The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom now has amiibo support, including previous Zelda amiibo figures and a new version of Link specific to the game. By scanning amiibo, you can get drops, like special armor pieces, weapons, and paraglider fabric.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom amiibo rewards and unlock list
Here are the confirmed amiibo unlocks in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom so far. The links in this table will take you to product pages for each amiibo, but bear in mind that amiibo (particularly Zelda amiibo) are hot commodities, and may not always be in stock. As of this writing, none of those in stock are currently available at MSRP, with prices higher due to scarcity.
Amiibo rewards and unlocks in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
How to use an amiibo in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
As with Breath of the Wild, you can scan amiibo from your ability wheel to gain bonus items — some of which are themed to previous Legend of Zelda games. (If amiibo scanning is disabled for you, you can enable scanning functionality within the Options menu.)
After selecting the amiibo “a” logo, from the wheel, you can hold the amiibo against Nintendo Switch logo on the center of your pro controller or against the right control stick on your Joy-Con (or Switch Lite).
How do amiibo rewards work in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?
Amiibo rewards range from paraglider fabric to armor, weapons or materials (like ancient blades), depending on the figure in question.
For example, scanning the Majora’s Mask Link amiibo grants you the chance to themed fabric for your paraglider, or the Fierce Deity set. Beyond that, amiibo often also have a theme running through their respective characters — such as most Link amiibo dropping a type of generic sword, or Zelda amiibo granting minerals, herbs and flowers.
Know that each respective reward is not guaranteed each time you scan, meaning you have to continue tapping amiibo multiple times in order to unlock all related items.
With a once-per-day scanning limit per individual amiibo, it could take a while to unlock everything within that figure’s reward pool. However, the good news is pretty much everything an amiibo can unlock, can also be found in-game — so see this as an additional shortcut to get various themed items, albeit with a dash of luck involved. The exception to this is paraglider fabric, which is exclusive to amiibo.
Update (Feb. 8): Best Buy is accepting pre-orders for Sheik, Guardian, and Wolf Link, so we’ve updated the retailer links for those amiibo options.
