Welcome to our The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Walkthrough!
Please note that we are still updating our guides to be in line with the HD version.
This walkthrough will cover all Tadtone locations in Zelda: Skyward Sword HD (Switch). Learn where to find all Tadtones in Faron Woods, as well as other useful tips on how to find them.
When players return to Faron Woods to learn part of the Song of the Hero, they will be dropped into a flooded version of the area. Players are then tasked by Faron herself to locate all of the missing Tadtones (fish versions of musical notes).
Tadtones can be found in six different colors (yellow, green, red, violet, cyan, and magenta) and can be found usually in groups. They are scattered throughout the area, all of which are under water.
|Number||Location and Description|
|1||Next to the small lily pads that are near Bucha's big lily pad.|
|2||Under the big root on the east side of the Great Tree|
|3||Inside the smaller hollowed out tree.|
|4||Between the roots of the smaller hollowed out tree.|
|5||In the open swimming around a tree in the easternmost part of the area.|
|6||In front of the Viewing Platform.|
|7||Inside the Viewing Platform.|
|8||Next to the Viewing Platform.|
|9||Caught in the underside of a lily pad just north of the Great Tree. Climb on the Great Tree and jump down on the lily pad to release the Tadtone.|
|10||Swimming around a tree north west of the Great Tree.|
|11||North east of the Great Tree, behind some rocks. Spin attack the nearby Froak to blow up the rocks.|
|12||South west of the Great Tree, hiding across from each other in the grass.|
|13||Near the Faron Woods Entry Bird Statue.|
|14||In the south wester part of the map, they form a long line through the path.|
|15||Swimming near the Lake Floria Gate.|
|16||North of the two Kikwi who are on a lily pad in the south.|
|17||Swimming around the sea floor west of Bucha.|
Players will need to collect a full group of Tadtones before moving on to the next. If all Tadtones in a group are not collected in time, then they will leave the players inventory and will need to be collected again.
When near Tadtones, unleashing a spin attack will activate a magnet-like effect and pull in the Tadtones around you.
While underwater, players can use the blue bubbles to refill Link's oxygen gauge. Purple (poison) bubbles will have the opposite effect and choke Link by depleting part of his oxygen gauge. Tadtones also give you a little bit of oxygen as you catch them, so players will not have to worry so much about drowning while collecting Tadtones.
After players collect 7 full notes, a shiver of Craniocs will appear. You can easily defeat the Craniocs with spin attacks. They can also be avoided by staying in the deeper part of the water, as Craniocs stay near the surface.
After players collect 12 full notes, Bucha will help players unlock the ability to douse for the remaining Tadtones. Dowsing can not be done while in the water so players will need to be on land to perform it.
