Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Walkthrough

Table of Contents

The Faron Woods

  1. Move forward and slightly left from the temple entrance to save your game at the statue, then enter the clearing behind it and smash the pots to collect rupees. Head back towards the save statue and continue past it to the opposite side of the room, then make a left and smash the pots in the darkened corner to find the regeneration potion.
  2. Begin climbing the steps at the rear of the temple to activate a cut scene and acquire the ability to place a beacon on your map. Place the map beacon on the red x icon by Faron Woods to continue, then exit the temple through the door on the left and move up the steps ahead.
  3. Follow the dirt trail around until you reach a clearing where Gorko is being mugged by a pack of enemies brandishing clubs. Use targeted sword attacks to eliminate the enemies one by one and activate a cut scene, then choose the “Yeah!” response to hear the whole story and choose “Sure!” after that.
  4. Approach the statue after it reacts to your presence and examine it, then choose “Save”. Turn around from facing the statue and approach the vin-covered wall on the left, then climb up it and enter the cave ahead.
  5. Move forward and push the enormous log down the hill behind it, then turn around and re-enter the cave. Drop back into the clearing below and move down the pathway located to the left of the nearby save statue, then pass through the gates and approach the enormous log from before.
  6. Push the log into the wall ahead and climb on top of it, then move onto the next ledge above and continue forward down the trail to enter Faron Woods. After the cut scene, save your game at the statue ahead on the right.
  7. Move right from facing the statue and jump across the gap to grab the rope, then swing to the next ledge ahead and take a left turn down the trail. Slice through the wall of trees blocking your path to continue forward into the clearing, then eliminate the enemies you encounter and approach the opposite side of the area to activate a cut scene.
  8. Choose the “Zelda?” response option to continue, then follow the Kikwii up the steep dirt incline by dashing all the way to the top. Follow the trail around to the next ledge overlooking a clearing to locate the fleeing kiwi, then drop down and save your game on the statue to your right.
  9. Afterwards, turn around and use your dowsing ability to locate the mushroom in which the kikwii is hiding. Strike the indicated mushroom to unearth the cowering kikwii, then resume the chase to catch up with the creature under a tree down the dirt road ahead.
  10. Approach the kikwii to activate a cut scene, then choose the “Zelda?” response to continue the conversation and confirm your current location on the map. Afterwards, move back up the trail leading behind Machi and sprint up the steep dirt incline ahead.
  11. Follow the trail to the right and eliminate the enemy, then continue along the path and use your shield to protect you from the enemy firing projectiles at the bend.
  12. Look for another enormous log on the right side of the road ahead and push it forward off the ledge, then continue up the trail and cut down the wall of trees blocking your path.
  13. Eliminate the enemies shooting projectiles and continue to the left along trail, then take out the plant that emerges and approach the edge of the grassy cliff ahead to slice the attached rope with your sword. Drop onto the dirt road below and climb up the rope dangling from above, then swing yourself forward and jump to the next grassy ledge ahead.
  14. Approach the large brown animal and speak with it to activate a cut scene, then choose the “Where’s Zelda” response to add kikwiis to your available dowsing targets. Choose the “No, Thanks” option to play out the rest of the conversation, then use the dowsing ability to begin locating the missing kikwiis.
  15. Kikwii #1: Crawl into the opening at the base of the tree on your left when the hunt first begins, then climb the vine-covered wall and cross the tightrope without falling. Drop into the clearing below and eliminate the enemies you encounter to spot a kikwii perched on a nearby branch, then roll into the adjacent tree trunk to shake him loose.
  16. Kikwii #2: Climb the green vine that hangs from a tree in the clearing where you discovered the first missing kikwii and swing yourself forward to reach the ledge ahead, then push the enormous log in front of you off the ledge and drop down after it.
  17. Move forward towards the opposite side of the area to reach a grassy field scattered with mushrooms and turn left, then eliminate the enemy that approaches to collect an Ornamental Skull. Continue forward through an opening in the dirt wall ahead and eliminate the enemies patrolling around the tree in the next clearing.
  18. Return to the area from which you entered the current clearing and face the opening that leads back into the mushroom field. Move left onto the dirt mound portion of the entry point and approach the nearby wall, then dash up it and grab the patch of vines above.
  19. Move up the vines and jump left to grab the other patch of vegetation, then continue ascending until you have to climb sideways and drop down onto the next ledge below. Use your sword to clear away the clumps of grass and reveal the second kikwii.
  20. Kikwii #3: After discovering the second kikwii, drop back into the clearing and exit through the opening that leads you back into the mushroom field. Return to the area outside the ruins and approach the water’s edge, then move left of it and squeeze between the narrow opening in the rock wall to reach a new clearing.
  21. Approach the cluster of palm trees and eliminate the enemy, then continue forward so that you pass the nearby land bridge on the right and drop down onto the next ledge below. Move right and jump onto the enormous log to reach the next area, then turn left and climb up the two dirt ledges above.
  22. When you reach the top, eliminate the enemy shooting projectiles and move through the cluster of grass clumps ahead towards the far wall. Drop through the circular hole in the ground and enter the tunnel beside you to reach the next clearing, then examine the grass clumps by the tree to discover the third kikwii.
  23. Retrace your steps to return to Bucha and activate a cut scene, then jump onto the fallen kikwii leader’s back to collect the Slingshot. Afterwards, use your slingshot to shoot the coiled vine hanging from the tree branch ahead and approach the gap in front of you.
  24. Once the vine has uncoiled, use it to swing across the gap and land on the next ledge across from you. Move forward along the dirt road and beneath the landbridge, then continue down the trail and enter the crawlspace at the end.
  25. Make your way forward to reach the other side of the wall, then cross the grassy mushroom field again and eliminate the attacking birds above with the slingshot. Move up the front steps of the temple entrance and eliminate the enemy at the top, then make a left and climb another set of stairs around the corner.
  26. Turn left and use your slingshot to strike the coiled vine on the tree branch above so that it unfurls to activate a cut scene. Afterwards, climb the hanging vine and swing forward to reach the next ledge ahead.
  27. Enter the cave ahead to reach the Deep Woods, activate a cut scene 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! :)
