ABOUT THIS FAQ:

==============================================================================

Notice: I requested the guide be taken down earlier, if you were wondering
where it went. This was to fix some fatal mistakes and to avoid confusion.
I appreciate your patience!

This FAQ is about the Goddess Cubes that can be  found all over the overworld 
in the LEGEND OF ZELDA: SKYWARD SWORD.

Each cube corresponds to a chest that can be found in the Sky, and the player
may open the chest once the cube that corresponds with it is struck on the
ground.

The guide details the locations of the cube that has to be hit with a Skyward
Strike, where the corresponding chest is located, and what is within the
chest.

Please note that Spoilers may be abound (Not as much story unless where
relevant, but also certain items one may acquire, etc), so please keep this
in mind! I try to keep it as spoiler free as possible, but sometimes something
as simple as an Island name is quite the give away! So please read at your
own risk.

I hope you find this guide useful, and for any suggestions, corrections, and
any relevant information, check out the contact section at the bottom!

WHAT ARE THEY? [WAT]

==============================================================================

The Goddess Cubes are the cubes you ind scattered around the three overworlds
in Skyward Sword. They are not in the Dungeons, or indoors. The cubes must be
hit by a Skyward Strike (the Sword Beam, when you hold the Wiimote twoard the
sky) in order to be "activated."

When activated, the chests in the sky can be opened. It's as simple as that!
A lot of the items can be purchased at stores, or may just be vasts amount
of money, but there are rarer items such as Pieces of Heart, so they are
defintiely something for any player to look out for--and especially
completionists.

After acquiring the Sword Upgrade for more Dowsing targets, Fi will add the
Goddess Cube to the list of selectable targets, making it easier for the
player to find these cubes on their own.

Activated chests will be glowing on the map when you are flying around in
the sky, making it easy to pinpoint which sky islands they are on! Sometimes
getting to them is a little tricky, and for that you can refer to the guide
below. It is helpful if you use the beacons to mark where the chests are so 
you know which island to drop to!

Sometimes you have to drop to a higher part of the island, or in the cases
of some islands split in two, land on the appropriate part! Either way, if
you mess up, you can just jump off the island, fly a bit, turn around, and
try again.

The instructions for reading the guide are below, and I try to make it as
straightforward as possible

==============================================================================

HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE [ToC]

==============================================================================

The format is simple!

=Goddess Cube ### - ____________________ [0000] (LOCATION) [SKY LOCATION]
-Requires: _______

-GUIDE (Cube)
-GUIDE (Chest)

=Goddess Cube ### (The Goddess Cube number)

- ____________________ (What is inside the chest)

[0000] Index number for this guide to make it easier to search

(LOCATION) The Location (Whether it is Faron Woods, Eldin Volcano, or Lanayru
                         Desert)

[SKY LOCATION] Where it is in the Sky, if applicable in a few words (i.e.
               Skyloft).

-Requires: ________ If there are any item requirements to get the chest/cube,
 they will be here. The cubes are generally in the order that you would
 acquire them with items at hand, however, but the chests may require items
 you do not have when you are able to activate the cube.

-GUIDE (Cube) The Guide for where the cube is in the overworld

-GUIDE (Chest) The Guide for where the chest is in the sky, if needed (Keep
               in mind chests will be glowing on the map, and should serve 
               as a better directional reminder than my horrible guidelines)

==============================================================================

LOCATIONS [LOC]

==============================================================================

Below are the Locations as they appear in the Table of Contents. Each cube
is divided into it's own sub section.

The cubes, and corresponding chest with item are displayed below!

Note: FW = Faron Woods
      EV = Eldin Volcano
      LD = Lanayru Desert

By attainable order (Suggested). Areas are on right side if you want to
narrow it down by location.

Simple suggestions!:

1 - I try to pinpoint where they are by referencing save points or landmarks,
    however, the cubes in this game are easy to spot, it's getting to them
    that usually provides some sort of challenge.
2 - Dowsing is your friend! As soon as you get the ability to dowse for these
    cubes, they will provide a better way to follow my sometimes vague
    instructions!
3 - The Sky Map is the best friend when looking for the Chests! Usually they
    require some minor exploration of the island they are on, but are
    (usually) avaliable from the moment you are able to reach the cube!

