Is Wii Motion Plus required for Skyward Sword?
Yes, you must have Wii Motion Plus (or a Wii Remote Plus) in order to play Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Is Ganon really not in Skyward Sword?
It's true. According to producer Eiji Aonuma, "Ganon typically appears in a Zelda game when the
story is centered around the Triforce. This time around, the Triforce sort of takes on a different
meaning and plays a different role in the story. So because of that, Ganon will not appear."

It is known that the one of the primary antagonists is Ghirahim, who seeks to revive an ancient
demon.

The Wing Ceremony
Today is the Wing Ceremony, a race to determine who graduates and becomes a knight. Zelda's
Loftwing gets you out of bed. You begin in the Knight Academy. Move the camera with the C button
and Wii remote. You can sit in chairs and get a blue rupee out of the cabinet. Leave your room and
you'll be in the hallway of the Knight Academy.




Talk to Pipit. You can pick up pots with A and throw them by flicking your wrist. You can even bowl
them underhanded.




Talk to Fledge by the barrels. The guy by the barrels asks you to carry a barrel to the kitchen. Check
your map with + and you can see a dining area is just behind the dude with the barrels. Carry the
barrel into the kitchen. If your stamina meter runs out (blinks first) you need to put down the barrel. Do
not throw the barrel. Yes, there is a restroom you can "explore."

Exit the academy through the big double doors. Here you can make your first save statue. Here you
can save your game -- there are no automatic saves like in previous games, so return here when you
need to save!




You can run around with A and soon a man will call to you from above. Look at him with Z. He'll tell
you to dash up the boxes near by. Hold A to dash up the crates and from here you can save again if
you want.
Note that there's a speech bubble above Horwell. This usually indicates a Side Quest. If you want to
help Instructor Horwell find Mia, you can by climbing up the nearby ledge and shimmying around.
Push the box against the wall on the landing and climb up and grab the furry creature.




A stamina fruit is on the ground here, you can run through these to pick them up and refill the Stamina
Gauge on the fly.

Head towards the large statue in the north and you'll finally meet up with Zelda. As you speak with her
you can choose what you want to say. Your choices won't affect the game, only Zelda's responses.

After the cutscene, Zelda will push you off the cliff. Press DOWN on the D-Pad to call your Loftwing.
He will ignore you!




After the cutscene, you need to find Horwell. Head back to the Academy, just down the steps to the
southwest.




Right outside the Academy (to the left of the door) is Horwell. Now, head to the stone Light Tower in
the southern Plaza area. A boy will stop you on the way to talk about bugs. You can roll into the tree
using the Nunchuk and a Sky Stag Beetle will appear. You don't have a Bug Net so you cannot catch
it. Read up about bugs in the Bug Collection section.




In the Plaza you'll find your opponents in today's race, Groose, Cawlin and Strich. You will initiate a
cutscene with dialogue choices when you approach them.

Clearly, your bird has been captured by these jerks. People will tell you to find Pipit now. He's at the
Sparring Hall talking to Fledge. Head back to the Sparring Hall in the northwest and talk to Pipit. He'll
show you Waterfall Cave on your map. It's on the east side. Before going, you'll need a sword!




Enter the Sparring Hall. Talk to the big guy in front, then head through the door into the back. Here is
a chest with the Practice Sword!




You can now talk to the guy in front for a sword lesson if you so desire. You can also skip it!




Practice your slashes on the logs in the room. You can swing both nunchuk and Wii remote in one
direction to do a spin attack -- it will sap about half your Stamina Gauge.
The Instructor will show you how to do everything, some angles are not so apparent. You'll have to
swing down from the left etc.

The Fatal Blow is for fallen enemies -- or logs. Swing both Wii Remote and Nunchuck downwards to
jump up and stab the fallen enemy.

When you leave the Sparring Grounds, a Sheikah Stone will rise out of the ground. These can give
you hints.




Now, head straight for Waterfall Cave. Head towards the watery area and look for the source of the
flow. By the waterfall in the east is a cave with several wood posts in front of it.




Waterfall Cave
Chop down the posts with the sword. Inside the cave are Keese. Slash wildly to kill them. Chu Chus
will hop onto you if you get close. Nail them with basic attacks to kill them. If they latch one, waggle
the Wii Remote as show to get free. Follow the single path through the cave. If you check the map,
you can see the path you are taking -- zoom in to see the dots in your path.
On your left before you reach the bottom of the decline is a broken fence, look for a hole in it and you
can run through this, jump across a gap and open a Chest' with a Red Rupee in it!




Dash to get up the steep incline at the bottom of the sloping path. You can climb some vines on the
southern edge of the cave to find a Chest with a Red Rupee in it. The real treasure is a stash of two
Red Rupees near the exit. Cut down the grass by the exit and crawl into the small hole to pick them
up.




Exit the cave and save at the Bird Statue. Zelda will join you. You'll see the Crimson Loftwing ahead.
Slash the four rope spots on each side of the boarded up area to free the bird.




With your bird free you can now fly to the ceremony. After the cutscene, jump of the ledge and press
DOWN on the D-Pad. This time your Loftwing will catch you.




The instructions given are a bit misleading -- to fly you'll want to do more than tilt up and down. The
key is to swing your Wii remote vertically to flap the bird's wings and gain altitude. The waving motion
is somewhat like waving a giant fan at the TV. After you gain height, tilt the Wii Remote down to dive.
This is how you can win races and get around quickly.

A will give you a dash of speed, but you have limited dashes (marked as feathers on your screen) that
will recharge. B will slow you down.




After the tutorial you'll land and talk to your opponents. Groose is apparently infatuated with Zelda.
The Race

The goal of the race is to catch the yellow bird with the small statue. Look at your elevation meter.
Slowly flap your wings by moving up and down with the Wii Remote and then, when you get to the
top, dash down. Use the A Button dash to span the final distance between you and the bird. Only at
the top of the elevation meter should you dive down. This requires subtle movements, not wild
maneuvering.




After you get the bird once, the second round will begin. This time you must dodge projectiles, but
catching up to the bird requires the same climbing and diving principles.




After the race you will be awarded with the Sailcloth. Test it after the long cutscene with Zelda. Just
before hitting the ground, hit B and you will break your fall! You need to aim for the circle below.
Subtle movements allow you to control your descent -- this can be irritating.




After this, another cutscene will play. In this scene, Fi will contact you. When you wake up, Zelda is
gone and you are back in the Knight Academy. After the cutscene with Gaepora, you can leave.




You can open the cabinet for a Blue Rupee again. Out in the hall the ghostly figure of Fi will appear.
Follow her up the stairs and down the hall and then outside. The gate to the Goddess Statue is
locked, and Fi will lead you down some ledges to the east of it.




The freaky cat thing you encounter can be disposed of easily. Stab it a few times and it will cower in
fear. You can, however, pick it up and throw it off the cliff, if you are a horrible person. Drop of the
ledge to the right and open the Chest for a Red Rupee.




You can jump up and grab the ledge Fi leads you to. Move left to inch along the ledge. Run up the
ramp, killing any Keese or Chu Chus in your way. Jump to the vines and climb them, shaking the Wii
Remote to dash upwards.




When you get to the statue, Fi will enter its base.




Inside the Statue of the Goddess

Inside the statue is a sword, and it turns out Fi is the keeper of that sword.
Draw the sword with A and use the Wii Remote to yank it out with an upwards motion. This is the
Goddess Sword.




You will also get the Emerald Tablet, one of three tablets that complete a panel. Walk up to the Use a
Skyward Strike on the blue wing emblem (hold the Wii Remote pointing upwards, then swipe the
blade once it is fully charged). Now you can place the tablet in the panel.




This opens a small rift in the cloud barrier allowing you to reach the surface. You can now talk to Fi
using DOWN on the D-Pad any time you wish.




Save your game. Finally, you'll get the Green Uniform. Headmaster Gaepora will encourage you to
visit the Bazaar before leaving Skyloft.




In the hallway, you'll get the Adventure Pouch from your pal with the red cheeks, Fledge. You can fill
your Adventure Pouch with items from the Bazaar. The Adventure pouch can be expanded one slot at
a time throughout the game. You won't store main items in this, like the Beetle or Slingshot, but
consumable items and bottled items are stored here.




Head to the Academy and you will get ANOTHER item. You can get a free Wooden Shield by talking
to Horwell outside the Academy. It can be used by holding the Wii Nunchuk aloft -- hold it up and your
shield will be raised. Shake the nunchuk to deflect items and attacks with the Shield and prevent it
from sustaining lots of damage. You can repair (or replace) shields at the Bazaar in Skyloft. You must
equip the shield by pressing the - button to bring up the Adventure Pouch menu.

