So, you wanna unlock Epona in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, huh? You’ve come to the right place. Epona, the legendary horse from previous Zelda games, is indeed hiding somewhere in the vast world of Hyrule. I’ll guide you step by step on how to find her. Don’t worry, it’s not too tricky!

Before we start, there’s one thing you should know: to unlock Epona, you’ll need the Super Smash Bros. series Link Amiibo. If you don’t have one, it will be impossible get Epona. But if you do, let’s get this party started! For those who do not have the amiibo and think this is BS, it is possible to create an amiibo using an Android phone and it is also possible to buy a complete set of Zelda amiibo cards from Amazon for very cheap.

  1. Prep your Amiibo: Make sure you’ve got your Link Amiibo handy. You’ll need to enable the Amiibo functionality in the game first, though. To do this, open the game’s main menu, go to the “System” tab, and then select “Options.” You’ll find the “Use Amiibo” option there, so just toggle it on.
  2. Get yourself to a nice open area: To summon Epona, you’ll want to be in a wide-open space without any hazards, like cliffs or enemies. It’s best to choose a location where you won’t accidentally trigger any unwanted battles or events.
  3. Bring out the Sheikah Slate: You know that handy-dandy tool you’ve got in the game? Time to put it to good use! Press up on the D-pad, and you’ll see the Amiibo Rune. Select it, and you’re all set.
  4. Time to summon Epona: With the Sheikah Slate ready, tap your Link Amiibo on the right Joy-Con’s thumb stick. (Click here if you need more help scanning Amiibos on the Nintendo Switch). Epona herself should show up but be warned, she will only show up the first time you scan this amiibo.
  5. Don’t forget to register her: To make sure Epona is saved as your loyal steed, head over to the nearest stable and register her. Just talk to the stable master, and they’ll help you out. They’ll also tell you how amazing your horse is (because, you know, it’s Epona!). Check this guide on how to register horses in Breath of the Wild for more.

And that’s it! You’ve now got Epona, the legendary horse, by your side in Breath of the Wild. Enjoy exploring Hyrule with your new buddy, and happy adventuring!
