|Effect||Lights up dark areas.|
The torch is an item that can be purchased in stores, and there is one free torch in a chest in the King's chamber at the start of the game.
It can be used in dungeons to light them up. It only lights up the adjacent tile to the player but its light lasts indefinitely until the player exits the dungeon. Torches are not really needed after learning Glow, although it is worth noting that the Glow spell eventually fades and needs to be recast.

|Torch||8||Lights up the radius around the hero when in darkness.|
The torch is a plot item that lights up a dark floor in Uptaten Towers.
Though torches are not used in the game as items, one is needed during a puzzle in the Shrine of Mysteries to light 9 braziers up with the right combination of red and blue flames. This puzzle, though, is only present in the Sony PlayStation Version.
Though torches are not used in the game as items, they are shown to be held by the characters while in a cavern during gameplay or cutscenes.
