The Minish are a race of tiny people, who live in various places throughout Hyrule. They are secret helpers to the people, often tending to tasks and maintenance that would otherwise be left undone. Link can shrink down to Minish size with the help of Ezlo and magical portals scattered over Hyrule. While small, Link can interact with the Minish and help them finish tasks that must be completed before he can progress.