Note: Below list uses corresponding numbers in the "Breakdown" section.

* - Are subject to change. Any unmarked has a confirmed cube/chest
correlation, and item inside. The marked ones, if inconsistent with what you
see here, please email me what you found, and more importantly, on which
island! Marked locations are currently going through investigation and may
not have a chest guide, but all cube guides are posted!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #01 - Adventure Pouch Slot [GC01] (Deep Woods) [Lumpy Pumpkin]

-GUIDE (Cube):

Located near the Deep Woods save point.

This one is fairly straightforward, as it is an introduction, and you can't
miss this. After you speak to the Gorko, you will have to strike the
block with a Skyward Strike! And off it goes.

-GUIDE (Chest):

The chest will be outside the Lumpy Pumpkin (Located southeastish of Skyloft,
or east of the Faron Woods entrance). It is right outside the right side of
the main entrance, and doesn't require any special technique to get to it.

It contains an Adventure Pouch add-on, making you able to hold one more item.

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #02 - Piece of Heart [GC02] (Deep Woods) [Sky Island]

-GUIDE (Cube):

You can see this one across the gap to Skyview Temple. It is literally right
across from the Forest Temple save point.

This one is located close to Goddess Cube #01, when you go down the stair-like
platforms, and it will be in plain sight, next to the gap.

-GUIDE (Chest):

On the Sky map, it should be located on an island south of the Faron Woods
entrance. It is in plain sight and is accessible on the island, so it should
not be too much trouble to get to.

It contains a Piece of Heart!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #03 - Gold Rupee (300 Rupees) [GC03] (Skyview Spring) [Lumpy
                    Pumpkin]

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one you can get as soon as you clear Skyview Temple! Be sure to get it!

When you enter Skyview Spring (beyond the boss door, after you defeat the
Temple Boss); It's located behind the the Skyward Strike target (and Goddess
Statue).

Be sure to grab it before you use the Skyward Strike on the emblem that will 
take you into the cutscene! This one is often missed.

-GUIDE (Chest):

This is the second of two chests on the Lumpy Pumpkin (Southeast of Skyloft,
east of the Faron Woods entrance). However, instead of being on the ground, 
it's on the roof above the entrance, and so you have to use your Loftwing to 
get a good angle to jump from, landing on the roof. It is not actually that
hard to do, but if you miss, just jump off, call your Loftwing, and try again!

It contains a Gold Rupee, which is worth 300 Rupees, don't make the mistake
of having a full wallet!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #04 - Seed Satchel (Small) [GC04] (Eldin Volcano) [Sky Island]

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one is hard to miss, when you first descend into the area, it should
be right ahead of you to your left located near the Bird Statue (which is 
before it forks to go left and right).

-GUIDE (Chest):

If you look at your glowing chest, it will show it on an island southwest
of Fun Fun Island.

There should be a Small Seed Satchel inside. These are avaliable at stores,
too, but free is always nice. It can be upgraded to hold more seeds.

=GODDESS CUBE #05 - Silver Rupee (100 Rupees) [GC05] (Eldin Volcano) [Sky
                    Island]

-GUIDE (Cube):

From the "Volcano East" save point, just follow the path up, take a left where
it splits (so the cave entrance will be on your right). It will be at the end 
of the left path!

When you enter the "Eldin Volcano Interior" (the place that was previously
surrounded by lava which drains when you roll a bomb to blow the plug open),
it is on one of the platforms you see on your way down.

You have to dive and land on the same platform as the cube (it will be located
to the upper right side of your dive).

If you mess up, just take the nearby wind-lift back up, then go back and jump
again, and try landing on the cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

I believe you actually cannot get this one until you are able to enter the
thundercloud, which happens as you progress in the story.

Once you do, it should be located on the Isle of Songs (to the far northwest, 
in the Thundercloud. It islocated on the lower side of the island, 
on the grass.)

