Added DiffLines:

** And to an even lesser extent, there's the Gilded Sword, the final upgrade for the Kokori sword. While the sword itself isn't that big overall, it's quite large compared to Link himself, being almost as long as he is tall. So, from ''Link's'' point of view, it qualifies.


Added DiffLines:

** Meanwhile, Young Link's Kokiri Sword is upgraded to one. While strange at first glance, it was probably made that way so that the character model would remain consistent during attacks that involve him transforming into Fierce Deity Link, since still wields the above-mentioned Double Helix Sword.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', Undyne built a giant sword together with Alphys to satisfy the RuleOfCool, the inspiration being allegedly historical accounts of humans wielding "swords up to 10x their size."

* There are a lot of weapons in ''WarhammerFantasy'' that fit into this trope as well. The Empire, for example, have an infantry unit called Greatswords. Ogre Ironguts have a BladeOnAStick large enough that a normal human could conceivably ram it up a Giant's nose while lying down, and the Kroxigor's weapons were described on the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' page as being "trees with blades on the end."

* The character Arngrim from ''ValkyrieProfile'' wields one of the largest swords ever seen in a console RPG. It is about twice as long as Arngrim is tall, and as wide as a regular Claymore. Considering Arngrim's size, this makes it roughly 12 feet long from point to pommel, with a 9-foot long blade. There is little significance to the fact that he wields such a ghastly-sized weapon, except as a hallmark to the ridiculous one-up-manship that tends to pervade RPG weaponry.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', we have Rose Quartz' Sword, but it only really qualifies for this trope when used by [[BadassBookworm Connie]] or her son Steven. The sword is about as long as Connie is tall, and Rose Quartz herself is about 8 or 9 feet tall, so it's just a normal sized sword for her.

* Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Sideswipe all have retractable wrist-blades in the live-action ''{{Transformers}}'' [[TransformersFilmSeries film series]]. Prime and Sideswipe have two on each arm. Sentinel Prime also wields a huge [[DoubleWeapon double sided]] sword, though his resembles a straight razor.

* Late in season 2 of WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime, Optimus Prime recovers the Star Saber, the sword of Prima, the first Prime. Prima and the Thirteen are a good deal larger than Optimus, and the sword is, as a result, slightly longer than Optimus is tall. [[BigBadassRig Optimus is quite literally, the size of a Mack Truck]]. Megatron later crafts his own [[EvilCounterpart Dark Star Saber]] from Dark Energon, using [[DropTheHammer the Forge of Solus Prime]], a big fraggin hammer also built for someone of that stature.

* ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'' has Josef's sword, Heart of War. It's so huge and wide, most people mistake it for a metal fence post when they see it for the first time.
