This page explains how to use the Picto Box to get all of the figurines for the Nintendo Gallery in Wind Waker. Below is a checklist with instructions on how to get pictographs of each character and enemy in the game.
You can also take a look at Nintendo Power's figurine checklist PDF.
Abe - Go to Outset Island during the day and take a picture of the guy in the pig pen at the top of the hill. Be sure to remove the pig from the pen in order to have a clear shot of Abe.
Aryll - Take a picture of Link's grandmother at Outset, and you will automatically get a figurine of Aryll, too.
Crab - Crabs hang out on beaches on a lot of islands. Don't get too close or it will burrow into the sand. Make sure it's facing you (you'll see its eyes) and take a zoomed-in picture.
Grandma - I'm sure you know your own grandma by now. She's in your house on Outset Island. When you get her figurine, you automatically get Aryll's.
Jabun - The only way to get this pictograph is to buy it from Lenzo. This pictograph is available from Lenzo on nights when part of the right half of the moon is missing. You can also get the pictograph if it is day time and last night's moon had the right half missing.
Joel - On Outset, Joel is one of the two boys who lives in the pigpen house (not the one with the runny nose).
Mesa - Mesa is the guy on Outset who was outside cutting grass. Eventually the only way to find him is to go into his house at night.
Orca - Orca is the old man on Outset who taught you how to use your sword.
Pig - You can take a picture of any pig. There are some on Outset and some on Windfall. You can even take a picture of the huge black pig.
Rose - Rose lives on Outset, in the house that has a pig pen.
Seagull - You can take a picture of any seagull. My method is to cut the grass near the edge of the gallery island where the seagulls flock. Spread all-purpose bait where the grass was, then stand back, zoom in, and take a picture of a seagull facing the camera.
Sturgeon - He lives on the second floor of Orca's house.
Sue-Belle - This is the girl on Outset who walks around with a jar on her head during the day and is in Sturgeon's house at night.
Zill - He is the kid on Outset who has a runny nose and lives in the house with the pig pen.
You can find all of the following characters on Windfall Island.
Anton - If you haven't gotten Anton and Linda together, Anton will be walking around town. If you did get him together with Linda, he will be standing under the tree in the courtyard. Put him in the far right of the frame to keep Linda out of the picture to get his figurine.
Candy - Candy is the sailor who stands on the pier during the day. Get in your boat and take a picture of him facing the camera.
Cannon - You will find Cannon in the bomb shop.
Dampa - Dampa stands outside of the bomb shop during the day and is in the Café at night. He wears a red hat and a blue shirt.
Doc Bandam - Bandam is behind the counter of the potion shop.
Garrickson - Garrickson wears all red. You took a picture of him putting a letter into the mailbox.
Gillian - She's behind the counter in the coffee shop.
Gossack - He is the guy in the coffee shop who got scared when you threw a jar at him. He is there during the day. To get a good picture, stand near the counter on the step leading up to the dining area.
Gummy - He wears a yellow shirt with a black vest. The easiest way to get a picture of him is to participate in one of Zunari's auctions and take a picture of Gummy afterward. You can also get a picture of him during the day, but it's difficult. He is up on the ledge that you reach by climbing a ladder next to an arch in the courtyard. Stand on the rail to one side of him and get as much of him in the frame as you can.
Kamo - Kamo is the grumpy guy on the stairs. You gave him a picture of the moon. He wears purple and black. It is easier to get a picture of him during the day.
Kane - Kane is the guy in yellow who stands near the postbox during the day.
Killer Bees - These are the kids who walk around the courtyard. When they are facing you, get a picture of all of them. It won't work to take a picture of them when they are walking in circles around you.
Kreeb - He wears an orange shirt and yellow hat. He stands on the walkway that leads to the windmill/ferris wheel. Get up on the ledge at an angle from him and get as much of him as you can in the frame.
Lenzo - He is the bearded man in a yellow outfit who upgraded your picto box. Take a picture of Lenzo standing behind the counter. The sculptor won't accept a picture of Lenzo standing next to the pictography woman.
Linda - Linda wears and orange dress and stands in the courtyard by day. She and Anton are fond of each other.
Maggie - To find her, go up the staircase of the courtyard during the day and go through the door at the end of the hall. She wears a purple dress. Stand at an angle to one side of her to take the picture.
Maggie's Father - Find him in the same location as Maggie. He wears a top hat.
