The Stone of Agony, or Shard of Agony in Ocarina of Time 3D, is an item in Ocarina of Time. It is a companion relic to the Lens of Truth.[1]


Location and Uses

The Stone 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. Once obtained, the Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak will vibrate when close to a Secret Grotto. The Stone of Agony is also present in the Wii Virtual Console release of Ocarina of Time. However, since the Wii Classic Controller does not support rumble functionality, the item serves no purpose whatsoever. In Master Quest, the Stone of Agony will also cause the controller to rumble when close to a hidden Treasure Chest while in the Spirit Temple.[verification needed]

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, this feature is absent entirely. However, the Mask of Truth can be worn to visually reveal the location of Secret Grottoes.

Shard of Agony

In Ocarina of Time 3D, the Stone of Agony is replaced by the Shard of Agony. Due to the lack of a rumble feature on the Nintendo 3DS console, the Shard of Agony instead releases an audible pinging accompanied by a flashing icon of the item itself in the top-left corner of the screen.[2]



  1. "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,
  2. "The Shard of Agony will serve the same function as the Stone of Agony, but will use visual and audio cues to guide players to the game’s hidden secrets. When a player is close to a secret, a small pinging sound will be emitted from the console, and a small icon of the Shard of Agony will flash in the top-left corner of the screen." — Pani, Ocarina of Time 3D Introduces the Shard of Agony, Zelda Universe, published May 19, 2011, retrieved May 19, 2011.
