The Zora Armor is a recurring outfit in The Legend of Zelda series.

Twilight Princess

The Zora Armor is given to Link by Queen Rutela after he takes her son, Prince Ralis, to Kakariko Village. It was crafted by King Zora before his death and left in his grave awaiting the Hero. The armor, when equipped, allows Link to swim and breathe underwater like a Zora. However, it makes him more vulnerable to fire and ice attacks.

Breath of the Wild

"Custom armor painstakingly crafted by each generation's Zora princess for her future husband. Wearing it will you you the ability to swim up waterfalls."

— In-Game Description

Link obtains the Zora Armor as a gift from King Dorephan in order to help stop Divine Beast Vah Ruta. It gives Link the ability to swim up waterfalls at breakneck pace, enabling him to stop Vah Ruta and enter the Divine Beast itself. It's stated that Mipha personally made the armor for Link as a token of her love for him.[1]

It has a base defense of 3, can be enhanced and dyed, and comes with the additional effects of increased swim speed and the ability to swim up waterfalls.

Armor Set

The Zora Set (also including Zora Helm and Zora Greaves) significantly reduces the stamina cost of dashing in water when all equipped pieces have been enhanced at least twice.

  1. "Now you know who her heart belonged to and who she made this special armor for. The fact that this armor fits Link perfectly should be proof enough that Mipha made it for him and him alone!" — Sidon, Breath of the Wild
