10 Easily Forgotten Items In Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

We completely forgot that these Tears Of The Kingdom things did something special.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has a lot of items, and it can be easy to forget what you have or what they do. Some things, like Bomb Flowers and Zonai Carts, get used a lot more than they should, while others get left behind and are forgotten.

Even though these things aren’t used much anymore, that doesn’t mean they’re not good. In fact, if you use them right, they can make Tears Of The Kingdom a lot more fun. The following things really shouldn’t be thrown away so quickly, whether it’s to make a fight more interesting or to make it easier to solve puzzles.

Muddlebuds can quickly change the way a fight is going, especially if you join one to an arrow and shoot it into the middle of a group of people. Your enemies will soon fight each other, forgetting that they should be on the same side.

This effect won’t last forever, but you can just send out another Muddlebud if it wears off or if the enemy you were briefly friendly with suddenly turns hostile again. If you’ve forgotten about these flowers, there’s a good chance you still have a good number of them in your collection.

With the Dazzlefruit on an arrow or shield, you can briefly blind your enemies in Tears of the Kingdom. Even though they will only be blind for a short time. You can take a few easy shots during that time.

Because the blinding effect of Dazzlefruit only lasts for a short time, it’s best to join it to your shield. So, when your enemy, whether it’s a Lynel or a Boss Bokoblin, hits it. You’ll have a chance to get the upper hand in the fight.

Like other area-of-effect plants that don’t do damage, Puffshrooms can make or break a fight if you’re up against a tough enemy. They can make your enemy temporarily lose track of where you are, giving you a chance to rush in with your close weapon and land a few good hits.

If you’re in over your head, Puffshrooms will give you a moment to run a short distance away and hide. This will give you a chance to catch your breath and start killing enemies with your bow. Just make sure you have another Puffshroom ready in case you need to hide again.

Keese Wings And Eyes

Remember that the Keese Wings and Eyes are in your backpack. And you can turn Link into the sniper he was never meant to be. Keese Eyeballs make your arrows go back to where they came from. Keese Wings make your arrows fly farther than before.

If you run out of Fire Fruit or Ice Fruit, just switch it out for a Keese Eye of the same element. Or, keep your distance and fire a few arrows fused with Keese Wings to kill your enemy before they can even get close. This is especially effective when facing Gleeoks.

Monster Fangs

Monster Fangs aren’t very useful and just take up space in your collection. If you forget you have them or don’t use them right. You could sell them for a few rupees, but there are much better things to sell to traders in Hyrule.

Instead, you should attach any Monster Fangs you have to your arrows to make each shot do a little more damage. Monster Fangs are a great way to make elixirs, and you should stock up on them every time you’re near a cooking pot if you want to fuse things to your arrows.

Hylian Pinecone

You might have used a Hylian Pinecone once or twice during the Regional Phenomenon quest to get to the Rito Village, but have you used them since then? You can find them almost anywhere in the snowy parts of Hyrule. And if you have a bag of wood and some flint, it’s not hard to take to the sky.

But being able to take off and glide a bit is useful for more than just flying. If you use this method to get up high and draw your bow during a fight, you can slow down time long enough to get some cheap shots in on an enemy, especially one that moves quickly like Phantom Ganon.

Sage’s Will

Whether you knew about these or picked one up and then forgot about it. The Sage’s Will can help you play and fight better when you use the Sages’ power. The Sage’s Will makes the power of each Sage even stronger, so it’s well worth your time to collect them. Especially if you’re fighting enemies like King Gleeok or even Ganondorf.

You can collect 20 Sage’s Will orbs. If you want to avoid fighting big bosses, you might want to collect these instead.

Towing Harness

You may have used the Towing Harness once or twice while doing the Stable Trotter’s quests to open the Great Fairies, but you should use it more often than that. If you need to get a Korok to their friend across the way, you can quickly solve this “puzzle” by attaching a pulling harness to a sled or cart.

Why should they take a Korok to their friend or build a vehicle that is too complicated and over-engineered when all they need is a horse with a Towing Harness and a plank of wood?

Homing Cart

You may have seen someone use a Homing Cart in a shrine once and then forgot about these dangerous Roombas. But you can pull them out of a Zonai Device Dispenser and use different weapons on them to get them to do your dirty work.

Stand back and be amazed as your army of Homing Carts with different emitters, spikes, and other weapons races toward enemy camps and slowly destroys them. Their only weakness is that they can’t fly. So if your enemies are on a stage above the ground, you might have to help them out a bit.

Time Bomb

If you played Happy Wheels, the remote bombs from the Sheikah Slate are probably something you miss. Or, if you forgot about the Time Bombs in Tears of the Kingdom, you would miss them. Even though they don’t do the same thing, they are close enough and pack more of a punch.

With careful planning, time bombs can still be used in fight. And it’s easy to blow up walls that can be broken down. Of course, you can’t have as many as you want. So you have to go to Zonai Device Dispensers to get more.
