The main character of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Princess Zelda, is one of the main directions of the game; however, she is not the best princess in BOTW. Link’s main goal in Breath of the Wild is to fight Ganon at Hyrule Castle, where Zelda has held him back for 100 years. Along the way, players will learn about another princess who helped Link and Zelda in their fight against Ganon — Myth.
Mifa was the princess of the kingdom of Zora before Link’s long sleep, and was also the champion of Zora. In the videos in Breath of the Wild, Mifa is shown to be very kind, a little quiet and very caring. During the Great Calamity, the Myth succumbed to the Ganon of Water rot in Vahruta, one of the four game Divine beasts, although many others were created. Her spirit helps Link navigate the Wah Ruta, and after Link defeats Ganon of Water Rot, she gives Link her healing power, known as the Grace of Myths.
When it comes to princesses in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Myth is without a doubt far superior to Zelda, especially when it comes to Link. This does not mean that Zelda is not the hero of the series. However, as the player learns more about Link’s past through his recovered memories, it’s easy to see the difference between the two princesses.
Why Mifa Is One of the Best Breath Of The Wild Characters
Link’s recovered memories of Zelda, who hasn’t aged in 100 years, often show Zelda in despair or full of frustration, which makes sense given her situation. However, she often takes out her anger on Link, especially at the beginning of their story. While she eventually gets closer to Link, Zelda has her own destiny to focus on. However, Link’s memories of the Myth, retold from both recovered memories and from the diary of Myths, are useful and full of love.
Mifa and Link met when Link was a child, and their friendship has grown since then. Years later, Myth became the champion of Zor, a fish-like race in the Zelda series, and Link became the champion of Hyrule, and they did not see each other for many years. When they reunite on Vah Ruth, Mifa tells Link that she will always protect him. Players will also find out during Breath of the Wild that Mytha made a set of Zora armor specifically for Link, which, according to Zora custom, Princess Zora makes for her future husband or someone she loved.
Judging by what the players see about the Myth, she is helpful, kind and protects Link. She sacrificed herself to try to save Hyrule, and gave Link her healing powers when he returned. The kindness and strength of the Myths make her an excellent princess in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, both in general and when it comes to Link. Players will have to wait for the game to continue to find out if Zelda can replace Myth as the main princess.
