Horse (Hyrule Warriors)
|This article describes a subject that is or may be outside the core Zelda canon.|
"Link's beloved steed and most faithful companion. When the gauge is full, charge ahead with a Strong Attack. You can also charge by holding / at the end of a Combo Attack."
The Horse is one of Link's weapons in Hyrule Warriors. It is part of the Master Quest Pack. All three ranks are unlocked upon installing the DLC pack. The horse weapon allows Link to ride on the back of Epona.
Epona is very versatile. She may be a bit awkward to fight bosses with, but it is not too bad. Upon Epona's back, Link can pull her places with the Hookshot, shoot his Bow and Arrows, throw his Boomerang, and use Bombs. The attack chains allow Link and Epona to fight in tandem. For example, one of the combo chains is for Epona to kick enemies up into the air while Link shoots them three times with his Bow and Arrows. For the victory pose, Link plays the Ocarina of Time to call his precious steed. They then ride off into the distance.
