Dealing a greater range of damage
The Spin Attack is a recurring sword technique in The Legend of Zelda series. To perform it, the player must hold down a button and release it. In a game that has a Magic Meter, they can hold down the button for a longer time to charge up their sword, and then release it to perform a more powerful Spin Attack.
The Wind Waker
In The Wind Waker, the Spin Attack is one of the many sword techniques taught to Link by Orca during the Sword Training. It is the fourth sword attack learned and is performed by holding 'B' briefly, and then releasing it. A quick spin could be performing by rotating the left stick, and then pressing B.
In Skyward Sword for Nintendo Wii, the player must swing the Wii Remote and the Nunchuck horizontally or vertically to perform a Spin Attack. To perform a more powerful Spin Attack, they must charge their sword by raising it skyward beforehand.
In Nintendo Land attraction's Battle Quest, the sword-wielding player can use both horizontal and vertical Spin Attacks by charging the blade similarly to Skyward Sword.
