Tears of the Kingdom inventions

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve made in Tears of the Kingdom so far?

We’re now three days into The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which has certainly seen a lot of players dive into the latest Hyrule adventure. A big part of this new entry is construction: being able to build and break things in equal measure thanks to the Ultrahand power.

Unsurprisingly, everyone has built some weird, weird stuff with it. Cars and planes seem almost banal compared to what I’ve seen. Take, for example, Giant With a Rocket Appendage. You can guess which appendage has the flames.

The experiments are not limited to Link alone, either. The new backpack-addled Koroks have become crash test dummies for the courageous hero’s harebrained inventions.

Even in shrines, I find myself not settling for functional, but aiming for the absurd. There’s a slapstick comedy vibe to all the physics-driven possibilities in this space, and it’s supremely enjoyable to smash these systems up against each other.

As Tears of the Kingdom goes on, and I continue to unlock more and more Zonai tools, the possibilities feel endless. At first, a simple car was a surprise. But after building flame-spewing trucks and laser-blasting roombas, it feels like there’s a world of design and invention waiting out there in Hyrule.

So, to the Destructoid community, I ask: what’s the weirdest thing you’ve made so far? Share your inventions, successful or not, in the comments below and help spur on the general imagination. I’m hoping to find some sparks of inspiration for my next Korok delivery system.
