Owl Statues are a recurring object in The Legend of Zelda series.

Appearances

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, Owl Statues are scattered across Koholint Island. They tell Link information that may be helpful, or may be completely useless.

In Link's Awakening DX, Owl Statues are located inside every dungeon. After Link finds a Stone Beak, he can receive hints from Owl Statues to help him solve puzzles pertaining to the dungeon. They replace Stone Slabs and Fragments, which served the same function in the original version.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, Owl Statues are made in the likeness of Kaepora Gaebora,[1] who resides in Termina. After learning the "Song of Soaring", Link can warp to any Owl Statue he has activated; the statues are activated by striking them with a Sword. They also serve as save points where Link can save and quit, although they are temporary saves, as the only way to fully save is by playing the "Song of Time." When Link saves in an Owl Statue, an Owl mark will appear next to the game file.

In Majora's Mask 3D, Owl Statues need to be checked instead of hit with the Sword to activate them, and now permanently save Link's progress. Additionally, some Owl Statues were relocated. Quill Statues, a new type of statue, were also added; these statues allow saving, but cannot be warped to with the "Song of Soaring."[2] Quill Statues appear all across Termina, including inside dungeons.

Oracles Owl Statue Open.png

In Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, giving a Mystery Seed to a statue will cause it to raise its wings and give advice on a nearby challenge.[3] In Holodrum, Owl Statues are known as Owl Stones.[4]

Twilight Princess

Owl Statue from Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, Owl Statues hold the missing Sky Characters from the Ancient Sky Book.[5] After Ilia's memory is restored, Shad, who is studying an Owl Statue in Renado's Basement, will see the Ancient Sky Book that Link received from Impaz. He will then proceed to read a part of the book to restore power to the Dominion Rod. Link must then search for all remaining statues to find the missing Sky Characters.

Locations

In addition to these, five more Owl Statues can be found. The first one is located in Renado's basement near Shad, although it lacks a hole to react to the Dominion Rod. The other two are located in the cemetery of Hyrule Castle. They do not hide Sky Characters, but allow Link access to a Key. The final pair are found in the first part of the Temple of Time. One blocks the path to a Heart Piece, while the other hides a Poe.

Hyrule Warriors Series



In Hyrule Warriors, Owl Statues from Twilight Princess appear as part of Zelda's moveset while wielding the Dominion Rod. They also appear on the Termina Map in Adventure Mode. When a Scenario with an Owl Statue is completed, it will open its wings and enable the battle square (and others around it in a cross shape) to be unaffected if the map is reset when using the "Song of Time" Item Card, or if the Moon falls.

In Hyrule Warriors Legends, Owl Statues can be used in conjunction with a golden Ocarina. Warriors can place statues somewhere in the map, which can be later reached immediately by playing the Ocarina. Playing the Ocarina warps the Warrior to the Owl Statue via a cyclone.
