Location and Uses

Skyward Sword

In Skyward Sword, each Medal gives Link various enhancements when equipped in the Adventure Pouch. They are usually found in Goddess Cube Chests, or can be purchased from Beedle after upgrading the Wallet. Medals either passively boost Link's abilities or alter the results of things appearing in the overworld, and they consume one space in the Adventure Pouch as a result.

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, each Medal is awarded as an achievement for meeting the fulfillment condition of a particular challenge. Medals come in three categories: bronze, silver, and gold. The categories for these Medals usually serve as an indication for the difficulty in which it takes to accomplish the required tasks. Certain Medals are only attainable through paid DLC, such as those requiring Warriors to complete certain Maps in Adventure Mode. Collecting Medals does not result in anything, and collecting all of them only awards in the final Medal, the True Hero Medal.

When a Medal is obtained, a post will be automatically generated to Miiverse, provided that the option to do so is not turned off in the settings. The Miiverse post simply announces that the Medal has been obtained, allowing others to comment on the achievement.