Mila - Mila stands in front of Zunari's shop during the day. She is dressed in rags. Since she moves around a lot, face the left side of the shop, take out your picto box, and wait for her to face you. Quickly take the picture before she walks away.
Mila's Father - He is the formerly rich man in the green outfit with orange facial hair who stands by the tree near the pier during the day.
Minenco - She wears an orange vest and stands outside the potion shop during the day.
Missy - Missy is on a pier around the east side of the island during the day, so get into your boat to take the picture.
Mrs. Marie - She is the schoolteacher on Windfall. Her door is near the courtyard and has the chalkboard next to it.
Pompie & Vera - These are the gossipy women who stand near the town gate during the day. Get a picture of one of them to get both figurines. Be at an angle where you can get one of them on one side of the frame.
Potova & Joanna - These girls are on the beach area with the flowers during the day and are sometimes in Mrs. Marie's school. Just take a picture of one of them. Get close enough that one of them turns to face you, and take her picture.
Sam - Sam has sideburns and a brown vest. He sits on a bench near Zunari's shop. You have to go out in your boat to get his picture. Sam is around the northwest side of the island.
Tott - Tott dances by the grave all day and all night.
Zunari - You bought your sail from him. He is short and wears a blue, fur-lined coat. The easiest way to get his picture is to go into the auction house at night. Otherwise, during the day, walk to the side of Zunari's shop and get close so that he turns his head toward you, and stand at an angle where you can see his face and body. The sculptor won't accept a picture of Zunari behind the counter.
Most of the following characters can be found on Dragon Roost Island.
Baito - Baito is the human with a beard and tattoo who appears behind the mail counter after you sort 25 or more letters in the mail sorting game.
Basht and Bisht - Basht and Bisht are guards. One of them guards the town exit on the first floor that leads to Dragon Roost Cavern. The other is through the door behind the chieftain. You only need a picture of one of them to get a figurine of both of them.
Chieftain - The Chieftain is the father of Prince Komali. He wears a crown and a red tabard. He is in the room where you first met Medli. When you get the Chieftain figurine, you get the Quill figurine automatically.
Hoskit - Hoskit stands on the upper level of the inside of Dragon Roost Island next to the chieftain's door. He carries a spear.
Ilari - Ilari tried to send the moblin's letter to Maggie. He's on the ledge that you can reach by going through the door next to the mail counter, on the opposite side of the place where you grappled to reach Medli. To get his picture, jump down to sea level where there is a ledge that you can swim to that faces Ilari. Zoom in and take the picture.
Koboli - Koboli is the Rito behind the mail counter.
Kogoli - Kogoli will completely disappear from the game after you play the Earth God's Lyric for Medli. He stands on the far right of the ledge just outside of the Rito post office. Stand on the rail across from him at a distance, then walk just close enough to him that he turns his head toward you. Get as much of his body into the picture as you can. Don't play the Earth God's Lyric for Medli until you have gotten Kogoli's figurine.
Laruto - Laruto is the Wind Sage who appears when you learn the Earth God's Lyric. The only way to get her picture is to buy it from Lenzo. He sells it on nights when the left half of the moon is missing, or days when last night's moon had the left half missing.
Medli - Medli is the young Rito girl who helps you get into Dragon Roost Cavern. Take her picture before playing the Earth God's Lyric for her. When you find her playing the harp on the cliff, talk to her, then take her picture. Be sure to get her figurine made before completing the Earth Temple, because you can't take her picture after that.
Namali - He is inside of Dragon Roost Island. He carries a clipboard and doesn't have spiky hair.
Obli - He can be found on the Flight Control Platform, which is one square east of Dragon Roost Island. You have to pay 10 rupees to see Obli at the top of the platform. He has a mustache and is actually a human dressed up as a Rito.
Pashli - Pashli is inside of Dragon Roost Island. He carries a clipboard and has spiky hair.
Prince Komali - He is the Rito boy who gave you the pearl. Later in the game, he stands on the ramp leading up to town. Stand on the rail across from him to take his picture.
Quill - You automatically get Quill's figurine when you get the Chieftain's figurine. See above for how to get the Chieftain's figurine.
Skett & Akoot - These guards stand behind the Chieftain. You only need a picture of one of them.
Valoo - Valoo is the big red dragon who roosts on Dragon Roost Island. To get his picture, sail to the north side of the island, getting close enough to see more than just his shadow. Zoom in and take a picture when you can see his head.
