The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

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.
