"A quick frog that can be found hopping around near water. Cook it with monster parts to draw out its speed-boost effect."
The Hot-Footed Frog is a common material found in Breath of the Wild. They can typically be found in shallow bodies of water around Hyrule such as around Lanayru Great Spring or Hyrule Ridge. They can be sold to shop-vendors all over Hyrule for 2 Rupees each. Cooking them with monster parts results in a speed-boosting elixir. They can also be used for Green Dye at the Kochi Dye Shop.
Hot-Footed Frogs can be cooked alongside monster parts to create Elixirs. The Hot-Footed Frog will give Link a Speed enhancement. When cooked with a monster part that has no specific enhancement, such as a Bokoblin Horn, Link will create a Hasty Elixir. This will temporarily boost Links movement speed. If Link cooks the Hot-Footed Frog along with food, it will result in Link making Dubious Food.
