Zelda Fanart Spotlight: I Will Wait For You – Scrapper Skyward Sword

KnowleeNovember 10th, 2012 by Knowlee

Today’s Zelda Fanart Spotlight is on deviantART artist Shattered-Earth‘s Skyward Sword fanart, “I Will Wait For You – Scrapper Skyward Sword“. In this fanart it shows two characters from the game, Fi (as the Master Sword) and Scrapper, the robot who is infatuated with her. At the end of Skyward Sword, Fi enters a deep sleep now that her duty is officially done. Scrapper apparently has found out about this and goes to be with her. He decides to stay there with her until she returns so that way they could be together again.

He would wait for her forever.

I found this to be a really sweet piece of fanart. I always found the pairing of Fi and Scrapper to be sweet. Granted I did find the little ancient robot to be annoying at times I still thought that the attraction he felt towards Fi was cute. I remember when I beat the game that I found myself wondering what would happen to Scrapper now that Fi was gone. I was sure that they’d show some kind of reference to him trying to find her during the ending, but apparently they didn’t. Poor Scrapper…

The artist has other Zelda-related fanart located in their gallery. Please go give it a look and let them know what you thought of this fanart piece. Also please let us know in the comments section below!

Stay tuned for the next Zelda Fanart Spotlight! Until then!

    awwww… He’s dead…

    • Midnafan

      The robots don’t die. They just wear down until they can no longer move and whatever they try to say is unintelligeble.

      • frgovo

        Even worse then: it’s a prolonged death rant.
        It’s hard to tell whether a robot’s life is an actual life. I think Scrapper’s one was, indeed.

      • Norm the Conqueror

        So, the robots turn into R2-D2?

        • Midnafan

          but R2-D2 can move, alot. :/ you’ve sorta got the vocal part right, but apparently some people can understand the freaky little thing :/

  • Crazyskulltula

    That is an awesome piece of artwork! I wondered what had happened to scrapper myself.

    • Midnafan

      SS had a lot of side/main characters that have become way more popular than Link, Zelda, Ghirahim, etc. (i,e. Groose and Scrapper)

  • itsameluigi1290

    Oh GREAT! Because of this fanart, I now almost feel sympathy for this robot! What is WRONG with you people?!

    • Midnafan

      I loved Scrapper, I thought he was funny. It’s Fi I really have no sympathy for. How could not have thought he was cute around Fi?! He got all happy and stuff when he first saw her. :)

    • Cucco Link

      I know right! It’s just…. TOO TOUCHING!!!! I’m starting to actually CARE about scrapper!

  • Clemens909

    I like how the painting creates sympathy for scrapper even though I hated him the entire game.
    somebody please bring him an oil flower!

    • Midnafan

      They should totally have a broken down Scrapper in the corner of the room with the Master Sword in the next game it’s in. :P

      • Midnafan

        that is the most like’s i have ever had on a comment…*sniff* i feel so accomplished with my life ….:’/

  • Midnafan

    Scrapper was probably one of the few characters in the end of SS that I felt sorry for. Fi was just too unemotional for me to cry over. I did cry over Impa though, that was so shocking. I had guessed it was the case earlier in the game, but I kept having my doubts. I thought it was hilarious that he called Link Master Shortpants. Scrapper’s whole sidestory was extremely well done, even though he mostly served as help for sdequests and a couple main quests.

    • Delta

      But only Link cared when Fi left, it was such a big deal when aelda had to live Impa ya it was sad but no one else cared for Fi when she left except Link

      • Midnafan

        I don’t really know if Link cared he’s fairly expressionless, but i know what you mean, I certainly didn’t care about her though cause she was so freaking emotionless about it. Impa was sad for me cause when they revealed who she was all this time, i was screamin “NO FREAKIN’ way! I KNEW IT!” which i really had my doubts before that so it still came as a surprise. SS had an overall epic ending, i like how the doors opened so the Master Sword was against a background like the artwork for ALttP, which every Zelda fan would recognize in an instant :P

  • Jam9t3

    What if the secret temple behind the temple of time (Twilight princess) is scrapper’s new settlement that he made while waiting for Fi to ever turn back into herself? There are a lot of robotic stuff inside too. Anyways looking at this artwork makes me want to draw something myself (but never anything this good) I also have a deviant art profile and I drew a few ocarina of time items, if you want to see it then just follow the link (No pun intended).


