This is the first sword Link obtains in Skyward Sword. Given to him by Eagus, the young hero must use it to complete the training exercises at the Knight Academy's Sparring Hall.

The goddess Hylia created the Goddess Sword and Fi, an intelligent humanoid spirit who resides in the sword, and gave it the purpose of assisting Hylia's chosen hero. She then enshrined the sword inside the Statue of the Goddess before raising it into The Sky as part of Skyloft.

Din's Flame converts it to the Master Sword, with four times the original Goddess Sword's attacking power and a faster charge time for Skyward Strikes.

True Master Sword

The final change to the sword takes place in the past, before Zelda enters into a deep sleep to keep the seal placed upon Demise intact. Her blessing converts it to the True Master Sword, with the familiar Master Sword appearance seen throughout the series: the cross-guard's position extends outward, and the gem and the Triforce symbol are restored. With this final transformation, the sword becomes able to harm and defeat Demise. On Hero Mode, the True Master Sword can activate Skyward Strikes instantaneously.
