Important Swords

Don't you think that the Magical Sword, Biggoron's Sword, and Phantom Sword should be in the Important swords section?They don't seem too minor, considering that not only are they the most powerful swords in the game, but they just dn't fir in with the other minor swords.

I think they should, especially the Biggoron's Sword. User:Steven/sig 17:32, 16 August 2008 (EST)

For deciding the sorting of swords. I only put swords that were in three or more games under major swords. I considered making a heading for the most powerful swords in each game, but too many of them don't have their own page. But I don't see any reason why we couldn't make these pages.User:Matt/sig 21:54, August 16, 2008 (UTC)
The point is major. Not number of games. I'm pretty sure Phantom Sword is major because without it, the game can't be beat. If the Phantom Sword is minor, the end of Phantom Hourglass is minor. Minor =/= End of PH therefore Minor =/= Phantom Sword. Seablue 21:58, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

I'll try to change that then. But those weren't the definitions I was going for. Under that, the Magical Sword stays minor, and so does the Biggoron's Sword.User:Matt/sig 22:01, August 16, 2008 (UTC)

SO the top of the line Biggoron and Magical Sword stay minor, while the not that important Four Sword stay as Major Swords :| Seablue 22:05, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

The Four Sword is the main sword of three games and is a major plot element in each one. Those games are just not possible without it. That makes it a major sword. It is far more important than the Biggoron's Sword is. Remember that the Master Sword is the major sword of four games, or three considering that it can be upgraded in A Link to the Past, or five/six if you count the oracles.User:Matt/sig 22:37, August 16, 2008 (UTC)

Yes, but the Biggoron and Magical are the OUTRIGHT STRONGEST of their respective games. I believe they're pretty major. Seablue 22:39, 16 August 2008 (UTC)
But they're also optional. They're not integral to any game's plot. They're not necessary to obtain. I personally believe that they shouldn't be counted as "major" swords, as they appear in one game each, and that's even only if the player decides to obtain it in the first place.
I like the idea of this template, though, Matt. Good idea. User:Ando/sig 01:16, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

I'll let the Biggoron's Sword stay in major sword. The final fight with Ganon is a lot hard if you have to use the hammer instead of the Biggoron's Sword. Besides, the template looks balanced now.User:Matt/sig 01:19, August 17, 2008 (UTC)

Hyrule Warriors, Ancient Stone Tablets, "Other" Tab

So, I want to propose a small change to this template: As a way of modifying it to add Ancient Stone Tablets and Hyrule Warriors pages. Over here. This way the template could link to these other two games, as well as have room for possible future spin-offs' swords. (Of course, Hyrule Warriors page is "Weapons" not swords, because of the multitude of player characters, though I feel it still fits under the confines of the template.)

Additionally, I would personally prefer to see individual pages for some of the generic or unnamed swords, which currently redirect to the "Swords in" pages, but I can probably live without that. -- Zero-ELEC (talk) 19:34, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

I guess we could have a tab for ambig/non-canon stuff, but let's see what the others have to say. The problem with some generic swords is that they usually don't get a name in-game, so there's no actual name for the page either. Also, they should at least be relevant enough, as there's no point in making a page with only one line of text. - Chuck * (Talk) 05:58, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

What is that one?KrytenKoro (talk) 21:46, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
