Hyrule Compendium Entry
Yiga Blademasters are the elite soldiers of the Yiga Clan. They can be found patrolling the Yiga Clan Hideout. If Link is spotted intruding the hideout, they will close all doors and exits while calling in back up. Yiga Blademasters attack with Windcleavers that send blasts of air at long distances. They can also create fissures that produce updrafts that Link can use to glide before a stone pillar emerges from them. A shot to the head with the Bow can stun Yiga Blademasters, opening them for attacks. When defeated, they flee while leaving behind their Windcleaver and Mighty Bananas. After defeating Master Kohga, Yiga Blademasters will randomly appear all around Hyrule attempting to assassinate Link.

- "These are the elite soldiers of the Yiga Clan. They favor the windcleaver blade and are extremely agile despite their bulky build. At this Yiga Clan rank, they have mastered a technique that allows them to manipulate the very earth. By striking the ground, they can create stone pillars and blasts of air." — Hyrule Compendium (Breath of the Wild)
- "It turned out that the heirloom thieves who struck Impa's manor belonged to the Yiga Clan. The incident was revenge for Dorian attempting to leave the guild of assassins. After you solved the problem, you returned the heirloom and discovered a new ancient shrine." — N/A (Breath of the Wild)
