(Just a note, this blog first appeared in blog form at TDC. But, due to its conjectural value, the topic demands a wider audience.)
During the current replay of The Wind Waker that I am engaging in, I got to the point where Link and Ganon meet for the first time. During the cutscene I noticed some Hylian script engraved on Ganon’s sword. Here’s a screenshot of the script:
I did some research on the internet, and the general consensus that I have encountered about the sword’s writing is that one blade says “Koume” and the other “Kotake”.
Far be it from me violate consensus, but I at a loss to explain the following: the characters seem to be the following:
The characters would translate to HO, N, MO, and NO. The word “honmono” means “real thing” or “genuine article.”
I’ll spare myself the embarassment of venturing a guess and being utterly wrong, and thus leave it up to ZB’s teeming millions to address. What’s “real thing” doing on Ganon’s sword… what’s the deal?
