Rupee Likes are recurring enemies in The Legend of Zelda series.[1] They are smaller versions of Like Likes, with a Rupee attached to a stalk at their tops.

Rupee Like
Appears in caves, dungeons, etc. This Rupee Like has a Rupee dangling from its head stalk. This clever lure attracts greedy and delicious heroes.

Rupee Likes hide under the Rupees at the top of their stalks and use it to lure Link in The Minish Cap. They come in 3 types: Green Rupee Likes, Blue Rupee Likes, and Red Rupee Likes. The color of the Rupee indicates how many Rupees they eat at a time from Link. Rupee Likes appear be shorter than Like Likes, not counting their stalks, and can only engulf Link up to his neck. When they have captured him, they hold his head with their stalks.

If a Rupee Like engulfs Link, it will suck his Rupees away and continue to do so until he struggles free or if he runs out of Rupees. Rupee Likes are commonly found hiding in a large group of Rupees and are usually found at a corner or the middle of the formation. The Rupees they carry on their stalks are real and can be claimed among the undigested Rupees when they are defeated. Rupee Likes will continue to chase down a Rupeeless Link, though they deal no damage.

A safe way to avoid falling prey to a Rupee Like is to collect free-standing Rupees with items such as the Boomerang or the Gust Jar.

Phantom Hourglass

Rupee Likes are very large in Phantom Hourglass. Rupee Likes can suck Link in like a vacuum from a distance.

A Link Between Worlds

Rupee Likes have slightly larger shadows in comparison to normal Rupees in A Link Between Worlds. They will always drop a Green Rupee upon defeat, even if the Rupee Like is a Blue Rupee Like, Red Rupee Like, or purple Rupee Like. Even after defeat, Link cannot regain Rupees that have been stolen from him. Green, Blue, and Red Rupee Likes appear all throughout Hyrule and Lorule, while the purple Rupee Like only appears in Lorule's Rupee Rush Mini-Game.
