I have all of the animal companions. I like Moosh, because he is hard to control and it can be difficult to get through the highlands. Ricky is ...um... different. He always makes that wierd sound after like 2 hops. Oh, if you want to get Ricky, you have to get a score of 200 or better at the shooting game in the past in order to get his flute. For Dimitri you need to buy his flute in the shop in the present for 200 rupees. Dimitri is my favorite. Who doesn't like a swimming dodongo. He can eat any enemy in one bite and can swim up waterfalls. He the most handy partner and he owes you the most. Moosh was scared by ghinis, Ricky lost his gloves and was upset (lame), but Dimitri was almost devoured by tokay. Yeah, I think Dimitri owes you the most and is the best.
