All Lynel Locations in TOTK (Zelda Tears of the Kingdom)

Link better bring his best gear to tackle these monsters.

The half-lion, half-horse monstrosities from Breath of the Wild have made a return in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. They may be really tough to take down, but they drop some seriously good loot. Players, if they're brave enough, would do well to spot out these Lynels so that they can farm some exclusive weapons.

Where to find all Lynel locations in TOTK (Zelda Tears of the Kingdom)

Different colored Lynels are placed in different parts of the map in Tears of the Kingdom. Blue-maned Lynels are stronger than Red-maned Lynels, and the White-maned Lynels are the toughest in the game. Players definitely don't want to take on a White-maned Lynel until they have maxed-out armor and a couple of strong weapons.

Why should players farm Lynels in TOTK (Zelda Tears of the Kingdom)?

Just like in Breath of the Wild, Lynels drop some fearsome gear. One particularly nice weapon that lots of Lynels carry is a bow that shoots three arrows at once. Each shot only uses up one arrow, though, so players won't have to worry about using up their arrows.

What is unique in Tears of the Kingdom is that, instead of high-powered weapons, Lynels now drop average weapons with strong monster parts to fuse with. I managed to take out the Red Lynel north of Gerudo Highlands, and it dropped one part that added 26 attack power!

As Tears of the Kingdom is explored further, more Lynels might pop up. If this happens, this guide will then be updated promptly.
