Stone Talus might be a formidable opponent in The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild, but players have managed to do just that with Link’s Master Cycle Zero. When Breath of the Wild first came out, it took the world by storm at the same time as the Nintendo Switch launch, completely changing the typical structure of standard Zelda games. In Hyrule of Breath of the Wild, players not only found familiar enemies in previous games, but also met various new creatures that had never been seen before.
Shortly after launch, the game’s DLC was released, and gamers got a ton of new content to play through the Master Trials and Champion’s Ballad expansion packs. After completing the latter and taking down Monk Maz Koshia, the player gains control of the Master Cycle Zero – a speedy vehicle summoned by the Sheikah Slate rune mechanic. When the car was first introduced, fans had a great time and shared all kinds of incredible stunts with the community.
Twitter user aquatic_ambi even managed to beat Stone Talus using Master Cycle Zero – an impressive feat to say the least. In Breath of the Wild, in order to damage this mini-boss, the player must climb on its back and hit the stone distance deposit above it. This can be very difficult as the stone distance is constantly moving and will occasionally step on the floor and throw the player off. In the clip, the fan drives up to the monster, uses the jump option to jump onto its arm, and propels Link to successfully reach the deposit and hit it with the front of the bike.
In the comments section, other users mentioned how unnecessary this is, but it’s nice to know it’s possible. In The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild, weapons have a durability meter, which is just one example of how fans keep them intact.
Motorcycle Rune is certainly beloved by Zelda fans, and with the game’s sequel on the horizon, many players can’t help but wonder if Master Zero will return in Tears of the Kingdom. It seems like the upcoming Zelda game will have plenty of mobility options, but beyond horses and player-made contraptions, it’s unknown whether the legendary hero will be able to ride the well-deserved prize again.
The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild is available on Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
