Magic is a force present throughout the The Legend of Zelda series. Magic allows its users, also called wizards or sorcerers,[according to whom?] to perform spells capable of many different things, be they benevolent or malevolent. Certain objects are enhanced by magic or otherwise magical.[1] The properties, origins and general understandings of magic remain uncertain. It is known that the higher entities that preside over magic in the Hyrulean realm are the Golden Goddesses.[citation needed]

Forms and Uses

The Legend of Zelda

Magic in The Legend of Zelda can be directly used by Link through the usage of the Magical Rod which allows him to shoot out beams similar to those shot by Wizzrobes. With the addition of the Book of Magic these beams can be enhanced to leave flames in their wake.[2] Unlike later games, the usage of magic isn't regulated by a metre or stamina. Multiple other items, namely the Magical Sword, Magical Shield, Magical Boomerang and Magical Key, are implied to be bespelled in some manner.

The Adventure of Link

Main article: Magic in the Adventure of Link

Magic was first featured prominently in The Adventure of Link.

Known magic-users

Known characters that have performed magic on-screen include:


Hylians are capable of performing magic due to their "magic-infused blood." Indeed, Hylians are proven to be one of the most powerful magical societies in Hyrule.[citation needed]


Gerudo are shown to be capable of wielding magic.


The Twili are said to master a powerful shadow magic.[according to whom?]


The Sages are a powerful order of wizards that protect Hyrule against evil. Their magic is related to one of the six elements (fire, water, forest, shadow, spirit and light).[citation needed] Sages come from many races, which may or not be able to wield magic. If they come from a magic-wielding society, Sages are given powers superior to those of their brethren. If they do not come from a magic society, they are given magic powers.[citation needed]
