Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is stacked with characters to play as. Each comes with their own weapons, abilities, and styles of play, adding plenty of depth to the game.
Each one will be unlocked in a different way, so in this guide, we will run through how to get them all. Obviously, you get to play as Link from the start, so nothing special needs to be done to unlock the character.
Impa will unlock for you as part of the Battle of Hyrule Field mission.
You will get access to Zelda during the Guardian Amok mission.
To unlock Mipha, you will need to complete her specific mission in chapter two. You can find this at Zora’s Domain in Lanaryu. You will get access to this in Chapter 2.
You can unlock Uborsa by finishing her mission at Gerudo Town in Gerudo. You will get access to this in Chapter 2.
To unlock Daruk, you will need to finish his mission at Death Mountain in Eldin, which can be found in the northeast of the map. You will get access to this in Chapter 2.

The Great Fairies
There is a lot to do to unlock the Great Fairies. During Chapter 4 you will get access to “Offering Help on the Road”, which will give you access to “Trial of the Great Fairies”. You’ll need to then finish the “Fairy Fountain” challenges, of which there are three, and beat the Great Fairy at the end of each one.
