The Rescue Knights patrol the airs above Skyloft and rescue those that fall off the edge, often giving them a stern warning to be more careful. Only seniors who graduate from the Knight Academy are allowed to become Rescue Knights, but senior students at the Knight Academy such as Karane, Pipit and Link get to wear knight uniforms before they graduate. Only certified Rescue Knights are allowed to pilot their Loftwings at night, and their Loftwings are equipped with a flashlight on their headgear.

- "Watch your step there! You can't always depend on knights like me to swoop in and save you." — Rescue Knight (Skyward Sword)
- "Watch your step there! Haven't they taught you at the academy that knights must always be vigilant? Sharpen up, or you'll never make it to knighthood!" — Rescue Knight (Skyward Sword)
- "All set for today's big Wing Ceremony? If you come away with a win, you'll move on up to the senior class. Then after you graduate, you get to be a rescue knight. Those knights sure do keep order here in Skyloft, and I don't have to tell you that it's a pretty big deal to become one." — N/A (Skyward Sword)
- "Just think: if you win today, you'll become a senior like us and you'll be a very big step closer to graduating as a knight. You'll even get a knight's uniform like I'm wearing. Something tells me you'll be pretty handsome in it!" — Karane (Skyward Sword)
- "Oh, and don't let me catch you going out flying at night. Only trained knights such as myself should be doing that. You take care now!" — Rescue Knight (Skyward Sword)
- "Don't know if you've met 'em or not, but the rescue knights save anyone clumsy enough to fall off of Skyloft. Only the Knight Academy's seniors are invited to join that group. They're the best of the best! [...] Guess I should tell you my grandson's one of 'em!" — Croo (Skyward Sword)
