Chances are you've seen a blupee in your adventures in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Blupees are glowing blue rabbits that appear at random; they're the essential part of the "Legendary Rabbit Trail" side quest. Blupees are found in the wooded areas of Hyrule, and you'll probably find yourself chasing their blue glow as one hops away from you multiple times before you even realize what they are. 

Below we'll tell you the best places in Breath of the Wild to find blupees and how you can finally catch up to one.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild Blupee: Where to find the rabbit

Blupees like to hang out in wooded areas, though you'll sometimes locate the spirit rabbit along the grassy plains of Hyrule. Though blupees appear at random, you can ensure they'll pop up more often if you travel wooded paths. The area north of Kakariko Village where the Great Fairy Fountain is located is a good and relatively enemy-free place to search. If you're into somewhere more dangerous, the jungle area near Faron Tower is a large wooded area, though Wizzrobes and more powerful Bokoblin make their home there.

Alternatively, you can head to the lake near the summit of Satori Mountain near the Ridgeland Tower. There you'll find a pond where blupees visit regularly. These rabbits are also nocturnal (though you can see them in the day) so searching for them at night may make them easier to find.

Zelda Breath of the Wild Blupee: How to complete the Legendary Rabbit Trail side quest

The main reason you'll want to catch a blupee is to complete the Legendary Rabbit Trail side quest. To get this quest, you'll need to have gotten the Master Sword in "The Hero's Sword" main quest, and given back Hestu his maracas in "The Priceless Maracas" side quest. If you've met the prerequisites, you can head to Korok Forest to get to the blupee's quest.

In Korok Forest, there's a Korok named Peeks that is usually either in or just outside the Great Deku Tree. Peeks will ask you to take a picture of a blupee with your Sheikah Slate. Once you have found a blupee, you'll have to sneak up on it, and wearing armor that gives you a stealth bonus can be helpful here. Take a picture of the rabbit when you're close enough, then return to Peeks and he'll reward you with a Silver Rupee. You can also shoot a blupee with an arrow, and it'll drop a ton of rupees you can collect.
