Breath of the Wild glitch-hunters figured out how to ride Sidon anywhere

Giddy up, cowboy!

Yeehaw! Thanks to the tireless work of Breath of the Wild glitch-hunters, we can now ride a hot fish boy wherever we want. Videos showing players riding Prince Sidon across both land and air, in addition to water, started cropping up today.

The only time Link can ride Sidon without glitches is a single battle against the Divine Beast Vah Ruta. Link shoots arrows while riding Sidon��s back as the two zip across the water together. The videos don��t really explain what needs to be done to make this happen in a reliable fashion, so you��re on your own when it comes to replicating the effect.

Sidon looks badass in the water, but it��s another story on the land. Seeing Sidon��s swimming animation fully unmasked left us a little shook.

Imagine if the magic carpet from Aladdin and your one friend that is really good at the worm got together and became a hot fish man, and you can begin to see the possibilities.

Here is a video of Link riding Sidon in Death Mountain.

It��s not the fastest way to get around, but it sure looks fun.
