The Bean Seller is a recurring character in the Legend of Zelda series, appearing in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. He is a strange-looking and plump man that is constantly sitting and eating the Magic Beans that he sells.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
The Bean Seller sits on the banks of Zora's River, in front of the gate selling beans. He sits there eating his beans day and night, and before Link buys one, he admits that they are not selling too well. The truth is, they are not selling at all, and Link is his only customer. The Bean Seller sells the first bean for 10 Rupees, and shows Link how to plant them in soft soil. Every time Link buys a Magic Bean, he raises the price by 10 Rupees, claiming that they are getting more and more popular, even though Link is still his only customer. When Link has purchased 10 Magic beans (the last one being 100 Rupees), the Bean Seller won't sell him any more, claiming to be out. When Link ask about the Magic Beans that the Bean Seller has left over in his bag, he says that he plans to eat them all, and thus, can not sell them.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
He is found in a Grotto in the Inner Palace Garden of the Deku Palace. He is again selling Magic Beans, which are now needed to reach the Imprisoned Monkey in a higher level of the Palace Gardens. He keeps the price of beans a constant 10 Rupees, and he is not the only person that Link can buy Beans from. Link can now get them from A Business Scrub, and in South Clock Town.
