- — In-game description
The Hook Beetle is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. It is an upgrade to the Beetle, modified by an Ancient Robot in Lanayru Desert during Link's first visit to the region, as thanks for Link's saving the robot from Technoblins. The Hook Beetle is able to pick up and carry Bomb Flowers and other objects and drop them on top of things.
The Hook Beetle can be upgraded twice. It can upgrade into the Quick Beetle by using two Ancient Flowers, two Hornet Larvae, one Golden Skull, and 50 Rupees at the Scrap Shop in the Skyloft Bazaar. The Quick Beetle can then be upgraded into the Tough Beetle by using three Ancient Flowers, four Amber Relics, one Blue Bird Feather, one Goddess Plume, and 50 Rupees.
The Hook Beetle has gone through a change from the playable beta version shown at E3. The beta version shows the Hook Beetle with narrower, spiked jaws, opposed to the wider jaws of the current Hook Beetle.
