Most Annoying Things in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Ok, I love this game. I think it's a masterpiece and SO much fun to play. But at some point, every game is gonna have something in it that's annoying.

The Top Ten

1 Climbing in the rain

Let me climb up to the top of this mountain so I can get the tower, I saw. The rain says how bout no.

I just want to climb to the top of that hill but nooo, it always has to rain at the worst possible time. - eventer51314

Ahaha first world problems - TristGamer

For me, I always like climbing. I always climb. Oops, the rain comes up. NOO, you slip! Low stamina, you fall, blah blah blah.
PS: Slipping in rain lowers stamina? That's like tripping in rain makes you lose one heart! Seriously?

2 Weapons always breaking

There's just no way around it. Weapons breaking in the middle of a fight is irritating. And don't you hate it when a weapon you really like finally gives out? On the bright side, this mechanic does make finding new weapons more rewarding & exciting, because you really need them! - eventer51314

What's the glory in new weapons if all of them would break? - Ultron123

3 Octoroks

They don't miss. Ever. Even when you're at full sprint, they nail you. So annoying. - eventer51314

4 The Yiga Clan

Th Yiga Clan members use to only appear when you talk to someone disguised as clan member. But after you raid their base to get back the thunder helm, they will appear out of nowhere to kill you. I cannot tell you how many times I missed an event, just because of the Yiga Clan.

But free bananas... - mattstat716

Total punks. I now understand how annoyingly evil con artistry is. Screw any NPCs who beg for help. - eventer51314

Plot twist: This was a Donkey Kong Country game in disguise!

Seriously though, these guys never stop. I must have gotten over 200 bananas from all of them I've killed. - Zach808

5 Sailing

Wind Waker's legacy *cough* *cough*.

Why do we have to use Korok leaves constantly? Can the wind that allows us to paraglide not apply to a boat sail too? That's pretty stupid if you ask me. - eventer51314

6 Dyeing clothes

This just really irritated me. I wasted I don't know how much time & a butt-load of rupees trying out colors, for what? There's not much selection and the colors are garish. I gave myself time to get used to them too. Now every time I pass the dye shop I'm like, "You're a crock." - eventer51314

Anna Wintour would not be happy - TwilightKitsune

7 Link showing almost no emotion

So annoying. I know the developers made him like this so that players could project their own thoughts/emotions onto him. But I personally find it a little detracting to the impact of the story. Makes it less interesting, in my opinion, because everything feels one-sided. And really, it breaks the immersion too (kinda ironic, huh? ). There ends up being an in-game explanation for his seriousness, but that's not till the very end and it still doesn't excuse his almost eternally blank expression. Just a little bit more emotion would have made the story better, in my opinion. - eventer51314

8 Horseback archery minigame

It's so inferior to the one in OoT. I did not enjoy it one bit. I would never have played it again, if I didn't want that new tack. Even the music is super lame and annoying. I actually got angry playing this one. - eventer51314

9 Lynels

LOL Lynels are easy, except maybe early game. If you can't kill them, you must be awful

They're so tough. I just use ancient arrows to get them out of my hair. I really don't care about properly defeating one. - eventer51314


This game's Lynels? Yeah, f--- them. I want to rip their head off of their spine. They're cheap difficulty because you can't do sh-- to kill them without an upgraded Stasis. - mattstat716

10 Mipha's crush on link

She's a fish. I mean, Princess Ruto having a crush on him in OoT didn't bother me at all because it was just played for laughs and his reaction was appropriate. But Mipha's romantic subplot is all serious. "We should spend some time together." I wanna vomit. I just found the whole thing very off-putting. I liked her as a character though. - eventer51314

The Newcomers

? The Crazy Flower Lady

Lol this was elite - LarrytheFairy

? Prince Sidon Prince Sidon

The Contenders

11 Cooking

It was fun the first couple of times, then it got kinda tedious. - eventer51314

12 Revali Revali
13 Overworld is literally too big

I don't think so. It's not empty, it's full of stuff to do. You never feel lost or alone either. You never know who or what you'll run into. And you know, sometimes it is fun to get lost. - eventer51314

It's because the game wants you to explore.

14 No Reward for Finding All the Captured Memories
15 Extremely limited arrow supply

Not true. But I understand the sentiment. I am GREEDY when it comes to arrows. I'll run around after a fight picking up any arrows that missed. Sometimes I'll farm arrows from bokoblin archers. They're also one of the main ways I spend my rupees. Anytime I find someone who sells them, I buy their whole stock. - eventer51314

I did not add this entry. Did you not catch the disagreement in my comment? - eventer51314

16 Horse getting stuck
17 That one "stranded on remote island" side quest

Half of this is optional so its not like it's a valid reason to whine about when its not needed lol - ShyGuySwag

18 Objects randomly de-spawning
19 Zelda Zelda Princess Zelda is a fictional character in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda video game series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto and introduced in its original entry in 1986.
20 Guardians

They're only annoying until you get the right weapon. Then they're so much fun to take down. - eventer51314
