- "..Hey, it's dangerous to travel alone!"

Botrick is a character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Botrick is a Hylian traveler and watchman who patrols along the roads leading to the Outskirt Stable in the Hyrule Field, well as the path that leads to Digdogg Suspension Bridge. He can also occasionally be found resting under the tree near the fork in the road where the roads lead to the stable and the bridge meet. He apparently patrols the roads to keep them safe for travelers. He wields a Traveler's Sword and Wooden Shield. He is knowledgeable about the area around the Outskirts Stable such as the history of the Coliseum Ruins. If Link "rescues" him from monsters, Botrick will request they keep the rescue between them in order to preserve his reputation as a watchman before rewarding him.
It is possible that Botrick is an homage or tribute to the late Satoru Iwata who passed away in 2015. He has a similar appearance as Iwata, with the same characteristic hairstyle and glasses. This idea is reinforced with the name of the Lord of the Mountain Satori, and Satori Mountain (with "Satori" referencing "Satoru"), when Link speaks to Botrick at the stable. Interestingly, he makes a quote very similar to the Old Man's infamous quote from The Legend of Zelda.
- "...Who, me? What am I doing, you ask? I'm on patrol, keeping the watch! I am a watchman! This southwest corner of Hyrule Field is awash in monsters and suspicious types, so you've got to tread carefully! You can really never be too prepared. If you need proper gear for adventuring you've come to the right fellow! I apologize for only having arrows. But arrows are something that you can never have too many of, am I right?"
