"In ancient Hyrule, this garment could only be worn by the one who had earned the respect of the royal family. Equipping it will reveal an enemy's life gauge."

Breath of the Wild In-Game Description

The Champion's Tunic is a tunic found in Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and is the signature tunic of this reincarnation of Link.


Breath of the Wild

Champion's Tunic has a base defense of 5. It can be obtained from Impa in Kakariko Village after one of Link's memories from Zelda's photos has been recovered.

This tunic, much like the Hero's Charm from The Wind Waker, allows Link to see the health of his foes. This can be particularly useful, as seeing the health of an enemy will allow the player to determine whether or not they want to engage with the enemy.

The tunic is the only piece of armor clothing and tunic in the game that is enhanceable while not being dyeable. The only other pieces of armor with these characteristics are headgear like circlets and earrings.

Enhance Path

Enhancing Armor requires that Link has unlocked as many Great Fairy Fountains as the desired star-level.

Tier Armor Materials
8 3 x Silent Princess
★★ 14 3 x Silent Princess
2 x Shard of Farosh's Horn
★★★ 22 3 x Silent Princess
2 x Shard of Naydra's Horn
★★★★ 32 10 x Silent Princess
2 x Shard of Dinraal's Horn

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Link wears the Champion's Tunic in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as his default palette. Although the Champion's Tunic could not be dyed in Breath of the Wild, it has three other palettes in red (based on the color scheme of a Hylian Tunic), navy (based on the color scheme of a Royal Guard Uniform), and silver (partially based on Link's pajamas in Skyward Sword).

In the Switch release of Skyrim, the player can use Amiibo to get items. The Zelda series Amiibo have a chance of giving the player unique gear. Among this gear is the Champion's Tunic. It is similar to Elven Armor, but it cannot be used with gauntlets, boots, or leggings.


  • During the E3 2016 Treehouse Demo, the Champion's Tunic was referred to as the Champion Shirt.
  • This tunic, when completely enhanced, is the single most powerful armor item in the game with a total defense of 32. All other enhanceable armor parts are capped at ranges from 16 to 28.
  • In-game, the tunic is part of a set of special tunics bestowed to the Champions when given the task to defend Hyrule by King Rhoam before the Calamity. Mipha, Urbosa, Revali and Daruk are all shown wearing these tunics. These tunics are mentioned to have been personally made by Zelda herself.
  • The Tunic's function to show the HP of enemies was a feature from the Sheikah Slate Health Sensor, a function that was removed from the game due to the fact that it was unwieldy. The Tunic truncated the process, removing all extra steps that the Sensor would have required.
