The Hylian Sword is one of Link's weapons in Hyrule Warriors. Link starts with a Knight's Sword at the beginning of the game. The sword is like the later-achieved Master Sword, but it is less powerful. The spin attack (activated by holding and the strong attack button and then releasing it) is also weaker. One of the most-notable differences, though, is the shield. The shield has blue stripes on one side and a sort of spiral design. The second tier is the White Sword, earned after unlocking Fi, designed after the White Sword from The Legend of Zelda.

"A sword-and-shield combo modified for use by left-handed warriors. Charge energy by holding down the Strong Attack button, and then release for a powerful Spin Attack!"
