The Sandship’s Deck and Restoring Power to the Engine Room

  1. Move back across the bridge and open the door to re-enter the Sandship, then save your progress at the statue beside you. Turn around from the sculpture and enter the door across the room to reach the ship’s deck, then equip your bow and fire an arrow into the device on the mast pole above.
  2. Send a second arrow flying to strike the purple object that just emerged above and activate a color explosion. Afterwards, use your bow and sword to clear out the enemies that appear on the deck or the mast above.
  3. Cross to the opposite side of the deck and climb up the ladder in the left corner to reach the area above, then turn right and eliminate the enemy in the distance to collect 10 Arrows.
  4. Point your bow at the platform on top of the next mast ahead and take out the enemy occupying it, then fire a second arrow towards this same spot to activate a device that controls a nearby zip line.
  5. Return to the deck below and climb the ladder attached to the mast, then eliminate the thug patrolling the crow’s nest area above and equip your Bow. Take out the enemies standing on the sails around you, then turn towards the nearest zip line and shoot the device atop the upper post.
  6. Approach the zip line on the other side of the sail beam and grab the handlebar, then travel upwards along the rope and drop onto the next platform above. Move left along the pole and onto the next crow’s nest area, then turn left towards the sails across from you and shoot the device atop the upper zip line post on the right.
  7. Turn right and cross the sail beam to reach the next zip line, then grab the handlebar and travel upwards along the rope to land on the small platform above. Make your way across the beam to the left and onto the next crow’s nest area, then thrust the sword into the slot ahead and turn it to the right.
  8. After the cut scene, drop back to the deck below and open the red doors that just unlocked to re-enter the ship. Use the staircases to reach the bottom floor, then move through the hallway in the corner ahead and open the door on the left to enter the next room.
  9. Eliminate the two enemies in the first area by shooting them with arrows, then approach the opposite side of the room and move through the doorway on the left. Take out another thug with your bow attacks and smash the nearby barrels to collect additional arrows, then exit this small room and approach the doorway behind the purple section of the floor.
  10. Move through the hall ahead to reach the room at the end and descend the nearby staircase, then open the door at the bottom of the steps to enter the next corridor. Make your way through the hallway to reach the wide open room at the end, then turn right and eliminate the totem enemy by shooting the blue circle on its head with arrows.
  11. Cross to the opposite wall ahead and make a right down the hall, then open the next door to enter the area split in half and eliminate the enemies within. Speak with the crewman through the bars of the room divider and learn the locations of the two Power Generators, then exit the area and move back down the hall ahead.
  12. Head left across the room and enter the opposite hallway, then open the door at the end and climb the steps in front of you. Make a left down the hall and open the first set of red doors on the right, then eliminate the two enemies in the next room and approach the block against the wall.
  13. Push the crate into the corner on the left, then pull it over the nearby floor switch to open the various entryways above. Afterwards, exit the room and make a right down the hallway to reach purple floor in the next area.
  14. Enter the room ahead with sunshine streaming down into to learn about the Timeshift Stones, then aim your bow at the statue above and fire an arrow through the bars in the ceiling to hit the blue crystal within the sculpture.
  15. Move through the narrower of the two doorway that were just unlocked, then open the blue treasure chest to obtain the Dungeon Map and flip the switch on a nearby wall to lower the bars beside you.
  16. Return to the area ahead and cross the pit of quick sand, then move forward through the hallway and approach the next deactivated industrial wall fan to the right. Use your bow to send an arrow between the fan’s blades and strike the device on the wall behind it to unbar the doorway beside you.
  17. Open the door you just unlocked to enter the next room and eliminate the attacking swarms of bats, then climb onto the ledge that the crate occupies and pull it out from in front of the circular opening before dropping back to the ground below.
  18. Stand on the floor switch by the entrance and aim your bow towards the object you just uncovered, then fire an arrow through the circular opening, between the fan blades and into the device on the other side to unbar the nearby doorway.
  19. Exit the room and return to the area where sunshine was streaming down through bars in the ceiling, then fire an arrow into the Timeshift Stone above to alter your surroundings again and head back across the purple floor.
  20. Open the first door on your right and eliminate the enemy within the next room, then approach the gauge in the corner and thrust your sword into the slot. Turn the blade left to restore partial power to the Engine Room and exit the area.
  21. In the next hallway, move back to the left across the purple floor and make another left to exit the room. Take a right down the hall and climb the staircase in the next room, then open the door on the left to revisit the ship’s deck and move across it diagonally to climb the ladder in the opposite corner.
  22. Move to the wall across from you, after reaching the area above, and turn around to aim your bow towards the mast above. Fire an arrow into the crystal beneath the crow’s nest to sap all the color from your surroundings, then approach the nearby crane and drop over the edge alongside the metal chain.
  23. Land in the lifeboat and enter the nearby opening in the ship’s hull, then make a right through the narrow doorway and eliminate the bats in the next room.
  24. Approach the door on the left and pull down on the wall switch to unbar the entryway, then enter the beams of sunlight streaming through the bars behind you and fire an arrow into the Timeshift Stone above to change your surroundings.
  25. Thrust your sword into the slot on the gauge beside you, then turn the blade left to restore full power to the Engine Room and 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! :)
