TOTK Red Arrow Sign Post Puzzle

The Zelda TOTK red arrow sign post puzzle (or puzzles, rather) reveal a Korok when solved, and therefore unlock a Korok Seed. They are also pretty obtuse. Like, what are you supposed to do? Follow each of the arrows and see what they’re pointing towards? Nope, not at all. Here’s what you actually need to do.

Tears of the Kingdom Red Arrow Sign Post Puzzle

Every red arrow sign post puzzle in Zelda TOTK or Tears of the Kingdom is a little Korok puzzle, as we’ve said in the introduction. The solution to each of them is to find the intersection of the directions the arrows are pointing in. Basically, draw an imaginary line from each arrow and find a point in which they intersect. Go to that spot and press A to reveal the Korok. You won’t necessarily get a prompt, so you’ll have to just hit the button and hope that you’re in the right place. You can see an example of one of these puzzles and the solution in the image below. This one has only two arrows, but others have more, which makes the point easier to triangulate.

Puzzle solution

And there you have it, that’s how you solve every red arrow sign post puzzle in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom or TOTK. It’s all about triangulation, really, but I can see why it would be confusing. Of course your first impulse would be to go in the direction one of the arrows is pointing towards; you might not even see the other ones. Or even worse, if you did see the other arrows, you wouldn’t know which direction to follow. Well, as it turns out, you just need to find the point in which the directions intersect. There are other interesting Korok puzzles that tease the brain, like the dandelion ones.
