Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Moldarach Boss Fight

  1. Turn around from the save statue and approach the nearby mine cart, then use your sword to strike the crystal inside of it and unleash a surge of color. Afterwards, jump to the blue platform with a rotor and use the bellows to turn it quickly enough so that you can stay alongside the mine cart to the right.
  2. Slow the turning rotor whenever a jet of air needs to erupt in front of you, then continue forward onto the ledge ahead and cross the bridge in front of you. Eliminate the blob enemies and save your progress at the statue in the corner, then cross back over the previous bridge and approach the ornate door on the left to activate a cut scene.
  3. Place the Ancient Circuit you’re holding over the keyhole of the ornate entranceway, then rotate the piece around until it lines up perfectly in front of the slot. Tap the “Release” button to activate a cut scene that opens the door and initiates the next boss fight with a scorpion monster named: Moldarach
  4. When the fight begins, target either of Moldarach’s claws and lay into them with your sword every time one of them opens up.
  5. Begin focusing the majority of your sword slashes towards one particular claw so that you can remove it sooner than later, then repeat the same strategy to remove Moldarach’s other appendage.
  6. After you have chopped off both of his claws, Moldarach will resort to burying himself in the sand below and popping back up nearby to lunge at you with his tail or pincers. To evade these strikes, keep the boss targeted at all times to track his various methods of attack so that you can dodge in the manner accordingly.
  7. If he continually comes at you with his tail, keep at a distance to stay out of striking range. If the attack is coming in the form of a bite, Moldarach will charge straight at you at an accelerated speed so always be ready to escape with a sidestepping maneuver.
  8. Move constantly around Moldarach in a wide circular motion so that he has as little time as possible to set-up his attacks.
  9. When this creature burrows down into the ground, continue to stay on the move to avoid being an easy target and use the Gust Bellows to spray the ground all around you until the boss return to the surface.
  10. You should also dispense with the smaller enemies that are pushed up through the earth as quickly as possible to keep the pressure on Moldarach consistently.
  11. Approach the boss whenever he rises from the ground and strike him repeatedly by thrusting your sword forward into his face.
  12. Continue the assault in this manner to defeat Moldarach, then activate a cut scene in which the surface you’re standing on suddenly disappears and you are dropped into a room that, until a second ago, was considered an “underground chamber”.
  13. Pick up the Heart Container you were unable to receive earlier to make it official, then search your surroundings for additional items or rupees and exit through the golden door. When you arrive in the next room, approach the mine cart and release the beetle into the air so that you can guide it forward at an upward angle.
  14. Pilot the beetle towards the structure hanging from the ceiling in the distance, then navigate it through the upper opening to strike the crystal within and create an explosion of color. Afterwards, ride through the corridor ahead by entering the mine cart.
  15. Jump out when you reach the opposite ledge, then move through the doorway ahead to activate a cut scene in which the forces of evil attack the temple and you end up acquiring the Goddess’ Harp. After Ghirahim narrowly evades the downward slash of your surprise attack from behind, choose the “Protect Zelda!” response to watch your allies escape by means of time travel.
  16. Save your game after you see time machine explode, then learn of Zelda’s condition from Fi and turn around to cross the stone bridge. Save your progress at the statue ahead on the right, then speak with Gorko at the front entrance 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! :)
