It works for the same amount of time as it normally would. If you wear the Potion Medal when you drink it and then quickly talk to him it will last as long as it would if you were wearing the Potion Medal (even though Medals technically are not supposed to work in Boss Rush).

The Remlit cat things seem to be the closest thing to a replacement. The Cuccos were pretty lame in TP anyways, so it's been since Majora's Mask that proper "don't attack them or else" Cuccos appeared in a 3D console Zelda (and even then Cuccos are very rare in MM) that I'm kind of numb to the feeling of not having them.

That's a real stretch... the upper hilt looks very different, the only thing they share is their basic shape, they're both just cutlasses.

I'm not saying that its literally the same weapon, but just that these are the only two times we've ever seen such a sword in Zelda. Just like how Ghirahim's design was obviously inspired by that sword in MM, although it doesn't appear that he is literally that weapon.

Damn this game had phenomenal characters. Ghirahim is my favorite... fuck I hope he returns but canon wise it probably isn't too likely. How popular is he anyway? He had me rolling half of the time.

I asked this in other thread but it didn't get answered. Before i go on to beat the game, i want to make sure i have all the hearts; just a tradition of mine. Anyway, is there only 18 Heart containers plus the two heart medals for the total of 20?

Edit~ Found my answer somewhere else and it is 18 + 2 heart medals.

Someone mentioned a female protagonist earlier when speaking of Karane. I think it'd be a good idea to have a choice since SS gave more freedom to players than all of the previous games.

I have a similar tradition. It feels wrong to go into the last battle without full hearts.

Ready to experience Skyward Sword again?

PK Gaming's hero mode V2

0423937C 3800000x
*X=00=Green Tunic\01=Skyloft Tunic*
*Non Permanent*

reasoning: It's refreshing to play through the game with different clothes and its a nice throwback to Wind Waker. The old version was buggy in that you could not access fi, you could not fly properly, and the game was just a mess. Thomas' version fixes that and so far from what i've played so far I have not run into any issues.

reasoning: Hero mode already starts you off with the fully powered skyward strike, I figured it might as well start you off with the fully powered dowsing ability. You will able to dowse for treasures, goddess cubes etc, as early as possible.[/s]

Removed until further testing. Use it at your own risk.

Done with the game. I can't say I care too much for Ghirahim. And I think it's mostly because he lasted too long in the game. You might have had some fights with Demise but there was no castle leading sequence or anything dramatic with him in the end. Ghirahim was just not that strong of a subvillain, Zant was much better IMO

On a side note, was great to see how Zelda was doing things while Link broke his ass running through the same Temples/areas

i like ghirahim better simply because he stayed consistent throughout the game. i remember zant being an utter badass and around the end of the game he turns into a complete retard. ghirahim OTOH was a goofy, theatrical character throughout. he also looked like a badass in his later form as well

this just reminds me how well ghirahim was animated. if you pay attention to him during his fight with impa, its awesome just how well they have him move and stuff

I just beat the game today and here's my take on things,

A) Fuck Demise, never have I taken so much pleasure in kicking a Zelda bosses ass, like I did his. Screw you lightening sword.

B) Gharahim is a fantastic character and him being Demise's sword (and opposite to Fi) was great move.

C) Speaking of Fi, fuck her. I hope she withers away just like Demise is in the Master Sword. I wouldn't have minded her if she wasn't so annoying.

I love the little things Nintendo did to tie this into the older games.

I vastly prefer this version of the legend over the one from Zelda II. This actually has substance to it. Zelda II was basically a spoiled brat getting pissed because he didn't get his way, his sister taking the brunt of it, and then him feeling guilty over it.

I love the fact that Skyloft becomes the City in the Sky, such a great nod.

Speaking of the City in the Sky, I think that the people living up there eventually die off and the Loftwings evolve into the Ooccoo.

The Picori originally game from the sky as well didn't they? Though they're kind of mouse like in appearance so I don't think they evolved from the people of Skyloft. Though maybe they lived along side the people of Skyloft.

I beat the game last night, and I'd still say that Ghirahim is my favorite Zelda villain. Like, ever. I guess I just really liked his more expressive personality over the likes of the usual "grr I'm mad I'm going to rule everything power blaaargh" that you saw out of Ganon and Zant and so forth. Demise looked neat and all (completely agree with the Oni Akuma comparison back on page one, by the way, I thought the same thing), but he was just...he felt boring as a villain after being treated to Ghirahim's casual malice.

Overall I'm satisfied with the storyline of the game, although I really wish that more had been made of Link's loftwing. They went to such lengths at the start of the game to point out that his loftwing itself and the connection between it and Link were something very special, but then after that all he was was a tool of transportation. I kept waiting for some point where it would act on its own or dive beneath the clouds to bail out Link when he was in trouble or something...felt like a big wasted opportunity.

Lastly, I want an Impa spinoff game please.

I really hope when they remake this game in ten years or so for whatever system it is, we get a "Master's Quest/Snake Tales" mode just to play through and see fully Zelda and Impa's acts. Perhaps a bit more considering how long Impa was alone.

Speaking of which, my girlfriend was really disappointed Groose didn't decide to stay in the past to keep her company during all that time. She really got into the Disney-lite story of it all.

Ganon couldn't leave the Golden Realm/Dark World in LttP. Agahnim was a puppet or manifestation of Ganon, not the real deal. As an aside, after an additional 20 years of iconography, Agahnim's clothing would suggest he was a Sheikah, or meant to be taken as one. That would be retconning, of course, since he predates the concept of the Sheikah.

It's "Ghirahim" and "Agahnim". Google is pretty handy for checking spelling, I hear.
