  • After charging, if the Stonehead runs into an obstacle or wall, it will fall down and stop attacking for a couple seconds. While no effect is given to the Stonehead, it is possible to hide behind a small tree and cause them to knock themselves out over and over again.


  • There are strong similarities between the Stonehead and the Pachycephalosaurus, a thick-skulled dinosaur thought to have engaged in head-butting.
