Biggoron's Sword Trading Sequence (Ocarina of Time)
Biggoron's Sword is a recurring item in The Legend of Zelda series.
Ocarina of Time
"A huge, sturdy, and very sharp sword. You can't use a shield while wielding it."
It is earned by completing a long Trading Sequence that involves time limits and other difficult obstacles, in the course of which Link obtains the Broken Goron's Sword, which Biggoron can reforge into his eponymous blade. Biggoron's Sword is so big it requires two hands to hold it — thus, Link is not able to use the Shield while using Biggoron's Sword. The trade-off for not being able to use a shield is that it does the most damage of any sword in the game; double that of the Master Sword. Additionally, unlike the otherwise-similar Giant's Knife, the blade is unbreakable.
Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, Biggoron's Sword is a reward obtained in two ways. If Oracle of Seasons is the first of a Linked Game, then it is obtained from Biggoron atop Goron Mountain. Link then obtains a password to use in Oracle of Ages to obtain Biggoron's Sword there. If Oracle of Seasons is the second game of a Linked Game, then Biggoron's Sword is obtained by a password from Oracle of Ages.
Oracle of Ages
In Oracle of Ages, Biggoron's Sword is a reward obtained in two ways. If Oracle of Ages is the first of a Linked Game, then it is obtained from the Goron Elder at the Goron Shooting Gallery in the Past. Link then obtains a password to use in Oracle of Seasons to obtain Biggoron's Sword there. If Oracle of Ages is the second game of a Linked Game, then Biggoron's Sword is obtained by a password from Oracle of Seasons.
Breath of the Wild
"A legendary greatsword forged by a Goron craftsman for a hero who traveled through time. The exceptionally sharp cutting edge is a testament to the craftsman's mastery."
Biggoron's Sword makes a reappearance in Breath of the Wild, this time as an amiibo exclusive, two-handed weapon. It has a base power of 50 and a durability of 60 (making it the most powerful amiibo melee weapon in the game), and can be obtained by scanning a Link (Ocarina of Time) amiibo through the use of the amiibo Rune. Scanning the amiibo will drop various items from the sky, along with a treasure chest, which has a chance of containing Biggoron's Sword, but can also contain different items. The amiibo can only be scanned once per day.

- In Ocarina of Time (N64), the Giant's Knife and Biggoron's Sword are cosmetically identical. This was changed in Ocarina of Time 3D, such that the Giant's Knife has a brown leather grip and blue pommel and the Biggoron's Sword has a white leather grip and gold pommel.
