The zany antics in this Zelda: Breath of the Wild clip would make Bugs Bunny blush


Wile E. Coyote (Yiga Clan), meet boulder

If you've played hundreds of hours of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can prooooobably tell what's going to happen in the below clip based on the header image alone. But in case you're part of the literal 4.7% that never started playing (math!), I'll parse it for you.

Twitter user Carl Anka turned us on to a particularly amazing situation set up by kure4_aoi. Not because it's unique, mind, as foiling the evil shapeshifting Yiga Clan has been a popular pastime since the game launched, but because of the way it actually plays out. Link is seen at the start of the video prepping a boulder with the Stasis Rune, a sort of magical time-stopping and kinetic energy building spell.

By striking the rock with a ton of hits they can get it primed and ready to slam into a specific direction, and as soon as the Yiga member reveals that it's not actually a kind citizen in distress: BAM, it gets smacked like a Looney Tunes character (or a villain from the Adam West Batman TV show).

This is some real Road Runner shit! They get smashed so far they instantly explode and their weapon even wonderfully floats in the air. I can just imagine the game freeze-framing and them saying "well this really is rock bottom...isn't it?" before they get crushed.
