He looks a little like Waluigi, doesn't he?

Do any of you remember Ingo?

The Minish Cap’s Ingo has been placed 19th in 1Up’s “The Top 20 Video Game Landlords.”  That’s second to last, unfortunately; and there are no other characters from the franchise.  But in a list of only 20, 19th is still pretty good!

If you don’t know who he is,

Ingo has been in two games (three if you count Ingo’s counterpart from Majora’s Mask): Ocarina of Time, and Minish Cap.  In Ocarina, he was a loyal farmhand, at least until Ganondorf came around.  Ingo quickly took his loyalty elsewhere, becoming one of Ganondorf’s humble servants, with a search for money being his ulterior motive.   He soon kicked Talon out of the ranch, and took it for his own.  When Link comes to the ranch, he takes Epona from Ingo, and thwarts his plans to get money in return for Link’s ride.

In Minish Cap, however, he’s almost completely different.  Ingo owns a piece of property in Hyrule Castle Town, and decides to rent it out.  He asks Link to refer any potential tenants to him, and pretty soon, Link finds some: Din, Nayru, and Farore. Unfortunately, only one oracle can stay on the property.  Whichever one you choose gives you a magical item that will boost your stats, depending on which oracle you chose.

So he ends up helping you in each game, even if indirectly.

Do you have another character from the Zelda series you think should be on the list?  Do you think Ingo should have been placed higher (or lower)?  Tell us in the comments below!

    Uh oh we all know Ingo is a sore loser.

  • Ingo=Luigi
    Talon=Mario
    Malon has a bowser thingy.

    • cloverplayer

      thumb me down for not thinking of this sooner if you wish, but I just realized: could Malo and Talo (TP) be the descendants of Malon and Talon?
      that would kinda fit the name changes/similarities of the names of the three godesses:
      Farore: 'Faro'n Province
      Nayru: La'nayru' Province
      Din: El'din' Province

      • SilverSkulltula

        That is a Head Scratcher/ backward knee slaper But maybe they rule the provinces

  • BamaLynx

    Would Anju be considered a landlord since she owns the Stock Pot Inn in MM? If so, then Anju should have gotten the nod over Ingo.

  • Ingorman

    Actually, in the Minish Cap doesn't apperar Ingo. He is Gorman ,from Majora's Mask.

    • !!! You just gave me a huge hint about the Zelda timeline! Minish cap has to be in the kid timeline because Gorman in Minish Cap could be a relative of Gorman from Majora's Mask or Vise Versa!

      • SilverSkulltula

        You really think too much about the Timeline and I've found some stuff too I'll tell you my my theory just vote my comments up enough… that i accutally a horrible idea but ive an idea i'll tell you later

    • Well, the list said Ingo, and even though his official name is Gorman in MC, they're essentially the same character.

  • Crazymallets

    Ingo has also made an appearance in the oracle games as well. And according to Zelda wiki, he was in a tingle game.

  • KingDodongo1

    That's a strange topic for a top 20 list…

  • Harvey

    The Gravekeeper in Ocarina Of Time N64 should also be a Landlord.Maybe.

  • Nichyevo

    That's a pretty specific top 20 list, if I may say…

  • starwebs1

    How many other video game landlords are there?

  • Peter

    He must be rich with his new game Ingo's Mansion.

  • SilverSkulltula

    There are thousands of Landlords and I don't like Ingo in OoT becuase he grabs his head and has an seziure when you win.