You can now change how the screen looks:

Interface Options

     Standard - A Wii remote outline on the right and button layout.
     Light - Just buttons on the right.
     Pro - Nothing but hearts and rupees.




Go to the Bazaar now. It is just to the south of the Academy in the center of Skyloft. In the Bazaar,
you can buy various things. You can't buy Bombs, Arrows or Seeds until you have a Slingshot, Bow
or Bomb Bag, but you can buy Potions. Talk to the potion lady to get the first Empty Bottle!




At the Potion Shopyou can buy potions, but you can only by the Heart Potion for now.
Talk to the man to "infuse" potions with insects from your collection, too, but again, you cannot do that
yet. Note that there is a blue Chest in the Bazaar you cannot open. This can be opened only by
finding a Goddess Cube on The Surface below the clouds. There are more of these around Skyloft,
and you cannot do anything about them now. You cannot call down Beedle's Shop either, so it's time
to leave Skyloft.

You can now run off any edge of the city and call your bird with the D-Pad. You'll notice a large, green
column of light now. When you near the green light, you will initiate a cutscene.
Sealed Grounds
Here you'll encounter Deku Babas for the first time. They are tougher than in previous Zelda games,
and invincible if you don't swing your sword just right -- horizontal or vertical depending on how the
mouth is open.




Run along the path until the cutscene occurs. After this you'll find yourself near a locked door -- you
can't go that way yet. You can also jump off the cliff. Do so and use the Sailcloth to safely land.




At the bottom, raise your sword and charge it, then slash the small pedestal with a Skyward Strike.
This will cause steam spouts to appear in the area. Run over these and your Sailcloth will lift you to a
higher level.




Fi will now tell you about Dowsing. You can sense a nearby goal by a rumbling, glowing effect when
you Dowse. Press C to activate the Dowsing menu.

In this first-person mode, the purple ring will point to the object you are searching for. Choose Zelda
and you'll see the purple ring point upwards. The jets in this area can be use to fly upwards. Just walk
over them and your Sailcloth will lift you up.
The Dowsing ability will lead you to the sealed door. You can now open it. Save at the Bird Statue
inside.

Inside the temple is a Chest with Revitalizing Potion inside -- and another Empty Bottle to store it in!
Talk to the old lady here and she will tell you about Zelda. And point you towards Faron Woods in the
east.




Open your map and place a beacon on the red X by the entrance to Faron Woods in the east. You
use C to pick up and drop the beacon. You should zoom in to place it on the X.




Leave through the eastern door.

Along the eastern path you'll encounter Bokoblins harassing a Goron. Slash the Bokoblins wherever
they aren't defending.




Talk to the Goron, Gorko, and the Bird Statue will begin to glow.Here you can not only save, but travel
to the sky!




Climb up the vines and you can push a log to make a shortcut back to the Sealed Grounds. Head
through the open gate by Gorko and you can push the log to the short cliff wall.
File:Sword 0309.png
Sword 0309.png

Climb it to enter Faron Woods.
Faron Woods
After the cutscene, dash towards the rope and you can grab it to swing across. You can cut down
grass. If a bur attaches to you, do a Sword Spin to shake it off before it detonates.

File:Sword 0309.png
Sword 0309.png




Continue down the path and kill the Bokoblins harassing a Kikwi. Save it and Fi will tell you about it.
You should follow it, obviously.




Dash up the ramp. Head north towards the giant tree. The Kikwi will hide behind mushrooms. you can
use Dowsing to track it. Slash the mushrooms it hides behind.

File:Sword 0323.png
Sword 0323.png




There is a Bomb-able Wall on the eastern side of this area, but you'll need a Bomb Bag to bomb it
and get the Heart Piece behind it. You can use your Dowsing ability to track the Kikwi. When it
retreats behind a tree, it will stop.Machi introduces itself and tells you Zelda is in hiding.
Machi is now marked on your map. Push the log off the cliff behind him to collect the Amber Relic
beneath it.




Head southeast based on the Dowsing signal. There's a Bird Statue here. Run up the slope past the
Deku Baba plant. To kill it, pick up a boulder at the top and toss it down at the plant. Climb the ledge
in the pool in the southwest corner and you can pick up another Amber Relic.




In this next area is an Oktorok (Grass). These plants pop out of the ground when you are far away to
nail you with nuts. These nuts WILL bust your shield, so beware! If you bust your shield, you'll need to
go repair a shield in Skyloft at the Scrap Shop. You can fast travel back to any purple Bird Statue
you've previously saved at once you get back on your bird. It's best to ignore these for now. To avoid
this, use nunchuk jabs to send the projectiles back at the right moment.




Run due south and you can run up a curved ramp past a Bird Statue to a rope. Cut the rope and it will
become a rope swing. Use it to reach the center of the area. The Kikwi Elder is asleep here. You can
run around him for now and drop off the western edge of his platform to get another Amber Relic.
These can be used to upgrade your Wooden Shield. Push the log off the cliff here as well to make a
short cut and reveal another Amber Relic.
Kikwi Hunt
Bucha, the Kikwi Tribe Elder, is missing some Kikwis. You will have to help find them using the
Dowsing ability.




Kikwi 1: Lopsa
Just past the elder, on his platform is a little hole. Crawl through it to a grotto within the huge tree.
Here you can scoop up a Fairy in your bottle (you'll have to empty a bottle, equip it, LOCK ON to the
fairy and press A to swipe the bottle and catch it). Climb the vines here to reach a new area.




Here is a rope you can climb across. Hold the Wii Remote up vertically to balance on your way
across. Tilt it to correct your walk. While hanging, you can Jostle the rope by shaking the Wii Remote.
This will shake the burs off of the rope.




Approach the Bokoblin on the other side and an ambush will occur. You can stock up on hearts
during the battle on the edges of the area. Use spin attacks to defeat the Bokoblins. You can whack
them from the side they are not blocking to knock them down and use a Fatal Blow too.The Kikwi us
up in the tree here. Roll into the tree to bring Lopsa down.
Use the vine to swing out of the area. Push down the log to make a path back.




The temple with the great vantage point is your next goal.

Kikwi 2: Erla
There is a small building with a good vantage point on top in the west and from here you can get a
clear view of the Kikwi. Climb the temple stairs and, but the Bird Statue, look for the nearest Kikwi.




The one in the northeast on a ledge that has some vines on the wall leading up to it. Mark it on your
map. You can climb those vines and use the Leap motion to reach the Kikwi. There is a Bombable
Wall here you can come back for later.




To wake the Kikwi, clear all the grass. Erla is accounted for, so there is one more to go.




Kikwi 3: Oolo
Crawl back through the little hole south of the temple. In the west is a ramp/tree root that leads up to a
little red brick wall and a hole in the ground (this is just above the Sealed Grounds exit). Drop through
the hole and follow the path to Kikwi, Oolo.
Heart Piece

The central tree in the northern portion of Faron Woods has many roots. One root leading up from the
south leads to a rope that you can cross to this Heart Piece.




Return to Machi.

From the Kikwi's back springs the Slingshot! You can use this to fire Deku Seeds.




A small, curled vine is above the Elder Kikwi. You can shoot this curl to bring down a vine. Sweet!
(Note: If you shoot this from his back after getting the slingshot, you can see some alternate
dialogue!)




Behind the building with the great vantage point in the far north is a ledge with another curled vine
above it. Shoot the vine down and swing into the next area.
Remember to roll into trees and cut down plants for Deku Seeds if you need ammo for your Slingshot.
Deep Woods
Defeat the Bokoblins in this first area. You can shoot down the hornet's nest or roll into the tree to the
tree to the west to bring down the hive. You may get some Hornet Larvae for your treasure collection!
If the hornets chase you, run quickly away from the hive location. They will soon dissipate.




Dowsing will lead you northward. In the next area is a rope bridge. You can cross it, but first you
should shoot down the hive above it with the Slingshot. They bees will drop into the pit below.




Cross the rope and double back on the path to push a log off a ledge and make a shortcut.




Gorko will reappear now in need of help. Keep going down hill and you can hop onto a ridge. This
takes you to another rope path. On this path, shake off the burs AND the Bokoblin when it gets near
you by waving the Wii remote while hanging.




Save at the Bird Statue at the top of the hill. Now, carefully dash out to the rope. Swing a few times to
get the momentum to reach the far side. You need to carefully swing, with back and forth motions of
the Wii Remote.

A yellow Deku Baba here can take a LOT of hits. Watch for opportunities to slash it. Grab the treasure
chest nearby, a Red Rupee is in it. Meet up with Gorko, who has found a Goddess Cube. These
cubes open treasure chests in the sky. They will be marked on your map by Fi when you return to the
sky so you can find the unlocked chests easily. Here are all the Goddess Cube and chest locations,
and what's inside as well:

Goddess Cubes

Use the Skyward Strike to open the Goddess Cube and it will disappear. Another Goddess Cube is
just down the stairs here. They open chests with a Heart Piece and an Adventure Pouch Expansion.




