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.

I was conflicted on that for a moment and only placed it here because "The Legend of Zelda" was in the title.

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!

Why isn't Demise's and Ghirahim's swords on this? You have other enemies weapons, why not theirs?

:iconrekkaatsuma:
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.
