The Colossal Sword is a very large, unique two handed sword found in Morwitijaal Arena. It is wielded by the Bewitched Giant, the first mini-boss of Morwitijaal. It has the same strength as a Dragonbone Warhammer, and swings at the same speed.
As of version 6.2, it is tempered with a steel ingot, but requires Ebony Smithing or an equivalent perk to temper to its full potential.
Background and Inspiration Edit
The Colossal Sword is a reference to the sword wielded by Odolwa in the Woodfall Temple in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Because Giants wield two-handed weapons with one hand, the Colossal Sword easily fits the role of Odolwa's sword, with the Bewitched Giant filling the role of Odolwa in Morwitijaal.
The name and appearance of the Colossal Sword is a reference to Koloktos of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. In his battle with Koloktos, Link picks up and uses its scimitar-like swords against it. The ability to pick up and use the Colossal Sword is a reference to this battle, but also to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, in which Link could use the large weapons dropped by disarmed or defeated enemies.
Prior to version 6.5.12, the sword was essentially an enlarged scimitar. It was redesigned to more closely resemble its inspirations, and to wielded more cleanly by both the player and the Bewitched Giant.
