The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Character Collectibles are a new thing to look for on Koholint Island, in addition to the various Pieces of Heart and Secret Seashells. Throughout the course of the game, players have the opportunity to win ten figurines of well-known enemies from the Mario series, included as a nod to the fact that both the remake and the original contain a plethora of enemies from the Mario series, who cannot be found in any other Zelda title. With every figurine placed correctly and dungeon that the player beats, a new figurine is up for grabs in the Trendy Shop in Mabe Village. Here's how to find and get them all.

Bow Wow, our ever-faithful companion, is only available after the player has completed the Main Story of the game. Bow Wow naturally belongs in the house where the real one is situated.

Unfortunately, there’s no grand prize for placing all of the figurines. However, after collecting Bow Wow in the Trendy Shop, the shopkeeper awards you with a Chamber Stone, which has the Monsters+ effect (which adds more monsters to your created dungeons), and reduces the price of the Trendy Shop to 5 rupees.
