Magos are fire-throwing witch enemies in The Adventure of Link.
These orange-cloaked sorcerers protect the Palace on the Sea and appear and disappear in a similar manner to Wizzrobes and Wizards, using their magic to warp around the room, usually in pairs in an attempt to surround Link. They attack by conjuring a flame that travels a short distance in front of them along the floor in hopes of striking Link. Unlike Wizards, they can be defeated using Link's sword. However, they can take quite a few hits before they fall, and their teleportation and flames that block Link's path makes them very bothersome to fight.
- Magos are the first witches to appear in The Legend of Zelda series.
The name Mago is likely derived from 魔法 (Mahō), a Japanese word meaning magic, witchcraft and sorcery. Mago is also Portuguese, Spanish and Italian for wizard.
