There are many items in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom that are extremely important for traversing the large expanse of Hyrule, and the Fan is one of them. Allowing you and other items to get to faraway places in less time is a huge benefit, so if you are tired of running or pushing objects around, then this guide is for you.

Below we'll show you exactly how to use the Fan and the many awesome benefits it has in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. So without further delay, let's get right into it. 

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom - How To Use the Fan

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom features an easily operated device called the fan or Zonai Fan. Activating the fan is as simple as striking it with any weapon, but players can use a torch or arrow to avoid damaging their preferred weapons

Once activated, the fan spins and blows in a single direction, moving connected objects in the opposite direction. To turn off the fan, hit it again. There is a short cooldown time between activations, and it will automatically turn off when the Zonai battery runs out.

Fans can be utilized in various ways, such as attaching them to objects using the Ultrahand to create vehicles like self-moving boats or using them to make basic aircraft by blowing them downwards with a steering stick to control direction. These are just a few ideas, as you can attach the fan to almost anything, including something you are standing on, which can propel you into the air for some fun aerial traversal.

To acquire more fans, players can obtain them from special dispensers on floating islands or forage them from areas where they are commonly used. These Zonai Gacha machines dispense random Zonai devices, including fans, so simply check your map for their locations if you've discovered them before. 

Players can use a Zonai fan almost anywhere by selecting it from their inventory and choosing "Take out the device," but they should be careful as the device will appear right in front of them and may fall off if they are near a cliff. So make sure you set the fan down on an even surface to avoid any issues, and you'll be all set to experiment with fans to your heart's content since their potential is only limited by creativity and curiosity.
