[Top 10] Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Best Fuse Materials

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Best Fuse Materials
Link is always on the go, finding new fuse materials for stronger and stronger weapons.

Tears of the Kingdom introduces a fun new mechanic unlike any other: fuse. With the fuse ability, you can make tons of unique and powerful weapons, shoot nearly any material from your bow, and even fuse things to your shield!

Finding good fuse combinations will help you get some insanely powerful items, so I’ve made a list of the top ten best fuse materials to help you in your search!

10. Dragon Horn

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Dragon Horn

The Light Dragon's Horn makes for a powerful and brilliant looking sword that will also heal you as you fight!

Of all the dragon parts you can collect in Tears of the Kingdom, the horns have the best fuse attack power. Naydra, Dinraal, and Farosh’s horns have 26 attack power, while the Light Dragon’s horn has 20. Each part will also add a unique elemental ability to your weapon, making them both powerful and practical weapons.

The dragon horns are best used for your weapon fusions, as they won’t be very useful for your arrows or shield. A fun perk of the Light Dragon’s horn in particular, is that it will help you slowly recover hearts as you fight!

How to get Dragon Horns:

  • Once you find the dragon you want, you’ll have to shoot or hit their horn with your weapon. If you’re fast, you can pick up the horn piece right away, but if not, just follow it down to the ground below.

9. Silver Bokoblin Horn

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Silver Bokoblin Horn

The strangly floppy-looking Silver Bokoblin Horn also has some strangely powerful properties.

The Silver Bokoblin Horn boasts a decent 31 fuse attack power. For early game, this is going to be a game changer, but later on, you’ll find much more powerful parts to use.

Since Bokoblins are some of the most common enemies you’ll come across in the game, you’ll find yourself with a surplus of different Bokoblin horns. Despite the strange pom pom style of this horn, it’s actually much more powerful than some of the sharper looking Bokoblin horns.

How to get Silver Bokoblin Horns:

  • As you progress in the game, you’ll steadily find more and more Silver Bokoblins scattered all around. If you’re having trouble finding Silver Bokoblins, you may need to progress the game by going through more temples so the game recognizes that you’re ready for the harder mobs.

8. Captain Construct IV Horn

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Captain Construct IV Horn

A flashy Zonai sword, when attached to a Captain Construct IV Horn, makes for the perfect Zonaite weapon.

The Captain Construct IV Horn is the best of the construct horns with an impressive 35 fuse attack power. In addition to this, the Captain Construct IV Horn will also make an attached Zonaite Sword or Spear more powerful than when it’s attached to other fuse materials.

Although these parts are a bit harder to find, they make for a stylish and effective weapon, and sometimes they can be found as an already fused weapon in chests!

How to get Captain Construct IV Horns:

  • You’ll find different Constructs all around Hyrule, often in the sky, in different temples, and sometimes underground! The Captain Construct IV is much more rare and powerful than the other constructs, so it may take some game progression to see them more often in your adventures.

7. Marbled Gohma Leg

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Marbled Gohma Leg

Link must be jacked to swing a weapon as hardy as the Marbled Gohma Leg speared on top of a Zora Sword.

The Marbled Gohma Leg is a unique and powerful fuse material that you can only get after finishing the Fire Temple. With a hefty 38 fuse attack power rating, the Marbled Gohma Leg, when fused with a great weapon, makes for quite a fun hammer combo.

Not only is this fuse material one of a kind, but it’s also fairly durable. Despite it not being the most aesthetic option for fusing, it can be paired with quite a few different weapons, like the Zora weapons that double attack power when wet, to make it even more powerful.

How to get Marbled Gohma Leg:

  • After finishing the Fire Temple, you’ll start to find the Marbled Gohma boss in the Depths. Anytime you defeat one of these rematch bosses, you’ll have the option of fusing the Marbled Gohma Leg to one of your weapons, but unfortunately you can’t pick up this material otherwise.

6. Queen Gibdo Wing

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Queen Gibdo Wing

Can you even see Link behind the powerful shield that is the Queen Gibdo Wing? Yeah, not really.

When attached to a weapon, the Queen Gibdo Wing will add an additional 40 fuse attack power to the weapon, but it will also use the gust ability when attacking, allowing you to push your enemies back.

Another use of the Queen Gibdo Wing is to attach it to your shield. Although it doesn't add any raw defensive power, it makes for a large shield that will definitely keep you covered, and also protect you from fire and electric attacks!

How to get Queen Gibdo Wing:

  • Getting the Queen Gibdo Wing requires you to complete the Lightning Temple first. After this is done, you’ll start to find the rematch battles in the Depths, where you can then fuse the dropped Queen Gibdo Wing to your weapon or shield!

5. Gibdo Bone

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Gibdo Bone

The Gibdo Bone, a seemingly janky-looking projectile that packs quite a punch!

