** The motion controls in general have been a point of division with nearly everyone. Some think they're revolutionary and adds an extra layer of [[NintendoHard challenge]] to the formula, while others simply can't get around the fact that they're still using motion controls, and consider the entire game to be unplayable because of them (in particular the flying and swimming sections, which seem to assume wrists are able to bend in impossible directions). Some reviewers suggested that it would sell better (despite that it was the fastest selling Zelda game ever) if the motion controls were omitted entirely or add an option for a traditional controller, while others say the game would be taking out an integral part of the gameplay if that happened and become nearly [[FakeDifficulty unplayable]], since the game was designed specifically with motion controls in mind.

* FanNickname: The section near the end where Link must fight through an army of weak enemies was dubbed "Zelda Musou" by fans. [[VideoGame/HyruleWarriors Maybe it gave Nintendo ideas?]]
* FandomRivalry: ''Skyward Sword'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', [[FanDumb and all because of the name.]] Well that, ''and'' both games were released in November of 2011, with both coming from well established action/adventure/fantasy franchises (''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' and ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'').

* AwesomeEgo: Groose, thanks to his bragging being completely hilarious and at times being able to back it up with a few {{badass}} moments.

** Groose has quite a lot of popularity among fans due to his CharacterDevelopment from {{Jerkass}} to {{Badass}}. Even people who dislike or don't care for ''Skyward Sword'' will often say they liked the character.

** Some fans think the game is the best ''Zelda'' ever (although they said the same thing about ''Twilight Princess'' when it came out) whereas others believe it to be the absolute worst of the series, in keeping with series tradition of every new entry being considered both the best and worst of the franchise by different parts of the fanbase.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite the [[BodyHorror formidable way]] Bilocyte infected poor Levias' body, the monster looks like a giant worm with some traits of a dog. Though it sounds weird, it's actually quite adorable.

** The biggest offender, in the opinion of fans, was Gamespot after giving the game a 7.5, the lowest score anywhere. Fans '''[[InternetCounterattack seethed]]''' with rage. Even worse was [[http://www.zeldainformer.com/2011/11/gamespot-amends-their-7510-skyward-sword-review.html the reason for it.]] They basically admitted that TheyJustDidntCare, and said that the reviewer somehow managed to ignore the several times the game tells you how to control it (specifically, he thought it was controlled through the infrared sensor, which might mean he was trying to keep the remote aimed toward the screen the whole time). To top it all off, despite admitting the error, he still stood firm to the score. Gamespot has [[NeverLiveItDown lost every ounce of credibility since then]], and their reviews got worse from there.

** The music. Many criticize the rather conservative use of ''a full orchestra'' in comparison to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' and [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2 its sequel]], expecting the same sort of ambition that those games had with their soundtrack. Considering the [[AwesomeMusic/TheLegendOfZelda sense of majesty]] that the series's music normally conveys, it's understandably disappointing that it's mostly ambient noise in this game, to the point that it's the first game in the series to have no theme that plays at the title screen. But bizarrely enough, if we examine the soundtrack by individual tracks, the game still has plenty of great pieces, arguably just as many as some of the top contenders in the franchise. The problem? They're mostly restrained to main events and boss themes, which means they are played once or twice in the whole game. Worse still, most of them have very little screen time, to the point that they go unnoticed by many players, and never to reappear again.

** A bit of an odd inversion from Gametrailers. While the score itself is good (9.1), by watching the review you wouldn't even guess they would give it one. The numerous contradictions in complaints/praises and some facts they just plain get wrong have a distinct air of [[TheyJustDidntCare ineptitude]] coursing through it.

** Fi, [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper in fine tradition]]. She often shoots down the player's attempts at exploring by insisting that they go where [[{{Railroading}} the plot specifically wants them to go]]. Her CaptainObvious moments, especially pointing out when your health and battery life are low even with the glowing red indicators on the screen do not help. Neither does her robotic personality. Of course, as BaseBreaker shows, Fi does have plenty of fans, so she isn't a complete scrappy, [[spoiler:[[AlasPoorScrappy and her sacrifice at the end turns some critics around.]]]]
