Appearances

Breath of the Wild

Revali once lived in Rito Village and was considered one of the best warriors of his race. Before Calamity Ganon's return, he was chosen by King Rhoam and Princess Zelda to become the Rito Champion and pilot of the Divine Beast Vah Medoh. He personally commissioned the construction of the Flight Range north of Rito Village in order to train Rito warriors, including the warrior Teba a century later. He wrote in a journal about his development of Revali's Gale, his inauguration and his difficult relationship with Link.

Princess Zelda comes into the frigid mountain to visit Revali at the Flight Range when she sees him panting as he attempts to summon a column of wind to propel him upwards. However, he is caught in the wind, and he is tossed down again as he lets out a short scream. As Revali struggles to get back up, he goes hard on himself for failing to stay inside the whirlwind and is desperate to get it right,[3] before he spots the watching princess and scolds her for eavesdropping.[4] Zelda apologizes to him as she explains that the villages gave directions to his whereabouts.[5] After Revali catches his breath, he figures that she needs him to become Divine Beast Vah Medoh's pilot to destroy Ganon which he accepts.[6] Zelda was about to thank him,[7] before he interrupts her,[8] and tries again to summon an updraft, this time managing to not get caught as he soars upwards. Revali makes a dive downward as he shoots arrows into three targets and upon landing on the ground, he summons a column of air again as he blows up the remaining targets in quick succession as Zelda watches in astonishment. After Revali lands on the fence, he tells her that he knows that he plays a role in helping a certain knight,[9] and tells her not to come crying to him in the event that this knight loses his confidence when seeing him in action.[10]

When all four Champions have been summoned, Revali attends the Champions' inauguration ceremony alongside Link, Mipha, Daruk, and Urbosa, where they are each given blue cloths. Revali wears his like a scarf. After the ritual is completed, the new Champions relax at the gazebo where Revali becomes intrigued in Princess Zelda's Sheikah Slate and takes it from her hands,[11] as the princess explains its functions while still trying to uncover more secrets.[12] Revali then passes the slate to Mipha to allow her to have a look as Urbosa brings up a topic about the Sheikah Slate's Camera Rune which intrigues Mipha as she asks Zelda for a favor. Revali and the Champions are soon in a photoshoot where Purah instructs everyone to get together, with her telling Revali to move closer,[13] which miffs him,[14] and when Purah notes on Mipha's nervousness and tells her to take deep breaths, Revali looks over at her and smiles when she relaxed. When the results are more satisfactory, she takes the photo, but not before Daruk suddenly pulls everyone in at the last second.

Revali takes part in Link's personal ceremony with the Champions as the latter is becoming Zelda's personal knight, though he was bored through the whole process given Princess Zelda's abysmal tone during her speech. Daruk comments in disappointment on the depressing atmosphere which an annoyed Revali tells him that the ceremony was his idea and does agree that the whole scene is overkill and seems to relate to the princess in regard to their views on Link.[15] Urbosa tells him to drop it as she explains that Link is a living reminder of her own failures, which is in Zelda's perspective anyway.[16]

When Link and the princess pays a visit to Rito Village, the latter is already speaking with the Rito elder while Link meets with Revali, who makes a grand entrance with his signature move, Revali's Gale. He then starts to boast about his list of achievements, one of which is the creation of his gale he showed him and when properly used, they should easily be able to turn back Ganon.[17] Revali hops off the fence as he encircles Link as he goes on the subject that despite the fact that he is among the most skilled archers of the Rito, he feels like his talents are being wasted when he is put on the spot where he is a mere supporter to him since Link possessed the Master Sword.[18] He then offers an opening to prove him wrong and challenges Link to a duel and wonders where they will do it and then he points it up to Vah Medoh which is in the sky. Revali chuckles as he tells Link that he has no way of getting up there on his own as he flies off, sarcastically wishing him luck.[19]

Later, Revali and the Champions see Link and Zelda returning from Mt. Lanayru where the princess had a despondent look on her face as Revali steps forward as he somberly asks if Zelda did not feel any power,[20] which Zelda confirms that she didn't.[21] Urbosa insists that they must move on as being absorbed in self-pity won't do anything to help and states that just about anything could spark that power. Mipha is about to offer Zelda some advice in regard to how she uses her healing power when the ground suddenly starts to shake, prompting Revali to fly up and investigate what was happening and to his shock, Calamity Ganon has emerged from below Hyrule Castle and rejoins the Champions. When Mipha asks him if he is sure,[22] Revali replies that, he is positive.[23] Daruk rallies the Champions to head to their Divine Beasts and Link to go to Hyrule Castle, with Revali looking away when Daruk said that. Urbosa tells Zelda that she must take refuge, but Zelda declines and tells them that she must at least do something to help.

