Recall will be the fourth Zonai ability Link will possess on Sky Islands. It can be obtained by entering the Temple of Time for the first time and touching the cracked stone. A cutscene will then play showing Zelda giving Link the Recall ability.

In salvage mode, Link’s immediate surroundings will turn monochrome, while salvageable items will be highlighted in yellow. Once an object has been selected, it will stop moving and begin to return to its original position or orientation. A timer will also appear showing how much time is left before the recovery effect ends and the object moves back to normal.

Most objects will show a line indicating their reverse trajectory or reverse rotation.

It is possible to extend the recovery effect by continuously using it on the item as time runs out or by manually canceling the effect.
