The Flame Lantern is an item in The Minish Cap.[1]

Location and Uses

The Flame Lantern is found in the Temple of Droplets after Link defeats the Big Blue Chuchu. The Flame Lantern is activated by pressing the button it's assigned to. When activated, it lights up a moderate area around Link, allowing him to see in pitch-black rooms. If the Flame Lantern makes contact with small or medium-sized blocks of ice, it will cause them to melt. Similarly, Fire from the Flame Lantern will burn away webs. The Flame Lantern can also be used to transfer Fire to Torches. When used on Gibdos, it will burn their bandages and turn them into Stalfos. All types of Wizzrobe will instantly die upon contact with the flames from the Flame Lantern. The Flame Lantern will immediately deactivate if Link falls into a body of water.

The Flame Lantern is essential in the battle against the Temple of Droplet's boss, the Big Octorok, whose flower-tipped tail is susceptible to Fire.
