Location and Uses
Rupoors are usually found hidden under Rocks and grass in Four Swords. If one of the Links picks one up, a random amount of Rupees will drop from him. If the Links are under the influence of Rupee Fever, the amount dropped can be doubled if they are taken back.
Rupoors appear on the Ghost Ship after one of the Cubus Sisters advises Link to gather Treasure from one of two Treasure Chests in Phantom Hourglass. Opening the Chest that the Cubus Sister recommends results in Link finding 10 Rupoors. On Harrow Island, Link can find 10 and 50 Rupoors. In a maze found in the Isle of the Dead, instead of walls the maze is made of 10 and 50 Rupoors. The result of collecting a Rupoor is that the amount that the Rupoor is worth will subtracted from Link's Rupees.
Link can pick Rupoors up while digging during the Thrill Digger minigame and lose 10 Rupees in Skyward Sword. Shooting his Slingshot or Bow at a black Rupee Ore will also yield Rupoors. On Fun Fun Island, Link can land on a loser space, indicated by a Rupoor. If Link does, he must give Dodoh his Rupees. Rupoors can also be found in certain underground tunnels. Link can change Rupoors into Rupees of random value by sprinkling Glittering Spores on them.
