I was planning to do a 100% completion run, including a full Hyrule Compendium. About halfway through the game, I realized I never took a picture of my first dungeon boss. I didn't worry too much at first, since you can buy additional pictures in Hateno, but now that I bought every single monster picture available, that boss is still missing (as well as a few others, which I assume to be the final boss and some special enemies I haven't seen yet).

Is there any way to still get a picture of dungeon bosses and complete the compendium? Obviously I don't have any save files from before I fought that boss, and even if I did, I'd have to pretty much re-do the entire game.

You will have the opportunity to purchase the missing boss pictures from Symin at the Ancient Hateno Tech Lab. They will cost 500 rupees each and will only be available after you beat the game. Just look for the Elite Enemy Picture set when buying pictures.

There's no "New Game+" as of yet but your saves will have a star next to them once the game recognizes that you have beaten the game.


If you have the DLC and haven't beat the illusory realm blight Gannons yet in order to upgrade your hero powers you can take a picture of them for your compendium. That will give you a second chance to photograph those "Elite" enemies if you don't want to buy the pictures.

  • I believe you can re-enter all the divine beasts and kill the blights as many times as you want in the DLC.
