My submission for #Game-Art-HQ's LoZ: Link's Blacklist project.

Death Sword, from Twilight Princess (Arbitor's Grounds) is perhaps my all time favourite LoZ mini-boss ever. I wish you could fight it more than once!

Too cool.  And yeah, I loved this fight, definitely one of the best and most memorable mini bosses, right up there with Dark Link.  Man oh man Twilight Princess had some seriously great bosses and dungeons.  I feel like it's one of the most underrated Zeldas.

I agree, this is one of the coolest mini bosses. The whole Arbiter's Grounds dungeon is cool, since everything has some unknown history to it.

I love the picture, but I won't lie, when I first saw it. I thought it was a LoZ/Okami cross over. I thought the big baddie was the one you fight in the kings stomach.

I still am not sure why they thought as a gamer the first instinct was to cut the ominous looking seals that clearly were put there for a reason. I would have left them alone if the game had let me.

The strings that hold up the sword, the papers on them... aren't they the Japanese papers that have to deal with demons? I'm not sure if I'm right, but does anyone know WHAT those papers mean?

you mean who is he as in what game is he from, or who he is as a character? because I could answer both if you would like.

I know perfectly well what game he appears in, it's just that he get any attention speculation-wise. Perhaps I've been looking in the wrong places; do you know of any sites?

... Actually, I hardly even looked, period.

well, I usually turn to Zelda Wiki, as I find it is often the most accurate and well stocked. they also have well reasoned fan theories, and those are often quite interesting to read.

in the case of the death sword, all you can do is theorize, as you cannot find any mention of him in the game. in my opinion, the theory they have written on his wiki page sounds very plausible: zeldawiki.org/Death_Sword

there may be other Zelda sites that are more official and streamlined than Zelda Wiki, but, like you, I haven't looked all that hard ^^;

One of my favorite mini-bosses as well! It was one of the few parts of that dungeon that I really enjoyed (that and getting to ride the spinner like a badass skateboard haha) because dead things are really creepy haha. The composition of this piece is wonderful, and I really like that you put Wolf Link and Midna in there. I really abused all the situations I could use the wolf form, it was always so much fun!

I find it funny how link got in an ancient temple, found a large sword with dozens of sealing tags all over the place, and just, unseals the damned thing.
