Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Great Tree and The Kikwii Hermit

  1. With your back to the temple in Faron Woods, move forward along the right side of the area and approach the Wooden Shield Moblin guarding the entrance to the next area ahead.
  2. Defeat this type of Moblin by targeting the enemy and sprinting straight at him head-on, then vault up and over the shield so that you land behind him to strike his vulnerable backside.
  3. After learning the weaknesses of this Moblin breed and defeating it, return to the circular clearing in front of the temple and speak with Bucha to learn the powers of the Water Dragon’s Scale. Move left from Bucha and enter the waterway on the right, then swim forward along the river’s floor and enter the tunnel opening at the end.
  4. Swim forward through the tunnel and collect the air bubbles to avoid drowning, then continue through the catacombs until a cut scene activates. Afterwards, climb the vine-covered wall in front of you and turn around when you reach the top.
  5. Equip your slingshot to eliminate the puffer fish patrolling nearby, then jump to the hanging wooden platform in front of you to take out the next group of enemies and equip the Gust Bellows.
  6. Use the bellows to propel the platform you’re on backwards, then cut off the jet of air to swing forward and jump across the gap in front of you.
  7. Land on the next platform and eliminate another set of enemies, then use the Gust Bellows to swing forward and reach the ledge ahead. Enter the next passageway in the rock, then move left up the tree ledges when you’re on the other side.
  8. Move up the vine-covered wall on the last ledge and make your way to the left around the enemy, then drop onto the next ledge below and fend off the bee attack until the swarm disperses. Use the slingshot to take out the next wave of spiders ahead, then move back onto the vine-covered wall and climb all the way to your left.
  9. Climb upwards when you reach the far wall and drop onto the next ledge beside you, then cross the bridge inside the tree and vault over the Moblin’s shield to reach the exit behind him.
  10. Save your game at the nearby statue, then move up the path wrapped in a spiral around the outside of the tree and eliminate the enemies that approach by knocking them off the ledge with your sideways sword strikes.
  11. Collect the relic in the knothole and continue forward around the tree, then eliminate the attacking swarm of bats to reach the next vine-covered wall. After listening for the song, climb to the next ledge above to spot the Kikwii and release your Hook Beedle into the air.
  12. Guide your beedle into striking the Kikwii name Yerbal and choose the “Sure can.” response, then select “The flame” option followed by “I promise.” After learning about Farore’s Flame and the location of the Water Dragon, place a trail of beacons leading from you to the red x icon on your map.
  13. Select the “Got it!” response and turn around, then drop off the ledge and use your Sailcloth to float to ground below. Follow the trail of blue light beacons from your map to return to the temple and climb its rightmost set of steps, then look at the symbol on the floor when you reach the top to activate a cut scene.
  14. Afterwards, use the statue at the top of the nearby steps to save your progress and drop back into the field in front of the temple. Move forward along the right side of the area and take out the Moblin, then use the dirt mound ahead to climb up the vine-covered wall on the right.
  15. Move onto the next ledge to the left and use a bomb to clear away the rock obstruction, then open the chest you uncover to collect a Golden Skull before dropping back to the ground below. Cross to the opposite wall and enter the crawlspace, then make your way through to the side and follow the dirt trail to the left.
  16. Continue past the end of the trail and use the hanging vine ahead to swing across the next gap, then eliminate the blob enemy and move to the left of the dirt mound it occupied. Approach the left side of tree nearest to the wall and drop over the ledge ahead, then move up the dirt trail in front of you and cut through the wall bushes in your path.
  17. Approach the symbol on the stone wall and speak with Fi, then charge your sword with light energy to enter draw mode and use the blade’s tip to etch the shape of a circle within the smallest moon. After the gate opens, move through the tunnel behind it and and dive off the platform at the far end to enter Lake Floria below.
  18. After the cut scene, make your way towards the tunnel directly in front of you and swim through it to drop into the next room via a small waterfall. After encountering the water enemy, dive beneath the surface and swim in pursuit of this new creature until it squeezes through the wooden boards blocking the tunnel entrance ahead.
  19. Use your charged spinning attack to smash through the barricade and confront the fleeing octopus, then choose the “What’s wrong?” response to learn about the Water Dragon. Afterwards, continue following the sea creature through the tunnel and collect air bubble along the way while avoiding the spiked mines.
  20. Smash through the next wooden barricade ahead to exit the tunnel and continue forward along the right side of the next area, then swim over to the statue and save your progress 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! :)
