To make decent progress in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, you’ll want to get your hands on the Monster Claws. They’re an in-game resource that can prove crucial for upgrading gear and key items. If you’re struggling to find the Monster Claws, then fear not – we’ve got you covered on how to get them.
How to Get Monster Claws in Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
To get the Monster Claws in Skyward Sword, you’ll need to take out a range of specific and very particular enemies. If you can defeat these monsters, in their specific locations, then they’re guaranteed to drop a Monster Claw for you to use.
First up, if you defeat a Keese, you’ll get a Monster Claw. That is, if you find them in the Skyloft, Waterfall Cave, Lanayru Mining Facility, Faron Woods, and Skyview Temple.
Also in Faron Woods are the Guay – and if you defeat them, they’ll drop a Monster Claw. You can also find them in The Sky. Unsurprisingly, this is above the Cloud Barrier. Head there and defeat the enemies, and a Monster Claw will be yours.
The next creature is Walltula, available in Faron Woods, Thunderhead, and Skyview Temple. You’ll also get a Monster Claw for defeating the Fire Keese in Eldin Volcano, and the Thunder Keese in Lanayru Desert.
This is where to find the Monster Claws in Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. You won’t be able to find them in any other locations. The claws are especially useful for upgrading your attacking and defensive equipment, like the Iron Bow, and the Fortified Shield. Getting the Monster Claws will make your playthrough a lot easier – so make sure to get them, to save yourself some hassle later on.
