Torchlights,(MM)[1] also known as Lamps,(LA)[2] and Torches,(OoT)[name reference needed] are recurring Objects in The Legend of Zelda series.

Location and Uses

Torchlights are often found within caves or dungeons. They have a variety of uses from illuminating the surrounding area to being a key aspect in solving a puzzle or unlocking a hidden secret. Because of their nature of being lit or unlit, dungeons and other areas can be designed with the prospect of Link having to take advantage of this-lighting them to cause an event or sequence like unlocking a door or revealing a Treasure Chest.

Outside of being decorative, Torches are primarily used in puzzles. They can be lit by using a fire source such as a burning Deku Stick, a Fire Arrow, the Fire Rod, Din's Fire, or the Lamp. Sometimes they can only be lit by pressing a switch or clearing a room of enemies. In dark areas, Link can light a Torch to light up the room.

Some torches known as Face Lamps can appear as traps shooting fireballs at Link, similar to Medusas. They are usually invulnerable to any form of attack. Additionally, In Phantom Hourglass, some of them can be deactivated by hitting a nearby switch, or defeating all the enemies in the room.

Torches vary across the series from housing a simple group of sticks tied together as well as more elaborately designed metal ones. Twilight Princess has the most variety of Torch designs in the series, with various wooden Torches, stone Torches, and other, more ancient-themed Torches.

The Minish Cap

Torchlights serve as simple decorative objects, sources of light, Switches, and Enemies in The Minish Cap. Some (such as four in Deepwood Shrine and the four hidden in Trees in North Hyrule Field) are directly connected to Floor Switches, which, when stepped on, illuminate the Torchlights and produce some kind of effect. Others (such as those in the Fortress of Winds, the Temple of Droplets, and the Palace of Winds) shoot balls of energy at Link, damaging him. These attacks can be blocked with the Small Shield.
