Shibo is a character from Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Shibo can be found at the Dueling Peaks Stable alongside his older twin brother, Darton. They do everything together and during the daytime, they are found just outside the stable, right by the horses. Link can speak with Darton or Shibo and they will both respond to him. They can see it in Link's eyes that he loves horses and they offer to give Link some tips on them.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

Darton and Shibo will both provide some tips to Link on how he can catch a horse.[7][8] The duo will also teach Link about the difference between spotted horses and one-colored horses. With spotted horses being even-tempered and easy to train, while the one-colored horses are wilder, but have much higher stats. Shibo recommends that beginners should start with spotted horses.[9][10][11][12] The brothers will also teach Link how to train a horse and when the appropriate time to soothe them is.[13][14][15]

Unlike some of the other residents of the Dueling Peaks Stable, Shibo and his brother are not effecting by the rain. Even while it is raining, the twins will stay outside, interacting with the horses. They will remain outside all day long, only coming in at 8pm when they are both sleepy.[16][17] They will sleep at the Stable until 6am, where they both awake at the same time. While asleep, Shibo will dream about spotted horses.[18] Once he awakes, Shibo will try to race Darton to where the horses are and will celebrate if he beats him there.[19][20]

Strangely, there is no animation for either Shibo or Darton to get into bed. They will simply walk over and stand right next to the bed. They will just wait there and if Link keeps them in view, or never leaves the stable, the two will just stand there. Once Link walks away and then looks back, Shibo will be asleep. When they awake, however, there is an animation to get out of bed. Additionally, sometimes Beedle will walk in the Stable on rainy days, blocking the entrance. On these days, Shibo and Darton might be unable to enter and will simply walk around for hours on end until they can get in or Beedle moves.



  1. Hey, Shibo... You think this nosy guy right here is interested in horses? - Darton
  2. Looks like it to me, Darton... Judging from his eyes, he's just itching to get into the saddle. - Shibo
  3. You really can tell just by looking into his eyes! Bro, his head is just filled with horse stuff, right? - Darton
  4. That's right! Just look at his eyes! Right now in his head, it's all horses, horses, horses, food, and horses...right? - Shibo
  5. In that case, you should feel free to ask us anything at all about horses! - Darton
  6. Do you want to hear some tips to help you master your horse? Yah or neigh? I didn't think of that joke, by the way. That's one of my dad's jokes! - Shibo
  7. While horses get scared easily, and if they notice people near them, they'll take off. Just sneak up on 'em from behind real slow. When you get good and close... grab 'em and jump on quick! - Shibo
  8. If you crouch and sneak up quietly... they won't notice you! - Darton
  9. Horses with spots on them are even-tempered and easy to train. On the other hand, horses that are all one color, like straight black or white, are a bit more wild and harder to train. - Darton
  10. But a one-color horse has more stamina and runs faster, right?. - Shibo
  11. Dad said they're hard to handle at first, but if you spend a lot of time with a one-color horse, you'll be best buds! - Darton
  12. Dad also said that beginners should start with spotted horses... When I grow up, I'll ride a one-color horse, though! - Shibo
  13. They're really wild, so they'll run in different directions and buck here and there because they aren't trained yet. When that happens, you've gotta soothe them! - Shibo
  14. But dad also said that just constantly soothing them won't do at all. - Darton
  15. The trick is to soothe them when they do what you want them to do. It's like saying "thanks" to them for a job well done! - Shibo
  16. So sleepy... - Shibo
  17. I'm feeling so sleepy all of a sudden... - Darton
  18. One spotted horse... Two spotted horses... - Shibo
  19. Today I'm gonna beat Darton to the place where the horses are! - Shibo
  20. All right! I got here before Darton! - Shibo
