Tri Force Heroes

In Tri Force Heroes, the Fabled Butterfly is a Material used for crafting the Sword Master Suit. It is the rarest Material from the Sky Realm, and can only be collected by completing all of the realm's Drablands Challenges, or won at random in the Coliseum.

The first volume of the Drablands Diary describes the author's hardships from adventuring into the Woodlands, mentioning that the sight of a delicate Butterfly gave him the determination to survive. This text alludes to the single, bright green Butterfly that is hidden in each Level of the Woodlands. However, there is no significance to finding this Butterfly.
