The Double Helix Sword is a sword from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes.


The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This two-handed longsword is used when Link uses the Fierce Deity's Mask to transform into the Fierce Deity. Aside from its long range, the Double Helix Sword is able to fire magical light blue-colored blasts shaped like buzzsaws, similar to Sword Beams, when used while Z-targeting is in effect; however, each such attack drains one point of magic from the Magic Meter. The sword cannot be unequipped until Link removes the Fierce Deity's Mask.

The Double Helix Sword deals the same amount of damage as the Great Fairy's Sword. The sword cannot be sheathed, unlike other swords that Link can use, but will be put away for the portion of time Link attempts to use a bottle. Link can use the Double Helix Sword to parry a small range of attacks, such as basic whip slashes from Majora's Wrath.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Link's Sword takes on the appearance of the Double Helix Sword when he is wearing the Fierce Deity Armor Outfit and allows him to fire Sword Beams in four directions.

Non-canonical appearances

Non-canon warning: This article or section contains non-canonical information that is not considered to be an official part of the Legend of Zelda series and should not be considered part of the overall storyline.

Hyrule Warriors / Legends

The Double Helix appears as part of Young Link's moveset.

While Young Link wields the Kokiri Sword, when using certain attacks (such as his Weak Point Smashs and Special Attacks) he transforms into the Fierce Deity and uses the Double Helix Sword. Young Link can also transform into the Fierce Deity and wields the Double Helix sword while in Focus Spirit, which adds a Sword Beam effect to his combos and increasing the range of his combo attacks.

Additionally, Young Link wields his Kokiri Sword (which has a slightly longer blade) as a two-handed sword which makes the transition between the two forms more seamless. As a result, there is little overall difference between the two forms in terms of fighting style, saved for the aforementioned Sword Beams the Fierce Deity uses during Focus Spirit.

During Fierce Deity's Focus Spirit Attack, the Skull Kid wearing Majora's Mask appears (along with Tatl and Tael), summons the Moon which the Fierce Deity easily slices in two with his Double Helix Sword, demonstrating that the sword is incredibly powerful weapon in Hyrule Warriors. During Young Link's Victory Cutscene, the Fierce Deity will perform a few slashes with his Double Helix Sword before using it to attack the screen with a jumping slash causing the screen to turn white. It then shows Young Link as he is removing the Fierce Deity's Mask.

Two more unnamed variations appear corresponding with the Furious Deity and Vengeful Deity weapons, though they share the weapons Double Helix blade design.
