Finding the Secret Treasure Under the Great Fish in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is well worth the extra exploration after saving the Zora domain. After getting rid of the sludge that was polluting the waters of the Zora domain, talking to Sidon again will start another side quest. Our guide will tell you how to complete the Secret Treasure Under the Great Fish Quest in TotK.
How to Find the Secret Under the Great Fish in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Sidon will tell Link a riddle about a secret treasure, including the hint to find it: “The great fish. The eternal guardian. A secret treasure awaits just beneath the story form of its statue. Below the long bridge that reaches for the statue, leave your fears behind. Pass beneath two waterfalls to find your prize.”
After getting the riddle, you might be thinking it refers to the floating fish in the sky as I did. Don’t waste your time going there like me. Instead, go to the giant fish statue at Zora’s domain and set a marker on your map. The treasure is directly underneath this statue.
How to Reach the TotK Giant Fish Statue in Zora’s Domain
To get to the giant fish statue in Tears of the Kingdom, head back to the Great Zora Bridge and jump over the edge just past the waterfall. After hitting the water, fight the current and swim into the waterfall. This is easier to do with the Zora armor on. Behind that waterfall, you’ll find a cave that leads under the Zora domain.
Jump from the high ledge and paraglide deeper into the chasm toward the second waterfall inside. This is the second waterfall mentioned in the riddle. Proceed inside this waterfall, and you’ll find a secret room behind it with a chest. This is the secret treasure under the great fish and behind the two waterfalls.
Inside the chest, you’ll find the Vah Ruta Divine Helm, which gives a swimming boost. On top of that, wearing the helm strengthens your sage link with Sidon. What’s more, is that Sidon’s sage form will wear the helm his sage ancestor wore in the past.
And that’s how to complete the Secret Under the Great Fish quest in Zedla: Tears of the Kingdom. Not only have you strengthened your bond with Sidon, you’ve gotten a useful reward, the Vah Ruta Divine Helm.
