Location and Uses
Breath of the Wild
The Champion's Tunic is obtained from Impa in Kakariko Village after Link relives one of his Recovered Memories. The Champion's Tunic mirrors the signature blue cloth worn by the other Champions, which are decorated with the symbol of the respective tool each Champion must wield against Calamity Ganon. As Link is the Hylian Champion, it is marked with the silhouette of the Master Sword. According to its description, it is only given to individuals who have won the respect of the Royal Family of Hyrule.
When worn, the Champion's Tunic gives Link the ability to see an enemy's life gauge. The Champion's Tunic has the highest potential defense of any Armor present in the game, with a maximum defense of 32. It cannot be Dyed at the Kochi Dye Shop, nor can it be sold. The Champion's Tunic is not part of any Armor Set, though it consistently appears matched with the Hylian Trousers in promotional media, in each of Link's Recovered Memories and at the end of the game if Link has recovered all of his lost Memories. Similarly, the two aformentioned pieces of Armor are also paired with the Hylian Hood when Link is seen on horseback in promotional media.
