Base Defense



Zant's Helmet is the helmet originally worn by Zant in Twilight Princess. He wears it again in Hyrule Warriors, where it is dropped as a gold material. A copy of it can be found for Link to wear in Breath of the Wild as part of the Expansion Pass DLC, and in Tears of the Kingdom.

Twilight Princess

Zant wears this helmet throughout most of the game. When wearing it, he mostly keeps his madness under control. While he retracts the mouthpiece to speak quietly to Midna when cursing her after the Lakebed Temple, he removes it fully when confronted in the Palace of Twilight and he can no longer hide his madness.

Breath of the Wild

"The ruthless Usurper King of the Twilight Realm wore a helmet much like this one... It's a rather rare find."

— In-Game Description

Zant's Helmet is a piece of armor found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base defense of 3, and was released as a part of the second DLC expansion for the game: 'The Champions' Ballad'. It is directly inspired from Zant, featured in Twilight Princess.

This piece of armor can be found just north of Tobio's Hollow, on a small island with two dead trees, situated in the west side of the bog. Be sure to check our Interactive Map for a more precise location.


After Link has obtained this item for the first time, he will be able to repurchase it from Granté in Tarrey Town for 50 Rupees.

Zant's Helmet can be obtained by clearing the Scorching Coliseum, in the Eldin Canyon Depths under the Death Caldera. It works as it did in Breath of the Wild.
