Just in case you thought we got past the worst of the Internet shenanigans at launch Ganondorf’s new look for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdomthen we hate to say it, but that was just the beginning.

It turns out that within a week of the game’s release, many, many people have fallen in love with a character other than the lovely Gerudo, and that’s none other than everyone’s favorite tech lab director Pura.

Wait, wasn’t that the 124-year-old Sheikha z A breath of wild naturede-aged to have the appearance of a child? Yes, that one. Only this Purah continued the updated design we saw earlier Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and the internet seems, uhhhh, affected.

Purah at TOTK has a new pair of chic red glasses, a new hairdo and a complete wardrobe makeover and it’s safe to say that people are really into this new look.

First Ganondorf, now Pura. We’re not going to lie, these weren’t the characters we initially thought would be the sites of so many, um, delight, but here we are. Who will be next, I wonder?