You may want to return to the sky now that you have the Slingshot. You can call down Beedle's Shop
in Skyloftand collect your Goddess Cube treasure to boot.




Beedle's Shop
Talk to the nearby Bird Statue to return to the sky. Fly to Skyloft and land near the Bazaar. Aim a
Slingshot pellet up at Beedle's ship, which should be near the Bazaar. Hit the bell and he'll drop a
rope. Climb the rope and you can visit the shop.




The shop has fluctuating prices, but for now you can purchase the Bug Net.
Here's what you can buy from Beedle:

     Bug Net - 50 Rupees (Catch bugs for the Bug Collection)
     Extra Wallet - 100 Rupees (Carry 300 additional Rupees)
     Life Medal - 800 Rupees (Adds a Heart Container if you have it in your Adventure Pouch)
     Adventure Pouch Upgrade - 300 Rupees (Increases Adventure Pouch slots by 1)

Buy a Bug Net and an Extra Wallet if you can. Fix your shield if it needs it and then head back to the
Forest Temple Bird Statue.
Skyview Temple
The large door of Skyview Temple is locked, but a shot from your Slingshot will open it. Look for a
pink diamond above the door. Shoot it and you will gain access to the Skyview Temple.




Run down the spiral path and cut the trees and webs from a distance (don't get caught in the webs or
you'll be susceptible to Keese attacks). If you cut through the glowing part of tree stalks you'll get a
Rupee reward. On the bottom, there's a ledge. Cut down the trees in front of it. Watch for the Deku
Baba and shoot him with the Slingshot.




Climb up and hit the switch by the Deku Baba. This will open the door below the ledge. In the room
that's now open there's an Eye Switch.




Point your sword at it and lock on. Rotate the sword in the clockwise manner a while aiming right at
the TV. Large, sweeping, circular motions will send the Eye Switch rolling, looking around in 360
degrees. It will turn red and the door below it will open.
Save at the Bird Statue. This statue will let you warp outside if you need to. There are four doors in
this room on either side.




Before doing anything, drop below and search the ground for Rupees. A pink switch is well-hidden
under here. You can nail it with a Slingshot pellet (or, if you did the dungeon in a different order you
can swim to it and hit it with your sword).

The Bokoblin in here has an axe so you'll need to watch for his attacks. Shoot the pink switch above
the northeast door, but do not enter it yet.




Another pink switch is under the bridge in the central room with the four side doors. You can find this
switch in the watery channels under the room. Run up the wall and hit the switch to open the door on
the west side of the chamber. This opens the northwest door.




Kill the green Bokoblin. A Skulltula is on a web here. Shoot the vine curls to bypass the spiders
entirely. If you need seeds, leave the room and come back and keep cutting down the white plants for
seeds. Swing across the vines to the far side. Now you can stab the web Skulltulas in the belly to
clear an easy path, or shoot them with the Slingshot and use Fatal Blows on them.
Now, go back onto the stone bridge with the webs and look around. A pink switch here can be shot
with the Slingshot. This fills the central room with water. You can now use your Slingshot to stun Deku
Babas, so killing them is easier.




Run out through the southwest door and back to the main, flooded chamber. From here you can run
up to get the Dungeon Map above the flooded room.




This map shows Zelda and all the treasure chests in the dungeon -- you do not need a compass.




Now, head through the door you opened with the pink switch into the eastern room there is a small
tunnel at the bottom of the room. Drop down to it and Look for a pink switch above the statue. When
the room fills, climb the vines to get out (there's a Dig Spot here you can return to later).




Head back to the central room. In the southeast corner of the room, use the floating log on the east
side to get onto the vines. This will get you to the southeast door up high. On the other side is a chest,
but it is behind bars.




Kill the Skulltula by whacking it sideways and then jabbing at its belly while its exposed and spinning.
Look for the pair of Eye Switches.




Stand in front of both on the light patch -- you have to have BOTH watch you. Mesmerize the eyes
with wide circular motions.




In the chest is a Small Key. Head back to the central room and use the key on the locked northern
door.




Shoot the pink switch high up on the large bottle-thing in this massive chamber as soon as you enter.
Enter the door.




Stalfos
The Stalfos holds swords in various angles. You need to swipe between the swords.His rib cage will
fall away as you attack. Keep swiping form oppurtunistic angles and you will take him out.




Inside the chest here is the Beetle. The Beetle can be use to retrieve items, cut spider webs, blow up
bombs and activate switches. You fire it and then control it remotely while it lasts -- picking up items
extends its range. Shoot the Beetle out through the hole in the wall and smash it straight into the pink
jewel that originally opened the door.




Beetle --The unexplained power contained within this insect-shaped item allows you to control it as it
flies through the air.




Back outside the central room, save at the Bird Statue and use the Beetle to explore the area. Here's
all the things you can kill and loot you can get in the room:

     You can cut down 3 crates hanging from threads of web in the area to get a red rupees. One
     has a Pink Fairy in it. Catch it with your bottle
     Cut down the Skulltulas and then use a Finishing Blow to kill them.
     Fly up into the passages above the locked door to find rupees.




     Fly up north above the barred door for a some blue rupees.
     Fly up into a dead end in the south for a Red Rupee.
     Above the locked door is a Red Rupee
     Fly up into the passage above the Bird Statue to hit a switch to open the west door.




Heart Piece

A hole at the very top of the central structure on the north side leads to a switch. Send the Beetle up
to this and hit it. This switch opens the gate on the north side of the central structure with a Heart
Piece inside!




After hitting the pink switch, enter the western door. Go down the hallway and enter the western
room. Kill the Skulltula and you'll face a trio of Eye Switches. Send the Beetle up and cut down the
box hanging above the second level. Climb up there and push the box down. Move it to the center of
the room and climb on top.




From the top of the box, all three Eye Switch eyes will watch you. Mesmerize them with your sword in
tandem and the gate will open.




Grab the Small Key. You can now open the eastern door in the central room where you got the
Beetle. However, the passage back is blocked. Use the Beetle in the connecting hallway to hit the
pink switch and fill the room with water. You can now reach the stairs. Slice the Skulltula out of the
web and kill it.
Above the eastern door in the Beetle/bottle room are several Deku Babas. Cut them down with the
Beetle and cross the rope.




In the next passage, there is a three-headed monster called a Staldra which you can only kill by
cutting off all three of its heads in one swipe. Line up your swing right when the eyes turn red and
slash every head to kill it. You can use your Wooden Shield to stun it and make this easier if you time
your counter strike for right when the Staldra attacks.




In the next room you'll come across a Skulltula hanging from a strand. Use the Beetle to cut down the
Skulltula. A gate here has a pink switch above it. Hit it with the beetle to make a shortcut back tot he
previous room.




Cross the central rope towards the Boss Door. Jostle the enemies off when they get close.




Turn left at the boss door for a red rupee in a Chest. Cross in front of the boss door and climb the
vines. Cut down a rope here and dash-jump to it. Get off on the tree platform and look for some curled
vines on the ceiling you can hit with the Slingshot.




Jump to the first vine. Reposition yourself by pressing B and turning until you line up perfectly with the
next vine. Scoot to the bottom of the vine and then swing then jump to the next vine.




Swing back and forth until you have huge momentum and you can make the jump.




You'll land right at the chest with the Golden Carving (the 'Boss Key'). Save at the Bird Statue by the
boss door in the north. If you do not have two recovery items, and a shield, do not attempt this boss
fight! Return to Skyloft to prepare if need be.




Go to the boss door and arrange the Golden Carving to look like a lower-case 'h.'




You can use two hands to do this. Insert the Golden Carving when you have it lined up.
Boss: Ghirahim
Attack Ghirahim and he will snatch your sword. Run and pick it up. When Ghirahim approaches you
with his hand raised, move your sword to lead his had away, then quickly strike him.




To make sure he doesn't grab it, wait for him to hold his hand up and come very close, and lure it to
one side. Slash from the OTHER direction then and then slash at him a bunch.




After hitting him a bit, he will change tactics and fire some small projectiles at you. These can be
smacked back at him with a perfect slice in the pattern of the projectiles. For instance, if they are in a
vertical line, slash in a vertical line. You'll want to back away from him while he lines up this attack.




He will also do a dash attack. Hold your shield out and use the nunchuk jab to repulse Ghirahim when
he runs into you. Then, swipe at him a bit. If you lose your shield, however, you'll have to use a Spin
Attack or regular swipes to hit him.




