The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an open world video game where the character Link can use a paraglider to soar over Hyrule. After calculating the terminal velocity of Link's vertical fall speed with the paraglider open, we found that the air density at sea level is approximately 200 kg m^(-3), with a pressure of 16800 kPa. We compared this pressure to that of a diver on Earth and found that this atmospheric pressure is greater than the maximum depth any scuba diver on Earth has reached.
