Main appearance(s)

Dayto is a character in Breath of the Wild.[citation needed]


Dayto is a traveler who can be found walking along the road near the Maw of Death Mountain in Eldin Canyon. Dayto is an indecisive man who cannot decide on what he wants to do. He openly asks himself whether he wants to continue ahead to Death Mountain or to head back.[1][2] He also struggles on choosing a place to rest,[3] whether he should check his map,[4] his method of travel,[5] and other decisions. He is troubled by the state of Hyrule,[6] and only finds respite when it is raining.[7]

If Link saves Dayto from monsters encountered along the route, he will give the hero Energizing Glazed Mushrooms as thanks.


Dayto's appearance is based on that of American actor and comedian Robin Williams (1951-2014); Williams was known for his love of the series, going as far as to name his daughter Zelda. The two appeared in commercials for Ocarina of Time 3D in 2011.

  3. "Hmm... Should I rest here, or should I try to find a better spot? A troubling dilemma... It's not like I'd be able to get any rest right now, anyway... Certainly not with all these troubles on my mind." — Dayto (Breath of the Wild)
  4. "Hmm... Should I check my map, or should I go by intuition like the original trailblazers? A troubling dilemma... Now that I think about it, this is a volcanic road. I'd better check my map." — Dayto (Breath of the Wild)
  5. "Hmm... Should I travel by horseback or continue on foot? A troubling dilemma... Moreover, if I continue on foot, do I start with my left foot or my right foot? A less troubling dilemma..." — Dayto (Breath of the Wild)
  6. "There are so many troubling things in a bleak world such as this. They only seem to cease when I take a break." — Dayto (Breath of the Wild)
  7. "Listening to falling rain is the only thing in this world that isn't troubling to me. Could you come back when it's over?" — Dayto (Breath of the Wild)
