The Akkala Citadel Ruins are a location in Breath of the Wild.

Features and Overview

The Akkala Citadel Ruins are the remains of a fortress built to protect the Akkala Region from all conceivable threats.[1] However, the events of the second Great Calamity forced the remains of Hyrule's leaderless army to retreat to the Akkala Citadel, where they were assailed by Guardians under Calamity Ganon's control.[2] Unable to match the sheer power of the ancient Sheikah technology, the soldiers fell in battle, marking the decisive end to the Kingdom of Hyrule.[3] A century later, a traveler named Nell decided to visit the Akkala Citadel Ruins to pay respects for his relatives who fell during the battle. However, as the Akkala Citadel Ruins are still inhabited by Guardians, Nell is unable to complete his journey.

Atop a broken balcony on the northern side of the Ruins, Link can find several Arrows as well as a metal door covering a Rock under which a Korok can be found. On the wall above this point, a second Korok can be found hiding under a Rock beneath a pile of dead leaves. A third Korok can be found underneath a Rock beside a row of Cannons south of the Akkala Tower.
