The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild streamer ‘Gv_Mimi’ has managed to defeat the final boss encounter against Ganon using their real-life Ocarina to control Link’s moveset and abilities.

Part of the vast open world of Breath of the Wild means that players can fast-track their final meeting with Ganon. As a result, speedrunners all over the internet were quick to upload videos of them diving straight into the action against the big bad. Some even choosing to take Ganon on with no clothing equipped and a measly stick for a weapon.

In a great throwback to another beloved Zelda title, one player has beaten Ganon with an Ocarina in a homage to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. 

Enter streamer gv_mimi, who goes by Mimi. Mimi is a variety streamer who spends most of their time streaming all things Breath of the Wild. From challenges and speedruns, Mimi is clearly an expert when it comes to all things Zelda.

Since March 2023, Mimi has been working through beating Breath of the Wild by mapping notes out on their Ocarina, with each note programmed to Link’s moveset and abilities. Since starting last month, Mimi has been updating their fans and viewers on their progress.
