The Ultimate Sword, also known as the L-2 Sword, is a sword from The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. A stronger version of the Sword, the Ultimate Sword is obtained from the Spirit of the Seashell Mansion after Link collects twenty or more Secret Seashells. Aside from dealing more damage, the Ultimate Sword fires sword beams when Link's health is full. Contrary to popular belief, this sword cannot break objects such as signs and pots.
Interestingly, artwork of the Ultimate Sword bears a striking resemblance to the Master Sword, albeit with a change in color: its hilt is a golden hue, as opposed to the typically blue-purple hilt of the Blade of Evil's Bane.
In the manga adaptation the Ultimate Sword belongs to Nakura. After Link loses a fight against Karuna, his old sword is broken. Link then helps Nakura return to his home and as thanks Nakura allows Link to wield his sword. Link proceeds to use the sword to defeat Karuna and the remaining enemies on his adventure.
