Damaging enemies


The Giant's Knife is an item in Ocarina of Time. It is a powerful, but fragile two-handed sword.

Ocarina of Time

"A large, keen, yet easily broken, blade. You can't use a shield while wielding it."

Ocarina of Time 3D in-game description.

In Goron City, Link can go to the second floor where Medigoron's Blade Store is found. It is blocked by stone walls, which Link can simply blow up with Bombs or Bomb Flowers. If Link speaks with Medigoron, he will tell him that he is working on "something really cool", which will take him five or six years to finish. When Link returns as an adult, he can purchase Medigoron's small sword for 200 Rupees. However, after hitting it eight times or four times at enemies, it breaks, and is reduced to the power of the Kokiri Sword. It can be repaired by Medigoron for another 200 Rupees, but will break again in use.

As a two-handed weapon, Link cannot use his shield while wielding it, and will only bend down if the shield button is pressed with it in-hand. It does twice as much damage as the Master Sword.[1]

There is a similar blade made by Biggoron that Link can acquire after completing the Trading Sequence. Unlike the Giant's Knife, Biggoron's Sword never breaks.[2]


  • In Ocarina of Time (N64), the Giant's Knife and Biggoron's Sword are cosmetically identical. This was changed in Ocarina of Time 3D, such that the Giant's Knife has a brown leather grip and blue pommel and the Biggoron's Sword has a white leather grip and gold pommel.

  2. "You traded the Giant's Knife for the Biggoron's Sword! This blade was forged by a master smith and won't break!" — In-Game Description, Ocarina of Time.
