Ancient Powers,[1] also known as Right-Hand Abilities,[2] are abilities in Tears of the Kingdom.

Overview



Ancient Powers are abilities that originate from antiquity. Link first obtains Ancient Powers from Rauru's Spirit in the Shrines of Light atop the Great Sky Island, though these are only temporarily given. If Link leaves any of the Shrines of Light before making his way to their Statues of Rauru and Sonia and receiving the Lights of Blessing from within, he will not be able to use the Ancient Powers from their respective Shrines. Link can also inherit Zelda's Ancient Power by interacting with the vestige of her will at the Temple of Time. An additional Ancient Power, Autobuild, can be received by speaking to a Steward Construct at the Great Abandoned Central Mine.

Zelda and Sonia share the Recall Ancient Power due to their bloodline, though Zelda initially only awakens her power with the help of Rauru's Secret Stone. Sonia teaches Zelda how to harness the power of Recall through training after the latter is brought to the distant past after awakening her power. Additionally, Captain Constructs are capable of using the Fuse Ancient Power. Ancient Powers are channeled through Link's Right Arm when he uses them, though this is not a universal trait.