Revali was killed when Windblight Ganon took over Divine Beast Vah Medoh. One hundred years later, Link returned to Rito Village to free the Divine Beast, enlisting Teba's help to reach it. Revali's spirit acknowledges him upon entering and shows Link where the map of Medoh can be found.[24] Once Link receives the map, Revali will instruct him to activate all of the terminals to take back control and asks if he's up for the challenge.[25] Revali will gradually become more surprised as Link activates each terminal.[26][27][28][29] After opening all of the terminals and activating the main control unit,[30] Windblight Ganon appears and Revali advises Link to use caution.[31]

After the battle is over, Revali appears before Link as a spirit and thanks him for defeating the monster and freeing both him and Medoh.[32] He tells him not to take pride in doing his job, but he grants Link Revali's Gale, which allows the hero to create a column of wind which Link can utilize to fly into the air.[33] Revali then intends on taking Medoh to its position on Hyrule Castle and playfully teases Link by adding only if he needed his help and allows him to feel free to thank him.[34] As Link vanishes, Revali tells him to leave since he isn't finished his mission and Princess Zelda has been waiting for a long time.[35] Revali then takes Medoh to the highest point of Rito Village and takes aim at Hyrule Castle.[36] With Link absent, Revali admits that Link is indeed worthy despite his lack of wings and accomplished what he couldn't and hopes Link's luck holds up for everyone's sake.[37]

When Revali's Gale is activated, Revali's spirit will soar up with Link until he reaches his peak before vanishing, and he will let Link know when his power has completed its cooldown.[38]

Once The Champions' Ballad is active, Link can take on EX Champion Revali's Song Quest and go through the trials that Revali himself went through. After the challenge is completed, Revali will be shocked that Link had managed to complete his trial and permits him to use his power far more often and with the strength he had gained, he just might have a chance at defeating Calamity Ganon.[39] After that, Revali's Gale will be upgraded to Revali's Gale +

When Link repeats his battle with Windblight Ganon in the Illusory Realm, Revali will give additional dialogue. In the first dialogue, Revali will ask how Rito Village is faring and there is no one alive who personally know him, but he will always regard it as his home.[40] In the second dialogue, Revali tell Link that they should have had their fight to settle their rivalry once and for all.[41] In the third dialogue, Revali will deny that he is not the author of the diary with his name on it, calling it a misleading title.[42] In the fourth dialogue, Revali sees that Link is training vigorously and notes that he might be anxious of his upcoming battle and may be looking to him to give words of comfort, but Revali is more content with keeping him in line.[43] In the fifth and final dialogue, Revali tells Link not to bring up any topics about him to Princess Zelda, but since it has been a century, he believes that her memory isn't what it used to be anyway.[44]

Upon Link's return to fight Ganon, Revali uses Vah Medoh's power with the other Champions to weaken the beast.[45] After Calamity Ganon's defeat, Revali's spirit is shown with the other Champions and King Rhoam high above Hyrule Castle. After momentarily watching Link and Zelda depart, his spirit disappears along with the King and remaining Champions.

Age of Calamity

Revali - HWAoC key art.png

"A gifted archer who has mastered an aerial move previously thought impossible. While boastful, he has the skills to back up his claims. Now, he is entrusted with piloting Divine Beast Vha Medoh."

At the start of the Revali, the Rito Warrior Scenario, Link and the mysterious Diminutive Guardian named Terrako push their way through a snowstorm as the Rito observe them and fly off. Revali is by himself at the Flight Range when his Rito scouts arrive to tell him about another attack, which a flustered Revali commands them to proceed with a swing of his wing.[46] As the Rito fly out of the range, Revali walks out with his arms crossed as he declares that Rito Village is his home and as long as he is here, he won't let any foe get any closer before taking off with Revali's Gale,[47] and the Rito captains take measures to prevent access from the village including destroying the bridge, forcing Link and the party to take another route while dealing with the Rito warriors. Eventually, Revali acts as the last line of defense and confronts Link himself, and as they fought, Link managed to hurl Revali against a barricade which he soars upwards unfazed and shoots a Bomb Arrow into the air and circles around to use his talons to kick off Link's shield though Terrako alerts Link to the falling Bomb Arrow. Revali switches tactics and fires more Bomb Arrows to create a smokescreen and eventually flips upside down to shoot at Link's unprotected back, saying that Link thinks he's good but he himself is better.[48] Link immediately turns around to swing his sword at Revali and before any of them are hurt or killed, Princess Zelda arrives with a shout for them to end their scuffle,[49] as both Hylian and Rito warriors falter with Link only deflecting a stray normal arrow which lands near the princess. Later at the Flight Range, Revali explains that there was another Guardian like Terrako that had been leading several attacks on Rito Village,[50] which led them to mistake Terrako for the one that led the assault. Princess Zelda is nonetheless relieved that none of them were harmed, with Revali scowling at Link. Impa is interested on the topic of another Guardian, which the Princess stating that they must come up with a strategy. Revali pipes in as he lets her know that he is accepting his call to become Divine Beast Vah Medoh's pilot,[51] but he walks over to Link,[52] and asks if she is sure if the "pathetic knight" has what it takes.[53] Terrako startles everyone,[54] by chiming in and Impa believes that Terrako is calling itself a knight to the princess, which shocks Revali at first, before he scoffs it off dubbing them ridiculous.[55]

