- — Phantom Ganon Armor description
The Phantom Ganon Armor is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a thematic body armor inspired by the Phantom Ganon granting Stealth Up. It is one of the three pieces of the "Phantom Ganon Armor" set along with the Phantom Ganon Skull and Greaves. It can be obtained upon "The Champions' Ballad" DLC pack 2 installation via the quest "EX Treasure: Dark Armor".
According to Misko's EX Journal 2, the armor and the rest of the set, alongside three other pieces of treasure, was stolen from Hyrule Castle during the Great Calamity by Misko. The armor set was hidden within the forests of Faron, with the body armor itself specifically being hidden inside an EX Treasure Chest on the riverbed under the Sarjon Bridge.
According to its description some believe that the armor and its set is inspirited by a dark entity matching Phantom Ganon's description.
Phantom Ganon Cape
Normally this armor features Phantom Ganon's cape. However certain head armor such as the Bokoblin Mask, Flamebreaker Helm, and Zant's Helmet will cause the cape to be removed when worn together with Phantom Ganon Armor. When worn together with the Hylian Hood its cape will replace the Phantom Ganon Armor's cape. When worn with Ravio's Hood the cape is replaced by the hood's scarf. The cape appears by default when the Phantom Ganon Skull is worn in-game however the left picture in promotional artwork depicts Link wearing the set cape-less which is not possible in-game though neither is the pose he's making. However the right picture is more accurate to how it looks in-game.
When all three pieces of the Phantom Ganon set are worn together they grant the "Stal" Disguise and Bone Atk. Up set bonuses just like the upgraded "Radiant Armor" set though without having to be upgraded as the Phantom Ganon set has the set bonues automatically by default. As a result it is a convenient alternative to the "Radiant Armor" set which must be purchased at the Gerudo Secret Club in Gerudo Town and upgraded.
Additionally like the "Radiant" and "Tingle" sets, the Phantom Ganon set will cause NPCs to react frightened or defensive around Link while wearing the set due to his monstrous appearance though react normally if spoken to.
