OKAY, hot fuCKIGNGJGH take!!! bUT!!
I liked Ooccoo.
THERE! I FUCKING SAID IT!!
Gamer Dude Bros have been going on about how ugly and weird and useless she, her son, and her entire species are for years, but like??????? YOU KNOW WHAT, THEY’RE WRONG. Oocoo has been nothing but GOOD and KIND to you fellas and you treat her like THIS??????
She talks like a very polite flustered middle aged British woman, and I adore that. Her manners are all on point, and she’s always like “Oh! There you are ! Hello!!!“ and then we team up and it’sjfjkhgjhkgjkhdgkhjdfkhj 🤝🤝🤝
I’ve heard people say they’ve never needed to use her once, and like, good for them... But that doesn’t mean she’s useless? I’ve employed her help twice in the Temple of Time and City in the Sky to reorient myself when Dungeon Fatigue began to kick in.
Marshie(if you read this!!!), I know I was joking when I said the Oocca were the ultimate victims of Zelda’s Reverse George Lucas Syndrome, but honestly? I’d love to see these guys in another game. Revamp them, make them more in line with the other Zelda species, and you’ve got some good fellas right there for the taking!
Basically, what I’m saying is, I think the ick-factor for Ooccoo and Ooccoo Jnr. has been way overhyped. I personally found them very charming once I let the verneer of “hAh! stupid ugly bird people!” fall. Hell, even Link warms up to them. It’s very clear that by the end of their little arc, they’re on good terms, and Ooccoo would be happy for us to visit.
Considering City in the Sky is my favourite dungeon so far, hell yeah, I’d love to pop by again.
