The Magical Boomerang is an upgrade to the classic Zelda item, the Boomerang.
The Legend of Zelda
The Magical Boomerang is an upgrade to the Boomerang in The Legend of Zelda. In the First Quest, it is found in Level 2: The Moon. It is guarded by three Blue Goriyas, all of which must be defeated. The Magical Boomernag travels further than the normal boomerang, making it a much more reliable option in combat. Most enemies are simply stunned when the Boomerang hits them. However, some small enemies, like Keese and Gel, can be damaged using the magical boomerang. In the Second Quest, the Magical Boomerang is found in Level 3: The Manji instead of Level 2.
A Link to the Past
The Boomerang has weak destructive power, but it has the ability to stun most enemies for a short period of time. The Boomerang is the item of choice when walking about Hyrule because you can use it to quickly retrieve items such as Hearts, Rupees, Arrows and Bombs."
