In The Legend of Zelda, Link can acquire the Magical Boomerang as a replacement of the Boomerang. The Magical Boomerang is blue and can be thrown further than the Boomerang. To obtain it in the First Quest, he must defeat all of the blue Goriyas within a certain room in Level 2. In the Second Quest, he must defeat all of the red Goriyas within a room in Level 3. Like the Boomerang, Link can use the Magical Boomerang to stun certain enemies for a brief period of time. He can also use it to instantly to defeat Keese and Gels. Once Link obtains the Magical Boomerang, the appearance of the Boomerangs that Goriyas use will change to match it. If Link obtains the Boomerang after the Magical Boomerang, nothing will change and he will continue to have the Magical Boomerang in his inventory.
A Link to the Past
A Magical Boomerang can be obtained in A Link to the Past by either upgrading the Boomerang at the Waterfall of Wishing or in the Village of Outcasts. The Magical Boomerang is red, faster than the Boomerang and can be thrown farther. To obtain it, Link can toss his Boomerang into the Mysterious Pond, when a Great Fairy will emerge from the Pond and ask him if he dropped the Boomerang. If Link says yes, then she will reward him with a Magical Boomerang for being honest. Link can also get a Magical Boomerang from a Treasure Chest in the Village of Outcasts if he has not yet obtained a Boomerang.
Oracle of Seasons
The Magical Boomerang can be obtained as an upgrade to the Boomerang in Oracle of Seasons. It is the main item of the sixth Dungeon, the Ancient Ruins. It is blue and much larger than the Boomerang. Link can control the Magical Boomerang's flight path.
The Minish Cap
In The Minish Cap, the Magical Boomerang can be obtained by Fusing Kinstones with the Tingle Siblings?, which will reveal a hidden Treasure Chest underground. The Magical Boomerang has a longer range, can change direction mid-flight, and will defeat enemies that the regular Boomerang only stuns.
