Eldin Volcano

  1. Save your progress on the nearby statue, then move forward to the right of it and approach the lava flow to activate a cut scene that teaches you basic bow controls. Afterwards, continue around the rock bridge and jump to the circular platform ahead when you reach the end.
  2. Jump across the next platform to reach the ledge ahead, then move up through the passageway to activate a cut scene. Afterwards, continue forward along the path ahead and drop down over the left edge at the fork in the road.
  3. Land on the small ledge below and pick up the red rupee, then climb back up the vine-covered wall to return to the area above. To make sure that you land on the lower ledge and not in the lava, drop down at the only section of the cliff’s edge that has grass growing on it.
  4. Continue down the next path to the left and take out the flaming bats that swoop down from above, then make your way across the rock bridge and take the first available left. Eliminate any remaining nuisance of the flaming bats and enter the next grassy area ahead, then talk with the yellow creature in the ground and select the “No way!” response.
  5. Choose the “Bomb what” and “Not really‚Ķ” response options to learn the basic controls for using bombs. Afterwards, pick up one of the nearby bombs planted in the ground and hurl it at any of the surrounding entrances that’s suffered a cave-in to clear away the boulders.
  6. Continue using the bombs to unblock all the passageways that are currently impassable, then climb onto the recently cleared circular platform embedded in the nearby wall and collect the blue rupee.
  7. Pick up a bomb and approach the crawlspace, then toss in the explosive to clear the way and crawl inside to collect the rupee. Exit the crawlspace and enter the doorway lit by a torch, then collect the Amber Relic off the floor before returning to the outside again.
  8. Eliminate the large yellow blob enemy by repeatedly chopping it in half with your sword until it is no longer able to split in two, then enter the tunnel to the left of where you acquired the previous relic. Move through the corridor and return to the outside, then save your progress at statue on the right before continuing along the path to the left.
  9. Take a left when the road splits and use your sword’s light energy to destroy the cube, then turn around and drop onto the next ledge below on the right. Pick up a bomb from against the wall and toss it into the crawlspace ahead to clear it out, then move into it and make your way forward to reach the other side.
  10. Open the chest to acquire the red rupee, then pick up the heart flowers and return to the crawlspace. Make your way through the opening to reach the opposite side and climb back onto the road ahead, then approach the yellow creature in the ground and talk with him.
  11. Afterwards, continue up along the path to activate a cut scene in which you spot a bizarre red and yellow seal. Drop down to the ledge that the seal creature was just residing on and pick up a bomb, then approach the jet of fire shooting from the wall ahead and toss the explosive you’re carrying to destroy it.
  12. Climb to the next ledge above and continue forward up the hilly terrain, then eliminate the three red enemies at the top and make a left towards the cliff edge. Drop down to the lowest section of ground below and use bombs to eliminate fire-breathing skulls, then cross the bridge made from a dinosaur’s spinal bone to activate a cut scene.
  13. Afterwards, move back across the bone bridge and pick up a bomb. Turn around and position yourself in front of the left half of the bridge, then roll the bomb forward so that it doesn’t fall in the lava and detonates near the magma spewing from the wall on the other side.
  14. Turn around and climb back over the series of ledges above, then make a right at the top and dash up the front of the cliff ahead to reach the top of it. Eliminate the enemy and climb onto the next ledge above you, then move forward along the path and eliminate the skull enemies by throwing bombs into the holes on top of their heads.
  15. Drop over the ledge behind the fallen skull enemies and collect the Heart Piece, then climb back onto the previous ledge and return to the road where you last spoke with one of the yellow ground creatures. Make your way onto the ground below with the jets of steam erupting from it, then ride these blasts of air upwards to enter the doorway above and land on the grated gold ledge.
  16. Jump forward to fall down the ventilation shaft, then steer your descent towards the left wall so that you land on the first rock ledge that rises beneath you. Open the blue chest to acquire some Eldin Ore, then turn around and drop over the rock ledge to continue your freefall descent.
  17. Use the Sailcloth to float safely to the ground below, then save your progress at the statue next to the mine tunnel entrance lit with torches. Approach the corner opposite from the save statue and climb onto the next ledge, then follow the path around and pick up another Amber Relic by the enormous steam vent.
  18. Return to the previous area and move through the mine shaft entrance lit with torches, then approach the creature in the ground on the left to talk with him. Move past the creature and drop into the next open cavern ahead, then eliminate all of the red enemies you encounter to activate a cut scene.
  19. Afterwards, return to the ground creature you met previously and select the “A way forward” response to acquire the Digging Mitts. Approach the left corner ahead, then use your new mitts to dig into the floor’s soft spot and uncover a geyser of steam.
