Epona, the horse that has appeared in multiple games of the Zelda series, can be summoned into the game by scanning either the "Link [Twilight Princess]" or "Link (Super Smash Bros. series)" Amiibo. There is no other way to get the Epona, so if you want the Epona, consider buying an Amiibo.

Cannot Change Equipment Or Mane

When bringing Epona to a stable, the receptionist's response is noticeably different due to its special status as a horse. However, its equipment and saddle cannot be modified, putting it at a disadvantage compared to other horses. It may be quite disappointing that Epona cannot wear the ancient horse gear, which would have provided a significant advantage.

The Reaction Of The Stable Owner Is Also Different

When you bring Epona to a stable, it will receive a distinctive reaction from the stable owner that distinguishes it from other wild horses. The owner will express surprise and ask, "Isn't this the legendary Epona?" which adds to its sense of exclusivity.

There Are Wild Horses That Resemble Epona

Among wild Horses, there are Horses that look like Epona. Also, the body is brown, but the color is slightly different, and there is no horse of the same color in the wild horse. It can be said that it is actually the top of Epona because there is a Horse and it is possible to replace the Horse equipment.
