"Stop the flow of time for an object. Objects stopped in time will store kinetic energy. This stored energy will be expelled when the flow of time resumes. Making good use of the stored energy can move even the largest of objects. Take note of the time needed to recharge it."
— In-game description

The Stasis Rune is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a Rune ability for Link's Sheikah Slate unlocked in Owa Daim Shrine. It can be used to stop time on certain objects, allowing Link to go around them or strike them, increasing their inertia and allowing them to be launched in various directions when the stasis wears off. Link can present three Ancient Cores to Purah to upgrade it. The upgraded version can stop the selected enemy for 5 seconds, but stronger enemies like black/silver variants and bosses will be stopped for 1.5 seconds.

Stasis can be used to play certain mini-games such as Boom Bam Golf or Snowball Bowling.


The word stasis comes from the Greek stasis (στάσις) which means "a standing still".
