The wildest Tears of the Kingdom builds we’ve seen

Here are some of our favourites.

This is the most American thing that ever happened in Hyrule. Having “Fortunate Son” playing over this video is the icing on the cake.

Yes! It has real hulls in it Tears of the Kingdom to which you can attach sails to build a real ship. The game also has Link’s blue lobster shirt if you really want yours Wind Waker on.

I can’t figure out how this person dropped the robot from the main vehicle, and it’s going to keep me awake at night.

I like this Hinox shredder because it’s super easy to DIY.

I have to record at least one healthy using Link’s awesome and terrible powers. One of the little things I appreciate Tears of the Kingdom is that when you use your powers around normal people, they, quite correctly, freak the hell out. Even the steward constructs, who would have seen King Rauru wielding the same powers, exclaim, “Your actions are threatening, I must protect myself,” before going into their shells when Link disables the Ultrahand. Everyone in Hyrule has correctly estimated that no matter how nice he seems, how sweet he plays with children, or how much he meddles in local elections, Link is a walking weapon of mass destruction that must be guarded against at all times.

What shocks me here is not so much the torture prison as the enormous cost of building such a thing. Each of those bright green materials costs almost nothing to make – they aren’t cheap, and Zonaite isn’t that abundant – and it takes serious time in The Depths to accumulate the amount of money needed to build something like this. That kind of commitment is more impressive than the number of violations of the Geneva Conventions on display. These fan-made contraptions also highlighted just how odd Nintendo’s Talus warrior was tears’ promotional material. There’s Link on his pathetic little machine, and he’s only got two measly guns? No bombs? No flamethrowers? Lol, lmao.

One thing regarding the huge cost involved in making some of these machines is that players have already found several glitches in duplicating items. So if you want to go crafty crazy, you don’t have to sacrifice precious zonai loads or machines or go full John Wick in The Depths to get the materials you need. One item duplication glitch works by rapidly exchanging the items fused with Link’s arrows, but that’s the slow and very finicky way. A more recently discovered method is much simpler, requiring only a short height to paraglide, the item you want to replicate in the last spot in your inventory, and a single additional item.

The latest update didn’t fix these glitches, so now’s the time to cheat as many diamonds as you can – Hyrule is expensive and Link’s job as a freelance journalist doesn’t pay too much.
