In Breath of the Wild, champion abilities are the four key items and abilities granted to Link after completing Divine Beasts.


The key items are referred to as "HeroSoul" and the abilities as "{Wind|Fire|Electric|Water}Support"[1].

Cooldown timers

Cooldown durations for the abilities are configured in Link's bgparamlist > Player section, using the following keys: WindSupportReuseTime, WaterSupportReuseTime, FireSupportReuseTime, ElectricSupportReuseTime

Cooldown timer rates (the value which is subtracted to the timer every real-life second) are also configured in the same GeneralParamList, with the following extra considerations:

  • The timer rate is hardcoded to be 1.0 in Player code[2] if the player is not in Hyrule Castle[3]. Otherwise, the GeneralParamList value is used.
  • [1.4.0+] The timer rate is hardcoded to be 3.0 in Player code if the player has the DLC-only "+" variant of an ability[4], and 9.0 if the player is in Hyrule Castle and has the "+" variant.
Summary: Effective timer rates
Not in Hyrule Castle In Hyrule Castle
Ability 1.0 GeneralParamList value (normally 3.0)
Ability+ 3.0 9.0


  1. bgparamlist - Player
  2. Player::updateSupportTimerRates at 0x710086D1B0 [nx-1.5.0 executable]
  3. The Player code checks the IsInHyruleCastleArea flag to determine whether the player is in Hyrule Castle.
  4. For example, for Revali's Gale+, the Player code checks whether the IsGet_DLC_HeroSoul_Rito flag is set and whether DLC v3.0 is active (by checking aocManager).
