ALBW Forgotten Sword Icon.png

After the Captain forgets his Sword at the Blacksmith's Forge, Link is tasked with finding him and returning the Sword. This takes Link to the Sanctuary, where he witnesses the Captain locked inside. With help from Dampé, Link takes the Secret Passage under the Graveyard so he can make it into the Sanctuary. Once inside, Link finds out that Yuga has transformed the Captain into a Painting, allowing him to keep the Sword.

The Forgotten Sword does half a Heart of damage. It can also be used to cut and break objects such as grass, pots, and signs.
