Breath of the Wild

Materials in Breath of the Wild can be found all throughout Hyrule, after defeating enemies, in Treasure Chests, or hunting for food. They cover a wide variety of items, and as such have a wide variety of uses. Materials can sometimes be eaten raw, but are best cooked together to create much more nourishing Food, that restore more hearts and have other positive effects. Each type of Material occupies its own slot. There is a maximum capacity of 999 Materials per slot.[3] Materials are also used to have the Great Fairies upgrade armor.

Materials can be sold for Rupees as well. The listed value is the price a merchant will pay Link for the item. Buying these items from most merchants will cost Link four times this value; Beedle will charge five times this value. Select materials may also be exchanged for Mon by Kilton.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, Materials are similar to Spoils and Treasures in that each Material is a unique Item possessed by the Enemy that dropped it. Materials are dropped by nearly every Enemy type except Cuccos and infantry soldiers, and only when the Enemy does not drop a Weapon Bag. They come in three rarities, with at most two rarities of item for each enemy type. The most common are Bronze Materials, which are the only item drops for the basic infantry Captains. Silver Materials are dropped by unique Captains, Warriors, and Giant Bosses. Rare Gold Materials are dropped only by Warriors and Giant Bosses. Enemies can be influenced to drop their rarer Materials by using Weapons with the "Material+" Skill, by creating a special Mixture in the Apothecary, or by activating the reward while using Focus Spirit.

Materials are primarily used to craft Badges for the playable Warriors, with each Badge having its own recipe of specific Materials. Materials can also be used to brew one-use elixirs by consuming a set amount of any Material of a given rarity.

Hyrule Warriors Legends

Materials in Hyrule Warriors Legends are primarily the same as those in Hyrule Warriors, with the addition of new Materials for Warriors who did not yield any in Hyrule Warriors, as well as for monsters and Warriors who exist exclusively in Hyrule Warriors Legends. Certain Warriors, such as Young Link and Twili Midna, also received their own set of Materials apart from their counterparts.

  • During development of Breath of the Wild, crabs were used to create elixirs; however, Nate Bihldorff, senior director of localization at Nintendo of America, convinced Hidemaro Fujibayashi, the game's director, to use them for cooking recipes instead.[4]

  4. "Nate had made it out to the beach, where he found some crab and a campfire with a pot at sunset. Feeling very pleased with himself, he threw some crab in the pot with some spicy peppers, only to find out crab wasn’t used for food recipes—it was for elixirs! This happened to fit perfectly with my own personal description of crustaceans as being “the insects of the sea,” but as an east coaster who grew up on crab, Nate wasn’t having it. He contacted Fujibayashi-san that night and began passionately explaining to the development team how much people like to eat crab, begging him to add crab dishes to the menu." — Bill Trinen, Now You’re Cooking with Power , Tumblr, published May 3, 2017, retrieved May 3, 2017.
