|Divine Beast Vah Ruta|
One hundred years before the events of Breath of the Wild, Ruta was piloted by Mipha, the Zora Champion. After Calamity Ganon took control of it, it created a torrential downpour in the Lanayru Great Spring. If Link approaches it before defeating Waterblight Ganon, he will be thrown backwards by its barrier.
Entrance to the Divine Beast
Before Link can board Ruta, he must team up with Sidon to disable it. Link must disable the switches on Ruta's sides by swimming up waterfalls and shooting them with Shock Arrows. Each time Link disables a switch, Ruta launches an increasingly savage volley of ice blocks and spheres towards the duo, which Link must break in order to progress. Once he has deactivated all the switches, the endless rain around Zora's Domain ceases and the machine becomes accessible.
Once inside, Link can control Ruta's trunk and move it between various positions. It constantly spews water, allowing Link to position the stream of water by extension. In order to calm Ruta, Link must activate each of the five terminals located throughout it with his Sheikah Slate. After Link activates them all, he can proceed to fight Waterblight Ganon.
Upon defeating Waterblight Ganon, Link is visited by Mipha's spirit and receives Mipha's Grace, a magical power similar to that of a Fairy. He is also rewarded with Mipha's Lightscale Trident by Muzu. Ruta, now commanded by Mipha's spirit, climbs atop a cliff and targets Hyrule Castle in preparation of Link's fight against Ganon.

- "Long, long ago... In a past more distant that even the Great Calamity or the creation of the Divine Beast Vah Ruta... There was a Zora princess named Ruto. We know that she was an attendant to the Zora patron deity and that she was a fair and lively girl, beloved to all. Around that same time, an evil man with designs on ruling the world appeared, bringing disaster upon Zora's Domain. It is said that Ruto then awoke as a sage, facing this foe alongside the princess of Hyrule and the hero of legend. Her achievements are remembered not only by the Zora, they are also forever etched into the history of Hyrule. The Divine Beast Vah Ruta, built ages later to face off against Calamity Ganon, was named in honor of Ruto. That the Zora princess—my sweet daughter Mipha—was chosen to pilot Ruta is surely the work of fate." — History of the Zora, Part Five (Breath of the Wild)
