I AM ERROR. UG! Errol. Can't talk today!

Error is a character from The Legend of Zelda series. He is a man residing in the Town of Ruto who helps Link in his quest. Due to the perceived absurdity of his name and dialogue, Error achieved a certain level of infamy among video game fans, and eventually became part of one of the most widespread and popular Internet memes based on the Legend of Zelda series, despite being a relatively minor character appearing in only one game.

In the years before knowledge of his original Japanese name was easily accessible, it was mistakenly believed that his dialogue, "I AM ERROR", was the result of the game's programming suffering from a bug which caused the game not to render his name correctly, rather replacing that part of the game's script with an error message.


Uh, I thought his name was "Error"... Maybe they mistranslated his name and his real name was Errol!
