As a Champion, she is affiliated with Link and the Royal Family of Hyrule, and wears a skirt crafted by Zelda in the color of the Royal family to represent her title.

Urbosa is also capable of unleashing an incredible destructive power that allows her to control lightning, which had come to be known as Urbosa's Fury.

History

End of the Timelines

100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Urbosa lived in Gerudo Town as their ruler, and was chosen by King Rhoam and Princess Zelda to become the Gerudo Champion, and the pilot of Vah Naboris in hopes of destroying Ganon when he would return.

Since then, she, Link, Zelda, Mipha, Daruk, and Revali worked together to prepare for the Great Calamity, and were caught off guard by Ganon emerging from Hyrule Castle unexpectedly. She set out to her Divine beast to start the counter attack, only to be killed by Thunderblight Ganon, who had been waiting for her. Urbosa's spirit was then trapped within Vah Naboris while Thunderblight Ganon took it over.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

During Breath of the Wild, Urbosa's spirit was freed by Link a century after her demise when Thunderblight Ganon met its end at hands of the hero. She then blessed Link with her divine power, Urbosa's Fury, to help him take out his foes more easily. She then commanded Vah Naboris to its firing position, revealing Ganon as one of her own people and the namesake of Vah Naboris, the ancient Sage of spirit, Nabooru.

She then waited for the battle between Link and Ganon. When Link finally faced the monster, she along with the other Champions fired a devastating laser beam in order to weaken Ganon, allowing Link to destroy the physical form of the beast.
