Using the Magic Hammer, Link can drive stakes down into the ground. He can use it to pound on other things, too-like enemies! The Magic Hammer can deliver a powerful blow.

"A Powerful Blow
There are plenty of enemies who can be destroyed by using the Magic Hammer. The only drawback to using it is its range of motion. It's very short.

— Nintendo Power Player's Guide

The Magic Hammer is infamous for reappearing, but it always seemed to have a different name. It was trusty and despite its name never actually used any magic.



It is first called the Magic Hammer in A Link to the Past. It is found in the Dark Palace (A Link to the Past) and can be used to help defeat that level's boss, the Helmasaur King. It is useful for killing enemies, flipping them over by pounding it on the floor, or penetrating their shells with direct hits. It also works for whacking down "mole heads" and flattening other various things blocking Link's path, such as certain fence posts. Its main limitation is its short range.