  20. Ride the air jet upward onto the ledge above and dig up a red rupee in the floor ahead, then take the path that forks to the left and follow it around to reach a dead end. Dig up the soft spot in the ground to uncover a steam geyser and use it to launch yourself onto the ledge above, then climb up the ladder against the wall to reach the next area.
  21. Eliminate the red enemies you encounter and search the huts for additional items in clay pots, then approach the two openings in the wall that lead to ice slides and enter the right one. Slide forward along the ice and drop onto the small rock ledge below, then open the blue chest to acquire some Eldin Ore.
  22. Return to the first steam geyser you were able to dig up and use it to launch yourself onto the ledge above, then take the right fork and follow it around to reach a more open area. Move left and dig up the soft spot in the corner across from you to talk with one of the ground creatures, then turn right and make your way through the archway ahead.
  23. Turn left at the next jet of fire ahead and enter the crawlspace in the column to your right, then make your way forward to reach the other side and dig up the soft spot in the ground to collect hearts. Exit the room and turn right at the wall, then move forward into the left corner ahead and pick up a bomb.
  24. Throw the bomb at one of the sections of surrounding wall with a noticeable crack in it to blast a hole in the rock, then open the blue chest you uncovered to acquire a Silver Rupee. Enter the adjacent circular room with the enormous steam vent at the back, then collect the Amber Relic and Eldin Ore amongst the grass clumps.
  25. Dig up the soft spot in the floor closest to the enormous vent against the wall above and uncover a geyser of air, then use it to launch yourself onto the next ledge and enter the blast of steam to activate a cut scene. After landing in the new area, approach the nearby fork in the road to speak with one of the ground creatures again.
  26. Take the fork to the left, then approach the gap ahead to activate an extending bridge and a cut scene. Cross the bridge and save your progress at the statue on the other side, then move left down the nearby path and follow it forward to eliminate a group of flaming bats.
  27. Continue along the path ahead and use the platform floating in lava to clear the next gap, then dash up the sandy incline by hugging the right wall and cut left onto the wooden platform at the top when you’re above it.
  28. Eliminate the enemy and sprint to the left again to reach a dirt ledge by the wall, then dig into the soft spots to collect rupees before picking up the nearby bomb.
  29. Approach the edge behind the bomb after picking one up, then roll the explosive down the hill below so that it detonates by the wall of boulders at the bottom. Follow the rolling bomb off the ledge ahead and move down the hill through the pathway you just blasted clear.
  30. Continue forward along the path and eliminate the blob enemy, then drop down off the ledge ahead to land on the next platform below. Move forward across the gaps to reach the opposite ledge, then destroy the cube with a blast of light energy from your sword and turn around.
  31. Head back across the gap by using the floating platform and climb back up the ledges, then enter the tunnel to the left and return to the sandy mountain from before. Dash up the incline again and move onto the wooden platform near the top, then turn to face the peak of the hill above and continue sprinting up it.
  32. Avoid the rolling boulders and move directly underneath the enemy standing at the top of the hill, then climb to the ledge he’s standing on and eliminate him quickly with your sword.
  33. Defeat another enemy and approach the village ahead to draw the rest of the caveman out in the open, then clear out all remaining threats and pick up a bomb from between two of the huts.
  34. Toss the bomb towards the entrance ahead that’s been blocked by a wall of boulders, then enter the cave following the explosion to activate a cut scene and converse with Tubert.
  35. If you wish to play the game of Thrill Digger, select the difficulty level and choose the “You bet!” response option, then search the field of dirt spots when the countdown ends and collect as many rupees as possible without digging up a bomb.
  36. Afterwards, exit the room and pick up another bomb from the ground in front of you. Move out into the village clearing and turn left, then toss the bomb into the wooden tower by the edge of the cliff to tip it over.
  37. Climb on top of the fallen tower and move forward across it, then enter the cave on the other side and climb up the vine-covered wall in the back to reach the ledge above. Move right along the path and eliminate the ooze creature, then continue to the next gap ahead and jump over it.
  38. Dash up the sandy incline in between the two wooden platforms above, then move sideways onto one of them and eliminate the enemy. Turn to face the next section of the climb ahead, then continue sprinting uphill and move onto the next wooden platform above.
  39. Jump over the boulders rolled down at you from the peak and eliminate any nearby enemies, then continue the dash up the incline and move beneath the three caveman standing on the ledge above you.
  40. Move onto the far left end of the ledge and eliminate the three enemies with sword attacks to collect an Ornamental Skull, then climb the next ledge above and make your way forward to activate a cut scene.
