The Legend of Zelda: Skyword Sword – Major Glitch (Spoilers)
When battling the boss (Abyssal Leviathan – “Tentalus”) after going after Nayru’s Flame on the Sandship I encountered a glitch.
What should happen is that Tentalus should knock the ship in such a way that the block falls down and Link can climb to the upper deck for the final moments of the battle.
When I captured this footage, that never happened. Essentially the game kicked into the final stages of the battle before moving to the top, which lead to a stalemate.
I believe this occurred because I kept using my Bow/Arrow to hit his eye when he fell instead of my sword.
I’m fortunate that I save a lot, so I had to reset the Wii and do it all over. If you did not save during the Sandship stage or prior… ouch.
Normal Boss Battle:
You’ll notice how the battle moves to the upper deck around 5:20 after using the sword.
