Lon Lon RanchEaster Eggs
Although the Hyrule in Breath of the Wild is much changed, you can find the ruins of some familiar locations. Once such location is the Lon Lon Ranch from Ocarina of Time. In these ruins, you can find structures that match the layout of the ranch.
Gate of Time (Skyward Sword)Easter Eggs
Inside the Sanctum, you can spot a symbol that matches the Gate of Time from Skyward Sword. Check out the video below for a comparison.
Remixed MusicEaster Eggs
Several songs from past Zelda games have been hidden in the music of Breath of the Wild songs at different speeds. These include:
- Dragon Roost Island theme from Wind Waker (Rito Village theme)
- The Temple of Time theme from Ocarina of Time (Temple of Time theme)
- Title screen song from Ocarina of Time (Shrine theme)
- Zelda’s Lullaby (Hyrule Field theme)
- Ganon’s Tower theme from Ocarina of Time (Hyrule Castle theme)
- Item jingle from Ocarina of Time (Rune Download jingle)
Satoru Iwata tributeEaster Eggs
There is an NPC named Botrick who bears a strong resemblance to Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo who died in 2015. Not only does he have a similar appearance, but Botrick also talks about Satori Mountain and the Lord of the Mountain who appears there.
If you climb to the grove in Satori Mountain, you can find the Lord of the Mountain and take a picture of it with your Camera Rune. This adds a note to the Hyrule Compendium that states the Lord of the Mountain is believed to be the reincarnation of a sage named Satori.
To get the Master Sword, you will need to go to the Great Hyrule Forest. Start from the Woodland Stable and follow the past to reach the Lost Woods. Head to the entrance of the Korok Forest and light the unlit torch nearby. To properly navigate the forest, walk in the directions that the flame tilts. If the fog starts to get thick around you, you’re about to be warped back to the start, so you’ll need to backtrack a little to avoid that. Eventually, you’ll reach the Master Sword, although you’ll need 13 heart containers to take it.
The Master Sword is unbreakable and operates on a cooldown period instead.
All your base are belong to usEaster Eggs
The runes that appear on the Sheikah Slate and in Shrines are based on the Hylian text from past games in the series, which has let fans translate the messages found in the game. Some are serious, but some are humorous, including one that reads “All your base” in reference to the infamous “All your base are belong to us” line from Zero Wing.
Cucco AttackEaster Eggs
As has become standard in Zelda games, attacking a Cucco enough times makes an entire flock of them attack you.
True Ending (All Memory Locations)Unlockables
To unlock the True Ending, you’ll need to complete all of the main story missions, free all of the Divine Beasts, and unlock all of Link’s 18 lost memories. If you do this, a new cutscene will play after the regular ending.
5 memories are unlocked as you proceed through the game, 12 must be found by finding the locations of the pictures taken by Zelda, and the final one’s location is told to you by Impa after you find the 12 picture memories.
If you’re having trouble finding the memories, follow the video below to see where each one is located.
