Stone Heads are massive head shaped stones that appear in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.

Head Stones are obstacles that Link encounters on his journeys on the Great Sea. They are impervious to Bombs and the Skull Hammer, forcing Link to find another way to remove them. He eventually finds a way to remove them after obtaining the Power Bracelets from Fire Mountain, which grant him the strength to lift and throw them, granting him access to new areas such as Hidden Holes and the Savage Labyrinth.
