The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Gold Skulltulas

OOT skulltula.jpg

Many years ago, a wealthy family in Kakariko Village was cursed for their greed and were thus turned into Skulltula monsters. In order to break the curse, Link must destroy all one hundred of the Gold Skulltulas scattered about Hyrule and collect the Gold Skulltula Tokens that they drop as proof of his deed. When a certain number of Gold Skulltulas have been destroyed, a family member will return to human form and reward Link for his trouble.

Quest RewardsEdit

As you defeat Gold Skulltulas, each family member released from the curse will reward Link. These rewards are:

# Defeated Reward
10 Adult's Wallet: Holds up to 200 rupees.
20 Secrets|Stone of Agony: Rumbles when you run over secret holes. In the 3DS version, this is replaced by the {{im/oot|Secrets|Shard of Agony, which chimes and appears in the top-left corner of the top screen when near secret locations.
30 Giant's Wallet: Holds up to 500 rupees.
40 Bombchu (10): A rare type of bomb that runs along the ground, and crawls up walls and ceilings.
50 Piece of Heart: One-fourth of a Heart Container.
100 Huge Rupee: A huge, golden rupee worth 200 rupees. Each time you visit the man, he will give you another one, so effectively it is a limitless supply of rupees.

If you are playing on the Wii's Virtual Console, the {{im/oot|Secrets|Stone of Agony will be totally useless. Anyone playing this version can safely ignore this feature. The GameCube version will ask you if you want to use the rumble feature (unless you're playing with the Wavebird, which renders this item useless). In the 3DS version, the Stone of Agony is replaced by the Shard of Agony, which chimes and appears in the top-left corner of the top screen when near secret locations.

Hunting TipsEdit

Gold Skulltulas are scattered throughout the game world and can be found as both young and adult Link. Most often, Gold Skulltulas can be found at night, either clinging to walls or hiding in soft patches of soil. Here are some tips for hunting them:

Hunt at nightEdit

Many Gold Skulltulas don't appear during the daytime. You should play the Sun's Song on your ocarina to change the time of day before beginning your search.

Use your earsEdit

Gold Skulltulas make a distinct "shuffling" sound every few seconds when they move around. The sound can alert you to the presence of a nearby Skulltula, although it is difficult to use to pinpoint the creature's exact location.

Check your mapEdit

After you have defeated all the Gold Skulltulas in an area, a Gold Skulltula icon will appear next to the name of your current location on the map screen. If you don't see it, then there are still more Gold Skulltulas to find in the area.

  • Note: The world map DOES NOT cover Gold Skulltulas in Temples, Dungeons, the Kakariko Well or the Ice Cavern. To check if you have collected all tokens in those areas, you must enter that specific area and check the map of that place.

Check common hiding spotsEdit


Nintendo 64

After releasing the captured bugs, quickly press the C Down button again. This will capture one of the three bugs you just released so you can re-use them later.


A Gold Skulltula resides in every patch of soft soil in Hyrule except for the one next to the bean selling man in Zora's River. To evict the Skulltula from its burrow, empty a Bottle of Bugs nearby.

To capture bugs, look for rocks on the ground as they have the highest rate of causing bugs to appear. Pick up these rocks to release the bugs underneath and then quickly capture one with a bottle. You can also find bugs by cutting grass. Bugs are always found under the same rocks and grass and are not random. You can also buy them from potion shop for 50 rupees.

Gold Skulltulas can also be found inside crates and trees. Roll into either one to dislodge a Skulltula.

If on a wall or far away, Gold Skulltulas can only be reached with certain items, namely the Boomerang and Hookshot. When hunting, be sure you have both items.
