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

Variations

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.
