Ocarina of Time Gossip Stones


Fun With Gossip Stones
Gossip Stones are rocks with the "truth symbol," (which looks kinda like a face,) painted on them. Little is known about these mystical, giggling stones and their true purpose. At first glance, there's a bunch of funny things you can do to them.

Smack them with your sword to make them giggle, bounce around for a moment, then tell you what time of day it is.

Squish them with the Megaton Hammer. They pop back out after a moment and tell you the time.

Shoot them with a projectile, like the Fairy Bow, Hookshot, Fairy Slingshot or Boomerang. It makes them wiggle about.

Use Din's Fire to make them spin around and grow, Mario-style, momentarily.

Play either Zelda's Lullaby or the Song of Storms to make a fairy appear. Awesome way to fill up your bottles if you see one of these stones nearby!

Use an explosion like Bombs or Bombchus to make them start blinking. You can slash them as they change colors to make them stay that color, or you can let their countdown finish and they'll take off like a rocket. Goodbye! *wave*
