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

The White Sword is the second sword available to Link in The Legend of Zelda, 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

The White Sword in The Minish Cap 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, with its name in the Items Screen changing to reflect the number of Elements that are currently infused. When infused with the Earth and Fire Elements, it is labeled as the White Sword (Two Elements), and after being infused with the Water Element, it is labeled as the White Sword (Three Elements). After the Wind Element, the fourth and final Element, is infused, the White Sword transforms into the Four Sword.

Each time Link infuses the White Sword with an Element, the hilt of the Sword changes color, and Link is able to make more copies of himself when he charges a Spin Attack over special tiles, with the maximum copies being three. The Four Sword allows him to make four copies of himself.
