"These are the elite soldiers of the Yiga Clan. They favor the windcleaver blade and are extremely agile despite their bulky build. At this Yiga Clan rank, they have mastered a technique that allows them to manipulate the very earth. By striking the ground, they can create stone pillars and blasts of air."
The Yiga Blademaster is an enemy in Breath of the Wild. They are a part of the Yiga Clan, and occasionally teleport close to Link after he has defeated Master Kohga in the Yiga Clan Hideout. They have an affinity for Mighty Bananas, so Link can use this to his advantage during combat, but this is mainly used as a way of distracting the Blademasters inside of the Hideout.
Unlike the Yiga Footsoldier, they carry a Windcleaver. They can also alter the ground to attack Link, which creates an updraft that, by using the Paraglider, is a way to get into the air and get in an attack on the Blademaster.
