100 Rupees (Rent) (ALBW)
1200 Rupees (Purchase) (ALBW)
Location and Uses
A Link to the Past
The Ice Rod is located in the Ice Cave east of Lake Hylia in A Link to the Past Link must use a Bomb to gain access to the cave. When used, the Ice Rod launches freezing ice that can permanently freeze enemies. It can also instantly defeat some enemies, such as Crows. The Ether Medallion has a similar effect.
A Link Between Worlds
The Ice Rod in A Link Between Worlds functions differently from A Link to the Past, though its effect is the same. Instead of launching balls of ice, it drops an ice block in front of Link. It can be rented from Ravio's Shop at any point in the game for 100 Rupees, or purchased for 1200 Rupees; 800 if it is the first item bought. As in A Link to the Past, the Ice Rod is essential to completing Turtle Rock.
Breath of the Wild
Hyrule Compendium Entry
Ice Rods are one-handed Weapons in Breath of the Wild. They are weaker counterparts to Blizzard Rods. Ice Rods are not made of flammable materials and can safely be used around open flames or Scorching Climates. Ice Rods are also not made of magnetic materials and cannot be manipulated with Magnesis. Ice Rods do not conduct electricity, and will float in sufficiently deep bodies of water. Ice Rods are imbued with Ice elemental energy, generating a flurry of Ice when swung. However, Ice Rods are fragile and will break easily if they make direct contact with objects or enemies. Ice Rods will also break simply from extended use. If Link executes a Spin Attack while wielding a Ice Rod, he will loose five blasts at once in different directions. They also provide minor resistance to Heat, though they have no effect in Scorching Climates. When thrown with the R button, Ice Rods will not leave Link's hand and instead produce a flurry of Ice that will advance in the direction they are thrown. Ice Rods will temporarily lose their magical properties if used excessively, requiring a brief cooldown period before they can be used again.
Cadence of Hyrule
The Ice Rod appears as a weapon in Cadence of Hyrule, capable of launching balls of ice at enemies from a distance at the cost of Stamina, sometimes causing them to be frozen temporarily. When either Cadence, Link, or Zelda runs out of stamina, the rod can then be used to club opponents at close range. If the projectile flies above water, it will freeze the water beneath it, allowing the heroes to walk on water temporarily without having to use the Flippers.
