Zelda Tears of the Kingdom: Master Cycle Guide

Our Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Master Cycle guide will showcase the rumors and theories surrounding the Master Cycle!

Zelda Tears of the Kingdom has brought many different ways for players to travel across the lands, including creations that have baffled many people. But the iconic Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Master Cycle is nowhere to be seen here; therefore, players might want to know why the idea was scrapped or if there was ever an idea. 

Important: Players should know that the Master Cycle never made it to Tears Of The Kingdom despite several rumors.
Key Takeaways
  • The Master Cycle is a motorbike that made waves when released in Breath Of The Wild and was used to travel around the lands. 
  • The primary way to get the Master Cycle was by completing the Champion’s Ballad DLC, which was received as a reward. 
  • While there were rumors amongst the community members and gamers that there might be a release for the Master Cycle in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, it never got released. 
  • While being in the Breath Of The Wild, the Master Cycle would be able to up the travel speed, and players could even one-wheel it. 
  • However, with the release of the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, the Ultrahand ability also got released. 
  • The Ultrahand Ability allowed players to stick items together with other objects, granting them endless freedom. 
  • There were a few alternatives to the Master Cycle, which included people creating unicycles, cars, hot air balloons, and even mechas. 

What Is The Master Cycle? 

First, let’s figure out what the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Master Cycle used to be. Essentially, it is a motorbike you could attain, and it would become your main mode of transportation across the land. 

  • However, the main caveat was that the Master Cycle was only made available in Breath of the Wild and was not brought over into the Tears of the Kingdom, which was a major shock to many players.

  • The main way to get your hands on the master cycle in Breath Of The Wild was by completing The Champion’s Ballad DLC, one of the final parts of Breath Of The Wild, which was handed out as a reward. 
  • Before being handed out as a reward to Breath Of The Wild players, Eiji Aonuma proposed incorporating a master cycle into the Breath Of The Wild game.
  • The idea was rejected but eventually got accepted as a way to grant it to the players for completing the DLC and could be kept for as long as the players wanted. 

Can You Find The Master Cycle In Tears Of The Kingdom? 

As can be said before, the Master Cycle Zero was hands down one of the easiest ways to get around from one place to another in the previous installment. 

  • Not only was it the main mode of transportation, but it also made traveling much faster than simply running on foot, and it would save a ton of time. 
  • Before Tears of the Kingdom’s release, it seemed like rumors were going on, especially in the popular Reddit forums discussing whether the Cycle would appear as a dungeon or a reward in Tears of the Kingdom. 
  • However, as it turned out, at the time of release, there had not been any official discussion on whether the devs would bring the Master Cycle into Tears of the Kingdom, and they eventually decided to leave it behind.

Now, one of the main reasons why Nintendo might have decided to leave the Master Cycle back in Breath Of The Wild is simply the ability to create new and improved ways to travel around the area, including the Ultrahand ability.

  • The Ultrahand ability allows you to take any item you want to stick to another object or item, and you can pick up the object and then stick it. 
  • This has single-handedly allowed players to create their wildest versions of vehicles and gadgets to get around. 

Master Cycle In The Breath Of The Wild 

Now, one of the main things that you might want to know is the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Master Cycle Origin, as the master cycle never actually managed to make it into this version.

Still, it used to belong to the original Breath Of The Wild, which was released back in 2017. Below are a few things you could do when you get your hands on the cycle in Breath Of The Wild. 

  • One of the most fun things that you were able to do with the Master Cycle was you could launch it into the air, and then your character would be able to board the cycle while it was airborne, and it would look cool as hell.

  • Other than this, if you managed to aim your Master Cycle while being mid-air, it would instantly cause your character to go into Bullet Time, and if you managed to get off the bike while in this state, Link would end up doing a flip

  • Apart from this, typically, in Breath Of The Wild, Link would take fall damage if he ran out of stamina while being mid-air, but if he was on the bike and ran out of stamina, he would not take fall damage and would instantly land as he would

  • One-wheeling. That’s all. The Master Cycle would allow Link to look like an absolute badass while riding the bike as usual since he could one-wheel it. 

Alternatives To The Master Cycle 

Just because you don’t have access to the Tears of the Kingdom Master Cyclethat doesn’t mean that you now have to only move around the lands on your foot alone, as the Ultrahand ability has brought the option to stick items and objects to one another. And with the never-ending creative imagination that the players have, here are a few alternatives that you can try out instead of the Master Cycle. 

  • Now, one of the main creations that were found on the Zeldabuilds was dubbed as the Master Cycle 2.0, which is seemingly a second version of the original Master Cycle, and to create it, all that you need is two small wheels, one stabilizer as well one steering stick.

The wheels are connected to the bottom of the cycle so you can ride it out, while the steering stick and stabilizer’s functions are self-explanatory. 

  • You can also create cars such as Compact ATVs, which can be made using four giant wheels and a controller that can be attached and help drive the vehicle forward. 
  • Many other creations like uni-cycles, planes, mechas that can be used to defeat bosses, battleships, and hot air balloons can be made. These can be made through Auto-build
