Sheikah Stones are recurring objects from The Legend of Zelda series. If interacted with, these large stones will provide Link with access to Visions, hint videos that reveal solutions to puzzles, locations of items, or weaknesses of certain enemies. Visions are unlocked individually as certain puzzles are attempted: each clip is marked with "New", a check mark, or "Clear", indicating that the vision has not yet been viewed, that it has been viewed, or that its associated puzzle has been solved, respectively. Sheikah Stones are engraved with the Sheikah emblem.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

Sheikah Stone

Sheikah Stones are found only in two areas of Hyrule: near Link's house in Kokiri Forest, and inside the Temple of Time. In order to see Visions, Link must crawl inside the stone itself. Sheikah Stones are not accessible in the game's Master Quest mode, however. When struck, they provide Link with the current in-game time, similar to Gossip Stones.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

One Sheikah Stone appears near the Sparring Hall in Skyloft after Link has acquired the Practice Sword, and another on Eldin Volcano when Link's gear has been stolen by Bokoblins, at which time he is prevented from traveling to Skyloft until he retrieves his items. Unlike in Ocarina of Time 3D, it is not required that Link crawls inside a Sheikah Stone to access the Visions screen; in fact, they communicate with him like any other character.

If the Sheikah Stone is shot with the Bow, a green Rupee comes out of it.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

Sheikah Stones can be found in Majora's Mask 3D for the 3DS. One is found in the clocktower, opposite of the stairs leading down into the sewer. It acts the same as in Ocarina of Time 3D, with Link having to crawl into them to see a vision.

Sonic: Lost World

In The Legend of Zelda Zone DLC for Sonic: Lost World, Sheikah Stones can be seen throughout the level, and rocket up into the sky after being touched by a Bomb Wisp.

Non-canon warning: Non-canonical information ends here.


Prior to the release of Ocarina of Time 3D, the term "Sheikah Stone" was often used synonymously with Gossip Stones, as these also bear the Sheikah emblem.
