The Gerudo are a race and tribe inhabiting the deserts of Hyrule and it's neighboring lands.


The gerudo are a human race of mostly females with a male being born every 100 years.

Culture and Society[]

They are feared by most desert dwellers. They have tattoos believed to be tribe markings. They have an Arabic culture often using bows, swords and other weapons. By other races they are referred to as thieves or pirates. They only appreciate non-gerudo people that can handle a fight. Nabooru is the gerudo sage.In Gerudo culture, the tribe is usually seen all living together in large forts and blockhouses, sometimes in tents. Their main deity is the Goddess of the Sand, and women fulfill any role in society from architect to warrior. The Gerudo are highly devout worshippers of the Sand Goddess, as they have constructed a huge monument both on the exterior and interior of the Spirit Temple in the middle of the Haunted Wasteland.


In recent times, the gerudo population has become unknown. Many adventurers and natives to Hyrule believe that beyond the Gerudo Desert mountains lies the remainder of the tribe. This speculation has yet to be proven and the gerudo races' status remains unknown.
