- — In-game description
Fake Swords are items from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. False copies of the legendary Master Sword, Fake Swords can be found all over the Lost Woods. Apparently, these were placed there to act as decoys for anyone searching for the Master Sword. They cannot be wielded or used like a regular sword; however, they can be picked up and thrown. Throwing one at an enemy will result in damage equal to that caused by a sign. They are also an answer to a clue in the Quest for the Whirlwind Sword Attack in the Game Boy Advance port.