During The Yiga Clan Attacks! Scenario, when the Champions are fighting back against the Yiga Clan, commanded by Sooga, Revali gets an idea that they should use a pincer attack strategy by attacking from both east and western sides of the enemy stronghold.[56] Once they do, Revali will notice that the Yiga Clan are running away so he commands to attack their stronghold.[57] When they find a Hinox inside the stronghold, Revali is miffed that they had to waste time with it, but he quickly becomes worried of it possibly invading Castle Town.[58]

During the Freeing Korok Forest Scenario, the Champions and Princess Zelda are at a high cliff as they observe the monsters besieging Korok Forest. Revali steps in and remembers that King Rhoam had chosen them for the important task and is honored to excel.[59] However, he starts to take his anger out on Link and severely questions his leadership in the coming battle.[60] Daruk reminds him that whoever's the leader doesn't matter and they're all dealing with the issue,[61] but Revali dismisses him and retorts that his Divine Beast is the key before he returns to sprouting more insults at Link,[62] until Urbosa sternly asks him how long they have to put up with his gloating.[63] Revali states that he's done talking before he summons Vah Medoh and gets onto it to root out all the monsters that are plaguing the forest.[64] In the end, Revali flies down to let them know that they are okay to proceed before he rejoins them.[65] During their stroll, Mipha talks about the mist in the eerie forest, as Revali goes on a rant on their progress and likely going in circles.[66] Daruk suggests that he should fly up and scout the area,[67] which Revali then snaps at him that he cannot see through the mist and harshly asks him if he ever thinks before he speaks.[68] Urbosa assures them that getting lost is the least of their problems and brings up the real issue is being unable to notice an attack. They eventually run into one of the forest residents Hestu who trying to get their attention and tells them that he's on his way back to the clearing. Daruk asks if he could bring them there, which unnerves Hestu due to the fact that there are so many monsters around. Revali then makes a snarky remark that he can get by without carrying his noisy maracas,[69] while Urbosa tells Hestu not to pay attention to him and offers to help him deal with the monsters for him,[70] which Hestu happily complies as he leads the way, with Revali shrugging as he follows them. They encounter mysterious appearances of Malice and four demonic doppelgangers of the Champions including one of Revali,[71] which are referred to as Hollows, created by the strange seer named Astor, who is allied with the dark forces to prevent the future from ever changing. After Link acquires the Master Sword to protect Zelda from the wicked seer and his Hollows, Revali rejoins the group as the Great Deku Tree wakes up and gave them his words of wisdom. From this point on, Princess Zelda begins becoming more worried as Link had managed to succeed whereas she didn't at something critical.

Revali Champion - HWAoC.png

During The Road Home, Besieged, Revali and the others are heading to Hyrule Castle where he stops when Zelda's anxiety at her inability to awaken her power starts to get to her. Terrako starts playing her lullaby to reveal that it had been with her since childhood before they were disrupted by a monster attack at Crenel Peak. Revali springs into action, through flying into the air, readying his bow, while the Champions brandish their weapons. They fought their way through armies of monsters around the castle. After the battle concludes with their victory, Revali and the Champions are promoted as the new Champions and Revali switches out his white tribal scarf for his new blue scarf as did the other Champions with some of their clothing. After the inauguration comes to an end, Revali and the others lounge at the gazebo with the others when Terrako starts to tease Impa, when she starts to boss it around, by swatting her hand until she starts chasing it. Eventually, Impa and Terrako end up catching Revali in the midst of their fight, which drives him insane as he tells them to take it somewhere else,[72] but they were too focused on each other to heed his voice. Soon, Revali becomes enraged,[73] and flies off to regain control of his temper.[74]

During the Calamity Strikes Scenario, Revali is seen calmly observing Calamity Ganon's revival at Hyrule Castle from the Hebra Sheikah Tower and notes how the crisis is extremely bad,[75] and he soon became terrified when the ground shakes violently as the Sheikah Towers are soon shut down cutting off all contact with the Champions and he is left without any other choice but to board Divine Beast Vah Medoh to launch a counterstrike against the abomination. When Princess Zelda despaired at her perceived failure over her being unable to awaken her power and unable to protect her apparently lost father and the Champions, Terrako plays her lullaby again and summons four Gates of Time which soar to the Divine Beasts, and they see Vah Medoh's circuity still pulsing blue which indicates that Revali is still alive, but the trailing Malice from the beast's wing is an indication that he is in danger and won't hold out for long unless something is done about it, which the same is said for the other Champions. Impa rallies them to initiate a rescue operation for the Champions' sake.

