"This magical sword was forged in the lava of Death Mountain. It leaves white-hot flames in its wake when the blade glows red."
Flameblades are an elemental one-handed sword type found in Breath of the Wild. They have a base power of 24, and can be found in areas around Hyrule, such as the Eldin Great Skeleton or in the Coliseum Ruins after the World Level has increased enough, and in various Shrine of Trials. It has a rather thin grip, and the blade itself is made from a strong metal which glows red hot once it is charged.
The blade has the ability to set enemies alight, but requires a short period of time to recharge before unleashing the flames once more. If a flameblade hits an enemy's wooden shield, it will catch fire and burn. Flameblades can be also used to create updrafts and light wood to make campfires.
While Link has a Flameblade equipped the temperature around him will be raised; an effect equivalent to level 1 Cold Resistance in cold regions such as the Hebra Mountains, but which can raise his temperature to the point where Heat Resistance is required in hot areas. This can also be used to melt ice, such as the blocks surrounding Hebra Tower.
Flameblades are unique among weapons in the game due to the fact that they may be brandished by Lynels, making it the only non-Lynel related weaponry that they can carry.
