The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is filled with little details and easter eggs that make exploring the world so much fun. And one particular feature carried over from Breath of the Wild is the way various characters react to Link behaving in unusual ways. More specifically, leave Link naked.
Okay, so Link can’t technically be completely naked. He has a pretty trendy looking pair of shorts that he wears no matter what. But if he avoids the shirt and pants combo, countless characters will comment on his appearance with comments ranging from amusing to embarrassing to scandalous. Here are just a few we found:
Even the Zonai Constructs cyborgs don’t understand why Link is acting this way.
Many people seem to really want Purah’s attention, and I don’t think this is the best way to get it.
Poor Paya. She’s been awkward enough with Link already – why do we have to make things harder for her?
Some characters don’t react to Link’s nudity at all. Others would make casual remarks as Link walked by, like Robbie’s sneaky observation here.
Beedle would help if possible, but alas.
These traveling gerudo hope to find men on their journey and have practiced normal interactions with them after years of not seeing them. Link managed to ruin all their training without saying a word.
Impa, like Purah, doesn’t think much of Link’s life choices if you approach her in this outfit.
Traysi from Lucky Clover Gazette is not someone to judge.
These are just a few of the interactions.
These aren’t the only interactions Link has with various Hyrule citizens as he wanders around naked. And in fact, the characters will also react with other strange behaviors. Using Ultrahand, fighting monsters, or swinging weapons around will cause illegal reactions from almost all NPCs. Some Sheikah characters will be really annoying if you appear in Yiga costumes. And many people don’t like it if you try to talk to them while standing at the table:
You can also get a positive response from Stable Masters by bringing something that isn’t really a horse and trying to register it:
There are certainly plenty of other little interactions scattered across the Hyrule that can be found depending on what Link is wearing or doing with the enormous level of detail included in this game. We will continue to share them as we mine them.
