Electro is an effect that is applied to food and elixirs in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Electro meals are created when Link cooks Electric Safflina, Voltfruit, Zapshroom and/or Voltfin Trout in a Cooking Pot as part of a meal (with no conflicting effects). As can be seen in the table below, Zapshrooms & Voltfin Trouts make more powerful Electro meals than the alternatives for the same number of items.

Similarly, a Electro Elixir can be made by cooking Thunderwing Butterfly and/or Electric Darner with Monster Parts.

Electro meals & elixirs give Link temporary Shock Resistance, reducing the damage he takes from electricity-based attacks.

Effect Points

Effects in Breath of the Wild come in tiers. In making an Electro meal, a number of hidden points determine how strong the effect is, and thus the level of Shock Resistance it gives Link:

Point Threshold Effect Tier

Effect points and durations of Electro ingredients are shown in the table below. Note that other, otherwise-neutral ingredients (notably dragon parts) also increase durations - see Cooking in Breath of the Wild § Durations for the full table. Cooking under a Blood Moon, using a Star Fragment or dragon part also increases duration or effect strength, and there is a random chance of this happening any other time; while Monster Extract randomises both strength and duration of effect.

Items Points Time Added

Electro meals and Electro Elixirs are generated as in Breath of the Wild.
