A Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild player bothers an unassuming NPC, taking them for a trip across the entire game. This follows a long line of players finding fun (or heartwarming moments) with NPCs, such as the time when fans discovered an NPC as a Satoru Iwata tribute.
Captured by YouTuber Nesis in the video below, the player comes across a Kass bird at Rito Stable eager to get back to his village. While the majority of Breath of the Wild players would probably just oblige and get Kass back to where he belongs by solving riddles, Nesis isn’t like most players and decided to take the feathered friend on one seriously long ride. Specifically, the YouTuber decided to put in the work and just push the character all the way back to his home village. The hike takes Link and Kass by mountains and valleys: a seriously scenic route.
Some fellow Breath of the Wild players who have knowledge of the game’s day and night cycle have also estimated that completing the entire feat must have taken Nesis around two hours (in real life), which is astonishing, especially as there were fights with “random monsters” on the way – though the YouTuber has said that they spent most of their own, self-created quest watching Twitch.
Already, viewers have requested the YouTuber take on other ridiculous feats, for example pushing Sidon (or a Voii) to Gerudo Town or even pushing all Kass together so that they can party. Given how long this took, it’s unclear whether Nesis plans to take them up on the suggestions.
What is clear, though, is that the enthusiasm of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild players should never be underestimated. Since the game was released on Wii U and Nintendo Switch last month, fans have tried their hand at all manner of silly things. While some players have put together their own go-karts and have found ways to skip entire sections of the game, in one particularly outlandish case, a player reached the highest point in Breath of the Wild in a minecart, just by using features and abilities within the game already. The limits of their creativity have yet to be seen.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available on Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
