Muzu is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[4][name references needed]


Breath of the Wild

Muzu is one of the elders on the Zora council. He was also in charge of teaching Mipha, which lead to him being close to her.[5] Even before the Great Calamity, he harbored a disdain for Hylians.[6] Afterwards, his hatred grew, as he felt that they were responsible for the devastation caused by the Great Calamity and Mipha's death.[7]

When Divine Beast Vah Ruta began its rampage, the Zora came to the decision that they would need the help of a Hylian to shoot Shock Arrows at it.[8] To further this goal, Muzu was placed in charge of procuring Shock Arrows.[9]

When Link first enters the Throne Room of Zora's Domain, Muzu will watch him. He is silent until King Dorephan asks for Link's help in calming Divine Beast Vah Ruta,[10] citing disgust at the thought of receiving assistance from a Hylian.[11] Both King Dorephan and Sidon admonish him, with Sidon reminding Muzu that they already came to the conclusion that their only choice was to seek the aid of a Hylian.[12][8] In anger, Muzu reminds King Dorephan how the Hylians misused the Sheikah's Ancient Technology and caused the death of Mipha.[7]

Muzu once again protests when King Dorephan gifts the Zora Armor to Link.[13] He argues that it is too important to give to a Hylian, since it is tradition for Zora princesses to present this Armor to those they are engaged to.[14] Though Link is a Champion, Muzu believes that he did not have a romantic relationship with Mipha.[15] In frustration, Muzu storms out of the Throne Room, still unable to understand King Dorephan's reasoning.[16] With Muzu gone, King Dorephan is unsure how they should proceed, since he was in charge of gathering the Shock Arrows for their plan.[9] Sidon decides to resolve their issues with Muzu, running after him to the Zora's Domain Square.[17] King Dorephan asks Link to join them, as he believes he may be able to assist Sidon.[18] After this encounter, the "Divine Beast Vah Ruta" Main Quest will begin.

Sidon and Muzu can be found arguing in front of Mipha's Statue in the Zora's Domain Square.[19][20] When Link approaches, Muzu remarks that he came for nothing, as he does not wish to speak with him.[21] Sidon then explains to Muzu that Link was the one who Mipha was in love with.[22] However, Muzu vehemently resists the notion, stating that Mipha could not have fallen in love with a Hylian.[23] He states that his position is clear, since Link does not remember Mipha even when looking at her Statue.[24] His words cause Link to look up at Mipha's Statue, which unlocks the "Mipha's Touch" Recovered Memory.

After the Recovered Memory, Muzu notices that Link is shaking and asks what is wrong.[25] When Link claims to remember Mipha, Muzu refuses to believe him, noting how convenient his timing is.[26] He demands that Link show him proof of his relationship with Mipha, promising to share the location of the Shock Arrows if he is able to do so.[27] When Link equips the Zora Armor, Sidon will tell Muzu to look at what he is wearing.[28] Upon seeing that the Zora Armor fits him perfectly, Muzu is initially confused.[29] Sidon explains that the fact that it fits Link is proof that it was intended for him.[30] He claims that the reason Mipha never told him was due to his hatred of Hylians.[6]

Muzu is shocked that Mipha would have feelings for Link.[31] He takes a moment to silently gaze up at Mipha's Statue.[32] Though he dislikes it, he recognizes that their only choice is to accept Link's help in saving Zora's Domain.[33] As such, he decides to tell Link where he can find Shock Arrows.[34] He points towards Ploymus Mountain, explaining that on Shatterback Point, there is a Monster that shoots Shock Arrows.[35] Sidon realizes that he is referring to the Lynel, claiming that it would be a quick way to gather Shock Arrows.[36] Muzu estimates that Link will need at least 20 Shock Arrows in order to face Divine Beast Vah Ruta.[37]

If Link speaks to Muzu again, he repeats that the Shock Arrows can be obtained from the territory of the Lynel on Ploymus Mountain.[38] However, he warns Link that if he goes there, he cannot guarantee his survival.[39]

When Link returns to the Throne Room after appeasing Divine Beast Vah Ruta, the residents of Zora's Domain gather to show their appreciation. During this time, Muzu apologizes for his behavior and acknowledges Link's noble intentions, claiming that all of the Zora are grateful for his help.[40] He concedes that the older generation of Zora misunderstood Hylians.[41] Muzu hopes that Link will be able to forgive him one day.[42]

After "Divine Beast Vah Ruta has been completed, Muzu can be found on the northern bridge from Zora's Domain. He again claims that he misunderstood Hylians, as even without fins and gills, Link was able to stop Divine Beast Vah Ruta.[43] He states that he should have expected such from the one who Mipha loved, congratulating him for his work.[44] Muzu wishes that Link will find it in his heart to forgive him.[45]

During the "EX Champion Mipha's Song" Main Quest, which is exclusive to The Champions' Ballad DLC Pack, Muzu and Tottika appear on a cliff in the Akkala Highlands, overlooking the gap between Ankel Island and Tingel Island. When Link speaks to him, Muzu reveals that they have been sent to watch over the site of one of Mipha's Trials, as the signs from when she first attempted them have now returned.[46] He recounts a note that Mipha kept, which states that the path to the Trial is revealed as the sun rises.[47] Mipha would also repeat these words about her Trial.[48]

