Location and Uses

The Legend of Zelda

TLoZ Bait Sprite.png

In The Legend of Zelda, Food, also called Enemy Bait,[1] is an item used to lure enemies. It can be bought from various Merchants scattered across Hyrule. Placing Food in an area where enemies are present distracts them as they gather near the bait. This allows Link to pass a crowded path or easily defeat the enemies. Within the Demon labyrinth, a hungry Goriya requires Link to give up some Food before he can pass.

In Breath of the Wild, Food is a type of consumable item that Link uses to restore health and receive buffs. It can be made by combining up to five Materials found in Hyrule and cooking them together in a Cooking Pot. Only certain Materials combined can yield useful Food, and the potency of a Food's effects (e.g. the amount of Hearts or Stamina recovered) can differ based on how many Materials Link used in the recipe. Failed combinations yield Dubious Food, which only restores one Heart, or a Failed Experiment which restores 1/4 of a Heart. Each article of Food, including duplicates, occupies a separate slot in the Pouch.
