After Link sprinkles Magic Powder on the raccoon in the Mysterious Woods, he finally has access to a hidden chest on the next screen. The chest contains the Tail Key, which opens the first dungeon, Tail Cave.


The Moldorm boss of the Tail Cave featured in Link's Awakening is known as Degu Tail in Japanese, which explains the name of this item.
