Tao Stones are coin-like stones with the Tao Symbols embedded on them.

Freedom Planet

Tao Stones serve as Bonus Tokens, and are hidden in almost every Stage. In Adventure and Classic Modes, if the Player finds a Tao Stone before completing a Stage, they'll be able to visit the Bonus Stage afterwards.

Location Hints

This is a list of hints to the locations of every Tao Stone in Freedom Planet.

NOTE: For those who haven't played Freedom Planet yet, this page contains SPOILERS, so if you can't find the Tao Stones but want to find them on your own, then don't look at this page.

Freedom Planet 2

Tao Stones makes cameo appearance in Freedom Planet 2, in a new element called "Speed Gates", which are rainbow colored rings (similar to the Time Gates seen in Pangu Lagoon). Passing through one one of these rings will start a timer where the Player can get Bonus Crystal Shards by leaving as many Tao marks on the trail as possible. When the Bonus Timer runs out, all of the Tao Marks on the trail will transform into Crystal Shards. The longer the trail is, the more Bonus Crystal Shards the Player will earn.
