Pendant of Courage
A Link to the Past
Obtain the Master Sword
"Ancient Hylian lore states that only the person who wears the Pendants of Courage, Power and Wisdom can become the Hero. It has also been said that only the Hero can wield the Master Sword. The three Pendants are the key to unlocking the Master Sword from the stone in which it has been embedded for eons. When Link obtains all three Pendants, he should go to the Lost Woods and find the Master Sword. After obtaining the powerful work of art, he can go after the root of the evil."
The Pendant of Courage is one of the three Pendants of Virtue in A Link to the Past and A Link Between Worlds. It, along with the two other pendants, is required to obtain the Master Sword.
A Link to the Past
The Pendant of Courage is the green-colored and first pendant found in A Link to the Past. It is found within the Eastern Palace. It is acquired by defeating the Armos Knights. Once they have been defeated, Link is bestowed the Pendant.
With the Pendant of Courage, Link can head down to Sahasrahla's house in the Eastern Palace Grounds. As a reward for acquiring the pendant, Sahasrahla gives Link the Pegasus Boots.
The Pendant is one of three Pendants of Virtue, all three of which are required to obtain the Master Sword.
A Link Between Worlds
The Pendant of Courage returns in A Link Between Worlds, now bearing the symbol of the goddess Farore. As in A Link to the Past, all three Pendants of Virtue are needed for Link to obtain the Master Sword.
Link receives it from Princess Zelda very early in the game, although it is initially only called a "charm". Only after Hyrule Castle is sealed off, and Sahasrahla panics that the Pendant of Courage is sealed inside, does he realise that the "charm" Link is wearing is the Pendant of Courage itself.
