These fearsome monsters have lived in Hyrule since ancient times. Compared to the standard Lynel, those with blue manes are much tougher and are equipped with much stronger weapons. Facing off against a Lynel is ill-advised, but if you must, be sure you're well prepared.

Blue-Maned Lynels are the blue-colored variant of the red-colored Lynels. They have been in Hyrule since ancient times.[1] Like other Lynels, they will often refrain from attacking for a short period of time after spotting Link, instead opting to stare down its opponent. Being a higher tier variant from red-colored Lynels, they carry "Mighty" set of Lynel gear, such as a Mighty Lynel Sword, Mighty Lynel Shield, Mighty Lynel Bow, Mighty Lynel Spear, and a Mighty Lynel Crusher. In Master Mode, they carry the weaker Lynel gear set.
