Light Beams,(TWW)[1][2] also known as Sunlight,(OoT | MM)[3][4] are recurring physical manifestations of Light in The Legend of Zelda series.[name references needed] Light Beams go unnamed in A Link to the Past, Majora's Mask 3D, and The Minish Cap.

Location and Uses

A Link to the Past

In A Link to the Past, Link uses a light beam to reveal the true form of the Thieves' Town boss, Blind the Thief.

Ocarina of Time

In Ocarina of Time, light beams are found in the Spirit Temple and behind the Spirit barrier door in Ganon's Castle. Link can use either movable Mirrors or the Mirror Shield to reflect the light onto Sun Patterns.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, light beams are manipulated using the Mirror Shield in various Mirror puzzles and to clear Sun Blocks in the Ancient Castle of Ikana and the Stone Tower Temple.

The Wind Waker

In The Wind Waker, light beams are only found in the Earth Temple and in the grotto within the Angular Isles, shining through holes in the ceiling. Link can use the Mirror Shield to bend the light to multiple Mirrors, while Medli can use her Sacred Harp. This light also cures Link when Jinxed.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, light beams are found in the frozen Temple of Droplets, shining through skylights which can be opened and closed. They are used to melt blocks of ice to free their contents, such as Keys. After beating one of the temple's three mini-bosses, Link will find the Flame Lantern which allows him to melt blocks of ice without sunbeams.

Twilight Princess

In Twilight Princess, light beams are found in the boss room of the Temple of Time. They play a minimal role and are only useful for tracking Armogohma's movements while crawling across the ceiling.

Tears of the Kingdom

Light beams are found in several locations of Tears of the Kingdom, most prominently in the Lightning Temple and areas associated with the Gerudo Desert. They are also found within several Shrines of Light in the desert and the sky. The light can be redirected with large mirrors manipulated by Ultrahand or using the Mirror part.
