Locations and Uses
Similar to Pots 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. They commonly appear in the Dark World of A Link to the Past and Lorule of A Link Between Worlds, where they replace common objects like Pots and Rocks.
In some games, Link 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. In Twilight Princess, some Bubbles camouflage themselves as ordinary Skulls, only to grow wings and take flight when approached.
