Considered by many to be one of the greatest games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was originally released for the Nintendo 64 way back in 1998. The first fully 3D entry in this beloved franchise, the Ocarina of Time took players on an expansive journey throughout the mystical lands of Hyrule.
God, writing that sentence makes me feel old. I was still a kid when this game first came out and now I’m a grown-ass man with a job, a wife, debt, and crippling depression. Do you know what’s even more baffling? Somehow, Nintendo was capable of releasing an even worse version of this game 23 years later. They had an incredible port of Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 3DS and just ignored it. I get some people want the nostalgic feeling of playing the old N64 version, but it’s weird to act like an objectively better version of this game doesn’t exist. Also, where the hell is my Buck Bumble remake? You’ll release a random-ass game like Win Back: Covert Ops, but not a game with the best opening theme song on the system?!
Anyway, here’s how to get the Adult and Giant’s Wallet in Ocarina of Time so you can hold the maximum amount of Rupees.
How to Get the Adult Wallet
In order to get the Adult Wallet, you need to destroy and collect 10 Gold Skulltula Tokens. Once you have 10 Gold Skulltula Tokens, make your way to Kakariko Village and enter the House of Skulltula. This will be directly across from the structure being built by the construction workers.
Once you’re inside, you will be greeted by a massive mutated Skulltula who informs you they’ve been cursed. In order to break the curse, you’ll have to kill a few Skulltula. For the unfamiliar, these are spiders around the same size as Skullwalltula with a golden abdomen and a distinctive scraping sound. They can be found on walls, dislodged from trees by rolling into them, or lured out by dropping bugs onto some Soft Soil. There are a lot, but you can easily acquire 10 tokens before going into the second dungeon, Dodongo’s Cavern.
Once you’ve collected 10 Gold Skulltula Tokens, you’ll see a person dancing and celebrating in the corner. Speaking with them will reward you with the Adult Wallet, which increases your Rupee carrying capacity from 99 to 200.
How to Get the Giant’s Wallet
The Giant’s Wallet will take a little more time as you will need 30 Gold Skulltula Tokens. If you’re diligent, you can get a little over 30 before you complete the Inside Jabu-Jabu’s Belly dungeon. I strongly recommend using ZeldaDungeon.net’s fantastic Ocarina of Time walkthrough, which details the location of every Gold Skulltula.
After getting all 30 Gold Skulltulas, head back to Kakariko Village and go into the house. You will see another person dancing around like an idiot. Free him and he will reward you with the Giant’s Wallet. This bumps up your Rupee amount from 200 to 500, which makes it the largest wallet in the entire game.
The Giant’s Wallet is definitely worth grabbing before you return to Hyrule Castle and are thrust forward in time. Keep in mind: Once you transform into Adult Link, you cannot go back to being a child until you finish the Forest Temple. Make sure you have grabbed all the Gold Skulltula Tokens you can as young Link before ripping that sword out of its pedestal.
