With the final reward for collecting every Gratitude Crystal in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD being the Tycoon Wallet, putting the effort in pays off – literally. Here’s how to find them all.
With the Bug Net, Medals, and more requiring a large number of Rupees to purchase, not being able to carry enough money is a frustration veteran The Legend of Zelda fans know all too well.
Link’s Wallet can be upgraded, though. For the biggest one – the Tycoon Wallet with a whopping 9,000 Rupee capacity – you’ll need to collect every Gratitude Crystal in Skyward Sword HD for Batreaux. It’s no simple task as there are 80 of them in the game.

All Gratitude Crystal locations in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
To find Batreaux and start the Gratitude Crystal hunt, you first need to complete the Missing Kukiel side quest. Finish the mission and you’ll then be able to collect the Crystals.
While 80 seems like a huge number, many of the collectibles are given to you in a lump sum as side quest rewards. 15 of the Gratitude Crystals are found individually though, meaning you’ve got to go on a little scavenger hunt.

You can start finding them at any point but if you speak to Batreaux after completing the Sandship level, Fi will give you a new dowsing option to locate the individual ones.
#1-5: Complete Missing Kukiel side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
After placing the Ruby Tablet in the Statue of the Goddess in Skyloft, you’ll find a panicking Wryna outside searching for her daughter, Kukiel. You can speak to other residents for clues to her whereabouts, but the quickest way is just to head straight to the graveyard in the southeast part of town.
Interact with the tombstone closest to the tree and the storage shed door will click open. Go through it and follow the path until you reach a hidden house with Batreaux the demon inside. Turns out, the girl was visiting him. She returns home and the Gratitude Crystals side quest becomes active. For the first five, sleep until morning and then return to a now-happy Wryna.
#6: East Skyloft
On the east side of Skyloft, you’ll see some houses with a pumpkin patch nearby. Next to this is a tree. Go behind it and you’ll find the Crystal.
#7: Through Waterfall Cave
Head through Waterfall Cave where you searched for your Red Loftwing at the start of the game. Once you’re out the other side, you’ll spot the Crystal in the middle of three health hearts.
#8: In a small alcove
From the last collectible, head down the slope to the small alcove where Groose was holding your Red Loftwing captive. The Crystal will be there.
#9: On a ledge north of the Bazaar
Directly behind the stepping stones leading to Waterfall Cave, you’ll see a small wooden bridge heading up the cliffs. Go up it and look to the left where you’ll spot the Crystal sitting in the corner.
#10: Inside the Knight Academy
This one is probably the easiest to find. Enter the Knight Academy in Skyloft through the main double doors upstairs and then immediately turn left. The Crystal is inside the plant pot.
#11: In Link’s bedroom
Head downstairs in the Knight Academy and go into the first door on the left. This is Link’s bedroom, where the Crystal is on his desk next to an open book.
#12: In the Sparring Hall
You’ll need to use the Beetle to get this one, which you obtain in Skyview Temple. Go to the Sparring Hall and look up – the Crystal is in the rafters.
#13: On a ledge south of the Knight Academy
From the Sparring Hall, head south and go down the stairs. From here, head right to the side of the cliff and look down. You’ll see the Crystal on a ledge down below, just float down using your Sailcloth to grab it.
#14: In Parrow and Orielle’s house
This Crystal is tucked away in Parrow and Orielle’s house. Head south of the Bazaar, enter their home, and you’ll find it sat in the corner next to the fireplace.
#15: Behind the Light Tower
Head to the Plaza and go up the Light Tower ladder. Walk around the tower and you’ll see the Crystal.
#16: In the Lumpy Pumpkin
Fly over to Pumpkin Landing on your Loftwing. Enter the Lumpy Pumpkin and sleep if it’s not nighttime already. Then head upstairs and the Crystal will be on the counter.
#17: Outside the Lumpy Pumpkin
While still on Pumpkin Landing, go outside and head down the pathway to the right. The Crystal is hidden behind some breakable pots.
#18: On Beedle’s Island
Once you’ve got the Beetle, go to Beedle’s Air Shop during the daytime and sleep in his bed until nighttime. He won’t know you’re there and will fly to his island.
Leave the store, go up the ladder, and look straight ahead – you’ll see the Crystal on top of the propellor.
#19: Top of the waterfall
You’ll need the Double Clawshots for this one. You obtain them in the Lanayru Desert. Afterward, return to Skyloft and head to the west side.
Use your new item to zip up the floating platforms to the top of the waterfall. The Crystal in the water at the mouth.
#20: In Zelda’s bedroom
To get this last individual Crystal, you’ll need to sleep to make it nighttime if it’s not already. Then head to the south portion of the Knight Academy to where there are vines on the wall. You’ll spot a chimney – use your Double Clawshots to enter.
Crawl through the crawlspace and drop down into Zelda’s room where the collectible is waiting.
#21–30: Wounded Loftwing side quest – 10 Gratitude Crystals
Head to the Plaza and you’ll see Parrow with a thought bubble above his head. Speak to him and he’ll tell you Orielle is missing. Hop on your Loftwing and fly southwest – you’ll soon see her stranded on a small island. She asks you to get her some medicine.
Fly back to her brother and he’ll give you Mushroom Spores. Head back to the girl, hand her the Bottle, and you’ll get five Gratitude Crystals. Return to Parrow and you’ll get another five.
#31–35: Owlan’s Request side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
Complete Faron’s portion of Song of the Hero and then head to the Knight Academy. Go upstairs to Instructor Owlan’s room and talk to him, where he’ll ask you for a new plant of sorts.
Go to the Faron Woods and Dowse to find Oolo, a Kikwi. Use Scrapper to take him back up to the Sky and show him to Owlan for five Crystals.
#36–40: Haunted Bathroom side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
After beating the Imprisoned for the first time, at nighttime, go to the bathroom on the lowest level of the Knight Academy. A voice will tell you it needs paper urgently – we’ve all been there. During the day, you’ll find Cawlin in the hallway who asks you to deliver a love letter.
There are two ways to complete the quest but the easiest is to speak to Karane. Afterward, speak to Pipit, and then back to Karane. A hilarious scene will play out and then you’ll get five Crystals.
#41–45: Fledge’s Strength side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
You can’t start this quest until you’ve beaten the Lanayru Mining Facility. Once you have, buy a Stamina Potion from the Potion Shop in the Bazaar. Speak to Fledge in the Knight Academy and he’ll tell you to visit him in his room. Sleep in his bed and he’ll appear, attempting to do pushups. Give him the potion.
Beat the Ancient Cistern dungeon and return, giving him another potion. Progress the story slightly and come back for a final time, where you’ll get five Gratitude Crystals.
#46–50: Clean for Mallara side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
Again, after finishing the Lanayru Mining Facility, visit Mallara’s house in the southwest corner of Skyloft. She’ll offer to pay you to clean up for her.