Once Link causes Kee Dafunia Shrine to rise from the Lanayru Sea, Muzu will be impressed that Link was able to figure out Mipha's riddle.[49] He believes that this must have been the reason that Mipha fell in love with Link.[50] Now that the Trial has been completed, Muzu orders Tottika to prepare for their trip back to Zora's Domain.[51]

After "EX Champion Mipha's Song" has been completed, Muzu will be commend Link for overcoming the same Trial that Mipha did.[52] He understands how Link was able to win Mipha's affection, and he states that he is impressed.[53]

  22. "Listen well, Muzu. There is something you need to know. He who stands here...the man called the one whom my sister, Mipha, had feelings for. I was only a child then, so I did not know it myself at the time. But it is so. I grew up hearing my father tell stories, some of which were about my sister's undying love for a Hylian named Link." — Sidon (Breath of the Wild)
  23. "What?! No... You cannot fool me with such a fanciful lie. Not this Zora! How could Lady Mipha possibly have feelings for a Hylian like him?!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  24. "The facts are clear. He remembers nothing. Even when he looks upon Princess Mipha's statue..." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  25. "Hm? You are quivering like a hatchling... Whatever is the matter?" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  26. "[Mipha... I remember.] WHAT?! Do not mistake me for a fool, Hylian! There is no way you remembered her just now, when it is most convenient!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  27. "In any case, without any solid proof, I cannot possibly take you at your word! If you have any such proof, now is the time to show it. Do so, and...and I...I shall tell you how to get those shock arrows! Yes, as well as anything else you wish to know." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  28. "Muzu! Look closely at the clothes Link is wearing!" — Sidon (Breath of the Wild)
  29. "Hm? You really think changing your clothes is going to make me... Eh?! What in the... That is the Zora armor from before! Lady Mipha made that by hand... and yet it fits you perfectly! What is the meaning of this?!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  30. "Now you understand, do you not? Now you know who her heart belonged to and who she made this special armor for. The fact that this armor fits Link perfectly should be proof enough that Mipha made it for him and him alone!" — Sidon (Breath of the Wild)
  31. "Hmph. I never would have imagined she would make that special armor for one such as he..." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  32. "..." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  33. "I do not approve of asking for help from a Hylian, but I suppose it is out only option at this point." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  34. "I am a proud Zora. That means I must take responsibility for my unwarranted behavior toward you. As promised, I shall tell you where you can collect as many shock arrows as you will need." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  35. "That tall mountain over yonger... It is called Ploymus Mountain, and there you will also find Shatterback Point. A terrifying creature has made its home up there. This awful beast shoots volley after volley of shock arrows. Even a single one could be fatal to Zora." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  36. "Aha! You must mean that Lynel! He is a man-beast, that one! That beast does indeed wield shock arrows. That is certainly one way to collect them quickly." — Sidon (Breath of the Wild)
  37. "In order to appease the Divine Beast, I estimate that you will need...hmm... at least 20 shock arrows. Do you think you can gather that many?" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  38. "If you want shock arrows, you should go to Ploymus Mountain. There resides a vicious beast there... A Lynel that is known to frequently shoot shock arrows." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  39. "Though be warned... If you go, I cannot guarantee you will survive." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  40. "Link... I must sincerely apologize for my harsh treatment of you. That whole time, you were thinking of Hyrule's and Lady Mipha's well-being, just like the rest of us. All of the members of our council humbly fold our fins back in gratitude, along with the rest of our people." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  41. "Perhaps the older generation of Zora, myself included, misunderstood Hylians after all. It would seem so." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  42. "That said, I would be overjoyed if you could find it in your heart to forgive me. If not now, then perhaps one day." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  43. "Oh! Link! It would seem I misunderstood Hylians before... You don't have any fins or gills, yet you still manages to stop the Divine Beast..." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  44. "I should have expected as much from Lady Mipha's beloved. Well done." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  45. "I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive an incompetent fool such as me!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  46. "Ah! It is you, Link. What brings you to this place? We are here at the behest of Prince Sidon, who tasked us with keeping watch on this area. This is the land where Princess Mipha completed her sacred trial. Now, the signs that appeared 100 years ago have returned..." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  47. "Princess Mipha's notes had this phrase... "While the morning sun is nearly born, follow the path of light to the trial."" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  48. "I am not sure where they came from, but she often repeated those mysterious words about the trial..." — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  49. "Could it be? Have you already figured out Mipha's riddle? The path of light... Ah! The sun’s reflection upon the sea!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  50. "I cannot believe you solved it so readily! It is ever more apparent why you are the one who stole Princess Mipha's heart. I am thoroughly impressed!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  51. "Sir Muzu said to pack up and prepare to return home." — Tottika (Breath of the Wild)
  52. "Somehow, you managed to complete the same trial as Princess Mipha!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
  53. "It is no wonder our princess has a special place in her heart for you. I am thoroughly impressed!" — Muzu (Breath of the Wild)