  • Midna’s Shadow

    I think its totaly cute that he’s waiting for Fi.
    They should be together again in the new zelda game :)

  • baileygirl99

    This is really sweet :,-) it makes me sad and sympathetic for Scrapper :’-) its such a beautiful piece of artwork

  • frgovo

    Artist’s name: Shattered Earth.

    Isn’t it fitting for this piece of fanart?

  • wafflegoat

    Aww, I love this. The artist has really captured the emotion well. If they include Scrapper and Fi in the next game, I’ll be Miyamoto’s BFF. (^~^)

  • Zelda is the Bomb!!!

    So sad… poor Scrapper!!!!!!!!! D;

  • Oli98987

    Scrapper you’ll make it through those 1000 years I promise but you just won’t be alive any more

  • crb

    Well at least someone can actually fell sad for scrapper. He needed an attitude change

  • Waker of Winds

    I always hated him but now, I just don’t know. He looks drained, trying to get to something impossible. Seeing as he’s a robot, and has no true spirit and won’t be able to wake Fi. Although he may have had the possibility of a true life. He just seems more human than the other robots.

  • Norm the Conqueror


    • Midnafan

      i guess that’s a thing now

  • TwilightMirror11

    Awwwww…. That’s happy and sad… And cuteish… Though he was a bit of a jerk to Link throughout the game.

  • Mseevers95

    anyone nerdy enough to know what the Hylian on the pedestal says?

    • MasterOfSwords1

      “Hylia” :D

    • Japas

      Yea, it says “Hylia”. The written language in Skyward Sword is based off of English so its pretty easy to translate. :)

      • MasterOfSwords1

        That awkward moment when someone posts something similar to you after you did, but you appear on the bottom…

  • MasterOfSwords1

    I don’t know what’s more depressing. The fact that he stayed here with her forever, or the fact that he fell in love with that endless spout of intelligence in the first place.

  • FierceDeityFan

    So if Fi is basically an ancient ancestor of Navi, then who would Scrapper’s descendant be? Did anyone in OoT like navi?

  • punkinoodle

    This is just so perfect. I always found Scrapper annoying and mocked everything about him, including his crush on Fi. I believe Nintendo made him as a piece of humor, but this picture is really beautiful. There’s just no other words for it, really.

  • Shattered-Earth

    Thank you for featuring my work! I’m really happy you guys seem to like it. I hope it gives a new perspective on scrapper despite his *ahem* persistence in trying to annoy Link.

    • The Hylian Monolith

      It does! Iactually saw him moving on(kind of) and being depressed with Cawlin in Skyloft, but after seeing this I totally feel that he was dedicated enough to stay with her forever. Thanks.

  • RootsofOrigin

    I thought he was annoying too, but this picture adds a heart wrenching twist to his character for me.

  • The Hylian Monolith

    Every once in a while, I try to imagine what Scrapper would do without Fi. And now…this comes… I need to cry now. *sniff* I might do a Post-Fi Scrapper thhing, a bit like Saria’s Sorrow, a remix of Saria’s Song that’s all slow and sad, describing her life after Link falls asleep and Ganondorf takes control through a melody. I always thought that Scrapper was funny and whimsical, especially his love of Fi, but this…this is heartbreaking.

  • Lexi Z

    Huh, I don’t know about anyone else, but I never really considered Scrapper at the end of the game. It’s really quite bitter-sweet, because I think that’s the way many people felt, Scrapper was just kinda in the backround. So he just got plumb forgotten. Yup…one of those “time for me to state the obvious” moments…

  • Shadowknight1

    This picture, that title…it’s the artist’s fault, and it’s Matt Groening’s fault…. =(


  • Dr_Stein

    Awww! </3

  • Sir Quaffler

    Well I wasn’t thinking about what happened between Scrapper and Fin until NOW! Man, now I’m all depressed…

  • adleZ

    Like Doctor Who. Instead of the boy who waited the robot who waited.

    • Midnafan

      what boy waited? it was the girl who waited :/ i freakin cried at the end of The Angels Take Manhattan. I haven’t gotten that broken up since reading Marley&Me :'(

  • TrueMasterSwordWielder

    This makes me wanna cry for some reason. :(

  • Sage of Winds

    Curse you Shattered-Earth, for Making me feel sorry for characters I hate!

    Sniff.. Sniff.. I used to hate scrapper’s guts, but now I have sympathy….. *Runs off crying hystarically*