Willi - Willi is the person you pay to get onto the Flight Control Platform, which is one square east of Dragon Roost Island. He does not have a mustache and is actually a human dressed up as a Rito.
Zephos & Cyclos - You have to take a picture of Cyclos before learning the Ballad of Gales. Find the giant cyclone. I have found it at Mother & Child Isles. Get caught in the cyclone and take a picture of the cloud at the top of the cyclone and any part of Cyclos's body that you can see on the cloud. If you get warped away before you can take a picture, just sail around to find the cyclone again.
The following characters can be found in the Forest Haven before completing the Forbidden Forest, and in various locations around the world afterward.
Aldo - Aldo is a Korok who has a bluish-green heart shaped leaf on his face who looks like he is frowning. Before completing the Forbidden Forest, Aldo is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, he goes to Cliff Plateau Isles, which is one square east of the Forest Haven. To reach him, jump into the hole, jump across the wooden platforms, kill the boko baba, use the baba bud to jump to the platform, then jump to the platform and burn the planks with a fire arrow, then glide into the sparkly light.
Carlov - Carlov is the sculptor in the Nintendo Gallery who makes all these figurines, so I'm sure you can find him easily. Here is how to open the Nintendo Gallery if you have not done so. Buy a hyoi pear. Go to the Forest Haven and meet the Deku Tree to get the Deku Leaf, then climb the Deku Tree and glide to a baba bud on the far side of the room. Go outside, change the wind to the direction of the island with the big hatch on it, then glide down. Turn around to face the island that you glided down from to see a white switch. Use a hyoi pear to make a seagull activate the switch, which will open the Nintendo Gallery.
Deku Tree - The Deku Tree is the tree in the Forest Haven with the big face. You can't miss him! To get his figurine, speak to him, then stand on the middle of the lilypad and take a picture of his face.
Drona - Drona is a Korok who has a yellow leaf on his face. Before you complete the Forbidden Forest, Drona is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, he goes to the Private Oasis, which is one square south of the Tower of the Gods.
Elma - Elma is a Korok who has a green, lilypad-shaped leaf on his face. Before completing the Forbidden Forest, Elma is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, Elma goes to Needle Rock Isle, which is one square southwest of Greatfish Isle.
Fado - Fado is the Kokiri Sage of Wind. You can only get his picture by buying it from Lenzo. He sells it on nights when the moon is a crescent on the right side, or on days when last night's moon was a crescent on the right side.
Hollo - Hollo is a Korok who has a brown leaf on his face. He stays in the Forest Haven making potions out of boko baba seeds. He is in the room to the right of the Deku Tree.
Irch - Irch is a Korok who has a long ellipse-shaped leaf on his face. Before completing the Forbidden Forest, Irch is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, Irch goes to Shark Island, which is one square west of Southern Fairy Island.
Linder - Linder is a Korok who has a butterfly-shaped leaf on his face. Before you complete the Forbidden Forest, Linder is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, Linder goes to Greatfish Isle, on the spiral-shaped island near the beach.
Makar - Makar is the Korok who plays the violin. You can take a picture of him right before you play the Wind God's Aria to him. Be sure to take his picture before completing the Wind Temple, because you will not be able to afterward.
Manny - Manny is the orange-haired guy in the Nintendo Gallery who carries a bag with an 8-bit Octorok in it.
Oakin - Oakin is the Korok with a yellowish-green heart-shaped leaf on his face. He looks like he is smiling. Before you complete the Forbidden Forest, Oakin is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, Oakin goes to Star Island, which is one square north and two squares west of Windfall Island.
Olivio - Olivio is the Korok with a pink leaf on his face. Before you complete the Forbidden Forest, Olivio is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, Olivio goes to Eastern Fairy Island, which is one square north of the Tower of the Gods.
Rown - Rown is the Korok with a five-pointed leave on its face. Before you complete the Forbidden Forest, Rown is with the Deku Tree. Afterward, Rown goes to the outer area of Mother & Child Isles. Warp to Tingle Island and sail one square northwest to get there.
The following monsters can be found in various locations around the Great Sea. Below, I list the easiest way that I have found to locate and take a picture of each one.
I have written a monster figurine walkthrough that explains where to go to get most of the monster figurines in a relatively short amount of time.
Armos - Go to the Wind Temple and use the spring to go across to the second room. There is no need to get close to the armos or wake it up. The sculptor will accept a picture of an inactive armos.
