This Zelda: Breath of the Wild combat video is straight out of a Dragon Ball Z episode


Rock the Guardian

I'm halfway through another run of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and knowing what I know now: it makes combat trick videos all the sweeter. Twitter user A.xk is taking things to the next level though, completely trashing a Guardian with a ton of abilities rolled into one video.

You've seen Guardian flipping, right? Well A.xk incorporates it into their beatdown. Using the Cryonis to set their prey up, they launch right into the attack with a gnarly surfing slow-motion archery shot, which looks extra flashy thanks to the Daruk's Protection aura. Then they stun it, launch it, use the momentum from the launch to follow it up in the air with their glider; then continue to lay the smack down while the thing is aerial, flinging it back to the ground.

Of course, the slow-motion badass no-look walkaway at the end is not optional. It must be done or there will be a price to pay (less views I'm guessing!). Note that their character is basically maxed out, with multiple stamina rings and a row of hearts. Don't try this at home kids!

Truth be told I'm still having fun with wrecking Guardians three years later. It's pretty much the first thing I do now when I start a new game: go to Hyrule Field and have a field day. Farming up Guardian parts and running straight into the maw of Hyrule Castle is still my aesthetic.
