Anyway, let’s discover the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hinox locations, shall we?
What are the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hinox types?
There are several types of hinox, the red, blue, and black hinox are the ones you find most commonly across Hyrule. However, you can also find the stalnox roaming about, which are the living skeletons of hinox. Each of the monsters boasts a large health pool, with the former two offering a wall of 600 health and 800 health, respectively, while the latter two hinox types boast a whopping 1,000 health. Be sure to stock up on arrows!
The rewards upon defeating these beasts vary, but more often than not, you receive hinox guts and toenails, which is very gross but great in elixir crafting. The main article here is the sought after hinox Horn which can cause some devastating damage if fused with the correct weapon combination.
What are the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hinox locations?
You can find hinox all over the surface of Hyrule on the map below, more often than not taking a pleasant nap and not disturbing anyone. Well, until you awake them like an angry Snorlax.
You can also find the hinox roaming around in the depths on our map below. If that sounds like a dark and scary place, check our Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom depths guide, which hopefully shines some light on the situation.
Tips for battling Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hinox
To defeat the hinox, it’s a little obvious, aim for the eye with your trusty, and probably makeshift, bow and arrow. Another method to take down these menacing cyclops is to go for the legs with your melee weapon. Though you won’t be pulling off as much damage as an eye shot, still, damage is always damage.
Some hinox have shin guards that prevent melee hits, although you can burn most of them away, leaving them open to ground-based attacks. Combining eyeshots, body hits, and shin attacks will take down these one-eyed monsters. It’s nice to hear “go for the shins!” as genuine advice outside of a children’s football match.
