Winning the Wing Ceremony Race

Return to the Main Walkthrough Page

  1. Press the indicated button, as you fall through the clouds, to call up and ride your Loftwing. Follow the on-screen instructions to learn the flight controls and attacking maneuvers, then save your progress after the cut scene activates.
  2. Afterwards, choose the “Yeah!” response option to begin the ceremony and learn the rules of the contest, then choose the “Nope” response to continue the cut scene. When the challenge begins dash forward and launch yourself off the end of the wooden platform, then call upon your Loftwing to begin the chase.
  3. Follow behind the yellow Loftwing and keep it in your sights as you flap the wings of your own bird to ascend. When you are a considerable distance above the target, push your Loftwing into a dive to gain speed and move right up behind it.
  4. Tap the dash attack button a few times to close the gap even more and activate a cut scene in which Groose temporarily knocks you out of the race. Afterwards, repeat the same maneuver to catch up with the yellow Loftwing again and use the dash attack to bat away the eggs being thrown at you.
  5. Close the gap on the yellow Loftwing again, then capture the Bird Statuette to obtain victory in this challenge. During the cut scene that proceeds, you will obtain the Sailcloth which allows you to jump from any height without taking damage.
  6. Choose the “Nope.” response option and learn the Sailcloth controls, then Zelda will push you off the statue. As you fall through the air, guide yourself over the circular stone platform at the center of the courtyard and use your shadow to make sure you’re landing in the right area.
  7. Open the sailcloth before striking the ground to land on the circular stone platform and activate another cut scene, then watch the cut scene that proceeds to see Zelda kidnapped by a black storm and complete this area 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! :)
