The Upgrade System is a feature that appears in Skyward Sword and A Link Between Worlds.

Skyward Sword

This system allows Link to take items that he already has and enhance them using the Treasures found on the Collection screen. For example, if Link has acquired all of the necessary materials, Link's old Wooden Shield is turned into a stronger, more durable Banded Shield. Not only can Link upgrade his shields, but also his items. An example is Link turning his Slingshot into a Scattershot. This is a unique way of keeping items from becoming unused, and unloved, like they have once or twice in previous Zelda titles.

The tables below list only items than can be upgraded, detailing cost, item requirements, and the upgraded item's new name. A comprehensive list of all items can be found here.

A Link Between Worlds

Main article: Mother Maiamai

In A Link Between Worlds, upgrades are done by visiting Mother Maiamai and rescuing her missing children by groups of ten. Whenever Link finds a group of ten Maiamai, he is prompted with the option of upgrading an item he purchased, not rented, through Ravio's Shop. Each item purchased from Ravio can be upgraded only once, and when all nine items have been enhanced, Link's Spin Attack can be upgraded to the Great Spin Attack. A list of all Maiamai locations can be found here.

Item Upgrades

Each item listed below requires ten missing Maiamais to be found before any upgrades can be performed.
