Attack Explanation
Base String? Sheik performs a string of seven attacks; She slashes left with a kunai, slashes right, jumps and performs a downward kick, rolls forward while performing a spin kick, jumps and performs an X-slash with two kunai, jumps back while throwing an array of kunai in an arc, and dashes forward with a left slash.
C1? Sheik plays the selected song, which triggers a unique effect:
  • Default: Sheik creates a musical burst around her.
  • Serenade of Water: Sheik creates a water shield around herself. The shield automatically protects her from effects such as Gibdo and ReDead Knight screams, and can withstand 4 Hearts’ worth of damage before breaking. Playing the Serenade again resets the durability.
  • Bolero of Fire: Sheik creates a magic circle in front of her, which detonates after a few seconds.
  • Song of Storms: Sheik creates a wide, spinning vortex around her, which remains for a few seconds. The vortex hits enemies multiple times and deals low damage, but is very useful for clearing crowds.
  • Nocturne of Shadow: Sheik creates a shadowy vortex in front of her, which sucks in and traps nearby enemies for a brief period.
  • Prelude of Light: Sheik creates a Triforce of Wisdom symbol on the ground, which remains for a brief period. Standing inside the symbol will charge Sheik’s Special Attack gauge automatically.
C2? Sheik creates a tall whirlpool in front of her, which slowly moves forward while sucking enemies in. Selects the Serenade of Water.
C3? Sheik summons a meteor that crashes down in front of her. Selects the Bolero of Fire.
C4? Sheik floats into the air and creates a horizontal burst of electricity in front of her. Selects the Song of Storms.
C5? Sheik teleports into the air with a smoke bomb and crashes down while engulfed in darkness. Selects the Nocturne of Shadow.
C6? Sheik strikes a pose, creating a blast of sacred light around her. Selects the Prelude of Light.
Special Attack Sheik floats into the air, creating a ring of harps from energy, before strumming the harp to create a series of expanding-and-shrinking musical bursts. Enemies caught inside the ring are bounced between Sheik and the outer edge, before being launched away on the final strum.
Focus Spirit Finisher Manual: Sheik plays the Minuet of Forest, sprouting a group of trees in front of her that launch nearby enemies.
Automatic: Sheik summons a rain of kunai around her that create an enormous explosion of electricity.

  • Sheik is the only warrior with no vulnerability period during her dodge, meaning that if the player mashes B / A , they can completely avoid any attack.
