Ash Swamp is a location in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Features and Overview[]

Ash Swamp is located in West Necluda. Like the adjacent Blatchery Plain, Ash Swamp is composed of generally flat land with tall Grass and ruined buildings.

During the second Great Calamity, Guardians made their way through Ash Swamp on their way to Fort Hateno.[2] After Link fell in battle to a Guardian in Ash Swamp, Zelda's powers awoke and she destroyed most of the surrounding Guardians.[3] Consequently, the remains of several Guardians litter the Plain and can be searched for Ancient Materials. The events of the Great Calamity can be retrieved in the final Recovered Memory, "Zelda's Awakening", near the southern part of the Swamp.

A stone Treasure Chest containing an Emblazoned Shield can be found beneath a pile of bombable Rocks in the northern section of the Swamp. A second stone Treasure Chest containing a bundle of five Fire Arrows can be found at the center of the Swamp. A third stone Treasure Chest containing a Double Axe can be found at the southeastern section of the Swamp.


Minor Enemies[]




Ash Swamp derives its name from the eponymous colloquial term for the Fraxinus genus.
