Not to be confused with Lightning.

The Thunder magic is an ability in The Adventure of Link.[1]


The Thunder magic is used to cause Thunderbird's face to appear, which is its weak spot. The Thunder magic is also a very powerful ability in general, as it destroys all non-boss monsters on the screen.[2] The only drawback is that it is an extremely expensive magic to cast.[3] Link learns this magic from the old man in the Old Town of Kasuto only after the young hero has increased his Magic Meter to the highest possible level by finding the four hidden magic containers.
