This Breath of the Wild Guardian Fan Art is Reminiscent of Your First Play Through

This Breath of the Wild fan art will have you reminisce about your first experience with one of the guardians in the game.

Breath of the Wild is a special game. Both to me (as you can see as the multiple culture articles I write about it) and to many of you out there. So this fan art might be something that you would want to take a look at.

The art was created by u/ASacOFluffyPups and posted over on Reddit. The piece is titled ‘Sleeping Guardian’ and perfectly recreates the emotion of running or riding past one of these machines.

I still remember the first time passing a guardian in the wild. I saw it off in the distance minding its own business so I thought I was in the clear. Then, suddenly, a red laser appears and a frantic piano tune chimbs in. My anxiety goes through the roof as this behemoth of an enemy chases me down without letting up. Finally, one perfectly shot laser rockets towards Link and destroys him with one hit. Ever since then, I know not to try to mess with one of those until I am well equipped.

As a side note, if you want any situation to immediately become incredibly stressful and anxiety-inducing, just start blaring the guardian theme wherever you are at. Could you imagine giving surgery while this is playing? Hell, even walking a dog would have me in a dead sprint looking over my shoulder for laser beams.

Breath of the Wild is currently available for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. I am always surprisingly reminded that this game came to that lonely console. If for some reason this art connected with you in some way, I would greatly recommend checking the game out. It was one of the greatest launch titles as well as just flat out one of the best games ever created and I would recommend a dog to play it if they had thumbs.
