Few could doubt the power of the Master Sword, not only has it defeated countless incarnations of Ganondorf in the Legend of Zelda series, but now it has hospitalised a Texan.
A man was stabbed with the point of a replica of the legendary sword during a domestic dispute in the city of Katy.
Eugene Thompson told police how his girlfriend called her ex-husband for help after they got into an argument, with Thompson drawing the sword as a means of defence.
"And I pulled it out and I stood in the doorway and he was just coming down that hall at me while I was yelling ‘Go away, you don’t live here,'" Thompson said.
"And he just walked right into the point. I don’t know if he thought it was a toy."
The man declined to mention whether he collected any rupees following the incident.
The ex-husband was taken to hospital following the altercation, but not before he, in true Zelda fashion, smashed a pot (a flower pot, over the head of Thompson).
Police have yet to confirm whether or not charges will be filed.
