The newest inventor in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom donned Doc Brown’s lab coat Back to the future Where they tried to create a car and use it to go back in time. Unfortunately, this experiment didn’t work out as planned, because Zonai’s technology isn’t quite as durable as the DeLorean’s and can’t make it to the finish line.
One of the best aspects of Tears of the Kingdom is the ability to create all kinds of interesting machines, from mech suits to cars. Some players have even built a TIE Fighter from Star Wars in Tears of the Kingdom, allowing it to fly across the skies of Hyrule before crashing to the ground, as Link didn’t have enough battery charge to keep it afloat.

Kingdom Tears can’t handle the DeLorean
Kingdom Tears has moved from Star Wars to Back to the Future, thanks to Zonai’s latest invention popping up online. A Twitter user named Miguel Arguelles shared a video of their attempt to create a DeLorean to harness the power of lightning in an attempt to go back in time like they did in Back to the Future.
In this version of Tears of the Kingdom, Link creates a car and drives it through a thunderstorm in Hyrule. This was a necessary component of Back to the Future, as the lightning provided enough power for the flux capacitor to allow it to travel through time. Unfortunately, Link and his car were not safe from the lightning, so Link was killed instantly when the car hit.
At least the creator did a great job building the DeLorean in Tears of the Kingdom. The most notable aspect of the DeLorean’s design is that the doors lift up instead of out, which can be recreated in the TotK using slabs of rock and the ability of the Ultrahand, where they can be stuck to the roof of the car.

The time travel plot might not have worked, but anyone can go back in time by picking up Breath of the Wild, or any other Zelda game, where Tears of the Kingdom takes place at the end of the timeline. They could also recreate that story by playing Age of Calamity, as the whole premise of that game involved sending a ranger named Terrako back in time to prevent the events of Breath of the Wild from happening. All Terrako needs now is a Marty McFly jacket to complete his look.
