Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

Clawshots Target Practice

  1. After completing the second trial, equip the Clawshot and fire it at the target below the next save statue to pull yourself onto the ledge that sculpture occupies. Save the game and move right across the top of the wall, then take your next left and approach the stone padlock ahead.
  2. Move to the left of the padlock and drop onto the temple stairs below, then climb the steps and make a right before reaching the entrance at the top. Follow the outer ledge of the temple around to the rear side of the structure, then drop to large stone platform below and jump across the gap in front of you to reach solid ground.
  3. Approach the smaller quicksand pit to the right of the animal cages and fire your Clawshot into the target above, then climb on top of the wall and move left. Make the next left to approach the cube and destroy it with a blast of light energy, then turn around and move forward.
  4. Instead of making a left or right at the previous fork in the bridge, continue forward and drop over the edge between them to land in the quicksand below. Fire your Clawshot into the target near the corner ahead and climb on top of the next wall, then make a left and eliminate the Moblin blocking the path.
  5. Approach the end of the wall in front of you and drop to ground below, then use the nearby statue to save your progress. Move to the right of the statue when you’re done, while continuing to face the wall ahead, and stop just before reaching the quicksand.
  6. Walk backwards until the target over the next ledge becomes visible, then fire the Clawshots into it and pull yourself up against the wall above. Drop to the ledge below and move left, then cross the series of rock platforms to position yourself in front of the sand falls.
  7. Fire the Clawshots at the target beneath the wooden structure above and pull yourself onto the ledge that sticks out from the sand falls, then move into the next tunnel ahead to enter the Lanayru Caves. Once inside, make your way forward into the open cavern ahead and speak with Golo on the opposite side of the area to learn about the Sand Sea.
  8. After receiving a Small Key, turn right and use explosives to clear away the rock obstruction against the wall lined with wooden barrels. Open the treasure chest to receive a Monster Horn, then learn about snatching the horns off the heads of enemies and collect the items you’ve uncovered.
  9. Approach the ledge that occupies a locked entryway at the top of it and fire your Clawshot into the target hanging over the door, then pull yourself against the wall above and drop to the ground below 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! :)
