"Horde" Sequence Break
When battling Ghirahim's monster horde, the second barrier will spawn Moblins. If you run up and over a Moblin's shield, you can leap over the wall to the layer below, bypassing a large amount of the fight and landing near the fourth barrier with the Stalfos.
300 Rupees
When you arrive for the first time at the Pirates Hideout in Lanayru Sandsea, you will notice that the front of the structure resembles a creature with a nose above some teeth. Fly your beetle into a nostril, and pilot it to collect three silver rupees for a grand total of 300 rupees.
Enemy weaknesses
There are some quicker methods to defeating certain enemies than hacking and slashing that some players overlook.

ChuChus: If you roll a bomb into a Chuchu of any kind or size, it will absorb it and blow up just like that. Great against the larger ones.

Technoblins: They can be tricky to deal with early in the game since their weapon is charged and they run from bombs. Slingshot it and it will be harmless.

Keese: (any kind) They are perched on ceilings in groups, but using the Scattershot you can take out several at once, and it works when they're flying too.

Moldorm: When underground, if you dash you can catch up to it's tail when it's docile so you don't have to wait around a corner.

Staldra: If you purposely cut off only one head, you can horizontally strike it when the head regrows to strike all three. No need to adjust your angle.
Getting into Beedle's Shop
Have you seen a building flying around Skyloft and don't know how to get in? Simply use your slingshot to ring the bell and Beedle will stop and lower the rope.

Inside you'll find goodies such as the ever so useful Bug Net, as well as upgrades for your Wallet.
Getting into Zelda's Room
To get into Zelda's room you need to Clawshots. Once you have those go to the roof of the Knight's Academy and use the Clawshots to climb into the chimney and drop in. Once in, below you will be Geapora bathing and to your right will be the crawlspace which leads into Zelda's room.

Once in there you can obtain the following:
  • Gratitude Crystal (Night)
  • Piece of Heart
Moonlight Merchant
The Moonlight Merchant is a Sheikah Stone that appears in Waterfall Cave when the Goddess Harp is played. Once summoned he will sell you items such as Goddess Plume, Dusk Relics, and other rare items for 100 - 200 Rupees.
Tips for Dodging Ghirahim's Attacks in Skyview Temple
I found his attacks quite difficult to block, so instead I took to dodging his attacks.
Hold Z to Target him, and when he attacks with projectiles jump to left or right to avoid them. And when he uses a dash attack jump backwards repeatedly to avoid getting hit, works most of the time given there is space to backflip.

25th Anniversary
During the cutscene right before the Wing Ceremony, the announcer states that it is the 25th anniversary of the Knight Academy, much like it is the 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda!
extra 300 rupees
(you need clawshot for this)

Go to the entrance of the first sacred flame dungeon. use the clawshots to get onto the edge on the wall behind the temple where the goddess cube is. once on top of it, use your beetle and launch it to the edge on the left. And there you will find a gold ruppee(300)! Goodie!
Hidden Wii Sports Resort Skydiving Easter Egg
If you fly up as high as you can over certain islands like the lumpy pumpkin or bamboo island and allow yourself to free fall all the way down to the island, flying squirrel like creatures will gather around you in midair. Try to glide into as many as you can to form a ring together, much like in the skydiving game from wii sports resort. You will get a red rupee if you manage to link together all 10 squirrels before you hit the ground
Rocket Stone
Remember the Gossip stone in Ocarina of Time? Remember how if you placed a bomb next to it, it would shoot straight into the sky?

Try it out in Skyward Sword for the nostalgia factor.
They don't just give Treasures
If you shoot a Sheikah stone with an arrow it will drop a Green Rupee.
Triforce emblem for save file
Defeat the final boss on Hero Mode and save the clear file. That file will now be marked with the Triforce Emblem.
