Blue Nightshades can be found growing in the West Necluda and Lanayru Great Spring regions of Hyrule Kingdom. Many Blue Nightshades are available growing near the Great Fairy Fountain outside of Kakariko Village. These flowers glow at night, making them easier to find.[1] When Blue Nightshade is included in a meal made in a Cooking Pot, it will grant Link increased Stealth when eaten.[1] At the Kochi Dye Shop, Link can use Blue Nightshades to make Blue Dye.

As part of the Side Quest "A Gift of Nightshade", Link must give Wabbin a Blue Nightshade that he can gift to Perda.[3] However, Wabbin will become nervous, and he'll ask Link to deliver the Blue Nightshade on his behalf. [4][5] After he does this, Perda will confront Wabbin, asking how he knew that Blue Nightshades were her favorite flower.[6] Wabbin reveals that Blue Nightshades are his favorite flowers as well, and he decided he would give them to his true love.[7] Once the two of them confess their feelings, Wabbin will give Link 20 Rupees.

For each piece of the Stealth Set, three Blue Nightshades are needed to upgrade it to their first tier at a Great Fairy Fountain. Five additional Blue Nightshades, as well as five Sunset Fireflies, are needed to upgrade each piece of the Stealth Set to its second tier.

  • Total for Stealth Set: 24 (3, 5, 0, 0) x3