During the Air and Lightning Scenario, Revali is sealed inside Vah Medoh and is attacked by Windblight Ganon. He tries as much as he could to fight back, but he was pushed to the defensive many times and he cries out in pain and tries to brush it off as a mere scratch,[76] as he is sent flying as Windblight Ganon prepares to shoot a charged laser at the helpless watching Rito warrior. But before that could happen, the Gate of Time opens, and several arrows emerge and strikes at Windblight Ganon's cannon to catch it off-guard. The assailant reveals himself to be Teba who traveled back in time to rescue Revali and allow him to recover and get back into the fight. Teba distracts the wind-based creature,[77] while Revali tries to get revenge from above by shooting Bomb Arrows at it,[78] but Windblight Ganon deflects them. Teba is frustrated that it is still alive,[79] but Revali assures him that his support gave enough time for help to arrive as he sees Link and the party arrive via updraft created by Vah Naboris.[80] They only forced Windblight Ganon into leaving for a time-being as Urbosa and Riju arrive. Urbosa thanks Princess Zelda and her friends for their help and she thanks Riju for saving her life earlier, as Riju declines on taking credit as she says that they fought as one. Revali approaches Link and looks at him for a bit,[81] before telling him that he and Teba would have been fine without him, but he admits that it was better that he is here for them.[82] Teba is stunned by Revali's harsh personality and almost comments on it,[83] before Urbosa cuts him off before he could say anything hurtful about Revali before she asks Zelda about the fate of Hyrule Castle.[84] Revali and Teba join forces on Vah Medoh to help protect Western Hyrule from a surge of Guardians and powerful monsters, Teba prevents the Guardian Skywatchers from striking down the Rito Champion and shoots down the others before being pursued himself. Revali managed to destroy the pursuing Guardians that are hot on his trail which Teba is impressed by Revali's skills.[85] Revali smugly returns the Great Eagle Bow to his back, and he declares with his signature smirk that it's time for him to unleash Vah Medoh's divine power.[86] Working together to destroy the outposts, Windblight Ganon returns with a vengeance in an attempt to not only take Revali's life, but Teba's as well. Only this time, Revali is prepared for it delivers a full barrage of his fury with the use of Medoh's weapons to finally destroy the entity and successfully secured the area.

In the EX Searching Hyrule Forest Guardian of Remembrance Scenario, Revali spots a young Rito child roaming the forest and quickly loses track of it. Unsettled, Revali then lets Teba know what he saw, making Teba worried for its safety and implores him to let him come along. Revali, despite his doubts about Teba's emotional state, lets him do so. When asked for a description, Revali tells him that the child has the same-colored feathers and face as him and notes that he has never seen one like him in the village. Eventually the child turns up, with Teba immediately recognizing the child as his only son: Tulin who somehow ended up in this era. and the Rito Caption offered to protect Tulin when Teba expressed discomfort on leaving him alone in the monster infested forest. Tulin soon meets Revali, mistaking him for another Rito Warrior, before the shocked Revali corrects him that he is seeing the real deal. Tulin often expressed amazement at Revali's unrivaled prowess which Revali learns that he is still remembered, and there is still no one who has ever broken his records. When they reached their initial destination, which they found to be a dead end, Revali starts to lament that they don't have a way out without the help of the Koroks. Tulin reveals that he learned from the Koroks that the forest had secret passages that are covered by false walls, which amazed the adults around him and after a final surge of monsters were defeated, they managed to escape safely. As they make it back to the entrance, Teba lets Tulin off his back and tells him to thank Revali since he is the reason he lived.[87] Tulin complies to his request,[88] and stands in front of Revali to do so.[89] Revali smiles a bit as he tells Tulin that he is pretty good for a little kid.[90] Tulin is overjoyed to hear that,[91] as he excitedly tells him, while jumping close to Revali's face, that he's doing a lot of training so that he can be just like him and hopes that he will be able to master the Great Eagle Bow.[92] Revali sighs as he professionally reminds him that he could have died to the monsters back in the forest and notes that he is still happy despite the ordeal he was put through,[93] and tells him that it wouldn't be long before he becomes the master of the wind just like him.[94] Teba is in agreement with it, but he adds that he must first surpass his father.[95] Tulin shrugs as he imitates Revali's persona,[96] causing Teba to laugh before he gets himself under control as a seemingly miffed Revali asks it that was meant to sound like him.[97] Teba couldn't come up with an explanation and is at a loss for words, but surprisingly, the sight of the father-son bond and Tulin's humor was enough to make Revali's heart melt as he starts chuckling before it turns into a fit of laughing to the point where Revali clutched his tummy,[98] while Teba and Tulin follow up in laughter. After they calmed down, Tulin attempts his own take on Revali's Gale, which he calls Tulin's Tornado and jumps into the air though he ends up falling to the ground,[99] as Teba approaches him to check up on him,[100] as Revali chuckles again in amusement as he reminds Tulin that he still has a long way to go, affectionately nicknaming him "kid".[101]

