Infinte Sprinting Without Depleting Stamina
Sprint forever by holding the "whistle" button (down) and pressing the "B" button repeatedly. Link will sprint forever and never tire. This is slightly slower than regular sprinting, so alternating between the two in a way that balances the stamina circle is the best method.
One Shot Ganon
When going to the final boss room in Hyrule castle, go onto the stairs (side doesn't matter). When you get there, jump off and activate bullet time. Make sure you go forwards when you jump. Shoot 3 Ancient arrows at the middle of the room right before the Ganon cutscene starts, and the first phase will be completed.
Prevent Star Fragments from Disappearing
Star Fragments disappear come morning. Sit by a campfire until night to skip morning/daytime to make it night again, and the Star Fragment won't disappear. This allows you more time to track down and pick up the Star Fragment.

Amiibo Rare Unlockables
You can scan each Amiibo once per day. A few of them have rare items. Each time, you have a random chance of the Amiibo dropping its rare item. All of the Tunics are actually 3-part armor sets (Cap, Tunic and Leggings). Some items only appear after obtaining the Paraglider (including Epona) or after completing one Divine Beast dungeon. Note: Epona is guaranteed to drop the first time you scan SSB Link, but it only ever happens once per save game. You should only summon Epona if you have access to a Stable to keep her permanently.

Change Chuchu Jelly Type
You can change Chuchu jelly types by using different elements on them.
Fire will get you red jelly, ice will get you white jelly, and lightning will get you yellow jelly.
There are several weapons will elemental properties in the game that work well for this. You can also roast/freeze Chuchu jelly like you would food (drop in fire or freezing water) to get red/white jelly.
Normally once conditions for Blood Moon are met, the Blood Moon will rise upcoming midnight gametime, regardless of you pass time via bed or fire. However, the scene will not happen while you are in a Shrine, thus will occur the following midnight. So if you want delay Blood Moon to the following day, Just go into any Shrine and wait for midnight to pass. This can be done repeatedly so you do the game with no Blood moons at all.

Easily Tame Horses
If you shoot a horse with an ice arrow and approach it from behind, you can mash A when it unfreezes, and mount immediately. After you do that, simply mash L to tame your horse.
Easy Arrows (Post Patch)
To the west of Eventide Island is a small island with a pool in the middle. Use Magnesis to pull up a chest with 10 arrows, then save your game before reloading that save. The chest will respawn, allowing you to get more arrows. Repeat until you have what you need.
Easy Arrows (Pre-Patch)
To get a lot of arrows easily, find a relatively flat area with a few Bokoblin Archers on horseback, like south of the Tenah Ko'sah shrine in the Tabantha region. Get them to notice you, then angle the camera to a top-down view. If done right, the archers will shoot all around you, but never actually hit you. You can easily farm hundreds of arrows this way with no damage after a few in-game hours.
Infinite Master Sword Re-Charge (Master Sword Trials Only)
Whenever you are using the Master Sword, and the "Low on Energy" warning appears. Fast travel to Korok Forest, and start the Master Sword trials, then while in the trial quit and cancel out back to the Korok Forest. The Master Sword should be fully recharged.

Infinite Stamina While Climbing
While climbing any uneven surface such as mountains, you can tap "B", while pushing up, on any surface at or below 80 degrees. This will cause Link to begin running, allowing your stamina bar to refill on an edge you could otherwise not stand on. Just tap "B" right after link grabs the wall/cliff face and slide along this slope until your stamina refills on long climbs.

Smoke Out Bees for Honey
If you want to knock down a bee hive but don't want to blow it up, you can act like a real life bee keeper. If you light a fire under a bee hive, or hold a lit torch under one, the bees will flee the hive leaving its contents to you.

This is fairly simple to accomplish. Simply take a Spicy Pepper (some types of mushroom also work) and light it on fire. Anything from a torch to a fire arrow to a Flameblade will work. As it burns, it will create an updraft that Link can use to get to higher areas that have been previously inaccessible, whether from stamina limits or other limitations. It can also work with 4 or more wood clumped together, but it is more resource intensive.
Eventide Island Made Easy
On Eventide Island, if you drop things on the raft before stepping off of it onto the island, they will still be there after the cut scene. Use this to make clearing the island a breeze.

Skip Rin Oyaa Shrine Puzzle
To skip the puzzle, take the orb and stand in the middle of where the orb is supposed to go. Put the orb down and use the Stasis Rune to freeze it. Then, run up to the platform that rises up and wait for the rune to wear off. The orb will roll into it's place, raising the platform and thus, skipping the puzzle entirely.