Armos Knight - In the Wind Temple, use the warp jar in the first room, wait for the wind to stop, then carefully glide to the recessed area that is across and to the right. Try to land on the edge to prevent the Armos Knights from coming to life. The sculptor will accept a picture of an inactive armos knight.
Big Octo - Look for a swarm of seagulls in the sky. If you get close to the area that they are flying over, a Big Octo will come out of the water. Wait for it to rise all the way out of the water, then fit as much of the Big Octo as you can fit into the frame. Be sure to get the figurine before defeating all of the Big Octos, because you will not be able to get a picture after that.
Blue Wizzrobe - Blue Wizzrobes are normal wizzrobes. You can find them on the platforms near Seven-Star Isles.
Boko Baba - Go to the Forest Haven and make your way inside. You will pass Boko Babas on the way.
Bokoblin - In Dragon Roost Cavern, go through the hole that was behind the block in the first room. Stay far away from the Bokoblins to take a picture.
Bubbles - Go a few rooms into the Earth Temple until you reach a room with no monsters. Go through the door on the right. A bubble will come out of the coffin. Be sure to zoom in, because the sculptor will not accept the picture if the Bubble is very small in the picture.
ChuChu - Go through the first rooms of the Earth Temple until you find a ChuChu.
Darknut - You can find one in the Tower of the Gods. Take the picture right after the Darknut starts moving, and don't remove any of the Darknut's armor until you have taken the picture.
Darknut (with Shield) - You can find one in the Earth Temple. When the Darknut starts moving, put Medli down and stay still to prevent the Bubbles in the room from coming to life. Take a picture once the Darknut gets close enough to fill the frame. Make sure that there aren't any Bubbles in front of it.
Floor Master - Go through the first rooms of the Earth Temple to reach the room with the giant face. Go through the door on the left. Ignore the chuchus and climb up to the other door. Go through. Make the floormaster come out of its hole (the sculptor won't accept a picture of just the hole) then hit the floormaster or stun it with the boomerang, then take a picture of the arm and the hole.
Ganondorf - In theory, you can take his picture during the final battle, but it's much easier to just buy his picture from Lenzo. He will sell this picture on nights when the moon is full, or on days when last night's moon was full.
Gohdan - Gohdan is the boss at the Tower of the Gods. The easiest way to take his picture is to wait until you have defeated it and it returns to its place in the wall. Just take a picture of its head in the wall, fitting as much of him in the frame as possible.
Gohma - You don't need to beat the game to get Gohma's picture. If you have the deluxe picto box, you can take Gohma's picture when you encounter it again in Ganon's Tower. Carlov will accept the picture even though it appears black and white in Ganon's Tower. During the battle, run around the edge of the room near the wall and wait for Gohma to get its claw stuck in the ground. Turn around and aim your camera and wait for it to get its claw unstuck. When Gohma leans back with some of its legs showing, take the picture.
Gyorg - These are the purple shark-like creatures. They appear in many places around the sea, such as Tingle Island. Wait in your boat for a gyorg to start circling you, and take a picture of its fin sticking out of the water.
Helmaroc King - Your battle with Helmaroc King in the Forsaken Fortress is your only chance to get his picture. Wait for the bird to fly away such that you can't lock onto him anymore. Aim your camera, then wait for him to turn to face you and come close. If he is over the tower, he should be close enough. Get as much of the bird in the picture as you can. If Helmaroc King is flying at an angle, be prepared to run away quickly after taking the picture.
Jalhalla - Jalhalla is the boss of the Earth Temple. Take a picture of his head and as much of his body as you can fit into the frame. Try to take the picture at the very beginning of the battle, before he starts attacking and moving around.
Kalle Demos - Kalle Demos is the boss of the Forbidden Forest. Take the picture at the beginning of the battle before Kalle Demos starts attacking. Just take a picture of the big blue bulb. You don't need to fit the whole thing into the picture, as long as most of it is there.
Kargorok - One place to get this picture is Dragon Roost Island. If you are facing the beach where you first arrive, turn right and go around the island that way. There is a kargaroc flying around the tall rock spires. Get as close as you can without making the bird attack you. Make sure that it fills the frame of the picture and is facing the camera.
Keese - One place to get this picture is in Dragon Roost Cavern. Go to the second room of the dungeon. There are Keese flying over the bridge. They fly around in circles, so be patient and get a picture of the Keese facing you. Try to get the Keese to fill at least 1/4 of the picture.
