Barta is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[3][4]


Breath of the Wild

Barta is a Gerudo Soldier who protects Gerudo Town, wielding a Gerudo Spear. When Link first enters Gerudo Town, however, she will be absent.

If Link approaches Liana, Leena, or Kotta in the Barracks after speaking to Riju for the first time, Liana will ask where Barta is.[5] Leena explains that she went to the Yiga Clan Hideout two days ago and wonders what happened to her.[6] Angered, Liana asks why she let Barta go by herself,[7] which Leena apologizes for.[8] Liana is upset that they now have to retrieve both the Thunder Helm and Barta.[9] She expresses concern about Captain Teake finding out about it,[10] Kotta asks what they should do.[11] This causes Liana to yell that she is thinking about it.[12]

Link can find Barta imprisoned in a cell within the Yiga Clan Hideout. She is surprised that he has entered the Hideout, as they will call in reinforcements if they notice him.[13] Barta has only ever seen them patrol and eat Mighty Bananas, neither of which she can see a weakness in.[14] She tries to convince Link to leave, as she can take care of herself.[15]

After Link recovers the Thunder Helm, Barta returns to the Barracks in Gerudo Town and tells Liana how helpful Link was.[16] Barta will recognize Link from the Yiga Clan Hideout, explaining she was able to escape because they spread their forces thin looking for him.[17] If Link was not wearing the Gerudo Outfit when she saw him, she promises not to tell anyone that he is a voe.[18]

Barta disappears again after Link frees Divine Beast Vah Naboris. Speaking to the soldiers, Liana is shocked to find Barta has not come back.[19] Kotta explains that she went to investigate the Gerudo Great Skeleton,[20] and Leena claims she tried to stop her this time.[21] When Liana points out that this obviously did not work,[22] Leena and Kotta try to rationalize their decisions, saying everyone knows the area is dangerous and to avoid it.[23][24] This only angers Liana further, who remarks that Barta would not realize she was walking right into danger.[25] She wonders why Barta has to get in trouble all the time.[26] Witnessing this conversation activates "The Search for Barta" Side Quest.

Link will find Barta on the brink of death, kneeling on the ground in the Gerudo Desert near the Gerudo Great Skeleton.[27] Barta wishes she could have eaten a Hearty Durian one last time.[28] After Link gives her a Hearty Durian, Barta will stand up and thank Link for saving her life.[29] She laments heading out into the heat without the proper gear.[30] If Link is wearing the Gerudo Outfit, she notices he is not wearing the proper gear either and is amazed he made it out so far.[31] If Link is not wearing his disguise and Barta has not yet seen him without it, she will realize he is a man, mentioning that he seemed muscular for a Hylian woman.[32] Barta promises to keep it a secret, especially because Link saved her life.[33] At first, Barta is so tired that she wants to rest just a bit longer before she returns to Gerudo Town.[34][35] However, when Link informs her that Liana was furious, Barta realizes she is in trouble and decides to head back.[36]

Upon returning to the Barracks, Liana has heard that Link saved Barta.[37] Liana give Link a Silver Rupee as a reward,[38] completing the Side Quest. Afterwards, Barta tells Link that if he had not come along when he did, she would have died before meeting the voe of her dreams.[39] She wonders how things are going for Perda and mentions that she should go look for her special someone after everyone forgets how much trouble she is in.[40]
