Balloon Fight Wiki

Tingle is a character from the Legend of Zelda series.


In Tingle's Balloon Fight DS, he uses one red Balloon and one blue Balloon, and wears a green suit. In Multiplayer, other players see Tingle's Balloons as green. He has a large pink nose, large ears, and has black hair, which is usually not seen. His design in this game is directly based off of his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.


Tingle is 35 years old and believes he is a fairy, as stated in the Legend of Zelda series. His first appearance was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64. He has two brothers, Ankle and Knuckle. Although David Jr. wears similar clothing and is often seen with Tingle and his brothers, he is not actually related to them. These four characters operate the Tingle Tower, which can be visited in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and seen in the background of Tingle's Balloon Fight DS.

In Tingle's Balloon Fight DS

His gameplay is practically identical to the Balloon Fighter in the original NES game. He has the ability to walk on the ground and fly using his Balloons. If both of his Balloons are popped, he will fall into the water and lose a life. He cannot drop or re-inflate his Balloons.


  • In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there is a spirit of Tingle which can be summoned by using a spirit of the Balloon Fighter and a Fairy Bottle.
