Skyward Sword Bugs

Below, you'll find a Skyward Sword Bugs guide, listing all of Bugs that can be found in Skyward Sword. This guide will list the locations of all bugs, as well as their Sale Price and Infusion Recipes. Once you defeat Bilocyte and save Levias in Thunderhead, Stritch will appear on Bug Island within the Thunderhead. Here, you can sell whichever bugs you have obtained, which is what the Sale Price refers to.

Also, you can visit the Infusion Shop in the Bazaar on Skyloft. Here, you can talk to Bertie, who will infuse bugs into your potions to make them stronger and more useful. Listed in each bug box are the Infusion Recipes each bug is used for, and how many are needed for each one.

The Bugs can be found throughout the game, all over the map. To catch almost any bug, you must have obtained at least the Bug Catching Net from Beedle's Airshop. This will allow you to catch and keep any bug you find. Once enough of each bug is caught, they can be used to upgrade potions, equipment and items. For full context as to where each upgrade can be acquired, be sure to take a look at our Skyward Sword Walkthrough.
