Link talking to the Pikango in LoZ: BotW.

Pikango is a character appearing in the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


Pikango is a wandering artist who can be found all over Hyrule. Because he has traveled so widely, he can be consulted to find some out of the way places from a simple picture.




Pikango: Oh, it's you! Great timing! I have some news. I did more research regarding the Great Fairy Fountain...and I have a lead! However...although I know of the spot where it's likely located, it's really hard to get there. However...although I Know of the spot where it's likely located, it's really hard to get there. I'm not sure I can do it... *SIGH* Even if it's just a picture, I'm dying to see it...

Link: I'll help you out.

Pikango: Oh! I knew it! I just KNEW there was someone like me nearby who appreciates true beauty. Sadly, I can't pin down the exact location of the Great Fairy Fountain. I haven't put it all together yet, but there's a suspicious place I have my eye on. In fact, I was about to head there now. Would you like to come along?

Link: Sounds great!

Pikango: Great answer! Just what I expected from a fellow beauty connoisseur like you. All right then. Follow me!

Pikango: So...tired... Hill aren't easy for old fogies like me. Sorry, but I don't think I can go on... *pant* The Great Fairy Fountain should be.... along the path that leads past the shrine. *pant* That's what I've been told, anyway. Yeesh, I'm completely out of breath! That always happens right about here. *pant* The weather is awful, too, so I think I'd better rest for a bit. But hey, if you find it... don't forget to get a picture!

Pikango: That secret place veiling in mystery... The Great Fairy Fountain... Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor lightning strike stays me from swift completion of this self-appointed task!

Link: Oh, I found it.

Pikango: Ahhh! You... you found it?! Really?! Are you serious right now?! And if you are, then where's the picture? You remembered to bring the picture, right?

Pikango: ... This... is the Great Fairy Fountain? It's certainly beautiful, but... I thought it would be more... sacred and elegant. Well, I'm impressed you found it. I want to give you something to show my appreciation, but I don't think I have anything on me... I know! Is there a place you've been seeking? I've traveled all over Hyrule, so I might be able to help you find it.

Link: Recognize anything?

Pikango: A large gate with a snowy mountain beyond it... oh, I know that place! There is a big mountain east of this village... It's called Mount Lanayru. At the base of Mount Lanayru, on the west side of Naydra Snowfield, lies that gate. I'm almost certain! I'm glady I knew about that location. I suppose my help was useful, then?

Kakariko Village[edit]

Pikango: They say there's a Great Fairy Fountain somewhere in this village. I hear it's utterly breathtaking. Aesthetics aside, they say it can bestow people with mysterious power! It's too bad I just can't figure out the exact location... But I'm not gonna give up! Oh, and if I find out anything, I'll be sure to let you know.
