- "The ruthless Usurper King of the Twilight Realm wore a helmet much like this one... It's a rather rare find."
- — Zant's Helmet description in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Zant's Helmet is a recurring item in the The Legend of Zelda series. It refers to the retractable helmet worn by Zant from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It is a item worn by him in Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it is a piece of armor that Link can wear.
In Breath of the Wild, Zant's Helmet is a thematic body armor for Link, inspired by Zant's helmet in Twilight Princess. It can be obtained upon "The Champions' Ballad" DLC pack 2 installation. It is located in the swamp in the north section of Tobio's Hollow in the Dueling Peaks Region. Similar to the Thunder Helm's immunity to Lightning, Zant's Helmet gives Link immunity to freezing.
According to the side quest relating to it as well as Misko's EX Journal 2, the helmet was originally located at Hyrule Castle as part of a historical line of clothing, but the bandit Misko stole it and hid it near Tobio's Hollow.
Zant's Helmet is based on the unnamed retractable helmet worn by Zant in Twilight Princess. During the development of the game, Zant's helmet was modeled after a bamboo shoot.
