One of the most satisfying things you can do in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is take down a Lynel, a super powerful, centaur-looking enemy who can resist almost any attack. Tons of players have made it a point to defeat these creatures when they run into them — and some especially ambitious ones are taking the Lynel they reach into with some impressive means.
Here’s DeliciousTea Gaming fighting a Lynel with a Link who’s under extreme duress. The poor Hylian doesn’t have a single piece of clothing, and he’s only got three hearts to his name. His weapon of choice? A rock.
Somehow, Link emerges victorious. Turns out that boulder is a pretty sweet weapon.
For something a little more savory, check out this fight where Link uses an arsenal of arrows, a pot lid and a soup ladle to beat the beast. At least he has a shield this time?
Lunisequious Solivagant’s fight against a Lynel is a little more conventional, except for the fact that it lasts a total of 20 seconds. A decked-out, club-wielding Link beats the Lynel to death and doesn’t take a drop of damage.
Over on Jimmyqballs’ YouTube page, there’s a whole series of wild Lynel challenges, including one where he defeats the enemy with a horse. That’s what we call a trusty steed, for real.
It’s no surprise that one of his most popular videos is an in-depth strategy guide on how to take down any Lynel you see.
If you’re brave enough — and looking for something new to do in Breath of the Wild — these challenges may be a good way to shake things up.