It (should) contain a Gold Rupee, worth 300 rupees!

=GODDESS CUBE #07 - Gold Rupee (300 Rupees) [GC07] (Eldin Volcano) [Clean Cut
                    Minigame Island]

-GUIDE (Cube):

Facing the Earth Temple, if you go left, there will be a high platform, with
a digging spot between it, and a platform with a bombable rock on it.

Grab a nearby bomb flower, run to the geyser holding it, and it should shoot
up with you, blowing the wall open.

Behind that wall is a Goddess Cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

Located north of the Eldin Volcano entrance, it is on the island where you 
can play the Bamboo-cutting Minigame. It should be in plain sight. There
should be a Gold Rupee, worth 300 Rupees, inside!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #08 - Treasure Medal [GC08] (Eldin Volcano) [Sky Island]

Near the Earth Temple, there is a small Bokoblin camp to the right of the 
Temple (if you were facing into the temple, left if you were coming out).

lava, look for the small path on the right that goes downward, and at the end 
should be a Goddess Cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

This on is located on an island southeast of Beedle's Island, it should
contain a Treasure Medal!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #09 - Piece of Heart [GC09] (Eldin Volcano) [Skyloft]

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one is located on the fairly long sand slide, located on the east side
of the map. You can access it after cross the fallen-tower bridge in the
Bokoblin camp, and following the path north and around until you reach
the room that Link cannot stay too long in without getting burned.

Going out the south exit of that burning room will take you on the slide.

When on the slide, go down the left path, and hit the first geyser that will
shoot you up onto a platform.

From there, go to the front edge of the platform, the camera angle should
change so you can see the cube on a lower platform. You should be able to
jump over to it.

Note: Sliding left, make sure you are holding the "A" button which will allow
you to steer easier.

-GUIDE (Chest):
-Requires: Water Dragon's Scale

Located on Skyloft, near Kukiel's house, locked up in the shed! You will have
to swim to get it by going into the water and finding the tunnel inside. You
can't do this without the Scale, however, so may have to come back to it later
if you don't have them.

It should contain a Piece of Heart!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #10 - Silver Rupee (100 Rupees) [GC10] (Lanayru Mine)
                    [Sky Island]

lower area of the island, where there is a bombable pile of rubble.
Blow it up to reveal the chest!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #11 - Heart Medal [GC11] (Lanayru Desert) [Sky Island]

-GUIDE (Cube):

In the place before the Western Desert save point, where you have to cross
the quick sand using the shells of the Ampilus, there is a Goddess Cube.

Make your way to the central island, and then you have to use your Hook Beetle
to bomb the Ampilus when it is midway between the island with the Godess Cube 
and yourself. It can be tricky sometimes, but shouldn't be too much trouble.

Make a dash to the shell, refill your stamina, then dash across again.

Alternatively, I suppose you can use Stamina Potions, but that can be costly.

-GUIDE (Chest):

To the east of the Lanayru Desert entrance there is an island that should
have this chest on it. Look on the map for a glowing chest to confirm it.
You have to land on a very particular outcropping, so pilot the Loftwing
accordingly! It should be on the north side of the island.

You will receive a Heart Medal! Very useful for Hero Mode more so than
the standard mode!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #12 - Piece of Heart [GC12] (Lanayru Desert) [Isle of Songs]

-GUIDE (Cube):

When you reach the far northwest corner of the desert (the place that has
mine cars and timeshift stones that lead to the Temple of Time), the cube
will be along the railway.

This one you have to hit from a distance as your minecar moves. Charge up
your skyward strike, and slash in the direction of the cube as soon as you
pass it. It shouldn't be too difficult to hit, but if you do miss, just ride
the minecar backward once again until you get it.

-GUIDE (Chest):

This one is on Beedle's island (located Northeastish), it should be in clear
view, and contains a Piece of Heart!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #13 - Silver Rupee (100 Rupees) [GC13] (Faron Woods) [Skyloft]

-GUIDE (Cube): Once you are able to reach the top of the Great Tree (there
should be a descendable save point), you can get this one.

