Hero of the Wild Set
Forgotten Temple (Breath of the Wild)
Completion of all 120 Shrines (Breath of the Wild)
Master Sword Beam Up (after ★★★★ upgrade)
Breath of the Wild
The design is effectively the game's customary green Hero's garb for Breath of the Wild, in the tradition of previous games.
Each armor part requires parts from one of the three dragons in the game:
Cap of the Wild
Tunic of the Wild
Trousers of the Wild
Enhancing Armor requires that Link has unlocked as many Great Fairy Fountains as the desired star-level.
|★||7||10 × Acorn |
2 × Dragon's Scale
|★★||12||5 × Courser Bee Honey |
2 × Dragon's claw
|★★★||18||5 × Energetic Rhino Beetle |
2 × Shard of Dragon's Fang
|★★★★||28||1 × Star Fragment |
2 × Shard of Dragon's Horn
The set provides the Master Sword Beam Up after the set is upgraded to ★★ tier. Increases damage output when holding R to shoot beams from the Master Sword.
- As stated by the game's production, the use of blue clothes for Link (the Champion's Tunic) instead of a green tunic was done in order to provide better contrast with the mostly green expanse of the game's setting. The Champion's Tunic can be obtained more expeditiously than the Hero of the Wild Set, though the game allows for an earlier completion of the 120 shrines if the player chooses to do so.
- It's the only "Hero" set that can be dyed, and the only one obtained not through the use of an amiibo.
- This set requires the most conditions for its obtainment, second to none. There are no other obtainable items or armor in the whole game that require nearly as much completion as this one does, including DLC-exclusives and amiibo.
- The set is the only non-purchaseable set awarded to Link whose headgear, tunic and greaves are all found in the exact same location. All other sets of the nature are found scattered inside chests across Hyrule.
- The Hero of the Wild Set and the Zora Set are the only sets in the base game that cannot be bought or sold.
- The reach of the beam shot from the Master Sword does not depend on this set, but rather, on the amount of heart containers Link has obtained. The more hearts Link has, the further away the beam reaches.

The three parts of the set can be found at the three Dark Skeletons in the Depths. Unlike in Breath of the Wild, there is no pre-requirement to obtaining them other than simply to reach the chest and open it.
|Cap of the Wild||Hebra Dark Skeleton|
|Tunic of the Wild||Gerudo Dark Skeleton|
|Trousers of the Wild||Eldin Dark Skeleton|
