Heat,(BotW | TotK)[1][2] also known as Extreme Heat,(BotW)[3] and Desert Heat,(HW)[4] is a recurring mechanic in The Legend of Zelda series.[name references needed]

Overview

Breath of the Wild

Heat occurs during the daytime in the Gerudo Desert. Heat can damage Link if he does not stay within shade, in a body of water, or if he does not have any Armor that provides Heat Resistance. Both Gerudo Town and Kara Kara Bazaar provide constant protection from Heat. The Rito traveler, Guy, can be found in the Kara Kara Bazaar, waiting for the daytime Heat to pass in order to visit Gerudo Town.[5] The Side Quest, "An Ice Guy", involves giving a Chilly Elixir to Guy so that he can cross the Desert.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

Desert Heat appears in the "Enduring Resolve" Scenario. Warriors caught within the Desert portion of Gerudo Desert will occasionally sustain minor damage from Desert Heat.[6] In order to curb the effects of the Desert Heat, the Hyrulean Forces must seize the North and South Oasis for the northern and southern portions of the Desert, respectively.[7][8]
