NOTE: This thread is ONLY for request submissions with the below criteria, this is NOT an "idea" thread to discuss what categories other runners should run. Any non-request submission will be deleted.

If you want to talk about ideas, see this thread: https://www.speedrun.com/botw/thread/odu09

Hi, welcome to the Breath of the Wild Category Extensions Leaderboard! Here we will house all the fun categories you can come up with.

When requesting a category, please provide the following:

1. An explanation of the category and its rules.
2. At least 3 runs by different runners, video proof required.

Please keep in mind that the category should be meaningful and should not be stupidly arbitrary (ie, 3 Korok Seeds, 1 Tower, 2 Divine Beasts RTA).

If the requirements are met your category most likely will be added to the leaderboard!

Die% - drowning and Dank%

Drown: Die by drowning in water
1. Ice water doesn't count as it is too similar to regular die% - ice water
2. You must game over

Dank%: Do weapon smuggling with a lit torch so it looks like Link is smoking
1. The torch must be lit

Drown has 3 runs
Dank has 4
Runs:
DANK%:

Any% damageless (amiibo and no amiibo I guess)

Rules:
1. Same goal as any%
2. If you take damage of any kind your run is invalid, even if you reload after taking damage
3. Reloading just before taking damage is allowed and doesn't make the run invalid
4. Taking damage is any occasion where Link loses a quarter of a heart or more

Runs:
Wolhaiksong

Applefreezer

Zelkys

Just an idea: put Go Home and Die as a subcat for Die%?

How about DLC% where you complete just the DLC stuff.

Timer starts on a new save file and ends when you complete the last thing in the DLC stuff. (like hundo)

This should be a thing. And I should run it later this week, when I have time.

You’re not supposed to discuss categories

Kill the GP lynel as fast as possible from new game. Timing starts when gaining control over Link.
Gen8603
@PecoPeco
@CHCYu-DaCHCYu-Da
I'm not sure if I got the names right...
Timer ends when the lynel roars and rears up.
I didn't make the category, it was @ifuroifuro, I'm just posting the final thing.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, the lynel cannot be pushed off the cliff or any circumstance that is like that.

 
  KwrpKwrp

You have to state more rules

 
  KomaliKomali

Guys don’t discuss categories that is not what this is for

Yes, please refrain from posting anything that isn't category submitions.

I'll submit the category as soon as possible! @AsombrosoAsombroso

Edit: It's been submitted as "Great Plateau Lynel"

(originally thought of by @MorningMaxMorningMax iirc)
Boko% - kill a boko as fast as possible
Start timing from new game
Timing ends the frame that the boko's health reaches 0 (health bar being empty or the first frame of the final hit)
Runs:
@KomaliKomali: 1:34.067
@RandomGamerNXRandomGamerNX: 1:47.833
@YoshirunsYoshiruns: 1:50.833
