Forbidden City Entry is a Main Quest in Breath of the Wild.[1]


"Forbidden City Entry" gives Link access to Gerudo Town in the Gerudo Desert. As it only allows women inside,[2] the guards do not let Link in.[3] Link can begin the Quest by speaking to Benja right outside of Gerudo Town. Benja tells him of a man who is able to sneak into the Town.[4] He also explains that the man frequently travels between the Town and the Kara Kara Bazaar.[5]

To find the rumored man, Link must go to the Kara Kara Bazaar and ask around about a suspicious male merchant. If Link asks Maike about the man, she suggests that he asks one of the Hylian merchants at the Bazaar instead.[6] If Link asks Emri about the man, she tells him that she can recall a female merchant who frequents the General Store.[7][8] If Link asks Robsten about the man, he also recalls seeing a Hylian girl at the General Store.[9] If Link asks Ripp about the man, she recalls a particular female merchant at the Inn who wore Gerudo clothes.[10][11] Ripp reasons that the merchant is probably still at the Bazaar because Divine Beast Vah Naboris is scaring people from traveling.[12] If Link goes to the General Store and asks Shaillu about a sneaky guy, she mentions a Hylian girl who likes to relax on the roof.[13]

Link can find the mysterious Hylian woman on the roof of the General Store, who turns out to be a merchant named Vilia. Link must compliment Vilia's appearance in order to purchase the Gerudo Set for 600 Rupees.[14] After buying it, Link changes into the Gerudo clothing as Vilia looks away.[15] When Vilia sees Link in his new clothes, she says that Link is a "good-lookin' gal" and doubts that anyone would suspect that he is a man.[16] Vilia also explains that the Gerudo Set helps with the scorching Temperatures in the Gerudo Desert,[17] referring to its heat-resistant Set Bonus. While wearing the full Set, Link appears to be female to everyone and can walk into Gerudo Town undisturbed. After walking into the Town, the Quest is completed.
