If you own a Nintendo Switch, chances are you've played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo's latest groundbreaking entry in the classic series and one of the best games on the system. Since its release, the game has garnered constant praise from fans and critics alike. Plus, it has spawned tons of amiibo. All of these Legend of Zelda amiibo are compatible with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and offer bonuses like rupees, resources, and even exclusive weapons, armor, and outfits. Some have become harder to find, so be careful when you buy them.
Editor's note: Some of the amiibo you see in this list are no longer in circulation and will be more difficult to track down and more expensive than the standard retail pricing for one of these amiibo figures. You can also use used or imported amiibo. They are not region-locked.
Unleash the beast
Wolf Link is what Link becomes when he's traveling through the Twilight realm. With Midna on his back, Wolf Link trades a sword for a snarling bite. When scanned, Wolf Link is summoned in-game and can fight alongside Link. He can even help with scavenging for food and searching for shrines.
Who shot first?
This amiibo represents the most recent version of Link. Here he is frozen in mid-air, aiming a bow and arrow at an unsuspecting foe.
A boy and his steed
This version of Link is wearing a hood while riding a rearing steed. Scanning this amiibo unlocks the Traveler's Saddle and Traveler's Bridle.
The legend herself
This amiibo represents Zelda as she's seen in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This version of Zelda is less interested in princess business and more interested in getting her hands dirty with research.
A common foe
Bokoblin's are a common enemy you'll encounter while playing Breath of the Wild. While they come in different shades and sizes, this red guy is the first you'll encounter. He's kind of cute in this little loincloth!
This amiibo is of a Guardian Stalker, an ancient machine created by the Sheikah. Initially created to combat Calamity Ganon, they've since fallen under his control. You don't want to get into a fight with this thing unless you're well equipped.
Don't get too cocky
That ain't Falco; that's Rito Champion Revali. While stuck up and rude, he is one of Link's strongest allies. Scanning Revali will unlock the Vah Medoh Divine Helm.
The princess of the Zora
Soft-spoken and shy, The Zora Champion Mipha juxtaposes her personality by wielding a mighty trident. Scanning her unlocks the Vah Medoh Divine Helm.
Know your place
Tall, tan, and sporting a set of washboard abs, we can all agree that Gerudo Champion Urbosa is the best girl, right? Even finer than her amiibo is the Vah Naboris Divine Helm, which can only be unlocked by scanning her amiibo.
Stay calm and eat rocks
Jolly and good-natured, the rock-eating Goron Champion Daruk unlocks the Vah Rudania Divine Helm when scanned. His amiibo is quite a handful!
A link to the past
This version of Link was first introduced in 1986 with the release of The Legend of Zelda. This amiibo captures Link in all of his 8-bit glory and unlocks Link's tunic from the original game.
The Hero of Wind
The once infamous, now beloved version of Link is sporting the cel-shaded anime look that first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. Scanning this amiibo will unlock Link's Wind Waker attire and the Sea-Breeze Boomerang.
Heir to a forgotten kingdom
Unknowingly disguised as the swashbuckling pirate, Tetra, this version of Zelda is the pluckiest she's ever been. Scanning Toon Zelda will unlock the Hero's Sheild.
The Hero of Time
This version of Link hails from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, often cited as one of the greatest games ever made. Scanning this amiibo will unlock the Tunic of Time. The Biggoron's Sword also unlocks once you complete the main quest.
The Hero of Twilight
This version of Link hails from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the most popular entry in The Legend of Zelda series until Breath of the Wild came around. Scanning this Link will unlock the Twilight tunic, as well as Link's trusty steed, Epona.
Epona of the skies
This is the latest Zelda amiibo to release and depicts Zelda and her loftwing as they appear in Skyward Sword HD. It's unclear what functions, if any, they perform in Breath of the Wild, but we'll update when we learn more. It sells out quickly, so grab it if you see it in stock.
The Hero of Sky
The Hero of the Sky is chronologically the oldest Link in the batch, not that timelines mean much in The Legend of Zelda. This version of Link is from Skyward Sword and will unlock the Sky tunic and the Goddess Sword.
You've met with a terrible fate
Once just a boy without a fairy, this version of Link has all the experience of the Hero of Time in half the body. Scanning this amiibo will unlock the Fierce Deity outfit for Link, as well as the Fierce Deity sword.
Ready to brawl
In addition to kart racing and crossbow training, Link is a featured fighter in Super Smash Bros. This amiibo depicts Link as he appeared in Twilight Princess, and scanning him will unlock everything the other Twilight Princess Link offers.
This princess will fight
Zelda may not be the best physical fighter, but she has proven that she can stand her ground thanks to her powerful magic. This amiibo depicts the version of Zelda found in Twilight Princess. Scanning her will unlock the Twilight Bow once the main quest has been completed.
Like a shadow
Though the fan-favorite persona of Princess Zelda has not made an appearance in a mainline game since Ocarina of Time, Sheik has remained a staple of Super Smash Bros. Scanning Sheik will unlock Sheik's Mask.
The evil king
Ganon has taken many forms over the years, from giant pig beast monster to cunning royal. The Super Smash Bros amiibo is based on his appearance in Twilight Princess. Scanning him will unlock the Sword of Six Sages once the main quest is completed.
Light and breezy
Since his inclusion in Super Smash Bros Brawl, Toon Link has remained a mainstay of Super Smash Bros. Scanning him will net you the same rewards as the other Toon Link amiibo.
Courage, wisdom, power, amiibo
The Legend of Zelda amiibo not only look good, but they also offer in-game bonuses, and sometimes, exclusive items. They also work across many other amiibo-compatible games across the Switch, WiiU, and even the New 3Ds. The Zelda amiibo will offer unique bonuses in Zelda titles like Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, so be sure to use them when you can.
If you're wondering which amiibo to start with, you can't go wrong with Wolf Link. It's the most useful amiibo, offering an additional character that'll help you on your journey by fighting enemies, searching for shrines, and even help hunt wildlife.
The 8-bit Link is also a great choice. It's a great-looking collector's item and offers Link's classic tunic, which is as close to the original as it gets.
Young Link from Majora's Mask is also a rock-solid choice. As well as representing a fan-favorite game, scanning Young Link unlocks the Fierce Deity sword and tunic for Link. It's also one of Link's coolest-looking outfits. Just make sure you're scanning the right Young Link.
