Putting out fires
Location and Uses
The Gale Boomerang is first seen in the possession of Ook, the leader of the Monkeys living in the Forest Temple. As Ook has succumbed to the influence of a mind-controlling parasite, he attacks Link, forcing the hero to battle him. After defeating the parasite, Ook regains consciousness and flees, leaving behind the Gale Boomerang, which then comes to life and introduces itself as the Fairy of Winds. The Fairy of Winds asks Link to take the Gale Boomerang with him, with the hope of aiding him in his quest.
The Gale Boomerang causes a small cyclone to follow it wherever it is thrown, allowing Link to transport objects from one area to another with it as well as solve puzzles with fan-based switches, and extinguish Torches. Enemies hit by the Gale Boomerang will be temporarily stunned. The Gale Boomerang works similarly to the Boomerang in The Wind Waker, giving Link the option to lock onto up to five targets. Throughout Hyrule Field, the Gale Boomerang can be used to catch Golden Bugs and bring them close to Link. It is necessary during the transportation of Ralis to Kakariko Village, as rogue Bulblins attempt to set the wagon carrying him aflame.
