Central Hyrule is a recurring Region in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][name reference needed]

Features and Overview

Breath of the Wild

Central Hyrule is the central Region of Hyrule Kingdom, containing the Great Plateau, Hyrule Field and the Hyrule Ridge. Link begins his quest in this Region after waking up in the Shrine of Resurrection on the Great Plateau. At the northern edge of Central Hyrule lies Hyrule Castle, which holds Calamity Ganon.

It is known, during the time of Calamity Ganon, as one of the most dangerous Regions in Hyrule Kingdom, due to vast amounts of Guardians being present there and myriad monsters, such as Bokoblins.
