- — In-game description
The Ice Rod can be found inside a cave hidden behind a suspicious wall located on Lake Hylia's northern shore. It is not necessary to obtain this item until Turtle Rock in the Dark World, where it must be used to defeat Trinexx. However, obtaining it earlier makes it significantly easier to defeat the Lanmolas of the Desert Palace, as one shot will instantly kill a Lanmola. This is changed in the Game Boy Advance port of the game, in which three hits are required to destroy a Lanmola.
