Ravio is a major character in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. He operates the item shop with Link's house. Ravio is frequently accompanied by his pet bird, Sheerow, who tends to mimic many of his gestures and emotions.


Ravio is a young man, the same age as Link. He wears a purple bunny hood that hides his face, and an ankle-length purple tunic, tied together by a brown belt embedded with a green Rupee. Beneath his tunic, he wears leather boots and vermillion leggings. He also wears a blue and black striped scarf.

At the end of the game, he removes his mask and reveals his face to Link. It is shown that he looks just like Link except with dark purple hair and green eyes.


Link encounters Ravio soon after encountering Yuga when he discovers an unexpected guest in his house. Ravio asks Link if he can stay a while. Link discovers a sign outside the Eastern Palace and learns of an item being opened south of the castle. When he returns home, he discovers that Ravio has turned his house into an rental item shop.

Towards the end of the game, Ravio reveals his true identity. He is originally Link's counterpart in Lorule. However, unlike Link, he was a coward. He learned of Princess Hilda's plan to work with Yuga to steal Hyrule's Triforce but, he was too afraid to do anything directly. Instead, he traveled to Hyrule in the hope of finding someone who could take on the pair. In Hero Mode, if Link visits the Vacant House, he can find Ravio's journal which details the plan.

  • Ravio is shown to be left-handed, as Link is, in his demonstrations of the items he rents out.
  • Ravio's costume makes him resemble Link's bunny form in the Dark World in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
  • Ravio's purple appearance greatly resembles that of Nabbit from New Super Mario Bros. U. It has been dismissed as an unintentional coincidence of the development teams working close together.
