The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Best Fuse Combinations

As if anything could surpass The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has far exceeded expectations for a new sequel. It’s a bigger, better, and busier entry that introduces plenty of new features, including a new Fuse ability. Fuse, as the name suggests, allows Link to combine any two items together to create a more powerful weapon or shield. You can either increase the durability or attack power of the base weapon or shield. And by using the most useful items found throughout Hyrule. Ideally, you’ll want to use items with mineral, and, hence, elemental properties, or you can pick up monster drops, including body parts like horns and toenails. Otherwise, pretty much anything you can interact with in Hyrule has a high chance of being fusible. So come along on our The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – best fuse combinations article to find out.

5. Shield + Zonai Rocket = Rocket Shield

Rockets on their own are powerful. But did you know you can fuse a Shield with a Zonai rocket to create a rocket shield? What it does is give you the freedom to blast into the sky while protecting you from enemy attacks. However, the distance covered isn’t too great. You can’t use a rocket shield to fly all the way up to a sky island.

Still, a rocket shield proves very useful as a traversal option, especially in the early hours of the game. For instance, you’ll find the Ascend ability only works when the surface you want to “ascend” through is within reach. If not, you can use a rocket shield to give you a boost. Or, use it to skip some puzzles. Alternatively, you can use a rocket shield to take slow-motion shots at enemies from higher up. 

A rocket shield has one glaring caveat, that you can only use it once. Afterward, the rocket will disintegrate from the shield. And if you want to go farther up, the battery will run out soon. Then, it’ll disappear after covering a small but decent distance. Oh, and the shield’s durability will drain too. So, try to fuse the rocket to a weaker shield that you don’t mind replacing.

4. Spear + Spear = Double Spear

Sure, it’s much more fun to fuse your weapon or shield to a new item you’ve just come across. However, you have the option to double fuse, too, which, in turn, doubles the base weapon's or shield’s power. Fusing one spear with another, for example, can drastically help you maximize the weapon's long-range abilities. It can help create more distance from enemies, while also increasing the spear’s damage output.

A double spear (or double shield, or other) is the simplest way to make an already reliable weapon behave much better. And since a spear already offers the longest range and comes in handy during battle, why not double the impact, especially when facing more powerful enemies you’d like to keep a good distance from?

3. Arrow + Fire/Ice/Electricity Chuchu Jelly = Chuchu Jelly Arrow

Chuchu Jelly is a special type of gelatinous substance that provides useful elemental properties. To get Chuchu Jelly, you’ll need to fight a Chuchu creature, which is scattered throughout Hyrule. Once collected, you can use it to cook Elixirs that you can fuse to your weapons and arrows to deal elemental damage (or throw them like grenades.)

The bonus is that there are different types of Chuchu creatures, including fire, electricity, and ice. When you fuse these with an arrow, it deals massive, explosive elemental damage to enemies. Fire will unleash heat that explodes into a ball of flame. Plus, it continues to deal damage over time when the enemy remains on fire. Similarly, electricity will shock and stun opponents, while ice freezes them. Not all enemies will respond to elemental attacks. However, most enemies in Tears of the Kingdom are susceptible.

Besides combat, you can use Chuchu Jelly Arrows to get around Hyrule. Like, say, you run into a water body. You can use the ice Chuchu Jelly to create ice blocks to skip on. Just remember to only use Chuchu Jelly with arrows, or other medium to long-range weapons. If you use them with melee weapons, it may affect Link’s health too.

2. Shield + Puffshroom = Puffroom Shield

Puff shrooms are perfect with shields because they help create a fog AOE that helps you sneak in a couple of hits that enemies won’t see coming. The fog has an effect on Link, too. However, that hardly compares to the devastating effect on enemies. A Puffshroom Shield activates when the enemy hits the puffshroom. This will cause it to explode and create a smoke vapor that covers everything within a few meters. 

While a Puffshroom Shield may not offer much in the early hours of the game, it can drastically improve the odds of winning fights with more powerful enemies. By creating a blinding effect mid-battle, you can tip the scales in your favor by dealing extensive damage to disoriented enemies in a split seconds.

1. Arrow + Eyeball = Eyeball Arrow

One of the most commonly used fuse combinations is the eyeball arrow. Particularly if you’re struggling with aiming and hitting targets. To get an eyeball arrow, you’ll need to collect the eyeball of a fallen monster and attach it to your arrow. However unpleasant the process is, using an eyeball arrow pays off handsomely. 

Once you spot an enemy in your vicinity, an Eyeball Arrow allows you to easily lock onto it and hit the target accurately. Even if the enemy is quick on their feet or can’t stick to one place. The Eyeball Arrow will hit it regardless. Not only can you kill enemies, but you can also use an Eyeball Arrow when hunting for food. That way, you’re almost always assured of hitting your target, even while they run or fly away.
