Table of Contents

Aim For A Completion Rate Of 100%

The Completion Rate Is Displayed On The Map After Clearing

After clearing "Destroy Ganon," the completion rate will be displayed as a percentage on the Hyrule Map. Aiming for a 100% completion rate is one of the features of the post-game content. Since there is an almost endless amount of them, you can enjoy it for a while!

The Main Content That Affects Completion Rate

  • Collect all Korok Seeds
  • Visit every named location on the map
  • Clear all Ancient Shrines

Although clearing the Divine Beasts also contributes to the completion rate, the standard progression involves defeating the four Divine Beasts and then heading to Destroy Ganon, so we won't provide a detailed explanation of that here.

Collect All Korok Seeds

Collect all the Koroks hidden throughout Hyrule! There are a total of 900, and collecting them all will earn you a commemorative item from Hestu.

Collecting Everything Is An Endless Task

Collecting all 900 of them is a challenging task. One could consider setting a personal goal, such as completing the area around a tower within a certain time frame, and collecting Koroks gradually, as you can check the locations of Koroks in each area around nearby towers.

Visit Every Named Location On The Map

On each map, there are many "place names" that are not displayed when the map is initially unlocked, and only become visible once you physically visit those places. Since the display of these place names also affects the completion rate, it's necessary to explore each area by walking around.

Clear All 120 Ancient Shrines

If we don't include the DLC, there are a total of 120 shrines, and discovering them also affects the completion rate. Some can be found while exploring, while others require clearing specific challenges called Shrine Quests. Make sure to thoroughly explore each region and conquer all the shrines

Collect And Upgrade All Armor


You can become highly engaged in the collection and enhancement of armor. Some items can only be acquired through purchase, not solely by completing Shrine or Side Quests. Moreover, certain types of armor can be strengthened, but doing so requires gathering specific materials to achieve the maximum upgrade for each piece.

Complete The Hyrule Compendium

Take Pictures Of Materials And Monsters With The Camera!

With the Camera Rune, you can take pictures of weapons, armor, materials, monsters, and more, and register them as entries in the compendium. Although it does not affect completion percentage or anything, it becomes a completion element that you can get deeply involved in.

It Can Also Be Purchased

The Camera can also be purchased from Symin at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab. If you want to buy everything from scratch, you need a large amount of Rupees, but conversely, if you can earn enough Rupees, it is possible to achieve it.

A Compendium Of Formidable Enemies Will Be Available For Purchase After Clearing The Game

After defeating Ganon, if you visit Symin, he will start selling additional compendium entries. The entries mainly include bosses and rare formidable enemies, and the required Rupees for purchase will also increase. However, with this, it becomes possible to fill out all the entries in the compendium.

How To Defeat Calamity Ganon

Defeat Three Types Of Large Monsters

Talk To Kilton To Learn About Giant Monsters After Clearing The Game

After defeating Ganon, talking to Kilton will add the option to ask him about Monsters. You can then hear about these giant monsters from Kilton.

Defeat All 84 Types Of Monsters

There are three types of giant Monsters: Hinox, Stone Talus, and Molduga. Since there are a total of 84 of them scattered throughout Hyrule, defeating all of them becomes one of the challenging elements in the game.

You Will Get A Medal Of Honor After Defeating Them

When you defeat all the monsters of each type, you can obtain a medal of honor. Although it does not have any practical use, it serves as proof of your achievements and is an item that you should definitely have to fully enjoy the game.

Hyrule Castle Walkthrough

▲Remember the location where we defeated them by using a stamp or other means of note-taking.

Complete All Shrines/Side Quests

You Will Be Able To Check The Number Of Achievements After Clearing

You will be able to check the number of achievements after you clear (the game)

After defeating Ganon, the number of cleared Shrine Quests and Side Quests will be displayed in a list. Regarding Shrine Quests, even if you have cleared all the shrines, there may be cases where you have not achieved them, so please check and try to complete them.

Play DLC Contents

Various Contents Are Added Through DLC (Downloadable Content)

If you have not yet purchased the DLC, you may want to consider buying it when you play through the game. DLC alone can provide a lot of playtime, including equipment upgrades, additional Champions' story, and collecting new equipment.
