Sheikah Stones are recurring objects in The Legend of Zelda series.[2] They give Link Visions and hints on how to solve puzzles, find secrets, and defeat Bosses on his adventure, provided he has reached a point in his quest close to accessing the subject.[3]

Location and Uses

Ocarina of Time 3D

In Ocarina of Time 3D, Sheikah Stones have a passage at the bottom for entry. One Sheikah Stone can be found outside Link's House and another one in the Temple of Time, as these are the two starting points upon resuming a saved game. If Link talks to one, he will have the option to crawl inside it to bring up the Visions screen. Both Sheikah Stones are absent in the Master Quest version of the game.

Skyward Sword

In Skyward Sword, after Link obtains the Practice Sword, a Sheikah Stone will appear and talk to him outside the Sparring Hall. From then on, the hero can summon a Gossip Stone by playing the "Ballad of the Goddess" wherever a group of Blessed Butterflies appear.

If Link is playing in Hero Mode, the Sheikah Stone will provide him all of the hints upon their first encounter.[4]

Just like the Gossip Stones, Sheikah Stones react to different items:

Majora's Mask 3D

In Majora's Mask 3D, a Sheikah Stone appears inside the Clock Tower where the Happy Mask Salesman is located. If Link talks to it, he will have the option to crawl inside it to bring up the Visions screen.
