Magic Rod

The Fire Rod is a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series. When Link waves the Fire Rod, it shoots out a blast of fire, which can ignite objects and enemies and also light torches. It functions similarly to the Magic Rod.


The Legend of Zelda series[edit]

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past[edit]

In The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Link obtains the Fire Rod in the Skull Woods. Each time Link uses the Fire Rod, it uses energy from the magic meter. The Fire Rod is required during the battle against Trinexx.

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures[edit]

In The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures, Fire Rods are located on certain Item Podiums throughout the game. While the Fire Rod is equipped, the player can press A Button to make the four Links shoot a blast of fire. Holding the button allows the Fire Rod to release a large stream of fire. If the Fire Rod is upgraded to level 2, it functions like the Cane of Somaria; the Links can use it to create a yellow block and again for the block to explode, releasing fire in all four cardinal directions.

Hyrule Warriors[edit]

In Hyrule Warriors, the Fire Rod is the most basic type of Magic Rod that can be obtained. Like the other rods, it is capable of blasting fire and summoning pillars of flames to attack enemies, although it has low defense. In the Hyrule Warriors Legends A Link Between Worlds Pack, the Fire Rod is also present as an Item Card on the Lorule Map in Adventure Mode. This is part of the base game in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition.

  • The Fire Rod is a scrapped item from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. It was presumably removed in development, due to the item obtain text, a string saying the Fire Rod is for 350 rupees (suggesting it would have been obtained from a store), and the European version's description mentioning that Ice Wizzrobes are weak to the Fire Rod.[1]
