Ultrahand might end up being one of your favorite abilities. This power gives Link the ability to pick-up, move, and rotate objects. Additionally, you are able to combine items in orders to make new gadgets and creations, like a bridge or even a new vehicle.

However, with Ultrahand you can save the time and stamina. By attaching nearby resources and/or zonai devices you can overcome the gap; don’t be scared to be unconventional and think outside the box.


Another ability you will acquire in Tear of the Kingdom is Fuse. Fusing tools can increase the durability, damage, or add an entirely new effect to Link’s weapon, arrow, or shield. All you have to do is equip the Fuse ability, find an object or resource and attach it to your current weapon; think like Macgyver!

I mean, who actually enjoys getting out of a cave once you have defeated an enemy? Luckily with Ascend that isn’t necessary. Once selected, use Ascend by find the glowing circle located above you. By selecting this location, you will be transported to the hilltop outside of the cave.


Recall is the ultimate Uno reverse card. When using this ability Link manipulates an object by reversing its movement. Recall can be used on falling boulders, thrown weapons, or sending back projectiles, to make Link’s journey a little easier.
