Location and Uses
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, the Biggoron's Sword is a far sturdier version of the Giant's Knife, which Biggoron crafted for the Master Craftsman, and is a very powerful sword. It can be obtained completing the Trading Quest. The blade is much longer than the Master Sword and deals twice as much damage. It's handle also changes from yellow to blue. However, it must be wielded with two hands, meaning that Link cannot defend with a Shield while equipped. If the Shield button is pressed, he attempts to protect himself with the blade.
Despite being the strongest weapon, the Biggoron's Sword is incapable of defeating Ganon as only the Master Sword can deliver the final blow. However, it can be useful during the final battle, as Ganon knocks the Master Sword out of reach before getting it back.
Oracle of Seasons
The Biggoron's Sword is the strongest Sword in Oracle of Seasons. It can only be acquired in a Linked Game by using passwords. The Biggoron's Sword is obtained from Biggoron himself. While every other item in these games is assigned to one hand and can be used in conjunction with another, the Biggoron's Sword takes up both slots as it is held with both hands. Link swings it in a whole 180-degree arc, as opposed to the other Swords' 90-degree slash. The Biggoron's Sword is 67% stronger than the Noble Sword and 150% stronger than the Wooden Sword. Excluding the 180-degree arc, the only other difference from the Master Sword is that it can kill Armos in one hit.
Oracle of Ages
The Biggoron's Sword is the strongest Sword in Oracle of Ages, as it works exactly as Seasons. It can only be acquired in a Linked Game by using passwords. The Biggoron's Sword is obtained from the Goron Elder who resides at the Goron Shooting Gallery, after telling him the Elder Secret and scoring 300 points at the Shooting Gallery. The Biggoron's Sword is 67% stronger than the Noble Sword and 150% stronger than the Wooden Sword. Excluding the 180-degree arc, the only other difference from the Master Sword is that it can kill Armos in one hit.
Breath of the Wild
In Breath of the Wild, the Biggoron's Sword is an amiibo exclusive two-handed Weapon. The Weapon will rarely appear in a Treasure Chest after scanning the Ocarina of Time Link amiibo using the amiibo (Rune) Rune, but only after freeing one of the Divine Beasts. It's noted to have been forged by a Goron craftsman for a hero who travelled through time, with a cutting edge that speaks to its creator's master. It has a base attack power of 50.
Biggoron's Sword is made of metal, and will therefore attract Lightning if it's equipped during a storm. It will also sink in water, but since it's magnetic, it can be picked up with the Magnesis Rune. Finally, it won't burn if exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate.
In Soulcalibur II, the Biggoron's Sword is one of Link's weapons. Paired off with the Hylian Shield, the Biggoron's Sword can be bought in Merak, Antares, or Pollux for 4000 Gold while playing the Weapon Master Mode. When Link equips it, his attack goes up to 130% while his defense stays the same. Although the Biggoron's Sword is incredibly powerful due to its long reach, it is wielded with only one hand and thus drains Link's health with each swing.

In Hyrule Warriors, the Giant Blade that Impa wields is based on the Biggoron Sword. The final tier of the moveset is the Biggoron Sword itself, though modified as a curved Sword instead of a straight one.
- In the original version of Ocarina of Time, the Biggoron's Sword is sheathed in the same Scabbard as the Master Sword. However, in Ocarina of Time 3D, the blade receives its own Scabbard.
- Ocarina of Time contains unused text for the Giant's Knife, meant to be displayed when it is exchanged for the Biggoron's Sword, provided that Link possesses the Giant's Knife. The final version makes no mention of the replacement, and instead the Giant's Knife is simply discarded.
- Despite being the unbreakable Biggoron's Sword from Ocarina of Time, the Biggoron's Sword will indeed break in Breath of the Wild. Interestingly, the Biggoron's Sword model has nicks in the blade, indicating it has lost its unbreakable status due to long age. However, replacements can be acquired by using the same amiibo again with the amiibo (Rune) Rune.
