Unofficial Name

Ice Blocks are recurring objects in The Legend of Zelda series. They are typically blocks of ice that will continue to slide once pushed and are used frequently in puzzles.


The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Ice Blocks appear in Ice Cavern and Inside Ganon's Castle. They typically must be pushed against walls or rocks and climbed to reach Silver Rupees. Should Link accidentally push an Ice Block off the ice, a new one will automatically come out of the ice floor.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Link can create Ice Blocks to climb by shooting a Blue ChuChu or Octorok with an Ice Arrow. This is essential for completing Great Bay Temple and crossing Ikana Canyon.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons

Ice Blocks are found in the Sword & Shield Maze. They must be pushed into certain spots to solve puzzles.

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Ice Block (The Minish Cap) Ice Block (Small Key) Ice Block (Boss Key) Ice Blocks are located in several rooms of the Temple of Droplets and are used to push together and onto switches to solve puzzles. Ice Blocks can be melted if pushed into Sunlight or when hit by the Flame Lantern. Occasionally, there are Treasure Chests and other items inside Ice Blocks, including the Boss Key.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Ice Blocks as such do not appear in Twilight Princess; instead, they are visually large constructions of metal encased in ice, but perform the same function as the other games due to the icy floors found beneath them. In Snowpeak Ruins, Link uses the Ball and Chain to break the ice encasing "Ice Blocks" so that he can manipulate them and advance through the dungeon. Additionally, Ice Blocks appear in several hidden Hidden Holes around Hyrule.
