A dedicated fan of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has showcased their creativity by crafting a unique Korok figurine using clay, offering a surprising twist by adorning it with a mask made of meat instead of the traditional leaf mask. The Koroks, beloved for their endearing leaf masks and mischievous nature, have become iconic characters since their debut in The Wind Waker.

These charming creatures play a significant role in both Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom, acting as sources of collectible Korok Seeds used to enhance Link’s inventory. Their adorable appearances and helpfulness in gameplay have motivated players to embark on quests across Hyrule, seeking out these elusive beings with their distinctive “Ya-haha!” laughter.

The Reddit user Ohsa delighted the community by sharing photos of their clay-sculpted Korok, showcasing its cute yet slightly eerie appearance with a red meat mask, featuring jet-black circles for eyes and a nose. Ohsa revealed that this unique Korok was created as part of a set of eight figures, all featuring standard leaf masks, which they enjoyed hiding around their home. The sculpting process involved multiple sessions lasting one to two hours each, with painting consuming most of the time. The subreddit community expressed admiration for the sculpture’s creativity, although some humorously referenced the trend of playful Korok experimentation in Tears of the Kingdom.

Amid the fan-created Korok tributes, Nintendo has announced a collaboration with Sanei Boeki, a renowned Japanese manufacturing company, to release Tears of the Kingdom-inspired Korok plushies. While details about US availability remain pending, the immense popularity of Koroks and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom hints at potential future announcements from Nintendo regarding availability for fans outside Japan.
