These Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Myths Are Put To The Test

Zelda: Breath of the Wild contains a vast world with complex mechanics that yield some surprising results when experimented with. Here are some myths in the game that may or may not actually work.

YouTuber DefendTheHouse has started a series testing out the various myths in the game. While some of these legends are nothing more than rumors, there are a few that actually work with the game's features. To begin with, the Volume 1 video confirmed that Link can reflect beams from a Guardian by using a shield. It is also worth noting that if timed properly, this method can kill the mechanical nightmare in one hit.

Moving on, one interesting myth was that Link could prevent fall damage by landing on enemies. In truth, the claim is as wild as it sounds since Link dies on impact despite landing on one. Although, one interesting tidbit is that the enemy will actually suffer some damage as Link lands but it still is not enough to kill it. Incidentally, the YouTuber was able to prove that Link can break fall damage by mounting on a horse as seen in his Volume 3 video.

Meanwhile, another true Zelda: Breath of the Wild myth is that the hero can ride a Guardian if he manages to use the paraglider to land on top of it undetected. If successful, Link can stay on top of the machine's head while staying safe from its lasers. Even so, Link will not actually be able to control the device but merely stand or crouch on the spot.

Moving on, the infamous Eventide island strips Link of all his equipment but DefendTheHouse proved that players can still bring in items by dropping them on the sailboat. From there, they can head towards the shrine quest with the items still present on the boat. Finally, if a player can somehow manage to bring a Guardian to a Stone Talus, the two sub-bosses which fight each other.

Zelda: The Breath of the Wild has done an impressive job when it comes to the elements in the game interacting with each other. While the game is far from perfect, it manages to capture a sense of realism despite its animated graphics. Fans can now play the game on the Wii U or Nintendo Switch.
