The Swordsman is a swordsmanship teacher in the Swordsman's School located in West Clock Town. He offers two types of training courses; the Novice Course, which costs one Rupee, and the advanced Expert Course, for 10 Rupees. The Novice Course can tutor Link on using the Sword, and serves as an optional tutorial. The Expert Course takes the form of a mini-game, where Link must chop logs with Jump Attacks to score points. If he earns 30 Points, the Swordsman will give him a Piece of Heart. In Majora's Mask 3D, beating the Expert Course again will earn Link a Fishing Hole Pass, sparking the Swordsman to question if Link has a complaint. [1]

He boasts about his bravery and claims that he does not fear the Moon.[2] His actions, however, would seem to indicate otherwise. If Link goes to the training center after midnight on the night of the Final Day, he will find that he has set up a sign saying he has gone away. If the young hero slashes the wall behind the sign, he will find the Swordsman curled up in the corner saying that he does not want to die.[3]

Reactions to Masks

The Swordsman reacts differently to each of Link's masks. He will not allow the hero to train with one on.




  1. "What? Have you some kind of complaint?" — Swordsman (Majora's Mask 3D)
  2. "Rumors are spreading which suggest the moon is falling, but you can breathe easier as long as I am in town. Tonight, I shall cut the moon into pieces! If one does not have such skill, he cannot teach the way of the sword to others. If you wish to be as powerful as I am, then I shall teach you until nighttime." — Swordsman (Majora's Mask)
  3. "Uuuuurgh... I'm scared! I can't take it! I don't want to die!" — Swordsman (Majora's Mask)
