All Small Fairy Locations in Tears of the Kingdom
Almost all small fairies in TotK can be found around Great Sky Island.
Specifically, there are 10 fairies around Great Sky Island, and here’s where to find each of them.
Additionally, there is one fairy spawn in Hyrule, on the far south side, near East Necluda.
Keep in mind that if you have a lot of fairies in your inventory, you won’t be able to see or catch any more until you use the ones you have.
How to Catch Small Fairies in TotK
Keep in mind that fairies are not easy to catch. If you approach them quickly and carelessly, they will fly away. Instead, here are some of the best tips on how to catch small fairies in Tears of the Kingdom:
- Walk or Sneak – Don’t run near them as they’ll fly away.
- Be patient – They move around constantly, and they might end up being too high for you to catch them. Just wait until they get back down again.
- Avoid shooting them – Don’t use arrows or any other throwable. The only way to catch them is by getting close.
Also, make sure to unlock shrines near the fairy spots shown above. Whenever you’re out of fairies, you will be able to come back and restock easily.
As for using them, you don’t have to do anything. After having a small fairy in your inventory, it will automatically get used the next time you’re about to die.
All it takes is having it in your inventory, and you’ll get revived upon dying.
To sum up, these are all the small fairy locations in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Collect as many as you need and activate the shrines nearby to restock whenever needed. After you have them in your inventory, they will activate automatically in a near-death situation.
