Secrets and Easter Eggs

Control Terrako on the Loading Screen

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Terrako Loading Screen
Press the L and R buttons to move Terrako around on the loading screen. You can also press the B button to make him jump.

You can also find the number of completed Story Chapters, Challenges, and Quests on the lower left corner of the screen, much like the number of shrines completed shown in a similar spot in Breath of the Wild.

Cucco Glider

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Cucco Glider
When embarking on a story chapter, Link may sometimes use a Cucco instead of his paraglider to glide to the destination.

This is a reference to a gameplay mechanic in previous Zelda games wherein Link can pick up a Cucco to jump and glide down to an area.

Lon Lon Ranch

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Lon Lon Ranch
You can find a ranch on the eastmost area of the map on Chapter 1: The Battle of Hyrule Field that bears striking resemblance to the Lon Lon Ranch in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

You can also find this area, named Ranch Ruins, in Breath of the Wild.

Mabe Village

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Mabe Village
Similarly, you can also find an unnamed village near the ranch that closely resembles the Mabe Village in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

Much like the ranch, you can find this area, named Mabe Village Ruins, in Breath of the Wild.


Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Scarecrow
Near Mabe Village, you can find scarecrows wearing a straw hat, a bandana, and a vest. These resemble the scarecrows, Bonooru and Pierre from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

As Long as You Have Enough Rupees

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - As Long as You Have Enough Rupees
Upon completing the Entrance Test quest, the instructor remarks that he will train you anytime—as long as you have enough rupees.

The line is a reference to Link: The Faces of Evil. In the game, you can find a character named Morshu that sells items. Interacting with him triggers a cutscene with the following dialogue:

"Lamp oil, rope, bombs - you want it, it's yours, my friend, as long as you have enough Rubies."

Horse God

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity - Horse God
When performing a Weak-Point Smash as the Great Fairies, the Horse God may appear from the flower instead to finish off the enemy.

Zelda's Lullaby

The tune that Terrako plays is called Zelda's Lullaby, a recurring song found in previous Zelda games.

Akkala Buns Recipe

HW - Akkala Buns Unlocked.png
In Breath of the Wild, Akkala Buns is a type of food that Link can buy at the East Akkala Stable. Unlike most food items, the game does not physically show what the food is and only describes it as being made of fresh ingredients.

Age of Calamity reveals the mystery behind this food item: Four Tireless Frogs are needed to create Akkala Buns!

Rumor of a Blupee Blupee on the battlefield

Much like in Breath of the Wild, you can find glowing blue rabbits called Blupees on the battlefield. They can be found in set locations randomly and will quickly run away when you get close to them.

How to Catch Blupees

Sheikah Text Translations

Gate Of Time Open

In the opening cinematic for the game, as the Diminutive Guardian whistles a tune and opens a portal, we can see Sheikah Text floating around the portal.

By rotating the text, we can see it spells out Gate of Time Open. This is a reference to how the Guardian will embark on a journey across time to help Princess Zelda save Hyrule.

Sheikah Tower

Sheikah Tower Decoded.png
As the game loads in from the title screen, we can catch a quick glimpse of some Sheikah Text along the top of the tower. The visible characters spell out ikah Tower.

It would be safe to assume that the complete text would say Sheikah Tower. In this game, the Central Tower serves as the main hub for the Champions before they embark on the different story missions and challenges.

Shutter Decoded.png
When you enter challenges that take place in shrines, you might notice some Sheikah Text on the bars of the entrance to the trial room. When rotated clockwise, these repeatedly spell out Shutter. This could refer to shutter gates which tend to open and close vertically.
