"The ultimate sword. Wield it to discover its true power!"
— Weapon Gallery description.
"A sword blessed by the Great Fairy, rumored to be able to reflect any and all dark magic. Merely holding it fills the wielder with strength, but unfortunately, its protective power did not survive intact in this world, and it is no longer able to resist enemy attacks."
Serving as Link's Ultimate Weapon, the Great Fairy's Sword gains new powers not found in its game of origin. Aside from increased offense and defense, the sword grants Link healing powers, gradually recovering lost health over time, and does minor damage when blocked.
Being Link's super weapon, this addition of more power, healing, and piercing, makes Link one of the strongest fighters in Soulcalibur II while holding it in comparison to all other super weapons.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
The weapon is based on the weapon of the same name from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. This weapon would be bequeathed to Link by the Great Fairy of Ikana Canyaon upon restoring her shattered form to normal as she had been attacked by the Skull Kid wearing the fearsome Majora's Mask. In the original game, it was originally a two-handed sword due to Link's young age, much like the Biggoron's Sword, the ultimate weapon found in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and thus, it could not be used in conjunction with the shield. To compensate for this, it deals four times the original damage the Kokiri Sword could do, making it the strongest weapon in that game (with the same attack power as the Fierce Deity's Helix Sword). It was also unique in that it was equipped to an item button, rather than the standard sword button.