Head to the vines that lay below that (annoying) Deku Hornet nest, that you
likely passed by the first time up the Great Tree. From here, if you
continue a bit left and downward to the stamina fruit, you should be able
to drop straight down to where you want to be. From there, you can hop your
way to where the Goddess Cube will be. It really, really helps to use a
beacon for this cube, just so you are sure you are going the right way.

On the map, it will be located on the leftish side of the Great Tree, you
should be able to spot it easily from the ground, and so should be able to
mark it with a beacon.

-GUIDE (Chest):

Located on Skyloft. There is a diving platform located near a wind mill (it
will be on the right assuming you just came down from the Academy steps).

You should be able to see a smaller island if you are facing out the right
way, and you are supposed to run off the platform, diving, and manuvering
yourself to that island.

It should contain a Silver Rupee, worth 100 Rupees!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #14 - Rupee Medal [GC14] (Faron Woods) [Sky Island]

-GUIDE (Cube): Once you are able to reach the top of the Great Tree (there
should be a descendable save point), you can get this one.

This cube is located on the side of the Great Tree that faces the way to the
Deep Woods. (You should be able to see it from where you enter the zone to
the trial).

I recommend you go on the ground to see where the cube is located,
as you will be able to place a beacon to pinpoint exactly where you will be
landing. However, do not place that beacon on the cube, rather, on the
platform across from the cube, that has a tightrope connecting it.

Now, from the top of the tree save point, follow the path until you are
clearly lined up with the beacon, and run off to do a dive, and manuever
yourself to land where the beacon was placed.

From there, walk the rope across to the cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

You have to have access to the Stormcloud to get this one.

This one is located in the stormcloud as well, northeast of the Isle of Songs.

Simply land on the small island, clear the wall of the Skulltulas, and climb
the vines up, it should be right there!

Inside is a Rupee Medal! Now Rupees will appear more often as long as it's
equipped.

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #15 - Gold Rupee (300 Rupees) [GC15] (Lake Floria) [Skyloft]
-Requires: Water Dragon's Scale

-GUIDE (Cube):

While swimming and following Parella to the Water Dragon, there are several
places you can get up on land on.

The cube will be located on the first set of land, located where you first
have to perform the twisting jump to get over the gate. It will be on the
left side, when facing the gate.

Just spin jump onto either side, and make your way to the cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):
 -Requires: Clawshots

The chest is located on Skyloft. Make your way to the waterfall, and then
turn, looking up at the floating islands above you. You should be able to
clawshot onto the vines hanging from the ledges. Make your way to the top
of the waterfall using the clawshots and vines.

Now, face the glowing chest on the platform it sits on, place a beacon if
you need to, then dive off, landing where the chest is located!

It should contain a Gold Rupee, worth 300 Rupees!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #16 - Heart Medal [GC16] (Lanayru Desert) [Sky Island]
-Requires: Clawshots

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one is located in the far northeast of the Lanayru Desert. See the path
that goes in a circle in the northeast? You can get there by bombing the
bottom section of that circle (the map should show the wall ending there,
and a notable crack in the wall).

Follow the path up to a chest that contains a Piece of Heart, and from there
should be a series of Clawshot targets that will allow you to make your way
over the quicksand, eventually reaching a platform where you can clawshot onto
the platform with the cube on it!

-GUIDE (Chest):
 -Requires: Water Dragon's Scale

Located west of Beetle's Island. There is a pool of water on the island, dive
into it, and follow the path to appear in the room with the chest.

It contains a Heart Medal! This makes Hearts more likely to appear, or in
the case of Hero Mode, to appear at all. Very useful!

-Requires: Clawshots

-GUIDE (Cube):

From the West Desert save point (south west on the map), just turn and find
the clawshot target up on the wall. Grab onto it, and once up there, you
should be able to see the cube, just make your way over to it!

Or, you can start from the side closer to the cube (you should be able to
see it up on the walls from the ground, and use your clawshots to climb
up there anyway).

Either way, it should get you to that cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

This one is located on an island northwest of Fun Fun Island.

