Acorns are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Locations and Uses

Breath of the Wild

Acorns are common throughout Hyrule, often found at the base of Trees or when a Tree is cut down. They can also be obtained by killing Bushy-Tailed Squirrels. Acorns can be eaten raw to restore a quarter of a Heart. As Acorns are flammable, they will ignite when exposed to Fire or scorching temperature], which will result in Roasted Acorns. When Cooked, each Acorn will add half a heart, and the first Acorn used will provide a 10 second boost to the duration of effects in Recipes. Any further Acorns added will not provide any benefits to the resultant Food or Elixir. Acorns are also used as an ingredient for Brown Dye at the Kochi Dye Shop in Hateno Village.

Either Acorns or Chickaloo Tree Nuts are required to cook Sautéed Nuts and Nutcake.

Ten Acorns, in addition to either Farosh's Scale, Naydra's Scale, or Dinraal's Scale, are needed to upgrade each piece of the Hero of the Wild Set to its first tier at a Great Fairy Fountain.

  • Total for Hero of the Wild Set: 30 (10, 0, 0, 0) x3
