The Giant Blade is a class of Weapon used by Impa in Hyrule Warriors.[1] It is associated with the Element of Water.


The default Giant Blade is the Giant's Knife. The second form of the Giant Blade is Biggoron's Knife, followed by Biggoron's Sword.

The Lv.★ Giant Blade is the 8-Bit Boomerang?, which is based on the Boomerang 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 Boomerang? replaces Biggoron's Sunblade when the "8-Bit Weapons" Setting is turned on in Game Settings within the Settings menu.

Special Attack

Main article: Special Attack

The camera zooms in behind Impa as she closes in on her targets. The screen turns dark until it is almost black - aside from Impa who then slashes with her blade, 'cutting' the screen back open and damaging foes. This attack hits in a wedge shape ahead of Impa.
