The Magic Rod is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. It has the ability to conjure an endless number of fireballs, which can be shot at enemies and targets from a distance. These fireballs are incredibly powerful, causing twice as much damage as the Ultimate Sword against most enemies. It is also one of the only items in the Legend of Zelda series able to to kill Cuccos and Dogs. The Magic Rod can be found in the eighth dungeon, Turtle Rock, where it is used to melt blocks of ice and defeat Hot Head.
