Golden Skulls are collectible items found within Skyward Sword. Despite its shimmering gold appearance, rumor has that it isn't made of pure gold. Opposite to its much more common variation, Golden Skulls are rarely dropped by Bokoblins. Instead, they are more frequently found in treasure chests and won through mini-games. They sell for approximately 100 Rupees, but can also be bought for double the price from the Moonlight Merchant. Additionally, they can be used to upgrade certain items.
