The Missing Propeller

  1. Return to the city of Skyloft and enter the Knight Academy, then speak with the Headmaster in his room on the second floor. Select the “Sing it!” response to acquire the clues from the song, then exit the academy on the first floor move through the golden gate ahead.
  2. Make your way down the steps and along the trail in front of you, then make a left onto the next road that Fledge is occupying and cross the next bridge on the right. Run up the hill above the house and approach the windmill to activate a cut scene.
  3. Afterwards, travel to the bazaar and speak with Gondo at the Scrap Shop, then select the “Yes” and “Take Mine!” responses. Acquire the new dowsing target and turn around, then speak with the fortune teller across from you and choose the “Please!” followed by the “Treasure” response.
  4. Choose one of the location options and listen to the clues provided, then exit the bazaar and use your Wingloft to travel to the red beam of light cutting through the clouds. Drop through the hole in the clouds and choose to descend upon the “Volcano Entry”.
  5. Once you land, take the leftmost path of rock platforms leading across the pool and climb the ledges on the other end. Eliminate the blob enemies at the top and enter the tunnel ahead, then dash up the sandy incline at the other end and move onto the wooden ledge to the right.
  6. Eliminate the nearby creature and continue ascending the sandy incline, then take out another enemy at the top and climb onto the summit.
  7. Clear out the village of enemies around you and move across the tower that has fallen over to act as a bridge. Continue forward into the tunnel ahead and climb the vine-covered wall, then equip your net and use it to catch the nearby Volcanic Ladybug.
  8. Cross the rock bridge ahead and eliminate the blob enemies along the way, then jump the next gap and dash up the sandy incline in front of you. Move onto one of the wooden ledges above and eliminate the nearby enemy, then continue up the incline to the next platform and take out two more thugs.
  9. Dash to the top of the incline and climb on the ledge above, then eliminate the nearby enemies and make your way onto the summit. Move left at the entrance door and enter the rocky clearing, then make another left towards the extended ledge and drop over it to slide down a narrow sandy incline.
  10. Approach the red windmill propeller on the right to speak with Fi and have the robot arrive to retrieve it, then return to the city of Skyloft and make your way back to the windmill on the hill. After the windmill is repaired, use your Gust Bellows to turn the propeller until the building has rotated all the way towards the lighthouse.
  11. After the cut scene, make your way to the lighthouse and climb the ladder to the left of the flight deck. Continue up the next ladder above and stand in the center of the landing at the top, then use your harp to strum in time with the expanding light circle until all of the torches around you are lit.
  12. After the mirror shines a beam of light into a wall of clouds in the distance, use your Wingloft to follow the beam’s path out into the sky 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! :)
