Korok Seeds are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][2]

Location and Uses

Breath of the Wild

Korok Seeds are given by Koroks when they are found throughout Hyrule.[3] They possess a distinct smell.[1] When Link receives his first Seed, he is asked to return it to the Korok Hestu.[4] Korok Seeds are actually the beads used in Hestu's Maracas. When first found, Hestu asks Link to retrieve his Maracas from a group of Bokoblins nearby. After Link returns them, Hestu realizes the Seeds were taken by the other Koroks as part of a prank.[5][6]

In exchange for Korok Seeds, Hestu will add one slot to Link's Weapon, Bow, or Shield stashes.[7] Link can fully upgrade his inventory with only 441 Korok Seeds. If all 900 Seeds are returned to Hestu, he will reward Link with a "gift of friendship."[8][9]
