Bones are recurring Objects in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][name reference needed][2]

Location and Uses

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, piles of Bones can be found in rocky or sandy areas like caverns and Yarna Desert. There is a pile of Bone in CiaoCiao's hut.

Twilight Princess

Bones can be found in Hyrule Castle Town on the southeast road beside a dog. The Bone can be picked up and thrown. If thrown, the nearby dog will chase after it, wagging its tail.[3] If Link throws the Bone near some bushes, the dog may bring back Rupees instead.[verification needed]
