|Stalagmites and Stalactites|
These ice formations, usually seen in caverns of sub-zero temperatures, appear fairly often in The Legend of Zelda series, although they only interact with the environment in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Unlike ice chunks, stalagmites will not freeze Link when touched; they are simple barriers that can be destroyed using a Sword or another weapon. Occasionally, stalactites may fall on Link as he passes under them, causing him to take damage.
Chunkier stalactites can often be knocked down by Arrows. This can be used to Link's advantage by making the stalactite falling onto ice chunks below, shattering them and clearing the obstacle. In Twilight Princess regular (non-icy) stalactites appear in the Lakebed Temple. They can be knocked down using Bomb Arrows and can, once embedded in the ground, can be used as platforms to reach higher ledges.
