During the course of your journey, you’ll obtain a certain, mystical musical instrument. When you play this among certain groups of Blessed Butterflies, a Goddess Wall will appear. Charge a Skyward Strike in front of it to start to draw on it.

Depending on what you draw, you can obtain certain rewards. You have to draw it all in one stroke by holding A, while moving the Wii Remote to actually draw. Here are the known drawings:

  • Arrow : Right-pointing arrow. Yields 30 Arrows.
  • Bomb : Closed circle. Yields 30 Bombs.
  • Fairies: Triforce. Yields 3 Fairies.
  • Hearts : Closed heart. Yields some Hearts.
  • Rupees : Closed hexagon. Yields many Rupees.
  • ??? : Results from a complete mess-up. Yields three Hearts.

Known Locations

– Sealed Grounds (x1)

– Skyview Temple (x1)

– Ancient Cistern (x2)

– Fire Sanctuary (x3)

– Sandship (x2)

– Sky Keep (x1)

Sealed Grounds

This one is probably found late in the game (I found it after the third fight versus the Imprisoned). Gorko the Goron will be behind the temple researching the Goddess Walls, and one is nearby.

Skyview Temple

Found at the northern end of the circular room in the entrance. It is in front of the shortcut to the room you flooded multiple times.

Ancient Cistern

1). Found in the room directly west of the large central first floor chamber. It is the same room with the large pool of water you eventually turn into a whirlpool.

2). In the portion of the area with the cursed water (the basement), follow the path past the lilypads to the tunnel. Defeat some Fire Keese to find some Blessed Butterflies nearby.

Fire Sanctuary

1). In the area with the broken stone bridge, which is crossed only with the Clawshots, drop to the level below. Underneath one of the overpasses is the group of Blessed Butterflies.

2). Near the “Inside Fire Sanctuary” Bird Statue, after you drop into the statue’s mouth, go along the path to find the butterflies.

3). After jumping into the statue’s mouth (as mentioned above), go further along the path to the crumbling staircase. At the bottom, in an alcove, are the butterflies.


1). From the main deck, go into the nearby room inside the ship. Go down the stairway and, at the bottom, go left.

2). On the main deck, head to the eastern mast and Clawshot to the hidden deck of the ship. (It is opposite of the chest with the Piece of Heart).

Sky Keep

In the forest room, near the Bird Statue.

Long ago, on a dark day, the earth cracked and evil forces rushed out of the fissure. These forces mercilessly attacked the people of the earth, slaughtering them and destroying their land. They did this in search of the ultimate power, a power capable of granting any wishes of its holder. This power, passed down from the gods of old, was guarded by Her Grace, the goddess of the land. The goddess gathered the surviving humans on a piece of earth and sent it skyward, beyond the clouds. With the humans safe, the goddess joined the land dwellers and fought the evil forces in a war of unmatched scale and ferocity. They eventually sealed the evil forces away, restoring peace to the surface. However, the humans remained in Skyloft, as Hylia knew that the seal on the evil would not hold forever.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft, who, after a strange dream, sets out on a journey to save his beloved home.
