ocarina of Time & Majora's Mask Trophy Box.

ntsc Never seen without his green bodysuit, it's a wonder this strange little man is single at 35, isn't it? In The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, he was locked up for causing trouble. In Smash Bros., he'll appear on the scene, shout "Kooloo-Limpah!" and unleash all sorts of madness.

pal Single. 35 years old. Dressed head-to-toe in green. In The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, this wannabe fairy gets locked up for being a "troublemaker". And he's one in this game, too! His magic incantation, "Kooloo-limpah!", causes all sorts of madness that'll really shake up your battle.

Tingle as he appears in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.

Tingle first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. He is often considered one of the Zelda series' oddest and most noticeable recurring characters. Tingle is a short character that resembles a middle-aged, half-sized man dressed in a green suit. Equally as odd or perhaps more so than that is his personality, primarily his delusional insistence that he is a reincarnation of a fairy. In Majora's Mask, he was a map maker. If Link wanted a map of a certain area, he could buy a map from Tingle for a certain amount of Rupees. Whenever Link ends a conversation with Tingle, Tingle would say "Tingle, Tingle! Kooloo-Limpah", which are his supposed "magic words". Tingle later appeared in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, where he made Triforce Charts readable by saying his magic words (at the price of 398 rupees). Tingle has also appeared as the star of his own series of games.
