Evolution of Link's Sword Wallpaper by BLUEamnesiac Evolution of Link's Sword Wallpaper by BLUEamnesiac
Update: 11/28/2013
Happy Turkey Day everyone!  The wallpaper has been expanded to include everything from A Link Between Worlds and has been expanded to a 4K resolution for future installments.


Update: 06/14/2013
The Master Sword from A Link Between Worlds was just added. Holy cow, I'm running out of room! Pretty soon I'll have to expand this to a 4K resolution at minimum just to keep up with new Zelda games.


Update: The wallpaper now includes the Machete (Wind Waker), Koloktos' Sword (Skyward Sword) and the sword shown in Battle Quest that was shown at E3 yesterday.


Sorry for the large sized wallpaper, but there were so many swords to fit. Unfortunately I had to make room and omit non-canon swords, but there are links to them at the bottom. For the purists out there, there may have been some level of interpretation with swords that had little detail. Also, the Elemental White Swords from Minish Cap are guesstimates at best. But what can you do? This is as close as we're going to get to seeing them all together in something that is as close to official artwork as possible.

Would the Knight's Sword/White Sword from Hyrule Warriors go on this wallpaper, or on the non-canon one? I'm really loving the design on this white sword and thought it was worth mentioning to you (:

hyrule warriors isn't a cannon game so it won't be on here it will be on his wallpaper for non-canon swords. Once he gets around to it of course

I guess that "non-canon" here means "outside Nintendo games". That explains why the sword from Battle Quest is here (Nintendo Land IS a Nintendo game, obviously) and the ones from Soul Calibur II (a Namco game) aren't.

If my memories are correct, Link use a Sol-infused Master Sword in Zanto's Palace. So why it isn't showed?

Billyblue98 Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014
Maybe in the next update? If I'm not mistaken, though, that only added a white-glow to the Master Sword. Adding it sounds like a waste of space to me. The same could be said for the Full Power Master Sword in Wind Waker, but it's more useful, as in Overworld usage, and is actually shown as a separate Item, I think, from memory. I haven't actually beaten the game myself, only ever played HD, but I'm at those two temples. I'm set to enter them, but first, SIDE QUESTS!

RekkaAtsuma Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's only the swords Link himself ever holds in his hands and uses in battle in some way: The WW Machete, Phaton Ganon and Darknut swords for example are all usable on the foes that drop them in battle.
Neither Girahim nor demise are ever struck by their own blade in Link's hand.

You can actually use Phantom Ganon's Sword? Is there a second fight? Cuz I only played the first fight (Only ever played WWHD) and he never dropped the sword.

RekkaAtsuma Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah I was slightly mal informative: In windwaker, Toon Link does use the sword, but only after the final blow in the last level of WW and not against PG but against a barrier of sorts, however that does count it as a sword "Link used in battle in some way".

Okay, I don't understand this.

WHY. NO. DD?!!! Seriously, you've drawn like every single sword from the Legend of Zelda series (counting the ones you listed not actually from the series), and you drew them absolutely beautifully. This is history of a long, still-running game series that has touched the hearts of many all over the world.

I do hope this is fixed soon. It's just... I'd so give this a DD if I could.

The BS Zelda that's a remake of the original contains the same sword and the Ancient Stone Tablets is non-canon.  Also, there was never any official artwork for the latter released, only giving us a tiny sprite to go by. :shrug:

:iconotaku4242:
otaku4242 Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2013  Hobbyist Artist

here's my theory

there are 2 main villains in the Zelda franchize, ganon, and vaati

now, ganon is just a reincarnation of demise

what if vaati was a reincarnation of Ghirahim. they look similar.....ish


maybe vaati revives ganon, then the somehow uses princess Zelda to turn ganon back into demise, then demise uses his demonic powers to turn vaati back into ghirahim.

the master sword would detect this and fi would be released


course its just a theory

A GAME THEORY!!!!!!!!

Billyblue98 Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014
I love that channel. But I don't think Demise needs to come back for Fi to come back. I also don't think Vaati and Ghirahim should be the same person. Just my opinion though.

2DS=crappy idea for people who don't know how to use a slider. Or Parental Lock.
Also, is there any game available for both DS and 3DS? At all?
