The new trailer for Tears of the Kingdom has been a huge hit! Content creators across the world have been making articles and videos speculating about the potential lore implications of the trailer and broadcasting their reactions to the video. One of the things I am most excited about for the upcoming Tears of the Kingdom is the game potentially having a more diverse roster of enemies than its predecessor. One of my criticisms of Breath of the Wild is the relatively small cast of enemies to fight. Besides the overworld bosses and Blights, players only really had different variations of Bokoblins, Lizalfos, Moblins, Chuchus, Wizzrobes, and Keese to fight.

Keeping with the idea of expanding the roster of enemies for Tears of the Kingdom, this thoughtful video by Zeltik reimagines some classic Zelda enemies and bosses for a potential return in the next Zelda game. In the video, Zeltik discusses a variety of classic enemies including the Helmaroc King (from The Wind Waker), Aquamentus (from The Legend of Zelda), Bubbles, Wallmasters, and the Nejirons (from Majora’s Mask). Wallmasters and Bubbles are both classic enemies that have not been featured in Zelda games in over a decade, so it would be great to see those creatures makes a triumphant return. Nejirons, who resemble the Gorons in many ways, have only ever been featured in one game, and it would be interesting to see these creatures redesigned for Tears of the Kingdom.

Overall, I found this video to be very entertaining and thought-provoking. Not only did Zeltik show off artwork for what the creatures would potentially look like, they also provided descriptions/lore to go along with the creatures. I would love to see some of the bosses like Helmaroc King and Aquamentus receive their own dedicated questlines. Having special one-off boss fights would be an unexpected treat for players who are willing to put in the time and effort to finish some of the longer quests littered across Hyrule. I was hooked by Zeltik’s description of a hypothetical Aquamentus fight in the foggy Korok Forest.

If you enjoy this video, Zeltik previously posted a video that covers another set of Zelda enemies including Darknuts, ReDeads, and Skulltulas. Hopefully, the content creator will make a few more videos reimagining classic Zelda enemies, because there are many worthy candidates to discuss!
