Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Return to the Sacred Grounds

  1. Mount your Wingloft and fly towards the green beam of light cutting through the clouds, then dive down through the hole activate a cut scene. Afterwards, move into the next area directly ahead of you and climb up the vine-covered wall, then continue forward and make your way down the stairs to open the door at the bottom.
  2. Practice the Harp Controls, then strum the instrument in time with the light circle’s movements until all of the torches around you are lit up. After learning the Ballad of the Goddess and raising the Gate of Time, exit the temple to activate another cut scene.
  3. Jump down into the bottom of the pit in front of you to investigate the tremors and encounter the next boss enemy you must defeat: The Imprisoned
  4. Target the Imprisoned’s toes and use your sword to chop them off one by one until the creature falls to the ground face first. If you suddenly see red electricity course through the boss’ body at any point, retreat to a far distance to avoid a stomping attack.
  5. Once the Imprisoned is laid out flat on the ground, approach his head and strike the indicated grey antennae with upward sword strokes. Immediately following this, the creature will begin a furious crawl up the ledge that leads to the surface.
  6. Quickly approach one of the steam geysers erupting from the floor near the spiral ledge and open your sail to ascend onto it behind the Imprisoned. Continue chasing the boss until he regrows his toes and antennae, then use the same assault strategy from before to knock him down again.
  7. Attack the antennae for a second time and use another geyser to reach the ledge above the boss, then wait for him to grow back his toes and antennae before dropping down onto his head. Approach the antennae and strike it repeatedly with your sword until the Imprisoned is defeated.
  8. Drop back to the bottom of the pit and strike the spike with a blast of light energy from your sword to create a seal. After the cut scenes, save your progress at the nearby statue 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! :)
