Zelda: Breath of the Wild features a number of terrifying foes – the Guardians and their light beam of doom have you running for your life in the game's early stages, and just as you get to grips with them, you then have the deadly centaur-like Lynel to deal with. Poor Link really has his work cut out.
For some players though, including YouTube user Peco, Guardians and Lynels are nothing but playthings that can be toyed with, humiliated, and absolutely obliterated. The video below is a montage of combat footage they've recorded, and while most of us would be pretty content after simply beating the game's toughest foes, you'll see that Peco takes things to a whole other level.
You're about to see Guardians be thrown around like frisbees, a moment where Link sits directly underneath a Lynel, provoking it into an attack that it simply can't pull off, and even a moment where Link (or Peco, we should say), causes utter destruction before walking away from an explosion Hollywood-style. This video has it all.
Impressive, huh? If only we could muster up just 1% of Peco's skill.
Let us know if you can pull off moves like this in the comments. We might even believe you.

Even Rocky had a montage.
Sorry but how does he get so many Fury Rushes when the enemy is not attacking?
Modded in my mind
I almost feel sorry for the Lynel. Almost.
Oh. I read the title as misremembering. That’s all I do after playing Age of Calamity, completely mess everything up.
Beautiful. Love the skills
I haven’t played the game, so I don’t understand how this is skillful? It looks like almost every encounter was won by using some kind of slowdown ability...wouldn’t it have been more impressive to do it in real time?
It's a vanilla glitch where you can make use of bullet time intended for mid-air archery, and instead force a flurry rush without having performed a dodge.
@BloodNinja play this game
@BloodNinja I mean yeah, if you don't know what you're looking at, of course it doesn't look impressive. So go play BoTW so you can be impressed.
@Indielink @Mystique I’m good. I’ve watched long plays and speed runs, but nothing I’ve seen has compelled me to want to play it.
@BloodNinja The slowdown ability is triggered when certain actions are executed at a perfect timing, which is not that difficult to master, but here the player is performing different of these actions in a very limited time.
Or... Use could just use an Ancient Arrow...
Nope, just glitches. This game is so broken
As soon as i saw the title i knew it was peco. He does stupid things and it's insane
@BloodNinja which is why I play games instead of watching others have the fun.
My now 11 year old makes me feel like an amateur when he does things like beat Ganon taking 0 damage and parrying every attack. My old fingers just can’t react fast enough to do the stuff this guy does.
@BloodNinja of course you don't understand if you haven't played it. What's your point?
@Clarice I wasn’t making a point, I was saying I don’t understand something. Quite the opposite, actually. Another poster already cleared it up for me, too, but you may have rushed past that in your rush to respond to me.
@Donutman I play games that look fun to me. This one didn’t look that fun so I didn’t play it.
@echoplex Thanks for that!
@BloodNinja Some of these are exploits (not exactly glitches) that some people have found a way to pull off in specific circumstances. Like the timing for some of them is pretty strict and leaves little room for error.
But in most cases, what's being showcased here is pretty specific and it's only for looking flashy, it's not super useful because some of these require specific setups to be able to pull them. I imagine it must've taken the person weeks to come up with and plan how to do these.
I've put almost 1000 hours into BotW across both Wii U and Switch and this is just outstanding. Still surprising me after all this time.
@russell-marlow Yeah! It’s interesting to see the outcome of in-game exploits. Makes for some fascinating results, at times.
I couldn't help but laugh at this smackdown ballet.
Such choreography and execution - simply amazing!
Looks like me playing Bubble Bobble.
Wow, it's as if Link has tapped into Ultra Instinct.
As soon as I saw the headline I knew it would be Peco footage. Been following him on YT for quite some time and all his videos are superb!
