The Cane of Somaria is an item from A Link to the Past and Oracle of Ages. Its uses in both games are similar.

A Link to the Past

"Cane of Somaria
What a strange and wonderful item! It is said that canes or staffs such as the Cane of Somaria were once used by powerful wizards. Each cane had an individual power which no other cane could share. Some canes had constructive power, while others had destructive powers. It just so happens that the Cane of Somaria has both! With it, Link can lay down a block and then push that block wherever he wants it to go. The same block can also act as a weapon if Link positions it correctly. The Cane will use some Magic power, but not a great deal.

"Link will need to use the Cane of Somaria to cross some dangerous chasms."

"Drop an orange block to the floor by pressing the Y Button once. Now position the block appropriately."

"Pressing the Y Button after dropping a block will cause it to break and shoot out in four directions. "

The Cane of Somaria is found in the sixth dungeon in A Link to the Past, Misery Mire. Its block creating ability also comes in handy in Turtle Rock, where it will prompt certain question mark platforms to move. If Link waves the cane while a block is already in place, said block will burst into flames.

NB: Do not exit from the Skull Woods entrance where the Somaria block can be placed on the floor switch. This will cause the game to freeze due to a bug.

Oracle of Ages

It is primarily used to detect pits Link may fall through or block enemies from progressing. The blocks created by the Cane of Somaria can be destroyed with a slash of the Sword. These blocks will harm certain enemies which come in contact. The block ability of the Cane of Somaria comes in handy when stepping stones are needed during the side-scrolling portions.

Non-Canon Appearances

This section describes a subject that is or may be outside the core Zelda canon.

Cadence of Hyrule

The Cane of Somaria is an optional permanent item in Cadence of Hyrule. It can summon tall blocks that can be used to climb up or thrown at enemies. Summoning these blocks uses stamina, and summoning another block will erase the existing one. The blocks are too tall to be the first step, so the player must use an elevated platform or a Stone Block to climb onto them.
