Dracozu River is a location in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Features and Overview

Dracozu River is located in the Faron Grasslands. It is most easily accessed from the Damel Forest. It is a meandering river typified by the presence of numerous, serpentine Dragon statues along its banks, and by its dense, tropical forest surroundings. The location is tied to the Shrine Quest, "The Serpent's Jaws", given to Link by Kass, who is found in Pagos Woods, in the form of an Ancient Song.[2] The river itself is shaped like a dragon.[3] The waterway is patrolled by a couple of swimming Blue Lizalfos. When including the raised eastern bank above of the river, opposite the western Damel Forest, there are a handful of fruit trees ripe for picking. Although unseen, during the day, the air is loud with the drone of buzzing cicada and the cackling of tropical birds. At night, however, the sound of chirping crickets fills the air, pierced periodically by the hoot of an owl.

At the southernmost tip of the river is a submerged Metal Chest, containing a Purple Rupee. Another chest rewards the same prize; this one can be found upriver, underwater, at the river bend nearest to Dracozu Lake.
