Location and Uses
The Shard of Agony can be obtained as a reward from one of the cursed children of the House of Skulltula in Kakariko Village after destroying 20 Gold Skulltulas. In Ocarina of Time, once the Stone of Agony is obtained, the Rumble Pak will vibrate when close to a Secret Grotto. In the Wii Virtual Console version, since the Wii Classic Controller does not support rumble functionality, the item serves no purpose. In Ocarina of Time 3D, due to the lack of a rumble feature on the Nintendo 3DS, the Shard of Agony instead releases a pinging accompanied by a flashing icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
- According to the official Zelda series website, the Stone of Agony is a companion relic to the Lens of Truth.
- Although the Stone of Agony does not appear in Majora's Mask, the controller still vibrates when Link is close to a Secret Grotto or hidden Treasure Chest. In Majora's Mask 3D, the Mask of Truth can be worn to visually reveal the location of Secret Grottoes.

- "The Stone of Agony is the companion relic to the Lens of Truth. While the Lens allows its owner to see what normal eyes can not, the Stone lets its owner feel a powerful trembling when something strange is near. It vibrates whenever it passes near hidden treasure or a secret grotto." — Nintendo, The Great Hyrule Encyclopedia, Official Zelda series website.
