Kokiri Swords are recurring Items in The Legend of Zelda series.[1][name reference needed]

Location and Uses[]

Ocarina of Time[]

In Ocarina of Time, Link must obtain the Kokiri Sword before Mido allows him to visit the Great Deku Tree. The young hero can find the Kokiri Sword hidden away in a Treasure Chest inside the Hole of "L", which is located in the Forest Training Center in Kokiri Forest. This is the only Sword Link can wield as a child and is also the weakest. It is considered a treasure of the Kokiri.[2]

As an adult, it is replaced by the Master Sword, which is longer and has twice the strength. Interestingly and rather infamously, the Giant's Knife, which normally has the strength and range of the Biggoron's Sword, when broken becomes drastically weakened and has the equivalent performance of the Kokiri Sword (but still must be wielded with two hands).

Majora's Mask[]

In Majora's Mask, the Kokiri Sword is the same Kokiri Sword from Ocarina of Time (with an updated hilt), and is equipped by default at the beginning of the game.[3] It can be upgraded to the temporary Razor Sword and then again into the permanent Gilded Sword by taking it to the Mountain Smithy in Mountain Village. Although Link begins the game with the Kokiri Sword, he is unable to use it for a time when he is first transformed into a Deku Scrub by the Skull Kid.

Other Appearances[]

Ocarina of Time (Himekawa)[]

In the Ocarina of Time manga by Akira Himekawa, Link receives the Kokiri Sword from Mido after they defeat Gohma. It is also used to carve a Deku Shield out of the Great Deku Tree's wood.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[]

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, the Kokiri Sword appears in its Ocarina of Time incarnation as the blade wielded by Young Link.

Hyrule Warriors[]

In Hyrule Warriors, the Kokiri Sword appears as Young Link's main Weapon as part of the Mask archetype. However, Link uses both hands to hold it as it is bigger than before. The Kokiri Sword may be a two-handed weapon as Young Link's Fierce Deity Link form also uses a two-handed blade, and performs similar moves to Young Link.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[]

The Kokiri Sword is Young Link's main weapon in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Cadence of Hyrule[]

In Cadence of Hyrule, the Kokiri Sword is found in Hyrule Castle. It is only usable by Link. It deals four damage to an Enemy directly in front of Link. It is said to be intended for a future hero and is meant to defeat anything in Link's path.[4]
