Where to get a skeletal horse in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Part of the appeal of any open world is finding fun and unique ways to navigate it — and Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is absolutely overflowing with creative transportation methods. However, sometimes you just want to keep things simple with a tried-and-true horse. You could always find and stable any number of normal horses across Hyrule, but if you’re fancying something that feels a bit more dark and creepy, you’ll want to round up a skeletal horse. Here’s how to find a skeletal horse in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

If you want to ride these rare mounts around Hyrule, perhaps the easiest spot to round up skeletal horses is at Sanidin Park Ruin, across the river to the west of Mount Daphnes. If you visit this location late at night, you should spot plenty of skeletal horses wandering around the ruins. You can mount them like any other horse — just slowly walk over to their side while they’re standing still and quickly tap the A button.

Meanwhile, herds of skeletal horses can also be found deep underground in the pitch-dark Depths. You’ll certainly stumble upon plenty of chasms leading to the Depths during your journey through Hyrule, so getting down there shouldn’t pose too much of a problem.

However, finding skeletal horses can take a bit of exploration — something that is rather challenging unless you’ve brought along plenty of brightbloom seeds to light your way. With enough time spent scouring the Depths, though, you’re certain to find some.

Unfortunately, as with the skeletal horses from Breath of the Wild, you can’t actually stable these undead equines. That means you’re free to use them as a trusty stead for a period of time, but you’ll never be able to save them for use later. If you’re in the Depths, you can continue to use them for as long as you’d like, presumably, but those found above ground will disappear at 5 a.m. in-game time.

The 10 best video games of 2023
Video game characters appear in front of a Game of the Year 2023 logo.

I wish I could say that 2023 was a fantastic year for video games, but that wouldn't tell the full story.

On a surface level, yes, this year was one of the best players have seen since 2017 thanks to a seemingly endless list of top-tier releases. The fact that a game like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom wasn't a shoo-in for Game of the Year honors speaks volumes to just how many unforgettable experiences developers created this year. From the dystopian abyss of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon to the scenic mountains of A Highland Song, video games transported us to so many incredible worlds that it's been hard to keep track of them all.

Fortnite Banana emote code: How to get the Nanner Ringer emote for free
Nanner Ringer emote in Fortnite

Chapter 5, season 1 of Fortnite is underway with a whole new map and tons of fresh content for players to dive into. While most of the new stuff can be earned or purchased in-game, there's one special emote Epic has created that will require you to put in a code on the Fortnite website, and that's the Nanner Ringer emote. There's a catch, though: Only the first 25 million players to redeem the code will actually be able to claim the emote. Afterward, the code will expire, meaning there's a high probability that you'll never get an opportunity to get this one again, so make sure you act fast if you'd like to add it to your emote collection.
How to get the Nanner Ringer emote for free
When you're ready to claim the Nanner Ringer emote, follow these instructions.

Open the Fortnite website and sign in to your Epic Games account.
