The Wind Waker

Tingle's Comment



A Warship!

Watch out for incoming cannon ball-bombs!

In The Wind Waker, Warships can be sink with three hits from the Cannon, usually leaving a Light Ring and a Treasure Sphere. Sailing near a Warship will prevent them from attacking Link. Their attacks can also damage other Warships and enemies. A golden Warship can be found in Needle Rock Isle, protecting a Triforce Chart.[2]

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors Legends

In Hyrule Warriors Legends, Warships do not appear as enemies, instead, they are used to destroy Stone Heads blocking the way. To do so, a Warrior must use the Hammer on a peg next to the Warship in order to make it shoot, destroying the stone in the process.
