The Master Sword is one of Link's weapons in Hyrule Warriors. It is unlocked after completing the scenario "The Sacred Sword" in Legend Mode. Stored in the Temple of the Sacred Sword, it is responsible for keeping one-quarter of Ganondorf's spirit sealed.

It works very similarly to the Hylian Sword, though with a base attack of 300, it is more powerful than most obtainable swords. The Master Sword has one skill slot that is sealed when first obtained. To break the seal, the player will have to obtain every weapon of every character in Adventure Mode. Once every weapon has been obtained, the player will need to defeat a total of 25,000 enemies (10,000 in Legends and Definitive Edition) when using the Master Sword in order to obtain the true Master Sword. The Master Sword will then receive the skill "Evil's Bane" which will give an extra 200 points toward the Master Sword's base attack making the Master Sword the strongest weapon in the game with a base attack of 500 (except in Legends and Definitive Edition, where weapon levels 4 and 4+ have a base attack of 500 and a per-star scale of 50).

In Legends and Definitive Edition, the Master Sword has a second seal that requires the power of all plus-grade weapons. Defeating 15,000 enemies after obtaining these weapons breaks the seal, giving the Master Sword the skill Exorcism, boosting its base attack to a whopping 900 and allowing players to break cursed seals on other weapons.
