Runes are special items in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are functions added to the Sheikah Slate and Link can use them from it. Each rune is obtained from a Sheikah Monk upon completion of a trial in his Shrine found across Hyrule. Link upgrades the Sheikah Slate with a new Rune Ability by inserting the Sheikah Slate into a pedestal.