  41. Afterwards, choose the “Zelda” response to add another target to your dowsing inventory and save your progress at the statue by the temple door. Turn around and move right to the end of the checkered tile floor, then dig up the soft spot in the ground nearby to acquire the first piece of the key.
  42. Continue into the next area ahead and approach the gap in the rock wall to the left, then pick up a nearby bomb and roll it down the hill below so that it detonates by the wooden structure at the bottom. Drop down the hill after the bomb and approach the fallen wooden tower, then dig up the soft spot that was hiding beneath it to pick up another piece of the key.
  43. Dash back up the sandy incline and return to the previous area above, then move to the wall across from you and dig up the soft spot in the corner to uncover a steam geyser. Pick up a bomb from nearby, then move into the steam geyser so that you and the explosive are launched next to the wall of boulders above.
  44. After the explosion, use your sword’s light energy to destroy the cube and drop back to the ground below. Enter the camp on the opposite side of the area and eliminate another wave of cavemen, then pick up a bomb from within one of the huts and toss it at the wooden tower by the edge of the cliff to knock it over.
  45. Climb onto and cross over the fallen wooden tower to reach the other side, then enter the cave and eliminate the flaming bats that attack from above. Take out the ooze enemy and collect the Amber Relic from behind the first pointed rock formation jutting out of the ground, then continue into the cave ahead and turn left when you enter the next open area.
  46. Approach the narrow ledge along the wall and drop over the side to grab it with your hands, then shimmy to the right along the shelf and pull yourself up at the next landing. Climb onto the ledge above to the left and jump across the gap beside it, then move right along the path until you reach the end of the road.
  47. Jump out over the ago ahead and grab the vine-covered wall across from you, then climb all the way to the right before making your way upwards. Move onto the next ledge above on the left and enter the nearby doorway, then stand on the golden floor panel to extend the bridge outside.
  48. Move onto the narrow pathway located at the back of the room and follow it around to the left, then quickly dash through the super-heated room before the flames kill you and take the first right into a tunnel that provides shelter.
  49. Ride the dirt chute forward and drop onto the sandy incline below to continue sliding, then steer into the steam geyser on the right to launch yourself onto the ledge above. Dig up the soft spot to uncover a fairy, then trap it in a bottle for future use if possible.
  50. Turn left and dash across the incline to reach the opposite steam geyser, then use it to launch yourself onto the other ledge above and dig up various items. Approach the edge that faces the bottom of the hill, then drop to the ledge below and destroy the cube with a blast of light energy from the sword.
  51. Drop back onto the sandy incline and continue sliding downhill, then steer through the tunnel and land on the next rocky surface below. Dig up the surrounding soft spots to collect additional items, then approach the ledge that overlooks another steep hillside and drop down onto it.
  52. Continue downhill by taking the slide that splits off to the right, then hug the left wall as you go to eventually land on a small dirt ledge that appears below. Turn left and wait for both jets of steam in front of you to erupt, then jump into the first one with your Sailcloth to glide across the gap ahead and use the second one to reach the next ledge above.
  53. Dig up the soft spot in the ground to uncover a piece of the key, then drop into the leftmost dirt slide and ride it until you land on the rocky surface below again. Move forward along the rock bridge and clear the gap ahead, then turn right and jump across to the next ledge against the wall.
  54. Enter the room ahead and pick up the bomb, then turn around and exit through the opening in the wall. Turn right and toss the explosive into the magma spewing from a hole in the wall, then re-enter the previous room after the lava levels drop and pick up another bomb.
  55. Toss the explosive far enough forward so that it lands on the sandy incline below and rolls over into the upper left corner to destroy the wall of boulders. Run forward along the incline to reach the unblocked entrance in the corner, then dig up the soft spot within to acquire another piece of the key.
  56. Exit the room and return to the rock bridges outside, then clear the next gap ahead and jump to the ledge on the right. Head up the path and enter the doorway on your right, then jump into the enormous steam vent at the back of the room to ascend.
  57. After landing in the new area, exit the current room and cross the bridge you extended earlier. Follow the path around into the tunnel on the left and cross over the fallen wooden tower from earlier, then approach the ledge ahead that overlooks the sandy incline below and pick up a bomb.
  58. Toss the bomb down onto the incline so that it rolls along the left wall and explodes by the cluster of boulders. After the blast clears away the cave-in, jump down onto the sandy hill and make your way towards the opening in the left wall.
  59. Climb into the opening you just cleared and dig into the soft spot to acquire the final piece of the key, then sprint back up the hill to reach the summit and approach the temple doors ahead. Use the re-assembled key to unlock the front door and enter the Earth Temple to complete this part of the game.

Hi,
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!

Hi,
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! :)
