This is the tower everyone visits first in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The top part of the tower can be destroyed after taking damage, but will come back eventually. You can spot a certain Old Man in the background, watching over the match...

Great Plateau Tower (始まりの塔, Tower of the Beginning) is an upcoming stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Stage overview[edit]

The stage is completely flat with a medium sized structure above the middle of the floor acting as a ceiling. The structure is destructible through various methods, such as damaging it normally or having an opponent collide against it when knocked back. The more knockback an opponent receives, the more damage it does to the structure itself. When destroyed, it gets replaced with a soft platform until it is eventually automatically rebuilt. When Stage Hazards are turned off, the structure cannot be destroyed. Occasionally, the Old Man paraglides onto the tower, stays for some time, and then paraglides away from the tower. He can also occasionally be seen gliding in the background behind the tower. He does not affect the battle.

Ω form and Battlefield form[edit]

The Ω form and Battlefield form are set on top of the tower similarly to its regular form; however, in both forms the stage is now suspended far above the ground with the top structure absent, and the main platform's walls resemble the bottom portion of the top structure. The stages are also resized and reshaped to match Final Destination and Battlefield, respectively. The three soft platforms of the Battlefield form are smaller versions of the soft platform in the regular form.

Origin[edit]

The Great Plateau Tower as it originally appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

This stage is based on the Great Plateau Tower from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is the first Sheikah Tower Link climbs and activates. Upon being activated, other Sheikah Towers begin to rise throughout Hyrule and Ancient Shrines activate. He also receives a detailed map of the Great Plateau region. Other Sheikah Towers also allow Link to have a map of the region in which the tower is located.

In the beginning of Breath of the Wild, the first person Link encounters after emerging from the Shrine of Resurrection is an Old Man who helps Link begin his journey by giving him items and tips about using the Sheikah Slate. After Link completes four Ancient Shrines, the Old Man reveals to him his true identity as the former king of Hyrule, King Rhoam. He tells Link the events leading up to him being in the Shrine of Resurrection, and gives him his paraglider to aid him on his journey to save Princess Zelda and Hyrule.

Trivia[edit]

View of Hyrule Castle from the Great Plateau Tower in Breath of the Wild.
  • The soft platform when the pillar gets destroyed has Sheikah letters on it. When the letters are put together, they spell out "Smash Bros.", similar to the Hylian text on Temple post-Brawl.
  • The view behind the tower does not match up with its appearance in Breath of the Wild. Hyrule Castle is almost directly to the left of the pedestal's face, while the castle is more so behind it in Smash.