Occasionally Ghirahim will warp in close to you with his sword raised. When he does this, horizontally
slash at him.
Skyview Spring
After he takes several dozen slashes, Ghirahim will retreat. You will get a Heart Container that
extends your life permanently. Enter the open door to access the Skyview Spring.




Goddess Cube

Behind the spring by the waterfalls you can stock up on a Pink Fairy or two. Also, be sure to activate
the Goddess Cube (this opens a chest with a Gold Rupee on Pumpkin Landing) behind the shrine
with a Skyward Strike.




Now, use the Skyward Strike to hit the blue wing symbol on the shrine itself.




You'll get the Ruby Tablet, which fits in the base of the large statue in Skyloft. Return to a Bird Statue
and take it to Skyloft. The Goddess Cubes you've found now appear on your map. islands around
Skyloft. Fi will tell you all about this. Now is as good a time as any to grab the contents of these
chests. For the three you've found in Faron Woods thus far you'll get a Heart Piece, Adventure Pouch
Upgrade and Gold Rupee.
Eldin Volcano


                              A new area to the Zelda series, Eldin Volcano is home to the
Mogma and the Earth Temple.
The Pieces of Key
The Earth Temple's entrance is locked. You'll need five Pieces of Key to open it. Here are their
locations:

1) Just west of the main door in a dig spot. Inside is a Piece of Key.




2) Just east of the main door is a gilded staircase. There are some Bomb Flowers on the edge of the
slope. Use these to bomb the wall on the east side of the slope. Slide to the bombed wall and dig for
the Piece of Key.




3) One is further west of the door. Slide down a slope to the southwest of the main door and dig there
for the Piece of Key. run back up the slope to return to the door area.
4) To the northeast of the locked door is a precipice overlooking a wall of vines. You have to drop
down and scoot along a ledge to the left of the broken bridge here towards a Heart Plant. Follow this
path up and then use the ledge to jump to a higher ledge. From here, jump across to the vine wall.
Quickly move right and, if you need it, grab the Stamina Fruit. At the top, hit the button to extend the
bridge.




There's an intense-heat area here which will light you on fire -- but you need to pass through here,
despite the risk. Head in and run to the right and down the slide. You can get some goodies on this
slide, but you'll have to return to the top for the Piece of Key.




Goddess Cube

Take the left side and Aim for the left platform with a Dig Spot on it. Below this is another platform
with a Goddess Cube on it. Note that the platform on the right as you slide down has a Pink Fairy on it
in a Dig Spot.
At the bottom, you can bomb a wall to create a shortcut back to the south. Take the large geyser back
up to the top of the slide here. This time, take the right path for a landing far below. A Pink Fairy can
be found in the digs spot on the platform you come to first.




Two geysers are just off the edge of this platform. You need to time this jump perfectly. Wait for the
far geyser to spout before jumping. This will get you to the next Piece of Key in a dig spot on the
platform.




5) At the bottom of the long slide is a tunnel leading north to a cave with a sandy incline and a lava
pool.




At one end is a plug in the wall. You can toss a bomb at this plug. To do this, run up above the plug
with a bomb flower and toss it down. Now, with the lava filled in, you can toss another bomb at a
bomb-able wall. BOWL this bomb at the wall. Inside is the final Piece of Key.
Head to the dungeon entrance with the five Key Pieces and the door will open.
Earth Temple




Much of the Earth Temple in Skyward Sword is flooded with lava. Link will have to travel on top of a
floating sphere to transport himself from area to area in the temple. The boss of this temple is
Scaldera.
Lanayru Mine
Note: You should have a Banded Shield for this area, since the Iron Shield is susceptible to electric
attacks.




Goddess Cube

When you land in Lanayru there is a ridge around the area with a chest on it -- you can't get this now,
but you'll be able to get up to the ledge with an item you find later. For now you can collect a Goddess
Cube behind the platform you land on. This opens a Silver Rupee chest northwest of Skyloft. Ignore
the defunct robots for now.




You can also stock up on bombs back here. The rock piles in the area hold some rupees. Head north
and push the mine cart down the track so it falls off the ledge. Now, pull it to the far side and use it to
climb up the ledge.




The Yellow Chuchus here send out occasional electric shocks and quite annoying. Only slice them
between jolts. Larger versions of the Yellow Chuchu will swallow Bombs, detonating shortly
afterwards. Use this to conserve hearts.
In the next clearing, collect Rupees with your Beetle, then whack the crystal in the middle of the area.
This is a Timeshift Stone, and it will transform a small portion of the desert to its former lushness and
vibrancy. These are found throughout Lanayru and are used to solve all sorts of puzzles.




The LD-301 robots in the area will come to life in the presence of the Timeshift Stone. You can talk to
them before moving on. Hop in the mine cart in the area and it will take you through a door to the
north for a Red Rupee Chest.




The other mine cart track can only be used if you push the mine cart from the east into the time
bubble. Hop in it to proceed south. At the end of the mine cart track is a rare, useful Treasure, the
Ancient Flower. These only appear in the time bubbles left by Timeshift Stones.




Speaking of Timeshift Stones, there is another one in this room, but it is under a pile of rocks. Bomb
the rocks and whack it to bring the room into its own time bubble. The statue on the wall has a vessel
that a bomb fits perfectly into.




Throw a Bomb into this vessel and the statue will fall flat, allowing you to proceed to the west.
Four more of these statues lie in the sandpit to the east. This quicksand is extremely dangerous. It will
suck you in if you don't run, but running saps your Stamina Guage significantly. This means you must
run to nearby safe spots and recover to cross the quicksand.




To make a safe spot (or four), bomb the statues in the hallway. Behind one on the north side is a hole
leading to a room with a Red Rupee Chest.




The sandy hallway leads to a larger quicksand room with Electro Spumes in it. To kill Electro Spumes
quickly, just bowl a Bomb at them.




You can cross this room using the islands. Just run to the nearest island and recharge, then run to the
next to cross the void. You can return shortly for the Chest on the high platform.




Run up the hill and hang a left. The quicksand-filled passage to the west has several clumps of rocks
in it. You can bowl Bombs at the rock clumps to blow them up and reveal a Timeshift Stone in the
distance. Blowing up the rocks around it will also activate the Timeshift Stone.




This will fill the quicksand with grass and make it crossable. On your way across, pick up the Ancient
Flower. You can now make your way to the Chest in the south, which holds a Blue Bird Feather.
Even better, ANOTHER Ancient Flower can be found growing beneath the chest platform!




In the large quicksand room that's partially in the past now, there is a mine cart you can push in to the
Timeshift Stone bubble and then ride north.
Lanayru Desert
Save at the Bird Statue in the southern corner of the desert. The rocks around the mine cart track
hold a Timeshift Stone. Activate the stone to create some vines on the eastern wall. Climb the vines
to find an Ancient Flower.




Use the hand grips to scoot across further to the west and you'll find a small cave leading to a Chest
with a Goddess Plume inside. Sweet! Note that theres is an object buried in th sand here.




You'll need to return here for a Side Quest to get Fun Fun Island operational much later.




Drop down into the basin below. It is filled with Ampilus enemies -- truly formidable rolling electric
shells. You have two decent options for killing them. One is to hit the red portion of the Amplius when
it emerges from its shell at a great distance with your Slingshot. This will stun it, allowing you to get in
close and stab it to death. Another method is to repulse its charging attack with your shield. You will
have to time your nunchuk jab perfectly to stun it -- and, of course, do NOT attempt this with the Iron
Shield.




Also in this area you'll occasionally spot the incredibly helpful Tumbleweed. You can pick these up
with your Bug Net -- they are a useful Treasure for upgrades. A Chest on one of the walls to the north
contains a Tumbleweed as well. You cannot get the Goddess Cube here now, so focus on the two
cages by the wall here.




You can use the position on the wall by the Chest to get on one of the cages. From here you can toss
bombs into a cage and expose a Timeshift Stone.




Toss another bomb in to activate it. This will create a lush bubble around the cages, exposing two
Technoblins. These enemies have electrical prods, which you don't want to make contact with. A
counter from your shield should help make them vulnerable to attacks. Alternately, a Slingshot pellet
can stun them.




Once you kill all of the Technoblins, talk to the robot in the cage and he'll give you the Hook Beetle.
This very awesome upgrade to the Beetle allows it to pick up items and drop them. You can pick up
Bombs now, which is a very useful technique for killing enemies.




For now, check out the quicksand regions to the west. You should identify the sculptures with bomb
vessels in them lining the sand. To get bombs into the baskets these statues hold you will need to use
the Hook Beetle. Send it towards the tops of the trees nearby with Bomb Plants growing atop their dry
branches. Grab the Bomb by flying into it, then head for one of the statues.
Hit Z on the nunchuck to switch angles while flying an you can easily drop bombs into the baskets.
Use this technique to make a path across the quicksand.




