Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Nayru’s Silent Realm

  1. Return to the sky and exit the Thunderhead, then guide your Wingloft towards the yellow beam of light cutting a hole in the clouds and dive down into the opening. Choose “Stone Cache” as your landing zone, then float safely to the ground via the Sailcloth and use the drowsing ability to locate the direction of the next trial.
  2. Follow the drowsing indicator across the sea of quicksand and onto the ledge in the opposite left corner of the area. Approach the spot of ground that’s attracting both fairies and butterflies, then equip your harp and play Nayru’s Wisdom to reveal the blue floor symbol.
  3. Thrust your sword into the blue symbol to enter the Secret Realm and acquire another Spirit Vessel, then exit the light circle around you to bring the frozen enemies back to life. Make your way towards the large gold triforce symbol beyond the dunes in the distance, then make a left up the next rocky incline to reach the top of a broken wall.
  4. Collect the tear sitting in front of the stone padlock before dropping into the sand behind it, then move onto the ledge ahead and climb the nearby stack of blocks to pick up another tear on the top cube. Make your way onto the area above and head right around the outer ledge, then drop into the sand when you see the animal cages below.
  5. Approach the area that the cages occupy and make your way onto the broken wall behind them, then collect the next tear and drop back to the ground. Approach the cart beside the middle cage and push it against the cell’s solid outer wall, then climb on top of the same rail car and use it to reach the top of the container.
  6. Collect the tear and drop back to the ground, then revisit the large circular platform resting in a lake of quicksand nearby and move left along its edge. Climb the next stack of blocks ahead to collect the tear at the top, then drop back to the platform below and return to the surrounding solid ground by jumping the gap.
  7. Move forward to pass the three animal cages on your left, then take the rightmost path ahead and make your way up the incline to reach the tree at the top. Roll into the tree’s trunk and pick up the tear that you shake loose from its branches, then turn around move towards the wall on the right that runs alongside the previous incline.
  8. After walking a few steps across the top of the wall, turn right and drop to the ground below. Evade the enemy spotlights and move forward, then approach the next tear to the right and climb onto the ledge it occupies.
  9. Obtain the tear you came for and turn around, then move forward into the area infested with spotlight enemies before approaching the right wall. At the wall, turn left to continue moving alongside the barrier until it ends and you drop into a gap full of quicksand.
  10. Climb onto the large circular platform above, then make your way up the nearby stack of blocks to collect the tear on the top cube. Turn around and drop back to the platform below, then clear the gap ahead to reach solid ground and move forward towards the mine cart surrounded by a pool of waking water.
  11. Collect the tear ahead, then approach the aforementioned mine car after the waking water that surrounds it recedes. Pull the cart along the adjacent tracks to remove it completely from the dangerous liquid, then continue yanking the transport in the same direction until you can use it to collect the next tear above.
  12. Continue forward towards the next mine cart at the base of the wall on your right, then climb on top of it to reach the ledge above and collect the tear nearby. Move right along the top of the wall until you see the animal cages below you, then turn right and drop to the ground.
  13. Turn slightly to the left and spot the next two tear locations by the thin beams of green light they emit into the sky. Approach the beam nearest to you and move up the incline to reach the top of the broken wall section, then collect the Dusk Relic on the left and tear on the right.
  14. Head back in the opposite direction and climb onto the wall infested with spotlight enemies that’s in front of the large circular stone platform floating in quicksand.
  15. Approach the first enemy as he’s moving away from you to reach the extra section of floor jutting out on the right, then wait for the spotlight ahead to return and pass by in front of you.
  16. Continue forward along the top of the wall and approach the next spotlight ahead as it moves in the opposite direction, then quickly stand on the floor panel in front of the next frozen enemy on the right.
  17. Wait for the enemy to turn around and move back across the wall, then collect the nearby tear and drop off the edge behind it to land in the sand below.
  18. Struggle through the quicksand to reach the strip of solid ground ahead, then collect the tear on the stairs to your left and turn around. Make your way over to the blue portal and move right towards the ground’s edge, then struggle through the quicksand ahead to collect the tear on the small dirt mound.
  19. Return to the staircase you previously collected a tear from and climb the steps, then make a right upon reaching the top and grab the next vine-covered wall beside you. Climb onto the ledge above and make a left, then grab the next vine-covered wall and move up it to collect the final tear located at the top.
  20. Move into the blue portal from earlier, then obtain the Clawshots and exit the Silent Realm 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! :)
