The Baton is one of Zelda's weapons in Hyrule Warriors. It is unlocked in Adventure Mode by clearing grid D12? as Zelda after revealing its secret by using a Candle on the third tree from the top on the left side of the long vertical path. In The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, this item was able to control winds, along with completing various musical tasks throughout the game. In Hyrule Warriors, however, it is a weapon. It is very powerful and holds enemies in a sort of wind cage while delivering blow after blow. This is helpful when attacking weakpoint gauges, because the enemy cannot escape. When dashing, Zelda flies as her animation. Her dodges are quick and graceful. The Wind Waker is the weakest of the three weapons, though its design is the most iconic. Zelda's strong attack is to send out a twister that she can manipulate all around the battlefield, before it runs out. Her weapon chain includes electricity, as seen in the barriers of the Wind Waker Game.
