Are the gray parts of the top 2 rupees supposed to gray, like the background? It looks like mistake in rendering transparency. --Menchi 02:24, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

They are. These pixels were transparent in the game. I used the grey background to show this. Derrick Coetzee 03:15, 23 Feb 2004 (UTC)

This is confirmed by the "scrolling items list" that appears if you let the game sit and go into demo mode. On that the background is black, and so too are the rupee details. NO other Zelda game since (except perhaps Zelda 2, not sure) has transparent highlights, but instead has the entire shape done with black pixels (like in Zelda 3, shown). The original Zelda only ever had about two colours per sprite/tile which is why they "cheated" and used the background to add a third colour. This is likely due to some technological limit or other.--Garrett 04:54, 12 Apr 2005 (GMT)

Change the caption to the image, no games were ever called Zelda 1 or Zelda 3. The only numbered title was Zelda II & the time sequence doesn't follow the order they were made. change it to either "the first and third Legend of Zelda installments" or use their titles. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) .

If ever there was a need for {{sofixit}}, the above comment would be it... Anyway, I went ahead and changed the caption. Amalas =^_^= 18:35, 8 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey folks... Koholint Island wasn't mentioned in the fictional lands of the Legend of Zelda series, so I added it. The one thing that I am limited by is that I played the original Game Boy game, which had just "single" rupees (colored in gray due to the system limitations, but worth single rupees) and a rupee max of 999. I could mention this and even include a picture, but there is also the DX Game Boy Color remake of the game. Besides colorizing the game... I don't know if they simply colorized the existing rupees as green or if they added different denominations now that they have color. Someone else who knows this should probably be the one to add info on the Link's Awakening incarnation of this stuff. 16:52, 15 September 2006 (UTC) IsmailReply[reply]

Wait just a time unit of your choice...[edit]

I don't remember seeing any silver rupees in Twilight Princess. Is it's inclusion just an assumption? Totema1 04:33, 27 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They're rare, but they're in. Check the treasure vault near the final boss. --HeroicJay 22:27, 18 December 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I disagree with the deletion nomination. See Hard drives are cheap. Specifically, see the passage that reads: There is no reason why there shouldn't be a page for every Simpsons character, and even a table listing every episode, all neatly cross-linked and introduced by a shorter central page. Every episode name in the list could link to a separate page for each of those episodes, with links to reviews and trivia. Each of the 100+ poker games can have its own page with rules, history, and strategy. Jimbo Wales has agreed: Hard disks are cheap. I see this article as falling under that category, and rupees are notable enough (given the popularity of the series and references from other games). I can see someone finding this information interesting at the very least, and I really don't see any reason to disagree with it. Template removed for now, please talk here before adding it back.

  • I'm not going to put it back, as it's against the {{prod}} rules: instead, I'm going to nominate the article at AfD. Hard disk space is not my concern: my concern is an article that does not meet the criteria for inclusion in Wikipedia. Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate collection of information - I'm looking specifically at the part that mentions "video game guides," which this is. The numerical values of Rupees have nothing to do with what Zelda games are or why they're important: as such, they have no place on Wikipedia. - Chardish 18:13, 3 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I've merged this into The Legend of Zelda (series) per the VFD discussion. Voretus 16:06, 20 February 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
