Buliara: Halt! That is the treasure of the Gerudo, the Thunder Helm! You may be held in high esteem, but this does not give you the freedom to lay your hands on the pride of our people.

Riju: Becalm yourself, Buliara. You...desire this helm?

Link: I want it!

Riju: I see... And yet, despite the great debt we owe you, I cannot just give you such a precious thing to you... But you ARE up against the enemy of Lady Urbosa ... And if you truly desire it, then perhaps I can lend it to you...

Link: Yes! Lend it to me!

Riju: Well then, let's see how serious you are. This helm is a cultural treasure. to earn it, you must gain the trust of our people. I want you to address their concerns and bring resolute peace to our town.

Riju: We already know that you are powerful. But you can't solve all of my people's problems with power alone.

Riju: I have heard of your recent actions. You have returned smiles to the faces of my people... On behalf of all Gerudo, I must offer you my heartfelt thanks. Sarqso. You are, from this moment on, a true friend of the Gerudo! And if it can help a true friend in need, we will gladly lend you this sacred treasure. I know that you, more than any other, will be able to use this Thunder Helm to its fullest potential... I believe you can unlock the power of Urbosa that lies within.


The thunder helm has been passed down as a prized treasure of the Gerudo since Urbosa's time. It doesn't seem like they'll just give it you, but if you're able to solve all the town's problems, they'll at least lend it to you.


You solved the problems of everyone in town!

Riju gave you the Gerudo symbol of friendship, and you got the Thunder Helm!
