Location and Uses
While many Statues are simply decorative, some are able to be moved or destroyed by Link in a variety of ways in order to press Switches or open new pathways. Other Statues are capable of autonomous movement and serve as Enemies.
There are also a number of specific and notable Statues in the series.
The Legend of Zelda
A Link to the Past
Oracle of Seasons
Oracle of Ages
The Wind Waker
Four Swords Adventures
The Minish Cap
In The Minish Cap, there are three Mysterious Statues in Castor Wilds with whom Link can Fuse golden Kinstone Pieces. Statues resembling Minister Potho appear outside Funday School, with one inside being movable to access a portion of the Hyrule Underground.
A number of Statues appear in Dungeons to assist in solve puzzles, or to serve as decoration. In Dark Hyrule Castle, there are a number of Stone Statues that hinder Link's progress, and can only be destroyed by reflecting their own cannonballs back at them.
In Twilight Princess, Link can use the Dominion Rod to control Mechanical Statues and Horned Statuettes. Statues are important in Link's quest to help Ilia; six Owl Statues hold the missing characters from the Ancient Sky Book, and the Wooden Statue is an Item used to restore Ilia's memory.
Tri Force Heroes
In Tri Force Heroes, Link can Save his progress by checking the Tri Force Hero Statue in the center of Hytopia's village. The Serpent's Toga also allows the Links to temporarily transform into a Statue when standing still, rendering them invincible to most threats.
In the Stone Corridors Level, the Links make use of several Anubis-like Statues in order to press down Floor Switches, block the paths of Spiketraps, and weigh down tilting platforms. They can be picked up with the Boomerang and blown a short distance with the Gust Jar. The Level's Boss, Vulture Vizier, will occasionally drop some of these Statues onto the tilting platform where the battle takes place.
