The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass/Headscratchers

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • In Phantom Hourglass, why doesn't Link just throw Black Rupoors away so they don't have a negative effect on his wallet?
    • Because the Black Rupoor isn't actually a stone, it's a solidified black hole in magical stasis. It activates itself only when in contact with air, so it will only be effective when Link digs it out. And once it's out, it'll suck any Rupees in its effect radius, and the rupees closest to it will be, invariably the ones in Link's... uh... pockets? Anywhat, then it destroys itself taking the Rupees away. So it's not a matter of "taking or not taking", it's about finding at all. Hey, you asked.
