Skyward Sword Goddess Cubes

Below you will find a Goddess Cubes guide for Skyward Sword, listing every Goddess Cube found in the game, along with their Goddess Treasure. Link first learns about Goddess Cubes when he runs into Gorko the Goron within the Deep Woods. You need to perform a Skyward Strike (hold the Wiimote straight up to charge it up, then swing to release its power) on the Goddess Cube, sending it into the sky, unlocking a Goddess Treasure somewhere in the land above. Many of these Goddess Treasures can be found on random islands within the Sky, with some of them needing specific items in order to reach. For full context as to when and where you can get both the Goddess Cubes and Goddess Treasures, be sure to check out the Skyward Sword Walkthrough.

Goddess Cube #1

Once you reach the Deep Woods and after you've crossed the tight ropes, you'll come across Gorko the Goron. This is the first Goddess Cube that you find, so Gorko will give you a rundown of how they work.

Once you jump down it, tilt the Wiimote to guide your fall and as you drop, you will see a Goddess Cube on the right. Hover over it and use the Sailcloth to glide your way down to the pillar with the cube. If you mess up, simply drop down and take the northern exit (air geyser) to return to the surface, circle around and try again.

On the right side of the lower perimeter of the Isle of Songs.

Goddess Cube #7

Just to the left of the entrance to the Earth Temple you'll find some soft soil locations on the ground. Dig them up using the digging mitts and one of them will reveal an air geyser. Toss a bomb flower up the air geyser and it will blow up the nearby boulder, revealing the Goddess Cube.

Alternatively, if you want to wait until later on in the quest, you can get to this Goddess Cube easily by using the Clawshot.

Piece of Heart

Just east of the entrance to the Lanayru region is this "volcano island." Fly over it and dive off your loftwing to land inside the volcano.

Rupee Medal

This one is a bit tricky. It's located on Beedle's Island, but you it's unlikely you can access it normally (it's possible, but very difficult). Hmm... Enter Beedle's Airshop in Skyloft, then sleep on his bed to go to his island at night. Climb the ladder and hop into the dwelling where he sleeps (and hangs out with a Goddess Chest apparently - go figure).

Goddess Cube #23

After Striking the Cube, use the obvious path of vines to work your way back.

Piece of Heart

Bug Island in Thunderhead. The chest is found on a small wooden ledge at the southwest part of the island. To reach it, head to the very top and stand on the "castle-like" overhang above the water. Look over the edge. See the wooden platform below? Hop down and open the chest. To leave, Clawshot the nearby vines.

Goddess Cube #25

Face the entrance to the Fire Sanctuary. Turn left and climb out the window straight ahead. Use your clawshots on a number of pillars until you reach the Goddess Cube.

Small Bomb Bag

Within Thunderhead, found directly on top of the Isle of Songs tower.

Goddess Cube #26

During the song of the hero quest when you enter the Volcano Summit, the Goddess Cube is in the room just to the right. There are floating platforms that now appear and you can use one to get closer to the Goddess Cube and deliver a Skyward Strike. Altneriavely, you can stand on solid ground, get close to the edge, and you should be able to barely reach it (True Master Sword only).
Note: If you're playing the unlocked Hard Mode, you will have the maximum range Skyward Strike for the entire game, meaning you can technically get this Cube even earlier.

Bottle

Just southwest of the Isle of Songs is an island with only one landable spot. Use the Mogma Mitts to dig into the hole and either defeat or avoid the moldorm. Climb out the bottom hole, then climb the vines to reach the chest.
Note: Even though you can potentially get its corresponding Cube early, you will be unable to get this treasure until after obtaining the Mogma Mitts.

Goddess Cube #27

During the song of the hero quest when you reach the Lanayru Gorge you'll find the Goddess Cube off in the distance in the northeast corner of the map. It is located right near the tree seedling.

Small Quiver

Like the last one, it's on the island southwest of the Isle of Songs. Enter the underground cavern and either defeat or avoid the moldorm. Climb out of the upper hole to reach the final chest.
