Stone Statues are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]

Characteristics

Stone Statues are tall, sometimes fire-breathing, rock monoliths scattered abundantly about the many Dungeons in The Legend of Zelda series. These Statues reflect the motif of the Dungeon in which they appear, expressing it in the form of individualistic symbolism and decoration. While statues of stone appear in all The Legend of Zelda titles to date, only some games have any that are significant. In some cases, these Statues act as solitary enemies, shooting balls of fire at Link whenever he is in close proximity.

Traps and Stone Statues

Somebody placed these in the labyrinth a long time ago. They suddenly attack Link when he approaches them. So you've really got to watch out!

The Adventure of Link



A Link to the Past



Link's Awakening



Oracle of Seasons



Stone Statues in Oracle of Seasons can "watch" Link as he navigates through Dungeons, a trait that the Statues in other titles do not have.

Oracle of Ages



Stone Statues in Oracle of Ages can "watch" Link as he navigates through Dungeons, a trait that the Statues in other titles do not have.

The Wind Waker

Stone Statues in The Wind Waker appear as Moblin-shaped statues in the Forsaken Fortress and the Savage Labyrinth, extending from the walls. Though they brandish spears, if they spot or smell Link, they will attempt to destroy him with other means; the Statues that inhabit the Forsaken Fortress will attempt to strike him with laser beams from their noses, similarly to Beamos, while the Statues that reside within the 50th floor of the Savage Labyrinth will generate fire from their mouths.

Four Swords Adventures



The Minish Cap

Stone Statues in The Minish Cap appear in Dark Hyrule Castle, where they persistently fire Bombs in a manner similar to Warships from The Wind Waker. These Bombs can be deflected to destroy the Stone Statues, though Link must first split himself with the power of the Four Sword to destroy all the Statues in the room simultaneously to proceed.
