Cursed Rich Man
Cursed form of the Rich Man
The Cursed Rich Man is a character found in Ocarina of Time. He is the head of the Cursed Rich Family, residing in the House of Skulltula in Kakariko Village.
The entire family was once very wealthy, but was put under a curse by the Gold Skulltulas, due to their greed. While they have an appearance as a Skulltula, there still some human limbs that are visible. The only way to lift the curse is to collect the Gold Skulltulas that are found throughout Hyrule. In return for finding the Gold Skulltulas, the Cursed Rich Man promises to make Link very rich.
At each increment of 10 Gold SKulltula tokens collected, from 10 to 50, one of the Cursed Rich Man's five children will be freed from the curse, returning to their Hylian form. In order to return the Cursed Rich Man to his original form, all 100 Gold Skulltulas will need to be collected. Once freed from the Curse, the rich man will keep his promise, giving Link a Huge Rupee, worth 200 rupees. Each time Link revisits the House of Skulltula, he can speak with the Cursed Rich Man to acquire another Huge Rupee.
The Cursed Rich Man is known as far away as Zora's Domain, as one of the Zora references the Cursed Rich Family as being the only ones that could possibly afford to purchase the Zora Tunic.
