Strongest In The World – Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom

Take down a Lynel and fuse its body parts to your weapon to prove yourself the Strongest in the World.

Strongest in the World is a side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that you can obtain from the Akkala region.

Although you can select this quest at any given point in the game, it is recommended that you start it during the later stages of the game. The side quest revolves around Link’s weapon-fusing ability, which intrigues Chabi, who is a Hylian traveler in Zelda.

She dreams about creating weapons out of Lynel Horn. Since she is not able to do it by herself, she asks Link to help her fulfill her dream. In this guide, we will tell you how to start this quest and defeat a Lynel to complete it.

Talk to Chabi at the East Akkala Stable

Make your way to the eastern parts of Deep Akkala to reach the East Akkala Stable. If you have taken our recommendation to attempt this side quest in the latter stages of the game, you will be able to fast travel there.

Simply fast travel to the Jochi-iu Shrine. The stables are just nearby. You will find Chabi at the back of the stables. Speak with her to start the “Strongest in the World” quest.

She will assign you a task to craft a weapon from Lynel Horn or Mace, and since this side quest doesn’t have any specific requirements, you will start the quest as soon as you talk to Chabi at the coordinates (4205, 2763, 0126) as marked on the map above.

Find and Defeat a Red Lynel

Since Chabi wants you to craft a weapon from Lynel’s horn, you must defeat the creature called Lynel to acquire the necessary material to use your weapon-fusing ability.


Carry a lot of arrows and health-restoring meals before you start the fight. Make sure to save before the fight to avoid the long trek in case you die.

Lynel is one of the hardest mini-bosses to defeat in Hyrule. It is a mythical creature that comes in different forms. The one you will be fighting will be the Red Lynel, which is found in the North Akkala Valley, as shown on the map below:


You can fight any Lynel you want. However, we recommend sticking with Red Lynel if this is your first fight against this monster, as Silver ones are nearly impossible to defeat for beginners.

Lynels have multiple attacks, including arrow attacks, if you try to fight them from afar. Once you go near the Lynel, it will charge at you with its horns. This attack can be dodged by jumping to the side.

Lynels also use sword attacks at close range and do long swings while running. You can jump backward to avoid these attacks and activate Flurry Rush. This is your best chance to inflict as much damage as possible.

Make sure to hit the Lynel in the face with an arrow to stun it. Climb its back and start hitting it with your most powerful weapon.


Your weapon doesn’t take any damage when you are on top of the Lynel.

Once Lynel is defeated, Collect 1x Lynel Saber Horn, 1x Lynel Mace Horn, 1x Soldier’s Claymore, 1x Lynel Box, and 1x Lynel Hoof, the mini-boss drops.

Use your fuse ability to combine one of the weapons with the Lynel Horn and return to the East Akkala. Talk to Chabi at the stable to complete the Strongest in the World side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Quest Rewards

This quest has multiple rewards, depending on which Lynel part you used.

  • Purple Rupee (50 Rupees) for Red Lynel
  • Silver Rupee (100 Rupees) for Blue-Maned Lynel
  • Gold Rupee (300 Rupees) for White-Maned or Silver Lynel
