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

Features and Overview

The 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]

A metallic Treasure Chest containing a Purple Rupee sits submerged at the southernmost tip of the River. A second Treasure Chest rewards the same prize; this one can be found upriver, underwater, at the river bend nearest to Dracozu Lake.


Minor Enemies



The Dracozu River's name is derived from draco, the Latin word for "dragon".
