There’s a lot to possibly get. So to help provide more insight into them, here are some to consider scanning for certain items.

With amiibo ranging from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Link to 8-Bit Link and Skyward Sword‘s Zelda & Loftwing, there’s a wealth of unlockables for every Tears of the Kingdom. Here’s what I’d recommend scanning your Zelda amiibo to get:

  • Cap of the Hero (8-Bit Link amiibo)
  • Cap of Time (Ocarina of Time Link amiibo)
  • Epona horse mount (Twilight Princess Link amiibo, Super Smash Bros. Link amiibo)
  • Fierce Deity Sword (Majora’s Mask Link amiibo)
  • Fierce Deity Mask (Majora’s Mask Link amiibo)
  • Fierce Deity Armor (Majora’s Mask Link amiibo)
  • Fierce Deity Boots (Majora’s Mask Link amiibo)
  • King of Red Lions Paraglider Fabric (Wind Waker Link amiibo, Super Smash Bros. Toon Link amiibo)
  • Majora’s Mask Paraglider Fabric (Majora’s Mask Link amiibo)
  • Mask of Awakening (Link’s Awakening Link amiibo)
  • Mirror of Twilight Paraglider Fabric (Twilight Princess Link amiibo, Super Smash Bros. Link amiibo)
  • Sea-Breeze Shield (Wind Waker Zelda amiibo)
  • Sea-Breeze Boomerang (Wind Waker Link amiibo, Super Smash Bros. Toon Link amiibo)
  • Sheik Paraglider Fabric (Super Smash Bros. Sheik amiibo)
  • Sheik’s Mask (Super Smash Bros. Sheik amiibo)
  • Sword of the Hero (8-Bit Link amiibo)
  • Trousers of Awakening (Link’s Awakening Link amiibo)
  • Trousers of the Hero (8-Bit Link amiibo)
  • Trousers of Time (Ocarina of Time Link amiibo)
  • Tunic of Awakening (Link’s Awakening Link amiibo)
  • Tunic of the Hero (8-Bit Link amiibo)
  • Tunic of Time (Ocarina of Time Link amiibo)
  • Vah Rudania Divine Helm (Breath of the Wild Daruk amiibo)
  • Vah Ruta Divine Helm (Breath of the Wild Mipha amiibo)
  • Vah Medoh Divine Helm (Breath of the Wild Revali amiibo)
  • Vah Naboris Divine Helm (Breath of the Wild Urbosa amiibo)

Note that you can only scan one of each amiibo daily. You’re not guaranteed to get the item you want every time you scan. So it may take a while, but it could be worth it.

My favorite item obtained via Zelda amiibo is the Mirror of Twilight Fabric, because it looks amazing on the Glider and glows at night. The Awakening set also gives me a good chuckle every time I see it, because when Link puts it on, he looks like he’s stepped straight out of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on Nintendo Switch. It looks so goofy, but it’s so good.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. If you unlocked a new Paraglider Fabric from your amiibo, here’s how to put it on.
