Location and Uses
The Wind Waker
The Hero's Sword is given to Link by Orca on Outset Island. While Link can train with Orca using the Sword, Orca will not give it to Link until the Helmaroc King drops Tetra over the Fairy Woods. Link temporarily loses it during his first visit at the Forsaken Fortress, accidentally dropping it after being catapulted right into a wall, but he regains it after reaching the top of the Fortress. The Hero's Sword is replaced by the Master Sword once Link obtains it.
After Link embeds the Master Sword into Ganondorf's head and goes back to the world above the sea to sail with Tetra, he is seen wielding the Hero's Sword once again.
