Animation of the Wooden Sword.

The Wooden Sword is an early-game melee weapon, and the weakest of the seven wooden swords. It is considered a significant upgrade from the starting Copper Shortsword due to its higher damage and broadsword arc motion. This facilitates pushing enemies further away, and it is therefore recommended to craft this sword as soon as possible if one is not strictly adhering to another class.

On the 3DS version, all newly created characters begin with a Wooden Sword instead of a Copper Shortsword. However, here it inflicts less damage than the Copper Shortsword. This disadvantage may be negated by the fact that it can strike flying enemies (unlike the Copper Shortsword).

Its best modifier is Legendary.
