Reviving Stallord

Scimitars of Twilight are recurring objects and items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] The Scimitar of Twilight goes unnamed in Twilight Princess. Despite being classified as a Scimitar, it does not share the definitive characteristics of the real-world weapon.

Location and Uses

Twilight Princess

When Zant confronts Link in Arbiter's Grounds, he stabs the Scimitar into the skull of the fallen beast Stallord, awakening the once-dead creature, and beginning the fourth boss battle. It is unclear if the Scimitar of Twilight has any other powers, as it is not used or seen for the remainder of the game. It is possible that it gave Stallord many of its powers, such as calling upon Staltroops and flying after losing its body. Because the Scimitar is impaled into Stallord's head, it contributes to the heavy amount of damage the beast takes during its Critical Point in the second half of the battle after its spine is destroyed.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

The Scimitars of Twilight appear as Zant's third level Scimitars in Hyrule Warriors. This version of the Weapon is identical to the Scimitar of Twilight Princess, except that it comes in pairs and has blue markings, as opposed to the red markings that appear in the former game.
