- Fans of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are using the game’s physics and Zonai devices to create impressive contraptions and interact with NPCs.
- A player attempted to trap a cow in a box made of Zonai devices, but the box unexpectedly shot forward and caused chaos in Hyrule Field.
- Similar glitches have been found when attempting to trap human NPCs or other creatures, indicating a physics problem in the game.
An inventive Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player attempted to trap a cow in a box made out of Zonai devices. The short Tears of the Kingdom clip showed the player trying to capture the animal two times inside the box, with a surprising twist each time.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is a game known for its experimentation. Fans have taken full advantage of the game’s physics and Zonai devices to create some of the most impressive contraptions in modern gaming. Fans have used the physics in Tears of the Kingdom to create elevators, flying machines, hovercrafts, and everything in between. It wasn’t long before fans started using the physics in the game to interact with the animals and other NPCs in the world. There are countless videos online of players torturing Koroks by flinging them from one area of Hyrule to another or shooting them up into space with a rocket-powered contraption.

On the Hyrule Engineering subreddit, Reddit user UdgeTime attempted to trap a cow in Hyrule Field inside a box made out of Zonai devices and was surprised by the result. In the clip, Link can be seen using his Ultrahand ability to slowly guide the cow into the makeshift container. After Link manages to trap the animal, the box shoots forward, bouncing off the ground high in the air. The box swings back and forth across the field, even managing to knock down a random structure in its wake. The clip continues with a second attempt, ending with the box flying down a hill once the cow gets inside.
It appears that the glitch shown in the video is due to a strange physics problem with some NPCs in Tears of the Kingdom. The same thing happens with human NPCs, as shown in a clip posted by Reddit user Accomplished_Oil_781. In the video, Link is shown trying to trap Beedle, one of the most famous shopkeepers in the Zelda series, inside a contraption made out of railings. The instant Link manages to fuse all the railings around him, Beedle and the entire structure zoom forward, never to be seen again.
Trapping NPCs inside boxes and contraptions seems to be a trend lately, as one Tears of the Kingdom player attempted to trap a Gleeok in a box. In that case, the box didn’t shoot forward or fly in the air; the Gleeok broke out of it with every attempt.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available on Nintendo Switch.
