Teba is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda game series, having debuted in Breath of the Wild.[5] and appeared once more in its sequel Tears of the Kingdom[6] In Breath of the Wild, Teba is a fairly young but grown Rito warrior. He is married to the female Rito Saki and together they have a son named Tulin who wishes to be a warrior himself. By the events of Tears of the Kingdom, however, the elder of the Rito, Kaneli, has appointed Teba as the next elder and Tulin has grown up and become a warrior and scout.


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild[]

Teba is the current Rito Warrior that protects Rito Village in Revali's place. His wife, Saki, and his son Tulin are found in Rito Village. He is Harth's childhood friend.[7]

Teba is found at the nearby Flight Range making preparations for an assault on the Divine Beast Vah Medoh alone.[8] When he meets Link and hears that he has come to help with his attack,[9] he first tests him on his midair archery skills by challenging him to hit five Targets in under three minutes.[10] Once Link is successful, Teba praises his skill and allows him to assist, suggesting that Link takes the Falcon Bow in the nearby Treasure Chest.[11][12] When Link is ready, Teba will tell Link he needs Bomb Arrows to take out Medoh's Cannons as regular Arrows will have no effect.[13] Teba will then give Link a bundle of 20 Bomb Arrows or remind Link not to forget some, depending on whether he has less than 20 Bomb Arrows or not.[14][15] During the battle with Medoh, Teba does his best to draw the Cannons's aim away from Link until he has taken out all four.[16] After Link destroys the Cannons, Teba is forced to retreat back to the Flight Range to recover as his leg got injured during the fight, leaving Link to take down Medoh.[17]

After Medoh has been freed from Calamity Ganon's corruption, Teba is found at the Village recovering until he can stand again and take his son to the Flight Range.

Tears of the Kingdom[]

Teba has become the Rito Village Elder, while still raising Tulin with Saki's help. He is responsible for managing the supplies during the great blizzard.

Other Appearances[]

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity[]

In the Air and Lightning Scenario, Revali is struggling in the battle against Windblight Ganon and is hit in the wing, though he tries brush it off as he is flying off-balance as it was aiming its cannons, intending to shoot him.[18] However, before all hope of survival is lost for Revali, Teba is summoned to an alternate timeline by Terrako at the moment Revali is about to be killed by Windblight Ganon while piloting Vah Medoh, allowing Revali to recover and get back into the fight. Teba distracts Windblight Ganon and lets Revali get back at it for its attack,[19] and Revali lets loose three Rito arrows from his Great Eagle Bow at the demon,[20] but it deflects his shot. Teba is frustrated that it's still alive[21] but Revali reassure him that he bought enough time for the party to board Vah Medoh and rescue him[22] After Windblight was forced to retreat, Urbosa takes a moment to thank the party and Riju for coming to their aid. Teba, upon witnessing Revali's insincere gratitude towards Link rescuing him,[23] begins to express disgust at this arrogance,[24] although his musing is interrupted by Urbosa,[25] who proceeds to ask Zelda what happened at Hyrule Castle.[26] After hearing these recent events, Teba joins Revali to help him defend western Hyrule from a surge of monsters and corrupted Guardians that plague it. Teba defends Revali from the Guardian Skywatchers, and shoots down the others and is soon pursued by them. Revali returns the favor by hitting his pursuers, causing Teba to be impressed by Revali's skill[27] With his signature smirk, Revali is prepared to show off the extent of Medoh's power.[28] As they take out numerous monster outposts, Windblight Ganon reappears a few times in a final attempt to kill not only Revali, but Teba as well. But Revali was able to unleash his rage by finally slaying the demon.

In the Guardian of Remembrance DLC EX Searching Hyrule Forest, when Revali notices an unfamiliar Rito child in Korok Forest before he completely disappeared in the depths, he reports to Teba on the subject. Horrified, Teba pleads to tag along and Revali agrees to let him. He then asks for a description of the missing child and Revali states that he has white feathers similar to him and he never seen him in the village. After some searching, the child finally turns up and Teba recognized the child as his only son, Tulin. He then explains that he somehow ended up in the forest and he was looked after by "tiny creatures", which intrigues his father. Teba is uncomfortable leaving Tulin alone in the forest and a Rito Captain volunteers to protect Tulin on their way out. Teba introduces Tulin to Revali, who is pleasantly surprised that they are related, and both have traveled through time. Tulin then praises Revali, but mistakenly believes that he is just another Rito warrior who might be just as good as the Rito Champion, which a shocked Revali corrects him that he is actually the real deal. During their journey out, Tulin continues to be amazed by Revali's prowess, leading him to believe that he is still worshipped even after a hundred years. When they make it to their destination, which turned out to be a dead end, Revali becomes flustered that they should have consulted the help from the Koroks, but Tulin who can read the wind and was given knowledge on the false passages, reveals the way out and after revealing the second passage, Revali becomes impressed by Tulin's skills in understanding the wind as the child guides the grownups out. After a final surge of monsters, Teba thanks Revali for his help, but Revali tells him to stop with the excessive praise.

