The Kema Kosassa Shrine,[1] designated by the Trial name A Major Test of Strength,[1] is an Ancient Shrine in Breath of the Wild.

Entrance to the Shrine

Kema Kosassa Shrine is located on the Risoka Snowfield in the Gerudo Highlands. As Link enters the Ancient Shrine, he is greeted by its Monk, Kema Kosassa.[2]

Themes and Navigation

Kema Kosassa Shrine features a large primary chamber, which is covered in a thin layer of Water. When Link enters this chamber, a Guardian Scout IV rises from a pit in its center. In order to complete the Trial, Link must defeat this Guardian Scout.

Once it is defeated, the portcullis in the back of the room will rise, allowing Link to access the Monk's Pedestal. When approached, Kema Kosassa will give Link a Spirit Orb for completing the Trial.[3] Afterwards, the Monk will wish Link well before fading away.[4]

Behind the portcullis is a stone Treasure Chest. Inside, Link can find a Silver Rupee.
