Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Fire Keese has an interesting reaction to rain

Take shelter.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has received a lot of accolades over its open-ended structure and unique physics engine. Indeed, all the elements react as one would expect in the real world. Flint creates fire, fire creates wind, and water douses fire.

Given the game's elemental dynamics, it's often a liability to find yourself in a downpour. You can't climb water-slicked slopes worth a damn, and lighting will be lured towards you should any metallic gear be equipped. But there is one good thing about the rain in Hyrule: it has an adverse effect on the flaming one-eyed bat known as the Fire Keese.

How adverse? In this clip by Redditor pkbronsonb we see the precipitation extinguish the Fire Keese's flaming wings. That's too be expected. What one might not anticipate is that if you keep the Fire Keese flapping about in this weather the monsoon will actually kill the blazing beast.

And you thought you had it bad in the rain.
