Hyrule Warriors Bombchu

Here's a fairly simple papercraft for you. It's quite large, but so are the pieces (for the most part), so it's not too fiddly. Bombchus made a return in Hyrule Warriors as gigantic mechanical bombs, with a much more detailed design than ever before. If you let one explode in one of your keeps, you'll lose it immediately, so be careful and destroy them before they can explode!

Valoo

Valoo is a character from the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. He lives atop Dragon Roost Island and protects the Rito tribe that also resides there. When a Rito comes of age, they travel to the top of Dragon Roost to receive a scale from Valoo that enables them to grow their wings. When Link first travels to the island a monster is torturing Valoo, preventing young Rito from getting their wings. Link must defeat the monster using Valoo’s tail in the very first boss battle of the game.

The papercraft stands at about 12cm tall, depending on how high up you position the head. It wasn’t created in Pepakura, so unfortunately there is no .pdo to help with construction, but for help there are full diagram instructions with the recommended build order, and check out the finished build picture for the positioning of parts.

Pipit

Pipit is a Zelda character who made an appearance in Skyward Sword. He is a graduate of the Knight Academy in Skyloft, the winner of the Wing Ceremony the year before Link. He lives in Skyloft with his mother, Mallara, and can be found patrolling around the Academy at night. The papercraft is fairly complex, so make sure you have some papercraft experience before attempting it. Once you’ve done the first two pages though, it is a pretty straightforward build. The base is entirely optional, he will stand up without it or weights.

Armos (Wind Waker)

Armos have appeared in many Zelda games to date. In Wind Waker, the best strategy to defeat them is to shoot them in the eye, paralysing it and enabling Link to attack the gem on their backs. Link can also sneak around the back to attack their weak spot.

Tips: Build from the top down. Take your time when gluing the smallest parts, and wait for the glue to dry before moving on to the next flap. After testbuilding, I found it easier to stick on the spikes without flaps. To do this, just apply a small amount of glue to edge you want to stick and if you use PVA glue you'll find it will attach quite quickly and easily.

Do the same with the legs, build feet up and attach them once fully built. You may want to put a little glue on the arms to help hold them in the position you want. You will probably need to put some weights in his feet to help him stand up.

Wind Waker Rat

This papercraft is of the rats that appear in the Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker. These sneaky little critters will attack Link and attempt to steal some of his Rupees, or sell him various items if he scatters All-purpose Bait in front of one of their holes.

Tips: The difficulty of this craft is about medium. The parts on the template are numbered, so follow that if you need help. Sealing off can be very fiddly, so take your time and use a cocktail stick or something small and thin to get into the gaps. Cut out the eyes from their black background and stick them to head. Bend the tooth in the middle, put some glue along the top and press it to the roof of the mouth. This should be enough to hold it in place.

3D 8-Bit Zelda

This is a 3D papercraft based on the 2D sprite of Princess Zelda from the original Legend of Zelda game on the NES. She makes her only appearance at the very end of the game, after Link has defeated Ganon and retrieved the Triforce. The small version requires less printing (and space), but is more fiddly so I recommend the larger version.
