Description
These fearsome monsters have lived in Hyrule since ancient times. Their ability to breathe fire makes White-Maned Lynels among the toughest of the species; each one of their attacks is an invitation to the grave. There are so few eyewitness accounts of this breed because a White-Maned Lynel is not one to let even simple passersby escape with their lives.

White-Maned Lynels are the white and black-colored variant of Lynels. They have been in Hyrule since ancient times and only a few amount of witnesses of this breed survive to tell the tale.[1][2] Like other Lynels, it will often refrain from attacking for a short period of time after spotting Link, instead opting to stare down its opponent. However, they start their battle by roaring out loudly and slamming its Weapon down to causing a fiery explosion around itself. Being a higher tier variant from the Blue-Maned Lynels, it is known to carry a stronger set of "Savage" Lynel gear, such as a Savage Lynel Sword, Savage Lynel Shield, Savage Lynel Bow, Savage Lynel Spear, and a Savage Lynel Crusher.

In Master Mode, they carry "Mighty" Lynel gear. One also appears on the Great Plateau carrying a Savage Lynel Crusher and Savage Lynel Bow.
