Swords of Twilight Princess
From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
- Main article: Wooden Sword
Link receives his default blade from Rusl as a present (although the in-game description suggests that Rusl was simply repairing it). Link keeps this sword until after he rescues Talo. He eventually gives the sword to Talo so he and Colin can get past them to where Ilia is holding Epona. Later on, after Talo and the rest of the Ordon children are captured by King Bulblin and his Bulblins, Wolf Link finds the Wooden Sword shattered on the ground. However, with the extraordinary senses of a wolf, Link is able to detect the children's lingering scent, and track them all the way to Kakariko Village.
After meeting Midna, she tells Link that he must find her a suitable sword and a shield. Link finds the shield in one house, and finds the Ordon Sword in Rusl's house while he is out looking around for monsters and signs of children despite his injuries. Of course, he cannot use the sword in wolf form, so Midna holds onto them for him. The sword and shield are automatically equipped when Link returns to his human form. If Link talks to Uli (Rusl's wife) after he returns to human form, she will say that the "monsters" stole the sword and that Link got it back from them, not knowing that he took it while in wolf form. Link can equip this sword anytime he wishes, even after he has acquired the Master Sword. This sword appears in Link's vision of the Dark Interlopers, in which he stabs and kills a possessed Ilia and then throws it to the ground next to the dagger Ilia had tried to stab Link with.
Rusl uses a sword similar to the Ordon Sword as his weapon in the beginning of the game, and when he meets up again with Link as part of the Resistance.
- Main article: Master Sword
Located deep within the Faron Woods in the Sacred Grove. The Blade of Evil's Bane is said to have once be held by the Legendary Hero of Time. It is the one relic that allowed Link to break the curse that Zant placed on him. The Master Sword allows Link access to other numerous hidden temples later in the game, including the Temple of Time. During his exploration on the Palace of Twilight, Link finds a way to enhance the sword with light, which can repel dark fog, deliver light to some sacred orbs, and fell beings of Twilight with a single blow.
