Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity further expands the lore of The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. This means that the game will also introduce new characters – one of which was recently teased.

The recent trailer for Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity was special. Not only did it give fans a closer look at Master Kohga, but it also gave us a closer look at a new mysterious figure. Since launch, fans have begun deciphering the series’ history to guess who the new character is. Here are the most notable suggestions.


One of the most popular guesses is that the new character is Yuga. This is basing on the jewel on the forehead of the mysterious figure. In The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds, Yuga had a similar facial feature.

In that game, Yuga is a dark sorcerer who served as the main antagonist. Moreover, he was a playable character in the first Hyrule Warriors. He could be making a return in the series with the next Hyrule Warriors. For now, he is a favorite guess among fans.

Vaati or Aghanim

Since the figure is cloaked and robed, players have also guessed that it could either be Vaati or Aghanim, who are both series staples as well. Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity could see the return of a few series of staple villains to help Calamity Ganon.

A new character

There’s a good chance that the character will also be someone new. This means someone who hasn’t appeared in any Legend of Zelda game. This is a huge possibility as characters like Master Kohga, Purah, and Robbie are new as well.

In The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Calamity Ganon is a huge ominous figure without a human form. It’s unlikely that we’ll see him as an actual character in the game, so the mysterious figure can’t be him.

Fans are obviously excited to see who this character is. The role is open for many franchise staples. While others are playing the guessing game, there are others who would prefer to wait for the next trailer instead.

There’s a lot of possibilities as to who this next character for Hyrule Warriors Age of CalamityFans are hoping that it’s a familiar name from the franchise. However, there are still those who hope that Nintendo is going to introduce an entirely new character instead.
