Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Blessed Idol

  1. Move forward and eliminate the surrounding enemies, then turn your back to the monstrous formation and enter the right tunnel in front of you. Continue eliminating enemies as you enter the next room and make your way around the ledge to the right, then enter the tunnel when you reach the opposite side of the area and eliminate the swarming bats.
  2. Use the net to capture one of the Blessed Butterflies nearby, then continue forward and read the tablet on the wall for clues. Turn around and exit the tunnel, then jump across the purple lake using the lily pads nearby and use the whip to clear the pink flower from your path.
  3. Move onto the large circular stone platform nearby and approach the purple waterfall spewing from the mouth of the statue, then release your beetle into the air and pilot it through the sculpture’s left eye socket.
  4. Guide the beetle through the tunnel and strike the crystal ahead to deactivate the falls, then pilot another beetle through the opening you uncovered beneath the rock sculpture and snatch up a bomb off the ground.
  5. Navigate through the tunnel on the right and above the purple lake when you exit on the other side, then pilot the beetle into the area directly behind where your character is standing and drop the bomb against the fractured boulder atop the column.
  6. After the explosion, turn left at the wall ahead and use your whip to grab the branch above. Swing to the platform across from you and climb the vines to reach the top of the rotating column, then jump to the next column and drop onto the second ledge below.
  7. Turn around and move forward along the ledge, then jump to the vine-covered wall at the end and make your way upwards. Climb onto the ledge above and approach the broken jail bars, then use the whip to pull down on the lever to your right so that the platform below reverses its rotation direction.
  8. Drop onto the platform below and ride it left towards the wall, then make your way up along the next ledge and eliminate the enemies in your path. Turn left at the end of the ledge and jump to the vine-covered column, then drop onto the platform below after you are rotated into a wall.
  9. Turn around and move left along the ledge, then jump across the next gap to grab the vine-covered wall and begin making your way upwards. Climb onto the next ledge above and approach the broken jail bars, then pull the lever on the left with your whip to change the direction of the previous column’s rotation.
  10. Turn around and jump the gap ahead to land on the previous ledge below, then grab back onto the vine-covered rotating column and climb upwards. Drop onto the ledge below when you rotate into the next wall, then head towards the sunbeam in the distance and fight off the swarm of bats along the way.
  11. Collect the Monster Claw and drop into the next cavern ahead, then exit the area through the tunnel in the wall and turn the wheel in front of you by pulling it with the whip. After the geyser is uncovered, return to the previous cave and climb up the rope at the center of the room.
  12. Shimmy up the rope at full speed to outrun the enemies that begin pursuit and shake the remotes to break free of any thug that is able to latch on to your leg. Continue upwards until you exit the cave and disappear into the sunlight, then climb onto the next ledge above and read the tablet at the top for additional clues.
  13. Flip the switch to extend the nearby ledge, then approach the hooked lever between the next gap on your right and use the whip to pull down on it. After the large statue rises off the ground, slide back down the previous rope to return to the cave below and exit the room through the tunnel in the wall.
  14. Move forward and drop to the ground beside the geyser, then move left and open the treasure chest at the bottom of the next pit to obtain the Blessed Idol. Dash past the enemies that appear and climb out of the pit to let the large statue descend in your place, then open the sculpture’s door and move into the geyser at the center of the next room.
  15. Ride the string of geysers to the top floor and examine the pink flower keyhole, then rotate the Blessed Idol until it lines up with the slot and press the release button to open the sun roof above. Climb up the nearby stairs to reach the top of the statute, then use the whip to turn all four wheels in the area one at a time.
  16. After the statue’s head rises into the ceiling above, save your progress and exit the room via the staircase 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! :)
