Upon retrieving the Master Sword and journeying into the world, a voice will express itself within Link’s mind revealing to Link that the Master Sword is incomplete and that in order to imbue the sword with its true splendor, a trial has been imposed upon Link which he will need to overcome. The Trial of the Sword can be accessed where the Master Sword once rested. The challenge constitutes of a series of floors which Link will need to progress through by defeating all the enemies that reside within that floor. Each time all the enemies are cleared from the floor, Link is able to move on to the next floor. If Link dies during the Trial, the player has to redo the Trial right from the first floor and start over.

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild – The Journey To Find The Master Sword
The Master Sword in the Legend of Zelda is just as iconic as Link, Zelda and Ganon. Rather than a mere weapon, it is tied intrinsically to the conflict between the calamity and the forces that oppose it. The Master Sword represents the existence that combats Ganon and the darkness he embodies. Along with the Princess with the blood of the Goddess and her chosen Hero, the Master Sword is the existence required to seal away the darkness which is why in Breath of the Wild the Master Sword is called the “Sword that Seals the Darkness”. Throughout the many reincarnations and conflicts that have taken place over time, the one constant that remains is the ‘Master Sword’ or what it is referred to in that time being used to restore balance.
