Tumbleweed is a treasure in Skyward Sword and object in Tears of the Kingdom.

Skyward Sword

"You got a Tumbleweed! This dried mass of plant material could come in handy. Might as well take it with you."

— In-game Description[1]

Tumbleweed is a collectible item found in Skyward Sword. They are found rolling across the sands of Lanayru Desert and can be caught using a Bug Net.[2][3][4][5] They sell for approximately 20 Rupees and can be used to upgrade certain items:

Tears of the Kingdom

"Tumbleweeds: Slash a tumbleweed rolling around Gerudo Canyon, and you might find an item inside."

— Loading screen tip

Tumbleweeds roll around the vicinity of Gerudo Canyon, near the Gerudo Canyon Skyview Tower. Slashing them occasionally reveals a material, such as a Spicy Pepper.

They cannot be taken into Link's inventory directly; but can be fused to a weapon, making a Tumbleweed Club or similar. However, given that they have a fuse attack power of only 1, and break apart after only a few hits (leaving the original weapon), this is of little benefit.

  2. "A dried plant that tumbles around the desert. Snag it with your Bug Net, or it will crumble to bits upon contact." — In-game Description, Skyward Sword.
  3. "The land of sands, eh... In the land of sands, I see you will find Tumbleweeds. Yessss... And something called an Ancient Flower. To catch a Tumbleweed, I foresee you swinging a net quickly just as one rolls across your path. As the name suggests, I see you can pick an Ancient Flower only by traveling back to ancient times." — Sparrot, Skyward Sword.
  4. "Looks like you're coming up short on materials, kid. Yep, you don't have enough Tumbleweeds. My grandpa's notes say you can find Tumbleweeds rolling around in the desert. You'll need a net to catch them, though." — Gondo, Skyward Sword.
  5. "Tumbleweeds sometimes roll across the sand in Lanayru Desert and other places. Tumbleweeds are used as a material to upgrade a variety of items. You can collect them with a Bug Net." — Fi, Skyward Sword.
