This article is about the dungeon inside the Divine Beast. For the Divine Beast in other uses, see Vah Medoh.

Vah Medoh is one of the four Divine Beasts in Breath of the Wild. Vah Medoh serves as one of the four main dungeons in the game. Link must defeat Windblight Ganon in order to free the Divine Beast from the control of Calamity Ganon. As is with the other Divine Beasts, Link must venture inside and activate the five Sheikah Terminals in order to fight the boss and free the dungeon of Malice. Vah Medoh is controlled by the Rito champion Revali. Once the dungeon is completed, Link will not be able to re-enter it, for it moves to a different location to prepare an attack on Hyrule Castle.


As Link comes in close proximity to Rito Village, a cut-scene plays showing Vah Medoh gliding around the area, making it dangerous for Rito to fly. Link must gain the trust of Teba by training at the Flight Range. After doing so, Teba will carry Link close by to Vah Medoh, allowing Link to shoot the four cannons, giving entrance to the dungeon.

Once Link has obtained a map of the Vah Medoh, he has the ability to manipulate it in order to progress and solve various puzzles. In this dungeon, Link can either tilt the abdomen up or down around 30° either way.


Upon freeing Vah Medoh of Calamity Ganon's influence, it will fly up to the top of a natural pillar in the center of Rito Village, and it spreads its wings in order to prepare an attack on Hyrule Castle. Having completed this dungeon means in the fight against Calamity Ganon, he will lose one-eighth of his health.
