Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Missing Child, Bazaar and Bamboo Cutting

  1. Set a beacon over the purple icon on your map and fly the Wingloft towards the signal, then land on the tiny floating island and open the chest to acquire another piece of Heart Containter. Return to your Wingloft and use him to travel back to the city, then drop in via the Sailcloth and make your back to the Statue of the Goddess.
  2. Enter the statue and place the Ruby Tablet in the opening at the back of the room to activate a cut scene in which another portal appears in the clouds. Afterwards, exit the structure and move through the doorway ahead to encounter a grieving mother.
  3. Select the “Kuki-who?” response, then choose “You got it…” to accept the rescue mission and continue down the stairs ahead. Make your way into the neighborhood on the eastern side of the island and speak with the girl hanging around the outskirts, then select the “I do!” response to finish out the conversation.
  4. Fly your Loftwing over to the Lumpy Pumpkin and enter the building, then move into the dining room and speak with the old man at the table. Choose the “Yep” response and listen to the rest of the story, then exit the building and return to the girl on the eastern side of Skyloft.
  5. Speak with the girl again and enter the red house behind you, then move to the bed in the corner and choose the appropriate amount of sleeping hours so that you wake up during the night. Afterwards, exit the house and use the map to locate the graveyard.
  6. Make your way to the cemetery and approach the headstone closest to the tree, then push it forward to reveal a hidden entrance. Enter the previously closed-off building to the left and drop down through the opening in the floor, then use your Sailcloth to land safely on the ground below and approach the ledge ahead to activate a cut scene.
  7. Afterwards, move right along the walkway of wooden boards and reach the next ledge below to activate an off-camera scream. Enter the door ahead on the left to encounter the winged demon in the next room, then rush towards him and strike once with your sword to reveal his soft side and learn about the Gratitude Crystals.
  8. Choose the “Sure” response option, then speak with the little girl to your left before exiting the room. Return to the red house you slept in earlier and set your resting time so that you wake up during the day, then exit the building and make your way towards the houses along the river.
  9. Locate Kukiel’s house along the river’s edge and enter through the front door, then speak with the mother to collect five Gratitude Crystals before you leave. The house is distinguishable by its red color, the flower box above the door and its caddy-corner location from a set of stone steps.
  10. Return to the Bazaar on the hill, then visit the Scrap Shop to upgrade your shield and slingshot if possible. Pick up the Small Seed Satchel and an Iron Shield at the Gear Shop before exiting.
  11. Use your Wingloft to travel past the red beam of light cutting through the clouds and land on the island featuring a bamboo-inspired house, then enter the building and speak with the man within.
  12. Choose the “What is this place?” response, then select “Sure!” and “You bet!” after that. Wait for the countdown to end, then rapidly swing your sword back and forth to slice the bamboo tree to the ground using the fewest number of cuts possible for the chance to win a prize.
  13. Afterwards, exit the bamboo building and fly your Wingloft down through the opening in the clouds created by the red beam of light. Following a cut scene, use your Sailcloth to gently float to the ground and complete this part of the game.

Just wated you to know that I play on grandsons games at times. I loved ALL the videos of Lengend of Zelda Sklyward Sword!

Love the way you also improvise the actions and characters.
Make it sound real:)

Thought I would just say it all here instead of comenting on each individual video.

Continue the great work, this helps quite a bit in knowing what to do and how to do it, in this game. I would have been lost without these videos. Visualizations are great.

I was up to getting the whip and discovered there are no more videos. Sure am hoping you will continue them. Feel like I am having a withdrawel moment here! LOL

This was a grwat idea for you to do this. Best walkthrough ever!

I just wanted to give kudos to Mitchell for the great job with the Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword videos. They are not only easy to follow but also entertaining. Makes you feel like you are playing along with him.
I am 50 yrs old and play this with my 9 yr old grandson.
Great job Mitchell!

Barbara – if you look around the edge of the screen, you can see a set of arrows that point towards where the bird with the statue is, if you lose track of it. One arrow means that the bird is close, but off screen. Two arrows means it is far away, but off screen. Move Link toward the direction the arrows are pointing, and you’ll see the yellow bird icon show up. From there, climb higher than the yellow bird to be able to dive down onto it and gather speed. Don’t use your boosts (A-button) until you get closer to the yellow bird. Good luck!

I recently came back to the game, skyward sword cause I never finished it.
Unfortunately, I am stuck in the sky keep. I got lost with those puzzle rooms. I did good at first following you, but then it seems like you may have skipped a part cause I could not find the next puzzle you did, only the one after.
I really love the way you explain things and otherwise you have made it so easy to follow. I am hoping you will be able to fill in the gap if you have time. I probably have to start over. I need the room with the lava for the last tri force. But the puzzles seem all mixed up and I end up like a circle over and over.
You are great at this, keep up the good job! :)
