The Beetle is an item in Skyward Sword.
Location and Uses
The Beetle can be found inside the Skyview Temple after defeating a Stalfos in the central room located in the northern chamber. It is a small, flying, insect-like item that can be used to pick up far away objects such as Rupees or Hearts, or even drop things onto enemies, such as Bombs. The Beetle can also be used to sever the stems of Deku Babas, defeating them. Any item that the Beetle picks up will be returned to Link.
When Link uses the Beetle, the camera will follow behind it. The Beetle can then be steered by tilting the Wii Remote in the desired direction. If the item bumps into a wall or is hurt by an enemy, it will be knocked down and return Link. The Beetle flies for 30 seconds unless it goes too far away from Link, in which case the time will be cut short and the Beetle will return.
The Beetle can be upgraded to the Hook Beetle in the Lanayru Desert, adding a mandible that is able to carry up items. The Quick Beetle, an optional upgrade available at the Scrap Shop in the Bazaar, allows the Beetle to fly faster. The Tough Beetle, another optional upgrade, enables the Beetle to fly much farther than before.
