How many Korok Seeds are in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom? Even more numerous than they were in Breath of the Wild, these special gold seeds are used to expand your inventory for holding Zelda Tears of the Kingdom weapons, bows and shields, and there's a special (and slightly gross) prize for getting all of them handed over to the big kid who wants them - and if you need help finding him, we've got a guide written on Hestu's locations in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. Otherwise, let's talk numbers about the total amount of Korok Seeds you can find in TOTK.

How many Korok seeds can you find in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom?

There are 1000 Korok seeds in total in Tears of the Kingdom, which is 100 more than in Breath of the Wild. At first it might feel as if you're running into a needy Korok everywhere you turn, but since most Korok puzzles give you just one or two each, don't be fooled. Finding all 1000 is no easy task, and the rewards for doing so are less than appealing.

Want to find all the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Korok Seeds? Our page will help with your grand hunt!

Sure, cache upgrades are nice, but there's only so many you need in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom before it just feels silly. What do you get instead after returning all 1000 Korok Seeds to Hestu? Well, let's put it this way: it's called Hestu's Gift, and it apparently smells quite bad. If you think its icon looks like a piece of poop, that's because it is one. 

Finding all 1000 Korok Seeds will make Hestu so very pleased with you, he will offer to dance any time you ask him to. Considering you'll have seen him dance countless times already, however, it hardly feels like a reward indicative of your many, many hours spent scouring the Zelda Tears of the Kingdom map.
