Swiftblade I,[3] also known as Swiftblade the First,[4] is a character in The Minish Cap.


Swiftblade I is the eldest of the Blade Brothers, and "lives" under his grave on the southwest side of Castor Wilds, which Link can push upwards to access. He teaches the Great Spin Attack, which he claims only he has mastered.[5] Swiftblade I will not train Link until he obtains the first seven Tiger Scrolls.[6] There is a Piece of Heart inside his dojo.

According to Swiftblade in the Swordsman Newsletter, Swiftblade I spends his free time battling Cows at Lon Lon Ranch.[7]
