Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Water Dragon

  1. Search your surroundings for various rocky obstructions piled against the wall, then spin attack one of the nearby puffers patrolling outside of it to launch the fish into the boulders.
  2. Use this tactic to uncover all the rooms hidden around the area, then enter the one housing the fleeing enemy and select “Her excellence?” during the conversation you have with him to learn the location of the Water Dragon.
  3. Place a line of beacons between your current location on the map and the red x nearby it, then return to the open underwater area and swim to the right.
  4. Approach the uppermost rock obstruction and use the nearby puffer to uncover the tunnel behind it, then swim into the opening and move forward to reach the next area on the other side.
  5. Breach the surface to learn the Spin Jump controls, then move to the wall across from the iron gate and turn around. Swim forward and begin diving down towards the bottom of the gate, then ascend just before reaching it and execute a spin jump to launch yourself out of the water.
  6. After clearing the iron gate and dropping into the next area, swim forward to the opposite wall and use a spin jump to land on the ledge above. Save your game at the nearby statue, then turn right and follow the inclined ledge around to eliminate a blob enemy.
  7. Open the treasure chest at the top to acquire the Goddess Plume, then dive back into the previous pool of water below and exit the area through the tunnel opening near the ground. Swim forward and use a spin jump to clear the next gate, then dive beneath the surface and approach the new breed of enemy ahead.
  8. Eliminate this enemy by moving against a nearby wall and allowing the creature to turn red in anger, then wait for him to charge and spin dash out of the way before he reaches you.
  9. After the giant fish is momentarily stunned from crashing into the wall, finish him off with a spinning attack and approach the next underwater door.
  10. Move through the doorway after it’s been opened for you to reach the next chamber, then swim to the surface and climb onto the platform at the center of the area to encounter the Water Dragon.
  11. Choose the “Water Dragon?” and “Of course.” responses to learn the details of your next task, then select “You got it!” to receive a new dousing target.
  12. Return to the water and use a spin jump to reach the ledge above on the left, then move left again and open the treasure chest to acquire the Silver Rupee. Turn around and move forward along the ledge, then exit the area through the next passageway on the left.
  13. When you’re outside again, turn right and follow the dirt trail into the narrow canyon ahead. Confirm your location on the map, then push the log in front of you over the edge before dropping down after it into the next clearing.
  14. Eliminate the Moblin and enter the next clearing by cutting through a wall of small trees blocking the path nearby. Use the log on your right to reach the ledge above it, then move forward along the dirt road ahead and use a bomb to clear away the next obstruction of boulders on the left.
  15. Collect the Piece of Heart you uncover and exit the opening in the wall, then make your way up the ledges on the right and move onto the log at the top.
  16. Climb into the next area above and take a right up the grass-covered incline, then move left along the top of the rock bridge and cross the tightrope when you reach the wall. Pick up the Piece of Heart, then roll into the nearby wall to shake loose and collect the Woodland Rhino Beetle.
  17. Drop into the water at the base of the tree and swim left to return to the temple, then move up it’s rightmost set of steps and climb the hanging vine at the top.
  18. Swing yourself between the two nearby statues and land on the next ledge behind them, then enter the doorway ahead and continue forward to enter the next clearing. Eliminate the enemy and fend off the attacking swarm of bees with your sword, then use the log to climb onto the ledge above and move forward.
  19. Clear out the creatures blocking the path ahead and drop onto the brick road below, then make a left down it and take out more enemies along the way. Approach the next log on your left and use it to reach the ledge above, then move right and eliminate any nearby enemies.
  20. Drop down the series of grass ledges ahead to reach the ground and climb the nearby steps, then use the front entrance to enter the temple and save your progress at the statue inside 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! :)
