The Undefeated Champ is a Shrine Quest in Breath of the Wild.[citation needed]


Link can begin this quest by going to the Sand-Seal Rally after finishing the "Divine Beast Vah Naboris" Main Quest. The Sand-Seal Race course is available after Divine Beast Vah Naboris is no longer in Gerudo Desert.[1] Here Link will find two Gerudo, Shabonne and Tali. If Link talks to them, the Shrine Quest will begin and Shabonne informs Link that she raised Tali to become the Sand-Seal Racing champion.[2][3] Tali chooses not to speak at all during Link and Shabonne's conversation.[4] Shabonne tells Link that if he can beat Tali's record of 1:30, he can have a trophy.[5] The trophy that Shabonne refers to is the nearby sphere needed to reveal the Shrine and the grand trophy that has been passed down by ten thousand years of Sand-Seal Racing champions.[6] Shabonne charges Link 50 Rupees to race Tali.[7] When Link beats Tali's record, Tali will finally speak and congratulate Link by presenting him with the grand trophy.[8] Tali explains the legend behind the trophy to Link, which tells that the chosen one will be granted a new power when the trophy is offered unto the pedestal.[9] After encouraging Link to place the sphere into the pedestal, the Raqa Zunzo Shrine rises from the ground and the Shrine Quest is completed.[10]
