One of the most popular aspects of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is building using the Ultrahand ability. To celebrate this feature, here are some of the craziest constructions we’ve seen so far!

Few could’ve foreseen how creative the Zelda community was going to be when it came to the game’s Ultrahand ability and Zonai tools. Shown in the pre-release material as a great way to build boats and planes to travel, Tears of the Kingdom users have gone above and beyond in the creation department.

From incredible displays of mechanical engineering to rather dicey, cruel, and unusual devices, we’ve seen Link whip up some remarkable constructions and builds. To see the best that the kingdom has concocted so far, check out the best designs below.

Thanks to ZeldaBuilds, players have recipes to be able to replicate players’ designs. It features an assortment of highly imaginative designs, and each one lists the desired materials to make it. As with any database, it’s sure to become more populated as time goes on, so keep checking back for more of these builds and how to make them.

Trojan Horse

Anyone who’s studied History at school will likely be aware of the tale of the Trojan Horse. A giant wooden horse sculpture crafted by the Greeks to sneakily infiltrate the city of Troy. One of the greatest tactical maneuvers in history has also been replicated in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. We have a feeling that Ganondorf might not be suckered in quite as easily, though.

The Korok Rotisserie Machine

It would be a great name for a film, but it turns out it’s also a sadistic implement of torment. With just a few sections of wood, some sticks, four fires, and five innocent, unsuspecting Koroks, one Zelda player came up with a truly awful and hilarious torture device.

The energy-saving big wheel

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom players have been trying to make their designs bigger and better. In steps Twitter user Liz with her ‘BIG WHEEL.’ The giant wheel only requires a single Zonai device, meaning it doesn’t eat up battery power, and it can traverse through almost anything, including bodies of water, at high speeds.

Best vehicle in the game

It’s a bold statement, but one that actually rings true in many respects. Out of all the weird and wonderful works of art we’ve seen in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, YouTuber Nassi came up with something so simple, but it can literally be driven anywhere with complete ease!

High-flying space rocket

The craftsmanship and forward-thinking required to manufacture a multi-stage space rocket blows our minds. But Reddit user bishlo did just that. As the rocket ascends, it goes through four separate stages of its launch phase before reaching an apex of at least a hundred feet in the air.

The Legend of Zelda: Pro Skater

Is a skateboard as efficient or as spectacular as some of the other entries on this list? Probably not. But at the end of the day, it’s Link riding around the Kingdom of Hyrule showing that he can pull off sick ollies like anyone else.


This one pretty much speaks for itself, to be honest. It’s incredible. A weapon of mass destruction has been created in the Orbital Strike Satellite Laser Cannon. A relatively simple construction by comparison, this build suddenly takes to the sky and rains down a bombardment of intense laser fire on its target.
