The Magical Key is an item in The Legend of Zelda and The Adventure of Link. It allows Link to unlock any Locked Door.[1] Unlike a normal Key, it is reusable, meaning that regular Keys are rendered useless once obtained.

The Adventure of Link


In The Adventure of Link, the Magical Key is found after using the Spell at the edge of Hidden Kasuto.[4] It is also gold-colored, but the lead shape resembles a coat of arms.
