Fire Rods are recurring Items in the The Legend of Zelda series.(ALttP | FSA | ALBW | BotW | CoH)[1][2][3][4][5]

Location and Uses

A Link to the Past

In A Link to the Past, Link obtains the Fire Rod in the Skull Woods. It can be used as a weapon to burn enemies or light unreachable Torches. The Fire Rod drains magic from the Magic Meter when used. It is especially effective against Gibdos, whose bandages can be burned away to reveal Stalfos.

Four Swords Adventures

Fire Rod
Shoot fireballs or light braziers. Hold down the A Button to shoot a continuous cascade of flames.
Lev. 2
The level 2 Fire Rod can create blocks. If you wave the rod one more time, the block will explode, sending flames in four directions.

In Four Swords Adventures, the Fire Rod can only be found in certain areas. It can be used to defeat enemies and burn grass to reveal hidden items such as Force Gems. This Fire Rod can either shoot fireballs or a continuous cascade of flames.[6] If Link gives the Fire Rod to a Great Fairy to upgrade it, the Fire Rod will act like the Cane of Somaria, creating Somarian Blocks that can be used as platforms. If Link uses the Fire Rod again, the Somarian Block will explode, sending fire in four directions.[7]

Dark Link also uses the Fire Rod in some levels.

A Link Between Worlds

In A Link Between Worlds, the Fire Rod can be rented as the Rented Fire Rod from Ravio for 100 Rupees. Later on, it can be purchased for 1200 Rupees. It drains the Energy Gauge when used. The Fire Rod shoots a pillar of fire that moves in a straight line, which is capable of damaging even airborne enemies. Because it travels forward and most enemies flinch backward, the fire pillar is often capable of hitting the same enemy more than once. The Fire Rod can also be used to melt ice, including ice-based enemies, which can be defeated with one hit of the Rod. It is possible for Link to hurt himself by coming into contact with Fire generated by the Fire Rod.

By finding 10 Maiamais, Link can give the Fire Rod to Mother Maiamai in order to upgrade it to the Nice Fire Rod. This upgraded version produces a much taller and wider pillar of flames, travels a larger distance, and deals more damage.

Breath of the Wild

Hyrule Compendium Entry
233 (238) Fire Rod
Description
A magical rod that can cast fireballs, said to have been crafted by an ancient magician. The rod will break if it strikes something directly, so use it wisely.
Common Locations
Gerudo Highlands
Great Hyrule Forest
Properties
Atk 5

Fire Rods are one-handed Weapons in Breath of the Wild. They are weaker counterparts to Meteor Rods. Fire Rods are not made of flammable materials and can safely be used around open Fire or Scorching Climates. They are also not made of magnetic materials and cannot be manipulated with Magnesis. Fire Rods do not attract Lightning during Thunderstorms or conduct Electricity, and they will float in sufficiently deep bodies of Water.

Fire Rods are imbued with the elemental energy of Fire, generating a ball of Fire that bounces around when swung. However, Fire Rods are fragile and will break easily if they make direct contact with Objects or Enemies. They will also break simply from extended use, or if they directly strike an Object.[2] If Link executes a Spin Attack while wielding a Fire Rod, he will loose five blasts at once in different directions. They also provide one level of Cold Resistance when equipped. When thrown with the R button, Fire Rods will not leave Link's hand, and they instead produce a ball of Fire that will bounce in the direction they are thrown. Fire Rods will temporarily lose their magical properties if used excessively, requiring a brief cooldown period before they can be used again.

During "The Weapon Connoisseur" Side Quest, Nebb will ask Link to show him a Fire Rod, which are uncommon around Hateno Village.[8] If Link brings him a Fire Rod, Nebb will be excited and give him a Purple Rupee as a reward.[9]

Other Appearances

Ancient Stone Tablets



Hyrule Warriors

Main article: Magic Rod

The Fire Rod appears as the first in the Magic Rod class of Weapons.

Cadence of Hyrule

The Fire Rod appears as a weapon in Cadence of Hyrule, capable of launching fireballs at opponents from a distance at the cost of Stamina, sometimes causing them to be burned temporarily. When either Cadence, Link, or Zelda runs out of stamina, the rod can be used to club opponents at close range.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

The Fire Rod is a Rod that can be wielded by all Warriors in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, as well as by Fire Wizzrobes. Located on the left bumper wheel with the Ice Rod, Lightning Rod, and Apples, the Fire Rod is a limited charge attack item that will set aflame anything in its attack radius like Monsters or Bomb Barrels, and can help whittle away at exposed Weak Point Gauges. When used on Ice Elemental Enemy, it causes their Weak Point Gauges to drain away faster, indicated by a cracked effect on the Gauge.

The Fire Rod is first obtained when the Warriors slay their first Fire Wizzrobe in the "The Battle of Hyrule Field" Scenario.

The energy needed to power the Fire Rod can be found by either slaying Fire Elemental Enemy such as Fire Wizzrobes or by smashing open Iron or Wooden Boxes. The Fire Rod needs Fire elemental energy as fuel for its attacks, and the amount of charges it has carries over into future battles. While the Rod innately has three charges, completing the "The Research of Rods" and "It Takes Two" Side Quests both reward the Warriors with one additional charge to all Rods, Fire Rod included.
