Silent Princess is a plant and material found in Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity, and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

"This lovely flower was said to have been a favorite of the princess of Hyrule. Once feared to have gone extinct, it's recently been spotted growing in the wild."

— In-game description

Silent Princess flowers can be found occasionally in forested areas of Hyrule. Three in particular lie by the Master Sword's resting place in the Korok Forest. It is also commonly found on the hilltop behind the Ta'loh Naeg Shrine and surrounding the Great Fairy Cotera. It is the focal point of the Recovered Memory#9, where Princess Zelda examines one growing in the wild. This particular plant is used in the enhancing of the Champion's Tunic and the Stealth Set. They can be sold to shop-vendors all over Hyrule for 10 Rupees each. Silent Princesses can be used in a variety of Recipes, and they have an extra cooking effect of increased stealth.

Like most stealth-related ingredients and animals, Silent Princesses are bioluminescent, and thus easy to spot at night.

Silent Princesses also grow close to Great Fairies, except Malanya, who is a fairy-like deity.

Most notably, a sole Silent Princess can be found in Princess Zelda's Study at Hyrule Castle, it being the only living thing in the whole location that isn't a monster, a Guardian or is blighted with Malice.

"This lovely flower was said to have been a favorite of the princess of Hyrule. They were once feared to have gone extinct, but it's not uncommon to spot them growing in the wild."

— In-game description

A Silent Princess can be found on memorials in many places, including Hyrule Castle Town Ruins. These are dedications from Princess Zelda to the memory of the souls lost to the Calamity.


  • The Silent Princess found at Zelda's study is representative of Zelda's own presence in the castle, persisting with unblemished life in spite of being surrounded by evil. Its scarcity in Hyrule also represents the absence of the Princess.
  • Due to its use as an ingredient to upgrade the Champion's Tunic, it's implied that the flower's reported association with the princess of Hyrule is magical in nature, and that said flowers began regrowing in the wild in the face of the Calamity, possibly for said purpose.
  • Curiously, the flower's scarcity is not represented in its selling value (it being one of the most scarce resources in the game), which is comparatively low.
