Where to find Lynels in Tears of the Kingdom? Lynels were some of the scariest monsters in BotW, and they are back in TOTK! This guide provides a Zelda TOTK All Lynel locations map and explains where you can farm Blue Lynel, White-Maned Lynel, and Red Lynel in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.
All Lynel Locations in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Lynels are back in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom, and they are scarier than ever before. And just like in BotW they are an exceptionally rare enemy to find. They are few and far between, scattered around Hyrule. Hence, players have trouble finding them. So, where to find Lynels in Zelda TOTK? The best place to farm Lynels is the Floating Colosseum, which is located in The Depths. The Floating Colosseum coordinates are -1139,-1262, -0499.
The best path to find the Floating Colosseum is through the Great Plateau North Chasm, just south of the Hyrule Field Skyview Tower. There are 5 Lynel gauntlets there, and they respawn every blood moon. In addition, you’ll find Majora’s Mask there! If you do all five gauntlets in one go, it will be hell that breaks all your shields and weapons from the inventory. However, you can teleport out of there after each Lynel to resupply and heal. Of course, you need the Travel Medallion placed near the Colosseum to return promptly.

How to Beat Lynel in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Jump in the air and glide, and then, as you fall, draw your bow, you’ll slow down time. This allows shooting Lynels in the head. This crit shot will stun them. You can then run to his back, and you’ll get a prompt to mount him and do some free damage without being in danger of getting hurt. Have your shield up at all times when not doing damage.
Master the backstep dodge. When Lynel charges you with a weapon from afar, have your shield up and move backwards. Jump when he swings at you, and you should get a time slowdown and a prompt to do a flurry rush. Free damage again.
For his fireball attack, keep your distance and just move to one side with your shield up and that should avoid them. Try not to brawl with him from up close because he will quickly break your shield. Keep mid-distance and wait for his charge attacks to do a flurry rush from backstep dodge or try to hit him with your arrow in the head to stun and mount him.
