Rejoice, for Tears of the Kingdom has arrived! Much like Breath of the Wild, TotK offers a treasure trove of classic costumes and weapons that can be unlocked through the magic of amiibo. Check out all the amazing costumes we’ve uncovered so far, and be sure to return as we continue our journey of discovery, unearthing even more awe-inspiring surprises in the hours and days ahead.
Ocarina of Time (Hero of Time)
The Hero of Time armor consists of three items: the Cap of Time, Tunic of Time, and Trousers of Time. Each of these are randomly dropped when you scan in the 30th Anniversary Ocarina of Time Link amiibo in the game. Each amiibo can only be scanned in once a day, so it may take some time to acquire the entire set.
Twilight Princess (Hero of Twilight)
The Hero of Twilight armor consists of three items: the Cap of Twilight, Tunic of Twilight and the Trousers of Twilight. Each can be randomly dropped in a chest when you scan in the Super Smash Bros. Link amiibo or the 30th Anniversary Twilight Princess Link amiibo. Each amiibo can only be scanned in one time every day, so it may take some time to get the entire set.
Wind Waker (Hero of the Wind)
The Hero of Wind armor consists of three items: the Cap of the Wind, Tunic of the Wind, and Trousers of the Wind. These can be randomly dropped by scanning in either the 30th Anniversary Wind Waker Link or Super Smash Bros. Toon Link amiibo. For added authenticity, you can also randomly receive the Sea-Breeze Boomerang from these amiibo. Scanning in the Wind Waker Zelda amiibo can give you a shot at getting the Hero’s Shield from Wind Waker, too!
Link’s Awakening (Awakening Set)
Probably my favorite new addition to Tears of the Kingdom is the Link’s Awakening inspired armor set. Not only are you getting a new tunic and pair of trousers, but this set also includes a comically-large Link’s Awakening mascot head. If you want to unlock all of these goodies, you will need a Link’s Awakening amiibo and a bit of luck!
Skyward Sword (Hero of the Sky)
The Skyward Sword-themed clothing set can help you feel like a true warrior of the Skyloft Knight Academy. This set consists of three items as well: the Tunic of the Sky, Cap of the Sky, and Trousers of the Sky. This armor set can be obtained in pieces by scanning the Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Link Skyward Sword amiibo for random treasure chest drops. Each amiibo can only be scanned in one time every day, so it may take some time to get the entire set.
The Legend of Zelda (Hero’s Set)
The Hero’s Set contains retro clothing from the original Legend of Zelda and, once again, includes three items: the Cap of the Hero, Tunic of the Hero, and Trousers of the Hero. These can be randomly dropped by scanning in the 30th Anniversary 8-Bit Link amiibo into the game. You can also unlock a sword from the original Legend of Zelda through the same means.
Fierce Deity Link
The Fierce Deity costume set consists of three items: the Fierce Deity Mask, Fierce Deity Armor, and Fierce Deity Boots. The Fierce Deity Sword is also available to complete the whole look!
To get this awesome costume set, all you have to do is scan the Link Majora’s Mask amiibo from the Legend of Zelda: 30th Anniversary series for random treasure chest drops. Each amiibo can only be scanned in one time each day, so it may take some time to get the entire set.
While not technically a classic Link costume, the Sheik costume is still an excellent throwback to Ocarina of Time. In order to obtain this outfit, you will need to scan a Sheik amiibo. The Sheik amiibo has the rare possibility to drop the Sheik Mask. When combined with the items from Kakariko Village, you have a fully functional Sheik outfit!
