A gamer in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom tested the game’s building features by assembling a workable combustion engine. They then proceeded to social media to reveal this feat of engineering, following another tear of the Kingdom fan’s display of an astonishing three-story house design.
True to its sandbox design philosophy, the latest Zelda game requires players to construct the most essential gadgets to solve its numerous hurdles. Those who engage with Tears of the Kingdom’s Ultrahand ability beyond the minimal minimum will soon discover it to have great utility and tomfoolery potential.
This newly discovered example of a working combustion engine falls into the latter category. However, that doesn’t make it any less spectacular than the Tears of the Kingdom King Gleeok mechs and other intimidating hardware that the fanbase has been constructing recently.
The gadget, created by Reddit user jtrofe, employs two Zonai Canons to push a moving piston by simply firing into the counterpart of a fixed cylinder set on a Zonai Spring. As seen in a quick video demonstration of the gadget posted by the author on June 22, the plunger rotates a handmade crankshaft.
While many Tears of the Kingdom fans expressed their awe at the achievement, others hesitated to classify it as an external combustion engine, contending that the gadget is more of a kinetic force converter. Not everyone agreed, with Reddit user Senora arguing that genuine combustion engine cylinders may be called minor canons.
Aside from semantics, it’s unclear whether this creation will have a significant impact on the game’s building meta; the current design already uses a double-digit number of components to get the crankshaft turning, which limits its practical applications because Tears of the Kingdom restricts players to 21 parts per a single structure before the build begins to fall apart.

While this was most likely done for performance reasons, it still places a hard limit on the degree of intricacy that players may hope to construct, which is not much larger than the complexity of this improvised combustion engine.
Nonetheless, the meta surrounding the upcoming Zelda game is evolving at a steady rate. One of its most recent achievements occurred just a few weeks ago, when a cunning Tears of the Kingdom player transformed an adversary into a rain sensor, demonstrating that Zonai gadgets may be fueled without using single-use batteries or Link’s energy cell reserves.
