The Magic Powder is an item that is present in both A Link to the Past and Link's Awakening. It is kept in a bag and has limited uses. It is mainly used to change enemies into something else, such as turning a Buzz Blob to a Cukeman. It can also set things on fire.


A Link to the Past

"Magic Powder
A short time after Link gives the Witch a Magic Mushroom for her Mushroom brew, the Witches Apprentice inside of the Potion Shop will have a bag of Magic Powder read for him.


In A Link to the Past, Link can obtain the Magic Powder by bringing the Mushroom from the Lost Woods to Syrup. She is standing just outside of the Magic Shop. If Link comes back after a while, and enters the shop, he finds a bag of Magic Powder near the Hooded Shopkeeper. It has no quantitative limit, but does run on magic power.

The most useful use of the Magic Powder is that it turns Anti-Fairies into Fairies. This is extremely convenient, especially in the later, and harder, dungeons.

Link's Awakening

In Link's Awakening, the Magic Powder is required to receive the Tail Key. Link must find the Sleepy Toadstool in the Mysterious Forest, and then he can take it to the Witch's Hut in Koholint Prairie. She will mix up the Magic Powder for him. He can use it 20 times before it runs out, and he can pick another toadstool and bring it to the witch to get more. Another option is to win the Magic Powder in the Trendy Game.

Link then must use the powder on Tarin, who has turned into a raccoon and is preventing him from reaching the Tail Key's Treasure Chest. Tarin will return to normal, and Link can then reach the key.
