How To Reawaken A Great Fairy
To reawaken a Great Fairy, you need to find it and pay it a specific amount of rupees. At first, you have to pay 100 rupees, but as you meet more, the cost starts to increase, regardless of the order you reawaken them. There are four Great Fairies in total: Cotera, Kaysa, Tera, and Mija.
If you oblige a Great Fairy with the rupees it requests, she can upgrade the defensive power of your armor using components you find out in the world. For example, to enhance the Hylian Tunic, she requires Bokoblin Horns. The more Great Fairies you reawaken, the higher the upgrade tier you can access for armor. It's also important to note that an armor set gains a special bonus after a Great Fairy enhances each part twice.
Check the table below for a reference of how the cost and upgrade tier access increases with each successive Great Fairy you reawaken:
