Beedle's Missing Beetle

Vincent Lau

(1 of 2) Head for Bug Rock inside the Thunderhead.

Head for Bug Rock inside the Thunderhead. (left), Talk to Strich to learn about his mini-game, but don't play it (unless you want to). (right)

To start off the chain of events, travel to Skyloft and speak with Parrow in the plaza near the Light Tower. He’ll mention that Strich found an island inside the Thunderhead that could serve as a bug paradise.

Fly to the Thunderhead and go inside. Head towards the southwestern portion, to the large island with the crumbling tower: Bug Rock. Speak with Strich there to learn about the Bug Heaven mini-game (you can play it if you want, but that’s not part of this).

(1 of 2) Sleep inside Beedle's Airshop until night.

Sleep inside Beedle's Airshop until night. (left), Offer to help search for Beedle's beetle. (right)

Return to Skyloft and enter Beedle’s Airshop. Sleep in his bed until night to awaken on Beedle’s Island. Speak with Beedle outside to learn that his rare Horned Colossus Beetle is missing. Tell him you’ll find it for him. Go back into the shop and sleep until morning.

Upon awakening, leave the shop and fly back to Bug Rock. Strich there has Beedle’s beetle, but will not return it. Unless you can catch ten bugs in three minutes. (Now you know why you want the big Bug Net!)

(1 of 10) 1. Turn left and carefully jump down. A Sand Cicada is on the wooden beam near the pots.

Once you succeed, you’ll receive Beedle’s Beetle Cage. Return to Skyloft and head into Beedle’s Airshop. Again, sleep inside the shop until night to be transported to Beedle’s Island. Speak with Beedle outside for your nice reward. (Well, considering how some of his wares cost over 1,000 Rupees…)

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps.

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
