The Ghost Lantern is an item in Twilight Princess HD.[1]

Location and Uses

The Ghost Lantern is received from Jovani after obtaining 20 Poe Souls.[2] When equipped, it lights up if an Imp Poe is in the area highlighted in the map or within a Cave that can be entered in that area.[3] In dungeons, it lights up if there are Imp Poes anywhere inside. Once all the Imp Poes in the area or dungeon are defeated, the Ghost Lantern goes out. It can also be used during the day, does not require Lantern Oil to work, and cannot be used to light Torches.
