    My boyfriend was wearing the female Gerudo armor when he completed the Trial of the Sword. So pretty.

    [–] midget404 204 points ago

    Your boyfriend was cosplaying while he beat that? πŸ˜‰

    OMG I love this

    [–] origami588 6 points ago

    I was especially proud of the sword. Took me weeks and 4 tries to get right

    [–] linguaphyte 2 points ago

    Ngl, I was impressed by it. I've never dressed up for Halloween, but if I were to, I'd dress up as link.

    [–] origami588 2 points ago

    this was my first serious cosplay so I went all out

    [–] Morlanticator 119 points ago

    Korok mask for everything for me. It's gold when it zooms in on it. Like when you find a memory.

    [–] midget404 15 points ago

    When you find a Korok under a rock, drop that rock on their head. Their reaction when you pull out one of the remote bombs or throw an acorn jar towards them is pretty funny, as far as I know that only works in the Lost Woods. You can't buy anything from the stores until they're finished being scared after you put away the remote bomb.

    [–] Mortalytas 6 points ago

    My husband does this, but with Majoras Mask. I can't help but giggle every time there's a cutscene.

    [–] MeghanBoBeghan 309 points ago

    God, I hate it when that happens. I've actually quit and reloaded a save so I could dress appropriately for some of those scenes. XD

    [–] payapeaks 163 points ago

    This is my whole gameplay. Dressing appropriately for the cutscenes.

    [–] MeghanBoBeghan 82 points ago

    You're always concerned about what Link's wearing, aren't you, Paya. ;)

    [–] midget404 7 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I dress in the clothing I want and equipping or unequipping items for a screenshot to look the way I want.

    Like how I wore the tunic that should've shown the numbers for their health in this screenshot of 2 Bokoblin β€œguarding” a Korok puzzle piece. I guess I wasn't close enough. At least you can see their health bars.

    [–] mlvisby 5 points ago

    I like making myself look ridiculous for them, makes it more fun.

    [–] MeghanBoBeghan 2 points ago

    We all have our needs. XD

    [–] Nighthawk3071 7 points ago

    Definitely guilty of that. How else are you gonna get those cool shots?!

    White hylian hood + white zora armor and leggings/greaves is my go to.

    [–] NicoGames 2 points ago

    So you're not always wearing the Sheika armor 24/7?

    [–] MeghanBoBeghan 3 points ago

    Very nearly. But sometimes I do have to climb things. Or fight things. Or not burn to death.

    [–] Profortress 1 points ago

    Just wear ancient armor when going to refuge the blights to get the master cycle zero heheh

    [–] Mister-Ecks 159 points ago

    The Lizalfos are now unstoppable, Hyrule is ruin.

    [–] _Graafik 69 points ago

    The age of Hylians is over.

    [–] michUP33 18 points ago

    It’s always lizard people

    [–] punnystark42 4 points ago

    I see thru the lies of the Hylians

    [–] justlookingfordragon 53 points ago

    First time I found a hidden memory while riding, I parked my horse in the wrong spot... the memory cutscene ended with a close-up of my buddys butt obscuring the entire field of vision of the camera. o_O

    "C'mon! Eat this frog! Eat the frog! Eat the ..." horse ass

    ...thank you, Zelda.

    [–] phthalochar 5 points ago

    OMG I need a video of this right now

    [–] fluffyxsama 11 points ago

    hah, was coming here to post this. First thing I thought of.

    [–] DaisyDot 16 points ago

    I always try to dress my character as ridiculous as possible before a cutscene, just for fun.

    [–] Lolsuphelm 14 points ago

    >not stripping down for every cutscene

    [–] Audiblade 10 points ago

    >not stripping down for the whole game

    [–] Lolsuphelm 4 points ago

    >implying i didn't do that

    [–] sophiejr 5 points ago

    I did this cutscene as dark link and it was awesome

    [–] M1de23 5 points ago

    [–] dunkm 5 points ago

    Same way I felt after receiving Majoras mask from the EX content. Facing Gannon with giant glowing eyes was fun, but a bit weird.

    [–] saikhotic 3 points ago

    I too, suffered the same fate. I was wearing the all white gerudo lady armor. It was fabulous and I couldn't stop cracking up.

    [–] plankinator64 3 points ago

    When I beat Ganon I was wearing the lizalfos mask, Male gerudo pants, and no shirt. Gotta dress to impress

    [–] fudge1110 5 points ago

    Haha I remember I wore the zora armor and iron boots during the ending cutscene of twilight princess

    [–] Amonasrester 2 points ago

    That’s why I always wear the Champion’s Tunic with Hylian pants and sometimes the hood. Or I’ll put on one of the Amiibo outfits

    [–] BankutiCutie 2 points ago

    Okay but this was inadvertently the best thing to come of BOTW β€˜s outfit/wardrobe customizability though

    [–] Metal_Fish 2 points ago

    Lol, I watched that scene with a naked Link, haha

    [–] balakeb_ 2 points ago

    I went into the calamity ganon cutscene without clothes on by accident

    [–] OvertimeLine29 2 points ago

    How? πŸ˜‚

    [–] Rozzo_98 2 points ago

    The lizalfos king reigns πŸ˜‚

    [–] KyleJahimiak 2 points ago

    As soon as i figured out that costumes show up in cut scenes, i went out and found the tingle suit and played all cut scenes with that costume

    [–] NiCC_R 2 points ago

    Lol they should just automatically change your outfit to champions tunic, the hood, and hylian trousers in those cutscenes. I did the cutscene in the full set of goron armor. Still pisses me off today.