In the Each Step Like Thunder Scenario, Revali is on board Vah Medoh as he helps save Urbosa and Riju from monstrous reinforcements with Mipha and Vah Ruta, and Daruk and Vah Rudania when they were overwhelmed in battle while they were protecting Fort Hateno. It was also the same place where Princess Zelda finally unleashes her dormant power to save Link from Astor and the Blight Ganons, as well as causing the corrupted Guardians to short-circuit before they were shut down. Purah creates a failsafe that strike into the source of Ganon's corruption of the Guardians, thus disabling them and depriving Ganon of its main unit in its forces which shifted the tides in Hyrule's favor. Because of Astor's betrayal harvesting the spirits of many members of the Yiga Clan to revive the fallen Blights, and Sooga's final fate remaining ambiguous, Master Kohga and the surviving Yiga defect to the Hyrulean Army to get revenge on Astor and Ganon for their mistreatment of them, especially that both Akkala Citadel and Fort Hateno have been successfully defended from falling to enemy forces. King Rhoam is also found to have lived on thanks to the device that Zelda gave him that saved his life in his first encounter with the Guardians at Hyrule Castle.

In the All Hyrule, United Scenario, the Champions, past and present as well as the Divine Beasts and vast armies of each race have been summoned to Hyrule Field when Purah restored power to the Sheikah Towers and amplified them to bring them here. Revali is noticeably much more mature, relaxed and light-hearted than he used to be, as he is looking forward to flaunting their magnificence,[102] as Teba tells him to make his people proud of him.[103] With her father's approval, Princess Zelda takes command of the united army and reminds them that Hyrule is their home that they must defend with their lives and as long as they are united, they cannot be stopped before they charge at the outposts to take them over and defeat the monsters that hold up the barrier in order to bring it down with Zelda's power crippling it further. At Zelda's command,[104] Revali and the other three Champions open fire with their Divine Beasts to weaken Ganon,[105][106][107][108] but the sky turns red as the Blood Moon rises and brings back the fallen monsters. Despite being held back a bit because of the phenomenon, Revali and the united armies managed to breach through to the castle.

In The Future of Hyrule Scenario, Revali and Teba lead the air force while Princess Zelda leads the ground forces as they charge into Hyrule Castle. Astor and Harbinger Ganon awaited them as the former is becoming more unstable as he rants that it was his fate to destroy them. The Blight Ganons were also present, but they have been destroyed forever and the prophet and the harbinger are also defeated by them. Astor suffers a psychotic breakdown as he desperately orders Harbinger Ganon to destroy the heroes, but as Sooga had forewarned earlier, Ganon can never be controlled by mortal beings, and he himself was absorbed by Malice to take on a new form. The stray substance ends up possessing Terrako and turning it against Link and the princess against its will. After they defeated it, Princess Zelda as well as the Champions sadly mourned for their little friend. Princess Zelda is now furious and determined to ensure that Ganon is defeated once and for all as they charge upstairs to the castle sanctum where Ganon awaited them. Initially, because Ganon reincarnated successfully, it constantly shrugged off their attacks and Zelda attempts to use her power to seal it away. Her power reactivates Terrako, who rushes upstairs and uses the last of its strength to shatter Ganon's invincibility, raising the morale among the Champions, allowing them to effectively harm Ganon and they managed to weaken it. As Link charges at Ganon, Daruk,[109] and Revali,[110] cheer him on as Link uses the Blade of Evil's Bane to cripple Ganon enough for Princess Zelda to use her power to destroy him for good. As the people across the kingdom rejoice, the Champions witness light and peace returning to Hyrule and Terrako's screw glows as Sidon, Yunobo, Teba, and Riju are being sent back to their own time. Teba formally tells Revali that it has been enlightening to see the face behind the Champion, referring to Revali as a person, both his bad and good sides.[111][112] Princess Zelda expresses how eternally grateful she is of their help in protecting the kingdom and as the future warriors disappear, she wishes them a future full of light.

