The Silver Lynel is considered the strongest foe in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and avoiding a confrontation with one seems to be the best plan throughout. It is not only the strongest enemy you’ll come across but it’s also a rare creature that appears when progressing far in the game. In this post, I’ll be explaining how to find Silver Lynels in TotK as well as providing all of their locations.
How to Find Silver Lynels in Tears of the Kingdom
To find a Silver Lynel in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you must kill one of them in its original White form, wait for a Bloodmoon, or trigger one, and then wait for a Silver Lynel to respawn.
In total, there are 13 Lynels to find and defeat on Hyrule’s Surface and in the Depths. However, not all of them are Silver. Here are all of their locations and coordinates in TotK:
