The Magma Orb is an item in Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. While vital to the plot, it is never formally obtained by the party.

Spoiler warning: The following section(s) contain plot details that some people may not wish to learn before reaching this point in the game on their own.

The Magma Orb is formed by coalescing magma energy in the belly of a Mountain Roc. It is stated to be the power source for an Alchemy Dynamo hidden deep within Belinsk Ruins.

The Tuaparang commanders Blados and Chalis manipulate Matthew's party into a battle with the Mountain Roc with an additional threat that the Sanan princess Hou Ju would be boiled alive if the Magma Orb was not retrieved. After defeating the Mountain Roc, they find the Magma Orb within the creature's belly. Having learned previously of the dangers of the Alchemy Dynamo, the Adepts attempt to leave it behind. However, Ryu Kou, Hou Ju's brother, was traveling with the Adepts and took the Magma Orb for himself. Eventually, Ryu Kou would be manipulated into using the Magma Orb to activate the Alchemy Dynamo, causing the Grave Eclipse.
