Vah Ruta is one of the Divine Beasts from Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. A Sheikah creation for use against Ganon, it was buried when technology was banned, and excavated 10000 years later in the reign of King Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule.

Princess Zelda offered the role of Zora Champion and pilot of Vah Ruta to Mipha. Though concerned about leaving the Zora and especially her younger brother, Sidon, she accepted when she was told it was in support of her love, Link.  Champion Mipha's Song 

Some time later, she sat talking to Link atop Vah Ruta, using her healing power on his wounds, and promised that she would always heal him no matter what.  Mipha's Touch 

After Ganon re-emerged, Mipha was sent to Vah Ruta with the task of assisting Link  Return of Calamity Ganon , but Waterblight Ganon infected Vah Ruta with Malice and killed Mipha, trapping her spirit there for one hundred years.  Divine Beast Vah Ruta .

As time passed, the possessed Vah Ruta pumped out water from East Reservoir Lake, threatening to destroy its dams and destructively flood much of Hyrule. When King Dorephan sent the now-grown Prince Sidon to find a Hylian who could use Shock Arrows to subdue the Divine Beast, he found the recently revived Link by Zora River. Though he did not recognise him, Dorephan did, and asked him to help Sidon stop the torrent of water.

The two managed to temporarily calm the beast, allowing Link to board Vah Ruta, where he ultimately defeated Waterblight Ganon and freed Mipha's spirit.  Divine Beast Vah Ruta 

With the beast under her control again, Mipha took Vah Ruta to a peak between Ruto Mountain & the Zodobon Highlands and locked onto Hyrule Castle. When Link confronted Calamity Ganon there, she fired, costing the Calamity one-eighth of its maximum health.

After the final defeat of Dark Beast Ganon, Zelda noted on the Sheikah Slate that Vah Ruta had mysteriously stopped working, and decided to go with Link to investigate.
