"Riddles of Hyrule" is a Side Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Overview

On top of The Great Deku Tree in the Korok Forest, Link can wake up the Korok Walton.[2] Since Link is there, they realize that he must want to face the "ultimate trial."[3] If Link decides to try it, Walton will announce that the trial has begun.[4] They explain that they will share a riddle about an Item, and then Link will have to bring them said Item.[5]

For the first riddle, Walton asks for something small, red, round, and sweet.[6] Walton bets that their riddle has stumped Link,[7] and they promise to dance for him if he can place the Item on the leaf.[8] The answer to this riddle is an Apple.[9]

Next, Walton tasks Link with finding the specialty fruit of Kakariko Village, which has rock-hard flesh.[10] The solution this time is a Fortified Pumpkin, which are sold at Olkin's Pumpkins.[11]

The third riddle asks Link to find a Mushroom that can warm someone's bones, which can be located in hotter regions.[12] To solve this riddle, Link must bring Walton a Sunshroom.[13] They are plentiful in Retsam Forest.

Walton wants Link a "swimmer" that is capable of zapping people.[14] The answer to this riddle is a Voltfin Trout,[15] which are common in the waters of the Tabantha Frontier and Hyrule Ridge.

Finally, Walton asks Link to find an Item that starts with "h" and ends with "oof", and it is dangerous to have this step on you.[16] This final answer is a Lynel Hoof,[17] which is dropped by all types of Lynels when they are defeated.

After solving all five riddles, Walton will give Link a Diamond as a reward.[18] Walton states that they are out of riddles,[19] which completes the Side Quest.
