In A Link to the Past, Magic Powder can be obtained from Syrup after giving her the Magic Mushroom, which can be found in the Lost Woods. Once Link gives her the mushroom, he must leave the area and return. Then, Maple will give him the Magic Powder inside the Magic Shop.

Magic Powder can dissolve bushes, turn Buzz Blobs into Cukemen, and turn Bubbles and Rabbit Beams into Fairies. It can also be used on various enemies, turning them into a Slime. Magic Powder can also be used to awaken the Mad Batter inside a well near the Dwarven Swordsmiths' shop. When sprinkled on the altar, it summons the Mad Batter, who rants at Link before doubling his Magic Meter.

Link's Awakening

  1. "Cluck cluck... What?! You turned me into a human. I can even speak! Aha, it must be you who is always teasing my friends. The Weathercock is always watching you harass them." — Cucco (A Link to the Past)
  2. "The sweeping lady in Kakariko Village was not the person she seemed. When Link tossed some Magic Powder on her, she turned into a Faerie! In fact, each time Link came out of the house, the sweeping woman returned and could be turned into a Faerie once again." (A Link to the Past Player's Guide (Nintendo of America), pg. 131)
  3. "Ahhh... Yess... That dust was so refreshing... For that, I'll tell you a hint! Use a Bomb in a place where the sand swallows you... There is a treat on the other side of the wall... Bye!" — TBD (Link's Awakening DX)
