"You got a Skull Tower Idol! It's made of the fossilized skulls of strange creatures. It's pretty weird."
— In-game description

The Skull Tower Idol is an item from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It is one of the items in the quest for the Shop Guru Statue. If Link trades the Traveling Merchant on the Greatfish Isle a Fountain Idol, he will receive the Skull Tower Idol. It can be traded to the merchant on Bomb Island and Greatfish Isle for a Fountain Idol or traded with the merchant on the Mother & Child Isles for a Big Sale Flag. Interestingly, unlike the other trading items in the Quest for the Shop Guru Statue, the Skull Tower Idol is not needed to finish the quest.


The Skull Tower Idol appears as a totem pole like item with three skulls upon a bone post. Interestingly, the top of the skull resembles a Bubble from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Given the description of it being made of "fossilized skulls of strange creatures", this may indeed be what it is.
