The Clawshot from Twilight Princess
Reaching faraway objects
Location and Uses
In Twilight Princess, Link finds a Clawshot in the Lakebed Temple after defeating the Deku Toad. The Clawshot can be used inside the dungeon to reach new areas by latching at vines, targets, Peahats, and grids. It can also be used to remove the armor of Helmasaurs so they can be damaged. It is also required to defeat the temple's boss, Morpheel.
In the City in the Sky, Link finds another Clawshot after defeating an Aeralfos. Once the Double Clawshots are obtained, Link can use one of the Clawshots to hang from a ceiling or wall and then fire the second one to a new target. This is required to complete the dungeon and defeat its boss, Argorok.
The Clawshots can also be used in the overworld to reach new areas and items, such as Pieces of Heart. They are required to complete the STAR Game. In the Wii version of the game, they are targeted by using the Wii Remote.
In Skyward Sword, both Clawshots are obtained at once by completing Nayru's Silent Realm. They can be used to latch onto targets, vines, and Peahats. Sometimes, Peahats must be unearthed with the Whip before they can be latched onto.
