The White Sword is a recurring Sword in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] Despite both Swords sharing the same name, the nature of the White Sword in The Minish Cap makes it impossible that it is the same White Sword in The Legend of Zelda.

Location and Uses

The Legend of Zelda

In The Legend of Zelda, the White Sword is the second sword available to Link, following the Sword and preceding the Magical Sword. It can be obtained once Link has five Hearts in his Heart meter. The young hero can wield this sword by speaking to the White Sword-Giving Old Man in a cave in the northeast of Hyrule near a waterfall, which is guarded by a Lynel.

The Minish Cap

In The Minish Cap, the White Sword is the reforged Picori Blade and replaces Link's first sword, Smith's Sword. The White Sword grows in power as it is infused with the power of the Four Elements. All four elements transform it into the Four Sword.

Each time Link infuses the White Sword with Elements, the hilt of the sword will change colors, and Link will be able to make more copies of himself when he charges a Spin Attack over special tiles, with the maximum copies being four.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

Main articles: Hylian Sword and Rapier

In Hyrule Warriors, the White Sword appears as the Lv.2 form of Link's Hylian Sword.

An 8-Bit version of the White Sword, called the 8-Bit White Sword?, also appears as the Lv.★ form of Zelda's Rapier. It was added to the game with the Master Quest Pack DLC.