Magtail - In Dragon Roost Cavern, go to the first room of the dungeon and jump into the warp jar. Then go back into the warp jar that you just came out of to reach the dark green room. Get a picture of one of the magtails across the lava.
Mighty Darknut - You have only two chances to get a picture of a Mighty Darknut. The first is when you go up to the Master Sword pedestal after you power it up and reassemble the Triforce. Two Mighty Darknuts appear. Kill one of them, then walk to the edge of the area to make the other Mighty Darknut follow you. After it gets close, run to the other side of the platform, avoiding the flames. Take the picture. Your final chance is when you go to the top of the stairs leading to Ganon's room. Kill one of the Mighty Darknuts and take a picture of the other.
Miniblin - Go to Outset Island and walk up the hill. As soon as you hear the miniblin noises, take a picture, making sure that there aren't any others in the foreground. Just a picture of the Miniblin's head and torso is enough.
Moblin - There are many Moblins around the Great Sea. An easy way to get a picture is to go the first room of the Earth Temple, glide across to teh door, and go through into the room with the Moblins.
Molgera - Molgera is the boss of the Earth Temple. At the beginning of the battle, walk slowly up to the dark spot to make Molgera's head come out, then run away as far as you can, turn around, and take a picture of its head and tongue sticking out of the sand.
Morth - In the Outset Forest Cave, find morths inside of the log in the pit. Get a close-up of a morth with its eye facing you.
Mothula - In the Outset Forest Cave, when you jump down from the first ledge, you will find a Mothula. It will be right under the ledge that you need to jump from, so make a running start to jump over it, then run away. The mothula will walk toward you, but occasionally it will stop and sit there for a second. That is the best opportunity to get a picture.
Octorok - Go to the Forest Haven. Go to the ledge where you first have to use the grappling hook, then stand on the far left side of the ledge. You can take a picture of the Octorok in the water ahead of you.
Peahat - Go to the Wind Temple and go slightly past the place where you fight the stalfos near the entrance. Use the warp jar on the left. There are peahats flying around the center of the room.
Phantom Ganon - You encounter Phantom Ganon the second time you go to the Forsaken Fortress. Make sure that Phantom Ganon is floating above you but is far away enough to not hit you with his sword. Make sure that he hasn't been holding an energy ball for a while. Take the picture and then run out of the way of the energy ball.
Poe - In the Earth Temple, go to the room with the giant face. Go through the door on the left. Climb up to the other door and go through. Climb up the farthest block and go through the door up there. In here, lure the moblins into the starting staircase and get rid of them to make sure that they don't obstruct your view of the poes. Then, from the stairway, turn right and go through the hole in the wall. Take a picture of a poe from that direction.
Puppet Ganon - If you are trying to complete the gallery before beating the game, then this is the last figurine that you will get. After the battle starts, take a pictograph of Puppet Ganon facing you. It's enough to just get a picture of its face. Then save and reset before beating Puppet Ganon so you can be sure that you got a good enough picture to get the figurine.
Rat - There are rats all over the submarine that is slightly southwest of Bomb Island. Avoid the rats until you defeat all of the bokoblins, and then use your boomerang to kill all but one of the rats. Follow the rat with your picto box. Sometimes it stops and looks to the left and right. If it does that and faces you, take the picture. If you see it coming right for you, get out of the way so that it doesn't steal your rupees.
Red Wizzrobe - This is the mini-boss of the Wind Temple. Kill as many of its summoned monsters as you can, avoid any flames that the Wizzrobe shoots at you, and wait for the wizzrobe to disappear. While out of range of any monsters, take out the picto box, and wait until you hear the noise that the wizzrobe makes when it reappears. Circle the room until you see the wizzrobe, looking up at the platforms if it's not at ground level. Zoom in quickly, making sure no other monsters are in the picture.
Redead - Go to the room in the Earth Temple where Redeads come out of coffins. Lure one out of its coffin, but don't get close enough for it to freeze you.
Seahat - Warp to the Tower of the Gods and sail southwest to Southern Triangle Island, but don't get too close to it. As you approach, you will see seahats flying around the island. Stay far away to take the picture, but get close enough so the seahat is in color in the picture.
Stalfos - Go a few rooms into the Wind Temple until you encounter a stalfos. Once it appears, back up and take a picture.
Ankle - He is the guy in the purple shirt on Tingle Island.
