List of Sky Islands

Tri Force Heroes

Sky Islands appear in the Floating Garden, Deception Castle, Dragon Citadel, and the Sky Temple Stages.

Tears of the Kingdom

Sky Islands appear throughout the Sky in Tears of the Kingdom. Zonai-style architecture can be found atop these Sky Islands and they are covered with uniquely yellow-leafed Trees. The bottoms of these Sky Islands typically taper down to thin points supported by cores of ribbed stone. The earth surrounding some of these cores has eroded, leaving them exposed. Additionally, terrain and portions of structures from Sky Islands appear to have fallen to the ground below them as Ruins Rubble. Link is able to Recall these to travel upwards into the Sky.
