Fall Damage Prevention

It is possible to prevent fall damage in Breath of the Wild by abusing the force unequip functionality of this game.

Weapon throw method

Discovered by Baffan

After jumping off, hold R (standard) to pull out your melee weapon and get into the throw animation. Before hitting the ground (not precise), let go of R and immediately force unequip your weapon with the D-Pad.
The animation of Link putting away the weapon will cancel the fall damage.

This can also be done by force unequpping your shield.
