Traps and Stone Statues
Somebody placed these in the labyrinth a long time ago. They suddenly attack Link when he approaches them. So you've really got to watch out!

In The Legend of Zelda, Stone Statues are tall, sometimes fire-breathing, rock monoliths scattered abundantly in Dungeons. They reflect the motif of the Dungeon in which they appear, expressing it in the form of individualistic symbolism and decoration.

A Link to the Past

Link's Awakening

Oracle of Seasons

Stone Statues in Oracle of Seasons can "watch" Link as he navigates through Dungeons, a trait that the Statues in other titles do not have.

Oracle of Ages

Eye Blocks in Oracle of Ages can "watch" Link as he navigates through Dungeons, a trait that the Statues in other titles do not have.

The Wind Waker

Stone Statues in The Wind Waker appear as Moblin-shaped statues in the Forsaken Fortress and the Savage Labyrinth, extending from the walls. Though they brandish spears, if they spot or smell Link, they will attempt to destroy him with other means; the Statues that inhabit the Forsaken Fortress will attempt to strike him with laser beams from their noses, similarly to Beamos, while the Statues that reside within the 50th floor of the Savage Labyrinth will generate fire from their mouths.

Four Swords Adventures

The Minish Cap

Stone Statues in The Minish Cap appear in Dark Hyrule Castle, where they persistently fire Bombs in a manner similar to Warships from The Wind Waker. These Bombs can be deflected to destroy the Stone Statues, though Link must first split himself with the power of the Four Sword to destroy all the Statues in the room simultaneously to proceed.

Spirit Tracks

Breath of the Wild

Stone Statues are depictions of Hylians that are commonly found throughout Hyrule Kingdom.[2] The purpose with which they were placed is unknown.[2] In Akkala, Central Hyrule, Faron, Hebra, Lanayru, and parts of Necluda, they are used to mark the locations of Offering Spots. Similarly, a pair of Stone Statues west of the Deya Village Ruins hide some Leaves with Fairy Dust. These same Statues are also included in the Picture associated with the "Shelter from the Storm" Recovered Memory.

An Ancient Text refers to a Stone Statue as being cursed, and it states that one should "pierce its gaze" to reveal an Ancient Shrine.[4] During "The Cursed Statue" Shrine Quest, Link can approach the grove of Stone Statues near Fort Hateno at night to find one has glowing eyes. If Link shoots this Statue with an Arrow, Kam Urog Shrine will emerge from the ground, completing the Quest.[5]

Other Appearances
