Someone Beat The Zelda DLC’s Boss Naked And With Three Hearts

No shirt, no shoes, no problem.

The final challenge of The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild‘s Champions’ Ballad DLC revolves around a boss fight with Monk Maz Koshia, a wiley warrior from the Sheikah tribe who employs traps and various ninja techniques to punish unprepared players. A YouTuber who goes by Delicious Tea decided to throw caution to the wind, however, and try to take Koshia on with only three hearts, no clothes, and a dagger.

The fight is normally punishing enough, even for experienced players who’ve gotten comfortable with the game’s combat over the course of several months. The fight includes several distinct phases with Koshia imitating different boss tactics or fighting styles you’ve encountered elsewhere in the game. Most players would head into this fight with a ton of hearts, the Master Sword, and an elixir buff or two.

Delicious Tea went in with none of those things, because what’s the point of being the Hyrule’s beacon of hope if you need to brute force your way through every fight. They make short work of the first section where Koshia simply runs at you. In the second part though, Delicious Tea is clever to use the Sheikah Slate’s camera mode to lock onto the real Koshia among all the clones.

From there they move on to the third and final stage where Koshia gets big, launches spikey boulders at Link, and generally stomps around like the toddler from Honey, I Blew Up The Kid. Over the course of the fight Delicious Tea burns through two and a half Ancient Short Swords but miraculously doesn’t get hit a single time. The entire flawless fight takes just under seven minutes.

  • Impossible! Why would you do this Delicious Tea beating Monk Maz Koshia?! You fucking little bastard I can’t do that shit. I can’t even get my Master Sword powered up to 60 damage by completing the final trials in the Trial of the Sword DLC in Breath of the Wild and beating Maz Koshia is not worth it for me because that’s bullshit. I can’t even find anyway to unlock the Master Cycle Zero. So well done to you Delicious Tea but for me I’m fucked my Hyrule DLC adventure is over that’s it.

    • “I can’t even find anyway to unlock the Master Cycle Zero.” you just need to beat up Maz Koshia and boom new bike. I struggled a bit with the whole clone army phase but otherwise wasn’t so bad.

      But yeah the sword trials were hard, I failed on the second one a few times before getting it, and the last one took a long time so I almost died in that one too.

    • I thought Maz Koshia wasn’t too hard, but like @blake below says, he is quite challenging once he brings in the clones.

      You need to defeat him in order to get the bike. The bike is pretty fun but in all honesty… it’s not enough to keep me playing the game. I dare say, I think for now, I’ve had enough.

      As for the trials, agreed. I couldn’t finish it either. I’ve reached the very last trial three times, and I always die.

      • I think the only reason I passed the final trial was because I found a few ancient arrows along the way and whenever a lynel popped up I just immediately ended it’s existance without trying to fight it. Was definitely a scary challenge though.
