The Shield magic is an extremely useful ability that increases Link's defensive abilities (similar to the Red Ring), reducing the damage he takes by half. Link's tunic turns red to show that it is in effect, and it wears off as soon as Link leaves a room and the scene changes. It is the first magic Link should obtain, and can be found in an Old Man's house in the town of Rauru.

magic recovers some of Link's life energy, and it is one of the magic that uses the most Magic Points. It is probably the most useful magic in the game, as aside from finding rare Fairies or leveling up, it is the only way for Link to recover health when away from towns. By finding a Mirror
under a table in a house in the Water Town of Saria
, Link can then take it to the woman who lost said mirror. In return, the woman allows him into her house to meet the Old Man who teaches him this magic. While the Life magic only recovers approximately three squares of life energy, it will surely save Link's life many times.
magic is a unique ability that temporarily turns Link into a Fairy
. While Link can't attack enemies in his fairy form and leaves him defenseless to enemy attacks, he'll have some great advantages in it. The ability to fly will help Link get into high places and cross dangerous pits of water or lava,
and the small size of a fairy will enable him to get through small holes. When he activates the magic in a palace, he can fly through the keyholes of locked doors.
In order to obtain this magic, Link must find the Water of Life in a swamp cave to the west of Midoro Palace and bring it to an Old Woman in the Harbor Town of Mido. It is required to enter the Island Palace.

magic is one of the most important magical abilities in the game. It is the only way to cause Thunderbird
's face to appear, which is its weak spot. The Thunder magic is also a very powerful ability in general, as it destroys all non-boss monsters on the screen.
The only drawback is that it is an extremely expensive magic to cast.