Drop to where you found the earlier chest (or simply the accessible area
if you didn't get that chest), and then find the vines that hang off the side,
and climb down and around until you reach the chest.

It should contain a Life Medal! This gives you an extra Heart on your
health meter while in your item pouch, something like a portable heart 
container!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #18 - Gold Rupee (300 Rupees) [GC18] (Lanayru Sand Sea)
                    [Skyloft]
-Requires: Clawshots

-GUIDE (Cube):

When you first come to the Sand Sea, it will be to your right if you were
facing out toward the "sea". On the map, it will be in the northern area,
inside the large area. To get there, you have to climb onto the stack of
large crates using the clawshots (look for the target marks).

Go through the entranceway, fight off the annoying bugs, and then hit the
cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

This is the chest that is located in the Bazaar, between the Scrap Shop
and the Item Check. Open it up!

It should contain a Gold Rupee, worth 300 Rupees!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #19 - Potion Medal [GC19] (Lanayru Sand Sea) [Sky Island]
-Requires: Clawshots

-GUIDE (Cube): 

This is located in the area that has the Skipper's House, located in the
southern area of the Sand Sea where you go to get the chart. While ascending,
it will be in clear view on an isolated platform. To get there, you have
to clawshot over to the vines, and then roate around, and clawshot again,
making your way to the platform with the cube on it.

It shouldn't be too hard to reach/spot!

-GUIDE (Chest):

Located on the island northwest of Fun Fun Island, this chest is behind bars,
you will have to land across from it.

You will have to drop across the cage, then clawshot to the target through
the open section of the cage.

Do that, and claim the Potion Medal! This medal is especially useful for
those who use the potions often, as you may figure by the name.

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #20 - Piece of Heart [GC20] (Lanayru Sand Sea) [Skyloft]

-GUIDE (Cube):

This is located at the Pirate Stronghold (in the northwest of the Sand Sea).
After you get the "mouth" open and gain entrance to the stronghold, you can
get this cube.

Look for a clawshot target near the entrance, and from there, make your way
up to the second target across the way from there. Once you climb up, just go
down the platform and it should be in plain view.

-GUIDE (Chest):

Make your way to the waterfall on Skyloft. Look up when you reach the 
entrance, and to the left, use your clawshots on the hanging vines, and then 
shoot at the vines across from there to make your way to the top of the
waterfall. The chest should be at the very top!

It contains a Piece of Heart!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #21 - Empty Bottle [GC21] (Volcano Summit) [Sky Island]

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one is to the right of the save point in the Volcano Summit, on your
way to visit the Fire Dragon, Eldin.

Note: I have received messages that people have been able to hit it before the
floating platforms come, by standing close to the edge and using a sword
beam that will just barely make it. You could try it, but if it fails, just
wait for those platforms!

If that doesn't work;

You will have to wait until you are visiting the Fire Dragon, where there will
be platforms moving about. You will have to hop on one of the platforms, and
fire a sword beam at the cube.

Hop on one, hit it, and that's that!

-GUIDE (Chest):
 -Requires: Mogma Mitts

This is located on a very small island soutwhest of the Isle of Songs, use
the glowing chest on the map to guide you to it. There should be a small place
to land on. Using your mitts, you have to dig underground. Take the right
exit to reach the chest. Keep in mind that there is another chest and exit
here, as you will need to come back later.

It contains an Empty Bottle! A very useful and favorite item.

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #22 - Piece of Heart [GC22] (Volcano Summit) [Bug Heaven]

-GUIDE (Cube):

When you are within the burning zone of the Volcano (which requires the
Fireshield Earrings), on your way to the Fire Sanctuary where you have to 
feed the thirsty frogs water, there is a waterfall and pond outside (to the
left, if facing north). (You can use the dowsing method to help you, which
you should have by now).

While you can scoop up water here, to reach the cube, look off the ledge. 
You will notice vines everywhere on the few rocks that you can see.

Leap off, so that you go into a dive, and navigate your fall around the rock, 
you will see the cube come into view. Land on the platform. (If you miss, just
find the proper direction by dowsing, place a beacon, and go for it again!)

