Found not in a Dungeon, but the depths of Death Mountain, the Hammer gives Link the ability to smash boulders, which not only creates shortcuts and opens new areas in Western Hyrule, but clears forests as well. This function becomes especially useful in uncovering the Hidden Town of Kasuto

The Boots allow Link to walk over certain bodies of water in Eastern Hyrule. They are found in the Maze Island Palace. Once acquired, the boots are used to travel over the sea to the east of Nabooru in order to reach the Palace on the Sea and the third Heart Container

Beyond the secret passage of the Palace on the Sea, Link finds the Flute. This magical instrument can scare away the River Devil that blocks the path south of Nabooru and makes visible the Three-Eye Rock Palace at Three Eye Rock.

Magic Key

Buried underground at the edge of The Hidden Town of Kasuto, the Magic Key allows Link to open any locked door within a palace. It is required to complete the Three-Eye Rock Palace, as no Small Keys are found there.

Fire allows Link to shoot fireballs from his Sword. It is the only way to damage Tektites and Basilisks. Link learns the spell in Nabooru after bringing Water to a Thirsty Lady. Link must possess a minimum of five Magic Containers in order to learn the spell.


Main article: Reflect Spell

Reflect turns Wizards' magic against them. It also allows Link's Shield to block projectiles that it couldn't previously like an Acheman's fireball or a Lizalfos mace. Link is allowed to learn the spell from the Wise Man of the Mountain Town of Darunia after successfully rescuing a Kidnapped Child from Maze Island. Link must possess a minimum of six Magic Containers in order to learn the spell.

Spell turns most enemies into mostly harmless Bots. It also uncovers a secret in the Hidden Town of Kasuto. Link is awarded the spell after finding the Wise Man in Hidden Kasuto inside of his fireplace. Link must possess a minimum of seven Magic Containers in order to learn the spell.


Main article: Thunder Spell

Thunder, the most potent and powerful magic, destroys most enemies instantly. Link must cast Thunder in order to force Thunderbird's weak point appear. Link is taught the final spell by the Wise Man of Kasuto after collecting all eight Magic Containers.


Downward Thrust

Main article: Down Thrust

When Link jumps, pressing down will execute this technique, stabbing anything below, including blocks with the aid of the Handy Glove. Link learns Downward Thrust from a Hylian Knight in the Harbor Town of Mido who resides in the church.

Jump Thrust

Main article: Jump Thrust

When Link is in midair, pressing up causes Link to stab upwards, damaging anything above. This attack will also break blocks just as Downward Thrust does. Link learns Jump Thrust from the Knight in Darunia.


Heart Container

Link begins his quest with four Heart Containers and may double his lifeforce by finding an additional four. Townsfolk throughout Link's quest will offer clues that point him in the right direction to find them.

Magic Container

Main article: Magic Container

Just as with Heart Containers, Link begins with four Magic Containers and can find four more scattered throughout Hyrule. Unlike the Heart Containers, which are not required but make Link's quest more survivable, Magic Containers must be collected or the Wise Men of Eastern Hyrule will refuse to teach spells to Link.

Link Doll

A small number of dolls that resemble Link are scattered throughout Hyrule. When picked up, they give Link an extra life. Once they are collected and the game is saved, they will not respawn.

Each sixth enemy Link defeats drops a Magic Jar. Blue jars replenish one Magic Container while Red Magic Jars completely restore Link's magic power.

Point Bag

Main article: Point Bag

Point Bags provide Link an instant boost to experience in 50, 100, 200, and 500 point increments. Minor enemies randomly drop 50 point bags instead of Blue Magic Jars while more powerful ones drop 200 point bags in lieu of Red Magic Jars. A limited number of Point Bags are also hidden throughout Hyrule.

Small Key

Main article: Small Key

Small Keys are found within Palaces and unlock doors that block Link's path. While Keys can be used in Palaces other than which they are found, doing so makes completing them difficult as unlike in The Legend of Zelda, there is not a surplus of keys.
