i. About This Guide
This is a guide that will fill you in on where to find each and every Melodia Idol in LostWinds for WiiWare.
Note that any and all in-game screenshots found in this guide were taken by myself.
What is a Melodia Idol?
One of the minor features of LostWinds is collecting shiny relics called Melodia Idols. These Melodia Idols are scattered throughout the places you explore, and there are 24 of them in all. They serve no real purpose other than for completionists who like to explore all the areas to their fullest.
These terms are used throughout the guide which may help you better understand where and how to retrieve certain Melodia Idols.
The Spirit of Wind, Enril aids Toku in his journey with her unique powers.
The Village Elder, Deo gives vital information to Toku during his journey.
Toku is the main protagonist. He is who you, the player, control.
An armored, crab-like Glorb made of stone. Using the power of Vortex on a Kalarab essentially transforms it into a boulder.
A barrier made of crystal. It reacts to high resonance frequencies produced by a Wind Stone.
A gate with a crystal embedded in the center. It reacts to high resonance frequencies produced by a Wind Stone.
A plant with three petals. It can glide Toku across long distances.
A chest containing a fragment of Deo's memory.
A gate made of wood. It can be removed by flinging a boulder, fruit, or even a Kalarab into it.
A white fungus that Toku and other objects can bounce off of to reach high and far surfaces.
A plant that propels Toku high into the air when struck by harsh wind.
A pressure pad opens a nearby door when pressure, or weight, is applied to it, such as if Toku stands on it or a boulder is placed upon it.
A ball that reacts to the power of Vortex, creating a high resonance frequency.
Stone Door/Circular Stone Door
These doors are opened by either a lock with a circular handle or a pressure pad.
Mysterious relics scattered across the land. They are simply collectibles that help keep track of the areas you have visited, as a Melodia Idol can be found in each area.
A barrier made of wood. It can be removed by burning it with fire from a nearby torch.
This power enables Enril to gust Toku and objects across short- to mid-range distances.
This power enables Enril to create slipstreams that guide Toku and objects along specific paths.
This power enables Enril to create vortices around objects and enemies and potentially fling them across long distances and into walls and the like.
A cape given to Toku by Deo that allows him to glide across long distances high and far.
The following guide reveals the location of each and every Melodia Idol and essentially how to obtain them in sequential order. They are further kept track of by distinct location and ulimately by memory chests.
1. After increasing Enril's strength, lift Toku onto the ledge on the left side of the room. You will spot a Melodia Idol.

Melodia Idol 4-2 - ...open the door...
Melodia Idol 4-3 - ...and claim your reward!
Shrine of the Meandering Wind
5. After receiving the power of Slipstream, pick up the Heli-Bud on the left side of the room after burning down the wooden barrier with the torch, and draw a slipstream path up towards the middle of the ceiling. Continue up and into another part of the room where a Melodia Idol sits behind a wooden barrier. Burn it down with the torch in the back area to collect the Melodia Idol.

7. To the right of the great windmill in the west district of Hilltop Village (the district immediately east of the area where Deo is located), pick up the Heli-Bud and draw a slipstream up and to the right. You will spot a Melodia Idol sitting on a platform.

15. In the area beyond the crystal gate, use the Kalarab near the entrance to break the wooden gate at the bottom of the area. Then, retrieve the boulder on a platform above, bring it through the wooden gate and place it on one of the two pressure pads. Take the fruit and place it on the other to open both ceiling gates. Gust Toku up and around to the other room where a Poyak is, as well as a Melodia Idol in the corner. You can also use just the fruit, but getting around may be slightly more tedious.

Melodia Idol 15-2 - ...but getting around may be slightly more tedious.
16. In the area with a narrow stream, retrieve the Heli-Bud seed located at the bottom right. Bring it back to the entrance of the area and plant it. Then, use the power of Slipstream to draw a path as far up as you can. At the top on a rail platform is a Melodia Idol.

22. In the same area where the third memory chest is located, use the Jumbrella Cape to glide Toku up against the cliff to the right. You will spot a Melodia Idol on the side of the cliff near the peak of the cape's power, so it may be slightly difficult to obtain.
Melodia Idol 22-1 - First, make your way to the side of the cliff.
Melodia Idol 22-2 - Next, glide Toku straight up the side.
Melodia Idol 22-3 - Then, grab the Melodia Idol before the Jumbrella Cape gives out!
