Can you go straight to the final boss in Tears of the Kingdom?

Take on the demon king as early as you want in Tears of the Kingdom.

In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, players can enjoy freedom unlike anything we’ve seen before in open-world games. How you play and what you do are entirely your choice. Breath of the Wild even lets players fight the final boss right after the tutorial, but can you do the same here? For those who want a challenge, there is a way to fight the final boss early on. Find out what you need to do before you can confront Ganondorf here.

To approach the final boss in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you’ll first need to complete two tasks, which are pretty easy to do.

  • Complete a handful of tutorial fights at the beginning of the game
  • Unlock the Paraglider (Obtained from Purah in the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower during the Crisis at Hyrule Castle mission)

Once you complete these two simple tasks, you can do whatever you want in the wilds of Hyrule, including heading to the final boss arena.
