Breath of the Wild has a robust physics engine and a whole lot of things are possible. Using a scale puzzle from the Yah Rin Shrine we can see how much link weighs compared to other objects.

The experiment is quite simple, drop apples on one side of the scale and put Link on the other. Repeat this until the scales are balanced. At apple number 9 things were starting to get even but it took 10 apples to balance the scales almost perfectly. What does this mean? Well looks can be deceiving and Link with his Master Sword, Hylian Shield, full armor and a bow equipped amount to about 10 apples in weight.

Short video below shows the process.
