"Treasure Chests Found
Many Hyrulian people saved family heirlooms and other treasures in chests handcrafted by skilled artisans. Historians found them in Hyrulian homes and mountain caves. Inside they discovered jewels, armor and arrows.

Treasure Chests are recurring objects in The Legend of Zelda series. They may contain items ranging from equipment to rupees to enemies or keys.

Breath of the Wild

There are many types of chests in Breath of the Wild, all which have different properties:

  • Metallic chests (pictured) may be found all over Hyrule, often underwater or under lava. There may also be Sheikah-made metallic chests inside shrines, and DLC-exclusive chests are also of this type. All these chests are reachable through the use of the Magnesis rune;
  • Wooden chests may be found at enemy encampments or floating in water pools and lakes. These chests can be destroyed before opening with melee weapons, bombs or by setting them on fire;
  • Stone chests are also common, second only to metallic chests. Unlike those, they can't be moved through Magnesis, though they can be pushed with an object that's being magnetized. They are often found in caves or under destructible rock piles;
  • Sheikah chests may be found inside shrines and Divine Beasts. They behave like stone chests that can't be magnetized, but they may also be immovable and affixed to the floor.

Most chests, save from the wooden ones, are near-indestructible. The metallic chests can be destroyed under special circumstances at the Eldin province's Abandoned North Mine or at Death Mountain by them with cannon fire from the Gorons' ground cannons. Destroying them shows that the chests have actual physical item assets inside.

Tears of the Kingdom

"Fortunes untold (potentially) await the lucky adventurer who finds one of these. Chests can often be found within shrines or at enemy camps, but there may be some crafty folks who think they're safer underground."

— In-game description

Treasure Chests appear similar to their Breath of the Wild chests. Treasure Chests can additionally be found as a reward for killing a Like Like.