In the Terrako's Return Quest, because of Terrako's deeds that allowed the Champions to survive, the Divine Beasts to stay at Hyrule's side, and the kingdom standing strong in the end, even though there was so much damage that still needed to be cleaned up and repaired, the warriors decide to take part in bringing Terrako back to life to repay it for its miraculous deeds, and the warriors, even Revali, took part in hunting for Terrako's fifty components and bring them to the Royal Ancient Lab. While Terrako was able to be assembled, it doesn't seem to function at the moment leaving everyone concerned that they're weren't successful, but Revali reassures them that it is likely just waking up.[113] Impa agrees with him and tries to wake it up her way until Zelda stops her and steps in front of it. Soon, Terrako becomes fully responsive, and the Champions are relieved to see that Terrako is okay as it reunited with the emotional princess whom it plays its lullaby to. Following Terrako's reconstruction, it travels around Hyrule to visit its friends it made and when it went to Rito Village without much trouble this time, Revali pets it hello and lets it ride on his back as he flew. Revali is seen with the other Champions at Hyrule Castle where he gets into a group hug with his friends as the other warriors look on.

During the secret DLC ending, Revali, Teba, and Tulin are seen relaxing in the Flight Range. Revali is sitting in the corner as Tulin is sleeping on his lap and stops the blanket from blowing away, much to Teba's delight. Later, Revali and Teba are with both the present and future Champions as well as Princess Zelda and Impa as Terrako interacts and entertains them. Eventually, Revali and the Champions are at the top of the Sheikah Tower, each having returned to wearing their original attires as their destinies have been fulfilled, as they watch Princess Zelda take off on a paraglider and Terrako joining her. As they float forwards, Zelda and Terrako take a moment to enjoy the beautiful scene which is a good sign that the land is recovering well after the war and is much more confident and mature than she used to be and notes that their efforts to save the kingdom were well worth it.

Quests

Relationships

Link
Revali had an unwilling relationship with Link as is continuously shown in Link's memories. After becoming the Rito Champion, Revali was upset that as the pride of the Rito race, he became nothing more than the assistant to the Princess' Champion. Before Calamity Ganon's return, Revali never believed in Link's ability to become the Hero of Hyrule and looked down on him as a constant disappointment. Once Link defeated Windblight Ganon, the Rito finally acknowledged Link was a hero who could defeat Ganon and stood behind him when Link went to face the beast in Hyrule Castle.

Princess Zelda
Revali is very formal and professional with the Princess of Hyrule, and he treats her with upmost respect whenever they interact with one another. He is very sympathetic towards her in regard to her being unable to fulfil her sacred duty to access her sealing magic, when he asks in a somber tone of voice how it went rather than harshly criticizing her for failing to reach her goals. Revali finds a kindred spirit in the princess as they had worked diligently to unlock their powers and feels her pain when he thinks of the burdens she's carrying.

Mipha
Revali and Mipha rarely interact with each other, despite sometimes sharing the same cutscenes together. In times when they do acknowledge each other's presence, most prominent in Age of Calamity's battle challenges when they are paired, Revali is very sweet and warm towards her,[114] and he understands her importance regarding her role as the team medic and will remind her from time to time to look out for herself. From Mipha's side, she doesn't verbally call him out the way Daruk and Urbosa do, but she does show subtle annoyance whenever he acts up. Despite this, she still shows much admiration for the Rito Warrior and is often the most patient with his shortcomings.

Daruk
Due to their contrasting personalities and their relationship with Link, Revali and Daruk don't usually get along and the two have at times gotten into arguments over different things, with Daruk's disapproval of his harsh treatment of Link and isn't afraid to talk back to Revali every now and then, while Revali often makes snarky remarks at him. Regardless, outside of their usual bouts of bickering, they have some moments during Age of Calamity's battle challenges where Daruk and Revali acknowledge their importance and give respect to each other when it's due.

Urbosa
Revali and Urbosa often tend to be hit-or-miss, as Urbosa is often the one who stands up to Revali and has more success at getting him to calm down than the others have, and Revali seems to answer to her whenever she scolds him. As much as she doesn't take kindly to Revali's abrasive behavior, she never actually disliked him and is concerned for him as she wanted him to understand that since he is young, he is Hyrule's future as much as Mipha, Link, and Zelda are and Revali admires Urbosa's skills when paired in battle.

Terrako
Revali and Terrako did not have a good start when they first met, especially when Harbinger framed Terrako for attacking his village and even after the misunderstanding was cleared up, Revali is still iffy around it, especially when Terrako stands up to him and, according to Impa, calls itself Zelda's knight as well, and when Terrako tried to get Revali involved during its fight with Impa to which it invades his space. Overtime however, ever since Terrako brought back the future warriors to save the Champions and when Terrako was damaged after becoming possessed by Ganon's Malice, Revali silently mourns its state with the other Champions and after Calamity Ganon is defeated, Revali partakes in repairing Terrako after it destroyed itself to turn the tides and he is seen flashing a warm smile before he looks away, indicating that Terrako had grown on him and when Terrako visits Rito Village without any issues with the Rito, Revali greets it by petting it and lets it fly on his back, solidifying their friendship.

