Ancient Energy is an element in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses[]

Ancient Energy resembles a glowing, highly viscous fluid. It is the mysterious source of energy for the Ancient Technology of the Sheikah.[2] It can be found under Hyrule Castle, just beyond Hateno Village in East Necluda and in Tumlea Heights in Deep Akkala.[1][3]

The final Battle against Dark Beast Ganon implies, that Ancient Energy is sacred in origin. Dark Beast Ganon can only be harmed by Sword Beams from the Master Sword, from Light Arrows fired from the Bow of Light or Twilight Bow and from Ancient Arrows.
