"You got the Emerald Tablet! The weathered surface of this heavy stone tablet feels very old."

— In-Game Description[1]

The Emerald Tablet is one of three stone tablets that form the Ancient Tablet in Skyward Sword. It is the first one Link receives and is obtained on Skyloft within the Statue of the Goddess. After Link pulls the Goddess Sword out of its pedestal, Fi summons the Emerald Tablet and gives it to Link in order to help him on his journey to reunite with Zelda. She then tells Link to imbue the Goddess Crest with a Skyward Strike in the chamber.[2] Once Link hits the crest, he can place the Emerald Tablet into the newly revealed altar.[3] Similarly to the other tablets, the Emerald Tablet then creates a column of light that appears south of Skyloft, opening a small rift in the Cloud Barrier.[4][5] This allows Link to fall down to the wooded region of the Surface, Faron Province.[6][7]



  1. "You got the Emerald Tablet! The weathered surface of this heavy stone tablet feels very old." — In-Game Description, Skyward Sword.
  2. "Master, the first thing you must do is hit the crest sitting in this room with a Skyward Strike. These blasts are formed of pure energy that charges within your blade when you lift it skyward. Once you have charged your blade, face the crest and swing your sword to send out a powerful Skyward Strike." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
  3. "Master [Link], I suggest you imbue that crest with the power of your Skyward Strike and then insert the tablet I gave you a moment ago. To gather energy from the heavens and charge up a Skyward Strike, point your sword skyward." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
  4. "Master, I have an update regarding the stone tablet and the resulting column of light it created. A column of light has appeared to the south of our location, and signs indicate that it has created an opening in the cloud barrier to the land below." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
  5. "Until now, a cloud barrier created by the goddess has separated the world you know from the one below. The tablet you placed in the altar has opened a small rift in the barrier. You can use it to travel through the clouds to the realm below. I have recognized you as my master, and so it is my duty to follow you wherever you may go. I reside within your sword and will accompany you in your travels. Press [d-pad down] to summon me whenever you require my assistance." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
  6. "A fragment of the ancient tablet that leads to the surface. It opens the way to Faron Woods." — Inventory Description, Skyward Sword.
  7. "To search for Zelda, I recommend you dive into the column of light in the clouds and fall to the ground below. The column of light is to the south of Skyloft." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
