Magic Meters,(TAoL | ALttP | OoT | MM | TWW)[1] also known as the Magic Gauge,(HW)[2] are recurring elements in The Legend of Zelda series.[name reference missing]

Overview

The Adventure of Link



In The Adventure of Link, the Magic Meter appears as a white bar on the HUD, which decreases when Magic is used. The Magic Meter can be upgrading using Experience or by finding Magic Containers.

A Link to the Past



In A Link to the Past, Link has the Magic Meter in his possession from the start of his adventure; no Item is needed to be found to acquire the Magic Meter. The Magic Meter can be replenished by picking up Magical Decanters found by cutting Grass, destroying Jars, or defeating Enemies. An upgrade for the Magic Meter can be obtained after sprinkling the Mad Batter with Magic Powder on the shrine next to the Dwarven Swordsmiths' house. Items that deplete the Magic Meter include the Magic Powder, the Bombos Medallion, the Quake Medallion, the Ether Medallion, the Fire Rod, the Ice Rod, the Cane of Somaria, the Cane of Byrna, and the Magic Cape.

Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, the Magic Meter is given to Link along with the Spin Attack by the Great Fairy of Power near the entrance to the Death Mountain Crater.[3] Using the Spin Attack will drain part of the Magic Meter.[4] The Magic Meter can be replenished by picking up Magic Jars found by cutting Grass, destroying Jars, or defeating Enemies. The Magic Meter starts with a base of 48 Magic Power. An upgrade for the Magic Meter can be obtained from the Great Fairy of Wisdom in the Death Mountain Crater.[5][1] The upgraded Magic Meter brings the total Magic Power from 48 to 96. Items that drain the Magic Meter include the Lens of Truth, Farore's Wind, Nayru's Love, Din's Fire, Fire Arrows, Ice Arrows, and Light Arrows.

Majora's Mask



In Majora's Mask, the Magic Meter is given to Deku Link after returning the orange Stray Fairy to the Fairy Fountain in Clock Town.[6] The base Magic Power of the Magic Meter starts at 48. An upgrade for the Magic Meter can be obtained after returning all Stray Fairies in the Snowhead Temple to their respective Fairy's Fountain and after returning all Stray Fairies in the Woodfall Temple to their respective Fairy's Fountain, which doubles the Magic Meter's maximum to 96.

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, Link obtains the Magic Meter along with the Deku Leaf after helping the Great Deku Tree.[7] The Magic Meter can be replenished by picking up Magic Jars found by cutting Grass, destroying Vases, or defeating Enemies. The Magic Meter starts with a base of 16 Magic Power, but this number can be doubled to 36 by a Great Fairy after defeating a Big Octo in the Two-Eye Reef.[8][9] Items that drain the Magic Meter include the Deku Leaf while flying, the Hero's Bow while shooting Fire Arrows or Ice Arrows, the Hurricane Spin, and the Magic Armor.[10][11][12] In The Wind Waker HD, the Magic Armor drains Rupees instead of the Magic Meter.[13]

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, the Magic Meter can only be filled by collecting Magic Jars, or when playing as Young Link and pressing the Strong Attack button to play the "Song of Time."[14] When it is full, Warriors can use the Focus Spirit ability.[15] Focus Spirit increases the Warrior's attack power, speed, and knockback resistance.[16] Different bonuses are granted upon defeating certain number of enemies; reaching those thresholds also refills the Magic Meter slightly.[16] These bonuses last as long as the Warrior is using Focus Spirit. When the Magic Meter runs out, the Warrior automatically performs a powerful attack. Focus Spirit can also be ended prematurely by using a Focus Spirit Attack.[17] The Magic Meter can also be filled by gathering around a Giant Boss with other Warriors and activating Smash Boost Power.[18] While under the effects of Smash Boost Power, the Magic Meter can be filled by attacking nearby enemies.[19] The Magic Meter is also used to use Fairy Magic.[20] The amount of the Magic Meter depleted by Fairy Magic can be changed based on different Fairy Clothing worn by the equipped Companion Fairy.[21]
