Skulls are recurring objects in the The Legend of Zelda series.[1] In most games, they fulfill the same purpose as Jars.

Locations and Uses

Similar to Jars and Rocks, Skulls can be thrown or destroyed to find Hearts, Rupees, or other spare items like Arrows and Bombs. They can be found in many places, and are most commonly found in Dungeons, specially those which have a dark or crypt-like atmosphere to them.

In some games, Links may also encounter hostile Skulls blending in with the harmless, inanimate kind. Skull-like enemies called Stals hide amongst the Skulls found in both the Dark World and Lorule, and spring to life to attack Link when he ventures close.

A Link to the Past

Skulls commonly appear in the Dark World of A Link to the Past, where they replace common objects like Jars and Rocks.

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, Skulls can be found in the Yarna Desert.

The Wind Waker

The Minish Cap

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, some Bubbles camouflage themselves as ordinary Skulls, only to grow wings and take flight when approached.

Skyward Sword

A Link Between Worlds

In A Link Between Worlds, Skulls commonly appear in Lorule, where they replace common objects like Jars and Rocks. Inside some Dungeons are Skulls with a different appearance, including larger nasal cavities; these Skulls also appear in purple varieties which drop Energy Potions when destroyed.

Tri Force Heroes

In Tri Force Heroes, Skulls commonly appear in The Ruins, where they replace Rocks but appear alongside the common Jars. These Skulls come in both appearances from A Link Between Worlds, but do not come in the purple variety.
