Twilight Princess Hidden Skills
There are seven hidden skills that you can learn in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. To learn them, you must find a Howling Stone as a wolf and howl with it. Then, a golden wolf will appear somewhere in Hyrule, waiting for you to come. Once found, it will enter your mind and take the form of a soldier to teach you the skill. Each skill can then be performed in combat by either pressing a combination of buttons or making a certain motion. You can also review your acquired hidden skills in the menu.
