Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Eventide Island is a location from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a moderately sized island in the southeast corner of the Necluda Sea. It is home to many enemies, including Bokoblins, Moblins, Stalkoblins, Fire Chuchus, and a Blue Hinox. The first time, there is a band of Bokoblins and a Boat Oar.

Eventide Island is the setting of the Shrine quest "Stranded on Eventide", automatically received by Link once he first arrives there. Korgu Chideh challenges Link to retrieve and return three orbs to three different alters without his weapons, shields, and food. Upon completion of the quest, the Korgu Chideh Shrine emerges from the ground at the top of a mountain on the island. Later on in the game, a Rito appears on the island and provides mini-games involving the paraglider.

Horse on Eventide

Breath of the Wild Side Quests Stranded on Eventide (with Epona)

Epona and Link "Stranded on Eventide"

Through the Horse on a Raft trick, Link can transport any registered horse to Eventide as wild horses even fully bonded ones move around to much to make the long trip to Eventide. However doing this will test Link's Rafting skills and requires a lot of patience. This allows Link to have the company of his horse while stranded though he must ensure it is not killed either by enemies or accidentally. However the island's size makes using a horse more of a simple novelty, though ensuring its survival can serve as an optional additional challenge for Link to overcome or simply give Link the option to travel around on horseback while stranded or use them as a vaulting off point to slow motion aerial attack enemies and animals with his bow in order to better conserve arrows by ensuring his shots count. His horse can also kill weaker enemies by trampling on them, allowing Link to save his limited supply of weapons for the islands stronger enemies.

Master Mode

Playing on Master Mode, any enemy with a higher tier gets upgraded, resulting in the player adopting a more defensive manner of combat. Aside from obtaining Octorok balloons and fighting lower-tier enemies to access one of the orbs, the best option is to avoid fighting any group. The, now, Black Hinox, requires you to subtly glide on top of it to claim the orb, as its health is too high for all available weapons to be of any help, especially without an attack buff.

Possible inspiration

The island is likely a nod to Koholint Island, the main setting for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Toronbo Beach shares a name with Koholint's Toronbo Shores, and the island's highest pinnacle is Koholit Rock, which resembles Koholint's Tal Tal Peak, with the Wind Fish's Egg on top. In addition, the Shrine Quest requires that Link not use any items save for those found on the island, similar to how Link was stranded on Koholint Island without any of his weapons and equipment, and had to find substitutes.
