Swords of The Wind Waker
From Zelda Wiki, the Zelda encyclopedia
The first sword found in The Wind Waker, it is given to Link by Orca on Outset Island. While Link can train with Orca using the sword, Orca will not give it to Link until the Helmaroc King drops Tetra onto the top of the island. Link temporarily loses it during his first visit at the Forsaken Fortress, accidentally dropping it after being catapulted right into a wall, but he regains it soon afterwards. It is replaced by the Master Sword once Link obtains it.
After Link embeds the Master Sword into Ganondorf's head and goes back to the world above the sea to sail with Tetra, he is seen wielding the Hero's Sword again.

The Master Sword rests in a hidden chamber in Hyrule Castle. When Ganondorf kills Fado and Laruto, the last sages of the sacred realm that remain after the great flood, the Master Sword loses its power to repel evil and Link must awaken two new Sages in order to regain that power. It is twice as strong as the Hero's Sword.
- Main article: Usable Enemy Weapons
Most weapons that enemies hold can be stolen and used by Link. All of them are wielded similarly; they can be swung two-handed (most armed enemies being considerably larger than Link and therefore using larger weapons), and they can also be thrown. Unlike Link's swords, they cannot be sheathed, and Link cannot use his shield while using them. They also cannot be kept as part of Link's inventory and cannot be taken from one room to another. They include three swords: the Machete, the Darknut Sword, and Phantom Ganon's Sword. The Machete is as powerful as the Master Sword, while the other two swords are twice as powerful.
