Spicy is an effect that is applied to food and elixirs in Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

Spicy meals are created when Link cooks Warm Safflina, Spicy Pepper, Sunshroom and/or Sizzlefin Trout in a Cooking Pot as part of a meal (with no conflicting effects). As can be seen in the table below, Sunshrooms & Sizzlefin Trout make more powerful Spicy meals than the alternatives for the same number of items.

Similarly, a Spicy Elixir can be made by cooking Summerwing Butterfly or Warm Darner with Monster Parts.

Consuming a Spicy meal grants Link Cold Resistance for a limited amount of time.

Effect Points

Effects in Breath of the Wild come in tiers. In making a Spicy meal, a number of hidden points determine how strong the effect is, and thus the level of Cold Resistance it gives Link:

Point Threshold Effect Tier

Effect points and durations of Spicy ingredients are shown in the table below. Note that other, otherwise-neutral ingredients (notably dragon parts) also increase durations - see Cooking in Breath of the Wild § Durations for the full table. Cooking under a Blood Moon, using a Star Fragment or dragon part also increases duration or effect strength, and there is a random chance of this happening any other time; while Monster Extract randomises both strength and duration of effect.

Items Points Time Added
Spicy Pepper 1 2:30
Sizzlefin Trout 2 2:30
Sunshroom 2 2:30
