5. Magic Rod
Although the Magic Rod first appeared in the first Zelda title on NES, the game where it shines most is Link’s Awakening, allowing Link to shoot deadly fireballs at devastating speed. Reserved for the final dungeon, the dreaded Turtle Rock, the Magic Rod was the most advanced weapon of Link’s arsenal. It was also vastly superior to its later incarnations, the Fire Rod and the Ice Rod. While the latter two consumed Link’s magic meter, the Magic Rod required no such burden.
