Sword Training Mini-Game
After acquiring the Hero's Sword, Link can speak with Orca to continue his sword training. Here Orca has created a mini-game where Link must attack Orca, while also avoiding or block Orca's attacks. The game ends if Orca hits Link three times. The game will also end if Link gets the maximum score of 1,000 hits. Depending on the amount of hits Link gets on Orca, he can win prizes, including Rupees or a Piece of Heart.
While the top prize for 1,000 hits is a 200 Rupees, if Link reaches 1,000 hits prior to previously reaching 500 hits, he will get the Piece of Heart reward, instead of the Rupees.
