The Master Sword is an item used in the Legend of Zelda Series. It first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, where Link would be able to collect it after getting three pendants scattered throughout Hyrule to prove that he is the Hero of Legend. It would later appear in mostly every Legend of Zelda game after it, most recently The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The Master Sword is the bane of evil and only those pure of heart may wield it to defeat the evil that is Ganondorf.



  • It has been speculated, but not proven, that the Magical Sword is the original Master Sword.
  • Since Nintendo has confirmed that Skyward Sword is the first game in chronological order, it has also been speculated that the Goddess Sword is the precursor to the Master Sword