Once they are able to escape to the forest entrance, Teba lets Tulin off his back and reminds Tulin to use his manners since Revali was the reason he was found[29] Tulin complies[30] as he trots to stand in front of the Rito Champion and gives him his gratitude.[31] Revali smiles a bit and compliments him back.[32] Overjoyed to hear this,[33] Tulin lets him know of his intentions to train so that he can be like him as he jumped close to Revali's face as he nervously backs away, and adds that he also will one day master the Great Eagle Bow.[34] Revali sighs as he reminds him that he could have been killed by the monsters in the forest and notes that he wasn't the least bit scared.[35] He looks over at Teba and notes that Tulin will eventually master the wind.[36] Teba agrees, but he adds that he must surpass his father first.[37] Tulin then imitates Revali's speaking patterns[38] prompting a laugh from Teba before he stops himself upon seeing Revali's resigned face.[39] Teba struggled to find the right words, but then Revali succumbs into a warm laughing fit.[40] as Teba and Tulin soon follow. Tulin then attempts his own version of Revali's Gale, which he calls "Tulin's Tornado" only to fall on his back,[41] as Teba walks up to him,[42] as Revali chuckles and reminds Tulin that he still has to keep at it.[43]

In the All Hyrule United Scenario, Purah had managed to get the Sheikah Towers back in working condition and supercharges it to bring armies of all races together, including the Champions, Divine Beasts, and the reformed Yiga Clan. Revali, noticeably more relaxed and light-hearted than he initially was, is fully content with flaunting their power as a whole,[44] and Teba encourages Revali to make his people proud of him.[45] With her surviving father's approval, Princess Zelda takes command of the united army and gives a powerful speech charging for the outposts and taking out the monsters that uphold the barrier so that the Champion Pilots can open fire upon Calamity Ganon. Despite the monster reviving Blood Moon holding them back, the army managed to move forward.

In The Future of Hyrule Scenario, Teba and Revali lead the Rito air force while Zelda leads all the ground forces as they rush to Hyrule Castle to take the fight to Astor and Harbinger Ganon. After both Harbinger Ganon and Astor are defeated, the latter enters into a full psychotic breakdown as he orders the former to destroy the heroes, before he himself gets absorbed by Ganon's Malice and some of it latches onto Terrako, possessing it as it unwillingly attacks Princess Zelda and Link. Once Terrako is sufficiently damaged to the point where it couldn't fight anymore, Teba and the warriors silently mourn its broken state as the now enraged princess swears to destroy Calamity Ganon once and for all and they charge for the sanctum where Ganon awaited them. However, because of his successful reincarnation, Ganon was impervious to all attacks so the princess, out of desperation, tried to use her power to seal the monster. Her power allowed Terrako to get back up and skitter upstairs to sacrifice itself to break down Ganon's defense, allowing the party to attack and eventually defeat him. With some cheering from Daruk[46] and Revali[47] Link uses the Master Sword to critically weaken Ganon enough for Zelda to use her power to destroy him. With Hyrule reverting to its peaceful state, Terrako's blessed screw uses its power to send Teba, Sidon, Yunobo, and Riju back to the future. Teba and the other future counterparts soon depart from this timeline. As he fades away, Teba formally remarks that it was "enlightening," having been able to see "the face behind the Champion".[48] as he was saying good-bye to Revali.[49] After disappearing, Princess Zelda wishes them a brighter future.

In the secret DLC ending, Teba, Revali, and Tulin rest at the Flight Range. Tulin was sleeping on Revali's lap as the latter managed to keep the blanket from being blown away by the wind, as Teba chuckles happily at their bond with one another.

As a playable Warrior, Teba wields a bow in a similar fashion to Revali, with the Falcon Bow being his default starting weapon. Unlike Revali, Teba does not have a 'flying mode'; instead having a charge-and-release arrow as his Unique Action. By pressing X repeatedly during any Strong Attack, Teba will unleash a flurry of arrows at enemies, often zipping about as he does so.


  • If one exits Vah Medoh during the story mission, Teba can be seen in the Flight range groaning in pain over his injured ankle.[50]
  • In Tears of the Kingdom, Teba was originally intended to be the Sage of Wind due to the fact that he, like the other sages, assisted Link in Breath of the Wild. This was changed to his son, Tulin, sometime before the reveal of the game's name after the developers felt that he felt out of place compared to the other Sages primarily due to his height. If he were to remain the Sage, Link's party may seem crowded due to Yunobo, Sidon and Mineru's Construct already being large.

  9. "Let me get this straight. Some random Hylian wants to help me bring down Divine Beast Vah Medoh? I'm not buying it." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  10. "If we approach Medoh recklessly, its cannons will blast us out of the sky before we even get close. ...So I'm going to need to test you before I take you with me. We Rito warriors use the updraft in this ravine to hone our aerial archery skills. The updrafts are so strong here that a person could just open up a cloth over their head and float up easily. Now let's see what you're capable of. You'll have to maneuver through the air and destroy five of the targets set up in this valley in three minutes." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  11. "You're...a skilled archer. It was as if time stopped with every arrow you let fly. I've got to tell you, Link... When you first showed up, I thought someone was pulling a prank on me. But after seeing you handle that bow, I can tell you're the real deal. You must have seen a battle or two." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  12. "Link... I feel I've heard the name somewhere before... Well, if you really want to help me bring down Medoh, it's now or never. I'll get you into position so you can give its cannons all you've got. Inside that treasure chest is a bow I've modified. Take it, and let me know when you're ready." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  13. "OK, it's time to face Divine Beast Vah Medoh. Normal arrows won't put a dent in those cannons. You'll need to hit them with bomb arrows." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  14. "These are a precious commodity, so don't expect me to do this again, but... take these bomb arrows." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  15. "Don't forget the bomb arrows..." — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  16. "You see those cannons? I'll draw their fire. While I'm doing that, use your bomb arrows to destroy the cannons. Got it so far?" — Teba (Breath of the Wild)
  17. "Bad news, Link. It looks like I got hit pretty good back there... I think... I think I need to get back to the Flight Range. I just hope that... I can make it back... You head down to Medoh. Good luck! It’s all you!" — Teba (Breath of the Wild)

  36. "Maybe it won't be long until you're master of the wind just like me. You never know, eh?" — Revali (Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity)
  37. "Haha! That is true. But before that, he must surpass his old man." — Teba (Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity)
