|The Magic Bees are never seen in the book|
The Magic Bees can either prove to be helpful creatures or deadly foes, depending on the actions that Princess Zelda takes throughout the book. If Zelda visits the beekeeper without bringing him the Fairy Flower Sap, he will become angry and release a swarm of angry Magic Bees at her, which will sting her and send her into the woods where she will eventually fall in a pit and break her ankle. However, by bringing the Fairy Flower Sap to Conly, he will lend her the Magic Honey. However, since Zelda needs to arrive to the Midoro Palace before sunrise, she also asks Conly that he let her borrow the Magic Bees so that they may take her to the palace, to which the beekeeper agrees.
After retrieving the honey, thousands of Magic Bees will cover Zelda's body and begin to lift her off the floor. The Magic Bees will then fly out the door and into the sky, arriving to the Midoro Palace just before the sunrise. After safely landy, Zelda thanks the bees and returns to the room where Link is imprisoned.
- "'No,' he says. 'But just out of town there's a strange newcomer--a beekeeper.' [...] 'Name of Conly,' Aldo replies. 'Very strange. He lives just out of town, back along the road a bit. Folks say his bees are magic. But he won't let anyone taste their honey.'" (The Crystal Trap (Archway), pg. 56)
- "The little man eyes the flask hungrily. 'What do yer want?' he asks. 'Honey? Take whatever you need.' And he waves to a row of honey pots along one wall." (The Crystal Trap (Archway), pg. 56)
- "'That's not all,' Zelda says, holding firmly onto the flask. 'I need to borrow your bees.' 'My bees?' Conly says. 'What for?' To take me to Midoro Palace. I must be there by morning,' Zelda answers." (The Crystal Trap (Archway), pg. 71)
- "As she does, she sees that the blue and gold sparks are really bees. They land on her, one at a time, till her whole body is covered with thousands of buzzing insects. Suddenly, the buzzing gets louder and Zelda is lifted gently off the floor. The magic bees are carrying her! They fly out the door and up into the sky. Through the moonlit night they soar, heading for Midoro Palace." (The Crystal Trap (Archway), pg. 49)
- "They arrive just as rays from the rising sun strike the tall columns of the palace. The white stone glows softly. [...] The bees swarm up into the air and head back toward Ruto. 'Thank you,' Zelda calls." (The Crystal Trap (Archway), pg. 49)
