Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Lanayru Mine

  1. Return to the Statue of the Goddess in the city of Skyloft and enter the structure, then approach the altar at the back of the room and insert the Amber Tablet into the available opening to activate a cut scene.
  2. Afterwards, exit the statue and return to your Wingloft. Fly towards the yellow beam of light cutting through the clouds and dive into the hole below to land at the Lanayru Mine, then slide down the ladder in front of you and save your game at the nearby statue.
  3. Locate the next cube near the back of the clearing you’re in, then destroy it with your sword’s light energy and exit the area via the path beside the save statue. Move forward down the incline to enter the darkened mine shaft, then eliminate the bats swarming above you and approach the mine cart blocking the exit ahead.
  4. Push the mine cart forward to pass through the doorway and continue shoving it along the track until it falls over the ledge ahead, then drop down after it to pull the car over to the opposite wall.
  5. Climb on top of the mine cart to reach the ledge above, then continue forward through the tunnel and strike the purple gem in the next room to cause a rainbow color explosion.
  6. Jump into the mine cart in the surrounding area to ride it along the track and smash through the doorway ahead, then open the chest to collect the red rupee and return to the cart to leave the room.
  7. Exit the car when it comes to a stop and head to your left, then move into the entryway with the mine tracks leading out of it and approach the next cart in front of you.
  8. Eliminate the blob enemies and push the mine cart out of the cave so that it changes color, then ride around the track through the next door ahead and pick up the bomb to the right.
  9. Throw the explosive into the sculpture of a bowl that’s against the nearby wall, then wait for it to detonate and move through the entryway you’ve just created.
  10. Take out the blob enemies ahead and move across the river of quicksand to reach the small ledge on the left, then pick up the bomb and toss it into the nearest basket sculpture on the wall. After the wall sculpture falls forward into the sand, pick up another bomb and jump on top of it.
  11. Toss the bomb into the next basket sculpture on the wall across from you and wait for it to detonate, then jump onto the statue’s back after it tips into the sand and enter the hidden crawlspace in front of you.
  12. Eliminate the blob enemies in the next room and open the chest to collect a red rupee, then exit back out through the crawlspace use your bombs to knock down the remaining wall sculptures.
  13. Collect the treasures behind the fallen statues, then continue up the river of quicksand by entering the tunnel ahead. Jump across the stone platforms to reach the next open room, then wade through the quicksand ahead and avoid the enemy projectiles at all costs.
  14. Climb on the platforms near enemies and take them out with a bomb or slingshot strike, then wade over to the ledge against the wall that features a mine cart out front and eliminate the blobs. Move up the nearby incline and use a bomb to clear the boulder from the track in the next room, then approach the corridor on the left and pick up another bomb.
  15. Roll a across down the river of quicksand below and destroy the nearest boulder ahead, then continue bowling the explosives down the corridor until all of the large rocks are obliterated and another color explosion occurs.
  16. Move forward across the river of quicksand that has now transformed into a field of grass and eliminate the plant enemy, then pick up the Ancient Flower ahead and exit through the doorway in the wall by the blue crystal.
  17. Smash the pots on the right collect rupees and continue forward through the tunnel, then eliminate another plant enemy and open the blue chest on the platform ahead to acquire a Blue Bird Feather.
  18. Drop to the ground below and eliminate any surrounding plant enemies, then approach the mine cart against the nearby wall and push it forward. Ride forward along the rails and out the next door ahead to 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! :)
