Konba is a character in Breath of the Wild.[2]


Konba is a Hylian man who can be found camped at the Footrace Check-In. He operates the Footrace Mini-Game.

When approached, Konba notices that Link looks tough and challenges him to a friendly race.[3] If Link declines his offer, Konba will be disappointed, as he finally thought that he found a worthy opponent.[4] Alternatively, if Link accepts, Konba will introduce stakes to their race.[5]

Link can refuse Konba's stakes, which causes him to say he will never get anywhere in life with such an attitude.[6] If Link decides to go along with it, Konba will leave to set up the Footrace.[7] Once Konba returns, he explains that the objective of the Footrace is the pair of Big Flags on top of Mount Rhoam.[8] However, he reminds Link that it is a Footrace, not a "hoof race," and he will be disqualified if he rides a Horse.[9] After explaining this, he will begin the Footrace.[10]

If Link reaches the Big Flags before Konba does, he will be shocked to see that he lost.[11] Back at the Footrace Check-In, he reluctantly rewards Link with a Purple Rupee.[12] However, if Konba finishes the Footrace before Link, he will gloat and cheer for his victory.[13] When they return to the Footrace Check-In, Konba tells Link that he did well, but he will have to try harder if he wants to beat him.[14]

After finishing a Footrace, Konba will ask Link if he wants to start another one.[15] If Link agrees, Konba will become excited and explains that the rules are the same as before.[16] If Link refuses, Konba will be disappointed, but he encourages Link to use his traveling as a chance to build his leg muscles.[17] He also invites Link to come back to the Footrace Check-In if he ever wants to race again.[18]

  8. "OK! Thanks for waiting! I'm so ready I could burst, and I bet you are too! So let's begin...the race! The goal is the flags on top of the mountain! There's only two of us, so the race ends when someone reaches them!" — Konba (Breath of the Wild)
