"This medicinal plant is known for its sharp thorns and for the fruit it bears. The fruit contains a compound that increases attack power when cooked into a dish."
— In-game description

Mighty Thistles are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are herbs growing in several areas such as Kaysa's Great Fairy Fountain in Tabantha Frontier. Link can cook with them to create "Mighty" dishes which raise attack temporarily when consumed. They can also be cooked with monster parts and Bladed Rhino Beetles to create Mighty Elixirs. They can be roasted with fire or volcanic temperatures to create Roasted Mighty Thistles.

Below are a list of effects they produce when cooked. Mighty thistles slightly raise attack power, but pale in comparison to the effect of higher quality mighty food such as those of Mighty Porgy or Mighty Bananas. Unless a critical cook is achieved, cooking 1-4 mighty thistles only produces a level 1 boost, with 5 required for a level 2 boost.
