 [Top 5] Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Best Swords 


How good are Swords in the game?

The swords in the game are excellent, depending on which one you find!


Swords with over 24 Attack Points are swords with lots of power.


One-handed swords unleash charged attacks more efficiently because they're faster and made for quick striking.


Two-handed swords unleash charged attacks, too, but are best for spin attacks! Some swords are better than others because they have special abilities.


This list goes from early game to late game. It may contain spoilers, so please read it at your own risk.


5.      Mighty Zonaite Swords 

Zonaite Sword stats

10 Damage 

When fused with Captain Construct IV Horns, it delivers 60 Damage! 

When fused with Zonai devices, it delivers 21 Damage! 

Multiple variations of Durability Up + abilities. 

Passive Ability: Zonai-Powered


The Mighty Zonaite Swords are one-handed weapons. They can be found in dungeons or labyrinths. They are easy to find early in the game because Captain Constructs wield them at their campsites or shrines. You don't necessarily need to find treasure to find Mighty Zonaite Swords.


It's a versatile sword because it has a great passive ability, increasing its damage strength with Zonai devices. It also means you can create many purposes with it when fusing Zonai devices with the Mighty Zonaite Sword for far-range or close-range combat. 


It's also more durable than decayed or rusty weapons. For example, making a Flame Emitter Club with a 10 Damage Royal Broadsword and 1 Damage Flame Emitter will deliver 11 Damage power. It easily breaks after 8 strikes. 


Making a Flame-Emitter Club with a 10 Damage Mighty Zonaite Sword and a 1 Damage Flame-Emitter delivers 21 Damage! It breaks after 30 strikes. 


Why the Mighty Zonaite Sword is Perfect Early Game: 

The Mighty Zonaite Sword is a great weapon early in the game because you will need a frequent sword to take out dungeon bosses and their underlying pity followers. 


The Mighty Zonaite Sword becomes frequent as you progress through the game and follow the story beats. Most players will achieve Mighty Zonaite Swords by accident throughout their journey who got it from Great Sky Island, Soldier Construct camps, completing shrines, or exploring the Regional Phenomena's dungeons. 


The game makes it clear that enemies that hold valuable weapons can respawn your favorite weapons you've found in the past. Mighty Zonaite Swords is one of them, and it's free, unlike other best swords in the game that require prerequisite labor. 


What Mighty Zonaite Sword Is Good For: 

  •  The Mighty Zonaite Sword should always fuse with a Zonai Device because it will strengthen the sword. There are different purposes for each Zonai device attached to it. For mid-range- combat, fuse it with a flame or first emitter and use charged attacks to burn or freeze enemies coming dangerously close to you!


  • As another example, you can fuse the sword with a cannon for far-range combat. In some situations, you may need to take out normal Bokoblins wearing stone armor or try to subdue enemies like Silver Boss Bokoblins off balance. 


  • Use a shock emitter for close combat! It's effective for immobilizing enemies such as Captain Constructs, Silver Lizalfos, Silver Moblins, Silver Bokoblins, and Silver Lizalfos. Other Zonai materials best for close combat are Small Wheels, Big Wheels, Sled, and Hydrant. 


  • Use the sword to push enemies away! When fused with a Fan, swing your sword to gust them away with the wind. It's fun pushing enemies off of cliffs! 


  • Fuse the sword with ancient blades, canons, electric shock emitters, flame emitters, and frost emitters to defeat dungeon bosses. You'll need a combination of destructive power and strike power. You'll need this against Muktork, Marbled Gohma, and Queen Gibdo. 


How to get the Mighty Zonaite Sword: 

There are few treasures where the Mighty Zonaite Sword can be found.

 It's usually best to revisit dungeons you've completed or raid a Soldier Construct camp. You can get one instantly near  Ibara Butte.

  • It's best fused with monster parts such as Dragon Horns, Gleeok Horns, Flux Construct Cores, Silver Boss Bokoblin Horns, and White Maned Lynel Horns. These fusions are ideal for fighting against Marbled Gohma, Muktork, and Queen Gibdo. As another example, fuse a Flux Construct Core to spin an attack against Blue White Froxes!


  • It's perfect for raiding enemy camps! You can move around Link's spin attack and hit as many surrounding enemies as possible. The charged attack is almost as great as the spin attack, creating a perfect final blow when fused with a Fire Gleeok Horn! It creates a burst of flames.

  • Fuse strong materials onto the Master Sword, such as the Gloom Sword or the Ancient Blade. The Gloom Sword deals 41 Damage, and the Ancient Blade deals 50 Damage. In the Depths, the Master Sword reaches over 101 Damage with the Gloom Sword and 110 Damage with the Ancient Blade.
