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 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.

I hate the mission where you have to raid the Yoga clan, namely because of the swordsmen. If they spot you, every door locks you in, and they attack you, as well as these annoying bowmen. Oh, and fighting them when they appear out of nowhere is equally tedious. At least there’s Kohga.

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

I hate the yiga clan!

2 Something Almost Kills Link, and then He Dies by Just Rolling on the Ground

I'm screaming, "COME ON! GET UPPPP!" at the screen.


3 The Crazy Flower Lady

This lady is creepy, she gives me nightmares

She is unbeatable.

Harder then thunderblight

so annoying. I eventually just started ripping her flowers with the Master Sword's power.

4 Guardians

You know what’s more annoying than regular guardian? GUARDIAN SKYWATCHERS! You can never escape from them. They spot you no matter what, and at least for parrying guardian lasers on regular guardians, it only takes three hits. But for skywatchers it takes like almost 15! God I want them to just burn.

These things are annoying to come across. They show up randomly and will massive damage if you can’t avoid them. Everything else about this game is awesome so far, though!

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

They shoot you from a long range, and are even in the great plateau.

5 Climbing in the rain

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?

I often do something important to a quest only for it to start raining, so I have to wait for it to stop.

Personally I hate climbing in the rain because it wastes your stamina even with climbing gear

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

6 Motion Control Shrines

To be honest, most of these were pretty fun in my opinion. With the exception of Myahm Agana. But Toto Sah, Katosa Aug, Ze Kasho, and Joloo Nah were tolerable.

It is so annoying how sensitive the motion controls are for these puzzles.

Myahm Agana and Katosa Aug - TERRIBLE

Toto Sah, Ze Kasho, Joloo Nah - Meh


7 Korok Seeds

Why do so many people hate these? Oh, it’s because of the Hestu’s Gift. Can you just be quiet and be happy with the fact that you can expand your inventory and do fun puzzles? Besides, why would you want to collect all 900 in the first place?

What's your prize for getting all the korok seeds? A BIG KOROK SEED THAT SMELLS TERRIBLE AND HAS PRACTICALLY NO USE. That is *SUCH* a great reward!

8 The Blood Moon

My 4th blood moon occurred during the boss fight against the Yiga Clan leader. The 1st was in Hateno Village. If the scientist at the duelling peaks stable says that there was some event coming up but he can't remember what it is, a blood moon will happen.

I actually enjoy the blood moon. There is this ruin where the bomb trial shrine is with like six stationary guardians that I always farm for ancient materials after a blood moon

Revived my lynel.

sometimes happens during fights

9 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!

I don't dislike the weapon durability system its just that the weapons break ALL THE TIME! Like you can't even go one monster without breaking a weapon! So annoying.

If I have a really good sword, and breaks in two hits, I have to use a rubbish club against a Lynel or a Guardian. Bam. Dead.

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

10 Lynels

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.

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

Lynels are not that hard.

You just dodge and flurry until they ded.


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.

The Contenders
11 Stamina Wheel

You’re swimming, and drown.

12 Octoroks

Yes they miss. I never get hit by them. You have to trick them by making them think where you will be by the time their shot gets to you. Basically just run or walk and then right when he’s about to shoot, just stop. It’ll land where you would have been if you had kept running or walking.

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

They just pop out and shoot you.

13 That one "stranded on remote island" side quest

Eventide Island was fun lol. I remember the Hinox chased me throughout the whole island, and I had to hide from it. I’ll never forget that experience 😅

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

The moblins on top of the mountain are armed with soldiers broadswords, and just destroy you.

I'll have you know, I beat this and only cried 34 times!

14 "Your inventory is full!"

THE HYLIAN SHIELD! AND THEN I have to get rid of a lynel sheild. I'm starting to like the korok seeds. HESTU! MORE INVENTORY PLEEEAZE

15 Revali

He's such a SHOWOFF! These are his words that go in my head every time someone mentions him:
"Unless you can prove me wrong? " and "You must pardon me! " and that ever popular "Hpmph. Don't preen yourself for doing your job."
HONESTLY, go on youtube and watch all parts of "If Link could talk", what Link said to Revali was so halarious and SO worth it.

I hate him he is such a show off he acted s. Like he is better then link hate him so much and his sassy vose and he calls link little he should give some respect to link like every one else

I like Revali his divine beast was my first one that I beat

LITERALLY my head went nuts when I met him on medoh. He is so booossy.

16 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.

Toon Link, Twilight Princess Link and Skyward Sword Link all had emotion.

He just looks soulless.

Not a problem.

17 No Reward for Finding All the Captured Memories

You also get the Champion's Tunic. It's cool, I guess.

Why? It took me 2-3 days and it was painful.

18 Link Noises

Most Annoying thing ever

Ha heh ho heh ho himun himun, SOOO DANG ANNOYING!

19 Sailing

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.

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

20 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.

Most the other things here aren't so bad. Rain climbing becomes no problem later on. The Yiga clan can be ignored. But this... I wasted so much time for such a stupid reward.

It's hard, but you can get some good horse armor that looks pretty cool.

21 Kass

Whoever thinks that Kass is annoying, fight me. Seriously. Why is he on this list, along with Mipha and Sidon?

Music is kinda annoying

22 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."

Anna Wintour would not be happy

23 Oaki

This took weeks. *step on a twig* AH A GHOST hey Link stop following me I want to be independent now I have to start all over again. Seriously I ended up wasting all my arrows on him

Lost Pilgrimage
enough said.

24 Horse getting stuck

Hi-yah. Horse says "neiighhh". Then I have to back up.
