Completing the game will let you begin a new game in Hero Mode, by over-writing your completed game save. In Hero Mode, hearts will deplete twice as fast, and hearts and heart flowers will not appear unless you are carrying a heart medal. Additionally, you will begin the game with a fully powered up Skyward Strike attack, and will keep all of your collected insects and treasures from before. The Sheikah Stone will allow you full access to all of the hints since you will have already completed the game once. Finally, the boss rush challenge will also include the final boss as a foe.

To create better Potions, you'll need to catch Bugs with the Bug Net or Big Bug Net found throughout the Overworld and bring them to the Potion Lady's husband in the Skyloft Bazaar. You'll need both a potion you bought from the Potion Lady and the right number bugs in order to receive upgraded potions.

Occasionally in dungeons you can find small stools or chairs. Sitting on them and waiting a few seconds will start to refill all of your hearts. You can do this anytime and as often as you want.

Distract final boss
Just like Ganondorf in Twilight Princess, you can distract the final boss by taking out either your bug net or larger bug net(if you have it) and wave it around. He will follow the net.

When you play your harp around a group of butterflies in specific areas of the game, a Goddess Wall sometimes appears nearby. Hold your sword up to the light, then draw various symbols on the wall in order to obtain the related item. For a group of recovery hearts, draw a heart. For a bunch of rupees, draw a rupee. Drawing an arrow grants you arrows. Painting a circle gives you bombs. And if you can manage to draw the Triforce, you'll get some fairies.