In the next area you can swipe a Bomb Plant with the Hook Beetle and ram it into the giant, annoying
birds called Hroks.




Goddess Cube

The Ampilus shells can be used as stepping stones in the southeast sea of sand. Use the Hook
Beetle to hit them with bombs -- but stay far away. They are only useful as stepping stones if they are
in their starting positions.




You should be able to barely make it to each Ampilus shell. Use this technique to reach the Goddess
Cube on the southern side of the area. This opens a chest south of Skyloft with a Heart Medal inside.
Cross the sand sea and save at the Bird Statue. You can back track along the ridge here to push a
mine cart into a convenient position for a shortcut.




The next sand sea has a current that will carry the Ampilus shells -- with you on them. Nail the
creatures with Hook Beetle Bombs and you can ride the shell to the distant islands. Once again, you
can back track along the perimeter of the level to get to a mine cart that can be pushed into a shortcut
position.




Enter the eastern door to get to the Temple of Time.

Temple of Time (Exterior)
Save at the Desert Gorge Bird Statue. Look for a Timeshift Stone atop a rocky point to the north. You
can hit this with the Hook Beetle to create a bridge across the gorge. Use the Beetle to chop down
any Deku Babas in the way and then kill the Technoblin on the middle platform.




You can collect an Ancient Flower here, and another Ancient Flower on a platform tot he east -- just
send your Beetle to retrieve it!
Now, send the Hook Beetle inside the volcano-like cone to the west and hit the pink switch to open
the gate inside.




Send the Hook Beetle to the very top of the cone with a Bomb and drop it straight down (hold Z and
then press A) the cone to hit a Timeshift Stone. Now you can use the mine cart to cross to the far
west. Watch out for a Deku Baba on the ceiling of the volcano cone.




Your old pal Gorko is on the other side by the collapsed entrance to the Temple of Time. Talk to him
and then use the Hook Beetle to carry bombs up to the tops of the spires with rock clumps on them to
the north.




Under one of these is a Timeshift Stone. Activate it and you'll see a robot in the path of a mine cart.
You'll have to kill the Technoblins in the area to move the robot.




The robot will not only move, but also "upgrade" your map to show past structures in the area to the
east. This helps immensely, because it shows the structures obscured by sand you can safely walk
on without sinking!




Goddess Cube

Push or ride the mine cart to the edge of the Timeshift Stone's effect. Another Stone is across the
gorge. Activate this with the Hook Beetle and get in the mine cart. Charge a Skyward Strike and hit
the Goddess Cube as the mine cart passes it. You don't want to miss this one, either, since a Heart
Piece is inside the chest it opens on Beedle's Island in the northeast of the sky.




Before leaving through the area's northeastern door, send the Beetle up to the Timeshift Stone above
the area to create a small green platform to the south. Send the Beetle here to pick up the Ancient
Flower.
The Generator
Back in the Lanayru Desert central area, examine your map and walk out onto the sand in an area
that shows a submerged wall (dark grey lines). Fi should contact you and tell you about the
submerged structure and also upgrade your map so you can add more waypoints.




To traverse this area safely, put waypoints at corner of the submerged structure and place them along
the structures lines. Follow the glowing blue spots to cross the desert easily. Get on the exposed wall
in the east and run around to the north to save at the Bird Statue.




Near the Bird Statue is a Timeshift Stone under a pile of rocks. Hit it to activate a time bubble that
envelopes the Generator in the center of the area. A robot next to it will give you the low down: there
are three Power Nodes that must be activated nearby to get the generator going. You can Dowse to
find them.




Just below the robot is an Ancient Flower. You can grab this on the way to the first Power Node.




Power Node 1
Make your way west first Dowsing to find a row of statues along a wall. If you bomb the middle one
(use the Hook Beetle to drop a Bomb Plant on it) you can expose the first Power Node.




To activate the Power Node, stick your sword into it by using a stabbing motion. Rotate the Wii
Remote to the left to turn the Power Node's dial and activate it. A symbol will now appear on your
map.




Power Node 2
This Power Node is in a cave near the Bird Statue in the center of the area. Look for a crack on the
wall to the north and use a Bomb to reveal the entrance to an ancient warehouse.




Do not even attempt to cross the sand here. The Ampilus enemies here are hard to pass. Instead, roll
a Bomb out to the middle pile of rocks. This will reveal a Timeshift Stone. Hit this and the sand will be
removed from the area.




Additionally, Technoblins will be running around the floor below, and the Ampilus will be reduced to
[[Ampilus Egg]s. These can be carried with your Hook Beetle safely. For now, work on clearing out
the Technoblins and gathering up the two Rupee Chests along the west side of the floor. Remember
to use your Slingshot to stun the Technoblins.
In the far north of the room is a foot switch that opens a small panel you can put an Ampilus Egg in.
This will open the back door.




Inside you'll find Power Node 2. Stab it and turn the crank counterclockwise. With this Node activated,
don't leave the back room just yet -- there's a Chest up above!




Send the Hook Beetle out to the Timeshift Stone and hit it and the room will fill with sand. It will kill
you, but it will also deposit you on a ledge above. Open the Chest for a Gold Skull.




Use the Beetle to hit the Timeshift Stone again and you can leave the small room. Cross the room
and leave the warehouse.



Power Node 3
To get to Power Node 3 you'll have to use your map markers effectively. The pattern of ancient walls
form three concentric rings around a central sand pit. As you work your way east from the Bird Statue
by Node 2, mark a path on the middle ring so you can cross it. You'll need the Claw Shot to get the
Goddess Cube in the north, so return later.
The eastern desert has a switch that will open a shortcut back to the starting area in the south. Before
heading in the door by the Bird Statue, look for the Sand Cicada on the rear side of the structure.




Sneak up on it and snatch it with the Bug Net -- this is a rare bug you can always catch here. The
Gerudo Dragonfly can be found nearby, too, and the Lanayru Ant is in dig spots near the Sand
Cicada location. Finally, an Amber Relic can be found atop the building. Collect it with the Beetle.




Inside the building is another sandy warehouse filled with Ampilus enemies. Bowl a bomb into the
nearest one and make your way out onto the safe spots in the sand. Once again the central clump of
rocks hides a Timeshift Stone. Blow it up, but don't activate the stone.




You need to get to the far side of the sand flow, and since there's a current, you can ride an Ampilus
shell across. The trick is to kill the Ampilus on the far side of the Timeshift Stone while it's both nearby
and in a position to flow to the far side. Keep your distance so it doesn't notice you and try to use a
Bomb to disable it. If you stand by the stone, you may be able to hit with with your sword if it rolls at
you and gets stunned. A very slow way to kill it is to send charged Skyward Strikes at it.
Get on the shell and take it to the far side. Climb up on the boxes along the western wall and run back
to the south. Open the Chest for some Eldin Ore. Push the box next to the chest off the edge of the
crate pile to make a path up, then hit the Timeshift Stone to drain the sand.




You can now explore the ground level, killing Technoblins with your Slingshot and sword and
collecting the two minor Rupee chests.




Here you'll find Ampilus Eggs. Use the Beetle to carry it to the far side of the vast abyss and drop it
near the little receptacle that powers the locked door, just like you did for Node 2.




Climb up on the western crates and cross the area. Here you can stand on the foot switch and shove
the Egg into the receptacle to power the door.




On the other side of the locked door is a Chest with a Monster Horn inside and another with a Blue
Rupee.
Stab your sword into the Power Node and crank it to the left. You should now have three marks on
your map, one symbol for each Power Node.




It is time to return to the Generator in the center of the northern region of the desert. Hit the Timeshift
Stone and approach it. Note that you can sit on the stool to the left of the Generator to recover your
hearts.




With 3 Power Nodes running, you can now solve the puzzle of the Generator. The key is the symbols
on the map in the Power Node locations. You need to turn the crank to the blue, yellow and orange
symbols match their positions on the map. The layout is similar to a clock, so here are the correct
positions:

      Blue (Water) - 9 O'Clock
      Orange (Fire) - 4 O'Clock
      Yellow (Bolt) - 12 O'Clock




With the symbols in these positions, the Lanayru Mining Facility will rise out of the desert. Note that
this structure makes a shortcut back to all the other parts of the desert. Climb the northern stairs to
find the entrance to the Mine.
Lanayru Mining Facility
This dungeon walkthrough will be published on the game's release date due to embargo
restrictions.




The Lanayru Mining Facility is the third dungeon of Skyward Sword. It is located in the Lanayru
Desert. Gameplay at this location involves use of items known as Timeshift Stones to manipulate
time, changing the environment. The boss of this dungeon is Moldarach.
Skyview Temple
The large door of Skyview Temple is locked, but a shot from your Slingshot will open it. Look for a
pink diamond above the door. Shoot it and you will gain access to the Skyview Temple.




