The Candle is an item from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Link finds it in the Parapa Palace, guarded by an orange Iron Knuckle. The candle automatically lights caves and without the candle, the caves are so dark that the enemies within are invisible, making the longer ones exceptionally difficult to cross. However, some enemies can be "seen" by their appendages crossing the line of the floor. Unlike objects used to light areas in other games, the candle cannot be used as a weapon or tool.
