Template:Character Malanya is a character in Breath of the Wild.

Biography

Malanya is the god who watches over the horses of the world.[1] He makes his home in the Faron Region in Malanya Spring near the Lake of the Horse God, though he has been trapped in a Great Fairy Fountain-like flower bud for a unspecified length of time,[2] and requires 1,000 Rupees to regain his power.[3] Once Link procures the necessary Rupees, Malanya will offer to revive a horse the young hero loves that has died over the course of his journey.[4]

Malanya is usually calm and refined, though he will occasionally loudly threaten Link if he believes the hero is mistreating horses;[5] he always follows this up by claiming he was merely jesting, however.[6]

Trivia

  • Malanya's theme music, which plays in Malanya's Spring after you have paid him 1,000 Rupees, is a combination of the Lon Lon Ranch theme from Ocarina of Time (itself an expanded version of Epona's Song) and the Great Fairy Fountain music.

Etymology

The Chinese names Ma means "horse",[7] Lan means "orchid",[8] a type of flower, and Ya means "elegant" and "refined".[9]
