Anouki are a race featured in the Legend of Zelda series. They are small humanoids that live in cold climates. The Anouki are known for being kind and friendly.


Anouki prefer to live in very cold environments such as the Isle of Frost in the World of the Ocean King and the Snow Realm of New Hyrule. An animosity exists between the sect of the Anouki tribe in the World of the Ocean King and the more menacing-looking Yook tribe, but the Anouki are largely the only race inhabiting New Hyrule's Snow Realm.


During the events involving the Phantom Hourglass, residing on the Isle of Frost that is located on the Great Sea in the World of the Ocean King. The enemy of the Anouki tribe is the more fierce-looking Yook tribe, and a peace agreement made 100 years before these events. The Anouki took the western side and the Yook took the eastern side. The Anouki are one of the three tribes who were originally given the Azurine, one of the Pure Metals needed to create the Phantom Blade, however the Azurine is kept in the Temple of Ice on the Yook's side of the isle. Link is tasked with navigating the eastern half of the isle in order to reach the temple and retrieve the Pure Metal, though he is able to do so with the assistance of the Anouki.

During the events involving the Spirit Tracks, The Anouki live in Anouki Village in the new Hyrule's Snow Realm after moving from the Isle of Frost. The Anouki have a monster infestation to deal with, and the chief Honcho requests that Link pair off the villagers into squads to fight back against the beasts. However, the Anouki of Hyrule are very fickle, only working with those meeting their specific requirements. With the assistance of the Anouki tribe, Link is able to successfully locate the Snow Sanctuary to meet with Steem and fully restore the lost Spirit Tracks of the Snow Realm in order to reach the Snow Temple.

One of the Anouki, Noko, works at the village's spring, creating Mega Ice, an ice so cold it can freeze lava. It is necessary to transport at least some of this ice to complete the game, as parts of Goron Village are blocked off by active lava flows.


The Anouki are small humanoid creatures, with antlers growing from their heads. Usually, they appear to have no warm hide, and have to wear fur clothes, suggesting that they are not indigenous to such a cold area as the Isle of Frost, though not much is known about their tribe's full history or their true anatomy.

Trivia & NotesEdit


  • The Anouki are honest people and never lie, as compared to the Yook, who have the opposite reputation.