Run down the spiral path and cut the trees and webs from a distance (don't get caught in the webs or
you'll be susceptible to Keese attacks). If you cut through the glowing part of tree stalks you'll get a
Rupee reward. On the bottom, there's a ledge. Cut down the trees in front of it. Watch for the Deku
Baba and shoot him with the Slingshot.




Climb up and hit the switch by the Deku Baba. This will open the door below the ledge. In the room
that's now open there's an Eye Switch.




Point your sword at it and lock on. Rotate the sword in the clockwise manner a while aiming right at
the TV. Large, sweeping, circular motions will send the Eye Switch rolling, looking around in 360
degrees. It will turn red and the door below it will open.
Save at the Bird Statue. This statue will let you warp outside if you need to. There are four doors in
this room on either side.




Before doing anything, drop below and search the ground for Rupees. A pink switch is well-hidden
under here. You can nail it with a Slingshot pellet (or, if you did the dungeon in a different order you
can swim to it and hit it with your sword).

The Bokoblin in here has an axe so you'll need to watch for his attacks. Shoot the pink switch above
the northeast door, but do not enter it yet.




Another pink switch is under the bridge in the central room with the four side doors. You can find this
switch in the watery channels under the room. Run up the wall and hit the switch to open the door on
the west side of the chamber. This opens the northwest door.




Kill the green Bokoblin. A Skulltula is on a web here. Shoot the vine curls to bypass the spiders
entirely. If you need seeds, leave the room and come back and keep cutting down the white plants for
seeds. Swing across the vines to the far side. Now you can stab the web Skulltulas in the belly to
clear an easy path, or shoot them with the Slingshot and use Fatal Blows on them.
Now, go back onto the stone bridge with the webs and look around. A pink switch here can be shot
with the Slingshot. This fills the central room with water. You can now use your Slingshot to stun Deku
Babas, so killing them is easier.




Run out through the southwest door and back to the main, flooded chamber. From here you can run
up to get the Dungeon Map above the flooded room.




This map shows Zelda and all the treasure chests in the dungeon -- you do not need a compass.




Now, head through the door you opened with the pink switch into the eastern room there is a small
tunnel at the bottom of the room. Drop down to it and Look for a pink switch above the statue. When
the room fills, climb the vines to get out (there's a Dig Spot here you can return to later).




Head back to the central room. In the southeast corner of the room, use the floating log on the east
side to get onto the vines. This will get you to the southeast door up high. On the other side is a chest,
but it is behind bars.




Kill the Skulltula by whacking it sideways and then jabbing at its belly while its exposed and spinning.
Look for the pair of Eye Switches.




Stand in front of both on the light patch -- you have to have BOTH watch you. Mesmerize the eyes
with wide circular motions.




In the chest is a Small Key. Head back to the central room and use the key on the locked northern
door.




Shoot the pink switch high up on the large bottle-thing in this massive chamber as soon as you enter.
Enter the door.




Stalfos
The Stalfos holds swords in various angles. You need to swipe between the swords.His rib cage will
fall away as you attack. Keep swiping form oppurtunistic angles and you will take him out.




Inside the chest here is the Beetle. The Beetle can be use to retrieve items, cut spider webs, blow up
bombs and activate switches. You fire it and then control it remotely while it lasts -- picking up items
extends its range. Shoot the Beetle out through the hole in the wall and smash it straight into the pink
jewel that originally opened the door.




Beetle --The unexplained power contained within this insect-shaped item allows you to control it as it
flies through the air.




Back outside the central room, save at the Bird Statue and use the Beetle to explore the area. Here's
all the things you can kill and loot you can get in the room:

     You can cut down 3 crates hanging from threads of web in the area to get a red rupees. One
     has a Pink Fairy in it. Catch it with your bottle
     Cut down the Skulltulas and then use a Finishing Blow to kill them.
     Fly up into the passages above the locked door to find rupees.




     Fly up north above the barred door for a some blue rupees.
     Fly up into a dead end in the south for a Red Rupee.
     Above the locked door is a Red Rupee
     Fly up into the passage above the Bird Statue to hit a switch to open the west door.




Heart Piece

A hole at the very top of the central structure on the north side leads to a switch. Send the Beetle up
to this and hit it. This switch opens the gate on the north side of the central structure with a Heart
Piece inside!




After hitting the pink switch, enter the western door. Go down the hallway and enter the western
room. Kill the Skulltula and you'll face a trio of Eye Switches. Send the Beetle up and cut down the
box hanging above the second level. Climb up there and push the box down. Move it to the center of
the room and climb on top.




From the top of the box, all three Eye Switch eyes will watch you. Mesmerize them with your sword in
tandem and the gate will open.




Grab the Small Key. You can now open the eastern door in the central room where you got the
Beetle. However, the passage back is blocked. Use the Beetle in the connecting hallway to hit the
pink switch and fill the room with water. You can now reach the stairs. Slice the Skulltula out of the
web and kill it.
Above the eastern door in the Beetle/bottle room are several Deku Babas. Cut them down with the
Beetle and cross the rope.




In the next passage, there is a three-headed monster called a Staldra which you can only kill by
cutting off all three of its heads in one swipe. Line up your swing right when the eyes turn red and
slash every head to kill it. You can use your Wooden Shield to stun it and make this easier if you time
your counter strike for right when the Staldra attacks.




In the next room you'll come across a Skulltula hanging from a strand. Use the Beetle to cut down the
Skulltula. A gate here has a pink switch above it. Hit it with the beetle to make a shortcut back tot he
previous room.




Cross the central rope towards the Boss Door. Jostle the enemies off when they get close.




Turn left at the boss door for a red rupee in a Chest. Cross in front of the boss door and climb the
vines. Cut down a rope here and dash-jump to it. Get off on the tree platform and look for some curled
vines on the ceiling you can hit with the Slingshot.




Jump to the first vine. Reposition yourself by pressing B and turning until you line up perfectly with the
next vine. Scoot to the bottom of the vine and then swing then jump to the next vine.




Swing back and forth until you have huge momentum and you can make the jump.




You'll land right at the chest with the Golden Carving (the 'Boss Key'). Save at the Bird Statue by the
boss door in the north. If you do not have two recovery items, and a shield, do not attempt this boss
fight! Return to Skyloft to prepare if need be.




Go to the boss door and arrange the Golden Carving to look like a lower-case 'h.'




You can use two hands to do this. Insert the Golden Carving when you have it lined up.
Boss: Ghirahim
Attack Ghirahim and he will snatch your sword. Run and pick it up. When Ghirahim approaches you
with his hand raised, move your sword to lead his had away, then quickly strike him.




To make sure he doesn't grab it, wait for him to hold his hand up and come very close, and lure it to
one side. Slash from the OTHER direction then and then slash at him a bunch.




After hitting him a bit, he will change tactics and fire some small projectiles at you. These can be
smacked back at him with a perfect slice in the pattern of the projectiles. For instance, if they are in a
vertical line, slash in a vertical line. You'll want to back away from him while he lines up this attack.




He will also do a dash attack. Hold your shield out and use the nunchuk jab to repulse Ghirahim when
he runs into you. Then, swipe at him a bit. If you lose your shield, however, you'll have to use a Spin
Attack or regular swipes to hit him.




Occasionally Ghirahim will warp in close to you with his sword raised. When he does this, horizontally
slash at him.
Skyview Spring
After he takes several dozen slashes, Ghirahim will retreat. You will get a Heart Container that
extends your life permanently. Enter the open door to access the Skyview Spring.




Goddess Cube

Behind the spring by the waterfalls you can stock up on a Pink Fairy or two. Also, be sure to activate
the Goddess Cube (this opens a chest with a Gold Rupee on Pumpkin Landing) behind the shrine
with a Skyward Strike.




Now, use the Skyward Strike to hit the blue wing symbol on the shrine itself.




You'll get the Ruby Tablet, which fits in the base of the large statue in Skyloft. Return to a Bird Statue
and take it to Skyloft. The Goddess Cubes you've found now appear on your map. islands around
Skyloft. Fi will tell you all about this. Now is as good a time as any to grab the contents of these
chests. For the three you've found in Faron Woods thus far you'll get a Heart Piece, Adventure Pouch
Upgrade and Gold Rupee.

warning sign on it. Run and then roll into this a few times by shaking the nunchuk to bring down the
Heart Piece.




Talk to the furious owner and he will put you to work. You can only do the jobs he offers you
occasionally, so you’ll have to do one, then return later.




Job 1

You’ll need an Empty Bottle for this. Deliver Hot Pumpkin Soup to Knight Commander Eagus. The
Commander is in the Sparring Hall behind the Knight Academy in Skyloft. Fly there and give him the
soup in less than 5 minutes and then return to the Lumpy Pumpkin to finish the mini-quest.




