Tingle made his first appearance in Majora's Mask. He wears green tights accented with red and appears in various The Legend of Zelda games to help out - usually in bizarre ways. He is a talented map maker. His catchphrase is the supposedly magical words Kooloo-Limpah. In Majora's Mask he states that he invented these words himself and asks Link not to steal them. His appearance is believed by some to be based on Koji Kondo, Nintendo's lead composer.