Teba
Teba had a strong admiration for Revali and his courage and heroic acts he committed in the past and when he sees Revali battling Windblight Ganon, about to die, Teba travels back in time to protect him and distracts his enemy to allow Revali to get revenge. Teba isn't pleasantly surprised when he saw how dismissive and rude, he was to Link and nearly makes a comment about it before Urbosa stops him. It doesn't kill off the enthusiasm he felt when Revali shoots the Guardian Skywatchers to defend him when he easily becomes impressed by it. Out of all the people Revali had met and interacted with, Teba is among one of the few people whom he treats with genuine kindness and Teba becomes delighted when he witnesses his son Tulin bonding with Revali and how easily he can get Revali, who's usually reserved for the most part, to smile and laugh.

Tulin
Even before personally meeting Tulin, Revali becomes worried for Tulin's safety and as he doesn't remember seeing a child like him, he turns to Teba for help in saving him. After tracking down the Rito boy, Revali noticed Tulin's potential when the boy reveals his ability to read the wind and has received knowledge from the Koroks about the forest's false walls and when they make it out, Revali quickly warms up to Tulin and commends his skills, even when he isn't quite there yet. Tulin's innocence and enthusiasm of him amplifies Revali's positive emotions to the point of laughing, revealing that Revali has a soft spot for children.

Trivia

  • Revali's final design was completed before the rest of the Rito, since it determined what the rest of the Rito would look like.[115]
  • Revali is the only Champion who developed his power, while the rest of the Champions were born with theirs.
  • Revali is left-handed, as evidenced when he holds his bow with his right wing while pulling the string with his left wing.
  • Revali's techniques have inspired many male Rito to train their sons in archery.
  • Revali is the only Champion whose weapon does not appear in the Illusory Realm fight against Windblight Ganon in Breath of the Wild, as the Great Eagle Bow is markedly accurate and powerful for the fight to be challenging.

And if you ask me, the whole thing does seem to be overkill. I think I'm on the same page as the princess regarding...this boy. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  16. "Oh, give it a rest. That boy is a living reminder of her own failures. Well, at least that's how the princess sees him. - Urbosa", Breath of the Wild
  17. "Impressive, I know. Very few can achieve a mastery of the sky. Yet I have made an art of creating an updraft that allows me to soar. It's considered to be quite the mastery of aerial techniques, even among the Rito. With proper utilization of my superior skills, I see no reason why we couldn't easily dispense with Ganon. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  18. "Now then, my ability to explore the firmament is certainly of note... But let's not—pardon me for being so blunt—let's not forget the fact that I am the most skilled archer of all the Rito. Yet despite these truths, it seems that I have been tapped to merely assist you. All because you happen to have that little darkness-sealing sword on your back. I mean, it's just...asinine. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  19. "Unless...you think you can prove me wrong? Maybe we should just settle this one on one? But where...? Oh, I know! How about up there?! Oh, you must pardon me.

  23. "Positive. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  24. "Well now, I've seen that face before... I had a feeling you would show up eventually. But making me wait a hundred years is a bit...indulgent. You're here to wrest control of Medoh away from Ganon, correct? If so, then the first thing you'll want to do is find yourself a map. That Guidance Stone has the information for the layout of this Divine Beast. Can you make it there? - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  25. "You'll need to look closely at your map of the Divine Beast. The terminals that will activate Medoh are marked by those glowing points. You'll need to activate all of the terminals to take back control. Think you're up to it? - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  26. "There are four terminals remaining! Still a ways to go. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  27. "There are three terminals remaining! Keep going. - Revali", Breath of the Wild

