The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Beedle's Missing Beetle

Vincent Lau

Starting Prerequisites:

  • Defeat the Bilocyte.
  • The Big Bug Net (not required, but highly preferable). A Bug Net is required. You’ll need some kind of Bug Net, long story short.


  • Five Gratitude Crystals.
  • Half-off on any item from Beedle’s shop.

Head over to Skyloft and speak with one of the people in the plaza near the Light Tower (forgot who). 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 to the southwestern portion to the large island with the crumbling tower, Bug Rock. Speak with Strich there. Play Bug Heaven if you want – that’s not part of this.

Return to Skyloft and get into Beedle’s Airshop. Sleep in his bed until night to awaken docked 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 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. (See why I recommended the big Bug Net yet?)

Once you succeed, you’ll receive Beedle’s Beetle Cage. Return to Skyloft and head into Beedle’s Airshop. Speak with him, go to sleep in the shop until night, then exit the Airshop to be back on Beedle’s Island. Speak with him for your nice reward. (I mean, considering how some items are 1,000+ Rupees…)

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.
