Hyrule Warriors Gold Skulltulas Locations

Gold Skulltula is a collectible which only appears for a while, and disappears afterwards. If by any chance you miss collecting any of them, you’ll have to replay a stage to make it reappear.

Every time a Gold Skulltula appears on the battlefield, you’ll receive a notification on your screen. You need to travel to the area marked by spiderweb on your mini-map and search the area for it.

The Armies of Ruin: Hyrule Field

Skulltula #1 – Only in Hard Mode
After Zelda prays to the Great Fairy, get to the area near the Hyrule Castle and travel to the right side. You’ll find the collectible on top of a wall. Remember that you need to be playing with Link and have his Knight’s Sword to get this.

Skulltula #2
Once you reach the 1,000 KO points, head over to the top of the Hyrule Castle Keep and travel to the southern side of the Abandoned Keep’s entrance.

The Sheikah Tribesman: Eldin Caves

Skulltula #3
After killing 1,000 enemies, travel to the area beneath Stone Square Keep and enter the tunnel there. While in the tunnel, travel to the east side and toss a bomb at the boulder to reveal the Skulltula.

There are some conditions to make this Skulltula appear: you need to be playing with Impa and must protect all Bombchus while fighting with Wizzro.

To make this Skulltula appear, you need to drop down the Gohma’s HP to about fifty percent. As soon as it appears, travel to the area located on the west side of the Great Fairy’s Fountain.

Do note that you’ll need Hookshot and Link’s Fire Rod to make the Skulltula appear.

The Sorceress of the Valley: Valley of Seers

Skulltula #7 – Only in Hard Mode
This one can be really hard to acquire since it requires you to take out Volga within three minutes after the scenario commences.

Ganondorf’s Return: Gerudo Desert

Skulltula #27 – Only in Hard Mode
This Skulltula requires quite a lot of conditions, but you can complete them in any given order. To get this collectible, you’re required to take out all Lizalfos Captains, Aeralfos Captains, gain hold of all enemy keeps, and defeat two giant bosses.

March of the Demon King: Valley of Seers

Skulltula #30 – Only in Hard Mode
To get this collectible, you must take out all fake Impas before killing the real Impa – this is very crucial. To make it a little easier, note that the real Impa will always be near the location of West Ruins Keep.

Another thing to keep in mind is that the real Impa is equipped with Giant Blade instead of Naginatas. After fulfilling the conditions, travel to the Enemy Base Keep and check the area near the northeast side to claim the reward.

You need to clear out the enemies in such a manner that you reach your 1,000 KOs before travelling inside the Arbiter’s Keep. As for the location of the Skulltula, it will appear at the threshold of the S.

Desert Keep – near the west entrance to be exact.

Skulltula #34 – Only in Hard Mode
You need to reach 2,000 KOs and your HP must be above at least thirty per cent to make this Skulltula appear.
