The Scimitar of Twilight is a recurring object and item in The Legend of Zelda series. 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
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.
