I like to experiment in combat when I play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, though I typically default to the bow. However, one technique that I’ve found handy is to blind my enemies and not just to run away. While blinding Hinox is obvious, you may be wondering how to blind other enemies in Tears of the Kingdom.
How to make enemies blind in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
There are two ways to blind enemies in Tears of the Kingdom. You can either use Puffshroom or Dazzlefruit. Both of these can blind your enemies, allowing you to get sneak attacks or escape combat. However, they both have different methods.
Puffshroom will create a cloud of smoke. This makes it impossible for enemies to see Link. You can use the smokescreen to quickly get away or sneak behind your opponents a sneak strike. Dazzlefruit will blind your enemies temporarily with a bright flash of light. This is a more direct way to blind Link’s enemies.

You can use Fuse to attach these items to your arrows or to weapons and strike your foes with them. Alternatively, you can press R and up on the D-pad to throw Puffshroom and Dazzlefruit, saving item durability.
Where to get Puffshrom in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Puffshroom are found in The Depths. There is no one place to find them, but they appear more frequently along the base of rocks and trees. You may find Muddle Bud or Bomb Flowers instead, so ensure you search thoroughly.
Where to get Dazzlefruit in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom
Hyrule Field and Gerudo Highlands are great places to search for Dazzlefruit. You can also find them commonly in the Sky Islands. They appear as short yellow trees with glowing fruit dangling from them.
