Skeletons, also known as Fallen Adventurers[1], are recurring Objects in The Legend of Zelda series.[name reference needed]


Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, Link finds piles of bones and Skeletons in various places. Most are found in graves in the Graveyard, outside Ganon's Castle, in the Shadow Temple and at the Bottom of the Well. They sometimes give valuable information, and also makes Fairies appear if Link plays the Song of Storms next to them.

Phantom Hourglass

Fallen Adventurers are the piles of bones located mainly in the Temple of the Ocean King in Phantom Hourglass. They give Link hints or information about the floor he is on. The three Fallen Adventurers in the entrance give Link hints about the entire Temple of the Ocean King, for a Rupees. Many Fallen Adventurers tell how they died, so that Link can avoid a similar fate. On a few occasions, Ciela will call Link over to a Fallen Adventurer, which will give him vital information. These Fallen Adventurers are identical to the collapsed bodies of Stalfos.

Other Appearances

Link's Crossbow Training

In Link's Crossbow Training, Skeletons appear in the Arbiter's Grounds: Ranger stage and the Skulltula Forest: Ranger stage. Link can shoot the Skeleton with the Crossbow for one point per hit up to six shots. Upon the sixth shot, the Skeleton will break and Link will be given 5 points instead of 1, with a total of 10 points. If Link shoots the Skeleton with a Exploding Arrow, he will obtain 6 points and destroy the Skeleton instantly.

In the Arbiter's Grounds: Ranger stage, two Skeletons lie at the back of the path taken by Link behind a roasting Bullbo and a watchtower used by a Bulblin. In the Skulltula Forest: Ranger stage, one Skeleton lies behind a Scarecrow in the back of the forest, while another rests along the left wall of the starting area. The Skeleton along the left wall will also make an Orange Rupee appear when destroyed.