Job 2

Kina in the pumpkin patch. She’ll have you carry a stack of pumpkins to the shed. The controls to
balance the pumpkins are difficult unless you take the visual cues from the pumpkins. The key is to
press in the direction you want to go until the pumpkins get off kilter, then TAP the analog stick back
towards the other direction to balance them. You don’t want to MOVE the other way, since you want
to keep on your path. By moving and tapping to correct, you can get to the shed.

Lost Child
After you place the Ruby Tablet in the Statue of the Goddess from Skyview Temple, a lady will accost
you as you leave about her lost daughter Kukiel.




Head for the graveyard and talk to the woman nearby and she’ll point you to the Lumpy Pumpkin in
on Pumpkin Landing, where an old man has been raving about monsters in the graveyard. Head here

Fun Fun Island




                                  On top of this floating island in the sky, Link has the chance to pay
20 rupees to play a fun skydiving mini-game in which he could earn more rupees. While in the air Link
must position himself to land on a spinning floor, where the colored areas represent the rupee amount
he will receive. The more rings Link dives through the higher the multiplier will be for the result.
Fixing Fun Fun Island
When you talk to the owner of Fun Fun Island he will tell you about a missing piece of the island, the
Game Wheel.Your Dowsing ability can help track down the Wheel.




It can be found in Lanayru Desert, near the southernmost Bird Statue in the desert proper. From here,
hit the Timeshift Stone and climb the vines that appear. Work your way east by hanging from the wall
and you'll find the Wheel in the sand. Your robot can bring it to the sky and the owner of Fun Fun
Island will reward you with 5 Gratitude Crystals.
Bamboo Island




                                   On this small island near Skyloft, Link can participate in the Clean
Cut Challenge mini-game. This mini-game costs 10 rupees to play and requires Link to use his sword
to cut down a very tall piece of bamboo into as many pieces as possible.
You'll get a reward for slices above 20 that is usually something good, like Evil Ore or a Monster
Horn. However, if you get to 28, you'll get the grand prize -- a Goddess Plume.

This place is a good way to make money easily at the start of the game. If you get 15 to 19 strikes on
the bamboo you will be rewarded with 30 rupees. That's a quick 20 rupee profit that can be repeated
continuously.

Clean Cut Challenge Strategy
You don't need a special sword to get 28 slices, just a steady, quick hand. You want to slice as close
to horizontal as possible to keep the bamboo from sliding off center and to keep from cutting large
chunks.

Other Bamboo Island Notes

There is a Goddess Cube chest on the reverse side of Bamboo Island. A Cube in Eldin Volcano
opens it.

will increase Link's health by one heart.




You'll find the locations for every Piece of Heart, cataloged by area, below:

Faron Woods
1The central tree in the northern portion of Faron Woods has many roots. One root leading up from
the south leads to a rope that you can cross to this Heart Piece.

Skyward Sword, Keeses have a very strange pattern of movement. They are also small creatures,
making them difficult to fight. A Keese can take damage from your sword as well as ranged weapons
like the slingshot and bow. Another variety of the Keese, known as Fire Keese, also inhabits the
world. This fiery "breed" behaves about the same as its bretheren. However, be sure to not let it near
your wooden shield as to avoid fire damage.

attackers, flying circles around the player until their back is turned. At which point, they will swoop
down and either strike the player, or literally poop on their heads.

Any long range attack will work (Skyward Slashes tend to miss), or a sword slice if you catch them
while they're attacking.
Bokoblin




Bokoblins are enemies in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. to defeat a bokoblin, you must strike
it where it isn't defending itself. Bokoblins use a veriety of weapons such as cleavers, clubs, and
bows. There are many different variations of the bokoblin. Some can even call upon other bokoblins
for back-up. The only way to stop them is by taking out their ring-leader. Some of these Boss
Bokoblin are situated on a watchtower. Bombs are espiecially useful in taking out those watchtowers.
Cursed Bokoblin
Archer Bokoblin




These Bokoblins are skilled at handling a bow. You'll find many in high places shooting down. There
are many ways to take them down, such as fighting fire with fire and using a Bow, or perhaps a
Slingshot. Throwing a bomb will do the trick as well.
Octorok




Octoroks are octopus like enemies that can be found in both land and sky trying to deter Link in his
journey. Octoroks attack by shooting projectiles from their mouths. Ironically, a well timed Shield bash
will send the rock spit out of their mouths back at them. On land octoroks have little shrubs growing
out of their heads that allows them to hide. In the sky octoroks can be found on floating pieces of land
shooting at Link while he's riding his Loftwing.

How to Kill
You can use the shield to knock back the Octorok's pellets. You must shake the nunchuk at the
moment of contact to send the pellet back at the creature or else risk taking shield damage.

A vertical swipe of your sword will also send their pellets flying back at them.

Types of Octorok

Octorok (Grass)

Found in Faron Woods.

spears to jab at Link. also wield a wooden shield.

giants up for an attack. Keep an eye out every once in a while for their spear-jabs.
Walltula




Walltula are as the name implies, mostly found on walls and other surfaces especially if there are
vines around. Walltulas love to stand in Link's way.



How to Kill

Skyward Strike, once Z-targeted, works as well if you're trying to save ammo.

method of attack involve covering itself in electricity, coiling itself up and rolling at Link.



How to Kill

it's shell attack it.

at Link. Lava spit by them can be cut with Link's sword to prevent damage, or to defend with your
Shield. Careful with Wooden Shields as they will take damage or break from fire or lava damage.

Chuchu




Chuchus are enemies found in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. A Chuchu is a gel-like
creature that can divide if it's sliced. Chuchus will combine into one again if it splits into too many
parts. If a chuchu gets close enough it'll trap you with it's gelatinous body. shake both the Wiimote
and Nunchuck simultaneously break free of it's grasp.




How to Kill
The trick is to slice it with your sword fast enough so it doesn't have time to duplicate further, or
reassemble again. Slicing horizontally will only result in the two separated Chu's falling back into a
larger one again.
Silent Realm Guardian




These guardians are the protectors of the silent realm that appear in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward
Sword. Guardians become active whenever you fail to collect one of the tears of light within 90
seconds. There is no way to defend your self against guardians because in order to enter the silent
realm all items must be left behind. These enemies also become aware of your presence if you step
in 'waking water' and other enemies that act as sentinels (Sentry Sentinels) Guardians can kill you in
one shot so your only options are to either run and hide,or find a tear which will deactivate them.
Sentry Sentinel

fck_mw_right" />

silent realm. Sentinels will alert <a _fcknotitle="true" href="Silent Realm Guardians">Silent Realm
Guardians</a> of your presence if you step near thier lamp-light. These enemies are always on the
look-out for intruders, and are not affected by the tears of light so they are always roaming the silent
realm. If you happen to spot one, avoid it.

the Zelda series, they make appearances in games such as Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Ocarina
of Time, and Twilight Princess

which inhabit the Eldin Volcano area and have one antenna. Pyrups are known to hide under rocks or
inside walls. A recent game play video was shown of a pyrup retreating into a hole and spewing a line
of fire that blocked Link's path. In order to get through Link had to roll a bomb into the hole to defeat
the pyrup.

face up due to the hard layer on it However, Flipping it with your sword will reveal it's weakness. A
purple spot where if it takes damage it'll die. Skulltulas are very cleaver at hiding themselves. You

unsuspecting victims. Skulltulas will also try to trap you by shooting threads of webs at you. Shake it
off before it's too late!



How to Kill
Skulltulas cannot be hit while upright, instead flip them with your sword and attack them at the purple
spot on under their abdomen. if a Skulltula falls down on the floor, a good option is to do a Fatal blow
to end things quickly.
Tech-Bokoblin




Bokoblins that are found in the Lanaryu region. Tech- Bokoblins fight with long lost technology making
a fight with them a bit tougher than a normal Bokoblin. Like a fight with any run-of-the-mill Bokoblin

electricity clashing with them will cause you to be electocuted, so use caution.
Sand Toadpoli

Sand Toadpoli are a kind of Toadpoli that lives in the Lanaryu Desert. Sand toadpoli burrow out of
the sand to attack. The ground they lie in isn't safe for Link to step on, but that doesn't mean you can't
kill them. A good bomb throwing will put them in their place. Just about any long-ranged weapon will
work in fact. These Toadpoli also spit gobules of electricity as opposed to fire, so beware using your
Iron Shield.

of different sections all stacked one on top of the other. On the top it has a single socket in which if
something catches it's line of sight, it proceeds to fire a beam. Shields are able to guard against the
laser shot by a Beamos.

done.

players who are too close.

