Sundelions are one of the rarest ingredients in The Legend of Zelda: TOTK.

Thanks to the plants’ Gloom-dispelling properties, they’re one of the game’s best cooking ingredients, especially when visiting the Depths.

If you want to have any hope of taking on Tears of the Kingdom’s terrifying Gloom Hands, you’ll need a Sundelion or two.

And thankfully, there are at least a few guaranteed spawns that players can find for the potent medicinal flower.

The best location to find Sundelions in Zelda: TOTK is on the South Eldin Sky Archipelago islands. By using the Eldin Canyon Skyview Tower, you’ll be able to launch yourselves onto the area’s Sky Islands.

There, Sundelions appear to spawn every day, allowing you to cook up new recipes to heal from Gloom damage.

In addition, players will be able to find the plants (albeit rarely) in locations such as Hyrule Fields and Gerudo Desert.

Another way to find Sundelions is in your battles against Yiga Clan members.

If you’re following the Yiga Clan questline that begins when you’re getting the Autobuild Purah Pad upgrade, you’ll sometimes find that the Yiga Clan members will drop Sundelions when defeated in combat.

Now that you have a guaranteed source of Sundelions, you’ll be able to get both the Sheik Armor and the Radiant Armor for a major discount!

Effectively, each Sundelion mixed into a recipe will lead to the dish restoring 3 additional Gloom Hearts.

However, do not cook the Sundelion with ingredients that have their own effects when cooked – or else you may end up canceling out the benefits!
