Blood Moon Conditions

Appears Once Every Seven Days In-Game Time

occurs every 7 days in-game time

Red Moon occurs after 7 days in-game time, at 12:00 AM. In the world of TOTK, time flows differently as 1 minute in real-time is equivalent to 1 hour in in-game time. Therefore, a Red Moon event will occur once 168 real-time minutes (or 2 hours and 48 minutes) . Time spent in menus and other non-gameplay activities does not count towards the 168 minutes needed for the Red Moon to occur, so it may take longer than that in real life.

Time Does Not Pass When Resting At A Campfire Or Stable

Even if you choose to start a new day from 5:00 AM while resting at a campfire or a horse stable, it will not count towards the time required for the Red Moon to occur. However, if it is already certain that the Blood Moon will occur on that day, resting across the date change will trigger the Blood Moon event.