-GUIDE (Chest):

It is located in an island in the stormcloud, southwest of the Isle of Songs.
(The island that later becomes Bug Heaven).

Get to the highest point of the island, and there should be a small part
that juts out. Go to the edge, and peak off, you will see the chest is on
a small wooden platform directly below you, jump!

The chest should contain a Piece of Heart!

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #23 - Bomb Bag (Small) [GC23] (Volcano Summit) [Isle of Songs]

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one is located near the entrance to the Fire Sanctuary. If facing the
fire sanctuary, head left into the room with windows.

get to the vines, allowing you to climb up onto the platform. Beat the
Lizalfos, and the Goddess Cube should be right there.

-GUIDE (Chest):

This one is located at the highest point of the Isle of Songs, you can easily
get to it by flying over with your Loftwing and jumping.

                    Right below Fun Fun Island]
-Requires: Clawshots

-GUIDE (Cube):

This is right outside the Ancient Cistern. If you face up opposite of the
entrance, you will see some vines you can clawshot onto. The way up should
be straightforward after you grapple onto the first set of vines. Make your
way up there and get the cube!

-GUIDE (Chest):

This chest is located right below Fun Fun Island. You will have to fly close
to notice that there is an island beneath it. Fly your Loftwing in at an
angle where you can dive onto the island without diving onto Fun Fun Island.

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #25 - Rupee Medal [GC25] (Deep Woods) [Beedle's Island]
-Requires: Clawshots

-GUIDE (Cube):

This one is actually located on top of Skyview Temple. If you go to the Temple
entrance, and then to the right of it (assuming you were facing the entrance),
you will find a way to grapple using your clawshots. When on the roof, make
your way to the cube. You can use the dowsing ability to help.

-GUIDE (Chest):

This one is located on Beedle's Island, but can only be gotten at night. You
cannot fly your Loftwing at night. So what you're supposed to do is go to
Beetle's Airship over Skyloft, and sleep in his bed until night while he
pedals away, watching you snooze.

When you awake, you will be on Beetle's Island. Go out of the room, but then
take a left, and climb the ladder, and make your way to the small area with
the chest that you can reach now that his airship is back.

Had you been here during the day, you would be unable to get into there.

Open it up! It contains a Rupee Medal! Just what you need to keep up with
his constantly climbing prices.

==============================================================================

=GODDESS CUBE #26 - Piece of Heart [GC26] (Faron Woods) [Sky Island]
-Requires: Clawshots (Sort of)

This one is located on the bottom right area of the tree, hanging over the
pool of water you had to dive into to enter the tree.

I've been told you can make a jump from the top area of the tree to here,
but was unable to confirm it, to be safe, just bring the clawshots!

Update: Well, yep, falling down works, use a beacon and try it yourself
sometime! (This makes the cube easier to acquire--once you get access to the
top of the tree).

With the clawshots, just look for the target on the bottom side of the curved 
root at the end of the platform the cube is on. Hook up to it, and then the
cube is yours.

-GUIDE (Chest):

Located on an island east of the Lanayru Desert entrance.

The chest should contain a Piece of Heart!

CLOSING/CREDITS/CONTACT INFORMATION [CCC]

==============================================================================

As you can see, it is a little hard to cross list the cubes and the chests
they unlock, as such, some cubes may be missing their chest and item FAQ,
and I will aim to update them as the information becomes avaliable.

I am open to suggestions on streamlining this FAQ, as I have the tendency
to write in a clutter that makes no sense.

I was thinking about organizing the cubes by location rather than a suggested
number order to make things more convenient for one searching...

Any errors you may find, even if a small typo, please email me! Also, if you
have any suggestions and corrections, that would be much appreciated too!

I may make a supplementary map to aid this FAQ and post it separately, but
I suppose that depends on whether or not the readers need it or not!

And yes, that horrible Master Sword imitation made up of #'s and @'s took
me forever! If you ever want to use it somewhere--please ask!

Thanks for reading!
