The Water Rod is an item in Tri Force Heroes.[1]

Locations and Uses

The Water Rod allows the Link to create pillars of water that can be used as platforms, regardless of whether or not water is present. A water pillar equates to the same height as a full Totem, and spouts for a short time before disappearing. These pillars can stun most enemies and eject aquatic enemies, such as Octoroks and Skullfish, out of the water. The item is also used to traverse expanses of water that cannot be crossed by swimming, and to reach heights that are too high for a normal Totem, or alternately, to climb to higher platforms by elevating all three Link at once instead of leaving one behind to throw the other two. In the Abyss of Agony, the Water Rod's pillars can be used to turn water wheels in the Level's third Stage.

Water Rods are introduced in Secret Fortress, in which all three Link acquire one. The item reappears in Abyss of Agony (two Rods), Water Temple, Infinity Dunes, Dragon Citadel, and Sky Temple (one Rod per Stage). The Water Rod also appears in the Flooded Zone, Desert Zone and Baneful Zone of the Den of Trials, as well as the Coliseum's Riverside and The Ruins arenas.

The effects of the Water Rod are improved while wearing the Torrent Robe. This greatly expands the radius of the Water Rod's pillars.
