Balloons are recurring objects and items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2][name reference needed]

Location and Uses[]

Majora's Mask[]

A Balloon can be found in North Clock Town being shot at by Jim with a blowgun. Another appears in the Astral Observatory, blocking the ladder leading out of the sewers. It must be destroyed for Link to continue.

Breath of the Wild[]

Balloons appear as part of the Korok hunting quest. Link will come across pinwheels on his journey. Once he touches the pinwheels, balloons will appear, which he must shoot to make a Korok appear.

Tears of the Kingdom[]

Balloons appear as one of the Zonai Devices Link can acquire. They can be attached to objects to lift them off of the ground, and when a Flame Emitter is placed underneath it to provide heat Link can use it to build a hot air balloon as a means of air travel.