To defeat an Armos, Use the Gust Bellows to make the propeller on top of their heads spin causing
them to open vertically, exposing two gems. One gem can be slashed, the other must be stabbed.

gaining access to the second gem easier.

Link




Like all Zelda games, Link is the main protagonist in Skyward Sword. At some point soon after Zelda's
disappearance, he once again dons his signature green tunic and pointed hat. It is not known if this
Link possesses the Triforce of Courage as Ganondorf has not yet caused the relic to split.

Link grows up in a city on the clouds known as Skyloft. He trains there as a student in the Skyloft
Knight Academy, finally giving a history for the legacy of future Links' naturally gifted fighting abilities.
He goes to school with his childhood friend Zelda and has a special bird that allows him to journey
through the clouds to Hyrule below.

As in Twilight Princess, Link is once again right-handed because Skyward Sword uses Wii Motion
Plus for 1:1 sword motion. Several screenshots and trailers have already confirmed that Link will have
several different upgradeable swords, shields, and other items to aid in his quest.
Gaepora




Headmaster Gaepora is in charge of Skyloft's
Academy and is Zelda's father. He is the descendant of school masters that go back countless generations.




Location

Gaepora lives in Skyloft.
Appearances in Other Games

Ghirahim




Also known as: Lord Ghirahim, Demon Lord Ghirahim

Ghirahim is the main antagonist for the majority of Zelda: Skyward Sword. His attempt to kidnap
Zelda by conjuring a tornado sets the story in motion. He claims to be the ruler of the surface. He
wants to use Zelda to resurrect an ancient demon, Demise.

It is possible that Ghrahim was present during the conflict that caused the Goddess to create Skyloft.
The opening cinematic features two silhouettes bearing a striking resemblance to his hair, eyes,
smile, and high-collared cape. If this figure is indeed Ghirahim, he has been alive for generations.

Stylistically inspired by Japanese anime, Ghirahim has a much more composed and slick manner of
being than Ganon, Link's usual antagonist. He bears a striking resemblance to Vaati from The Minish
Cap. He also has markings on his attire that are startlingly similar to those found on the Gilded Sword
from Majora's Mask.

When asked if Ghirahim reminded him of David Bowie, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma agreed
that there were similarities; to contrast with Ganon, he was given a "unisex-like, genderless feel."

Zelda




In Skyward Sword, Zelda is Link's childhood friend and schoolmate. While it is not known if she is a
princess at the beginning of the story, she is central to Ghirahim's endgame. After failing to kidnap her
by conjuring a tornado, Ghirahim refers to her as "her holiness", and she is in possession of the
Zelda's design this time around was meant to make her look more down-to-earth and relatable. It has
been confirmed that Zelda is a romantic interest for Link in Skyward Sword.

Zelda plays the Goddess Harp at the ceremony following the race.
Fi




Link's companion in The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword. Fi is a female spirit that inhabits Link's
sword and guides him through his adventure. Fi seems to be an artifical construct -- she shows no
outward sign of emotion and is proficient at probability and other calculations. She was created before
people left the surface for the sky, and states that her purpose is to help Link and Zelda fulfill their
destiny.

Fi's Prophecy
The oral tradition, Fi tells Gaepora, "is one of the least reliable methods of information retention and
transmission." Here is the prophecy she has preserved regarding Link and Zelda.

The Youth who draws forth the guiding sword shall be known as the goddess's chosen hero, and it is
he who possesses an unbreakable spirit.

He shall be burdened with the task of abolishing the shadow of apocalypse from the land. Such is his
destiny.

With the spirit of the blade at his side, he shall soar over the clouds and plummet below...

And united with the spirit maiden, shall bring forth the piercing light that resurrects the land.

arms are left covering it's chest protecting the heart. You will have to avoid the smashes, and then
target the screws that are attached to it's arms and take them apart with your newly acquired Whip.
Once four out of the six arms are detached, it will reveal the heart which will be available for you
stabbing pleasure, rinse and repeat this process.

In phase two of this fight the same concept is held, except Koloktos will sprout up from the ground
and chase you down, and instead of two axes he now will wield six sabers. Again, you'll have to
unscrew his arms but once an arm is unscrewed Link will have the ability to pick up one the giant

the sand to attack. The ground they lie in isn't safe for Link to step on, but that doesn't mean you can't

them to open vertically, exposing two gems. One gem can be slashed, the other must be stabbed.
Using the Gust Bellows on the main body while it is stunned will cause it to turn around, making
gaining access to the second gem easier.

Thrill Digger
Thrill Digger is a game in Eldin Volcano run by Tubert. It is located in the northwestern portion of the
main Volcano area in a small Bokoblin town. You must bomb a wall behind a hut to reach it.

This game has a Beginner, Intermediate and Expert mode which all have different entry prices -- and
better prizes for each. Green, Red, Blue, Silver and GOLD Rupees are buried in the ground and you
must dig them up without hitting a bomb. Like Minsesweeper, this game places bombs around higher-
value Rupees. If you run along the back wall, you can talk to Ledd in a Dig Spot and he'll give you
some great hints (for 20 Rupees). Here are the hints he gives you:

     Green Rupee - No bad holes around them
     Blue Rupee - One or two bad holes around them
     Red Rupee - Three or four bad holes around them
     Silver Rupee - Five or six bad holes around them
     Gold Rupee - Seven or eight bad holes around them

There is Rupee Ore lining the walls of this room. Shoot it with the Slingshot to make Rupees (or
Rupoors, beware!) pop out.

Bamboo Island




                                   On this small island near Skyloft, Link can participate in the Clean
Cut Challenge mini-game. This mini-game costs 10 rupees to play and requires Link to use his sword
to cut down a very tall piece of bamboo into as many pieces as possible.
You'll get a reward for slices above 20 that is usually something good, like Evil Ore or a Monster
Horn. However, if you get to 28, you'll get the grand prize -- a Goddess Plume.

This place is a good way to make money easily at the start of the game. If you get 15 to 19 strikes on
the bamboo you will be rewarded with 30 rupees. That's a quick 20 rupee profit that can be repeated
continuously.

Clean Cut Challenge Strategy
You don't need a special sword to get 28 slices, just a steady, quick hand. You want to slice as close
to horizontal as possible to keep the bamboo from sliding off center and to keep from cutting large
chunks.

Other Bamboo Island Notes

There is a Goddess Cube chest on the reverse side of Bamboo Island. A Cube in Eldin Volcano
opens it.
Loftwings
Loftwings are large birds that serve as the transportation vehicles for the inhabitants of Skyloft.

Silent Realm Guardian




These guardians are the protectors of the silent realm that appear in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward
Sword. Guardians become active whenever you fail to collect one of the tears of light within 90
seconds. There is no way to defend your self against guardians because in order to enter the silent
realm all items must be left behind. These enemies also become aware of your presence if you step
in 'waking water' and other enemies that act as sentinels (Sentry Sentinels) Guardians can kill you in
one shot so your only options are to either run and hide,or find a tear which will deactivate them.
Sword Techniques
Below are a variety moves available during combat in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.




Spin Attack




                                 Spin Attack is a move in which Link swings his sword rapidly 360
degrees, slicing anything around him. The Spin Attack move is executed by swinging both the
Wiimote and nunchuck to either the left, or right side simultaneously. Takes away about 1/4 of the
Stamina Meter.
Front-Flip Slash
Fornt-Flip Slash Is a move in which Link does a front-flip while doing a powerful Downward slash. It
is done by taking the Wiimote and Nunchuck and shake them downward. Takes about 1/4 of the
Stamina Meter.

Back-Flip Slash
Back-Flip Slash Is a move which Link Does a Back-Flip While doing a Powerful forward Slash. To do
the move you'll simply have to shake the Wiimote and Nunchuck Upwards. Takes about 1/4 of the
Stamina Meter.

Fatal Blow
The Fatal Blow Is a finishing move that can be done if an enemy is on it's back. With this technique
Link jumps and hurls his Sword on his fallen opponent. The fatal blow is done by flicking both the
Wiimote and Nunchuck Downwards while an enemy is laying on the floor. Fatal blows do not take
anything away from the stamina meter, but your are left open while doing the move so use it with
discretion.

Skyward Charge
                                    A charging move in which the sword is held up and accumulates
energy and is swung down, expelling a slash of energy. Skyward Charge is done by holding the
Wiimote up for a brief period of time. Afterwards, you whip the Wiimote down.
Dowsing
Dowsing is a technique which takes advantage of the Goddess Sword's peculiar properties. By
holding the sword (in first-person view), you can use the symbol in the center of the screen to find a
person, place or object.




The arrow shows which direction an object is, and a beeping sound indicates how near you are.
Dowsing can be used to find hearts when you are low on life once Fi activates the function. Dowsing
is also necessary to advance in the game in some areas.
