"This is the Magic Cape! You are invisible when you wear it! Watch your Magic Meter!"

— In-Game Description

The Magic Cape is an optional item that appears in A Link to the Past. It can be found in a passageway under the tombstone in the upper right corner of the Hyrulian Cemetery.[1][2] In order to get into the passageway, Link can either use the Titan's Mitt to lift the dark rocks surrounding the grave,[3][4][5] or he can use the Magic Mirror in the Ghostly Garden of the Dark World to avoid the dark rocks by using it in the same area.[6] When he gains access to the tombstone, he can use the Pegasus Shoes to dash into it and force it to slide back, revealing the passageway.[7][8][9][10] At the end of the chamber, Link can find the treasure chest containing the Magic Cape.[11][12]

When worn, Link turns invisible where only his shadow remains as long as he has enough magic left in his Magic Meter.[13][14][15][16][17] Similarly to the Cane of Byrna, enemies cannot do any damage to Link when the Magic Cape is worn.[18][19][20] Unlike the cane, the cape allows him to move through enemies and traps such as Bumpers and without detection from them.[21][22][23] As a result of the Magic Cape draining Link's magic very quickly, he should use it sparingly.

Near Death Mountain in the Dark World, Link can find a sign that explains that whoever wears the Magic Cape will be rewarded with a Piece of Heart.[24][25][26] In the nearby cave, he can follow the paths until he finds that a bumper blocks the end of the cave.[27] As a result of the Magic Cape letting Link pass through traps, he can wear it and walk through it to reach the Piece of Heart.[28][29][30][31][32]
