The Postman is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. He usually interrupts Link to give him mail when completing main quests or side quests. He's either well-liked by some Zelda fans or considered annoying, even more so than Navi, Fi, and Kaepora Gaebora.

Why He Shouldn't Be Delivering Mail

  1. Unlike Kaepora Gaebora, he'll interrupt Link every time he completes a quest or dungeon (except Twilight Palace or Hyrule Castle, they are the last two dungeons). While Kaepora does this too he only does it in the first half of Ocarina Of Time (before completing Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly) and one-more time when you complete the child-portion of the Spirit Temple. Also unlike Kaepora, he'll interrupt you when trying to go to a location that exits Hyrule Field or going to a part of Hyrule Field that transits to the other part of the field. Though for Keapora, he does this by going near to the trees which is forced in some early story parts, after child-portion of the Spirit Temple (only once) and optional trees which he'll not appear if you complete Inside Jabu-Jabu's Belly (which was an easy dungeon though a little more harder than Dodongo's Cavern due to Ruto being an escort character for the dungeon although she can't die and the Big-Octo mini-boss fight).
  2. His voice is very irritating as he sounds like a mentally ill hormonal teenager losing sanity and him saying "Hey!" can get very annoying.
  3. For some reason no enemies attack him despite going to Hyrule Field, which has many enemies infested there and none of them seem to find him.
  4. His butchering of the "Item-Get" music and chuckle can get annoying very fast.
  5. His theme that plays ruin the atmosphere of the game. While there are humorous moments in the game, he still feels out of place for a dark and mostly serious Zelda game.
  6. His mail is completely pointless as you'd already know you unlocked things while progressing the game which all other Zelda games don't tell you most that you unlocked stuff by progressing as you'd already know.
  7. Even when you're in wolf form, he'll interrupt you and you'll automatically turn back into a Hylian. This is so Midna doesn't make Link accidentally scare someone due to this form causing many to treat him like an outcast and monster while in this form.
  8. His attempt of being a comic relief character in a Zelda game is poorly executed and pointless.
  9. He is pretty much a bring-back of the "constant interruptive NPC" trope as many would think Nintendo would drop it after Kaepora Gaebora and Navi as well. To say after Twilight Princess, Fi (Skyward Sword) does interrupt the player but at least to inform you some useful stuff such as low battery so that you can save your game before the battery in the Wii Remote dies and to give you helpful tutorials on the motion controls which were met with divisive reception due to being forced. Also, Fi's interruptive nature was toned down in the HD remaster and the battery warning can be easily avoided by charging the Switch, Joy-Cons and Pro Controller.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Unlike Kaepora Gaebora, he doesn't make you wait for a long speech and the player can't repeat his speeches.
  2. Much like most of The Legend of Zelda characters, his design is passable to look at.
