"Calcium deposits in the scales of this ancient fish make them as hard as armor. Cooking it into a dish will fortify your bones, temporarily increasing your defense."
The Armored Carp (057 in the Hyrule Compendium) is a type of fish and common material found in Breath of the Wild. They can typically be found in bodies of water around Hyrule such as the Lanayru Great Spring or East Necluda. They can be sold to shop-vendors all over Hyrule for 10 Rupees each.
The Armored Carp will restore one heart when eaten. If cooked on an open flame, Link will obtain a Roasted Carp, which restores 1½ hearts and can be sold for 15 rupees. If dropped on the ground in extremely snowy climates, Link will obtain a Frozen Carp, which restores one heart and provides a temporary boost to heat resistance for one minute. It can be sold for 18 rupees. The Armored Carp can be used in a variety of recipes, and the resultant meal will provide a defense-boosting effect.
