Urbosa is a character in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. She is from the Gerudo tribe and is one of the Champions of Hyrule.


Strong and courageous, Urbosa is determined to protect Hyrule in the upcoming battle with the Calamity Ganon. Urbosa is very close to Zelda - becoming genuinely concerned for the latter's well-being, as well as respecting Zelda's dedication to her duties. She is aware of the long history that Calamity Ganon once took on a form of a Gerudo, which she greatly resented, which was the reason she accepted her calling to be among the four Champions and wanted to ensure that her people remain loyal to the Royal Family, if anything happened to her. She holds a deep respect and looks up to Nabooru, who opposed Ganon and was responsible for the positive influence she had on the Gerudo, which were reformed from being a reclusive gang of thieves to living normal lives and engaging in foreign trade with other tribes as a result, and states that Divine Beast Vah Naboris was named after her.

Urbosa has a penchant for teasing others, particularly Princess Zelda and Link, as seen when she startles the princess awake with Urbosa's Fury, with Zelda's reaction with added amusement.


Urbosa lived in Gerudo Town with the other members of her race. She was recruited by King Rhoam and Princess Zelda to become the Gerudo Champion and pilot of the Divine Beast Vah Naboris as a protector of Hyrule. Urbosa was able to control her Divine Beast with relative ease. Unfortunately the Gerudo warrior was killed by the Thunderblight Ganon during the Great Calamity. Her soul remained trapped inside of the corrupted Divine Beast for 100 years.

Urbosa's soul was freed after Link had slayed the thunder demon, she gives Link her special ability Urbosa's Fury and tells him to ask Zelda that she shouldn't burden herself with Urbosa's death. She was later seen firing her Divine Beast's laser towards Hyrule castle to help weaken the Calamity Ganon.
