White Sword

From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The White Sword is a recurring Sword in The Legend of Zelda series, appearing in The Legend of Zelda and The Minish Cap. Despite both Swords sharing the same name, the nature of the White Sword in The Minish Cap makes it impossible that it is the same White Sword in The Legend of Zelda.



The Legend of Zelda


In The Legend of Zelda, the White Sword is the second sword available to Link, following the Wooden Sword and preceding the Magical Sword. It can be obtained once Link has five hearts in his heart meter. The young hero can wield this sword by speaking to the Old Man in a cave in the northeast of Hyrule near a waterfall, which is guarded by a Lynel.

The Minish Cap


In The Minish Cap, the White Sword is the reforged Picori Blade and replaces Link's first sword, Smith's Sword. The White Sword grows in power as it is infused with the power of the four Elements. All four elements transform it into the Four Sword.

Each time Link infuses the White Sword with Elements, the hilt of the sword will change colors, and Link will be able to make more copies of himself when he charges a Spin Attack over special tiles, with the maximum copies being four.
