Strategy

Fi's Comment

A report, master.

LD-002S Scervo

This mutinous robot stole this ship from Skipper long ago. He still commands the ship today.

When fighting in a narrow space like this, it is more effective to use thrust attacks with your sword than to try to swing your sword widely.

Scervo is a formidable pirate captain who once commanded a crew of pirates.[1] He uses a drill which acts like a sword that sparks with electricity. Many years ago, Scervo had taken over the Sandship from Skipper and is still under his command.[2] It is also implied by Fi that Scervo once served Skipper before mutinying from him.[3] Link encounters Scervo on the Sandship and must fight him.

The battle is based on a ring-out endurance, and has three rounds. Behind Link is a spike-equipped wall that will hurt him upon contact. Behind Scervo is a chasm that leads to the Lanayru Sand Sea. Link must attack Scervo so he can force him to retreat, and put him closer to the other extreme. Conversely, Scervo will try to attack Link as well, and the more times he does so (particularly double attacks), the more steps he will take forwards, which Link must prevent. When Scervo is about to fall, he throws an attack that forces Link to retreat, and the spike wall will advance several steps forward, shortening the length of the battlefield. Upon a second call of a potential fall, Scervo will lose his right arm, and will then start attacking with his left arm (a gold hook) by rotating his entire central body. Only when Link manages to put him close enough to the extreme, he will finally fall down under.

After the battle, Fi comments that she admires how it managed to function for so long, considering that this battle takes place in the present, when all the other robots (until the revival of Scrapper) are dead.[4]

Trivia

  • Internal files in Skyward Sword show Scervo's name as "LD-002G Scervo;" this is the name used in the European version, which was released first.

Nomenclature

Scervo's name may be a portmanteau of the words servo, a device used in robotics for movement, and scurvy, a common disease among pirates and other seafarers.
