A focal point of Breath of the Wild, are the Divine Beasts in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom as well? These constructs provided hope that there was a way to seal Calamity Ganon aside from Zelda’s powers, but in the end they were corrupted. So, what happened to them after the events of BotW? Are there Divine Beasts in TotK?

Are the Divine Beasts in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom? Answered

Oddly enough, the Divine Beasts don’t make any appearances in Tears of the Kingdom even after being important elements of its predecessor. At most, I found a few mentions of the Divine Beasts from NPCs, but even that’s rare.

As a result, what happened to these large constructs between BotW and TotK is largely unknown. Given how much damage the beasts did after being corrupted, it’s possible that the Divine Beasts were deconstructed or locked away after Calamity Ganon was dealt with as a safety precaution.

Alternatively, the Divine Beasts could have also been decommissioned or turned into memorials to honor Link and Zelda’s friends who sacrificed themselves to try piloting them. But if this was the case, it’s strange that we don’t come across them at any point during Tears of the Kingdom. It’s like they’ve vanished.

While the Divine Beasts don’t have a role in TotK like they did in BotW, it could have been a nice touch to see them included in the game to honor those who died trying to protect Hyrule.
