Malanya is a character in Breath of the Wild.[3]


Malanya is the god who watches over the Horses of the world.[4] He makes his home in the Faron Region in Malanya Spring near the Lake of the Horse God. When first visited, Malanya is found trapped inside a bud, requiring 1,000 Rupees to regain his power.[5] Once paid, he will offer to revive any Horse killed during Link's quest for free once.[6] Any other revival will cost him an Endura Carrot.

Malanya is usually calm and refined, though he will occasionally threaten Link if he believes the hero is mistreating Horses.[7] However, he claims he is merely jesting.[8]


  • Malanya's music theme is a combination of "Epona's Song" and the Great Fairy Fountain theme.
