Cadence of Hyrule

Cadence, Link, and Zelda can use a variety of Weapons in Cadence of Hyrule. Broadswords, Spears, and Flails can be used by any of the three. Daggers are only used by Cadence and Zelda, though Link can use Short Sword, which are functionally identical. In addition, each character except for Yves has at least one special Weapon that only they can use.

Most Weapons can be infused by a Great Fairy in exchange for Diamonds. Glass and legendary Weapons cannot be infused. When a Weapon is infused, it will gain a new attribute.

Glass Weapons boast 3 points of damage, but will shatter and disappear if the owner takes damage while wielding them. Legendary Weapons have powerful properties such as multiple infusion effects, different special moves, or even armor-piercing capabilities. There is at least one legendary Weapon for each type of Weapon.
