Zelda: Link's Awakening Easter Egg - Speak to the Gumbies

To pull this off you simply dust one of the electrical "gumby" critters (they were green on the snes)with magic powder. After he changes (you will know by the "groucho" glasses he is wearing). Now, with the sword button walk EXTREMELY close to him and swing your sword. If done correctly he should tell you a short message about having a short name and the ability to display many polygons at a time. When I first discovered this trick I had no idea what the heck this little guy was talking about - then 2 years later Nintendo came out with the N64 (short name, generates polygons) and all was explained. Keep in mind though, I found not practical applications for this little trick

The four things he says include: "Hey Mon!" "You know me, I like short names the best..." "I can display millions of polygons!" "I definately need it, as soon as possilble!" Now what these statments mean, I don't have a clue... And also, you do have to get REALLY close to him or else it will still electricuted

in the French version it speaks first as young French people in the ghetto then comes a message from the French translator of the game (named Vero)"bons baisers de Tokyo, Vero" that means "hello from Tokyo, Vero"

Commanderraf: Of course the N64 theory is correct. Don't you think they used a really long time developing the Nintendo 64? Everything points to it... Short name (N64)... Millions of polygons... Come on, it can't be a coinsidence. Of course he's talking about Nintendo 64.

You can also do this on Zelda: Link to the Past (the one for SNES). If you talk to them on Link to the Past, they say something about the guy you talk to about the pendants, and the guy you get the pegasus boots from...can't remember the name.

In the German version that guy talks, after using the magic powder on him, about condoms and, "gib mir deinen Saft ich geb dir meine" which was from a song of the Fantastischen 4 what means as much as to shade.

I don't know what the answer is, but I can tell you that the N64 theory is wrong, because, you can use the "egg" in the first version (1993) and... come on, they aren't clarividents to imagine what they will sell in five years. By the way, if you have problems making the talk, here are the steps to get the info without getting harmed: 1.- Sprinkle the toadstool powder over him. (You know you did it right because his face will change.) 2.- Un-equip your sword. (You can do this by going to the item screen and pressing "A" in a blank space. If you have all the items, therefore no spaces, use the toadstool powder until it finishes.) 3.- Get near the and press "A", you'll talk to him and you won't get hurt. -Commanderraf

Also, when he is wearing the glasses you can approach him and hit A to talk to him. He says something like "Yo man!"

I think he speaks gibberish because the powder makes him drunk. That's how I think about it.

Okay, maybe I'm doing something wrong here. Is the Magic Powder that can be won in the Trendy Game at Mabe Village the same magic powder you're referring to? When I sprinkle it on the "gumbies", they just die and give me a rupee.

Artemis: You are at the wrong gumbies. The gumbies they are referring to are the electrogumbies, the ones who shock you if you hit them with the sword. There is one between the Mysterious Forest and the house of the Witch. Where is the GameCube reference? Please tell me...
