Zelda Breath of the Wild Champions’ Ballad guide: Kihiro Moh shrine walkthrough and puzzle solutions (EX Champion Urbosa’s Song)

Inside the Box at the Yiga Clan Hideout

Jeffrey Parkin (he/him) has been writing video game guides for Polygon for almost seven years. He has learned to love just about every genre of game that exists.

In this The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide, we’ll show you how to find Kihiro Moh shrine in the Yiga Clan Hideout. You’ll need to find this shrine as part of the EX Champion Urbosa’s Song main story quest.

The Champions’ Ballad adds a new main story quest for you to take on after you’ve tamed all four Divine Beasts. The first stage of EX The Champions’ Ballad presents you with a new series of challenges on the Great Plateau. After that, you must complete a series of challenges for each of the Champions.

Finding the stone monument

To begin EX Champion Urbosa’s Song, you must find the stone monument with hints to the three trial locations. The monument’s location was marked on your map when the One-Hit Obliterator split apart.

The stone monument is in the high mountains on the far eastern edge of Hyrule’s southwestern desert in a location named East Gerudo Mesa. It’s to the east of Divine Beast Van Naboris and north of Suma Sahma shrine. It’s slightly easier and quicker (and downhill) to warp to Suma Sahma and then start trekking north. Shield surf past any enemies that pop up (or fight them if you want), then paraglide across the gap to land on the pillar where the stone monument sits.

The stone monument displays three satellite-looking images of the nearby area, and Kass’ song gives you hints about what you’ll be doing there. With a little detective work and your map (or just by looking at the image above), you’ll be able to find the approximate locations of your trials.

Throw the orb underground in Yiga Clan Hideout

Despite how simple Kass’ clue is, getting this shrine to reveal itself takes a bit of work. Warp to Kuh Takkar shrine in the Gerudo Highlands. Run, shield surf or paraglide southwest to the back door of the Yiga Clan Hideout. When you get there, you’ll meet Mils, who can give you a little context about what you’re doing.

Change into your stealthiest outfit (like the stealth set) or drink a stealth elixir, then head into the Yiga Hideout.

  1. Go into the back room, then out the door on the left wall.
  2. Follow the hallway around, but stop before you exit — there’s a henchman patrolling a path in front of you.
  3. Stick to the left wall and avoid the patrolling henchman by hiding behind the blocks. There’s another door in the wall once you’re past him.
  4. Follow the hall around to the right, then climb the ladder.
  5. At the end of the hall, pick up the mighty bananas and the orb.
  6. Retrace your steps — avoiding the same henchmen — until you’re outside again.
  7. Toss the orb into the bottomless pit to reveal the shrine.

Kihiro Moh shrine

  1. Run forward and use the motion-control console to spin the floating box. Your goal is to count how many of each color of orb are inside the box. Spin the box to look from different perspectives and try to keep track of each color. It’s … not easy.
  2. Once you have a count (or you can just read step four for the answer), place the colored orbs in the corresponding slots — the candles on the wall correspond to how many of each color.
  3. There are one red, two green, two yellow and four purple orbs. When you’ve placed all of the orbs in the correct positions, the gate will open.
  4. Before you go through the gate, use the motion control to spin the floating box back to neutral — with the darker face pointing down.
  5. Go through the gate, then use magnesis to slide the block on the bottom of the floating block to the side. All of the orbs will pour out. (If they don’t, go use the motion-control console to shake the box.)
  6. Three of the orbs that fall out are blank and made of metal. Use magnesis to carry these orbs off to the right. Place them in the three depressions to open the room holding the treasure chest.
  7. Open the chest for an attack up +15 thunderspear.
  8. Head back out and talk to the monk to claim your Naboris’ emblem.
