I think that the magical rod from the original zelda should be added to the game as an additional pickup for link. The wave it shoots would not pass through walls, but burst into flame on contact with anything. The flame could hurt both link and enemies unless he obtains the red ring (no, not the red ring of death), consequentially giving it another use. The addition of such a great weapon from zelda is simply a necessary addition as I feel link is currenly too weak to defeat bowser via combat (ie not getting the axe). I would really like to see this added in the next update/patch, and thank you for considering this idea and taking the time to read this post.
