Spiketraps,(TPHD)[1] also known as Spiked-Log Traps,(OoT)[2][name references needed] and Rolling Pins,(ALBW)[3] are recurring traps in The Legend of Zelda series. Spiketraps go unnamed in A Link to the Past, Link's Awakening, Majora's Mask, Oracle of Seasons, The Minish Cap, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and Tri Force Heroes.


A Link to the Past

Link's Awakening

A Spiketrap is used by the mini-boss of Tail Cave, Spike Roller, in Link's Awakening. Link must jump over the trap with the Roc's Feather in order to avoid damage.

Ocarina of Time

Spiketraps are found in several Dungeons in Ocarina of Time. Spiketraps found Inside the Deku Tree are unique in that they do not move along a path, only spinning in place above a pool of water. The puzzle in the room with the trap requires going underneath it aboard a floating platform in order to pass through the room.

Majora's Mask

Spiketraps appear in several places in Majora's Mask. Spiketraps found Beneath the Well do not always bounce back and forth at the same speed, but do move in patterns that might have to be judged in order to get past them safely.

Oracle of Seasons

The Minish Cap

Twilight Princess

Spiketraps appear within the Temple of Time in Twilight Princess. They can be demolished by using the Dominion Rod on the resident statue, then using its hammer to smash the obstacles in one hit.

Phantom Hourglass

Spirit Tracks

Spiketraps appear in the Sand Temple in Spirit Tracks. Link can halt their movement using the Sand Wand and walk across them to reach new parts of the Dungeon.

A Link Between Worlds

Rolling Pins appear in several Dungeons in A Link Between Worlds. In the House of Gales, Link must use the Tornado Rod to make well-timed "jumps" over some Rolling Pins. In the Swamp Palace, he must swim underneath one en route to obtaining the Blue Mail. In Turtle Rock, he simply needs to dodge several of them on the pathway to Grinexx's lair.

Tri Force Heroes

Spiketraps appear solely in Stone Corridors in Tri Force Heroes. In the second part of this Level, a short Spiketrap rolls through a narrow hallway, followed by a wider Trap in a square-shaped room. The Links can throw an Anubis-like stone statue in the Traps' paths to limit their range of movement, allowing the Links to pass. Alternately, striking a Spiketrap with the Boomerang will reverse its direction.


The Spiketraps' Japanese name, トゲロール (Togerōru) in A Link to the Past and トゲローラー (Togerōrā) in Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, contains the word 棘 (Toge), referring to its spiked surface.
