The Whip is the reward for defeating the Stalmaster inside the Ancient Cistern.
Hold down the ZR Button on the Right Joy-Con to bring up the Items menu. Point the controller at the Whip and let go of the ZR Button to equip it.
Once you have equipped the Whip, press the ZR Button to use it. Use the Right Joy-Con to swing the Whip at a certain direction.
If you are using button-only controls, use the right thumbstick to control the Whip and swing it at a certain direction.
Inside the Ancient Cistern, you can use the Whip to activate the valves to open up the water spouts. This opens up shortcuts for easy backtracking and reach the boss dungeon room.
The Whip is used to activate unreachable switches inside the Ancient Cistern. It is also used to activate the valves to open up the water spouts.
Certain enemies such as the Bokoblins may carry a shining object. You can use the Whip to steal the shiny object to get a material.
This is also used inside the Ancient Cistern to steal the small key from the Bokoblin in the B1 level of the dungeon.
In addition to switches, you can also use the Whip to flip over water lilies. Doing so allows you to use the plant as a platform or access the area beneath it.
The Whip is also used as a rope to reach new areas. Look for a hook-like structure and use the weapon to swing from one area to another.
