- "A dish gone awry after mixing conflicting ingredients. It doesn't taste great, but as they say, beggars can't be choosers."
- — In-game description
A Failed Experiment is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a curative item that restore Link's Heart Containers by refilling a quarter of a Heart Container. It is a failed dish that can be cooked from one or two basic ingredients.
The Failed Experiment only appears in early beta builds and demos of the game and does not appear in the finalized version. Its description contains numerous similarities and the same icon with the Rock-Hard Food curative item which appears in the finalized version indicating it was likely replaced by Rock-Hard Food at some point in development.
