This time, random chance didn't favor Link in Zelda: Breath of the Wild


::extremely Captain Kirk voice:: Naydraaaaaaa

The overwhelming majority of the time, players share random chance videos for Zelda: Breath of the Wild that work out in their favor. But not this time.

While folks have found secrets randomly through gliding and gotten help from the most unlikely of enemies, this time around a benevolent NPC just screwed over this player. Sharing the event on Reddit, xkillah94 recounts how they were minding their own business fighting a Gold Lynel, when Naydra crept up on them and froze them, allowing the Lynel to deliver the killing blow.

For those of you who haven't played Breath of the Wild yet, Naydra is a dragon that roams around the map mostly for flavor and flash purposes (it also drops items if you shoot an arrow at it), but can also occasionally try and freeze the player. It's not a normal occurrence for it to hit you with frost during a fight, but this one just kind of happened and made for a pretty great clip.