The first time you head to Gerudo Desert, you’ll find it swarming with a new type of creature: Gibdo. Gibdo are strange zombie-like creatures that can only be killed once you’ve used an elemental attack on them. They’ll often drop Gibdo Bones, which make a powerful arrow tip fusion with a shocking 40 fuse attack power!

Gibdo Bones, despite their impressive power, have very low durability, and will break on impact. Instead of using them for a weapon, attach them to your arrow to deal a large amount of damage with your bow! You’ll collect quite a few as you go through the Gerudo questline and temple, so they won’t be in short supply!

How to get Gibdo Bones:

  • Gibdo Bones are dropped from Gibdos, which are found around Gerudo Desert. Before you’ve gone through the Gerudo questline, you can find Gibdos in the storms surrounding Gerudo Town and in the town itself, but they also spawn in the Lightning Temple, the Desert Rift, and several other places around the desert before, during, and after the questline.

4. White-Maned Lynel Saber Horn

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom White-Maned Lynel Saber Horn

The White-Maned Lynel Saber Horn makes a beautiful, arching swing that is sure to distract your enemies quite a bit as you vanquish them.

The White-Maned Lynel Saber Horn is a powerful item, with a unique design as well! It has a whopping 44 fuse attack power, with its counterpart, the White-Lynel Mace Horn, being just shy of this at 40 fuse attack power.

These Lynel horns are incredible fuse options for weapons, but they won’t do a whole lot for arrows or shields. They’re most easily acquired later in the game, and when paired with a good base, they’ll become one of your best weapons in the game.

How to get White-Maned Lynel Saber Horns:

  • As the name says, these White-Maned Lynel Saber Horns are dropped from White-Maned Lynels. These are one of the most difficult Lynels to beat, so make sure you have a good stash of weapons, food, and armor before going to face off against one of these beasts.

3. Ancient Blade

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Ancient Blade

Don't go looking to get loot with these Ancient Blades; they'll find their uses elsewhere.

Ancient Blades are Tears of the Kingdom’s replacement for Ancient Arrows in Breath of the Wild. When attached to an arrow, Ancient Blades will do a massive 50 damage to a target, but the enemy won’t drop any materials when killed with it.

Typically, Ancient Blades are best used when you’re in a pinch and need to escape a particularly nasty battle. They will instakill a lot of basic enemies, and do a hefty amount of damage to the bosses. Just be aware that you may not get the loot you want if you choose to use this fuse material.

How to get Ancient Blades:

  • In the beginning of the game, you might find these scattered around Hyrule in chests or as drops, but the easiest way to acquire them is after finishing the Spirit Temple. Right after completing this temple, you’ll have the option of purchasing Ancient Blades for zonaite, as many as you want.

2. Silver Lynel Mace Horn

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Silver Lynel Mace Horn

The Silver Lynel Mace Horn pairs beautifully with the Ember Armor set.

The twiggy-looking Silver Lynel Mace Horn has 51 fuse attack power, making it the second most powerful fuse item in the game! 

Make sure you make good use of these Lynel horns, as they’re not very common, but they can certainly make for some pretty impressive weapons! The unique design is also quite fun to show off against other late game bosses.

How to get Silver Lynel Mace Horns:

  • As you get later in the game, you’ll find yourself facing off against tougher and tougher Lynels, including this most powerful Lynel, the Silver Lynel. Defeating these beasts will allow you to pick up the Silver Lynel Mace Horn, among many other useful materials.

1. Silver Lynel Saber Horn

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Silver Lynel Saber Horn

With the sun gleaming in the distance, Link stands proudly with his terrifying Silver Lynel Saber Horn blade.

The Silver Lynel Saber Horn is the most powerful fuse material in the game, with a shocking 55 fuse attack power bonus. This means that any item you attach to this Lynel horn will increase its damage by 55, possibly more depending on the base of the weapon.

This sleek design is great for a striking, yet subtle, sword that Link can use to slice through his foes. When paired with a good base weapon, this fuse material can make for some truly startling weapon combos for taking out any boss in the game, including Ganon himself.

How to get Silver Lynel Saber Horns:

  • Naturally, the Silver Lynel Saber Horn is dropped from Silver Lynels, which can be found above ground and in the depths. They’re typically easier to find and fight later in the game, but with all the loot they give you, including this horn, they’re more than worth it.

Final Thoughts

Finding the most powerful fuse materials in Tears of the Kingdom is pretty easy, especially when you can organize your materials by fuse attack power. But finding out which one is the best for your situation is a whole other battle.

When fusing materials to weapons, arrows, and shields, make sure to take into account their fuse attack power, elemental abilities, zonaite properties, and more, to make sure you’re always using the best fuse material for the job.
