There have been several characters named Malon throughout the TLoZ series. Most have appeared to be of Hylian descent, but in a couple games her ears were rounded. In the game series, she keeps the general design of red hair and simple clothing, and each Malon has a love for animals and a talent for singing. Her design was slightly modified and made a touch more feminine in Akira Himekawa's manga adaptation. In the manga, her sleeves were given the princess pouf, her apron took on a busier pattern, and her hair was drawn a little fluffier.
