The Noble Sword, also known as the Hero's Sword, is a recurring Sword in The Legend of Zelda series. It is more powerful than the Wooden Sword, but less powerful than both Biggoron's Sword and the Master Sword, and can also shoot Sword Beams when Link is at full health. The Noble Sword can either be acquired by completing the Trading Quest, or via a secret password in a Linked Game.
Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, the Noble Sword is also earned by completing the Trading Quest. If Link plays the Phonograph for the Business Scrub in the Lost Woods, he will give Link instructions on how to find the Noble Sword in the Lost Woods. Once found, the Noble Sword will be resting in a pedestal.
Like in Oracle of Ages, the Noble Sword can also be obtained via secret passwords in a Linked Game. This can be done by either telling the secret told by Old Lady near Horon Village in Labrynna to the Old Man basement of the Clock Shop; or by telling the Hero's Cave Zora's secret to King Zora in Labrynna, then using the Hall of Secrets in Holodrum.
Also like Oracle of Ages, if Link has already obtained the Noble Sword via the secret password, he will receive the Master Sword for completing the Trading Quest, and vice-versa.
Oracle of Ages
In Oracle of Ages, the Noble Sword is obtained by completing the Trading Quest. To obtain it, Link must take the Broken Sword he received from the Old Zora to Patch atop the Restoration Wall. If Link helps Patch with his ceremony, he will repair the Broken Sword and return it to Link as the Noble Sword.
If Link has not already obtained it, the Noble Sword can also be obtained in a Linked Game by way of a secret password. This is done by telling King Zora the secret password heard from the Zora in the Hero's Cave in Holodrum. Alternatively, Link can tell the secret he heard from the Old Lady near Horon Village to the Old Man in the basement of the Clock Shop in Holodrum, then transfer the Noble Sword to Labrynna via the Hall of Secrets.
If Link has already obtained the Noble Sword through the Trading Quest, he will receive the Master Sword upon telling the secret. Alternatively, if Link has already earned the Noble Sword via the secret password, when he brings the Broken Sword to Patch, he will receive the Master Sword instead.
