Pedestal of Time
A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, the Pedestal of Time can be found deep within the Lost Woods. Link can retrieve the Master Sword from here after retrieving the three pendants: the Pendant of Courage, the Pendant of Wisdom, and the Pendant of Power.
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, the Pedestal of Time is located within the Temple of Time behind the Door of Time. To get the Master Sword here, Link needs to collect the Kokiri's Emerald, Goron's Ruby, and the Zora's Sapphire, and then play the Song of Time in front of the Door of Time.
The Wind Waker
In Twilight Princess, the Pedestal of Time is hidden deep within the Sacred Grove, which is reached after collecting all the pieces of the Fused Shadow. Unlike in the other games, it serves other functions besides being a resting place for the Master Sword. Link can also put the Master Sword back into the pedestal to remove the statue blocking the way. In the past, putting the Master Sword into the pedestal causes a staircase to appear, which leads to the next dungeon, the Temple of Time.
