Take Lanayru's Boss attack challenge until you reach the prize, an "absurdly sturdy shield". Be careful, 'cause if you fail at one boss during the challenge, you'll have to start the challenge all over. This is done after you get the melody from Lanayru.

-Sorry for replying-
THAT SHIELD WAS A HUGE PAIN IN THE ARSE TO GET! >:U
xD I got it on my first try. But Dayumn. If you want a challenge go ahead, and do that.

I should know. I DID get it, but the Forsaken boss fights really drive my gears. Though Koloktos was fun to fight again.

Only thing that felt strange about this version of the shield was how SMALL it was compared to Link and the Master Sword. In Oot, I enjoyed how huge the hylian shield was because it made the shield so big and impervious.
Not to mention that in Skyward Sword...the Master Sword ITSELF is insanely long. Link's got some strong arms if he's able to hold that thing with one hand. :O

I think the Skyward Sword incarnation of the Hylian Shield is the best so far in the series. All the essential details are there, but it has a clean simplicity that really appeals to me.
Its a shame then that you only get it so late in the game.
...Unless, like me, you looked into how to soft-mod your Wii purely for the purpose of getting it at the start of the game for the purpose of making a 'cinematic orientated' playthrough of the whole game.

Anyway, love this deviation and the whole series you've done. Fantastic job!

BLUEamnesiac Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You're right about that and there are still quite a few people that don't know it's in the game.

Soft-modding eh? Is there an unofficial Game Shark/Action Replay program out for the Wii?

BrySkye Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Indeed there is. I used one called Gecko and found tons of codes at
[link]

Soft-modding the Wii itself is really, really easy. Its finding the instructions and such online that can be harder!
But the Wiibrew.org wiki tends to have download links to everything.

This is everything I needed, in order.

Letter Bomb

Homebrew Channel

Gecko

And that's it. For the Zelda SS playthrough, I used the following codes.
- Remove black borders during cutscenes and Z-Targetting
- Remove the Rupee display.
- Remove the Shield and Stamina Gauges.
- Disable the low-health warning tone.
- Disable Fi reminders about low batteries, low shield gauge, low health and dowsing prompts
- Have the Hylian Shield from the beginning

All stuff to make the videos better, really.

You're absolutely welcome. Do you mind me using this particular shield as my twitter avatar?

By the way, have you also seen the 1458x1801 concept art rendering of this shield by Nintendo? Just wondering because I noticed the outline of the shields shape is a bit different. Your has straighter edges on the sides, giving the appearance of a more defined bend half-way down.
Don't really take it as a critique, just curious if you were wanting to put your own spin on it. =)

Sure, I don't mind. Unfortunately I haven't seen the concept art at the size, I referenced smaller images. :/

The Skyward shield looks quite like the OOT Hylian shield with minor differences, if i remember, in the 2010 demo, they used the TP Hylian shield :p

:nod: I'm surprised they made any changes as it didn't really need any. It's not like there was a shortage of wonderful shields in Skyward Sword.

I just realized something. Alot of the shields have that pheonix looking thing on it. I think it could be a reference to the Loftwings in Skyword Sword, proving it to be the first game.

BLUEamnesiac Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
You're absolutely right on that, though I bet the idea for the Loftwings were a side effect of the theme.
