- "A very energetic cricket. Cook it with monster parts to create a stamina-boosting elixir."
- — In-game description
Restless Crickets are items from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Link can obtained them by capturing crickets on the Great Plateau. Link can cook with them with Monster Parts or Ancient Materials to create Energizing Elixirs though cooking them alone or with other ingredients will result in Dubious Food. Restless Crickets can be found usually in the long grasses of the Great Plateau, Hyrule Field and East Necluda regions, by using a sharp edged weapon to cut long grass away where crickets sometimes rest beneath. They can sometimes be found under rocks even in odd locations such as Goron City.
The "Energizing" effect Restless Crickets impart to Energizing Elixirs is inferior to Energetic Rhino Beetles. However Restless Crickets are far more common and easier to catch.