  29. "Just one terminal remaining! What do you know? - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  30. "That was the last terminal! Now you just need to start the main control unit! I want you to take a good look at your map. There should be a new glowing point on there. Well? Flap to it! - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  31. "Good luck! That thing is one of Ganon's own, and it plays dirty! It defeated me 100 years ago... but only because I was winging it. I can't believe I'm actually saying this... But you must avenge me, Link! - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  32. "Well, I'll be plucked...You defeated him, eh? Who would've thought... Well done. I suppose I should thank you now that my spirit is free. This returns Medoh back to its rightful owner! - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  33. "Don't preen yourself just for doing your job. I do suppose you've proven your value as a warrior. A warrior worthy of my unique ability. The sacred skill that I have dubbed Revali's Gale! - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  34. "It's now time to move on and start making preparations for Medoh's strike on Ganon. But only if you think you'll still need my help while you're fighting inside Hyrule Castle. Feel free to thank me now. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  35. "Or...never mind, just go. Your job is far from finished, you know. The princess has been waiting an awful long time. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  36. "Medoh's sights are now set. You'll have a precise bead on Ganon from this vantage point. And when the time is right, give him everything you've got! Now we wait for that perfect moment... Medoh, we've been artfully patient for the last 100 years. I doubt you'll suffer a feather ever a few more moments... - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  37. "After all these years, I simply must admit the truth... Even without the power of flight, Link made his way to this Divine Beast... And accomplished something that even I could not... Guess I was wrong about... how lucky he would be. I hope that luck holds out, Link... For everyone's sake. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  38. "Revali's Gale is now ready. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  39. "I truly never imagined you would do so well. Regardless, Revali's Gale should be more efficient than ever. As you are, I guess it's theoretically possible for you to best Ganon. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  40. "You again? Well, since you're here, tell me... How is Rito Village faring? Everyone seems to be doing well, as far as I can tell. I can't fathom that it's been 100 years... There's no one left who would even know me. But even so, it will always be my home. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  41. "*sigh* It's pointless to dwell on the past. Still... You and I should have fought 100 years ago. A duel against the one who came to Rito Village to challenge my authority. Just imagine... The hero of the Rito against Hyrule's mightiest knight! A battle for the ages! Win or lose, I would have liked a chance to settle the score with you... - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  42. "You're rather persistent. Well, at least you have good timing. There's something I wanted to tell you. You may happen upon something called 'The Diary of Revali, the Rito Legend'. Don't believe a word of it! I'm not the author. Misleading title, I know. Got it? - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  43. "You're back? Hmph. I suppose this is part of your training to defeat Calamity Ganon, yes? I can't blame you for feeling anxious about facing the foul beast. Hm? Were you looking for words of encouragement in my dulcet tones? I can understand why you would desire such a thing but having me keeping you in line would have to suffice. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  44. "You're working diligently. As you should. By the way, a word of advice. After you rescue the princess, don't go asking her about me. Understood? Whatever rubbish she may say, do NOT pursue that topic! It's been 100 years, so I bet her royal memory isn't what it used to be anyhow. - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  45. "Now my moment has finally come. Brace yourself, Ganon, for the sting of my revenge! - Revali", Breath of the Wild
  46. "This nonsense again? - Revali", Age of Calamity

  49. "Stop! Please! - Zelda", Age of Calamity

  51. "Out with it! We both know that you will be needing my unique skills... to pilot that Divine Beast. Hm? - Revali", Age of Calamity
  52. "However! - Revali", Age of Calamity
  53. "About this pathetic knight in your service... Are you sure he has what it takes? - Revali", Age of Calamity
  54. "What the- - Revali", Age of Calamity
  55. "It whaaat? Ugh ridiculous. Every last one of you. - Revali", Age of Calamity
  56. "We should strike from the eastern and western outposts. A pincer attack should do the trick. - Revali", Age of Calamity
  57. "Unbelievable. Looks like they got confused and ran out. Now we can attack their stronghold. - Revali", Age of Calamity

  59. "Hyrule's king chose us to perform this pivotal task. It will be my honor to excel, as always. - Revali", Age of Calamity

  61. "It doesn't matter who's the leader. We're all in this together, right? - Daruk", Age of Calamity
  62. "You are, of course, mistaken. My Divine Beast is the key! Really now... It makes no sense. Well...My one comfort is that your reputation...will be completely ruined once you fail. The fallen knight, heh heh! - Revali", Age of Calamity
  63. "Revali, how long do you expect us to put up with your prattle, huh? - Urbosa", Age of Calamity
  64. "I've said enough. The time has come to show you what I'm made of. Now witness... Vah Medoh's divine power! - Revali", Age of Calamity
  65. "All clear over here! - Revali", Age of Calamity
  66. "Are we even making progress? We could just be going in circles. - Revali", Age of Calamity
  67. "Good point. If only someone could fly above and scout the way. - Daruk", Age of Calamity
  68. "As though I could see anything in this muck. Honestly, do you ever think before you speak? - Revali", Age of Calamity
  69. "You could probably sneak right by if you didn't have those noisy maracas. - Revali", Age of Calamity
  70. "Oh, never mind him. We have business in the forest. If you lead the way, we can handle the monsters for you. - Urbosa", Age of Calamity
  71. "Hm. He didn't just steal my good looks, but also my unparalleled talents! The nerve of this guy! - Revali", Age of Calamity

  115. "The core design for the Rito hadn't been set before production started, so finalizing Revali defined how the rest of the Rito would look. I experimented with a number of different bird motifs, like swallows and woodpeckers, but settled on birds of prey. Creating a design that communicated a character that sees Link as a rival - but could not be honest with himself about it - took a lot of trial and error." — page 89, Creating a Champion
