The Divine Beast Vah Naboris is a Divine Beast and dungeon featured in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Like every other Divine Beasts, Naboris was created by the ancient Sheikah to weaken Calamity Ganon. It was piloted by the hero and ruler of the Gerudo, Urbosa, until her death at the hands of the Thunderblight Ganon.
10000 years before Breath of the Wild
The Divine Beast Vah Medoh was created over 10,000 years before the events of Breath of the Wild by the Sheikah, along with the other Divine Beasts and the Guardians, to fight Calamity Ganon. At the time, four Champions were chosen to pilot the Divine Beasts, who directly attacked Ganon to held the princess of Hyrule and the chosen hero wielding the Master Sword. They succeeded and Ganon was sealed away for more than 10000 years.
Rediscovering the Divine Beasts
110 years before the events of Breath of the Wild, the Royal Family of Hyrule was warned by a fortune teller of the return of Ganon. In preparation of his return, the Divine Beasts were rediscovered after being excavated and like in the old legend, four Champions were chosen to pilot them. The Gerudo Champion, Urbosa, was chosen to pilot the Divine Beast Vah Naboris.
100 years before Breath of the Wild
However, despite the efforts of the Royal Family, Calamity Ganon surprised them by corrupting and taking control of the ancient Sheikah technology. Thunderblight Ganon, a being created by Calamity Ganon was sent to kill Urbosa and take control of the Divine Beast. Princess Zelda used her power to contain Ganon in Hyrule Castle and his influence on the Divine Beasts was weakened.
During Breath of the Wild
A century later, Calamity Ganon's power grew strong enough to remotely control the Divine Beasts once more even if he was still imprisoned in the castle. Vah Naboris started to wander the East Barrens of the Gerudo Desert, threatening the inhabitants of the Gerudo Desert with the risk of being struck from its lightning should it travel too close to the Divine Beast. With the help of Makeela Riju and the Thunder Helm, Link temporarily shut down and go inside the Divine Beast. There he destroy Thunderblight Ganon and free the soul of Urbosa who assume control over the Divine Beast and place it in firing position with Ganon as target. For freeing the Gerudo, Link is rewarded with Urbosa's Fury, which allow him to command lightning.
- According to Urbosa, Vah Naboris' name is based on Nabooru the sage of spirit in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