Once you’ve beaten the Imprisoned for the second time, visit Sparrot at his house in the east of town. He’ll ask you to find him a new crystal ball.

#61–65: Pumpkin Harvest side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
After beating the Imprisoned twice and repaying Pumm for breaking the Lumpy Pumpkin chandelier, head back to Pumpkin Landing and speak to Kina. She’ll ask for help harvesting pumpkins.

#66–70: Missing Fun Wheel side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
Once you’ve reached the Isle of Songs, you can now go to Fun Fun Island to the southwest. Speak to Dodoh and he’ll tell you his party wheel fell to the land below – guess what you’re going to have to do!
Head to the Desert Entrance bird statue in Lanayru Province and blow up the rocks to the south. Hit the Timeshift Stone, climb the vines, and grab onto the rail. Stay on until it stops moving, hop off, and you’ll see the wheel. Go back to him for five Crystals.
#71–75: Unwanted Admirer side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
After using the Item Check at the Bazaar and speaking to Peatrice a few times, speak to her father at his house to the south at night. He will tell you someone’s been pestering his daughter. Talk to her again and she’ll ask to meet you at her home.
Either accept or deny her undying love for you, and you’ll get five Gratitude Crystals from either her or her dad.
#76–80: Beedle’s Beetle side quest – 5 Gratitude Crystals
Defeat Bilocyte and then go back to the Thunderhead to an island in the northwest and talk to Strich.