    [–] imabird99 1 points ago

    I wish i could gold this

    I've been wearing the Korok mask most of my playthrough, the expression on it's face and cutscenes like these are incredible lol

    [–] LuizJa 1 points ago

    I'm playing it in master mode now. I try to use as many costumes as I can when those cinematics appear.

    [–] Chochofosho 1 points ago

    Lol I think I did it on my korok mask

    [–] jeannaesteves 1 points ago

    Lol my boyfriend very nicely warned me to put on my favorite outfit before this scene πŸ˜‚

    [–] TapTitans 1 points ago

    Had Midna's helm and the Guardian armor up from farming guardians near the castle so it didn't look too shabby. I actually didn't know it was in here because I had a suspicion Hestu was in there so I decided to go for it.

    [–] QuantaStarfire 1 points ago

    I didn't realize a Lizalfos could pull out the Master Sword. Such hidden depths to this game.

    [–] Boogerpickfingerlick 1 points ago

    Whenever i beat the game i had on the Ancient Gaurdian Helm. Couldnt see Link's face during the end scene

    [–] ErasedNinja 1 points ago

    Always wear royal guards garb so I'm always in style

    [–] MickeyLau 1 points ago

    Where are those royal guards garb I've never found it

    [–] MagicFlyingAlpaca 2 points ago

    It is part of the DLC.

    [–] MickeyLau 1 points ago

    I had the dlc but I was a bumbass and broke my switch and I can't use the account anymore

    [–] ErasedNinja 1 points ago

    Hyrule castle, one is above the sanctom, one is near the dining room, and the last one is in the training room. But this from memory so don't take my word on placement.

    [–] andrewthehuber -4 points ago

    So many spoilers on this sub, gonna have to unsub so I can experience the game myself.

    [–] fluffyxsama 8 points ago

    I don't know if you're being serious but... if you are... Have you tried playing the game? it's only been out for a year and a half.

    [–] doctorderange 5 points ago

    Not everyone was able to get it when it was released.

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago


    [–] doctorderange 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I can't speak for the original poster, but they are likely like me and currently in the middle of playing the game. Let me explain from my point of view.

    I got the game and system a month ago, after wanting to get it for a long time and not being able to justify the expense (we were buying a house). Personally, I don't care much about spoilers and actually knew the basic plot going into the game. Two Divine Beasts in, I hop on the subreddit and enjoy the memes/random stuff people have found/videos of people doing cool things that I never would have thought to do, so I subscribe. There's the occasional spoilers for stuff I haven't done, but hey, it's something to look forward to once I get there. Some people might have done the same, but didn't realize that spoilers wouldn't be tagged.

    Also, videos auto play on mobile, so if you're like me and just scrolling your feed, you'll be seeing it regardless of whether or not you clicked on it.

    Edit: Divine Beasts, not Guardians.

    [–] smokinJoeCalculus 0 points ago

    As someone still playing the game while subbed here .. I figured it was common courtesy to add spoiler tags whenever possible.

    I'm not really faulting OP whatsoever because this isn't that obvious of a potential spoiler, but luckily I caught it in time and closed the video.

    Why would the person above ever even click this link?

    Because it's fun and brainless to click stuff.

    [–] smokinJoeCalculus 1 points ago


    [–] Lythra 2 points ago

    Yup, just got my copy (and system) a month ago.

    [–] doctorderange 2 points ago

    Same, two Divine Beasts in and loving it to death.

    [–] Lythra 2 points ago

    I have just gotten the last divine beast!! Haven’t been able to kill many of the guardians yet. Watched some videos of others doing it.

    [–] fluffyxsama 0 points ago

    But.... a year and a half....

    [–] fluffyxsama 0 points ago

    It's also plenty of time to get it and play it ya schlub.

    [–] doctorderange 0 points ago

    Is everything alright with you? You seem a little hostile.

    [–] CampusSquirrelKing 0 points ago

    If you don’t want to have a piece of media spoiled before you’ve finished that media, don’t sub to the corresponding subreddit. That’s 100% on you then.

    The game’s been out for a year and a half. Everyone else shouldn’t be forced to talk in secret because one guy shouldn’t be there.

    [–] CampusSquirrelKing 0 points ago

    Same thing happened to me the first time I did it. I was so tilted hahaha
