"Grants a toughness effect, which fortifies your bones to strengthen your defense. Best to use before facing off against hard-hitting enemies."
— In-game description

The Tough Elixir is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a curative item with a "Tough" effect which temporarily increases a defense, though the duration and level varies depending on how it is cooked and the ingredients used. Link can make it by cooking a Rugged Rhino Beetle with monster or guardian parts in a cooking pot. Link can add addition ingredients such as nuts or "Tough" food materials that add healing effects to food like Fortified Pumpkin, Ironshroom, Ironshell Crab, Armored Carp, and Armored Porgy. Link can also add "Tough" ingredients to boost the its duration, like Armoranth (which is the only "Tough" food material that does add a healing effect). However Rugged Rhino Beetle and parts must be used as primary ingredients in order to produce Tough Elixir.
