Koroks have made their appearances in multiple Zelda games including Breath of the Wild and the Wind Waker. The tiny wooden creatures with leaf masks can be found from a variety of puzzles that then reward the players with a Korok seed which can be exchanged to upgrade Link’s inventory.

However, a new addition to Tears of the Kingdom has introduced backpack Koroks which require the player to create transportation methods to get them across Hyrule and back to their awaiting friends. It’s unsure whether the developers expected this huge amount of chaos created by their players but videos online have been going viral as players share their new creations.

One Twitter user, @dankois, has taken to the social media platform to compile some of the best videos that have already made it to the internet so far. In just the few days since the game has been released, Koroks have been attached to rockets, placed on a rotisserie and even crucified.

With the game having been released just days ago, it’s almost certain that players will find even more unique torture the adorable little woodland creatures. Breath of the Wild players were rewarded with a golden poo from Hetsu after finding all 900 seeds.

It is not yet known what players will receive for finding all the Korok seeds in Tears of the Kingdom, but until then players can enjoy creating new ways of helping Korok’s find their friends.
