Hans' sword saw combat during the prince's assault on Elsa's ice palace. In the struggle against the palace guard, Marshmallow, the sword was used to sever the snowman's leg, leaving him crippled and causing him to fall into a chasm.
After Hans returned to Arendelle with Elsa, he used the sword in an attempt to kill her in the hopes that summer would be restored. However, the blade shattered after it made contact with the frozen hand of Anna, who sought to shield her sister with her body.
- The blade can be seen frosting over prior to impact with Anna's hand.
