Stone Taluses (Luminous) are recurring Enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1]


Breath of the Wild[]

Hyrule Compendium Entry

138 (143) Stone Talus (Luminous)
BotW Hyrule Compendium Stone Talus (Luminous)
This enormous monster is naturally camouflaged as a rock formation. Neither sword nor arrow can pierce its stony form, but a cunning adventurer knows to scale its body and attack the ore sprouting from its peak. Unlike your average Stone Talus, this type's ore deposit consists mostly of luminous stone.
Common Locations
Gerudo Highlands
Hyrule Field
Recoverable Materials
Flint Amber Opal Luminous Stone Topaz Diamond

Stone Taluses (Luminous) are variations of Stone Taluses, with the notable difference that the Ore Deposit on their body is instead a Luminous Stone Deposit. Like all Taluses, the only way to damage a Stone Talus (Luminous) is to strike its Ore Deposit with a weapon. They're particularly vulnerable to Iron Sledgehammers and other mining tools as well as Bomb Arrows.

The Medal of Honor: Talus can be obtained from Kilton by defeating all Stone Taluses (Luminous) as well as all other variations of Talus in Hyrule Kingdom. This can only be done after defeating Calamity Ganon and completing the "Destroy Ganon" Main Quest.


Tears of the Kingdom[]

Luminous Stone Taluses are set to reappear in Tears of the Kingdom, most likely acting the same as in Breath of the Wild.

Other Appearances[]

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity[]

Luminous Stone Taluses reappear in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, only appearing in the Hunting for Gemstones side quest along with Stone Talus (Rare). They fight identically to regular Stone Taluses, and like in Breath of the Wild, drop various rare materials, such as Rubys and Sapphires.
