- "An insect native to Skyloft. It's very popular with children."
- — In-game description
Sky Stag Beetles are creatures from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. They can be found throughout Skyloft and are one of the first insects encountered in the game. They can also occasionally be found on Beedle's Island.
Sky Stag Beetles are slow-moving, usually found on walls or trees. Link can roll into the wall or tree to knock them down, then pick them up by walking to them. They can, however, be crushed by a subsequent roll, or by running up the surface before knocking them off. If Link does not pick them up quickly enough, they will right themselves from their fall and fly away.
Like the other insects in the game, Sky Stag Beetles are a Potion Infusion component, used by Bertie to upgrade the stock potions Luv sells at the Bazaar. Beetles are one ingredient in the Stamina Potion and Air Potion upgrades.
