The Stone Tower is a location in Majora's Mask, located at the northeastern edge of Ikana Canyon, east of Termina.

Features and Overview

The exterior of Stone Tower

The Tower consists of three merged stone buildings, all of which are slightly reminiscent of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The tower is so large it can be seen from the Goron Village of Snowhead and even as far as Romani Ranch. It is filled with a large chasm, blocks, and pressure switches. Boulders constantly fall here, making the climb to the top a hazardous one. Near the entrance to the Stone Tower Temple, there is a nearly inaccessible ledge that supports three ReDeads which do not move, and give red Rupees when defeated. Twelve Jars that contain Fairies and small amounts of Magic can also be found here. To reach this ledge, Link can either Hookshot onto the ReDeads or play the "Scarecrow's Song" near the ledge.

To reach the top, Link must make use of the "Elegy of Emptiness" taught to him by Igos du Ikana.[1] The melody, which makes replicas of each of Link's forms, is necessary to press the various switches around Stone Tower that make several platforms automatically move around the area, allowing the young hero to further continue his way up the Tower. Some of the switches must be pressed in a certain order, however; otherwise, the platforms will not move in the correct order, making it impossible for Link to progress.

Link must also make extensive use of his Hookshot to grab onto the higher areas of the Stone Tower that are unreachable even with the moving platforms. Once the young hero scales the chasm and reaches the top, he gains access to the Stone Tower Temple. At the base of the Temple, a curious Red Emblem can be found, which, when struck with the Light Arrow, possesses the power to completely flip everything inside the chasm upside down. Curiously, this does not affect the rest of Termina in any way.

In Majora's Mask 3D, the Red Emblem now hangs over the entrance.

Trivia

  • Closer observation to the dungeon map reveals that when the Red Emblem is hit, the Stone Tower Temple not only flips upside down, it does, in fact, mirror itself as well.
