Rune Stones, often referred to as Runes or Rune Keys are collectable items that appear in MediEvil and MediEvil: Resurrection.

Description and usage

It is said that they were made by the ancients, who captured the magical energy emanating from Gallowmere and trapped it within the stones.[1] Runes are used to unlock doorways and gates that have a lock in the style of a begging hand. These hands will only accept Rune Stones of the same colour as themselves.


A star rune placed in a hand lock.
