Rewards

Bug Heaven is a mini-game in Skyward Sword. It is located on Bug Rock, where Strich decides to create a bug paradise after Link defeats Bilocyte.[1] During the game, Strich allows Link to go around the island and catch bugs with his Bug Net.[2] He shows Link certain pictures of bugs that he must catch, and then times him to see how long it takes to find them. There are two different levels: the Bug Beginner and Bug Wrangler.[3]

Beginner

The Beginner level costs 20 Rupees to play. Strich shows Link a picture of five different bugs — specifically a Skyloft Mantis, Volcanic Ladybug, Lanayru Ant, Sky Stag Beetle, and Starry Firefly.[4] Strich gives Link 30 Rupees if he catches them all within five minutes and 50 Rupees for a time under three minutes.[5][6] If he manages to complete it in under two minutes, Strich is impressed, but he reminds Link that he is only playing the Beginner version.[7] The possibilites for rewards are a stack of five Blessed Butterflies, Skyloft Mantises, or Sky Stag Beetles, or Deku Hornets.

Wrangler

The Wrangler level costs 50 Rupees to play. This time, Strich shows Link ten pictures of bugs instead of just five.[8] The bugs that Link must catch are one Skyloft Mantis, Lanayru Ant, Woodland Rhino Beetle, Blessed Butterfly, Gerudo Dragonfly, and Sand Cicada, as well as two Faron Grasshoppers and Eldin Rollers each. The prizes are also greater in this round. If Link completes it in under five minutes, Strich gives him 80 Rupees.[9] If Link finishes in under either three minutes or two minutes, he gives him five bugs. For under three minutes, the bugs can be five Woodland Rhino Beetles, Gerudo Dragonflies, Lanayru Ants, or Volcanic Ladybugs. For under two minutes, Strich gives him a stack of five "rare" bugs, which can be Eldin Rollers, Sand Cicadas, Faron Grasshoppers, Starry Fireflies, or Volcanic Ladybugs. He also compliments Link and says he is a master bug catcher.[10]

So I decided to go after my dream and raise a bunch of bugs here. Now I can spend my days catching all the bugs I want! You want to try catching some bugs? I'll release a few for you, so why don't you give it a shot?" — Strich, Skyward Sword.
