Find the ferocious beast Princess Zelda is riding to scare the people of Hyrule.

The Beast and the Princess is a side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that is associated with the Potential Princess Sightings quest. This quest will have you debunk a major rumor that is tarnishing Princess Zelda’s image among common people.

In this one, you’ll investigate a strange beast that Princess Zelda has been rumored to have ridden. Word has spread, and everyone is curious to know what this beast is.

This is where you, the hero of Hyrule, come in. It is your job to get to the bottom of the matter and investigate this rumor.

Today, we’ll be teaching you all about this side quest. How you can unlock it and complete The Beast and the Princess in Zelda: TotK.

Talk to Penn at the New Serenne Stable

To start The Beast and the Princess side quest, you need to become a reporter for the Lucky Clover Gazette. This can be done by talking to Tyrasi in the Lucky Clover Gazette office near the Rito Village entrance.

Once you have acquired the Potential Princess Sightings side quest from Tyrasi, make your way to the New Serenne Stable in the Hyrule Field. It is near the Sinakawak Shrine and west of the Lookout Landing Skyview Tower.

Once you reach there, talk to Penn, who will tell you about a rumor about Princess Zelda riding a vicious beast. This will start the quest and add it to your journal.

Find Dondon farm in Faron Region

There are various ways to complete this quest. You can either follow the clues by visiting various stables and talking to NPCs, or you can follow our straightforward solution.

The hint that you get from Penn is that you can find Princess Zelda and the beast in the subtropical region of Hyrule, to the south. The area in question is the Lakeside Stable.

You can reach this stable by fast traveling to Joju-u-u shrine (1550, -3531, 0058) or you can follow our guide to its precise location in the Faron region.

Once you reach the Lakeside Stable, talk to an old man named Shay. He will be standing next to a bonfire and tell you of a beast sanctuary across the gorge.

Follow his directions and climb a cliff to gain some altitude. Jump and glide across the gorge to reach the other side. This region has a lot of rain and lightning strikes. Make sure to remove any gear that can attract lightning.

Once you reach the beast farm, talk to Cima, and she will tell you that these mysterious beasts are none other than Dondons. They are pacifists and don’t harm others. Princess Zelda rode one in the sanctuary, and that’s how the rumor started.

This will complete The Beast and the Princess side quest in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Quest Rewards

Penn will appear at the spot and confirm the story. He will reward you with some rupees (50-100) depending on your progress in the Potential Princess Sightings side quest.

You will also get one step closer to acquiring the complete Froggy Gear to survive the slippery slopes of the Faron region.
