The Deku Leaf is an item that appears in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It is a magical leaf that Link can use as either a paraglider or a large fan. Link can obtain it from the Great Deku Tree in the Forest Haven, although only if he uses Baba Buds to make his way to the top.

In order to glide using the Deku Leaf, Link must jump off a ledge. Whenever Link uses the Deku Leaf, the Magic Meter drains gradually, and the Deku Leaf cannot be used if it is empty. If the Magic Meter runs out while Link is using the Deku Leaf, it wilts. If this occurs in midair, Link falls straight down, usually in a pitfall. The Deku Leaf blows in the direction of the wind, and because of this, there are a couple of instances where Link must play the the Wind's Requiem to change the wind's direction so that the Deku Leaf can lead him to certain areas.

If Link uses the Deku Leaf as a fan, it creates a large gust of wind that can either blow away piles of leaves (such as those in the Forbidden Woods) or stun enemies. If Link uses a Deku Leaf while the Magic Meter is empty, only its stem is shown, and the Deku Leaf cannot create any gust of air.

The Deku Leaf is featured in a microgame in WarioWare: Smooth Moves titled The Wind Waker. The objective is to direct Link to safely land on a platform between the Forest Haven and the Forbidden Woods using the Deku Leaf. In higher difficulty levels, Link has to travel a farther distance. The microgame returns in WarioWare Gold, in which the higher difficulty levels instead have a smaller landing spot.
