North Hyrule Plain is a recurring location in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

North Hyrule Plain is located in the northwestern corner of Hyrule Field, directly bordered by the Breach of Demise to the south. The Hilltop High Road also runs along its western side. The Royal Ancient Lab Ruins can be found on the Plain.

There are a total of two Korok Seed Puzzles on North Hyrule Plain. The first can be solved by rolling a Boulder down into a hole in the southeastern area of the Plain. The second is a Cube Pattern on the Plain's east side. Once each of these Puzzles have been solved, a Korok will appear and give Link a Korok Seed.[3]

As in Breath of the Wild, the North Hyrule Plain is located in Hyrule Field. To the north it borders Salari Hill and Irch Plain, and to the west and south it borders Lindor's Brow, Ludfo's Bog and the Breach of Demise. To its east sit the Regencia River and Carok Bridge. Following the Upheaval, a Geoglyph has appeared in the Plain.[4] Fallen Debris now litter the landscape as well, and a lone Fallen Ruin has fallen in the Geoglyph's path. The Sinakawak Shrine and North Hyrule Plain Cave also appeared after the Upheaval. At some point, the Serenne Stable moved south to North Hyrule Plain after a new road was built west of Carok Bridge, adopting the name of New Serenne Stable in the process.[5]

A Battle Talus has planted itself beside the road atop the hill west of the Royal Ancient Lab Ruins in the Plain. North of the Royal Ancient Lab Ruins, the Plain features a wetland biome. An unmarked stone road leads north from the Ruins into this biome. There is a Monster Outpost here with a lit Cooking Pot. Beside the largest pond of water, there is a Busted Wagon that can be searched for Materials.

In order to uncover clues about the missing Zelda's location, Impa and Cado traveled here to investigate the newly-formed Geoglyph.[4] To view the Geoglyph as a whole, Impa borrowed a Balloon from Purah.[6] However, a strong wind tore her contraption apart as she took to the air and she was left with no means to repair it.[7]

As part of the "Impa and the Geoglyphs" Main Quest, Link can help her reassemble her aircraft with the Ancient Power Ultrahand. Upon Link doing so, Impa will thank him and offer a ride in the aircraft to view the Geoglyph.[8] When a Fire is lit inside the contraption, Impa and Link will fly into the Sky above the Geoglyph.[9] Despite feeling a sense of vertigo,[10] Impa recounts Kakariko Village's written records related to the Geoglyph and Dragon's Tears.[11] She asks for Link's help with investigating what the Dragon's Tears are and suggests using their vantage point to identify it.[12]

This Dragon's Tear can be found in the left eye of the Geogylph. When it is examined, Link's Recall Ancient Power activates and the Dragon's Tear rises into the air and shows Link the "Where Am I?" Memory. After Link views this Memory, Impa appears beside him and asks him of what he saw. Upon hearing the details of the Memory, she muses that they must all be related to Zelda's disappearance.[13] She then invites him to the Forgotten Temple in Tanagar Canyon where they may find out more information, beginning the Main Quest "The Dragon's Tears".[14]

  4. 4.0 4.1 "What? She still has yet to return? In that case, we must use all available means to search for her. Link, when Princess Zelda went missing, something else happened all over Hyrule. During the Upheaval, huge pictures appeared out of nowhere, images that sprawled across fields and hills. We are calling them geoglyphs. I understand they have been found in locations across the kingdom. Cado and I are traveling from region to region in hopes of seeing them all." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  5. "Let's see... Right around now, he should be canvassing New Serenne Stable. It's a place out to the east, past the Skyview Tower. It used to be somewhere else, but after the new road was built, the place moved to the new location. Seems like it was the right move—business is booming there! I'm not sure if that's why he headed out there though. All he said was "The little birds are calling!" Then he took off with a big grin on his face." — Traysi (Tears of the Kingdom)
  6. "I noticed this geoglyph from a distance while I was standing on high ground. Examining it up close, I could not make out what it depicted. I thought I might have a better view from up in the sky. I took to the air in the balloon Purah gave me, but then, alas..." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  7. "The wind struck and completely sheared the balloon off the base." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "I have racked my brain for ways to reattach the two parts, to no avail." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  8. "Oh! You fixed my balloon? Thank you, Link! Will you come with me to look at the geoglyph, then?" — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  9. "[Sure!] Time to head out, then. Ah...I nearly forgot. Would you mind doing one final thing for me?" — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Light a fire there and the balloon will start to float. Then we can be on our way." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)

  11. "But finally we can see it. The geoglyph! Well done, Link. You know, I read something in the village's old literature—a passage about what the ancients called Dragon's Tears. "Where the Tears rest upon the earth, we marked down the images to which they gave birth."" — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  12. "I believe this geoglyph is one such "image." But even from this vantage, its meaning is no clearer to me. Nor can I figure out what "Dragon's Tears" might be. But you know...if the literature is correct, one of them should be quite close—near the geoglyph, or even within its borders. Would you look around? This could be the clue we need to discover Princess Zelda's whereabouts." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  13. "Link? You look distracted. What's wrong?" — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "Goodness! You say you had a vision? Saw mysterious figures?" — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "And then Princess Zelda?! Hmm... The geoglyphs, the literature, the Dragon's Tears...and now, a vision of the lost princess." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
    "What if these are all connected?" — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
  14. "Let us continue to examine the geoglyphs. They may contain further clues that lead to Princess Zelda. You know, according to the literature, there is something to do with geoglyphs in the Forgotten Temple. The Forgotten Temple lies at the bottom of a canyon in Hebra. I think we should make our way there soon." — Impa (Tears of the Kingdom)
