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 Crazy Flower Lady

She beats you up just because you step on her flowers. Who does that? And why of all places did she plant them in a shrine? And that last part is so difficult

This got me killed so many times. While it was very annoying, it was also very funny when she went absolutely cuckoo and made me lose hearts.

I spawned at the shrine and forgot about the flowers. good thing I needed to get out of there anyway

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

Okay, this doesn't happen to me anymore, but when I was a beginner, I would be like at the top of a cliff or something, and then a monster would come up from behind me while I was looking out and I'd fall to the ground. And then I'd roll off the cliff and drown or something. Also really, Link is the reincarnation of the Hero of Time, the guardian of Hyrule, the wielder of the legendary Master Sword, and many other things. I feel like if he got hit by an anteater with a stick, he'd just shrug it off, not flop on the ground and roll around in agony like the world was ending.

Now that I am advanced in the game, I have good armor and lots of hearts, so this never happens. However, when I was a beginner, this happened so many times.

Link be like: "Oh no, my life's in danger! What did they teach us about this is school? Oh yeah! Stop, drop, and roll!"

3 Guardians

Horrifying at first but eventually learn to time your attacks and never die from them again, but on the occasion, your horse ends up dying. Am I the only one that likes fighting Guardians on horseback?

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!

Guardians are fun to kill. I use to be terrified of them. I even put my sheikah sensor to tell me when a Guardian is near! But once you learn the technique they're practically harmless.

4 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?

This is very hard, because whenever you jump for height, you lose a lot of that height because you slip.

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

5 Weapons always breaking

I just can't. Every time I see the "Your ___ is badly damaged" it makes me wan't to set something on fire. And Zelda is a game where where that is possible.

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.

6 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

I love this. Without it how are you supposed to farm lynels? Or get monster parts for upgrades?

7 The Yiga Clan

I can't even. I'm sorry, but no. I don't care about the stupid Thunder Helm, Riju. We can get it back later when we've saved the literal world. And seriously, they are everywhere. Like, EVERYWHERE. There are so many of them; there's even one who has a crush on the one, the ugly, MASTER KOHGA. Like dude, that guy is anything BUT dreamy. I agree with one of the response options, which is "He has a dumb belly." If someone tells me, "I WILL TAKE YOUR LIFE!" one more time, I will cry. Also, has anyone else noticed that on MarioKart, the Link noises are just Yiga Clan noises inserted for Link? I kept having PTSD and freaking out because I heard Yiga Clan laughs, and I kept trying to figure out who it was. It turned out it was me, LINK. Like, WHY BRO?

Oh, dear Hylia, the Yiga Clan. One of the most annoying Zelda enemies of all time, that's on the same route with Like Likes. In the beginning of your journey, when you first set foot into Hyrule, they're alright, you just talk to a disguised member and fight him/her, but after you beat Master Kohga, they start getting on your nerves. They randomly spawn out of nowhere, they deplete your health like no tomorrow, and the huge ones with giant cleavers are the worst. They just let the wind chop you up with their swords. Apparently, they're a goldmine if you want to get Rupees. Yeah, right. I only got a measly few green and blue ones.

8 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.

Lynels are not that hard.

You just dodge and flurry until they ded.

I have never beat one. mainly because I don't have a good electric resistance meal/elixir

9 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?

There are so many and there probably isn't even a reward.

I enjoy getting them

10 Motion Control Shrines

That Hateno one is so annoying. Eventually I just cheesed it by gliding into the maze and using bombs to get the ball back to the main part

The shrine by Hateno Village was so annoying. It took me ages to complete it, as the Switch's motion controls aren't exactly accurate.

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

The Contenders
11 Stamina Wheel

Can't climb mountains or swim across rivers.

You're swimming, and drown.

I hate it when I drown

12 "Your inventory is full!"

This prevented me from getting so many good weapons. That was very annoying, as all of my weapons are good, so when I get more good weapons, I have to drop a good weapon.

It has made SO MANY new weapon finds extremely anticlimactic.

Hate hate hate.

13 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 will just shoot you out of nowhere. That is annoying, as most times, I don't even see them until I already lose health. The only good thing is that they are weak and have little health.

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

14 The Master Sword trials

I hate gauntlets... Except for the ones on the tunic of time, and the other tunics with them. <Ba-Dum Crash!>

15 That one "stranded on remote island" side quest

I know how to beat it with good weapons you
drop all you want to keep on the raft and go to island on the raft and BOOM you have stuff you can fight with.

I found it and I went back one save file because I want to wait until I get 3 more hearts.

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

16 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.

He thinks he's the best. He's the worst
In Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, he says that the Champions would be a off without Link, they would be better off without Revali, in fact, Age of Calamity, Breath of the Wild, and the entire series would be better off without him

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

17 No Reward for Finding All the Captured Memories

You get to learn some of Link's backstory. You get the Champion's Tunic which looks SO COOL. Also the Champion's Tunic can help you see enemy HP and it can be upgraded to level 4 with 32 defense points! Which is the highest of any piece of armor in BotW. Really? How is this a waste?

A person who has 100% botw and beaten ganon twice here. You DO get a reward. After beating the game, you get a nice memory in return. AND the champions tunic. So yeah, there's a reward, people.

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

18 Link showing almost no emotion

I find it quite funny when Link is emotionless in most situations, he looks like he doesn't care at all. But when he makes food, he's so happy for some reason and it confuses me. What really annoys me is that he doesn't talk.

Zelda will be pouring her heart out, dramatic music behind her, tearstained and all beat up and confessing her deepest secrets and Link will be sitting there like "Yeaaaaah so?" And Revali will be insulting him nonstop and he'll just be standing there like "Okay. So what?" Mipha will be obviously hinting at her deepest desire: a life by his side, and he'll be like "And...?" The only time he shows any emotion whatsoever is when he makes food.

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.

19 Thunderblight Ganon

I only beat him the first time w/ the master sword, and I had no idea that it happened to be the one weapon you will never drop after getting electrocuted. Pure luck.

He is super speedy, you have to time flurrying perfectly, and then starts raining down pillars, before electrocuting them and everything.

Literally took me a week to beat this bastard because I did Naboris second

20 Horse getting stuck

First time this happened I didn't know you could fix it by going to a stable, so I just stranded my horse there.

My sister had a problem with this when she was doing that horseback time trial at one of the stables.

21 Link Noises

Don't forget the noises the npcs make when you talk to them, the great fairies are so over the top with it. I heard someone in an apartment was getting sued by their neighbour for watching adult content, but they were just enhancing their clothing.

Most Annoying thing ever

22 Cooking

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

23 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.

24 Princess Mipha

Gross fish. LINK DOESN'T LIKE YOU get it through your empty head. No personality and THE most annoying voice in the game. (Yes Zelda's voice isn't great but Mipha is more grating in my opinion.) And she is mean to Sidon and tries to show off in front of Zelda. Pathetic.

She's so sweet and I love her she is so cute. I love that she has healing powers.she is my favorite champion not Uborsa.

25 Kass

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

I hate his annoying accordian Music. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Music is kinda annoying
