The Rapier is a class of Weapon used by Zelda in Hyrule Warriors. It is associated with Light. The Rapier grants Zelda the power to use the Light Arrows and the power of her Triforce of Wisdom as part of her moveset.
The default Rapier is the Polished Rapier. The second form of the Rapier is the Glittering Rapier, followed by the Gleaming Rapier.
The Lv.★ Rapier is the 8-Bit White Sword?, which is based on the White Sword from The Legend of Zelda. It was added to Hyrule Warriors with the Master Quest Pack DLC. In Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, instead of appearing as a separate Weapon, the 8-Bit White Sword? replaces the Gloomy Rapier when the "8-Bit Weapons" Setting is turned on in Game Settings within the Settings menu.