Beedle - Go into one of Beedle's shop ships, then lock on to Beedle and walk backward until you're not locked on anymore. Then take the picture of him. You have to do this to prevent Beedle from thinking that you're trying to sell him your camera (which he won't buy from you anyway.)
David Jr. - He is the guy in the white shirt on Tingle Island.
Fairy - Warp inside of Mother & Child Isles and take a zoomed-in picture of a fairy when it is facing you.
Fairy Queen - To get this figurine, you must buy the picture from Lenzo. He sells it on nights when the moon is a crescent on the left, or on days when last night's moon was a crescent on the left.
Fishman - This is the fish who has a paintbrush and can draw islands on your sea chart. To get a picture of Fishman, get close to any island and look for the fish guy jumping out of the water. Don't get so close that he swims under your boat. Be patient and wait until you can take a picture of him when he is facing you.
Gonzo - Gonzo is the tall pirate with the swirl tattoo on his chest. You will get his figurine automatically when you get Tetra's. See below for instructions on getting Tetra's figurine.
Great Fairy - The only way to get this picture is to buy it from Lenzo. This pictograph is available from Lenzo on nights when part of the right side of the moon is missing. You can also get the pictograph if it is day time and last night's moon had part of the right side missing.
King of Hyrule - The only way to get this pictograph is to buy it from Lenzo. This pictograph is available from Lenzo on nights when part of the left side of the moon is missing. You can also get the pictograph if it is day time and last night's moon had part of the left side missing. You will get the Princess Zelda figurine when you get the King of Hyrule figurine.
Knuckle - You can only get a figurine of Knuckle if you use the Tingle Tuner on Outset Island. Find out how to make Knuckle appear in the Finding Jabun section. After completing Knuckle's tasks as described in that section, Knuckle will be in the flowers between the Tingle statues on Tingle Island. He wears blue.
Link & the King of Red Lions - You automatically receive this after you have collected all of the figurines, but you don't have to get the Knuckle figurine.
Loot - Loot wears a white sleeveless shirt and is at the Boating Course all day and night. The Boating Course is one square south of the Forest Haven.
Mako - Mako is the pirate who wears glasses. You automatically get his figurine when you get Tetra's figurine. Read below to find out how to get Tetra's figurine.
Niko - Niko is the pirate with front teeth that stick out. You automatically get his figurine when you get Tetra's. Read below to find out how to get Tetra's.
Nudge - Nudge is the pirate with long hair and a yellow bandanna. You automatically get his figurine when you get Tetra's. Read below to find out how to get Tetra's.
Old Man Ho Ho - You can find Old Man Ho Ho on several islands. For example, he is on Bomb Island, which is one square north of the Forest Haven. You need to take a picture of him facing the camera, so get into your boat and sail in front of him.
Princess Zelda - You automatically get a figurine of Zelda when you get a figurine of the King of Hyrule. See above to find out how to get a figurine of the King of Hyrule.
Salvage Corp - These are the guys in diver masks that you find around certain islands. For example, you can find them near East Triangle Island, which is one square east of the Tower of the Gods. Take a picture of the whole boat with the divers facing you.
Salvatore - He runs the sploosh/kaboom battleship game on Windfall. Since he is behind a counter, you only need to take a picture of his upper body.
Senza - Senza is the tall, bearded pirate. You automatically get Senza's figurine when you get a Tetra figurine. Read below to find out how to get Tetra's figurine.
Tetra - The only chance to get a picture of Tetra is after you defeat the Helmaroc King and return to the mysterious underwater place. Tetra will be following you, so you can take a picture of her at this point. I find that the best way to get her picture is to make her walk behind one of the flagstones in the water that are to either side of the stairs up to the entrance. This will make her get stuck behind it. Then, get up on the stairs and move slightly to the side so that Tetra moves and gets unstuck from behind the flagstone, then quickly take a picture as she is walking toward you. Get as much of her as you can fit into the frame. As long as you have some of her head, all of her torso, and some of her legs in the picture, it should be enough. Getting Tetra's figurine gets you all of the pirates as well.
Tingle - Tingle is the guy in green who is in the tower on Tingle Island.
Wandering Merchant - The Wandering Merchants are the ones with giant backpacks who wear hats. One of the easiest of them to photograph is the one on Greatfish Isle. He is on the other side of the beach.
Zuko - He is the short pirate with big sideburns and a red bandanna. You automatically get his figurine when you get Tetra's. Read above to find out how to get Tetra's figurine.
