Battle Scarred Link

A Skin Mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU)

Ever get confused playing the main story and constantly having references to the fact that Link has scars all over his body from the calamity attack (such as mentioned by Robbie and Purah I believe) and yet in the game itself his body is as clean as a whistle? Want Link to have those more lore friendly scars or just want to make him look more grizzled or badass?

Well then this skin is for you!

Contains a body retexture for link to give him battle scars all over. His chest, back, and both arms, legs and hands. This pack also contains two optional versions to give him a new set of eyes and some scars on his face too.

1) Scar Boy - the base body mod with scars



2) Scar Boy Eyes - the base body plus a solid blue eye texture to make his eyes look more like pieces of fanart I have seen. Is my personal version I play with and have dubbed "Scar Boy" Link, hence the name of the files.


3) Scar Boy Eyes and Face
- Has the base body and retextured solid eyes, along with the addition of some small scars to his face to fully cover him. Is a bit eh since how BOTW handles face textures is that it is mirrored through both sides of his face, so put scars on one side he has the exact same scars on the other side of his face too. Others have said the face textures instead of looking like battle scars instead make Link look like a grandpa so...


The download contains all of the 3 files, all packaged into the graphics pack CEMU format so all you will have to do is extract the archive into the graphics pack folder and then pick which version you want for CEMU.

Hope you like the texture even though it is incredibly low res as this texture editing deal is very new to me.

Potential future versions/improvements:

- Make a more burned look like the Linked Universe series version of BOTW Link:

    Fantastic! Kept getting tired of all my walkthroughs with Robbie and Pura checking my body for scars and saying they recognize the scars that aren't even visible!

    Wow Really good mod! I am a real fan of the scars. Do you think that maybe would could get scars on face and body without the Blue eyes? Also any way we could maybe get like a ripped or torned up version of the champions tunic?

    WOW...  I love this. when I had the techlab mission this mod really played into the story. AGAIN, I LOVE IT!!
    - Update - Is there a way to way to make one of his eyes glazed over and the other regular? or the eyes a with a hit of red? Love your ideas of the update (burned), would be cool to see some of the cars burned and others regular gray and the rest black.

    Excellent. This will work great alongside the broken Master Sword mod.
